Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png- Dont be stupid this is the most used spell in the game for a reason. Its an unpredictable spell which can be used for engaging, disengaging, escaping, and juking. Its also your only escape that doesnt require an enemy
12.pngSeeing as how this is a top build and TP is used on most top laners  i feel as if this also doesnt need explaining. It got nerfed on 6.13 but still pretty much essential
14.png- Agressive spell and not great for top IMO but its a decent pick if you feel confident or your against a mundo?36.png
3.png- Ive never used it but i know it works mid in certain matches. Id bring this if you feel scared against someone who can 100-0 you like 238.png or 92.png



New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

REASONS 

Fury: Attack speed helps with dueling and Q CD

Feast: Helps sustain as his lane phase is pretty weak

Vampirism: same as above it helps with sustain

Battering blows: Helps with dueling those tanks or practically doing true damage to carries when his ult goes off

 Fervor: Makes your dueling damage insane. At level 18 it makes your autos or Q's deal an extra 118 damage Nuff said 

Wandered: Makes you go faster and the other option is ass IMO

 Assasin: You cant use the mana off of the cookies and you dont really have that many buffs. Also your in a solo lane so it helps with your split push damage

 Merciless: You dont use mana so this is your only option

 Dangerous Game: Your not in a lane so the other option is useless and it helps for those turret dives and living with 1 HP

You want to always put a point in Q first as it helps for lvl 1 csing and also great trading as it can be used for an auto attack reset

Though after that you want to max E First as it reduces the time until you can use the E on the same target again. The reason you dont wanna max Q first is because leveling both only add's 20 damage each rank EXCEPT the cool down reduction per rank on the E is higher and also allows you to clear waves better with E maxed. 

You max Wall (W) last as the cool down is high at all ranks and it doesnt help your combat and this is a duelist top build

ALSO if your against someone like darius or most bruisers top lane they dont have any projectiles so you dont have to put a point into your W until rank 7 but its risky

 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    I like boots as they give you your sheild quicker but all are good in certain situations
    First back should be able to get this at lvl 6
    Literally always make this your first item no exceptions its just too good overall on yasuo
    Against AP that can blow you up

Core Items

    Against someone who can 100-0 you like darius
    I love this against tanks like shen as it makes your dueling amazing with Phantom Dancer. As long as i survived lane i usually get this 2nd
    Good 2nd or 3rd item. Works with your Q gives move speed, armor and health!
    Risky Item only get if ahead and you want 100% crit
    Slows with your Q HP and AD good 4th or 5th Item
    Get if enemy AD is fed
    Average duelist build
    Good split push build

Situational Items

    Not my style but some like to use it instead of Infinity Edge
    I dont like it but do what you want
    Good if they have alot of auto attackers or a full ad Team
    If they have alot of CC

VS

Aatrox

Easy

Aatrox is pretty weak atm but start 1001.png or 1029.png and Pots and you should do fine.If you follow my builds it should work, you can wind wall his aatroxE.png. Max yasuoE.png as ususal

VS

Akali

Hard

Ive never faced her top but in mid its a stuggle. You can only wind wall her akalimota.png. I suggest you abuse her weak late game, grab a pink ward and a 3155.png and ask for ganks.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

This is one of the easiest lanes imo you just have to dash and dodge his abilities. He cant 1v1 you at any level in the game. Id suggest grabbing a Blade of the Ruined King to do% health

VS

Darius

Hard

You cant block any of his spells and he just out damages you at most levels. You can juke alot of his abilities with your EyasuoE.png but this is a rough lane. Build 3742.png early and ask for ganks. 12.png is a must in this lane

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

He has the potential to hurt but so do you. Build 3153.png early and either bring 14.png or grab a last whisper so you can apply grievous wounds. You can block his main damage source with yasuoW.png so use that

VS

Ekko

Medium

Tank ekkos fallen off pretty hard, he can still do alot of damage but all you have to do is dash through the waves to dodge his ekkoW.png and use yasuoW.png if his ekkoQ.png start to hurt

VS

Fiora

Medium

Dont get me wrong she can wreck you in lane as its mostly a skill match up in lane but try to make alot of small trades with the empowered yasuoE.pngand a yasuoQ.png then back off. Play this one fairly safe but you can win this lane easily

