Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Welcome to my Yasuo guide!
Yasuo is a very hard champion to learn, so don't get frustrated if you don't do well with him right away. It took me a good 20 games to finally start getting more kills than deaths, so you have to be dedicated to learning him.
Here is my build video I made on my new YouTube channel, so check it out if you wanna learn more!
If you are going ADC with Yasuo, simply swap ignite with heal (or in some cases teleport) because you will be in bot lane and not in mid.
Pros / Cons
+ Has no mana or energy
+ Easy farming
+ Long range/short cooldown ultimate ability
+ Very Fun to play with
+ Lots of damage
- Really hard to master
- Need to time Q right for ults
- Very complex champion
- 3 skillshots
Farming is VERY important for Yasuo in the early game in order to get him going on his items. So do not neglect farming.
Remember that Yasuo can use his Q while dashing to deal AOE damage with his Q in a circular area around him. This is a good way to farm little crowds of minions more easily, and once you have Shiv, the discharge + critical strike can take down many minions in one hit while still charging his Q for a tornado.
His Qis good for poking early game and that is why I get it first. This ability is a very large source of Yasuo's constant damage since the cooldown is very short, and it creates the tornado that you need to ult. We max this ability FIRST
His Wis hard to master. Use it to block projectiles like projectile stuns and things like Sivir's Q, Lux's stun, or Ahri's charm. We max this ability last.
His Eis a very important ability, since it deals a lot of damage and can allow you to escape pursuers. However, if you spam this ability you may not have minions behind you to E on to in order to get away, so please don't be that guy and just spam the **** out of this ability. We max this ability SECOND.
His Ult (R)is a very powerful ability, especially if you hit multiple targets with it. You gotta knock your enemy airborne with your Q, so try to time it right. You can also hit people suspended in air with your Q for maximum damage. We max this ability THIRD

Yasuo's mastery tree in this build is also explained in the comments above!
Still confused? Well, I hope you can find your way up the page to see the comments. :)
So... What now?
The answer to that question is very simple.
Go to solo queue and practice with him until you are in love!
After 1 week of owning him he became my favorite and highest level champion. Have fun with him and appreciate his unprecedented power!
Thanks for reading my guide! :)
