Summoner Spells Back to Top

If you're a MID laner like me you have to decide between Ignite Exhaust and Cleanse im always recommending exhaust for new players to get used to his abilitys and get more time against burst champions like Riven,Talon,Zed.

If you feel safe with the knowledge about the abilitys you may like ignite because this spell gives you more kill pressure even if yasuo's laning phase is not the best atm.

Flash Exhaust against:7.png131.png238.png92.png91.png

Flash Cleanse against:3.png34.png69.png127.png

Flash Ignite can be used against all of them thats your decision. 
But like i said try to play with exhaust if you're learning.

Some player prefer maxing q because of the higher dmg amount while building AD.

I prefer maxing e because most players will rush armor against you and this spell is dealing magical dmg only.
E is probably the most important ability for a Yasuo player because this ability decide between life and death.
You can use this right outplay a whole team and get away or kill them or you can fail dash get caught and you're the one who is dead.
Maxing E means you will be able to dash faster trough the same enemy that means that you will be able to get the bonus while dashing trough minions or enemys and dash more often on people you want to harass.

How to knockup right:
You shouldnt risk a to miss a knockup while standing still and using q try to combine your q with your e to get a safer knockup, if you know that your enemy has his flash up try to e on him and not to q just wait and see if he will flash away most of the players will panic flash after you dashed on them. 
After he flashed or used a mobility ability you can hit your q much safer and get a safe knockup - Ult.
If you knockup someone after you used your Q DO NOT ULT INSTANTLY wait as long as you can before you ult him that means your Q will have more time to get the CD back so you can Q instantly after your ult.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    I always try to start like this because of the 4.5% life steal on runes + 3% on this sword for high sustain
    You may think about this start if you play against control mages like Azir,Viktor,Anivia because this kind of matchups wont have any problems to poke you constantly

Core Items

    This is the most common looking build for yasuo. Boots for cc control trinity for 100% crit + tankyness + more dmg cause of sheen LW can be replaced with a tanky item
    Items that you could rush against tanks

Situational Items

    This items works on Yasuo but depends on your game situation

This Itembuild is for my rune site which you can see at the top of this guide.

I always try to stay at lane to get 900G go back and buy Avarice Blade and wards. 
This blade will help you to get your Items faster but be careful your stats wont grow so you could fall behind on your lane if your opponent get some AD or AP.
Static is the first item you want to rush because of this passive you have a nice chance to crit every single time which doubles your magic dmg with your e+ static.
Boots is always my second item because i want to be fast enough to move and get my shield up so if you play with Attackspeed runes you dont need the attackspeed boots and you can go for the mercurys or Ninja tabi to get some def. I always prefer Mercurys to avoid some CC.

What i try to do is getting IE next and after IE another Zeal to get the 100% crit bonus you can use Zeal later to finish your Trinity and get ready to 3 hit some ppl :).

After you got Static,IE,Trinity rush as fast as you can BT if you need some more life steal you can buy vampiric scepter before you finish your Trinity.

You will read more about this later in the "Tactics & Playstyle" content

VS

Ahri

Easy

Max your E and try to move as much as you can

Fight at minions this will help you to dash more often and get your shield faster up
If your Windwall is on CD and she engage FLASH THE CHARM! 
Basicly its not difficult she has only skillshots besides ult and W so the only thing you need to do is dashing trough minions to dodge all her abilitys and windwall her charm.

VS

Anivia

Medium

Kinda easy matchup til lvl 6 be sure to keep your windwall and not to waste it for nothing.

Anivias e deals 100% more dmg if you're frozen so dont waste your wall if she E without q or R stay away from walls so she cant catch you with her Ice wall and always try to move trough minions to keep your E dmg bonus up

VS

Annie

Hard

Most annoying matchup try to ask for ganks and clear the wave as fast as you can to clear jungle camps for extra gold.

She is extremly strong against you because her W and R dont give a FCK about your wall so basicly she will try to ULT or W on you, walk around your Wall and finish you with her Q + Ignite.
Get some MR like Mercury boots to avoid her CC maybe Hexdrinker and QSS

VS

Azir

Medium

He is kinda weak early after all his nerves. 

Use your Windwall to block his Q movement and go away from the AA range of his soldiers try to wait with your ult before he ults so you can jump over and finish him.

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

Try to dodge her poison by dashing on minions as much as you can keep your wall if she hits you with the poison and try to E trough her if she trys to ult

VS

Diana

Medium

You can harass her before lvl 6 but care about her ULT.

Try to get your Q knockup ready before you go to harass if she turns on you and land a Q you will have a big problem so time your windwall and outplay her E with a dash away from her or on minions

VS

Ekko

Medium

Harass him on lvl 1-6 with E + Q try to dash away if he gets 2 hits on you to avoid the 3rd for the bonus dmg.

Use ignite on lvl 6 before he gets to 20% HP because most of the ekko players will ult on this point. So keep an eye on his "earlier ult ekko" and a finger on your ignite button.

