Master Yi Build
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Health Quintessences- Allow you to stay in the jungle as long as possible
Desolation Marks- Give you that extra armor penetration to kill creeps and enemy champions faster(just a solid rune for any dps champion)
Dodge Seals- Give you better survivibility
Focus Glyphs- Your abilities come off cooldown faster(works great with golem buff)
Mercury Treads- Help with Stuns and ap champions
Wrigglers Lantern- Helps With Jungling and give you some survivibility early to mid game
Bloodthirster- Lots of Damage and Life steal
Infinities Edge- Damage And Awsome Crits
Banshees Veil- Survivibility against ap champions( I cannot stress this enough ap will ruin your day)
The Last two Item Are situational and will be discussed later in the guide.
Introduction Early Game:
Jungling Yi bad idea... I think not. So you want to start off at blue buff and it should be realatively easy if you have the runes. Alpha strike in and pray to god that you get the 400 damage, if you don't you'll still be fine it will just take a little bit longer. If you don't then I would recommend starting off at wolf camp then go to wraiths. Then you should recall and buy an elixir of fortitude and some more health pots and then go blue buff.
Ok if you can solo blue buff great, after that you want to go to wolf camp, then wraiths,then golems, and then red buff. While doing this be sure to heal up with your meditate ability so you can jungle as long as you can. You should have your madreds razors and your boots now and should start ganking where ever possible because sense you have ghost you wont need your ult to catch up.
Other Summoner Spells-The only other spell I would highly recommend and I trade off with regularly would be cleanse because it just dominates ap champions(such as ryze) because alot of them have stuns and blinds. The only trade off is its harder to gank without ghost so you might stay in the jungle until you reach level 6.
By now you should have your lantern, mercury treads, bloodthirster, and zeal. You should still always be controlling blue buff and grabbing dragon as many times as you can because you have your lantern and smite so you can take it out really fast. This is when team fights start breaking out and what you have to do is wait for the fight to happen then go in because your too squishy(your the designated janitor). Also, you should still be farming as much as possible and backdooring so you can get your gold and take out towers.
Alright you should have the build mostly done if you've been farming and cleaning up properly. Once you have the Banshees Veil, you're an aps worst nightmare and you can just own most ap in a couple hits.
After you have your banshees veil your last two items really become situational so keep that in mind and here is what I like to go.
Heavy Ap- Guardians Angel/Hexdrinker
Heavy Dps- Thornmail/Atma's Impaler
Mixed- Guardians Angel/Agis of legion
Heavy Tank- Last Whisper/Bloodrazer
Squishys- Youmuu's Ghostblade/Black Cleaver
I Hope This Build Inspires You To Jungle As Yi
