(11.3) In-Depth Guide into Yone, the Unforgotten

By Johan Paracelso
Hello there! I am glad you decided to read this guide about Yone, the Unforgotten, I am trying my best to make this guide as usefull as possible, so, let's get into it

I'll explain you the basics of Yone, just, don't over think it, if you are knew to this champion, stick to the basic concepts, then, you should go for advanced plays... Welp, here goes nothing!
Combos Back to Top
So, the first thing I'll explain are his combos, they can be tricky, but they all are based on one thing: hitting Q3. The Yone's Third Q is a great trading machine, it provides some Physical Damage and CC, it is a dash as well, so you can use it on some original ways I'll explain some combos now

Lane Trading Combo: E Q3 Auto W E2
Level 6 Execute Combo: E Q3 R Auto W Q Auto Auto Q E2 Q3
Redirect: Q3 Flash (Yeah, you can change the position of your Q3 using Flash when you are casting Q3, you can do it forwards as well to deal some extra damage if they are runing away, include Flash on the Level 6 Execute Combo if necessary)
Yone's Beyblade: Q3 Flash E R W Auto Q Auto Auto Q Auto E2 Q3
Following up ganks: E Q3 W Auto Q Auto Auto Q E2 Q3 R
Runing away from ganks: Q3 Flash (if necessary)
Laning phase Back to Top
Ok, so, despite even tho you may think Yone is OP and all, he is the third weakest Champion during laning phase (Only Yuumi and Kassadin are weaker than him) So, there's a way to play the laning phase without dying 10 times, some tips if you want to carry on to late game

1.Don't overextend: Yone is weak early on, so, if you are low for any reason, please, back right now. if you overextend yourself, you are going to get wrecked
2. Look for short trades: You have some tolls for good trades, specially after you are Level 3. You can outrade anyone using the classic E Q3 Auto W E2, it is pretty hard for pretty much everyone to outrade this, and the Doran's Shield and Fleet Footwork will sustain you enough to be invencible
3. Try to farm: If you farm good enough, you should be able to get some gold without killing, Gold=Items, Items=Stats, Stats=Being OP. Try to farm everything you can, destroy your lane without even killing your oponent
4. Abuse their mistakes: They'll probably try to stay on lane if they doesn't have enough gold for a good recall, so punish this, if your enemy is low, and you have R, you can try and go for a kill, but this isn't priority, your priority is to get feed and do not die

If you play safely your laning phase, grab the CS, and just DON'T DIE, you can get feed, like, you can be 3/0 and have four items, believe this, items are better than early kills, just scale, it shouldn't be difficult if you don't commit suicide
Mid game Back to Top
After laning phase is over, you should at least have one item (Berserker and Mythic)
Usually, the people try to group mid and a ARAM starts, so, how can you avoid this?

It is midgame, so, there should be Tier 1 Top and Bot Towers, go for a sidelane and start split pushing, your team will probably die since they are 4v5, but you are making a difference on the map, so the enemy team will go after you. If they decide to go two to stop the Yone, your team will win the 4v3,and if they don't send anyone, you will get feed af, solo XP and Solo Gold, you are not sharing minions with your team.

Be there for objectives. I said "avoid Teamfights" but, I should've said "avoid UNNECESARY Teamfights" if there is an objective up, like the Second Herald, or a Drake, you should try to hunt down the enemy jungler, then, fight with your team for the objective, then, go with them using the Herald to destroy everything, and after she dies, you should back and try to split push once again
Late game Back to Top
Congratulations! You are feed, is 24:00 on the timer, ans you have boots and 100% Critical Strike, so, what do we do? Easy, we should group up

If the enemy team let you destroy both side lanes, all you have to do is to finally group with your team. And beat the **** out of the enemy team. With all this split pushing, you are very far ahead the enemy team, both in gold and XP, so you are probably even the one who has the biggest level on the game, make use for it, and fight this one last Teamfight to go against all odds, against the enemy Nexus

You need to position yourself almost perfectly, it's true, you may have a lot of Lifesteal, but you are still a squishy meele champion, so, wait for the tanks to engage, then use your E+R and combo whoever you catch up, try to aim for the squishier and weaker objectives, then, after eliminating their damage (Prio when everyone is feed supp > adc > jg/mid > top and finish the game
Why you should go Doran's Shield Back to Top
Ok, so, I know a lot of people preffer the Doran's Blade over pretty much everything, but hear me out: Yone's early game is WEAK. You can't win trades unless the enemy doesn't hit you back, so, if you go with Doran's Blade, you will need to deal damage in order to heal yourself, and is only a 2.5% of healing, based on the damage you deal, so, it is pretty much impossible to stay healty with the D Blade, but, the D Shield will give a lot more sustain, since it will heal you if the enemy attacks you, it can literally be an Auto and the D Shield wil heal you and help you to acomplish your main objective: STAYING ALIVE

Doran's Shield is way better than Doran's Blade, at least on Yone. Even tho, you probably should sell it when you have four items
