Threats to Yasuo with this build

Threat Champion Notes
1
Cassiopeia Very easy lane in my opinion. Her spams are very predicable, simply Wind Wall when she poisons you and block all of her E's, then play safe until you have your cooldowns back. You can usually go aggressive on her very early, if you are able to dodge her poisoning spells.
1
Ezreal Basically no threat. You can block all of his spells, you will be able to dual him at almost any point in the game, and his auto attacks will not be able to poke you down very fast like on Corki. Stay behind the minion waves and outsustain.
1
Gragas Very easy lane. Try to deny farm with your Wind Wall when he throws a barrel. Also, his ultimate has a very easy to spot cast animation, he makes a sound as well as the large air time the barrel has, so try to time your Wind Wall after he uses that.
1
Lux Very easy. Block all her spells, she is one of the squishiest mid laners to be up against so you can harass her out of lane fast.
1
Vel'Koz Easiest lane IMO. You can block everything, Dodge all his small hitbox spells, and engage on him freely. Take advantage of his low mobility.
1
Ziggs Ziggs likes to spam keys and you can block all those. He also has an unreliable escape, and it knocks him up FOR YOU. You should destroy this lane.

Introduction

Hello, I am a Silver 1 North American Yasuo main! Ever since Yasuo's release, he has always been one of my all time favorite heroes and I never get bored of playing him. Please leave all of your requests and comments in the section below! I really hope this guide helps you to become the best Yasuo player you can be!

Runes

My standard runes for yasuo, the only thing that may be able to be swapped would be the attack damage marks for armor penetration, but otherwise these runes are very basic and work well.

Items

Standard core, always rushing Stattik Shiv. With the recent nerfs to Infinity Edge, you can swap that for BotRK for your 2nd item if you want. The 6th item and defensive item depends on your situation.

Skill Sequence

I love to Max Q, great spell, reduces the cooldown and it scales off attack speed. Some people like to Max E for the laning, I wouldn't recommend it, But do whatever works for you.


Guide Top

Spells

I love to take Exhaust and Flash because exhaust gives them reduced damage output for duals and slows them so you can always land your tornado. You can also run Flash and Ignite .

Ranked Play

I think Yasuo is an okay soloqueue champion, but heavily depends on your composition and theirs. If they have a very tanky CC team, I wouldnt recommend picking Yasuo. And if your team is lacking knockups and hard engage I would also not pick Yasuo, but I think he is a pretty good blind mid lane pick if you know what your team is playing.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pros:

Great Kit
Infinite Dashes
Awesome Wall Spell that blocks like everything
Pretty strong laning phase
Good snowball potential
EXTREMELY FUN TO PLAY
Skins and quotes are sick
Badass samurai dude

Cons:
You are literally flying into their whole team
Need knockups on your team
Sucks against hard CC
Lot of counters
Heavily nerfed
Not considered meta

Farming

Farming with Yasuo is very easy. What I do, is when I go up to a farm, I will auto attack or Q it, and then start spamming E while doing that. This way, if the auto/Q doesn't kill the minion, the instant damage from the E will. Farming with the tornado is also easy once you calculate how fast the tornado goes and cast time, but that comes with time.

End

Thanks so much for reading my Yasuo guide! If this gets a good amount of good reviews, then expect a top lane guide to come soon! Thanks so much and goodluck on the Rift with Yasuo, the Unforgiven!
