Well i was master yi and my team consisted of olaf and karthus vs heimer, graves, rumble. iw as rocking heads but my team was garbage. then other team held the game out long enough to buy a thornmail for each of them and now im getting 1000+ thornmail damage per each champion.

How can i counter thornmail???? I had a last whisper and a 3/4 stacked bloodthirster and still no help. The "wait for the ap carry" answer is no go b/c like i said my ap carry was garbage. Anyone have suggestions on what to do in that situation?

Build some magic resist -- Thornmail deals magic damage.

If you don't want to sacrifice damage output, just build another Bloodthirster for more lifesteal. Thornmail deals 30% back, so with above 30% lifesteal, you're healing the Thornmail damage you're taking. Of course you'd still be getting focus, so if it's their focus killing you more, that won't really help you.

life stela, magic resist. Trust me thornmail is NOT a big concern, especially for yi. Yi's one of the few champs that feels thornmail the least due to his double strike

How to counter Thornmail unless you are just get bloodthirster (I actually usually just run lantern then get like cleaver/Witts end and just do more damage.

If the whole other team uses thorn mails u need bloodthirster

Don't play Master Yi. Simple as that. I also like how you call your teammates garbage but you play Master Yi. LOL.

Seriously? I was facing an enemy Fiora who had only a Vamp Scepter, and it totally negated the damage from my Thornmail >_<

Lets say they got 30ish mage res and 15 lifesteal thornmail wont hit much back on them (not even noticeable)

If they got a lantern and a bit of mage res it pretty much literally negates it fully

If you are facing an AP caster Witts end is great against thornmails.

Remember mage res alone is guna do **** against thornmail 100 mage res = 50% less damage from thornmail its cheaper to just build a vampire scepter but if you are facing mages you might want those items anyways.
