How to play Master Yi


Master Yi is an AD fighter jungler. He is not the best champion in the early game, but once you hit level 5 and get Highlander, he becomes a lot stronger at running down the enemies and dealing serious damage! The best jungle path for Master Yi is to do a full clear early on so you can get level 5 as soon as possible. Master Yi is not the best at ganking as he has no crowd control abilities but if your team lands some crowd control you can follow up and do a lot of damage.

Master Yi Build Breakdown


Blade of the Ruined King

Guardian Angel
Mercury's Treads - Stasis

Master Yi is known for building a lot of attack damage and attack speed that can help with his abilities and damage. Blade Of The Ruined King is a great item for Master Yi. It gives him attack damage and attack speed and also has a great passive. The passive is when you hit a champion with 3 basic attacks or abilities, it steals movement speed from that champion. This is ideal when chasing down enemies. After Blade of the Ruined King, you want to keep building attack speed items so you can stack Lethal Tempo fasting and deal more damage.


Onto the runes, we have:

Lethal Tempo

Master Yi loves attack speed. Not only does it help Master Yi do a lot of damage but basic attacks also reduce the cooldown of Alpha Strike so you can keep teleporting around doing tons of damage.

Triumph

With Master Yi, you will be in a lot of team fights jumping onto the backline trying to kill the enemy carries so dealing extra damage will always help and Master Yi restores health every time he gets a takedown.

Hunter - Titan

With Master Yi, you will be in a lot of fights running down and attacking the enemies and getting plenty of takedowns. This allows Master Yi to get a bit more health with each takedown to make him that little bit extra tanky.

Hunter - Genius

With Master Yi, you want your abilities to be up and available as much as possible to deal as much damage as you can. Hunter Genius will give you ability haste when you get unique takedowns on enemies.

Flash
Smite

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get out of a situation or if you are trying to go in for that killing blow. Smite is a must for when you are playing jungle. Helps you out a lot when clearing the jungle and securing the epic monsters.

Jungle Path


With Master Yi, he doesn't have the best 1 vs 1 potential vs other junglers early on. This means that most of the time you want to go for a full clear in the jungle which means you work your way through your jungle and kill every camp. When you finish killing every camp in your jungle you will get Level 5 and have access to Highlander. When doing a full clear it's best to start Blue Sentinel as it's a lot easier to get around the jungle. Also, Yi can use a lot of mana in the jungle so it's best to get that regen early on.


This is what the jungle path would look like:

  1. Krugs
  2. Red Brambleback
  3. Raptors
  4. Wolves
  5. Blue Sentinal
  6. Gromp

Below is a beginner's guide for jungle in Wild Rift. It goes in-depth about every jungle camp. Epic monsters and more!:

Late Game


Once you reach the late game with Master Yi and you have your core items, you can start to become useful. As a jungler, your main objective is to keep track of when Dragon's, Rift Herald, and Baron spawn. Taking these epic monsters will give you and your team an advantage in the game. When in a 5 vs 5 team fight your main goal is to get on top of the enemy backline! Try to focus on them and run them down with your Highlander. A tip as well is that your Alpha Strike can dodge crowd control and damage from the enemy team so make sure you use this at the right time.

Conclusion


Overall Master Yi is a really simple, easy, and great champion to play for all beginners. If you like to run down the enemy and auto attack and get some quick and easy kills then he is the go-to champion for you.
