S6 Yasuo Build
Vs Heavy Ap
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
|Xerath||Snowball him with e+q auto, e out. Wind wall his stun and dodge skillshots with your E.|
|Fiddlesticks||Middlesticks? Just push lane, don't trade with him. He has zero wave clear.|
|Karthus||Waste his mana by constantly E'ing around him and on him. Go in and stick onto him, but if he uses his Defile, back off. His defile can hurt. Remember that your 3'rd Q can cancle his ultimate channel. Consider getting a Maw into late game.|
|Morgana||Pre-6, if she uses snare, just go in and do as much damage as possible. Care for her black shield since it can ignore airborns.|
|Twisted Fate||One of the easiest matchups for yasuo. Wind wall his gold card if he tries to stun you, and go in on him. Snowball him in lane.|
Hello everyone who is looking at this guide. I am currently in Gold 5. I know my elo is pretty low, but I think I at least understand the basic mechanics of Yasuo and how to play him. I started playing leauge at the start of season 6. I played over 200 games with Yasuo so far, and my Yasuo has 350k mastery points. Anyways, thank you for taking a look at my guide, let's get started.
Yasuo is a champion that has easy mechanics to pick up, but hard to fully make use of it. Yasuo has lot's of potential on what he can do depending on the summoner's ability to make use of his kit. He is definitely the carry-type champion who can 1v5. Once you learn and master Yasuo, you will be carrying games easily if you have a decent matchup. Yasuo is a good pick against immobile mages/casters who has a lot of skillshots.
Bringing fervor of battle on Yasuo is extremely good since you have to stick onto your laner in order to do a lot of damage to them.
I really like getting phanthom dancer on Yasuo since PD allows you to outtrade your laner easily if you are not behind. It is also good for escapes and chasing people. It provides much more than statikk shiv.
What I usually build on Yasuo is PD, Boots, IE, Triforce, Lifesteal item, Defensive item
For Defensives, I like to get a GA, Maw or Sterak's Gage.
Max E, and then Q.
When the game just started, if you think you can Harass them while they are trying to CS at early levels, start Q. If you are against immobile mages who did not start with a CC, start E and dash 2 times onto minion, autoattack, dash, autoattack, and dash back.
For summoner spells, Always bring flash for obvious reasons, and you can choose to get exhaust or ignite. Bring exhaust if your laner has high burst (zed, talon, etc.) and bring ignite if you think you can go for a early kill against a immobile mage.
Don't bring Yasuo into ranked unless you are a experienced Yasuo player. I am not calling you guys bad at Yasuo, the reason is because Yasuo has too many hard matchups. If they see you picking Yasuo, they can easily counterpick you and the laning phase will be much harder. Also, I don'r recommend picking Yasuo if your team does not have anyone else to provide a knockup for you. Micromanaging your 3rd Q during a teamfight can be hard.
Pros / Cons
Yasuo is a champion that if you get behind on, it's really hard to catch up. However, if you get the slightest lead against your laner, the game should be easy as long as the enemy does not have a super fed person.
Yasuo has high damage output, really good mobility and decent croud control. However, Yasuo is extremely squishy (unless you are building tank). If you get cc'd and focused during a teamfight, its really hard to survive. He is like the AD-carry of the mid lane.
During a teamfight, you should never be the one who is starting the fight. Make sure your tanks go in first to soak up most of their CC, and then you can go in. It's even better if you have a knockup on your team, but if you don't, knock their main damage dealer up, ult him/her and kill that person. After that, with your 50% armor pen, you can start to melt their entire team. Remember: NEVER go in first, let your tanks go in, and then follow up.
If your team is the one who is getting engaged on, wind wall your adc, and block as much projectiles as possible, then disengage.
3rd q, dash onto minion 2 times, dash onto enemy champion, airborn, autoattack, ult, Q
Dash onto minion, Q the enemy champion, Dash back
Dash onto minion, autoattack champion, Q champion, E champion, autoattack champion, dash back.
These combos are just examples, there are countless combos that you can make with Yasuo.
Quick tip: You can position your EQ again by flashing mid-E and Q-ing.
Thanks for reading my guide! I hope you learned something new about Yasuo. Have a nice day ;)
