2. If he heals and he's low, use grevious wounds or just back off- after his heal, his Q is probably still down.
5 In the middle of a teamfight?
6. Support? Besides damage, and, if you're AD Yi, backdooring skills, what would Yi bring to a team?
7 He's not invincible, everyone needs to be unique, only refreshes if he kills. He can't kill with a heal, sir.
Yi is nothing if not harass his alpha strike lets him turret dive without much trouble. Yis endless speed lets him zip around the map to jungle and gank wherever hes needed, his speed is his gap closer. His ult refreshes everything and he has a passive heal (that if tweaked to be strictly an out of combat heal) would be a perfect addition to his kit (allowing him to pause between team fights and jungling to heal without having to base)
Also, how do you propose one should "back off" in a team fight, and why the hell should anyone have to back off from a jungler in the first place, junglers should not have to be treated like tanks.
despite your continued responses you still have yet to supply any reason making it acceptable for a jungle character to be more resilient than any tank. You also still have yet to name a single other champ that posesses a similar ability...
Yi is supposed to be a jungler. Not a tank that can sit there taking endless punishment while his teammates weaken all around him so he can finish them once meditate stops.
If your a yi who is in a teamfight without your ult, your not a very good yi... Plain and simple team fights come after laning ends. Laning ends well after level 6, yi is the perfect initiator for team fights because of his alpha strike and speed. Because of those 2 things there shouldnt be a teamfight that yi gets into without being prepared for it.
Any champ (yes even supports built for support roles as opposed to damage roles)can kill if the enemies health is low enough, all yi has to do is stand there till meditate breaks and whats left of the other team is already pretty bruised from taking out the other members of his team to pick off easy kills, its not like hes incapable of chasing survivors down...
