MASTER YI POST REWORK GUIDE 12.5

1V9 ABUSING ON HIT Q EFFECT



Intro

Hello! My name is Hamilton and I'm a

Master Yi
main, i've been playing the game since season 2 and i achieve diamond 1 on promos last season only playing yi.

In this guide i'm going to show what i've been building on yi, and what i do to stomp games, I hope you guys enjoy it :D

Runes

By far the best runepage is

Hail of Blades
, Yi is a scaling champion that need items to powerspike, with this rune you can snowball early and get fed as quickly as possible. Because you go
Blade of The Ruined King
you dont need
Treasure Hunter
anymore, so i always pick
Relentless Hunter
.

The other viable option is

Lethal Tempo
, which was pretty hyped when announced for yi, but ended up disappointing a little bit, when you pick this rune your early game becomes SO WEAK that you can barely do anything. I would recommend this runes only playing against bruisers/tanks with no annoying mobility/CC, such as
Ornn
,
Irelia
and
Rammus
. Besides that, I would not reccomend this rune in any case at all.

  • Hail of Blades
  • Lethal Tempo


Summoner Spells

Since you are jungling, always take

Smite
and one of the below.

    Skill Path

    On Duskblade build its better to max Q, on on-hit you put 3 points on Q early for the faster clear, then after 6 you max E.

    • Duskblade
    • On-hit

    Item Builds

    Both builds can be done using

    Hail of Blades
    but if you are using
    Lethal Tempo
    just use the On-Hit build.

    Obviously those aren't the only good items in both builds, those are just the ones i build more frequently, you can still build

    Quicksilver Sash
    and
    Guardian Angel
    on the Duskblade build if you need it, or get
    Mortal Reminder
    in either builds if you need it as well, the sky is the limit!

    Matchups and Synergies

    There are a LOT of different matchups for yi, so for simplifing things, i made a tier list with all categories of matchups and another one for synergies.

    Matchups

    Synergies

    • S tier
    • A tier
    • B tier

    Jungle Pathing

    Always start in your red buff, it makes the rest of your clear way faster and the effect procs on your

    Alpha Strike
    , i would recommend watching and replicating the pathing, kiting methods and skill order of the video below (train it on the practice tool first):

    Playstyle

    In most of the cases you'll have

    Hail of Blades
    and this run is MASSIVE for getting early advantage, if you are going
    Duskblade of Draktharr
    build (which is the one i've been using way more) you wanna rush
    Serrated Dirk
    before starting your
    Blade of The Ruined King
    , so always look to reset with at least 1.1k gold for you to buy it, and then you can start doing MASSIVE early damages on squishes, if you land all of your combo you are certenly going to 100-0 them.

    The best combo order (showed on the video below) is:

    E + AA + AA + AA + W (for auto reset) + AA + Q + AA

    It seems a lot but once you get the timing of everything, you can execute it very naturaly

    

    Obviously, you don't need

    Serrated Dirk
    early to still do big amounts of damage, any free kill or fight you can get that you can win its already a huge deal for you.

    DONT PLAY HIGH RISK & HIGH REWARD, its very important that you don't fall very much behind in the early, even tho Yi scales a lot, collecting any advantage can accelerate your game a lot, and once you get your powerspike items, you are going to destroy everyone

    MID/LATE GAME

    Even after getting your items and being fed, you gotta remember: YOU ARE NOT THE FRONT LINE. Always analyse both teams and know your condition to engage, for example, if they have a fed

    Xayah
    and you need to focus her first, it's important to wait for her to spend her R which is her only way to dodge you. Obviously there are a bunch of different cases, and only experience playing the game will teach you all of that.

    You can also farm objectives like drake and baron very quickly due to

    Wuju Style
    , so if you are fed enough you can even solo baron at 20 minutes, keep calm during the game and you can clear any team comp if you play correctly.

    SUPER SECRET TANK BUILD

    Oh, so you reached the end of the guide? Let me show you a very interesting build i've been playing, this build is good in pretty much every team comp, but it shines more in the ones you need to tank a lot of damage and can freely hit after that, and when your team is full damage as well.

    • Tank yi


    Run

    Unflinching
    if they have many CC, but
    Overgrowth
    is very good to increase
    Titanic Hydra
    damage.

    • Tank yi

    Your early game might be a little weaker, but once you get your

    Titanic Hydra
    and
    Sunfire Aegis
    you'll be activating the effect of both a LOT, especially with your Q.

    You also wanna go 3Q + Max E with this build.

    Thank you!

    tsym for reading, probably not entirely, but at least a segment of my guide, i hope it helps you and you can climp with Yi faster than him :D Abuse it before they nerf him.
