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.
This build is intended for new players learning LoL. This build shows how to properly use Master Yi and how to properly build him. *Constant Updates*
The runes that master yi can use may be transfered over to many other carry characters as they all do share a similar gameplay style.
The reason I get Greater Mark of Desolation is because you already have enough crit chance, crit damage and such in this build. Whats good about this mark is it gives you that extra armor pen which will set many characters into -armor (when the enemys armor is lower then your armor pen it causes them to take more damage from your attacks)
There are two options i like to get for Seals when playing Master Yi. These both give health to Master Yi but work in diffrent ways. The Greater Seal of Armor gives straight up health. This option is good if you are playing against a team that has a strong early game play. Although they are only good until you hit level 6. The second option is Greater Seal of vitality. This Seal gives health per level. it is designed so you start of with a lower health (compared to Greater Seal of Armor ) but as you level up grants more health then Greater Seal of Armor
There are two options i like to get for Seals when playing Master Yi. These both give Magic resist to Master Yi but work in diffrent ways. The Greater Glyph of Magic Resist gives straight up magic resist. This option is good if you are playing against a team that has strong early game mages. Although these only help until level 10. The second option is Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist. This Glyph gives magic resist per level. it is designed so you start of with a lower magic resist (compared to Greater Glyph of Magic Resist ) but as you level up grants more magic resist then Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
For skills with Master Yi they are fairly straight forward getting skills in these priorities:
1: Highlander (R/Ult)
2: Alpha Strike (Q)
3: Wuju Style (E)
4: Meditate (W)
Highlander Being master Yi's Ult is the first priority when choosing abilitys. Being an ultimate it can only be leveled at 6,11,16. Highlander Gives Master Yi extra attack speed and movement speed as well as making him immune to all slow effects. It also refreshes all of his cooldowns if a enemy champion is killed by Master Yi.
Alpha Strike Is Master Yi second most needed ability
