I have been playing Yi a bit on TT and doing quite well, really easy to get wins with 2 competent players premade with.

Anyway. I was wondering how do you build Yi for short games and what is most effective.
I have been having the most success with:

Infinity Edge
Bezerker Greaves
Vamp Sceptre
Black Cleaver
(Never been further then this point)

Am i building right? Is there a better build I can follow?

cheers.

LOL that is a short game build? Most people don't try to get infinity egdes or even BF swords because they are super expensive.

BF swords are the best items for dps characters at their price.

Easy to farm a couple and turn them into edges, cleavers for a little bit more.

Uh. farming 1850 gold, is not particularly easy, especially on TT where there is so much early focus on teamfights.

Thats 6 hero kills, which if you're getting 6 kills early enough that 1850g is "easy" to farm (with none or few other items) early then you aren't winning because your build is good but because the other team is terrible.

And if your first major item is Infinity edge, what are you starting with? Boots? farming 1850g with no item bonuses is going to be prohibitive to winning.

This is not a short game build. You can't reliably farm on TT; if you can, you're not against decent opponents, or you've just won a team fight.

I'm also a bit skeptical of your low survivability with this build. Yi is decent at running away, but still...

Though, I don't play Yi, so take this with a grain of salt. :P

But I like my salt...

I always seem to farm extremely well on TT as Yi for some reason, Not much harrassing from the other team (I am Mid - ELO so I play some pretty stupid people) as they are off trying to gank.
Normally get a BF sword at level 7 - 10, from there kills come easy thus Infinity Edge.
