[title][center]Where There is a Will, There is a Yi[/center][/title] [center][highlight][title]With the announcement of a Master Yi revamp. I will not be updating this guide. Have fun while it last![/title][/highlight][/center] Hello all! Thank you for taking the time to view my guide. I'm always looking for new tips and tricks for AP Yi. If you have any, I'd love to hear them! Also, my guide isn't geared towards high elo play(since I'm not high elo) but more towards someone wanting to try out AP Yi mid for the first time. This guide will go into detail on how to use his abilities, when to use them, and where to use them. AP Yi mid is my favorite champion. Yi is highly vulnerable when playing against champions with CC abilities. Meditate, his healing ability, relies on it not being interrupted. Unfortunately all forms of CC will cause the interruption to occur. From, fear, silence, stuns, and Knock-ups. But what is important is how and when you use any of your abilities while playing AP Yi. Along with Yi's many flaws, there is a high upside. AP Yi spits out some insane damage, especially in team fights. He has great mobility to back up teammates in the jungle as well as other lanes. His ganking potential is also very good.

[title]Pros[/title] [.]Insane Burst Damage [.]Excellent Farmer [.]Relatively Cheap Build [.]Easy To Play [.]High chance at a pentakill [.]Outstanding presence in team fights [.]High mobility to gank lanes [.]High Sustain [title]Cons[/title] [.]Vulnerable to CC abilities while trying to heal [.]Really only one source of damage, his Alpha Strike [.]He can't backup low health teammates in lane unless the enemy is low [.]He's not a team player [.]If Meditate is down, he is squishy and very vulnerable [title]My Stats[/title] [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP%20Yi%20Guide/rankedstats.png]

[center][title]When to[/title][/center] If the enemy team has a [highlight]squishy mid[/highlight], i.e. [img=champ/annie.png][img=champ/cassiopeia.png][img=champ/heimerdinger.png][img=champ/katarina.png][img=champ/ziggs.png] [highlight]AND[/highlight] a squishy support i.e. [img=champ/zyra.png][img=champ/sona.png][img=champ/janna.png][img=champ/soraka.png] then [highlight]DEFINITELY[/highlight] pick AP Yi [center][title]When not to[/title][/center] Generally, you don't want to pick AP Yi unless you already know who the other team has picked. If the other team has (maybe) 2, (definitely) 3, of these champs, stay away from Yi [img=champ/chogath.png][img=champ/drmundo.png][img=champ/galio.png][img=champ/garen.png][img=champ/malphite.png][img=champ/nautilus.png][img=champ/rammus.png][img=champ/singed.png][img=champ/sion.png][img=champ/skarner.png][img=champ/volibear.png] [highlight]It is important to treat AP Yi as an AP ASSASSIN![/highlight]

[title]Runes![/title] I have tried multiple variations for AP Yi's Runes. This is the only one that you should use. If you do not have the correct amount of Runes and/or Masteries for Ap Yi, I suggest not playing him until you do. This rune page is focused on early game AP power, rather than scaling AP power for late game(which is not recommended). The reason for this is so you gain an advantage against your mid lane opponent. You want to kill him first, don't you? It's a snowball after that. [highlight]Greater Mark of Magic Penetration[/highlight] - An important boost in Magic penetration for early game. [highlight]Greater Seal of Ability Power[/highlight] - Gives AP [highlight]Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power[/highlight] - Matches flat AP @ level 7 [highlight]Greater Quintessence of Ability Power[/highlight] - Gives AP At level 1, with a [imgsmall=items/dorans-ring.png], masteries, and your runes, you will have 56 AP. At level 1. your [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] will do 100 + (56) damage, and [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/w.png] will heal you for 140 (+218.612) health over 5 seconds. With everything together, this allows you more sustainability early game as well as allowing you to harass more for a chance to snowball early game. [title]My Current Rune Page[/title] [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP%20Yi%20Guide/heavyap.png]

