Master Yi Guide - By Reginald

Reginald's Master Yi.

Forest Yi

Summoner Spells: Rally, Exhaust

Nine Red Armor penetration runes, Quintessence of Desolation = 24 armor pen.
Nine Yellow Evasion runes = 6.7 % dodge
2 Furor Quentessence and 9 Furor blue Runes = 17% Crit Damage.

Offensive Tree

3 Deadliness
1 Exhaust
4 Alarcrity
3 Sunder
2 Offensive Mastery
3 Brute Force
3 Lethality
1 Improved Rally
1 Havoc

Defense Tree:

3 Hardness
1 resistrance
4 Evasion
1 Nimbleness
Defensive: 9

Items to start:

Elixir of Agility
5X health potions.
First Skill at level 1 : Alpha Strike.

Initiate the lizard with Alpha strike.
Chug a potion.
At the beginning of the game, have 2-3 people help you get lizard buff. Make sure to tell your teammates to backoff, when the lizard is about to die-- this will give you more exp. ( Do not use ur agility potion yet)

After leveling up to level 2, get a talent point into wuju style.

Go to the Life Leeching Neutral spawn.( chug agility potion ) Then Alpha strike the creeps. After leveling up to level 2, get a talent point into wuju style.
You want to chug another health potion while doing these creeps to keep your health points at maximum. Next you go to the neutral spawn next to your golem, Alpha Strike and kill those (with a potion).
By now, you would two potions left, lizardbuff and an agility potion(used).
Now you would meditate up to full life. and go kill the golem.
When killing the Golem use your improved rally.
After killing the golem meditate up to full health points.

Crucial Point
The benefits of that agility potion is that it helps you kill heroes easily. However if you're not getting any hero kills, you will fall behind in gold. It is important you remember the heroes summoner spells and target the ones without flash.
From this point on, it is very important that you gank with the buffs you have : Lizardbuff, Golem buff, Agility potion.
Look for a lane, that has enemy heroes pushed up near your tower. Position yourself that when you engage in battle, you must be comming from directly behind them. Assuming that you dont fail in your gank-- you should have first blood.
Recall back after, and buy lifesteal(450) Boots( 350) agility potion ( 300) 1100. You should easily have this amount of gold with firstblood.
Now that you have: Boots, agility potion(first one still in use), lizardbuff and golem buff, you want to gank another lane.
Master yi is a very fast paced hero, and ganking is very important with Jungle Yi.
Continue this process, constantly look for lizard buff and golem buffs and constantly gank lanes. Hero kills are much more gold than creeps.
1 hero kill = 10 -13 creeps.
If this strategy is done correcty- outleveling their solo is very easily done.
Basic builds on Master Yi:
Beserkers greaves and infinity's edge is a must , with these two items alone-- master yi can crit 500-600 easily.
Against tanks you would want a last whisper as well.
Against tank teams:
Berserkers greaves
Infinity's edge
Starks fervor

make sure always to include the (450 gold lifesteal) in every build at the beginning.

Against nukers:

Damage is very important however staying alive is a must.
Accumulate items in this order:
berserkers greaves
Lifesteal (450)
Infinity's Edge
Banshee's veil
then make starks fervor.
Depends on the situation, Items for Master yi varies. However berserker greaves and infinity's Edge is a must. (life steal as well).

Master Yi is all about positioning and dealing damage. Something very important about Master yi is you must pick off their most squishy hero's before dealing with their tanks.
When engaging in a team fight, you dont want to be the one to initiate but not the last either. You should wait until afair of spells are casted before engaging.
Similar to ganks, wait until the enemy hero has used their nuke/ flash/ or stun, then engage and kill them. Sometimes players forget to constantly activate Highlander( it is very important to keep this up.)
Speak with your teammates on vent, and tell them to let you get the last hit on heroes to refresh your highlander. Playing Master yi takes alot of communication with your teammates.
The secret to winning games with Master yi is early game domination- it leads to late game domination.

Anyways this is how i think Master yi should be played and I will be writing up another guide of how to solo Master yi in the near future.


  1. this guide sucks you assume too much

  2. Use those runes and masteries but... pop imp rally and agi pot on the rat and initiate with alpha, you won't lose any life.

    Kill both other neut camps then red pot and cross to the other side of your river, alpha neuts then red pot and alpha golemn and pot again.

    cross to their side and kill both neuts.... IF you've been lucky you can kill the rat, but usually not, depends on alpha % and crits. Watch all the lanes when you're crossing them for easy ganks...

    After you buy you can kill the lizard with imp rally, always keep your green agi pot up ALL GAME, never get meditation.

  3. Guys he's one of the topped ranked players in the game, obviously he knows what he's talking about.

    @the last guy, if you do not get meditate as yi, you're just bad, really, really bad.

  4. ha ha mater yi got nerfed so he is not as good as he used to be.

  5. This is the shittiest build i've ever seen
    I could post a better build in this fucking chatbox but i think he'd get pissed

    The build i use starts you a bit squishier then you'd like but once it shines through you can end nearly every match with 40/6/22 <-- or something like that depending on your skill with the him
    Seriously though this build sucks do NOT listen to him

    the runes and masteries are halfway decent but seriously guys do yourself a favor do NOT use the item build <--- email this if you want a build that i use to get where i am

  6. Did you all read the top?

    i bet you're all based on ganking.

    the top says "FOREST YI"

    read before you start shooting out half-baked comments.


  8. What a bunch of fucking trolls.

  9. Reginald is one of the top players on the us server. Everyone who says this is a bad build only makes a fool out of themself

  10. forest yi got lower gold income than a yi spending his alphas on a lane.. and rushing berserk graves and IE by ganking and forest got low chance of success.. and telling your team to have the last hit on champs to refresh your ulti is such a selfish move.. this is LOL dude.. not DOTA.. you cant kill your targets alone in a teamfight.. AND IN HIGH LEVEL MATCHES, WHENEVER THERE IS A MASTER YI ON THE FIELD, IT IS EXPECTED THAT HE IS THE "FIRST TARGET FOR THE OPPOSING TEAM." AND PLEASE, POST MORE FLEXIBLE GUIDE.. and maybe he is one of the top players on US server, but he failed to write a viable guide.. and players on that server like to surrender.. they suck.. they dont like to play in a tight situation. and it mostly happen after the first ace.. some game are EPIC.. MOST SUCK. thats it..

  28. I think everything typed was actually very
    logical. However, think about this, suppose
    you were to write a awesome headline? I ain't suggesting your content isn't good,
    but what if you added something to possibly get folk's attention? I mean "Master Yi Guide - By Reginald" is a little vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo's home
    page and watch how they write post headlines to grab people to click.

    You might add a video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.

  29. Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
