Tips

Playing As Master Yi Master Yi
  • If you're laning against ranged players, ranking up Meditate.png Meditate can allow you to stay in 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 an enemy minion in front of an enemy champion so you are placed at a safe distance at the end of the ability.
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 Meditate.png Meditate to heal.
  • Although Master Yi cannot be slowed while using Highlander.png Highlander, other disables can stop him in his tracks.
