Tips

Playing As Master Yi Master Yi
  • If you're in a lane against ranged players, leveling up Meditate.png Meditate can allow you to stay in the lane longer and gain levels faster than they will.
  • Wuju Style.png Wuju Style is very strong early for last hitting minions.
  • Try using Alpha Strike.png Alpha Strike on a minion in front of an enemy champion so you are placed at a safe distance at the end of the spell.
Playing Against Master Yi Master Yi
  • Meditate.png Meditate is an effective method of healing damage over time, but Master Yi is susceptible to coordinated team ganks early in the game.
  • If Master Yi tries to farm with Alpha Strike.png Alpha Strike, hit him a few times so he has to use mana with Meditate.png Meditate to heal.
  • Although Master Yi cannot be slowed while using Highlander.png Highlander, other disables can stop him in his tracks.

Tricks

Ability Usage
  • Double Strike.png Double Strike makes Master Yi Master Yi strike twice in quick succession after 4 consecutive autoattacks. This synergises extremely well with the cooldown reduction per autoattack on Alpha Strike.png Alpha Strike, the on-hit true damage of Wuju Style.png Wuju Style and the attack speed bonus from Highlander.png Highlander.
    • The second strike of Double Strike.png Double Strike counts as another autoattack toward the next Double Strike so every Double strike after the first will trigger after 3 attacks instead of 4.
  • Alpha Strike.png Alpha Strike allows Master Yi Master Yi to become untargetable for a brief period. Its most valuable usage comes in its ability to dodge otherwise deadly disables or effects, not as a gap-closer.
  • Meditate.png Meditate's damage reduction is extremely powerful in delaying fights long enough for support to arrive. Be careful that you do not issue orders after it is initiated unless you see a disable coming, as that will cancel the channel and it has a lengthy cooldown.
    • Meditate.png Meditate also resets Master Yi Master Yi's autoattack so it can be used offensively to squeeze in one more attack to kill enemies and turrets faster.
  • Wuju Style.png Wuju Style grants Master Yi Master Yi bonus AD passively and true damage on-hit for a few seconds on activation.
    • This ability greatly aids in helping Yi take down tanks and powerful monsters like Baron Nashor Baron Nashor and the Dragon Dragon.
  • Highlander.png Highlander gives Master Yi Master Yi a massive increase in Attack Speed and Movement Speed along with complete immunity to slows for a few seconds, which extends upon takedowns. This chain effect makes Master Yi Master Yi effective at wiping out entire enemy teams if he is not put under control.
    • Due to the relatively short initial duration, the ability should be used carefully to make sure you have enough time to reach and kill your target(s).
