His Q seems to be a bit mana-intensive to be casting it every few seconds. Is that CD-reducing mechanic geared toward a jungle Yi with blue buff?

Thanks a ton for the feedback and the well constructed post. It's really appreciated! Make sure you submit this stuff on the PBE forums. I'll also see if I can take some of it back to the team and check things out.

I used to clown Assassin Master Yi, and call it the worst skin in the game...

It's now my favorite yi skin...the only way it could get cooler was if the Alpha strike particles were black instead of gold.

Just glancing at tthe number, the numbers on meditate are really low.
What incentive does yi really have to take it early?
Is 25 hp worth however much mana it costs?

My opinion, would be plain and clear, its changed Yi, quite drastically. Probably for the better though.

One of the MAJOR MAJOR mistakes people used to make on AD Yi, is build AD early.
You just, max Wuju style for bonus 70 ad, and build a static shiv and a PD, skip the boots, before u even think about building any real ad (you do want to get a vamp sceptar).

Now, hes quite different.

Wuju style now encourages you to build tonnes and tonnes of AD so you get the most out of it. While you get 80% attack speed from max rank Highlander. That's insane.

Obviously, the emphasis has heavily swapped around.

You STILL want to build a lot of crit on him. BUT, it is now more important to build AD than AS (even though the majority of crit comes from attack speed items)

On a whole, I think it is a healthy improvement for the game. It sure isnt fun when a static, PD yi hits like a truck cause he has 200 total ad just from wuju style and some runes.
Then again, it does ruin the feel of yi.

Is it really possible to go 2 pd's static shiv anymore, and thus skip boots? And still leave enough room to enjoy the steroid that his ult is? Is it even worth doing this considering he now really needs ad?

Ive yet to test this, because PBE is being mean and giving me 20+ min que times, but I from what I have played of the new Yi, im a little disappointed.
