Threats to Yasuo with this build
|Katarina||Easy since you can block many of her abilitys|
Hello! My name is TheSilentAwesome and this is my in depth guide on how to play Yasuo. I have been playing Yasuo since he first came out and have loved him ever since! I peaked Gold 5 last season and am currently Silver 4 since i have not taken ranked as seriously in the past. But less about me and lets get on to the guide!
Why should you play Yasuo?
Why should I play Yasuo you might ask? Well do you like to kill everyone? Do you want to be an assassin? Do you want to..okay im gonna stop being UberDanger just get into this ****ty guide.
What is a Yasuo
Yasuo is a melee assassin who uses his Katina and wind to his advantage. His passive is Way of the Wanderer. Passively Yasuo gains stacks of flow by moving around. Once Yasuo reaches 100 flow, he gains a shield the next time an enemy hits him. His Q and his large damage source is is Steel Tempest. He throws out his sword a small distance in front of him and deals damage (THIS CRITS!!!!) After 2 times in short succession, his next one will throw out a tornado, which knocks the enemy up (Use this for your ult, we will get there later) His W is Wind Wall, Yasuo throws up a wall which blocks all incoming projectiles...thats it.. His E is Sweeping Blade, Yasuo dashes to a target position and deals damage. The more Yasuo dashes the more damage he can deal and stacks up to two times. If you also cast Q while dashing, you use steel tempest in a circle, this also procs the tornado. And finally his final ability is his R, Last Breath. Yasuo can ONLY CAST WHEN AN ENEMY IS IN THE AIR. Yasuo suspends an enemy (or multiple enemies) in the air and throws them on the ground dealing damage to them.
Pros / Cons
Pros: Lots of damage
Lots of mobility
Wall that blocks stuff
Cons: Locked down easily
Semi Hard to play
Okay so Yasuo is recommended to have a multiple knockups and this does help alot. Champions like Malphite, Janna, Wukong, and anyone who really has a knockup is very well with Yasuo because you can use your ultimate, Last Breath. Although, this is not necessary as Yasuo does have his own Yasuo and a skilled Yasuo can set ults for himself.
His W is very unique as it was the first of its kind (until Braum, but still is different) It blocks almost all moves coming from a champion. His ultimate is also unique as it is based off of player suspension, which before Yasuo was never seen before.
Farming with Yasuo should be quite easy as you can use your Q and E combo to circle dash and farm easily and can get minions from far away using your tornado.
I really hope this guide could help you in some way! If you could help back this would be much appreciated by giving the guide a good rating!
Thank you so much and have a wonderful day!
