Runes


I've been using my basic ADC Runes for Yasuo. I've found that they work well for him. The attack speed helps with farming, and you get some extra health and attack damage. I've also found that having Critical Chance Runes can be good for winning trades with Yasuo.

Masteries


Normal 21/9 masteries for Yasuo. Not a whole lot to say here.

Skill Sequence/Abilites



Always start with your Q. Always. I recommend in most situations maxing your Q first. It's good for winning trades in-lane, and helps farming. Sometimes I do max my E first, and here is why.

Your E does a good amount of damage to help farm. It is very good for getting around faster while around minions. You can go into the enemy through their minions to get a good poke onto them and dash back to your minions. Maxing this give you a lesser CD on it, and more damage. Overall, it helps if you are struggling in lane.


Your W, Wind Wall, is good for blocking hostile projectiles. You can use it to save an ally, block a Jinx/Ashe/Ezeral ult, etc.. It has many uses.

And finally, your R is what makes playing Yasuo fun. Who doesn't want to chop your foes up into tiny bits in the air? The only thing is, you can only ult when foes are knocked up. So what's really good is to have allies that have knockup abilities. (Malphite ult for example)

Top Lane

Playing Yasuo in the top lane isn't much different than playing him in mid. The only thing I'd do different is run Teleport instead of Ignite. Most top laners are tanks, and can be tougher to kill as the game progresses. I think Teleport is better so you can split push and then TP to the rest of your team.

Summary


Yasuo is an amazing champion. He has an awesome lore, awesome skins, and is really fun to play. He does take a while to learn. Sadly I cannot really teach you HOW to play Yasuo, but give you some tips. He's one of those champs that you have to play for yourself so you can see how he works.

This guide may have sucked, but I still wish to hear your feedback. As I said, this is my first guide. Good luck learning to play Yasuo!
