Greater Mark of Attack Speed=Increase attack speed to make it easier to kill.

Greater Seal of Health=Increase Hp so that will last longer.

Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction=Having a greater chance to kill in early games and earn lots to gold.

Greater Quintessence of Cooldown Reduction=Also the same reason as Greater Glyph of Focus

Guide Top


The masteries that i have chosen is 24/0/6.The reason is that most Masteries that he needed is in offense,like attack speed and attack.
Summoner's Wrath =Able to allow exhaust to decrease the champion's Magic Resistance and armour. And also get 5 AP and AD while ignite is on cooldown.
Brute Force =Increase damage to make it easily to get kills.
Alacrity =More attack speed for him easily to get kills.
Deadliness =Increase a bit of critical chance so we have even higher chances of getting critical hits= higher damage.
Weapon Expertise =Armour penetration for higher physical damage.
Havoc =Increase massive damage and very useful to get kills.
Lethality =I can't recommend it more to characters like Master Yi who spams Attack Speed and Critical damage as this mastery increases your Critical Strike damage.
Vampirism =To prevent yourself from dying and an advantage of life steal.
Sunder =Same reason as Weapon Expertise
Good Hands =Since you kill a lot when soloing a champion, many will like to gank Master Yi down to prevent him from killing even more and some would want the extra gold.Good hands to help you take down even more champions to help your teammate kill the extremely under level champions.
Improved Recall =Will not allow you to waste 8 seconds in recalling
Swiftness =Get bonus speed at the start of the game so will not waste so much time in walking.

Starting Items

Starting items: Vampiric Scepter This is to enable you to survive longer so that you are able to farm more.Also higher recommended in PVP games.

Boots of Speed If playing begginer bot game to use to lure.

Doran's Shield If just a starter.Having this item will make master yi rather a defensive charater in the early games.

As you can see my items prices are high so try to get more kills.

Wriggle's Lantern=to get a bit of life steal before getting a better one.
Phantom Dancer=Reason i get 2 of these is that i want master yi to have more critical damage and more attack speed than the rest of the champion.
The Black Cleaver=Reduce the enemy armor making it easier to kill.
The Bloodthirster=Reason i get 2 of these is that i think Master Yi is a bit squishy and is easily killed and is often in team fights and ganks,so 2 Bloodthirster will be very effective as master yi's attack speed and very fast and he is able to drain the enemy HP and recovering HP to himself very quickly.
Berserker's Greaves=Increase movement speed and attack speed.

Skill Sequence

Alpha Strike: I increase it to allow master yi to have the kill enemies when they are far away and dying.It is also used for kill stealing to get gold(if you have no choice).

Meditate:Increased this at the end because if your attack is so high what for having healing.

Wuju StyleHaving this skill when the game just started is a very good time to get kill as attack is increased.

HighlanderIt can be used for running away as well as killing enemies.

Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Using Exhaust and Ignite spell is a very easy way to get kill so i have chosen them as items that are needed are very expensive.

Unique Skills

Alpha Strike Able to chase enemies when they use flash or exhaust on you.

Meditate Only some melee characters are able to heal.

Wuju Style A great boost in attack damage without any side effects unlike sion's skill enrage. Can also be activated to double the bonus damage increasing the chances of killing low health enemies with a few strikes and ignite.

HighlanderVery useful skill as it can be refreshed if you kill an enemy champion. It increases your attack speed and movement speed whic enhances your chance of chasing an enemy and killing them easily with Wuju Style.Can also be used as an escape move.

Basic attack and kill all the minions easily as there is high damage and that there is also high attack speed and black cleaver to help you take down minions with high hp such as super minions.Can also use Alpha Strike when there's big groups of minions.

Guide Top

Team Work

Not so good in teamwork as attack speed and damage are already very high and teammates will likely kill steal you instead of helping you. Chances of killing enemy champions are extremly high so you can get a lot of kills in a gang fight unless restricted by characters like Ryze which can freeze you in your tracks etc.

So just do your best and OWN. Master Yi is a very good character which cost only 450IP. Insane nuker so damage is not a problem unless you are not fed enough. Master Yi can also have a high chance to solo Baron. Its my first guide so please guide me along.Bye bye :P
