Taking 21/9 is essential, because you need to reset fast. You should consider taking 5% cdr in your masterires if you run the 5% glyps too. If you dont have cdr runes you can take attackspeed instead of cooldown in your mastery page.

Well these spellorder is normal on yi.


The most important spell of yi is the Q. If you master the Q you will be able to win all the games at low elo. The Q is a dodge and a gap closer. The most Yi players use the Q as engage. I say dont use it as an engage you use it to dodge abilites. You will just engage with your R. You can dodge all kinds of ult with master yis Q thats rly important because CC kills yi immediatly. You may use the Q as engage if you are rly fed and can 2-3 shot the adc so you can use it again.

VS

Aatrox

Medium

Kill him before he gets to tanky dont fight him with randuins

VS

Ahri

Easy

Dodge her spells she has only skillshots + you can follow her in her ult with your ult ;)

VS

Akali

Easy

Pink wards and confidence makes you win this matchup.

VS

Anivia

Medium

Dont underestime her damage in lategame. You can 1 v 1 her, but dont dive her.

VS

Annie

Hard

Annie is simply op... Dodging her ult is probably possible if you sneeze randomly and press Q by accident ...

VS

Ashe

Easy

How cares about slows when u play yi :). The only threat is her ult and its dodgeable with Q.

VS

Azir

Easy

He has no CC to stop you. Get over his wall with Q and kill him.

VS

Brand

Easy

Dodge his Q and all in.

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

Q or look away when she uses her ult. Dont underestimate her if she poisened you she can spam E like a berserk.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

Dodge his Q and W. Care of his true dmg.

VS

Darius

Hard

You dont like this guy. There is no way to beat him in lane, but there are 1000 ways to beat him in teamfights.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

As long as he is not too tanky you can just chase him and kill him.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Medium

Get QSS his fear is true cancer. His W will still do dmg to you in your Q.

VS

Fiora

Hard

Fiora is like the OP version of yi without reset

VS

Gnar

Medium

He is ranged and pretty strong try to all in him at level 6 dont get harassed too hard abuse his cooldown and dont fight him in the melee form

VS

Heimerdinger

Easy

your q will destroy his turrets. Dodge his E- Dont fight him too long under his ult turret.

VS

Irelia

Hard

Irelia is pretty much a champ that is op. You cant dodge her crucial spells with your Q. If she is lower than you she can stunn you for some seconds and simply kill you. She is weaker in the lower levels. Be carefull at level 9 she just destroys everything beside a renekton. Your goal in this matchup is to have the bigger impact in A teamfights or B splitpushing. Dont forget that armor wont help you, because she got true dmg HP wins.

VS

Jax

Hard

Jax will destroy you his E counters you pretty hard. If you are good you are able to dodge his stun with q but he will still outtrade you because of his passive and ult passive.

VS

Karthus

Easy

Karthus is a free kill for you.

VS

Kassadin

Medium

Your autohits hurt more than his autohits. He cant always use his E abuse it. Try to press Q while he is using R (predict it)

VS

Katarina

Easy

She has no CC you can 1 v 1 her at early game, but i think she has more dmg than you at late game.

VS

Lux

Easy

Hue next free kill!! Dodge her Q with your Q and she can do nothing against you for some seconds.

VS

Maokai

Hard

He is tanky and can knpck up you. If you use your Q to dodge his Q he will simply use his W after you apear and probably win the trade

VS

Nasus

Hard

Nasus just has to go tanky vs you u will have a lot trouble in lane

VS

Pantheon

Hard

He outpokes you in lane this matchup sucks just roaming is the answer to a panth but care of his ult

VS

Rammus

Hard

Well... I think its clear that Rammus counters every AD champ.

VS

Renekton

Hard

This croco is hard to deal with simply a tank that destroys yi. Renekton is sick in the laning phase!!!

VS

Riven

Hard

Riven destroys you in the laning. You can try to lower her ult dmg with W. Be carefull. If she has her speels at cooldown you can try to 1 v 1 her.

VS

Syndra

Hard

Her burst is so Hardcore she has CC everything that counters you to beat her dodge her stunn ball with q use ur w when she ults you.

VS

Tryndamere

Medium

Dont try to 1 on 1 him u may outtrade him but if you go 1 on 1 he will outcrit you. Try to roam a lot.

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

No HP free kill. You can dodge his gold card with your Q.

VS

Wukong

Medium

Skill matchup care for his clone tricks and be carefull if he has his ult.

VS

Yasuo

Medium

You should be able to outdamage him in a 1 v 1 if you W his Q and Q his whirlwind.

VS

Zed

Medium

Try to buy quicksilver against his ult. All in him if he is alone and wasted his W Q.

VS

Ziggs

Medium

His poke is annoying and his dmg is also really huge. Try to dodge his ult with your Q.

How to reach gold elo Back to Top

Dont always build the same items its always situational.

Always try to get Nashs and Drakes with your team.
Ward the enemies buffs.
Dont overextend.
Dont push your lane too far if you are behind.
Ward your bushes to avoid ganks.
Dont fokus the tanks if you play yi dont play 1 vs 5 and try to get as much resets as possible.
Farm like a boss
Try to roamarrow-10x10.png this can change so much.
Don't look at others mistake only your mistakes matter.
Don't get mad if you lose, even pros lose.
Sometimes it is easier to win if you pick highwinrate champs. This guide is not made to force you to play yi. It is for example a lot easier to win with wukong, because he does not need so much skill to be impactfull.

How to play YI in teamfights Back to Top

Try to stay away from CC try to dodge  some abilites with ur Q (leona ult etc.) Try to focus the squishiest quy to get resets. Dont forget to use your active items they can change a whole teamfight. Always try to go on the adc and apc or even the support or jungler if they are sqishy the resets make you strong.

Funny trick that helps a lot Back to Top

Your W Reduces the dmg u get. If you play vs riven for example you can trade her and press at the right timing W to reduces the dmg of her ult and then kill her. Thats pretty good vs highburst champs. This small time when you use ur W can change the whole trade and grant u a kill instead of a death, but it needs a lot of practice :)

About me Back to Top

Hi I am Felix and I am from Austria. I am playing league for 4 years or even more now. I am currently at plat 2 and have a lot of experience in all lanes. (That is because I was tilting a lot and tried to learn all champs...). I was stuck in gold V for 1 years and all I can tell you to get out of this "elohell" is look forarrow-10x10.png your mistakes. Watch some onetrick ponies playing the champ you main and learn from them. Don't blame your team, you are the only one that matters in this game (Solo Q). Don't spam 1000 champs you won't get better,