VS

Gangplank

Medium

this is a weird lane as you can abuse him pretty bad but his raisemorale.png hurt a lot especially if he has 3057.png. He can also removescurvy.png your knock up so be carefull but this lane isnt too bad

VS

Garen

Hard

You just have to yasuoE.png alot and make sure he cant hit you with his full garenbladestorm.png.Build 3153.png early and start 1001.png or 1029.png as usual and this lane should be alright. Dont be low in lane though as his garenjustice.png can excecute you at 350hp at level 6. DO NOT LET HIM GET FREE HARASS. Try doing repetitive small trades so he cant heal up from his passive

VS

Gnar

Hard

You can block everything from his Mini Gnar kit with yasuoW.png. Im putting this as a hard matchup as hes going to constantly poke you and can all in you with gnarR.png. Start 1029.png or 1054.pngto help against his AA harass. All you can do is try to all in him when hes mini gnar after 6

VS

Hecarim

Medium

Hes a bruiser and hes going to hurt. Dont take free harass from his Q's . You cant block anything from him so dont put a point in yasuoW.png until lvl7 or so. Its more of a skill matchup

VS

Illaoi

Easy

I know shes extremely strong in 6.14 but the 2 Illaoi's ive faced ive won laning phase. Your yasuoW.png blocks her most annoying spell illaoiE.png and you can dash through minions and dodge her illaoiQ.png. All i can say is if she does land illaoiE.png and uses her ultimateillaoiR.png RUN because it will hurt and you wont be able to out trade her in there 

VS

Irelia

Hard

This is a really bad lane and she can ireliaequilibriumstrike.png every time you try to trade and she'll hurt if she has 3057.png. But ive got over 100 games on Irelia in ranked this season and ive lost to yasuo.The trick is make her chase you while you dash through her and her minion waves. Late game you'll be easily able to out trade her with youryasuoR.png. Always try to block her ireliatranscendentblades.png with yasuoW.png as it takes away a huge portion of her damage 

VS

Jax

Medium

He can almost always out trade you unless you can get out of his jaxcounterstrike.png. If you can manage to do that you'll probably win trades. Remember his jaxcounterstrike.png is on a 15 or so second cool down so abuse it when he doesnt have it

VS

Jayce

Easy

You can block his entire cannon damage if you use yasuoW.png properly. Early game go in for trades when you have your sheild and try poking withyasuoQ.png. After 6 he shouldnt ever be able to beat you in a duel

VS

Kayle

Medium

This is an annoying lane. Your yasuoW.png doesnt block her kayleE.png/auto attacks as they arent projectiles and she has a heal and kayleR.png immunity which can negate you yasuoR.png damage. Be careful with this lane and build 3111.png early. You may want life steal for this match up

VS

Kennen

Medium

Surprisingly this little thunder chipmunk hurts alot. His autos are strong and his Q harass is constant. You can beat him in an all out duel but your yasuoW.pngcan only block his kennenshurikenhurlmissile1.png which can be annoying. Try not to let him get his wkennenbringthelight.png proc off

VS

Lulu

Easy

After her Q rework in 6.12 (i think) she isnt used top as much and doesnt deal asmuch damage. Dont let her poke early but you should be able to trade and come out on top almost every time!

VS

Malphite

Easy

This is easy as he doesnt have much kill pressure. Early game hes really mana hungry. The one tip i have is dont trade with him when he uses Elandslide.png as it takes a ridiculous amount of your attack speed. Build a 3153.png to wreck him in trades

VS

Maokai

Hard

Hes a really tanky character who doesnt lack in damage. Hes most likely going to abuse you all lane and you wont be able to kill him until you have atleast 3 items. If you can build some armor pen early

VS

Mordekaiser

Easy

This is a joke. Solo lane Morde is weak and you should be able to have full control of the lane. Just go in with a yasuoE.pngyasuoQ.png E+Qcombo and leave before he gets his 3rd mordekaisermaceofspades.pngQ proc

VS

Nasus

Medium

This is a really dependent lane. If the nasus is good and can stack your not going to be able to trade with him like ever. If you can abuse him early you can gain control of the lane pretty easily. Dont ever underestimate his damage though as his siphoningstrikenew.png can be deadly even if he only has 100 stacks

