Summoner Spells Back to Top

Ignite or Exhaust?




-Ignite is often taken in the wrong situations by most yasuo casuals, you should only take it when all the following situations happen.
    1. you are against a jg who wont camp you because he is bad at ganking early like warwick.
    2. you are against some one who heals a lot mundo, swain, etc.
    3. you think you can win lane easily 

-Exhaust is a MUST for blind pick don't blind pick teleport or ignite ever. If you are not taking ignite then always take teleport.


-Teleport is always bad trust me but if you really feel like being a rebel take it into a good mach up at least and try it out but after doing it myself I would rather not take teleport

don't use this every time(I like this one the most through and I will also go in depth on every matchup)!!!


Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    vs skill shots?GET THIS
    this is VERY rare but still useful if you like giving up a bit of laning presence
    70% of the time you will get this

Core Items

    2nd item
    GET IT FIRST PLS NEVER GET PHANTOM DANCER!!!!!!!you need the aoe

Situational Items

    for split pushing(never get this with tri force because your q will not get a lower cooldown due to a cap in the q cdr also getting it with attack speed boots is bad aswell)
    defensive and the reason why spirit visage aint here is because the banshees vail is better over all but if you need more mr then i think its okay also the steraks gage is really good.
    offensive defensive options and by the way the blood thirster is a im "fed and i want a luxury item"

what NOT to do

1. when you are getting the parts of an infinity edge ALWAYS get cloak of agility over pick axe


It goes like this 1038.png>1018.png>1037.png

why? well its more cost effective due to your passive giving you double your crit chance but the bf sword is better than cloak.

VS

Ahri

Medium

skill mach up but save wind wall for charm

VS

Akali

Hard

Its winnable but one of the hardest match ups, play agressive early and don't let her get the 2nd q proc cuz that sucks over all just don't pick yas into akali. By the way PING MIA PLS IF YOU DO I FUCKIN LOVE YOU EVEN IF YOU COUNTER HER WITH ANOTHER MATCH UP PLS PING MIA.

VS

Anivia

Medium

Just wind wall her q or doge her q and wind wall e. farm well and try to get something done early if you can because she is a little more useful later on.

VS

Annie

Medium

This is probably a hard mach up but I put it medium because you can try to farm and if you constantly farm jg monsters then you will eventually have the lead how ever never go for kills on her unless you are 100% sure you can. most of the kills will come ether later or from roaming. try to not get a 3155.png but if you think you need it then get it. 

PING MIA

VS

Cassiopeia

Easy

kill her early and make sure to wind wall her cassiopeiatwinfang.png (twin fangs). Kill her fast in team fights if you can.

VS

Garen

Hard

THAT FUCKIN SILECE. yea thats literally it.

VS

Jax

Hard

Don't trade with him level 3 and up unless you have a shit on of gold also don't ever fight him when he has 3124.png and a tank item no matter how fed you are...yea its a shitty match up. However you can still team fight and try to farm up under tower.

VS

Katarina

Easy

WIND WALL HER ULT. WHAT YOU CAN DO THAT?????yea you can lol just make sure you ping mia and take advantage of her weak laning levels 1-5. 

VS

Lee Sin

Easy

lee needs to hit q so just get your wind wall also if lee is jg get wind wall level 4 or 5 to block his q.

VS

Lux

Medium

just a farming match up max q and get boots.

VS

Malzahar

Hard

Well the only way to not feed is to lane swap or have the jg camp you :/ yea it sucks. An item you can get is 3155.png which delays your build but you will most likely have to build it in order to survive his full combo.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

DONT EVER PICK THIS INTO PANTHEON. however if you do the only way to not get fucked is to get an early advantage because level 1-3 you are even.

VS

Renekton

Hard

Yasuo mostly just pokes with and backs off in order to trade. well Renekton does not let him do that because of his renektonsliceanddice.png and renektonpreexecute.png. As a matter a fact even if you could poke him his renektoncleave.png sustain would still fuck you. And if hes low and you all in he will just use hisrenektonreignofthetyrant.png. The only way to win this is with jg pressure because Renektons renektoncleave.png will always push the wave very hard. (look all his abilities counter you how fun!!!)

VS

Tahm Kench

Hard

I never won this but he is new so i only played against it two times.

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

Easy lane but ping MIA very often, I cant stress this enough. 

VS

Xerath

Medium

You cant block his q and if hes remotely smart he wont be gankable and wont let you get close. get boots and 4 hp pots and every time you go into lane get at least 3 hp pots.

VS

Xin Zhao

Hard

Unless xin had autism and gave you two kills pre level 3 don't fight him after level 3


This match up usually sucks, max q play passive and hopefully get a few ganks. In level 1 you can poke a bit.

VS

Zed

Medium

Zed mains I love you guys because this is hands down one of the most skill based mach ups for yas. At levels 1-5 yas is stronger so take advantage but remember his shadows go past the wind wall. start dorans and max e first. I don't know what elo you guys are in but if zed pushes let him, remember stronger 1-5 so if at level 1 he pushes let him it will come back to haunt him if your jg ganks and/or if you freeze the wave. also PING MIA AFTER LEVEL 6. If he targets you later on get 3140.png.zed_yasuo_face_by_walker183-d7u3cr8.jpg

general pros and cons Back to Top

pros

- a very good late game if built and played right

- useful w

- can single handedly win a team fight with a 4-5 man ult

- has integrated armor pen

- mobile 

- if you coordinate with your team and get knock ups you can win the game just because of the epic team fights

- biggest power spikes in the game

- very short ult cool down

- short cool downs in general

- a fed yas well you know...

cons

- VERY item dependant 

- wind wall can be useless in some match ups

- if he can't get a good ult the pick is not justifiable

- his mobility mostly works to go in

- easy to gank

- easy to shut down

- useless if behind

- team fights are kinda bad if no one on the team can get knock ups

- can get countered very hard

- if the enemy can lock him down with a point and click(im looking at you lissandra and vi) then you will have an extremely hard time even if your fed

- is hard to play at high elo (diamond and up)

how to dash over walls with yas Back to Top




This will be hard at first but if you practice in a custom game for 20 minutes everyday you will do it often and beware some of those cant be done on the new map. For the second vid its a montage, fast forward to 7:04.

-all the other tricks are in the other vid so enjoy



about me Back to Top

elo hell trick



well im a silver noob right now(bronze because the 10 provisional of the season :C) but I have been geting a lot better just by picking a main. bronze 4 to silver 3 in about 3 months. thats it I don't care if you pick annie as your main as long as you pick a main (this can be hard when you own a lot of champions).


what I want from this guide



Over all I want to see people arguing in the comments(productive arguments) and I want to know what you think I should add or change. Seeing other opinions about this champ makes me think about others perspective and I think that that gives room for improvement.
