  • Flash is mandatory, a free escape or gap closer is always nice.

    3.png
  • Exhaust is for match ups against champions who have high all in potential (238_64.png92_64.png , 55_64.png and etc) or for champions that have 1 main ability to do their damage e.g 134_64.png.

     14.png
  • Ignite is basically for any lane Yasuo can win, or punish, their are exceptions to where ignite is required for certain champions (50_64.png8_64.png ).

  • This page gives Yasuo massive sustain (13 per 5 without Dorans Shield and 19 per 5 with it).

  • You could swap battering blows and warlords bloodlust for swiftness and grasp of the undying against melee match ups and CC teams.

  • In my opinion the only two pages worth running on Yasuo as of patch 6.5 (even on 6.6 nothing changes)

  • Run warlords bloodlust into every match up unless my notes say other wise.

  • The reasoning for starting E (sweeping blade) is for the all in potential that you have once you reach level 2, and it is better than Q start especially against ranged match ups (101_64.png115_64.png 61_64.png and etc). There is a good reasoning for skilling E at levels 4 and 5 as it provides more damage than Q at that particular stage of the game, as you wont be able to get multiple Q's on your opponent at that stage of the game, however you would be able to get 2 stacks of your Q (for the tornado) then dash twice (50% increased damage on your dash) then do the combination of E > Q giving you a guaranteed knock-up and you would be able to dash your way out before your target could retaliate. 

  • The rest of the skilling is self explanatory, skilling wind-wall is only worth it if you arn't losing anything so it would be, of course, better to skill your Q for the increased DPS. ALWAYS skill your ultimate at levels 6-11 and 16.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    The standard start in basically any lane, you can't go wrong with this start.
    What I start almost everytime.
    If you're against a champ like Ziggs or Xerath and you need to dodge skill shots.
    If you are rushing hexdrinker.

Core Items

    These items are amazing as they give you massive surivivability as well as solid dps and plenty of movement speed. Best when you are toplane, or when your a bruiser. (Tri,PD,BT)
    When you're midlane this is amazing as it gives you a lot of damage and tank shredding threat. (Shiv,IE,Botrk)
    This Build gives you a lot of strength if you go top lane as well as some defense. (Tri,IE,Maw,Botrk)
    A good core, provides you with the desired minimum amount of attack speed as well as massive teamfighting potential. stay alive while still doing damage, a lot actually 8). (Shiv, Tri,BT)

Situational Items

    Heavy CC in which you need to shorten the duration of the CC.
    Attack damage Midlaner or their adc is huge and their midlaner doesn't have much cc.
    Zed or CC Jesus.
    Gives you picking potential aswell as survivability with the movement speed and stats.
    They have crits everywhere and you need help, this will help plenty!
    This + Maw > Fizz (this is against hard burst champions and AD assassins, talon Kha'zix, Rengar Master Yi etc)
    Annie, Leblanc, Fizz Lissandra, this will save you from massive ap burst and a really good passive once you hit low levels for more damage with AS and LS boosts.
    This if you're going a super bruiser build, the item I'm referring to being Titanic alongside an example build for it.

VS

Ahri

Easy
  • This match up is very easy after level 3, before level 3 however be cautious of a level 2 cheese gank from their jungler, as they could wait for Ahri's level 2 then kill you easily 

  • Just farm and if she gets in range of her caster minions, E to the minion beside her, AA (auto attack), Q > E to her then dash back to your minions (ignore the final E if it will put you in towers range).


  • Remember to save wind wall for when she uses multiple abilities not just 1, you can tell when Ahri does a little twirl that she could be going for a heavy trade, as that signifies her using her W ability. 


  • don't trade until your windwall is back up off of cool down.

VS

Akali

Medium
  • Akali is very dependant on her Q for damage early on, every time she Q's a minion poke her with a quick E > Q combo, if she uses her Q on you however, wind wall the projectile then perform a heavy trade on her.


  • Once she hits level 6 this match up gets a little challenging, if she jumps on you, wait for her wind up animation for her Q, then quickly wind wall it and attempt too all in her, as you should be level 6 as well (Remember to buy pink wards and upgrade to sweeping lens once you hit level 9 to reveal her stealth.

VS

Anivia

Easy
  • 3.png, Just farm you outscale her with your damage being higher than hers late game if you stay alive.

  • Just Don't Feed her kills. 3156.png < this thing helps later into the game.

VS

Annie

Hard
  • Rip you Fam, just farm, a good Annie will never lose trades, run exhaust and get that 3155.png, because after 6 you will get camped by her jungler with stun tibbers and an ignite.

  • Take 3.png, if you can get ganks, take them and try to get kills elsewhere without losing too much farm, you outscale later on, just stay relevant with gold. Camp her.

  • 3340.png2043.png < buy us we will protect you!

VS

Azir

Easy
  • Rush 3087.png, take 3.png, your windwall stops his soldiers movement when he uses Q, so just do that each time he tries to drift into you and go for an all in, when he uses ult just back off as you won't beable to get to him and if you do he will lower you too much health for you to do anything.

