Quick tips to play Master Yi

Focus on farming the jungle until level 6 where you unlock your

Highlander

. Only gank lanes that will result in gaining kills.

Wait for the enemy to use their CC or poke ability before using your

AlphaStrike

. Use your

AlphaStrike

to dodge the damage or crowd control.

When no team fights are occuring, look to split push and apply pressure to side lanes/towers.
