Guide to Countering Master Yi as Elise

Tips for Playing as Elise against Master Yi

Elise's Spider Form and Spider Form abilities do not cost mana and can be prioritized when you are trying to conserve mana.

When in Spider Form, Spiderlings will attack the target that Elise uses Venomous Bite on.

Spider Form is most effective at finishing off enemies with low health; Human Form's Neurotoxin does more damage to healthy foes.

Advice to Win Against Master Yi

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

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.
