Threats & Synergies
That's Equal. Better Yasuo wins you know... I recommend ONLY Immortal Shieldbow In This Matchup.
Yone is really strong. Fighting him as Yasuo is almost a mirror fight but his Shield is unexpectable. Try to evade fighting him while his E is active and land a Tempest when he goes back to his body for a Counter Attack. Better Samurai Wins!
This Champion Is a MONSTER, Better Ban him or go to mid instead. Can be countered only with the right plays!
SWAP/DODGE RIGHT NOW THIS THING IS OP
How Much annoying can a champ be??? Stun and block and crit when low... wow. Wait for a gank that will force his block then try to bait his W so you can go in finally.
If you have a Tempest ready to unleash, don't use it like an idiot but bait her W by using W - Wind Wall back and Q3 - Steel Tempest Towards her,, then go all in. If she's ulting you, use minions to escape as far as you can and block her W's slow with your Windwall. Get All the Strong AA Counter items from the list to make sure she will be weak.
Jax is strong but he is moving off-meta from patch to patch. I don't see him a lot in games for some reason. anyways your Q DOES work on his E, and you can try to dash to dodge his stun.
Sylas is a massively strong champion due to his high damage and self-healing. Depending on your Team's Ultimates and the player's skills. Windwall his E to prevent him to use your own ult on you. I recommend Mortal Reminder.
Wow Her E+Q Is OP. You'll need extreme reflexes to block it.
This champ right here have tons of damage and I don't recommending you to fight him from close range. try to dodge his Barrels by your E - Sweeping Blade on minions and block every Q to his barrels by your W - Wind Wall
Irelia can stun a lot and can have a lot of damage. You will need to use a lot of combos to break through her.
His Silence > Knock Up > One Shot with R combo is DISGUSTING. dodge his Q with E - Sweeping Blade and try to make an R if you have to fight him.
High damage output and a lot of mobility. Magic resist and avoiding fights is the solution here.
You CAN Wind Wall his R, but it's hard to react so fast most of times. He got really high damage and mobility, and you'll need a gank to cc him down.
He can really block your mobility with one good E - Event Horizon. Use wind wall to block Q + R and try to dodge his W by walking inside his E or moving freely with E - Sweeping Blade dashing if you're not inside of his E
Stay out of his W and kite him until his Q is over. try to ult asap so you can break his armor for the rest of the fight with him.
FORBIDDEN PICK!!! He's So Strong And Riot Keeps Buffing Him For No Reason... Try to dodge his W while WindWalling His Q/R
Broken ass stunner. If you got the reflexes you can block his Q but then he will Flash + R on you. get QSS and upgrade to Silvermere to avoid Chain CC
He outplays every fight by clicking R. make sure to buy QSS!
He's strong. you'll need to be depended on your team and your immortal shieldbow. Q his clone to stack it or even E for a gap close when he's running or chasing.
This stunner is annoying as hell. Block her Q with windwall and get QSS.
Strong. watch for Mega
Ouch that stunning man... Try to kite him and don't fight him in close range 1v1. at least early until he goes useless later.
Immortal Shieldbow is a must. His burst may be high, but if you can block his main damage Q and/or be inside the minion wave so he will deal at least less damage you'll be fine. Be smart and predict when will he W to his shadow and send your Q to there.
You can be a Trash or she can be a Trash, depends on the person. be sure to get out of her stuns. Also, you can block her R - Wind Slash by your W - Wind Wall. try to time it right as best as you can.
You can block a lot of her kit with W, but get QSS to make sure she won't stun you
Annoying vampire that can spam heals with no mana cost... just don't be careless and always remember he can W to avoid your knock.
Windwall is the key here. don't dive because you'll get stunned and just wait for the moment his Energy is low.
High damage, High mobility, High skill. Dodge/Block Q and ask your team if his R is up or not to make sure you won't find yourself inside enemy's teritory.
He's hard to kill and hard to run from since he can spam Q to slow you as hell, but he is lacking damage.
This champ don't have mechanics actually. you have a lot. Make sure you're using your E to run from his E, and if you get Silenced by his Q, better go back a little and try to recover your shield again.
Block Q and dodge W's zone. He got high damage and 99% of times he will only fight with his R ready. Try to engage on him instead of countering his own while his R is on cooldown.
No matter what - W her Q is your highest priority in the fight with her. chasing her will be probably impossible after she uses E, but if you have a wave to reach her when it's on cd, it might be possible.
The Ruined King is really strong, I'll recommend igniting him and never go one by one against him - he wll just get another and another ults. instead, group up against him because his AoE Power isn't great and he'll find himself stuck between your teammates eventually.
