Master Yi's Passive
After landing 3 basic attacks, Master Yi's next attack within 4 seconds strikes twice, dealing 50% AD bonus physical damage which applies on-hit effects and can critically strike.

If Double Strike’s first hit kills a unit, the second strike now searches for a new target within 300 range (prioritizes killing blows).

Master Yi becomes untargetable and marks to up to 4 nearby enemies before dealing 25 / 60 / 95 / 130 / 165 (+0.9 per attack damage) physical damage to them. This ability deals 75 / 100 / 125 / 150 / 175 bonus damage to monsters. If there are no unmarked enemies in range, Master Yi may strike the same enemies again, dealing 25% of the ability's damage instantly.

This skill can critically strike, dealing 60% of Master Yi's attack damage as bonus physical damage.

Basic attacks lower Alpha Strike's cooldown by 1 second.

While channeling, Master Yi gains 60 / 62.5 / 65 / 67.5 / 70% damage reduction. This amount is halved against turrets.

Channeling Meditate pauses the durations of Wuju Style and Highlander and grants 1 stack of Double Strike per second.