[title]Skill Order[/title] Skill order is important. Max your alpha strike first as this is your main source of damage. Next max out your meditation as this is your main source of sustain. Lastly, max out your Wuju Style. Some guides I've seen suggest Wuju Style as the 4th skill point. I do not recommend this. It's pretty much useless, Id rather spend it on some more sustainability. Max First - [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] Max Second - [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/w.png] Max Third - [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/r.png] Max Last - [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/e.png] GET 1 POINT IN THIS ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED [imgsmall=items/lich-bane.png]

[title][img=skills/masteryi/p.png] Passive: Double Strike[/title] [highlight]Master Yi strikes twice every 7th attack.[/highlight] [title]Explanation: [/title] This is a nice passive to AD Master Yi...not so much for AP Yi. Although it does have it's benefits, it should be utilized two different ways. [.][highlight]Number 1[/highlight] - while last hitting minions in mid, pay attention to when you see your passive icon pop up [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/p.png]. Once the icon pops up, try and save it for when you want to secure a kill agaisnt your opponent. After using [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png][imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png] (if that doesn't kill them) you still have a double hit left in your arsenal. [.][highlight]Number 2[/highlight] - Use it to clear the jungle faster. I.e you push your mid lane up, retreat back to either wolves or wraiths. [title][img=skills/masteryi/q.png] Q: Alpha Strike[/title] [highlight]Master Yi leaps across the battlefield striking up to 4 enemies, dealing 100 / 150 / 200 / 250 / 300 (+100% of ability power) magic damage to each enemy with a 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60% chance to deal 400 bonus magic damage to minions. Cooldown 18/16/14/12/10 Cost 60/70/80/90/100 mana Range 600 [/highlight] [title]Explanation: [/title] This is your main (and only) source of damage. The downside to this is that you are pretty much useless if this is on cooldown. So using this ability wisely is the key to your success (further explanation in the early-late-team fighting chapters). The best part about this ability is that it scales 1:1 AP; meaning, that if you have 138 AP and [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] has 3 skill points, [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] will do 200 + ([highlight]138[/highlight]) for a total of 338 Damage. It's a nice amount of damage and will take chunks out of the opposing mid player, especially if they are squishy. [title][img=skills/masteryi/w.png] W: Meditate[/title] [highlight]Master Yi channels, restoring 140 / 280 / 420 / 560 / 700 (+165% of ability power) health over 5 seconds. While channeling, Master Yi gains 100 / 150 / 200 / 250 / 300 armor and magic resistance. Cooldown 35 seconds Cost 70/85/100/115/130 mana Range 20[/highlight] [title]Explanation:[/title] Meditate is AP Yi's most annoying skill for anyone on the opposing team. You use this ability to restore health rapidly, while having a nice increase in armor and magic resistance. This is also an ability that needs to be used wisely. Pay attention to whether the enemy has a CC ability to cancel your [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/w.png]. (further explanation in the early-late-team fighting chapters) [title][img=skills/masteryi/e.png] E: Wuju Style[/title] [highlight]Passive: Increases physical damage by 15/20/25/30/35. Active: Master Yi can activate this ability to double its effectiveness for 10 seconds, but this removes the passive bonus until Wuju Style becomes available again. Cooldown 30 seconds Cost 40 mana Range 20 [/highlight] [title]Explanation:[/title] Wuju Style is pretty straight forward. It increases your damage per added skill point. Activating it will double the damage for the duration. Max this last. I don't put any skill points in it til level 13. Its uses are really only for clearing the jungle faster late game, using it during a team fight, and using to to finish off an enemy champion. [title][img=skills/masteryi/r.png] R: Highlander[/title] [highlight]Increases Master Yi's movement speed by 40% and Attack Speed by 40/60/80%, and he becomes immune to all slowing effects for 6/9/12seconds. Additionally, killing a champion refreshes all of Master Yi's cooldowns. (Assists reduce half of the base cooldown amount.) Cooldown 75 seconds Cost 120 mana Range 1[/highlight] [title]Explanation:[/title] Highlander is the most important ability that AP Yi's has. The reason for it being so important is that by killing a champion it refreshes all of Yi's cooldowns (assists reduce half). Max this out whenever possible. It's important to realize that if you do not have this ability during a team fight, you are almost useless. Whenever you know you are going to kill an enemy with one last [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png], make sure to use [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/r.png] just before initiating. Doing this allows all cooldowns to be refreshed just in case another enemy champion is lerking nearby. Also if you recently used [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/w.png], you will have it again to heal up if you are low. [/title]

