Sample Final Build
Not Updated For Current Season
Threats to Yasuo with this build
|Zed||zed is somehow situationally difficult. its more of a skill matchup in most cases. But if you know how to play Zed then you will know your window of opening is when he has used his Living Shadow.|
|Xin Zhao||Though he has a knock up and a gap closer and sustain look always to sweeping blade away from his Three Talon Strike which is his main source of damage. With Three Talon Strike on cooldown you should always win trades with ease.|
Hi there I am no means the best Player in the World but i would like to share my experience on patch 5.22 with the new masteries and items. It was when i had a Statikk Shiv and was about to buy a B. F. Sword (1300GOLD) that i realized that buying a Cloak of Agility (800GOLD) was the better buy. Since it all looks like it will become the CritMeta for ADC's because of the new mastery Warlord's Bloodlust
Pros / Cons
- ITEMS AND MASTERIES SEASON 6 PATCH 5.22 MAKES HIM PLAY LIKE A BOSS!!!
- MANALESS AND LOW COOLDOWNS
- GREAT PASSIVE WITH DOUBLE CRIT CHANCE
- PASSIVE SHIELD FOR EARLY GAME TRADING
- Wind Wall IS GREAT IN TEAM FIGHTS
- PENTAKILL CHAMP
- Warlord's Bloodlust MADE FOR !!!
- HARD TO MASTER
- YOU WILL WIN OR LOSS GAMES AND GET SCRUTINIZED FOR PERFORMING SUBOPTIMAL
- SQUISHY WITHOUT LIFESTEAL
- ULTIMATE IS USED WITH EXPERIENCE OR ELSE YOU WILL GIVE THE ENEMY A FREE KILL
My Build Explanation
This is the most OP patch for who will take advantage of Warlord's Bloodlust . So why do I say OP. Its because Warlord's Bloodlust will give you 15% critical strike damage health regen for sustain and 4 seconds of 20% attack speed which will all benefit tremendously since his passive with just Statikk Shiv and Cloak of Agility wil give you 100% critical chance. So it will proc your Warlord's Bloodlust every 2 seconds when doing a normal attack with . So this means next build is that you DONT NEED to concentrate on building your Infinity Edge or Trinity Force or Blade of the Ruined King and Berserker's Greaves and go straight to damage items B. F. Sword because you will already have the 100% crit chance and the Warlord's Bloodlust will give you the attack speed and lifesteal that you need. So you will be damaging your opponents so early that you will snowball the game so easily.
So why is there no BRK or Berserker's Greaves in my build?
Like I said you wont be needing the extra attack speed and life steal since Warlord's Bloodlust will give you both as long as you build your core item Statikk Shiv and Cloak of Agility. The patch makers of 5.22 must of forgotten that will take too much of an advantage of Warlord's Bloodlust .
Skill Sequence LvL1 - Lvl3 early laning phase
The early game is usuallty the most crucial part of your laning phase since it will determine if you will have a beast of a game or a nightmare feeding frenzy with your whole team talking trash at you.
So in some situations going Sweeping Blade first would be great but having Steel Tempest gives you that early mid ranged poke that can help you in LVL 1 laning plus using it twice will allow you to have a long range form of Crowd Control that Knocksup, Damages and can also Critical strike!!! So that said I would go 1 point to Steel Tempest at lvl 1 then 1 point on Sweeping Blade at lvl 2 and then at lvl 3 I will get Wind Wall if the jungle or your lane has any sort of long ranged attack or spell that can be blocked or else I would just get Sweeping Blade at lvl 3 for the extra cooldown/damage and mobility.
How to poke in and out safely with your passive shield
Having Sweeping Blade and Steel Tempest at lvl 2 gives you great poking power while your passive shield is up. Poking with your shield up will always give you an advantage of returning without damage.
COMBO 1 - Sweeping Blade to a minion closest to your enemy champion then Auto attack once and then use Steel Tempest then retreat by Sweeping Blade to another minion back to safety. Remember to always have your passive shield before doing another round of your combo by walking around to charge your shield.
COMBO 2 - When you have charged up Steel Tempest into gathering storm you should simultaneously Sweeping Blade and Steel Tempest to a minion close to the enemy champion to knock him up then Auto attack then retreat by Sweeping Blade.
* so why not just Sweeping Blade directly to the enemy champion? that is easier right??? well the reason for that is when you have poked your enemy enough for you to have killing potential you will always be able to Sweeping Blade into the enemy champion and then Auto Attack as many times as you can then Steel Tempest and Ignite if needed after you have done either COMBO 1 or 2.
Having Sweeping Blade available to dash in to the enemy champion is your only gap closer when your enemy is backing away and there aren't any enemy minions around.
Noobs forget that
best skills are his PASSIVE.
Though Steel Tempest and Sweeping Blade have very low cooldowns and are great harassing arsenals, using it with your PASSIVES will determine a winning lane or not.
-DONT go for exchanges without your shield passive. Without your shield you will have lower success rate of coming back healthy after an exchange.
-DONT build damage and life steal items before Critical Chance items. Your passive doubles any item with Crit chance so use it.
-DONT use your ultimate Last Breath just because you can. Experience is your best teacher with your ultimate but there is only one question to ask before going in. Will i die? if your answer is YES then DONT Last Breath to your death.
-DONT be first to go in a team fight. Though you can produce insane amounts of damage it is best to just poke with your Steel Tempest and Sweeping Blade around minions to dodge enemy harass. You can go in after the enemy team has burned most of there crowd control abilities. Be patient.
For 5 v 5 Ranked teams I would go Teleport and either Ignite or Flash because teleporting to a team fight while at top can really help your team out but that needs good communication and good ward placements which you wont usually see in solo que. But for solo que I would go Flash and Ignite for maximum kill potential since you will be trying to snowball your lane as much as possible.
