Hey guys, I just started out playing LoL, beginner type games, nothing fancy, and I'm playing as Master Yi cuz he's the only character I ever pull off actual kills with hah. I have read through a TON of Yi builds, but there seems to be a lot of disagreements about what items to get with him. If anyone could post a straightforward item list for Yi that I would be able to use to hold my own in typical 5v5 battles, I would really really appreciate it.

Right now, I typically get Berserker Greaves, a Vamp Scepter, and then just pretty much build towards Infinity Edge. Also, I don't seem to make a ton of gold, this is probly just cuz I don't get many kills, but any tips on getting more gold would be great too. If you have any questions about what I'm looking for, I'll reply quickly! THANKS!!

My build would more or less follow PFP's build, with minor modifications:

Doran's Ring OR Boots+Potions
The Brutalizer
Mercury's Treads
Zeal OR Recurve Bow
B. F. Sword
Zeke's Harbinger
Infinity Edge
Phantom Dancer
Youmuu's Ghostblade
Banshee's Veil

Your general core should be Stark's Fervor+Infinity Edge.
Optional offensive items include Youmuu's Ghostblade, Phantom Dancer, The Black Cleaver, or The Bloodthirster.
You should either get Banshee's Veil or Guardian Angel later on for survivability.

For your gold problems, try to last hit minions. Don't attack them much until you know you can kill them in one hit, to get the gold. From what I've seen, you should also farm a lot as Yi. His Alpha Strike makes it pretty easy to destroy minion waves, just last hit in the beginning, farm lots in mid and end game, and you should get your gold!

You can also quite easily shred through the jungle just to acquire some gold, and those lovely buffs :)