I always start with: [img=items/dorans-ring.png][img=items/mana-potion2.png] Other options (but, not as effective in my opinion) are: [img=items/crystalline-flask.png][img=items/health-potion5.png][img=items/sight-ward.png] or [img=items/boots-of-speed.png][img=items/health-potion3.png] There are [highlight]TWO[/highlight] possible routes I suggest you take: [title]Route 1[/title] [img=items/sheen.png] [title]Route 2[/title] [img=items/sorcerers-shoes.png] [title]Route 1[/title] [highlight]Sheen Route[/highlight] [highlight]First Trip Back:[/highlight] [img=items/sheen.png] The sheen is a good pick because it enables you to rush a Lich Bane. By going with the sheen route this will enable AP Yi to do some extra needed damage against enemy champions or minions/monsters. It won't give you much. but at this level your Alpha Strike will do most of the damage needed and the Sheen is an added bonus while you wait for enough money to buy a Lich Bane. [highlight]2nd Back[/highlight] If going well: [img=items/lich-bane.png] Not quite there: [img=items/blasting-wand.png] If not going so well: [img=items/boots-of-speed.png] Once you have a [imgsmall=items/lich-bane.png] That baby will proc! It's nice to have early. Next, you will need some mobility paired with magic penetration go with [imgsmall=items/sorcerers-shoes.png] Next you want to rush a [imgsmall=items/deathfire-grasp.png] This item is very important. Not only does it give you cooldown reduction, it is an extra source of damage, and since AP Yi relies on only one source, his Q, this is very important! Next you want to get [imgsmall=items/rabadons-deathcap.png] For obvious reason, this is going to give you a huge boost in AP. At this point you will be ripping kids apart! Next, I usually aim for a [imgsmall=items/zhonyas-hourglass.png] This will protect you if you fail to get a kill while using you ult on a team. If it fails, immediately activate this. At this point, you do a lot of damage and can generally go with something defensive, like a [imgsmall=items/banshees-veil.png] or [imgsmall=items/athenes-unholy-grail.png] Final items can be [imgsmall=items/void-staff.png] [imgsmall=items/hextech-gunblade.png] [highlight]Sorcerer's Shoes Route[/highlight] [imgsmall=items/sorcerers-shoes.png] Route - Go with [imgsmall=items/rabadons-deathcap.png] next (this gives you a nice up on AP and lets you sustain more from the AP while using [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/w.png] Typically the way to go if you have a counter in your lane.) After that, I will usually buy either a [imgsmall=items/sheen.png] or [imgsmall=items/blasting-wand.png] (any will do, just go for what you can afford) Then turn it into a [imgsmall=items/lich-bane.png] asap. At this point your build should be [img=items/dorans-ring.png][img=items/sorcerers-shoes.png][img=items/rabadons-deathcap.png][img=items/lich-bane.png] Next is all about the situation. Always include a [imgsmall=items/deathfire-grasp.png] Before or after this point. If they are focusing you a lot. (typically what I buy next) [imgsmall=items/zhonyas-hourglass.png] If they are staking MR [imgsmall=items/void-staff.png]

