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 (Ultimate) he becomes a lot strong at running down the enemies and dealing a lot of 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.

Gluttonous Greaves - Quicksilver

Master Yi is known for building a lot of attack damage and attack speed that can help with his abilities and damage later on in the game. Blade Of The Ruined King is the perfect first item for Master Yi. Not only does it give much-needed attack damage and attack speed that works really well with his kit but also the passive is great for chasing down enemies. Phantom Dancer also gives Master Yi a lot of attack speed but also gives him a shield when he gets below 35% health, this can help him survive when running down enemies trying to kill them.


Onto the runes, we have:

Conqueror

With Master Yi's very high attack speed and abilities that can hit the enemies you will find that getting stacks for Conqueror can happy every quickly which allows him to get more damage on the enemies.

Brutal

This helps out Master Yi in the early game get that extra bit of damage when clearing the jungle and when fighting vs enemies.

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.

Mastermind

The go-to rune for junglers in Wild Rift! Allows Master Yi to deal 10% bonus true damage to epic monsters and adaptive damage to turrets! On top of that, he can earn an extra 120 gold when you takedown objectives!

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. Help's 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 Highlands (Ultimate). 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. Blue Sentinel 
  2. Gromp
  3. Wolves
  4. Raptors
  5. Red Brambleback
  6. Krugs

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 (Ultimate). A tip as well is that your Alpha Strike (1st Ability) 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.
