Yasuo The Unforgiven.
The winds of change blow through the Fields of Justice. Yasuo has come.
A marked man with nothing to lose and only his honor to reclaim, Yasuo's tempestuous path has finally found the Fields of Justice. Bear witness to his unrelenting power and learn more about the Unforgiven in the Yasuo Champion Spotlight.
Yasuo's mastery of both wind and blade is unrivalled. A lethal and disruptive powerhouse against even the hardiest of enemies, Yasuo relies on resilience and his unique Wind Wall to shield himself and his allies from distant threats while he gathers his strength through Steel Tempest. When the time comes, Yasuo uses Sweeping Blade to dash through the enemy line until he's face to face with vulnerable enemies. A final Steel Tempest launches the Unforgiven's foes to the skies, enabling Yasuo to head skywards himself and unleash his airborne ult, Last Breath.
Pros / Cons
+ No True Escape Ability
+ Hard to master
+ Very complex compared to other champions
FIRST AND SECOND CAST: Yasuo thrusts forward with his sword, dealing 20/40/60/80/100 (+100% AD) physical damage to all enemies in a line. Successfully landing Steel Tempest grants Yasuo Gathering Storm stacks for 10 seconds.
THIRD CAST: The third stack of Gathering Storm causes Steel Tempest to send out a whirlwind that travels in a line of 900 range and sends all enemies caught Airborne.
Steel tempest can critical strike and apply on hit effects for the first 475 range.
If Yasuo casts Steel Tempest during Sweeping Blade, the ability strikes all enemies immediately around him, having a radius of 375 instead.
Passive: Dashing replenishes Yasuo's Flow faster for 4/8/12/16/20% of his maximum flow
Active: Yasuo creates a wall of wind with a width of 300/350/400/450/500, that slowly drifts forward for 3,75 seconds. The wall blocks all enemy projectiles except tower hits.
Yasuo dashes a fixed distance through an enemy, dealing 70/90/110/130/150 (+60% AP) magic damage and marking them briefly.
If Yasuo uses Sweeping Blade multiple times in succession, the ability deals extra 25% damage with a 100% bonus maximum. When sweeping blade is casted on a target, the target will get marked for 10/9/8/7/6 seconds. Yasuo cannot use Sweeping Blade on an enemy that's already been marked.
Yasuo teleports to a nearby Airborne enemy champion. Upon arrival, he suspends all airborne units within a 400-radius of his target in the air for 1 second while 200/300/400 (+150% bonus AD) physical damage them. Once he lands, Yasuo gains 50% armor penetration against his enemy's bonus armor for 15 seconds.
Casting Last Breath will reset the chain on Steel Tempest.
Last Breath is a difficult skill. You only activate with your Steel Tempest or with other Teammates. But use it at the begin of Teamfights because you need the armor penetration.
Statikk Shiv is on of the first items your want to buy, the items passive will activate with regular attacks or with Steel Tempest.
Infinity Edge + Statikk Shiv will give Yasuo a 90% crit chance with his passive Way of the Wanderer. Critical damage with Yasuo is very important for when abilities are on cool down.
Last Whisper is less important but still helps Yasuo in the long run.
Blade of the Ruined King is one of the least important items but gives attack speed and life steal.
Ravenous Hydra creates great minions wave clearing with its passive but also grants good attack damage and life steal.
Farming early game with Yasuo is very important. He is in my own opinion one of the best early/mid game champions. To easily farm or harass lead with your Sweeping Blade, when entering through creeps use Steel Tempest and leave with Sweeping Blade. This combo is very important for early game laning.
During ganks stack your Steel Tempest and lead/end with Last Breath. To help gap close use Sweeping Blade on creeps.
Junglers like Nautilus, Malphite, Zac are great combos for Yasuo because of their air-born abilities. This combos with Last Breath if your Steel Tempest is not stacked.