[center][title]Early Game AP Yi[/title][/center] It is essential for AP Yi to have a strong early game, whether it is getting kills or farming. [.][highlight]Harassment[/highlight] There are two main ways to harass with AP YI. [.][highlight]Option 1[/highlight] - Last hit minions until there are 3 left, then use [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] ON THE MINION CLOSEST TO YOU. Make sure the enemy champion is near the group of minions. Example images below. [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiearlygameh1.png] [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiearlygameh1-2.png] [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiearlygameh1-2-3.png] [.][highlight]Option 2[/highlight] - Use The Fog of War to your advantage. AP Yi's [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] will only target minions and champions that he can see. Wait for one or two minions to appear out of the FoW. Anticipate that the enemy champion is following closely behind them. Start to move forward and use [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] as soon as the enemy appears on your screen. Example image below. [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiearlygameh2.png] [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiearlygameh2-1.png] [highlight]*Note 1[/highlight] - Make sure when you push your lane that you revert back to farming your jungle, either wraiths or wolves. If you see an opportunity in other lanes to gank, take it. Also, always follow your mid! [highlight]*Note 2[/highlight] - After you help your jungler get first blue. You need the rest! It gives great cooldown reduction on your abilities and allows you to spam that [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] while losing little mana.

[center][title]Mid To Late Game AP Yi[/title][/center] At this point in the game, you should be fed. [.]Towers are destroyed. [.]You should be roaming lanes. [.]Focus on farming. [.]Pay attention to other lanes on your minimap. [.]Particularly notice enemy champions with low health. [center][title]Team Fights AP Yi[/title][/center] In team fights, this is where you truly should act as an [highlight]AP ASSASSIN[/highlight]. As bad as it sounds, to utilize AP Yi most effectively; KS your team. Sit in a bush or somewhere away from the opposing team, wait for an enemy champion to be at a low enough percentage of health towards where you know [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] will kill them. Once you feel good about it, activate [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/r.png] and rush towards that enemy. [imgsmall=summoners/flash.png] in for an increase in suprise and use [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] by targeting the champion DIRECTLY. This guarantees that your alpha strike hits that champion. Hopefully you get the kill, if not, use [imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png] and whack him a few times to secure the kill. Once the enemy is dead. continue to use [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] on the remaining champions, prooritizing the champions with the least amount of health. Pay attention to the amount of time you have left on [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/r.png]. If your ult is done, use it again before you kill another champion so everything is refreshed once more. Example Images Below. Here, I target Yorick. [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiTEAMFIGHTgameQUAD.png] I leave Yorick with low HP, but I don't kill him, So I used ignite on him to secure the kill. While waiting for the kill to be secured, I used Meditate to guard myself and wait. [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiTEAMFIGHTgameQUAD1.png] Once the kill was secured, I used [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/r.png] again and targeted Nunu [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiTEAMFIGHTgameQUAD2.png] By Hitting Nunu, I also did a lot of damage to Jana, leaving her with one more [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiTEAMFIGHTgameQUAD3.png] [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiTEAMFIGHTgameQUAD4.png] Finally, I used one more [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] to damage Ahri. I finished her off with the increased damage from [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/e.png] [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiTEAMFIGHTgameQUAD5.png]

[center][title]Flash and [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png][/title][/center] AP Yi can use flash to his advantage by not only flashing out of a sticky situation by flashing in to a kill. If you are successful in bursting down your opponent and don't have the opportunity to to secure the kill (because [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] is on cooldown or they some how retreated back to their tower to recall back to their base). If you have [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/r.png], use it, once you are close to their tower and see them recalling back to base, use [imgsmall=summoners/flash.png] to get in close. Then use [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] to kill them. If you don't kill them, use [imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png] to finish them off. [highlight]*Note[/highlight] it also help to have [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/p.png] for your next attack for a double whack of damage. Example images below. [highlight]Sorry for the words on the top, this was taken from one of my live streams and we were doing a giveaway.[/highlight] [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiearlygameDIVE.png] [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiearlygameDIVE2.png] Another technique is in the unfortunate event that your [imgsmall=summoners/flash.png] is down. In this case, pay attention to the minions, you can use [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] on them and it will chain to the enemy, killing them. Example image below. [imgext=http://files.enjin.com/195088/AP Yi Guide/apyiMIDgameFLASHDOWNKILL.png]