VS

Fizz

Medium

This matchup is "tricky" trickster you can harass him until lvl 6 because he is very weak, once he is lvl 6 try to dodge his Ult if he lands an ult on you... well this wont end well. 

You win every fight as long as you dodge his ult so try to keep your knockup ready if you need to ult fast!

VS

Katarina

Medium

Use your windwall to block her Q so she wont be able to get a dmg bonus trough her W. 

Dash away from her or on minions after she ults and knock her up to get your shield back.

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

Try to push the lane as fast as you can to get ahead on LVL and CS because after lvl 3 she can one shot you all the time your Windwall should be timed perfectly for her E or Q. 

Most of LB players are using W kinda obvious so try to dash away on Minions or on her and wall behind you to avoid the q +e 

VS

Lux

Easy

Try to dodge her E and block her Q you will have enough time to dodge away from her ult and if you time your knockup right it will be a easy lane for you

VS

Orianna

Medium

Her AA dmg is pretty hard in early game so try to CS with your Q.

You can use your e to dodge her ult if you dodge on her or dash trough minions/camps. 
DO NOT ult her if her Ult is up this will throw you back and give her the chance to turn around.

VS

Riven

Hard

Take exhaust against her and try to trade with your passive shield in early game.

No matter how good you are she will always have more AD and because she is a meele fighter you cant avoid her DMG, dont try to fight her without minions if she stuns you 1 time you could be dead. 
try to outplay her while dashing on minions and use your E on her to knock her up with Q and finish her with exhaust and your ult while she trys to ult.
A good placed windwall can safe your ass so dont use your W if she engages because it wont help you at all wait until she trys to finish you with the ult

VS

Swain

Hard

His early game harass is stronger than yours so try to wait until he gets oom and fight him on this point.

avoid his W with a good placed dash.

VS

Syndra

Medium

You can predict her engage on you if she tries to get 2x Q on the ground and pick one of them up be sure to windwall before you get stunned so she wont be able to finish you with her ult.

Dash around your windwall to get your knockup and finish her.

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

You can block everything with your windwall harass him as hard as you can in early game and try to roam if he ults somewhere.

VS

Viktor

Hard

Viktor's harass is very strong specially if he upgrades his E so be sure to move all the time and avoid his E.

NEVER ULT VIKTOR if his W is up you will get stunned after you land and he can burst you with E + Q + R in 2 Sec!

VS

Zed

Hard

You can harass zed til lvl 6 and if your map control is fine enough even after 6.

for new yasuo players i would recommend exhaust but if you feel pretty safe with yasuo take ignite, time your knockup after his ult to CC him while his deathmark is on you and block his 2-3 Q with shadows with your wall.

Gameplay and Tactics Back to Top

General 

Try to play against every single champion on your lane to get used to his abilitys, cd's and their play style.
I will show you a few early game methodes which works great against a few matchups.
You can read 100 guides but at the end you need to practise, so this is only a tipp for you guys if you want to become better at what ever you're doing start practising your stuff and keep an eye and a open mind.

Early Game against 238.png

You should start E and lasthit with your E to get the bonus magic dmg.
Be sure to get your shield up E on Zed AA him and E back trough another minion this will slow push your lane but also deal alot of dmg.
His basic attacks will destroy your shield so if you wait until he used his q/e he wont be able to deal any dmg to you but you can trade with 150-200Dmg on E + AA to him.
Try to keep your knockup ready and time his CD on his W if you harass like this on the first 3 levels you could get him rly low and maybe kill him.

Mid Game against 238.png

He will try to ult when you knockup so what you're going to do is???? AA!
get your E bonus dmg and AA him he will try to ult your knockup and one shot you so if you dash away before your knockup is gone you will trade him enough dmg without even taking some.
If he ults you dash away on minions and block his Q with your windwall after his Deathmark is gone you can turn back and fight him his Q will be on Cd and if you get your knockup fast enough you can catch him if he tries to W away.

General Playstyle with Yasuo

You always want to keep your E bonus DMG up and dash as much as you can to make it harder to land CC or skillshots on you. 
Cause of your build way you will be squishy so dont try to play the hero like other players do it in any Montages get a safe knockup or let your team knockup the carrys for you. 
Try to splitpush alot because you will have a decent amount of Attackspeed and Dmg to push tower real quick and you should be able to trade PPL 1v2 so your team can start a teamfight 4v3. 

Get items and Farm

As soon as you hit lvl 6 try to push your wave and do a JUNGLE CAMP this will be most of the time the Bird camp that means 6Cs on lane + 4 Cs on the camp thats 10 Cs in 1 wave in this time your opponent will be able to get 6 cs so if you do this over 10 min you get get ahead with like 50-100 cs and get your items much faster outlevel the enemys and start carrying the game.

Maxing E for max dash dmg over the bonus Magic dmg:
