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.
Hello. I am a silver Yasuo main coming to teach you plebs how to turn your Trashuo into Godsuo.
Yasuo is an extremely easy champion as of now. He has so many tools to deal with every situation and get penta kills wherever he walks. If you like pressing Q and dealing 700 damage on a 1.33 second cooldown than this is the champion for you.
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Mark of Attack Speed
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed
I use 9 armor seals because since you are melee, you will get poked by ranged auto attacks.
The 9 magic resist glyph's are to reduce spell poke by those pesky mages.
And the attack speed marks are to make your Q, Steel Tempest, lower its cooldown.
The quints are pretty much self explanatory, but having the 2 quints of attack damage is because without them, you would have so little AD that you might as well go AP.
Now, these are pretty much the standard masteries. You take the keystone Warlord's Bloodlust because as Yasuo you live and breath crit, and healing for 15% of that damage is a nice plus. Oh, and did I mention you get 20% attack speed for 4 seconds as well?
You go into the Resolve tree because of Yasuo's passive, Way of the Wanderer.
- You know why.
- This can help you snowball your lane and get to the glorious 100% crit sooner!
- I used to run this spell always. It is a great debuff and can make sure you win those 1v1's.
- I take this if I'm going Topsuo because usually you can't really kill your tanky lane opponent.
- Get devourer, farm for 20 mins, earn the quadra.
Trading and Tips Fedora
When laning with Yasuo, you need to keep track of your opponents movements. Yasuo is very vulnerable to full on ganks from champions like Xin Zhao and Vi. If you see your opponent getting aggressive out of nowhere, then be aware that they might be getting a gank.
Look for good opportunities to trade, such as when they blow their cooldowns or when they get close to a minion. You want to Sweeping Blade then Steel Tempest followed up by an auto attack or two, then dashing back to your side of the wave through another minion. This is Yasuo's classic trading combo.
Try to hold on to Wind Wall until you absolutely need it. This ability alone can really turn the tide of an engagement, blocking spells and even ults.
Try to use your ultimate Last Breath as early as possible to get the extra 50% bonus armor pen. (Although you get style points for using it as a finisher)
When trying to escape death, note that the easy part is getting to the Rift Scuttler and dashing through it, gaining distance from your predator.
Team fighting comes down to you trying to get your ult Last Breath of on as many people as possible, dealing as much damage as possible.
