Guide to Countering Master Yi as Mordekaiser

Tips for Playing as Mordekaiser against Master Yi

Offense is your defense. Keep fighting to build up larger Indestructible shields.

Use Realm of Death on a low health enemy to guarantee the kill and keep their stats for the rest of a teamfight.

Hitting multiple champions with the same ability can help quickly activate Darkness Rise.

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.