Annoying Tank with %HP-Based damage. Try to kite him and ask for help if you can. make sure to get Executioner's Calling and upgrade it to Mortal Reminder asap.
If he's not too fed you can R on him to win a 1v1.
ANNOYING FLOWERSSS!!! Block her root and try to kill her before the ADC (If she's the Supp)
Dodge-able abilities. Make sure to look for her ball position and you can destroy her. If you struggle, don't be afraid to get some Magic Resist. her damage is high.
If you can windwall one of her q's early she won't be able to win a trade because of how much energy she needs. If you can bait out her W you can go for an all in.
This champ is MEGA ANNOYING. slowing all around and blocking you with his Ice Shit... Try to play safe and wait for a gank.
Should be bullied because his AA / Q / E are simply blocked by you Wind Wall so he can't do anything and barely even snare you. Warn your team when he reaches 6 because he might use it to roam into Drake / Herald. Season 11: Now Ryze has become a Monster in Late game thanks to the new items, he climbs up to Even.
High damage early especially and overall in the game, but you can WindWall his W and R so his damage will really be limited until cooldowns reset.
You can't really block any of his abilites. But he is weak early game. If you can CC him with Q while he's dashing with his E, you can lock his mobility for a long time and Kill him due to his low deffense and hp. (This dude rushes Nashor + Luden's, not HP+AP Items)
You can totally harass him because his passive and Q based against magic damage enemies while you have physical. Ruin his scale as much as you can and make him useless (until lvl 16 and then the game changes so maybe you will need to look for some resistance.)
Annoying yet but squishy and your knock up can disable his W and R (Channel). He will probably be at Jungle but I saw some laners (Mostly Supp) Fiddle.
Executioner's Calling and E far from his Fear = You are good to go. Maybe a teammate can help too
That's not hard at all to win Katarina, just Windwall her Q, use your own Q when she comes near and disable her Ultimate by E on minions / Knocking her up, and even W on it. You can even make her rage quit by following her roams in bot lane and get a triple kill with your support if he got some nice knocks.
Strong in Ganks and 1v1's, weak in teamfights. Group up against him and he can't do much.
Not so good now so you can block Q and dash from R and W...
COMPLETELY DESTROY HER R BY A SINGLE W.
Gragas isn't annoying... you can kill him easily I believe. just beware of his damage.
Mega Nerfed... She can also block your Tempest with her W. You can E>Q or Beyblade on her to counter it and WindWall her R / Q to minimize her damage and lifesteal.
Hard to play and weak early. his most dangerous Weapon is Cresendum (the White one) so make sure he has like the Blue and Green one because they are the worst for face-to-face fights.
Strong early, annoying stun but can be blocked easly due to it's speed.
She is not really strong now so you can win in 1v1 with no problems. Just don't let her knock you into a wall.
Should be an easy matchup. her W can be dashed with minions, her Q and E can be blocked by Wind Wall and her R can't do much but consume all of her mana when she can't Q/E.
You can block his Q and W but not anything else, he might Flay you back when you dash. annoying support. but he is not that much a problem for you in fights since he can't use his Q to stun you :)
Just dodge her snare with E and Windwall her abilities, only thing you can't windwall is her R.
Windwall everything. Try to force her R while you have a ready temepst, and then R her right when her R is about to end so after it's healing she won't move away and the kill is yours.
It's very easy to windwall her R>E since it is taking time to cast. you can go on her with your dashes so she can't use her passive in one direction, that means she will almost never hit you with her E enough times to snare you.
You can WindWall all of his abilities except for R that will deal a minor damage if he didn't mark you with his passive. also you can knock him up and disable his R.
You can ruin his life every single time he tries to breathe.
Windwall her Q, use your E back to run from her Tiger form attacks and the fight is yours.
Just prevent him from farming and windwall his W. ping your team when he is 6 so they can avoid his roams.
Your Wind Wall completely ruins his life, Putting his Q on cooldown and he can't even catch it. Enjoy :)
Executioner's Calling and destroy the player she stands on.
Wind Wall all of her kit literally and dash to get this juicy low toughness champ.
Block all of her kit with W.
Aurelion Sol is a paper. Cut this paper. Once you dash into him and WindWall his Stun, he can't do anything but a little R on you for a knockback. It won't matter 99% of the times.
You can Wind Wall her kit and reach to her with no problems if she's solo. The more allies around her, the more damage, range and heals she get.
Wind Wall is the answer here. Block/Dodge E and you are fine. If you didn't, throw a Wind Wall right before the Drowzee effect ends so you can sleep peacefuly :)
Only noobs plays him. Windwall his Q > Dash > Bully.
