Summoner Spells Back to Top

When I'm against a target with no escape and i know i will beat such as Varus,110.png or Ziggs,115.png I tend to run Ignite14.png because it will guarantee a kill if used correctly. 

I run TP (Teleport)12.png if Im sometimes duo queued with a friend because it allows more potential to make plays and help other lanes snowball32.png of your damage. I tend to stick with these summoners but you may feel free to change it up if you wish. Since Ghost6.png has been buffed it has 

been used on many more champions and i feel it is pretty decent on Yasuo 

since if you're playing mid lane it allows you to get to the lane faster.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

I run Oppressor over Bounty Hunter because his knock up applies to it doing a increased 2.5 damage. 
Warlords Bloodlust for more sustain- been nerfed, but not too much.

For top lane run 12/018 with Grasp Of The Undying as your keystone.


Please Note, these are the basic masteries. If you would like to see more in depth ones, click this link. It will show you the "New" 4 builds, masteries, and runes.          https://youtu.be/sJoq3JVNT0I

Tips While Laning Back to Top

When you're about to go in for poke make sure your shield, Way Of The Wandereryasuopassive.png is up so you don't take as much damage. You should E through a minion and do a Q mid E then E out doing some good damage while your shield absorbs the damage you took.

 If allin-ing you should keep your third QyasuoQ.png ready and EyasuoE.png through a unit and QyasuoQ.png mid EyasuoE.png, folllow up with your RyasuoR.png and set off the ignite with some more Q's. Spam Q as much as possible on minions or the enemy laner to get the poke off.

E builds up more damage the more you use it on minions and finaly e on an opponent to deal massive damage.

On your 3rd Q, press W and quickly cast Q to do an animation cancel.

When you are about to go in for some poke or an all in you can get your third Q ready and mid e press flash so the opponent doesnt have a good escape and Q to get the knock up off followed in with the ULTIMATE!!

If you're ready for this highly advanced tip, prepare to be blown away!yasuoW.png Please note: You need a relatively low Q cooldown to perform this. While you have your third Q ready, cast it on the enemy and then E on the minion and mid E press Q followed in by the ultimate with one more Q. This will allow you to have your third Q up much faster for some more poke while dealing a ton of more damage!

YOU CAN USE YOUR W FOR VISION TO E OVER WALLS SUCH AS RAPTOR CAMP, WOLF CAMP, GROMP ETC. He can ult off of any displacement such as a Thresh hook, not only knock ups. 

Tips With Building Back to Top

Your QyasuoQ.png CD doesn't get reduced with CDR (cool down reduction) but with AS (attack speed). At level 18 you have a base of 54% AS so all you need to do is build 56% attack speed to reach full CD at level 18.

Your EyasuoE.png has a flat CD so its not reduced by anything. 

Your passive makes it so you have double crit chance so if you have 50% crit chance you will have 100%.
Your QyasuoQ.png crits but to make up for that the QyasuoQ.png does 25% less crit damage and your AA (auto attacks) do 10% less crit damage.

Build 50% crit, 54% AS, rest raw damage and a little bit of tankiness. (mercuial skimatar3139.png if needed)

Gameplay Back to Top

Yasuo157.png has a very strong early game and you must take advantage of that. After early/mid game he starts to fall off so he doesnt scale well into late game. Always take this into consideration or you won't be doing as well as you can with him! Abuse your QyasuoQ.png and EyasuoE.png keys because they do the most damage and have such a small CD. 

He works well with champions that have knock ups 
like Malphite54.png, Alistar12.png, Braum201.png, and more 

because he can ult off of it. 
When your opponent is pushed up in lane and they're knocked up ULT, it gives you 50% armor shred letting you do way more damage to them. Use your W when you can tell
your opponent is going in for a all in or some really big poke like a Ahri103.png Charmahriseduce.png.

Counter Tips To Yasuo ;( Back to Top

You don't have to kill him, he will fall off without having CS so just keep him off of that. Also, hes weak when he uses his 3rd Q so thats when you should go in of course make sure the shield is down first. His Shield lasts for 2 seconds. Don't get hit by his E while he is building it up on minions, it will deal massive damage. Pop his W and then CC him so he cant block it. Good way to get him in the Graves! If you really wanna reck this Yasuo, or any champion in general in hte mid lane, use Fizz or Ekko. Top lane, Poppy can destroy him and trundle can as well. I mean, fine. You Can go Renekton too. Two more good picks against him mid lane is Orianna and Xerath. Cant Block any of that stuff. If you want to use a spell to counter Yasuo use exhaust. But this will be useless if there are minions around.
