Champion Introduction
Yasuo is a champion released in 2013, he is a melee ADC being played majoritarily in Mid, Top and Bot Lane. Yasuo is a good Champion when mastered so don't be scared of doing bad when you start playing him, take your time and try to learn as much as possible.
Yasuo's is currently not that bad in the Mid lane Meta, he is really strong in Bot lane but pretty weak in Top lane. He has a lot of versatility and his build can vary character to character. He is definitively a good character in Season 11.
Pros & Cons
PROS
+ Good Damage
+ Versatile character
+ Strong Mid and Late Game
+ Really useful in TeamFights
+ Good for 1V1's
+ Have a lot of synergy with Knock-Up based characters like Alistar

Yasuo, is a good character with a lot of Damage, Attack Speed and Critical Strike give him a lot of DPS. It allows him to shred Tanks and One-Shot squichies.He is a versatile character, you can modify his builds and Runes to help him adapt to the enemy Comp. Yas is a really strong champion in Mid and Late Game, he is almost instoppable when he gets his Core Items ( Berserker's Greaves, Immortal Shieldbow, Infinity Edge). He is really strong in Teamfights, his Ult matches well with Knock-Up based champions like Alistar, using his Ultimate lengthens the duration of airborne, leaving the enemy unable of using abilities. He is pretty good for 1V1's and Solo Kills.
CONS
- Squichy character.
- Vulnerable to Crowd Control .
- No escape tool except minions.
- Weaker Early than he is in Mid or Late Game.
- Takes time to master.


Yasuo has flaws like every character in the game. he is squichier than most of the midlaners since he got nerf'ed on Patch 10.12. Yasuo is really vulnerable to Crowd Control , it can get him killed really easily. He is also really vulnerable to ganks, that's why freezing is the best option for Yasuo, he has no escape tool except his dash, if he gets ganked while there is no creeps he is most certainly dead. Yasuo is weak before he gets his LVL 6, at LVL 6 you will able to Full Combo, carry TeamFights etc...Finally, Yasuo is hard to master, you won't become a Yasuo master just in 1 week, it takes time to learn Combos and Wall Jumps.
Yasuo's Abilities
PASSIVE
ABILITY
Way of the wanderer (Passive): Yasuo's Critical Strike Chance is increased. Additionally, Yasuo builds toward a shield whenever he is moving. The shield triggers when he takes damage from a champion or monster.
Q
Steel Tempest (Q): Thrusts forward, damaging all enemies in a line. On hit, grants a stack of Gathering Storm for a few seconds. At 2 stacks, Steel Tempest fires a whirlwind that knocks Airborne. Steel Tempest is treated as a basic attack and scales with all the same things.
W
Wind Wall (W): Creates a moving wall that blocks all enemy projectiles for 4 seconds.
E
Sweeping Blade (E): Dashes through target enemy, dealing magic damage. Each cast increases your next dash's base Damage, up to a max amount. Cannot be re-cast on the same enemy for a few seconds. If Steel Tempest is cast while dashing, it will strike as a circle.
R
Last Breath (R): Blinks to an Airborne enemy champion, dealing physical damage and holding all Airborne enemies in the area in the air. Grants maximum Flow but resets all stacks of Gathering Storm. For a moderate time afterwards, Yasuo's critical strikes gain significant Bonus Armor Penetration.

Combos

The Beyblade
Easy
Really useful combo to get your enemy off guard and airborne them, if you need to gain distance and kill a low HP target, this is the good Combo to use

The Airblade
Easy
Good combo, it's basically a Beyblade but with R, it's a good engage. Use it if you want to take a fight by surprising your enemy. You can try to sneak an Auto-Attack before using R

The Airblade + Galeforce
Medium
Enhanced version of the Airblade, if you took Galeforce as your Mythic Item, you can try to sneak an Auto and/or a Galeforce before using your R.
The Keyblade
Hard
One of the hardest Combo on Yasuo, this combo is perfect in TeamFights, you deal a lot of Damage to multiple enemies. you can try to sneak an Auto-Attack before doing Sweeping Blade Steel Tempest and Last Breath.
The Keyblade + Galeforce
Extreme
The hardest Combo on Yasuo, basically, you use Galeforce before executing the combo. It maximizes the damage on the first target, it also allows you to close the gap between you two. You can also try to sneak an Auto-Attack before doing Sweeping Blade Steel Tempest and Last Breath.
