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.
Why Yasuo is just broken
Often you hear people crying about how OP Zed is, and yea, he's good, but take a second and look at Yasuo. Low cooldowns, infinite dashes, the getthatoutofhere wall, an AOE knockup and ult and 50% armor penetration. Need I say more? Of course I do because some of you reading this are clueless as to what he does. So I'll tell you.
How does Yasuo do what he does?
Yasuo's passive, Way of the Wanderer gives him double crit chance He does, however, deal 10% reduced crit damage. He also has flow instead of mana. Yasuo's flow bar fills by moving or dashing. When you have a full flow bar, you get a shield that pops up whenever you get smacked by a champion or monster. It also consumes all of your flow in the process.
Yasuo's Q is Steel Tempest. He thrusts his sword in a line dealing damage and giving him a stack of Gathering storm. If he has 2 stacks of Gathering storm, his next Q throws out a tornado that knocks up enemy everything. If cast while using you E, Sweeping Blade, It casts in an AOE circle. It can also knockup targets when you have 2 stack of Gathering storm. Spam this on everything, as it has no cost, SUPER low cooldown, and is your main damage thing.
Yasuo's W is Wind Wall. It puts up a wall for a few seconds that blocks any projectile. This means no Ezreal sniping you at 20 health from bot lane. KILL DENIED!!!
Yasuo's E is Sweeping Blade. It dashes in the direction of a selected enemy target dealing magic damage that escalates each time you cast it, up to 2 times. This has a 0.1 second cooldown at max rank and is great for dodging skill shots, escaping a risky situation, and closing gaps between you and the enemy mid.
Yasuo's Ultimate is Last Breath. Yasuo blinks to a target airborne enemy champion dealing insane damage to all targets in the air near his selected target. Yasuo gets 50% armor penetration when he lands for 15 seconds. It can only be cast on airborne targets, however. You usually want to engage a fight with this because of the armor pen.
For starting, Doran's Blade and Health Potion is usually a good idea. If you feel really ballzy you can go Long Sword and 3 Health Potion. Boots of Speed and 3 Health Potion is also a decent Idea against the Banana (
Soraka) and any pokey mage like
You always want to rush Statikk Shiv, but if you get lots of gold early, get a B. F. Sword then your Statikk Shiv. After Statikk Shiv always go for an Infinity Edge. Blade of the Ruined King or The Bloodthirster after you get Shiv + I. E. is a good idea, but BORK is usually a better option. Then you want a defensive item like Guardian Angel or Randuin's Omen.