[title][center]Sorted from lol to Medium (Counters at the Bottom)[/center][/title] [center][img=champ/heimerdinger.png][/center] [center][title]lol[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] Follow the normal guide. Push him up. You should be able to farm more than him. Use his turrets to your advantage. Sometimes a Heimerdinger player will place turrets behind him to be able to retreat. As he is falling back use [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] on the one closet to you and chain attack to him. Once you get a [imgsmall=items/rabadons-deathcap.png], you should be able to use [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] on his turrets and kill them in one use. [.][highlight]Watch Out! - The only thing to watch out for with Heimerdinger is his [imgsmall=skills/heimerdinger/e.png], If it hits you directly, it will interrupt your [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/w.png]. [/highlight] [center][img=champ/cassiopeia.png][/center] [center][title]lol[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] To EZ. AP Yi can dodge all over her abilities with [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png], so use this to your advantage. Anticipate it when she moves closer to you. Just use the tactics in this guide to harass her. Just like any other player, push the lane then farm the jungle. [.][highlight]Watch Out! - Cassiopeia's [imgsmall=skills/cassiopeia/r.png] can be pretty devastating, so as AP Yi, you should be aware of it at all times. Avoid using [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/w.png] when low HP; if you have no other choice, make sure you are facing away from her as it wont cancel (not 100% on this, someone please confirm) [/highlight] [center][img=champ/katarina.png][/center] [center][title]lol[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight]Any mid squishy with no CC ability is going to be a cake walk for AP Yi. Just use the tactics explained in the previous chapters to attack and push [imgsmall=champ/katarina.png] back. I feel like putting as much pressure on her as possible, so she doesn't have the opportunity to gank other lanes; especially bottom lane. Always keep and eye on her and call MIAS. [.][highlight]Watch Out! - There really isn't anything to watch out for. The only thing would be to use [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/w.png] when she [imgsmall=skills/katarina/r.png] and you're golden. I would typically focus her more in teamfights over their AD carry because of her AOE ult.[/highlight] [center][img=champ/ahri.png][/center] [center][title]Easy[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight]Ahri is a fairly simple champion to lane against (as you can see in my tutorial screenshots). Her abilities are skillshot based and are easy to anticipate and dodge. Just like any other easy opponent, focus on harassing her as much as possible. Push her lane, then fall back to your jungle; and gank top or bottom when possible. I typically wait for her to use her [imgsmall=skills/ahri/e.png] and miss me, then go in for a [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/q.png] directly on her. She wont be able to burst you and then you can just reheal the damage with [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/w.png] [.][highlight]Watch Out! - There really isn't anything to watch out for other than keeping your distance while using [imgsmall=skills/masteryi/w.png]. She can cancel it with her [imgsmall=skills/ahri/e.png] [/highlight] [center][img=champ/annie.png][/center] [center][title]Easy[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/brand.png][/center] [center][title]Easy[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/karthus.png][/center] [center][title]Easy[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/nidalee.png][/center] [center][title]Easy[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/ziggs.png][/center] [center][title]Easy[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/zyra.png][/center] [center][title]Easy[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/evelynn.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/lux.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/gragas.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/kassadin.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/kennen.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/leblanc.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/orianna.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/talon.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/viktor.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/fizz.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/malzahar.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/morgana.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][img=champ/mordekaiser.png][/center] [center][title]Medium[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - [/highlight] [.][highlight]Watch Out![/highlight] [center][title]Counters[/title][/center] [center][img=champ/xerath.png][/center] [center][title]Hard[/title][/center] [.][highlight]Strategy - I have faced some pretty skilled Xeraths before who have given me trouble, but I've found some nice strategies to use against him.

Again, thank you for taking the time to view my guide! I'm always open to constructive criticism, but not open to flaming or trolling. Be fair, this guide took me awhile to create. This guide is a work-in-progress and I will be providing updates as soon as I have time to apply them. More AP Yi! Feel free to add me to your friends list. -Chaddcl0ps
