    Runes: Press the Attack, Triumph, Legend: Alacrity, Coup de Grace, Sudden Impact, Zombie Ward

    Take Steel Tempest level 1, then Sweeping Blade, then Wind Wall. Max Steel Tempest first. Then max Sweeping Blade.

    It's important to know how the champion works, which comes mostly through actual play experience. Important things to remember are: (1) multiple uses of Sweeping Blade increases damage of the next use, maxing at 50% more damage after the second consecutive use. (2) using Sweeping Blade and immediately following the input with Steel Tempest turns it into a circular aoe, rather than a straight line skill shot. (3) Cooldown reduction is fairly unimportant on Yasuo, as Steel Tempest's cooldown is reduced by building attack speed.

    There's a bit more to know in regards to combos and such, but it's honestly a ton of information. After you feel comfortable on the champion, I'd suggest going to YouTube and looking up ArKaDaTa, as he has short how-to videos on Yasuo's more advanced techniques.

    As far as a build goes, start with Doran's Blade, 1 Health Potion, and a Warding Totem. I'd generally recommend rushing a B. F. Sword and then a Phantom Dancer, then at least getting a Cloak of Agility if not just outright finishing Infinity Edge. You can also reverse this by rushing Phantom Dancer first and then Infinity Edge. After that, don't build anymore Critical Chance items. From there you'll need to get boots, I'd recommend either Berserker's Greaves or Ninja Tabi. The rest of the build is pretty situational, but you'll need at least 1 Life Steal item, which I'd recommend either Blade of the Ruined King or The Bloodthirster. Guardian Angel, Frozen Mallet, Maw of Malmortius are all good offensive/defensive options, or if you need to be tankier Randuin's Omen and Spirit Visage can be built as well. Mercurial Scimitar is also viable if there is heavy CC on the enemy team. Here are general recommendations for a build:


    Vision is important. You want to make sure you keep a Control Ward near your lane to spot out enemies moving toward your lane so that you can fall back if you're too pushed up, and keep your trinket wards out as well. You can be quite easily ganked, especially when you're inexperienced, because your mobility is only able to take you into enemy units.

    Focus on farming. Until you get comfortable with Yasuo, the best plan is to play safe and prioritize farm over kills. If your jungler comes in or another laner roams up and you think a play can be made, go for it. If the enemy shoves you under tower and stays overextended, push them off and get aggressive. Playing passively and focusing on CS and not overextending will keep you from feeding in the early game, while giving you enough gold to stay relevant moving into mid game, where you'll have the support of your team. Remember that 15 minions is roughly equal to one kill. So if you stay 20CS ahead of the enemy and don't die, you'll be ahead. If you are 20CS ahead and die once, you'll still be slightly ahead. Your goal should be at least 70CS at 10mins.

    Hold your Wind Wall for important abilities. Even if you fall behind, you can still be a huge asset for your team. You have a form of Crowd Control that isn't broken by Cleanse and your Wind Wall can save your team from fight winning ultimates such as Miss Fortune's Bullet Time or Ashe's Enchanted Crystal Arrow. You need to make sure you have your Wind Wall available if fighting champions with abilities like that.

    You are NOT a hard engage. You can set up engages by landing a good tornado from your third Steel Tempest, and your Last Breath is a great follow-up to a hard engage, but you are not a tank and you should not hard engage and put yourself in a bad position. 1v1 you can engage, of course, but in team fights you should be a secondary engage or a setup.

    I hope this is helpful for you. Good luck and have fun. And always remember that if your team is flaming you too hard for learning someone new, press enter and type "/mute all" so your morale isn't affected.

    I left a few tips here, but keep in mind that Yasuo is a really challenging champion to master. It's going to take a lot of practice to become proficient, so don't be discouraged if you're having a rough time right away.

    Generally I'd recommend playing other champions while you're learning the game so you have less complex stuff to focus on, but if you really want to learn Yasuo then go for it. It's just going to take a lot of time.

    Yasuo's runes are: Precision ---> Press the Attack -> Triumph or Overheal -> Alarcity -> Coup de Grace ---> Resolve (cuz Yasuo is tanky) -> Condition -> Second Wind

    He's good on mid and top lane. At start, take Doran's Blade or Shield and Healing Potion. At lvl 1, take Steel Tempest (Q) and farm with it, at lvl 2, take Sweeping Blade (E) and now u can do EQ to make more farms, for dmg and trade too! At lvl 3, pick Wind Wall (W) for escaping from some hard situations. Wind wall can block enemy and minion's attack, but can't turret's attack! You now are going to maximize your Q or E. Last ability what you will maximize at lvl 18 is your W.

    Yasuo has doubled critical chance (2x CRIT chance), so you will take Phanton Dancer or Stattik Shiv for AS (Attack Speed) and 60% CRIT Chance. Phanton Dancer is better choice than Stattik **** because Phanton Dancer gives more AS than this Shiv, more MS (Mobility Speed), CDR (Cooldown Reduction) on Q and reducing enemy's Damag too! Second item will be Infinity Edge for +40% CRIT, also give you 50% more CRIT Damage (more damage from CRITs). 3rd item will be Berserker's Greaver, Ninja Tabi or Mercury's Treads (boots). Theese items are CORE.
    I'm using this full build: Phanton Dancer, Infinity Edge, Berserker's Greaves, Bloodthirster (BT), Trinity Force (TriForce) and Frozen Mallet. Items like: Death Dance, Ravenous Hydra, Blade of the Ruined King, Maw of Malmortius, Mercurial Scimitar, Guinsoo's Rageblade, Guardian Angel, Duskblade of Draktharr, Youmuu's Ghostblade, Wit's End... are good for him!

    * EQ + Att + R
    When you get Tornado on Q, use EQ basic combo. Before ur ult (R), do one basic attack for extra bonus damage
    * Q + EQ + R
    This for multiple damage. When u have Tornado on Q, throw on them and do EQ and use R
    * EQ + Flash (this a important for begginers, and dis is called "Beyblade")
    Finally, baiting combo is:
    * EQ + Att + R + Att + Q + Att
    * Q + EQ + R + Att + Q + Att

    If u want to understand any champ, u must "meet" him! Watch some players how are playing too.
