Summoner Spells Back to Top

14.png

Ignite 

This is the usual summoner spell I take. The ignite significantly increases the kill probability during the early leve;s
12.png

Teleport

I almost never take this summoner. However I recommend this summoner spell when you are against someone who is stronger than you lane 114.png or is harder to kill 85.png.

4.png

Flash

This summoner is a must have. Flash gives Master Yi the mobility he needs to escape or to catch an enemy during the early game.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Ferocity

Fury 

This mastery gives you extra attack speed which is beneficial for Yi, allowing you to get more  masteryipassive.pngs off.

Double Edged Sword 

This mastery allows you to deal more damage but take slightly more damage. This mastery is great for getting kills during the early levels.

Vampirism

The life steal and spell vamp allows you to stay in lane longer which is nice.

Bounty Hunter

This mastery doesn't really help you during the early levels however, as the game progresses it becomes much more useful. Yi will usually clean up a team fight eventually killing everyone in the opposing team.

Battering Blows

Increases your damage in all stages of the game. Out of all the alternatives, this the best option for Yi.

Fervor of Battle

This keystone mastery synergises extremely well with Yi. Yi's masteryipassive.png allows you to get 4 stacks quite easily. This keystone adds 112 damage to your basic attacks at level 18 which is INSANE. This keystone also increases your kill potential quite heavily in lane.


Cunning 

Savagery

This mastery allows you to CS easier during the laning phase.

Assassin

This mastery increases your damage meaning it increases the chance of you getting a kill. If you are not confident in getting a kill in lane, you can swap this mastery out for "Secret Stash".

Merciless

This mastery is great due to the fact that it increases your damage to low health enemies which increases your kill potential.

Dangerous Game

This mastery is a MUST, it will help you survive in close situations. These close situations will usually happen when you are attempting to kill an enemy during the first few levels.

masteryipassive.png Double Strike


This passive is why Mastery Yi is amazing at trading with most enemies at the early levels. This passive stacks your keystone mastery faster. This passive also synergies well with wujustyle.png because you are able to apply the true passive twice.

alphastrike.png Alpha Strike

This ability has a lot of utility built into it. Since this ability makes you untargetable, you can dodge abilities and attacks from enemies, be used to gap close etc.
This ability can separate the Good Yi's from the Bad Yi's. With effective timing you are able to follow enemies that use their mobility spells or abilities to get away. Keep in mind if you get hit by DoT spells prior to alpha strike, you still get damaged whilst being untargetable. 

meditate.png Meditate

This ability gives you decent sustain in lane. Like Alpha Strike, this ability also has some utility. You are able to reduce damage if you use this ability effectively. This ability also resets your auto attack which can potentially increase your damage output. Keep in mind that this ability can be cancelled by abilities with Hard CC and Silence however that damage from the CC/Silence ability will be reduced.

wujustyle.png Wuju Style

This ability allows you to easily damage tanks during the laning phase. The passive makes up for the lack of ad from your runes. The true damage can be used twice with masteryipassive.png. Keep in mind that you do less damage when this ability goes on cool down so try to play more passively during this time.



Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Usual start
    More DAMAGE, More SQUISHY

Core Items

    Main Items
    Final Build

Situational Items

    Struggling against AP

Starting Items

Doran's Blade 1055.png2003.png 

This is the usual start I go with. Provides you with decent sustain and damage. The extra health also provides you with extra survivability. 

Long Sword1036.png2003.pngx3

Long sword start provides you with extra damage but you are more squishy. I recommend only going this start if you are CONFIDENT in getting a kill early on. This start is not recommended due to the fact that if you don't get a kill early on, you are putting yourself at a disadvantage because of the lack of sustain and survivability


Build Order

3142.png > 3006.png > 3153.png > 3046.png >3031.png/Alt > 3508.png/Alt

This is the order I build, 3031.png and 3508.png are my preferred items but you are able to swap these items out for another. Even though Master Yi's synergy with attack speed is good, 3142.png should be bought first. Ghostblade is slightly cheaper than Botrk but you do the same if not 
more damage. The components of 3153.png are also more expensive compared to 3142.png's.

VS

Aatrox

Medium

This is a skill matchup

His sustain fromaatroxW.png is really annoying, try not to trade with him early on or he is just going to heal back up. Once you get your ultimate and3134.png you are able to dual with.

Use your alphastrike.png to dodge his aatroxQ.png and aatroxE.png and you will win the trade.

Remember you are able to auto attack reset with your meditate.png to increase your damage output

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

This is a skill matchup 


Cho'Gath's passive chogathpassive.png allows him to stay in lane longer. Try not to engage in trades early on because he will just sustain through it.

