Gameplay

Master Yi is a very unique carry as he doesn't exponentially benefit from fully unlocking Classes or Origins, but is most effective in a team composition which provides part of both his class and origin buffs, together with upgrading him and his allies to 3 Stars, by slow-rolling (rolling gold over 50) at level 7 when possible, as he benefits more from the raw HP and stats than the bonuses that 6 Blademasters or 6 Rebels may offer him. As a melee unit, Master Yi's core items are set in stone to enable him to function regardless of enemy lock-down, Quicksilver item Quicksilver enables him to properly deal damage without getting kitted or chain CC'd into death, while Rabadon's Deathcap item Rabadon's Deathcap grants an extreme stat boost in all of Chosen One's scaling that is also amplified by the Rebel bonus. His last items are situational between Hextech Gunblade item Hextech Gunblade and Guinsoo's Rageblade item Guinsoo's Rageblade, depending if sustain or raw DPS is favorable. Bramble Vest TFT item Bramble Vest ignores critical hits and gives extra armor, this is situationally good against High AD carries.

Gameplay

Yi is considerate one of the hardest carries in the game, As an On-hit oriented Blademaster, Guinsoo's Rageblade item Guinsoo's Rageblade is considerate his Core item, after that is recommended to build him tanky with items such a Dragon's Claw item Dragon's Claw and Warmog's Armor item Warmog's Armor to keep him alive for as long as possible. Rapid Firecannon item Rapid Firecannon is also a good option due to his fragile melee nature.

Alternative builds include turning him into a Berserker TFT icon Berserker, granting him the ability to cleave through teams with ease.

Out of all Mystic, Nami DeepSeaSquare Nami complements him the most, as she can empower his already strong On-hit auto attacks and set-up initionations for him with her Tidal Wave.
