Runes

Marks - (Recommended)
You run 4.6% Crit to bring yourself to 99.2% Crit with IE/Shiv, and it's pretty helpful for lane when you get that random crit on them.

Marks - (Recommended)
Fill up the rest of your marks with attack damage since it's the most efficient mark for Yasuo.

Seals - (Recommended)
In the case you're vs Zed/Riven/Talon or other all AD champions, go Flat Armor yellows.

Glyphs - (Recommended)
You basically run MR all the time, unless they literally have no magic damage, then you can run armor blues.

Quintessences - (Recommended)
Flat AD, no questions asked.

Starting Items

You have 3 options that you can start with.

(VS Skillshots)
Boots of Speed and 4 Health Potions: Good vs Syndra/ Ziggs, basically AP Mids that are skillshot reliant and very harass heavy, gives you good sustain and helps you juke skillshots.

(Recommended)
Doran's Blade and one Health Potion: Good vs melees/non harass-heavy mids such as Akali/Zilean, and/or mids that you want to all-in at level 2 or 3. I normally start with Doran's Blade and start Boots of Speed situationally.

(Optional)
Long Sword + 3 Health Potions: I don't normally ever get this, but it's not too bad in the case you want to rush Vampiric Scepter, works well vs any mid.

Final Items

Statikk Shiv
This is basically your first item to buy, gives you your first huge power spike, helps farming and gives you some wave clear.

Blade of the Ruined King
This is the standard buy as it gives you a lot of sustain, helps you get to your Q CD cap, and lets you split vs top laners efficiently and win duels.

Infinity Edge
You buy this second in the odd case that you're super rich and can afford a B. F. Sword straight up. This item is better for team fighting as it gives you more burst damage.

The Bloodthirster
It's kind of a luxury item as you usually won't get fed enough, but if you want more damage out of your 6th item you can buy The Bloodthirster. Otherwise just get another defensive item.

Randuin's Omen
You can buy this after your first 2 or 3 damage items if you're against a heavy physical team or if you want to double up on defensive items.

Banshee's Veil
You can buy this after your first 2 or 3 damage items if you're against a heavy magic team, or if you want to double up on defensive items.
