Guide to Countering Janna as Master Yi

Tips for Playing as Master Yi against Janna

Wuju Style is very strong early for last hitting minions.

If you're in a lane against ranged players, leveling up Meditate can allow you to stay in the lane longer and gain levels faster than they will.

Try using Alpha Strike on a minion in front of an enemy champion so you are placed at a safe distance at the end of the spell.

Advice to Win Against Janna

Save an interrupt ability for when Janna uses her ultimate.

Listen for the charge up sound on Howling Gale in case Janna is trying to hit you with it from off screen or from brush.

Janna's at her strongest when buffing another ally. If you can harass her ally, it will weaken her ability to fight you.
