Guide to Countering Master Yi as Brand

Tips for Playing as Brand against Master Yi

You can deter enemies from standing near their minions by setting them ablaze, due to Conflagration.

Pyroclasm bounces randomly between enemies, so try to cast it on a small group of enemies if you want to hit the same target multiple times.

You can use Brand's abilities in a variety of combinations to maximize his damage in different situations.

Advice to Win Against Master Yi

Although Master Yi cannot be slowed while using Highlander, other disables can stop him in his tracks.

If Master Yi tries to farm with Alpha Strike, hit him a few times so he has to use mana with Meditate to heal.

Meditate is an effective method of healing damage over time, but Master Yi is susceptible to coordinated team ganks early in the game.
