Introduction

Yasuo is High Mobility, High Damage Fighter and Assassin who excels both in Team Fights and Cat Fights. Yasuo is hard to use at first, but an when played by an experienced player, can be really deadly.


Guide Top

Runes

Your Runes focus around Crit Chance and Crit Damage, taking advantage of his Passive Ability. The Armor and Magic Resist is just for Durability. The Armor Penetration Marks, Last Whisper and Last Breath Armor Penetration Bonus are for MASSIVE Penetration.


Guide Top

Masteries

The masteries focus on Attack Speed, Cooldown Reduction and Attack Damage, well because Yasuo needs those things. He needs to deal a lot of Damage while also lasting long in a Team Fight.


Guide Top

Items

The items, just stick to the Core Items above and just add situational items depending on how the game goes.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Prioritize his Q and E. Of course, getting your ultimate at available levels. Simple: Q<E<W


Guide Top

Spells

Usually, I take Flash and Ignite, if I want to play it safe, I get Flash and Barrier.

Pros / Cons

Pros:


+High Mobility
+Can chase effectively if done right
+Can block ANY Projectile
+Harmonica/Flute skills
+Can kill fast while being a bit durable
+Can speak in Japanese and Ancient Ionian
+Is very useful in Team Fights

Cons:


-Very squishy Early to Mid Game
-Weak Pre-6
-No snowball = Very weak
-3rd Q missed + No Knock-up in team = No Ult
-Needs to Cast Q three times and land a skillshot in order to use Ultimate without Knock-ups
-I don't understand Japanese or Ancient Ionian

Farming

Use your Q at level 1. At level 2, it would be easier to use your E, since Q still has a long cooldown at these stages of the game. Once you get a Statikk Shiv, one Q = half a minion wave.

Combos! (Thanks to the Champion Spotlight)

1. Harass Combo (Can be done Pre-6): E-Q-E
-Get a full flow bar.
