    are there ranged attacks that are not affected by the wind wall and which a

    I play kog'maw a lot recently (though i'm not too good) and jesterday i got killed quite often by yasuo...
    but when playing against him i think the wind wall couldn't block my living artillery, which would make sense as it strikes from above, however i'm not shure wether it was because of the angle, so here is my question:

    are there ranged attacks that are not affected by the wind wall and which are they?

    A projectile is any entity with a velocity that is not classified as a unit (champions, minions, monsters, etc).
    Moving units are not blocked under any circumstance, including dash abilities. Champion-summoned units, such as Orianna's Command: Attack and Maokai's Sapling Toss, are not considered to be units until they hit the ground - and thus will interact with Wind Wall while en route.

    The following projectiles pass through Wind Wall (possible bugs):
    * Nautilus's Depth Charge (visually it travels under the ground)
    * Syndra's Force of Will and Dark Sphere that are knocked-back by Scatter the Weak

    The following projectiles are not destroyed when they hit Wind Wall:
    * Fizz's Chum the Waters
    * Maokai's Sapling Toss
    * Olaf's Undertow
    * Orianna's Command: Attack
    * Sivir's Boomerang Blade will return to Sivir upon hitting the wall
    * Zed's Living Shadow

    The following projectiles are destroyed when they hit Wind Wall

    the wall only effects what passes through it. things that go over it, such as a ziggs ult, requiem or living artillery are not affected, as far as i am aware. intrestingly, annie's incinerate manages to make it through the wall, although, im not sure if this is intentional or not. but those are the only things i can think of.

    Kog ult comes from above

    I've seen his windwall affect zigg's ult, since zigg's ult is a projectile we see he throws the gigantic bomb. the requiem is it's literally coming from the sky not karthus himself. the magic causing the spell is from karthus but the damage doesn't come from karthus as a projectile. but the kog'maw ult I have no idea how that works soooo can't talk about that xD

    I would consider any ability that starts from one point, and moves airborne towards another point, a projectile. So basically abilities that are attached to the caster when hitting the target are not blocked, and those abilities that aren't however will be blocked.
    Thought there are some exceptions like Meiyhje explained while referring to the wikia, this is mostly true.

    Hooks (thresh blitz Nautilus) do not go through his wind wall.

    As per ranged attacks:
    Kayle's AA does not have a projectile, so it will go through the wall
    I'm not sure, but I believe Thresh's AA doesn't count as a projectile either.

    And the wind wall is not supposed to block Living Artillery as the "arc" is too high. It's a bug that it does, but they never fixed it on the PBE.

    Thresh's attacks are not blocked. :)