  • Shiv Auto + Q and he is outtraded if he ever drifts into you. If he just pokes you, just walk back or windwall his soldier. don't engage on him. just farm, you and him scale evenly late game. Let him engage then cuck him.

VS

Brand

Medium
  • 3.png + 3155.png will secure this match up, windwall all his stuns and try to windwall his ultimate as well, don't get hit by his pillar, it will cuck you so hard.

  • Camp him, no escapes except 4.png, and even so hes so easy to gank, smash him please with jungler help. 

VS

Cassiopeia

Hard
  • 3.png, just farm shes hard to win against, roam if you can windwall her W/E

  • 3340.png + 2043.png

VS

Diana

Easy
  • 3.png + 3155.png, she most likely won't get armor against you, so you getting defensive items will just be so effective.

  • Don't let her land Q's, windwalling it removes a lot of her damage and mobility from her ultimate.

  • Get a lot of ganks.

VS

Fizz

Medium
  • 3.png + 3155.png > Fizz. Start E at level one and try to dodge his E while still autoing him and doing damage to him. Go grasp of the undying, windwall his shark projectile thing. Ask for ganks, Once you throw tornado, Fizz will waste E and try to all in you, that's when your jungler comes through.

  • Late game get yourself a 3156.png + 3053.png

VS

Kassadin

Medium
  • 14.png If hes good and maxes E consider a 3155.png as it does an amazing amount of damage and is crazy strong against Yasuo. Ask for ganks pre 6 as he won't have any escapes. Just trade with E > AA > Q > AA

VS

Katarina

Easy
  • 3.png = Rip potatoe confirmed, go grasp and just keep taking good trades, don't let her Q you when your passive is down via blocking it with windwall.

  • ask for counter ganks as katarina will get help from her jungler. Ward up so you and your jungler can prep for these 2v2's and make sure to ping furiously when Katarina goes to roam.

VS

Kayle

Easy
  • 3.png farming is recommended as you and her both have good late games but she can beat you early if you don't trade perfectly. A good trade would be to E > AA/Q (with tornado) AA/Q and dash back into your tower to safety and windwalling when she throws her Q.

  • Ask for ganks, even post 6 she will be easy to kill as with enough cc she will be killed very easily.

VS

Kennen

Hard
  • 3.png just farm and buy 2043.png + 3340.png + 3155.png, you won't be able to fight him, late game you can beat him with your 3156.png + 3053.png. You will most likely get camped in this match up as well.

  • Get ganks from your jungler as Kennen's only escape is the spell he will use to punish you for going for cs close to him.

VS

Lissandra

Medium
  • 3.png, Go 3046.png and 3078.png so you can stick to her when she snares you, use exhaust each time she goes for an all in and windwall her E/Q if you can.

  • 2043.png+3340.png you will get camped since she has so much cc.

  • See if you can get ganks pre 6, as post 6 2v2's against lissandra will be extremely difficult.

VS

Lulu

Easy
  • 14.png Zone her from CS constantly fight her, ask for counter ganks since you will get camped. She will never be able to out trade you past level 3 once you have windwall.

  • 2043.png+3340.png

VS

Lux

Easy
  • Lux gets cux (cucked I wanted to rhyme there) Windwall her E 14.png < Take this as it will make it even easier to punish her. dodge her Q with E and sidesteps

  • Ask for plenty ganks as lux is very immobile. 

VS

Malzahar

Hard
  • 3.png + 3155.png play passive and farm don't trade with him, his E + Baby crab will win him every trade since your melee.

  • 2043.png+3340.png you will get camped post 6 buy these if you don't want to go 0-7

VS

Morgana

Hard
  • 3.png/1.png you will get camped 2043.png + 3340.png try to just farm she can destroy you very easily if she doesn't mess up. Shes very difficult to gank as well but if she shoves up really hard its possible, just farm and get strong for late game. 

  • 3139.png/3156.png will make it so you can fight her late game.

VS

Orianna

Medium
  • 1054.png is a must in this match up, her passive will harass you and add up to a lot of damage. If she has a jungler who can use her ball very well (Zac, Rengar, Jarvan) buy 2043.png3340.png you will get camped.

  • Ask for ganks from your jungler and run 3.png to make her weak. Shes easy to gank so hopefully you two can gank her and be sucessful, if not just farm.

VS

Riven

Medium
  • 3.png  ask for ganks, Riven will play really aggressive as if she were to pick Riven mid against you, shes willing to fight you to the death since she picked it just to destroy you, she will get a lot of ganks most likely so try to 3340.png + 2043.png

  • Try to camp her so she'll tilt and farm as much as you can, this match up isn't super hard, go grasp and just farm.

VS

Syndra

Medium
  • 3.png Camp her, windwall her ult if you can, if not exhaust her, windwalling her stun will help a bunch as well. Becareful when dueling her post 6, it would be recommended to wait for your jungler and to buy an early 3155.png.

  • She is very good at following up ganks or starting up ganks so remember to buy some 2043.png + 3340.png

VS

Talon

Medium
  • 3.png Go grasp and try to just farm after 6, pre 6 however just fight him and don't get ganked, try to get ganks yourself as talon has no escapes without his ultimate.