Strongest Synergy Ever Made In The Game! You and Your brother are UNSTOPPABLE! (Unless you are typical 0/20 twins that says gg ez)
One For All Good Times... <3
Let me tell you a story. once apon a time, Malphite used his R - Unstoppable Force. Then, the Yasuo was nearby and he quickly used his own R - Last Breath. The End (of the Enemy Team).
Their combo is great, also the damage... hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Great Ults comes with great responsibility. Make sure to combo with this girl!
Lulu is amazing! Her W will help u so much to chase the enemy and land Q faster and quicker, and her ult will WOMBO-COMBO The enemies. This synergy is NUTS!
You can both block skillshots with your shields, and can combo with Ults as well + get some armor & mr by him and apply his stuns with your Q's. What a great synergy!
Even tho she can't Airborne, she's NOT a bad synrergy, increasing AD, Attack Speed and Movespeed, and can always stick to you when you dash and move quickly. Ofc heals are good as well. Her ult can help u catch enemies more easily and she can use it for additional damage after you're using your R - Last Breath.
It's 5 only if he can get a good enemy ults like Gnar, Malphite, Orianna, Wukong, Shyvana, Zac, Azir and more AoE knock-upers.
Oh wow this jungler... WOW. He is like made just for Yasuo. 3 ways to make Airborne and his E is the best out of them.
Rakan is such a great partner <3 Combo with his W and he will keep assist u for the rest of the fight with E, Q, R to charm the enemies and Redemption for the duration.
It's time for a MASSIVE Knock Up. Dude, he can knock up With W's AA, E on Q and R, this is amazing!
Very nice friend for combos. That's not that easy to knock everybody up with his Q, but if he's doing it right - GG
If this Lee SIn has Kicked in the right place and the right time, he can knock up a lot of enemies at once. that will be a Wombo right there.
Throw Yourself then ULT will work nice
Amazing Ult. If this Gnar has Knocked the enemies to the wall, it will be even more damage for this combo.
HIS ULT IS NUTS. But only real pros can make godly knocks with him.
If Kayn picked his Red form, Rhaast, and wasn't a dummy that picking Blue form when he has a Yasuo on his team, you two can conquer them so badly.
A good hook or a flay can always help out as well as his W for escaping.
Nice jungler to have. Q and R can make nice combo with you and high damage at the end.
Very Nice Q. Gotta admit.
Nunu & Willump
Big Bro with LOOONG Knock Up Potential, he can W all the way to your enemies, you can R and he can charge his own R while the enemies are in the air, Great Synergy!
His R can knock up and his Q can stun all the targets you have ulted. not bad.
Tons of Damage. you can combo both with his E and R, and you both have a lot of sustain by shields and stuff :)
Block anything together while dashing to the enemies and land non-stop Airbornes and Damage!!!
Even tho he doesn't knock up, he can make you unkillable.
A really fine synergy. you both have knock ups in your 3rd Q's, so you can time together cool combos.
Good Combos. But if he dies and can't disable ult while you got no minions around...
If you two rush on the same enemy at once, he'll probably die. Additionaly, he has 2 knock ups!
AoE stuuner. Very good support even she don't have any knocks though.
This boy right here, is a monster. combo with his Q once and he'll start ulting and sharing the money with you.
Very nice partner that you can count on him to kill a single enemy with your ult. (If He Can A I M)
She can be good but her Shield now decays then for now she is in the 3 - OK tier.
Sometimes this can be good. Not all the time but sometimes...
1 Target Ult combo with his E, not a big combo but OK.
His Snare is amazing, but snare isn't knock...
OK yet perfect since she can't knock up and her heal is really low on herself + you alone.
A pretty fine R for you to use.
He'll E and you will R... pretty simple.
He can stand where you're gonna send you Tempest, then he will W there, and when all the enemies knocked by you, he will stun them and ult back to this place for tons of damage Wombo.
A little synergy with her Broken R
Garen can break enemy's armor with his E and your R gives bonus Armor Pen% - Combine that and bye bye tanks.
His ult is a huge boost of movement speed and he got 2 Airbornes with Q and R. Pretty nice but not perfect since it knocks for just a short time and it's hard to time right your R.
A good sleep can always help out.
Well, she can knock back. that's something :S
Her Traps is the only synergy I can think about... well :]
They are kinda good on 2v5, both are strong crit/aa champs but they don't have any combos together.
Nice stuns, can W when you're ulting to steal your kill. YAY.
She got AoE Team-Stun, so it's kinda not bad for you to use your Tempest on the enemies that got stunned.
You two wanna steal each other's kills. I know that. but you two have a lot of damage!
You both can 2v5, I believe.
If Tristana jumping to the back of the enemy, and ulting him towards you, that's the right time to use your R - Last Breath.
I mean... he's a good jungler with his Stun and lifesteal
Her Knock-Back-Stun is the only thing you can combo with her.
No... his R won't really help you
No Synergy at all...
??? Did you really check him?
No Synergy babe.
Cute but no.
Broken, but no synergy lol
She will only steal your kills...
USELESS CHAMPION THAT STEALING EVERYTHING.

How Much Time I'm Playing League - Since May 2016
What I Like About Yasuo - Actually, everything. I got hooked to his Lore and fell in love with his Amazing Design and badass personality. In-Game this champ is amazing, there's so much things that possible to do with him. Hours and hours of FUN!

Let's first talk about Yasuo's basic information
Yasuo - the Unforgiven
FLOW |MELEE |PHYSICAL
4800 | 880
We can see from these stats that Yasuo is a High-Mobility Champion, with good AoE Damage and Slaying Potential, but he's lacking Toughness and is vulnerable to Crowd Controls.
Here We GO! First one will be the one and only currentLegendary skin of Yasuo:
Demonic and Sexy
The Voice Though... OH THE VOICE THOUGH...
Fire All Around
Border (If You have)
A lot of Icons + Ward that's matching with this skin.
I'm highly recommending you to buy and use Nightbringer Yasuo , It's just PERFECT <3

Mechanic Basic Attack Animation
Voice Got Some Mechanical Effects From The Future
This Skin is pretty good, If you are a fan of the PROJECT series, go for it! :)
Red Designed Abilities
Badass Sweet Recall
Tempest Is Harder To See Since It's Darker
Splash Art Is Amazing
That was my first skin for Yasuo actually, I played it a lot and had tons of fun. this skin feels very natural to play and not too heavy and messy. Just a fresh feeling to use it.
Little Pet On Your Shoulder
Tempest Looks Thinner So You Can Confuse Enemies
Very Nice Lore :) His Sword Is Called "Song" In This Skin
I love that skin and his badass trailer. Odyssey is a great concept of a space pirate team that trying to protect the "ORA" from Odyssey Kayn and Galaxy Slayer Zed .
Edgy Design With Nice Chroma Options
Nice & Satisfying SFX
Cute Pixled Poro On Recall

This Mask On His Face Is A BOSS
Everyone likes music! This skin is fresh, deep and awesome. True Damage is living in the same lore of K/DA while True Damage Yasuo takes his place as the Manager, the DJ and the Official Beatmaker of True Damage.

Pefect Design, BEYOND PERFECT
Peaceful SFX & VFX
His Is The Best Version Of It In My Opinion
Matches With His Lore Perfectly
I think this is my favorite one, but don't let the other skins to know about this! It's theme suits Yasuo perfectly with all of these flowers and colors. It looks like he finally became in peace with himself after he got his justice back and additionaly met his brother, Yone, again. He also got a skin of this line called Spirit Blossom Yone . If you and your Yone friend wants to match skins, make sure to buy these two!
I'll Update This Chapter Whenever A New Skin Will Be Released!
For MID Yasuo I recommend stacking your with Raptors of Your / Enemy Jungle through the wall and surprise your matchup with a half-way ready Whirlwind. I recommend Warding the Enemy's Red Buff path above/under the River like this:
For TOP and MID both, you can use your to freeze without taking damage from Caster Minions. This won't go pretty well on ADC / SUPP Yasuo since you need to save it to protect yourself and your duo from skillshots or basic attacks of the enemy ADC and SUPP 's Hard CC Abilites (Like or for an example).
For JUNGLE Yasuo you can start with Red Buff , then Raptors and go to Blue Buff side and clear all of the Neutral Monsters there. You can use your to block Gromp 's basic attacks in the correct distance, and later use it to get vision on Krugs and Wall-Jump it with . Help other lanes by using their wave for mobility and Gathering Storm stacks with + and then go to Dragon with an ally or alone at Level 5 at least and Block it's attacks with
For THIS chapter, I'm leaving the job for another Legend, Shoutout to Yassuo Moe, Check out his Channel :)
Yasuo have tons and tons of combos. Let's start !
> AA >
Note That Combo Is Easier To Land Using Navori Quickblades Since It Resets
Cooldown A Little Bit.
Deadly Tempest Strike
This Is The Strongest Yasuo Combo Possible That I Know. It Maximizes The Stacks Of
Damage, Increasing It's Base Damage By 50%, Dealing Nice Magical Damage Because Of The Ability Power Of Hextech Rocketbelt And It's Active Damage , Uses
4 Times Quickly And All Of It Touches The Enemy Champion(s) One Of The Most Impossible Combos To Make And I Saw Only Yasuicide Making It True.
Try Those Combos In Practice Tool, Hope You Will Master It!
Deadly Tempest Strike
