Master Yi is an assassin champion. Adored by some and hated by others, Master Yi becomes very powerful after buying a few items. His abilities grant the champion not only attack damage, but also true damage, which together with his attack speed, makes this champion do a lot of damage not only to magazines, but also to enemy tanks. Typically, this champion is used in the wild.



Champion Description

“Master Yi trained his body and honed his mind so that thought and action became almost one. Although he prefers to resort to violence as a last resort, the lightness and speed of his sword ensure an always swift resolution. As one of the last practitioners of the Ionian art of Wuju, Yi dedicated his life to preserving the legacy of his people, evaluating potential disciples with the Seven Lens of Insight to identify which of them was the most worthy.”

Master Yi's abilities

(Passive) Double Attack: Every few consecutive basic attacks, Master Yi attacks twice.

(Q) Alpha Strike: Master Yi teleports across the battlefield so fast he cannot be seen, dealing Physical Damage to multiple units along the way while becoming untargetable. Alpha Attack can deal additional Critical Strike and Physical Damage against monsters. Basic attacks reduce the cooldown of Alpha Attack.

(W) Meditate: Master Yi rejuvenates his body with mind power, restoring Health and taking reduced damage for a short time. Additionally, he gains stacks of Double Attack and pauses the remaining duration of Wuju Style and Highlander for every second of channeling.



(E) Wuju Style: Grants bonus true damage on basic attacks.

(R) Highlander: Master Yi moves with extreme agility, temporarily increasing his Attack and Movement Speed, and becoming immune to all slowing effects. Champion kills or assists extend Highlander's duration while the ability is active. Passively reduces the cooldown of other skills with each kill or assist.