  • post 6 when he uses E on you and you have 70% or under 3.png him as he will most likely try to all in.

  • this is when you want to buy 2043.png to beat him up and ask for ganks to still camp him.

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy
  • Ask for ganks, run 14.png and just camp him, after 6 constantly shove him into tower to prevent him from roaming or punish him if he does so. Ping each time he recalls and if he pushes a wave ping as well. He can roam with a crazy amount of speed so pinging and warding river is an excellent way to protect your team.

  • If you get camped you know what to do, as it is likely you could get camped. 2043.png + 3340.png.

VS

Veigar

Easy
  • 3.png/3155.png will make this easy, punish him and try to zone him from cs, buy 2043.png +3340.png you will get camped as he has a huge stun that will make ganking you super easy.

  • Don't be intimidated by "oh veigar infinity scales" because he may infinity scale, but he doesn't scale quickly. When you get 3156.png and or 3053.png he won't be able to kill you. See if you can get counter ganks as once veigar uses stun to try to gank you, your jungler can just murder the 2 with your help.

VS

Vel'Koz

Easy
  • 14.png Hes reletavly weak so fight him as much as you can, camp him, no escapes, dodge his E and just beat him to death. Ward as he will want help to kill you. Dodge everything with E and it will be an easy match up. You may run 3.png If you feel the need to shut him down completely in teamfights.

  • 2043.png + 3340.png

VS

Viktor

Medium
  • Camp him and ask for counter ganks, as he will get help most likely, and if both junglers don't react just farm and if he makes a mistake punish him, run 3.png.

  • Buy a 3155.png into a 3156.png and plenty of 2043.png + 3340.png.

VS

Vladimir

Medium
  • 14.png to block his healing, ask for ganks, and try to not throw nado so early, your windwall only blocks his E so keep that in mind and try to deny him from hitting an entire creep wave with his E has he will 3152.png /3145.pnga lot of health on a close duel.

  • See if you can get counter ganks because you will get camped. 2043.png + 3340.png

VS

Xerath

Medium
  • Just farm, if he over extends and hes far away from his turret you can punish him, but most of the time just farm, get 3046.png + 3078.png to kite around and dodge kills in later teamfights and duels. 

  • Ask for ganks as this guy will be pushing the lane a lot and you can follow up on a gank from a decent range with your ultimate and dashes. 2043.png + 3340.png to prepare yourself for enemy counter ganks, don't let him roam with Ult and shove into Tower. Run 14.png.

VS

Zed

Easy
  • 3.png + Grasp, this match up is pretty easy if you don't mess up and get a lot of jungle pressure. When trying to fight do not waste your tornado, instead dash into him but do not use your tornado charge. He will predict you to use it and thats when he will ult. in his ult after .25 seconds while hes untargetable throw it behind you and it will hit him. If done perfectly, you will have knocked him up and he won't even have time to 4.png to dodge it. This is when you ult and beat him to death.

  • If he does not ult, just keep autoing him untill you win the trade, do not let him land Q's and just Dash out of the fight if it gets to the point of you not being able to windwall his shurikens. So you either win a trade or kill him in a good all in.

  • Buy 2043.png3340.png as if Zed builds a lead on you, he won't need his ult to destroy you in lane or you won't even get time to pre stack your tornado. (if you are even and are both 6 and he ults you before you can stack tornado, 3.png him after one second to block as much damage as possible and fight back) since he already ulted you can try to throw a tornado and finish the kill or just back off.

VS

Ziggs

Easy
  • 14.png , same concept as the lulu matchup, fight him as much as you can and zone him, if you windwall his spells he cannot win trades and try to get ganks from your jungler onto him as he doesn't have the greatest escapes.

  • 2043.png+3340.png will make it amazing for you and your jungler to get free double kills as you can completely remove Ziggs from the fight with windwall. In a 2v2 encounter. If its just you in a 1v2 just walk out and try to not get hit by spells.

VS

Zilean

Easy
  • 14.png pre 6 try to kill him, don't get hit by his bombs and ask for ganks.

  • Post 6 however 2043.png+3340.png up and just farm, his ult will make it nearly impossible for you to kill him. You will most likely get ganked a lot as their team will want Zilean to get a lead and ramp up a lot of gold to buy ap and rack up insane amounts of utility, not getting ganked will prevent that. Ping when he goes missing as he is also a good roaming giving the laner movement speed and stunning if he lands his double bomb.

Well this is the end of my Yasuo guide, feel free to ask questions in the comments and if you want you can add my steam as I might not be online on lolking to reply to all these (My steam being "Shimi Shugi Wuff Wuff")
This guide was inspired by the amazing Yasuo player "Bryanx" who was the 9th best Yasuo in NA in season 5 (39th best in the world) I played against him once in a teambuilder and have been looking up to him ever since. Hopefully this guide has improve your mechanics on Yasuo and you can further climb divisions / tiers with him, good luck and have fun! (remember flaming does not help and responding to the flaming doesn't help either so keep that in mind guys!)