Refrain from using alphastrike.png until you see him cast rupture.png. A good Cho'Gath will use feralscream.png to silence you followed by a rupture.png . If you are good with your alphastrike.png timing you are able to dodge his feralscream.png.
His feast.png deals true damage, which means your damage reduction frommeditate.png is useless. Because Cho'Gath has multiple ways to stop channels. Your meditate.png will most likely be cancelled most of the time.

Once you get highlander.png you are easily able to dual him (if he is not ahead), Don't use your alphastrike.png until you see him cast rupture.png. If he silences you, use your movement speed fromhighlander.png to easily dodge it

VS

Darius

Easy

You should not have any problems with this matchup. If he manages to get couple of kills. He is easily dealt with after post-6. Your DPS is significantly better than Darius's IF he does not have his dariuspassive.png.


I recommend waiting till level 6 to all in. Your DPS is significantly increased when your highlander.png is activated.

Since his rework. His dariuscleave.png has a delaying meaning it can easily be dodged by your alphastrike.png.

His dariusnoxiantacticsonh.png has little to no effect due to the slow immunity from your highlander.png.

If he wants to trade and attempts to pull you in with dariusaxegrabcone.png, activate wujustyle.png and trade with him. He will most likely lose the trade due to your DPS being better than his

If you have decent reaction time, you are able to dodge his dariusexecute.png with your alphastrike.png

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy
Note: You can try a LVL 1 cheese against him IF he starts infectedcleavermissilecast.png, you are unable to 1v1 him if he starts masochism.png due to it doing more damage the lower his health is.

Your DPS is better than his. Whenever you get the chance, attempt to trade with him.

When you reach Lvl 6. Attempt to dual him with highlander.png, you will most likely end up winning the trade
His slow from infectedcleavermissilecast.png is mitigated by your highlander.png. If he activates sadism.png counter it with 14.png.



VS

Fiora

Hard

I despise this matchup


Note: Fiora is very hard to cheese lvl 1. Her DPS COULD match or surpass yours depending on the vitals she hits. 

fiorapassive.png and fioradance.png does true damage making the damage reduction from meditate.png useless. Pray that the passive doesn't mark the side closest to Fiora with a vital.

I advise not to go aggressive with alphastrike.png because she will easily block it with fiorariposte.pngfiorariposte.png also reduces your attack speed making you automatically lose the trade.

Fiora's fioraflurry.png makes her second attack critical strike. You can use your meditate.png to block some damage.

I advise you play passively until you get multiple items. And REFRAIN from using your alphastrike.png until she immaturely uses her fiorariposte.png.


VS

Fizz

Medium

This matchup is easy pre-6 but gets harder post-6


Note: If you are not confident in facing Fizz, i recommend you rush hex drinker. The shield ensures that you will not die and the magic resist is nice against Fizz.

Fizz's passive, fizzpassive.png blocks some AA damage but it's not noticeable.

Try not getting poked by Fizz's auto attacks because it does decent damage due to the DoT  and active from fizzseastonepassive.png. If he does try to poke, retaliate by attacking back.

fizzjump.png's damage can easily be reduced by meditate.png. However, keep in mind that your alphastrike.png can also be easily blocked by his fizzjump.png

When Fizz has fizzmarinerdoom.png, he does surprising burst damage. His fizzmarinerdoom.png could be reduced by meditate.png but I do not recommend it because it will be cancelled and he will then  damage you with his others ability. fizzmarinerdoom.png can be dodged by your alphastrike.png IF you time it perfectly.

VS

Galio

Easy

An extremely easy matchup


Galio's galiopassive.png is completely useless against you. The Galio will most likely not build MR due to the fact that Yi does not do any form of magic damage. If the Galio does build MR, punish him.

galioresolutesmite.png and galiorighteousgust.png can easily be reduced by meditate.png. However, these abilities due surprising amount of damage but they cost a lot of mana. If you have a hard time dodging these abilities, buy another Doran's blade and plenty of potions.

Your DPS and true damage reduces the armor and healing from galiobulwark.png

Due to your true damage, you can still do plenty of damage when Galio taunts you withgalioidolofdurand.png


VS

Gangplank

Easy

This should be an easy matchup due to reworked GP having a weaker laning phase.


Gangplank's poke from parley.png can do some damage if you let him. Play passively. Since parley.png is counted as an AA, minions will focus on GP which, pushes the lane towards your turret.

removescurvy.png provides GP with decent sustain however the QSS part of this ability is completely useless against Yi since he has no CC ability. 

Try not to get hit by his raisemorale.png since it does a lot of damage. The slowing effect of this ability is completely mitigated when Yi activates highlander.png.

cannonbarrage.png is more of a nuisance than a hazard, try not to fight him within his cannonbarrage.png if you do not have highlander.png.

GP can easily be towered dived due to his lack of CC in his abilities.