VS

Olaf

Hard

This guys annoying and hurts for most of the early and mid game. PLEASE BE CAREFUL OF HIS LEVEL 1 CHEESE with his Qolafaxethrowcast.png as when he picks it up the CD is reduced to 4.5 seconds. I wouldnt build armor as his olafrecklessstrike.png does true damage. After level 9 or so you should be able to trade somewhat well with him

VS

Pantheon

Hard

This lane will most likely make you want to cry. His Qpantheon_throw.png is on a 4 second cool down and doesnt cost very much mana. His passive blocks your yasuoQ.png and its just an all around bad lane. Ask for jungle help and try not to let him get that many kills off you

VS

Renekton

Hard

this is hard as early his empowered renektonpreexecute.pngW and his renektoncleave.pngQ can deal half of your health. Much like against pantheon or olaf try not to feed them as you scale alot harder and can out trade him at level 7-9. Build armor early and ask for jungle help

VS

Riven

Medium

SKILL MATCH. When you see the riven use all of her Q charges early go in for the trade as her damage will be extremely limited.Your yasuoW.pngW can block her executerivenfengshuiengine.pngR and can be the difference between a kill and killed by her. Ask for help and you can out snowball her 

VS

Rumble

Medium

Hes annoying and your WyasuoW.png only blocks his Erumblegrenade.png. Early his damage kinda hurts but after an item or two you should be able to out trade him. Try abusing him in trades early and if that fails just passively farm

VS

Ryze

Medium

I havent faced the new ryze yet as yasuo but im pretty sure your yasuoW.png blocks his spellflux.pngE and Qoverload.png. Sorry i dont have more for this but without his old Rdesperatepower.png you can easily out trade him at level 6 with RyasuoR.png

VS

Shen

Medium

New shen is interesting. He hurts alot more than he used to but i find this lane still fairly easy. The two essential items to this lane are 3046.png and 3153.png. Once you get these 2 items you shouldnt be able to loose trades. Dont ever fight in his Wshenfeint.png and he blocks your AA's

VS

Swain

Medium

Now that swains been nerfed a bunch this is easier. Your WyasuoW.png blocks his Eswaintorment.pngand swainmetamorphism.pngR. Build some Magic resist or life steal and you can survive. Don't try to fight him early as with his Q and E when your rooted with devastate your health bar

VS

Teemo

Hard

Fucking hell. His harass is constant and annoying and his E will always fucking pop your sheild with the last tick. Once you get a kill on this evil dart chucker the lane becomes easier. All i can say about him is sit back and farm safely and dont ever fight him in minions as you will do 0 damage when your blinded blindingdart.pngQ. (if you havent guessed yet i hate this guy)

VS

Trundle

Medium

You should win trades with him pretty consistently. The only real threat is dont fight him when he uses RtrundleR.png as he steals your stats and becomes very scary very quickly. Build as you usually do but make sure to include 3046.png for the 1v1 damage reduction 3153.png for the life steal and % damage and 3742.png for armor and HP 

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

Your Crits> His. Hes a low elo king please just do me the favor and when he uses his Rundyingrage.png dont keep fighting him. It happens too often i see my team fighting him when he cant die and its just aggravating 

VS

Wukong

Medium

this is a skill matchup. You can actually use his clone monkeykingdecoy.png to your advantage and dash to it using yasuoE.png. Dont let him harass you early with monkeykingdoubleattack.pngQ and monkeykingnimbus.pngE and you should be fine

VS

Zed

Medium

Depends how confident you feel. If you dont bring 3.png instead of TP but if not buy a 3053.png as your 2nd or 3rd item and he wont ever have kill pressure on you

ABOUT ME Back to Top

I used to be an irelia main but after the tri force changes shes been perma banned and frankly ive just gotten bored with her. Im currently gold 4 which isnt that grat but i decided to make the build after i honestly couldnt find any top builds that have been updated and it pissed me off. This season i dont have that much ranked experience with yasuo compared to last season but i have been using him alot in normals and my build will almost always win me lane. Im sorry if ive missed any matchups but like honestly out of my 4.5 years of playing league and being a top lane main these are the only matchups ive seen more than once a season. Please comment if you want me to try to do a a different match up and ill try thanks for reading this :D. Also IMO yasuos base skin is the best. THIS IS UPDATED FOR 6.15
