I've been playing with master yi for a while now, and i have always played him with heavy AD, because i always thought that he was meant to be played AD....
Is he better to be played as an AP? If so what should my build be?
Any tips on how i could play him would be great.

A good ap yi can destroy an ad yi late game, you need to play a little safer early game though

Personally I usually play AP for the lane then transition to AD lategame

Just stack a few doran's rings then into a blood thirster and slowly sell off the rings when you need the slots for more AD/AS items.

2 completley different play stayles, and both of them work, so you just have to pick one you like more.

Ad Yi is easier to shut down, but much more destructive. Ap Yi has much better survival, but his main damage is alpha strike, so you will be limited by how many casts you can get off.

AP yi can get a pentakill merely by jumping in and getting the first kill.

An AP yi with DFG, Lich Bane, and upwards of 600AP can instantly kill any squishy character.

Add in a Nashor's Tooth and AP Yi can still get a Quadrakill merely by getting an assist early.

To be fair, that's true of a lot of AP casters. 600 AP is a ton, lots of characters have enough burst to instantly kill a squishy with that much and a DFG.
