Threat Champion Notes
5
Lee Sin Lee Sin is one of the more common junglers in Patch 5.2 but Yasuo can easily dodge or negate his 'Q' with a well timed/placed windwall or a very well timed dash causing the 'Q' to go right past yasuo, if the lee builds full damage be wary he has high burst potential that can put you down if you don't smite him

Introduction

Hello, my IGN is Mungkone08 and although I'm only bronze(season 4 silver;still need to climb), I've discovered some really nice (not so) troll picks that people don't really expect. I am not in the slightest bit good at Yasuo since I'm fairly new to playing him, but in a normal game my friend invited me to I was apparently, Jungle, I decided to "troll" going yasuo jungle, which I have done once when yasuo was free week a month or two ago. I decided many things when I finished that game, one being- "Wow, this actually worked pretty well I should see if someone has figured out how to make this viable in ranked."- Sadly I've seen no guides on yasuo jungle. So, I decided to make one :D

Runes

I know some people might freak out if they didn't have the extra protection that MR gave them in the early game when ganking or encountering AP champions since often times, they deal A LOT of damage. the thing with Yasuo is many AP champions are ranged so windwall can cover you as you run away or pretty much negate their damage. I chose flat AD glyphs because 1) MR is useless in the jungle 2) More AD means faster clear speed. All in all this is, almost, a pretty standard Yasuo rune page

Items

I am by far one of the more...unorthodox Yasuo players from build alone, I build Yasuo as with a single crit item in the jungle and in normal lanes because that's, in my opinion, all he needs. First you will of course want to get the skirmisher's Sabre because the smite effect is that basic attacks will deal true damage over time to the marked champion while also reducing their damage to you; This makes it the perfect jungle item for Yasuo in duels, then I go into the hydra for the clear speeds to get easy stacks on your devourer enchantment. Then get boots, get tier 1 or 2 while building hydra, for the boot enchantment i suggest going alacrity for the extra movement speed it gives you it helps with ganking and counter-ganking. If your team is behind I suggest getting homegaurds to defend and get to your jungle faster, have to keep getting those stacks somehow ^_^. The Statikk Shiv AKA Yasuo's bread and butter is fourth on the list of items to get, if you haven't realized what I'm doing yet you need to read more carefully because getting this item is all because of the CLEAR SPEED you really want all the items you can that can help clear jungle faster so that you can really push your devourer enchantment to the limit. Next is your choice actually, it's either BT or Botrk, I suggest going BT for high burst champions because the shield from BT pretty much blocks alot of the damage, but if you're against 1 or 2 champions with alot of HP you want to get Botrk because of both its active and passive effects which helps shred through tanks. Lastly you will want one of the situational items of your choosing
