Are Galio's Knock-ups THAT short ? He has a Knock-up on E and an AOE Knock-up his ult. What's wrong with tank Galio support ? Sorry for sending you to a Galio guide to understand my question.

Out of curiosity, the attacks of Daisy ( Ivern's ult ) knock enemies in the air? Also,how come you haven't mentioned Janna ? I've heard she's not that bad.

They do and you can ult into them. They're not amazing but it does work. Janna is okay but you won't see her that often and it can be hard to hit tornadoes against good players.

What's wrong with Nautilius ? If Malphite that has only one source of Knock UP ( his ult ) works, why not Nautilius ?

Is the fleet footwork + overheal build viable? If so, what items would you build for it? Also, into AP matchups, is a wits end rush worth doing? What would you build after wits end? And lastly, what are yasuo's best powerspikes for all-ins in the laning phase? I've recently become super tilted with yasuo and have had a lot of bad games since around the end of patch 9.3.

1. Yes fleet + overheal is viable. You get a easier laning phase in exchange for losing a lot of damage. The item build is the exact same with fleet as it is with conqueror, berserkers -> statikk shiv -> infinity edge -> situational items

2. I rush wit's end into a difficult midlane matchup, or if they have lots of magic damage in the team, for example ap mid + jgl. Wits end has more value on yasuo than most other champions because he benefits from every single stat it gives, especially the attack speed. Build can look like: wits end -> berserker/mercs -> statikk shiv -> infinity edge. You can also get infinity edge before statikk here.


3. Lvl 1 is a big powerspike against melee champions while Lvl 2 & 3 is a good spike into most ranged matchups as you have your mobility and windwall. After that it's mainly Lvl 6 with your ultimate, and then its statikk + ie powerspike but that's after the laning phase.

Also, would you ever recommend taking phantom dancer in any circumstance? I seem to have more success with that than I do with shiv recently, what are your thoughts on that?

On Yasuo and a few other champs it is yeah, even though it received some pretty big nerfs

What about Nami ? Heal and her Ult is a Knock Up.

In my opinion Bloodline is better than Alacrity especially in late game. Although it takes more stacks for full potential of bloodline it is more rewarding because you can stay longer in lane or survive a duel. With overheal, ravenous hunter and bloodthirster combination yasuo gets a powerful shield. Especially when u get more hp from the mallet to get more shield from the overheal.

It's a super strong rune as well, but then you need berserkers or another attack speed item on top of that to cap your Q cooldown since you will otherwise lose on some attack speed

Now that IE gives crit do i still need berserkers?
i mean you have full crit with PD and IE, maybe i can go different boots?

Mayuran95 (19) | February 10, 2019 9:59am
Yeah berserkers are for the early game spike, but obviously you can't take it in every single game. You can go other boots if you need it to survive. Berserkers are very popular for Yasuo mid because the attack speed and movement speed synergizes very well with Steel Tempest and Sweeping Blade, and it hasn't really changed after this patch. It became even more useful because you lost some attack speed with the new Phantom Dancer

awesome guide, how do you lane against a zed? I find myself losing to a zed every single time

Mayuran95 (19) | January 25, 2019 7:02am
Zed is a skill matchup but there are a few things you can do to make it easier.

1. You have a much stronger early game, so be sure to poke him with autos and Steel Tempest whenever he goes in to lasthit CS.

2. Don't waste windwall for 1 shuriken. Use it for when he comboes it with his Living Shadow.

3. Living Shadow has a pretty big cooldown early on, so use this to your advantage and fight him.

4. If you both have ultimate up, don't ever use your tornado first because he will obviously dodge it with Death Mark. Stack your tornado and let him ult you first. Whenever he ults, he always appears behind you, so the moment he lands, you use Last Breath and he will lose.

have you got some tips for start with yasuo you know it's a little hard to master him or maybe not, so any advise?
1

Mayuran95 (19) | January 23, 2019 3:33am
It will takes hundreds of games to master him so the best advice is probably to just play him in normals until your comfortable with his kit, and then practice in ranked afterwards. Just remember the things i said in the guide and you should be good to go

Mayuran95 (19) | January 22, 2019 7:10am
Yeah of course, it also works with your E. If you want more damage, then definitely go for that

how do you do deal with a leblanc coz i find myself banning her every game, and how will the s9 crit changes effect yasuo, are they good are they bad?
1
[-]
Mayuran95 (19) | January 17, 2019 1:29am
Rush Hexdrinker vs leblanc and take Ignite. Whenever she hits you with Q, you want to bait out her W by using Sweeping Blade on a minion as soon as she uses it, and then you're free to jump on her, or shove the wave. LeBlanc can't do anything when she's shoved in.

You can also play aggressive if your Wind Wall is up as it blocks both her orb and chains.

I have not seen those crit changes yet. Do you have a link?

Sorry for late reply, but since the new changes with pd i cant go for maw so instead do i just but a hexdrinker early then buy another later or QSS?
also i still find myself losing lane against her because of her e
