Carry Yourself Yasuo
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.
Threats to Yasuo with this build
|Ekko||This is a really easy lane. Start E and max E. Poke him down early and make sure you NEVER get hit by both parts of his Q. If you do, you're bad (jk lol).|
|Nidalee||Block her important spears, dodge the others. E through her when she jumps to you. Trade your Q for hers early.|
|Twisted Fate||Block the gold card, trade with him early. Watch for his gold card baits.|
|Vladimir||This matchup's usually played in the top lane, but still, use E and play REALLY aggressive early. It's fairly easy to bait his W and get a kill.|
Pros / Cons
Very mobile with Sweeping Blade
Two good passives to be used offensively and defensively
Useful in teamfights if the enemies are 'knocked up'
Strong dueling ability
Counters abilities like Ezreal, Caitlyn, and Fizzs' Ultimates
Relies on laning phase to be useful
Self-reliant to use ult if his teammates don't have a knock up
Can be squishy if building damage
Can be countered by ranged champions in laning phase
Has nearly no damage if he falls behind early
So when Yasuo's teaser and champion spotlight were released, something in my head made me think "I'm gonna main the **** out of this guy", and two years later, here I am, still maining Yasuo. I'm not sure if it was the mechanical ability or what, but I think that I wanted to get better with champion mechanics in general, so I decided to spam Yasuo, and within 5 games, I got my first pentakill! I was in bronze at the time, so now I feel that it didn't really 'count'. I think Yasuo is a really good champion to learn because he is good for all skill levels. He is one of those champs who has a low difficulty to learn, but an insanely high skill cap. This isn't like Season 3 Kassadin or anything... So when I first started league of legends back in early Season 3, my name was IAMANINJA7... My friend convinced me to start playing league and he had a similar name. Then, when I started to main Yasuo, I changed it to "TheYasuoNA", as you can tell if you watched one of the videos above. I then took a break from Yasuo and for some reason decided to main Riven, so I changed my name to "FizzInHerVaJanna". That was my name up until recently when Riot did a name sweep and I was forced to change my name, so I chose "I Dont Main Top" because I actually do main top, but I main Yasuo mid. See, in solo queue, I prefer to play Yasuo, but when playing with friends, I'm always the top laner, so I have to practice that too!. Sadly enough, I didn't make it to diamond this year, but Platinum is pretty decent and I hope to get diamond next season!
