What you need to know about me

I ain't even lvl 30 yet, I started playing LOL about 4 months ago. It may seem that I suck, but i am highly experienced in the MOBA genere, concretely from Smite and some Dota 2. I often play with my friends that are lvl 3o, so I get in matches with people who sometimes are gold. That made my learning curve harder, but may have also had the effect of making me reach higher lvls with my play time.

I play yi when I feel like wining, but sometimes you have to lane with fiora as a partner in a freakin poke lane, making it hard to carry

What you need to know about Yi

Yi is an ADC. Don't let anyone tell you he is not. I think people asume a marksman is an ADC, when it's not true, because that would make teemo a marksman (Teemo is also a racist), everybody should just realise that ADC's can be meele (mele, melle, melee, meelle? how do you spell that ****).

Wait, why the **** do you say that Yi and teemo are racist? You may ask

Because they are fast, anyone in this game with high movement speed should be considered racist.


Cos it'z funny and ppl r confusd when u say dat.

Runes and Masteries


How tryhard are you? Are you really going to buy runes for this? Or do you allready have all the runes in the game? Just take whatever ad runes you have I have attack speed, they are usefull because you won't be seeing attack speed in a while with this build.


How do people put those beautyfull tables? Whatever, you'll have to excuse me because this is my first guide.

I should say, go with the 2nd and 4th branch from the damage masteries, and put the rest in the deffence.

Why u bay dis nub?!?!?!!?!??

You are probably thinking this since my guide is different from others, but that's the point, we don't want to repeat the same build. But I tell you that obviously my build is the best and everyone else is wrong, so empty your cup ( ermergherd references(end et's fenny cos it's lik a chinis referns frum som master (jist lik yi ermegherd dis so awsum))) from all opinions of master yi, because there is only one right answer, and of course i know it.

Attention: If you did not see any reference to sarcasm in the previous paragraph I recommend that you find the nearest window and jump through it.

Ok, now moving on to the items

Ravenous Hydra
This is just awsum sauce. It will help you clear wave very easily, it gives you tons of ad and lifesteal. Now that you have one of this, either rape your lane oponent, or go gank if you can't, because you should be getting kills now, so you can ball outa controll.

Berserker's Greaves

With you ult, ghost and this, you will be soooo racist. It gives you attack speed, necessary for this build since you won have so much, but you ult makes it so you don't really need any of that early.

Frozen Mallet

I just love the frozen mallet. **** warmogs, for 300hp the slow and the ad are much better. In yi's case, the slow will help you when dem bichies try to run away when you start chasing them with your ult, and the 700 hp will let you survive + making you look scary with all those bars on your head.

Statikk Shiv

Why the **** would you not buy this ****. Attack speed, sum critz, n dat passive with all of it's overpowerdness of doom. All of that and the movement speed make it a must have, specially when you are just runnin like a niger through the map like that.

Infinity Edge




That's all you need to know.



If the enemy team hasn't surrended yet it's obviously because you haven' got eghnouf damage (i will never remember how to spell that, trust me i've tried)

So now is when you get the The Bloodthirster

Survabavility? You don't need to worry about surviving when everyone is DEAD. But, now you have tons of lifesteal and MOAR damage.

If you want some more hp or protection, get a warmog or a guardian angel, use your imagination ffs.

Scrying Orb

Oh yeah, and why this **** you may ask. Well, that's because it's under rated, you can check bushes and the fog of war from far away, so you don't need to run into rengar, sejuani and 3 teemos hiding in a brush.

This is not the end

Yoy're wrong title, this is in fact the end, great song though.

Today you've learned a lot of things. How to Yi, what beeing racist trully means in LOL, and that scrying orb is awesome.

I hoped you liked my first guide (I don't think the speed racist one really counts). You many run into me making other guides about stuff i actually know, like:

    Stupid lol terminologies that should be introduced into the community because the're hillarious

And much, much more.