VS

Garen

Medium

Reworked Garen's early game has been weakened. This makes this lane easier to deal with.


Most Garens tend to be agressive in lane. They initiate with garenslash3.png followed by an garenbladestorm.png + garencommand.png. Run away when he uses garenslash3.png when it runs out, you are able to go in and win the trade. 

True damage from your wujustyle.png completely ignores the damage reduction from garencommand.png.
You should be able to trade with Garen easily early in the game due to his garenbladestorm.png doing less damage and the amount of swings is less.

Time your meditate.png to mitigate damage fromgarenjustice.png. However, this only works IF you are not the 'Villain'

VS

Gnar

Medium

Rather annoying matchup but manageable 



I recommend you play passively. If you try to jump on Gnar with alphastrike.png, you'll end up doing some damage but you will get kited quite easily because of his gnarW.png. You have low kill potential pre-6 because of his gnarE.png
Play cautious when Gnar's  gnarpassive.png rage bar is almost full. He turns from a sustained damage Mini Gnar to Bursty Mega Gnar.

His gnarQ.png is annoying to deal with. If you keep getting hit, I recommend you buy an extra Doran's blade and more pots.

Gnar's gnarE.png makes his laning phase safe. This ability is why you can't kill him easily pre-6. Wait till you get your highlander.png to all in. Refrain from using your alphastrike.png until he is mid gnarE.png

gnarR.png is a potent ability if used correctly. If you collide with a wall you will get stunned and will usually end up in you dying. If your alphastrike.png timing is good enough you are able to dodge this ability and Mega Gnar's gnarW.png




VS

Graves

Medium
Recommend you play passively during the early levels. If you attempt to use your alphastrike.png to try and all in, he will most likely gravesmove.png away.

If he gets aggressive and try to poke you, stay behind minions to avoid the poke. This will also push the wave towards your turret.

After you put a level into your highlander.png, your kill potential on him drastically increases. He can no longer outrun you with his gravesmove.png due to the combination of mobility from your alphastrike.png and highlander.png.

If you have decent reaction, you are able to either dodge the damage from his graveschargeshot.png with alphastrike.png or mitigate most of the dmg with meditate.png.

VS

Illaoi

Easy
Similar to Darius, your DPS is superior than hers in MOST cases.

Do not try to fight Illaoi if she has pulled your spirit out and there a multiple tentacles. She WILL outrade you. Attempt to kill any tentacles nearby to decrease her damage output.

Illaoi is probably one of the easiest champions to cheese during lvl 1-3. Her horrific attack speeds allows to you easily win trades. You are also able to easily dodge her illaoiQ.png with your alphastrike.png.

Due to her illaoiR.png having a delay, you are also easily able to dodge with alphastrike.png.



VS

Irelia

Hard
Irelia is a pain to deal with.

You have slight advantage during the early levels 1-3. However, after that, Irelia's damage from her ireliahitenstyle.png becomes potent and should not be taken lightly. I recommend taking 12.png and to play passively until mid game comes.

Be alert when nearby allied minions are low health, she will most likely use them as gap closers with ireliagatotsu.png , she will then follow up with ireliaequilibriumstrike.png then ireliahitenstyle.png empowered AA and another ireliagatotsu.png.

Due to herireliahitenstyle.png dealing true damage. The effectiveness of your meditate.png decreases.

Pros and Cons Back to Top

Pros

- Has one of the highest DPS in the game
- Extremely easy to snowball with
- Easy to play



Cons

- No form of CC (With the exception of items)
- Weak to Heavy Crowd Control
- Hard to master

Which 'Blade' should I rush Back to Top

TL DR

- Ghostblade has a better build path and overall better damage than the other two

Recommended 3142.png

Ghostblade should be your first item in the majority of every game. There is multiple reasons to why you should rush this.
  • Build path is significantly better compared to the other two - Ghostblade's recipe consists of Serrated Dirk 3134.pngand Caulfield's Warhammer 3133.png. This two items both cost at a reasonable price of 1,100. These items also build out of two long swords each. Why is this better? The main component of Bork3153.png is Bilgewater cutlass which is costs 500 more than these two items. Even though cutlass has extra sustain and an active, the damage output from Serrated Dirk surpasses it. The money for cutlass is just not worth it. At the other side of the spectrum, Rageblade's 3124.png components Pickaxe and Blasting wand cost around 200 or 300 less than Serrated Dirk. However, even though these components cost cheaper, they don't have even smaller components you can buy that builds into it if you lack the money. This makes your early game extremely weak.
Ghostblade's damage is better than Borks damage ever since Bork got hit by the nerf. Even though Rageblade rivals the damage of Ghostblade, It takes time for Rageblade's damage to ramp up.

Ok3153.png

  • If you plan to rush this item, be warned, the components are extremely expensive.
