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
|Akali||Akali is easy sice she is quite short ranged in abilities and you should be able to outpoke her with you're Q|
|Aatrox||If you go top, this is one of your easiest match-ups. the revive might be a pain in the ass, but you CAN ULT OFF HIS Q while he is flying, so its really easy to kill him.|
Hello, this is my first guide to Lol and I hope you guys find it helpful even in the slightest, please give CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK and not just be like "oh its bad" because I can't improve it without knowing what I did wrong. so read ahead!
Pros and cons
- High damage
- OP passive
- High mobility
- Easy snowballing
- Hard to fall behind
- No MANA
- Very squishy
- Little CC
- VULNERABLE TO HARD CC
You generally want to go with this rune set
Marks: ARMOR PEN, since its the greates enhancement in this kind of rune
Seals: generally want to go with flat armor, since it will help you're life since Yasuo WILL get ganked frequently to insure he dosen't progress to quickly, so these will save you're life in many cases
GlyphsThese are generally flat or scaling MR since alot of midlaners and some junglers are AP so you're survivability in lane and ganks are going to be higher
QuintessesHere, there can be alot of variation, but I tend to chose either crit chance or crit damage for the early game advantage, and remember, your passive grant x2 crit chance!
This is a standard item build:
Start doran's blade build with 1 health pot
On you're first back, you will want an Avarice bladefor the bonus money generation and crits, if you have extra money you can get boots or start up you're zeal.
Rush Static shiv for all the bonuses, then get Infinity edge once again for all the damage it gives you.
Finally, get a Raveanous Hydra and a Blade of the ruined king for the AD, percent damage, AS and lifesteal. The Last whisper gives AD and Armor pen, stacking with you're ult.
Finish off you're boots whenever you feel like it, you can literally use any pair of boots on Yasuo.
Max your Q for constant damage output and poke,you should normally put an extra point at level 3 instead of putting it in Wind wall since you shoudn't really need it at that point.
Max your E second for the scalling damage on your dash.
Max W last because it dosen't really change with levels, the size just increases a bit. Normally, you forgo a point in it at level 3, but if you are against a ranged poke heavy champ like Ziggs or Xerath, put the point in at level 3 to prevent unnecessary harm.
Put a point in you're ult whenever possible since it does a HELL ton of damage and is part of you're main combo post-six.
ALWAYS take flash as a spell, since it has so many utilities, securing a kill, escaping etc.
I usually take ignite, since it helps secure kills, but if the lane is going to be rough, Barrier or Heal are very useful
Early game, just farm in general, use your Q to poke and try to get Shiv and IE as fast as possible. If you are killed early, go for boots or another Doran's blade. If you kill your opponent early, just keep farming and push, get to 800 gold as fast as possible so you can get your avarice blade (if you feel cocky, sword of the occult is an option). Pretty much just stay a bit safe (You are almost prone to ganks), and get your Items!!! If you're ahead, then press your advantage, poke him constantly, since you have no mana, and roam.
At this stage, you should have your shiv and should be on your way to IE even if you're behind, try and roam at this point. try to roam top, since those tanks or off-tanks have very low mobility so its quite easy. Of course, push and farm. No matter who you play (unless Kassadin or Akali) you should have a CS rate of 10 per minute with avarice blade, it will give you a bunch more gold than you're opponent. Also, you should start fighting over dragon at this point, so MAKE SURE to not engage, let the tank go first to stop the CC as you are VERY squishy and very easily countered by hard CC. Try to have your Q ready for the tornado proc, since all you have to do in teamfights is tornado or knock up the squishies BUT MAKE SURE TO NOT GET HIT BY HARD CC. since it will stop you completely and get you killed. Once you knock up the squishies, just ult them and pick them off one by one with your armor pen buff from the usage of your ult.
At this rate you might be full build and doing 1000 damage with basic attacks. Try to take or bate baron, since your turnaround potential is so friggin' humongous. and you are the monster of pushing. just try not to get caught out since you are still very squishy even late-game. If you kill (with your team) the whole (or almost whole) enemy team, then you can baron or just push. At this point the latter should end the game. You should also get an elexir of fortitude, since all the stats are benefits.
Yasuo is freakin' OP as hell if not caught out or if played well. You should easily snowball and kill everything and erveryone. I hope this was helpful to you Yasuo fans or players.
Thanks for reading my guide!!!
