Say you were playing sonething like Master Yi. Which would you rather get first: Youmuu's Ghostblade or a lifesteal item such as BOTRK or Ravenous Hydra, and why?

I had the same problem with Rengar. I originally rushed Hydra on Rengar, but I've switched to Ghostblade and it's an amazing choice. As with Yi it gives you amazing mobility, with a great early attack-speed boost combined with early great armor pen and CDR. As Yi all you relly need in the way of lifesteal is a vamp until you've finished your 2nd-3rd crit item. Your autos won't heal you as much but your damage will be insane, as Yi's is. Plus, you can meditate in most situations and be fine.

I think you should build BOTRK 1st,it will give you some necessery attack speed and lifestill,which Youmuus ghostblade wont,so you will be able to stay and farm without recalling for some time,with meditate and some potions you will be able to outfarm enemy and stay in lane longer which will give you nice gold advantage i recomend building Youmuus ghostblade second if youre going for that kind of build,but in my oppinion you shouldnt miss statick shivv on him aswell,Youmuus ghost blade will give you nice mobility and attack speed,but what when its on cooldown?I dont think its really worth to build it 1st,you may,its not bad choise for sure but BOTRK will give you early advantage which will result in good late game.I wrote this asuming you are going top lane,but it applies on jungler aswell,ofc after your jungle item.

Your lifesteal item is in general the go-to. Getting an early youmuu's is for dominating your opponents, so only get that if you know you have that kill opportunity.
