Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Always take it there is no reason not to, it's a good escape when there is nothing to dash through and also allows for the Beyblade

12.pngNow ever since the nerf I have been using it on and off. The only time you would want to take this is if you're against someone who can stomp you hard and then push it IE: Darius, Illaoi, Irelia etc...

3.pngHere's a counterpart to tp if you are against someone with high burst or high attack speed like jax or olaf, for the high burst this can be taken against Illaoi Irelia and many others


14.pngIgnite Take this against someone who can heal for the grievous wounds so, Olaf, Nasus, Aatrox, Vlad maybe even Maokai. Also take this if you are confident you can get an early kill to snowball

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Normally.PNGSo Fervor of Battle is what i usually take which is the reason for the 29% attack speed runes. Take this against anyone you will be in a somewhat long fight where you can stack it up

Vs poke.PNGAgainst poke champions this mastery is very nice if you're not to confident or good against top laners that will poke you so Kayle, Rumble, Quinn, Kennen, and God Forbid you have to fight Teemo

vs Tanks.PNGGrasp now this one is situational you will take this or warlord's, but i tend to take grasp over warlords in matchups where i will lose it so any time i poke with long range q or e-q auto i get a nice heal and damage off so Darius, Teemo, Shen, etc...

Alright first for leveling up skills Never max Q, E has overall more damage and lowers the recast on the same target so it's much more efficient.
 Also if the jungler and your laner don't have skill shots feel free take your e at level 3 and maybe even 4 if you're confident

yasuopassive.pngWay of the Wanderer your passive gives you double critical strike making it easy for Yasuo to get high damage in a low amount of time. This also causes flow, Flow is generated by walking around and at max flow Yasuo will store it and it causes Yasuo to get a shield when next hit by an enemy champion Minions and towers do not proc this. Also your passive causes critical strikes to do 10% less damage and 25% less on your q

yasuoQ.pngSteel Tempest is a short ranged skill shot that applies on hit affects as said it has a 25% reduced damage on critical strikes. Yasuo's Q applies on hit affects, can critically strike and when used with his e he will do a spin around the area after dashing causing his q to be AOE also once Yasuo hits his q on enemies twice in a row (within the time) his 3rd Q becomes a knockup. This spell is not affected by CDR and buying attack speed will lower the cool down to the lowest of 66% or 1.33 seconds

yasuoW.pngWind Wall will block all projectiles when used in there direction PROJECTILES so no xerath q Vel'koz auto thresh auto and Azir auto's, But it will block Ashe, Draven, Ezreal, and Jinx's ults and auto's

yasuoE.pngSweeping Blade is a dash that when used with his q will cause him to dash towards an enemy and activate his q but his q will be an small AOE instead of a skill shot, use that to get a guaranteed knock-up or clearing waves late game. Sweeping Blade is a FIXED distance meaning no matter where casted Yasuo will go a set distance if you are closer you may over shoot your e-q or use it to get over walls but when farther you will land on them if casted at max range

yasuoR.pngLast Breath so your ultimate may be weird to new players, it can not be casted unless somebody is knocked-up. Now this spell has some tricks you can knock-up auto ult if you're fast enough, you can knock-up e ult, you can just ult. This spell keeps your target suspended in the air for an extra second and Yasuo will gain 50% armor pen to his ulted targets keep in mind this CAN be Qss'd. You can also do the Airblade trick which is nice, i will talk about that later. Also your ult consumes all stacks of your q

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Start with doran's normally unless you are against like jax or darius also against panth cloth armor 4 pots is good

Core Items

    The 2 slots will be covered in the situational but this is normally the way to go
    If your team needs a tank this should do the damage from tri force is good enough when especially with your ult and mallet makes sure they don't escape

Situational Items

    So Ninja tabi is much better against Darius, Fiora, Olaf and Jax while Merc treads are better vs Vlad, Maokai, and ryze i do go merc against ad if they have alot of cc
    If against an ahead Vlad, Ryze, or mid fed a bursty Ap like fizz or Viktor
    Now i started using this as a just joke pick but it's not seeming to be to bad for the tank build since you get armor pen and AD plus the MS is nice
    If against a fed adc who has crit
    If you just need armor randuins is nice and so is sunfire but it's your preference
    obviously depending whether they have healing or not but an early last whisper is nice if they go heavy armor very early
    if you feel you're getting bursted to hard REMEMBER Maw and sterak's have the same unique passive so they DON"T STACK
    This works you can do it if you're very ahead but i personally prefer PD because of the damage reduction

VS

Aatrox

Easy

Aatrox can't do much if you play this right just always poke him and e-q knock-up auto him and get out before he can heal (if you can) always try to block his e poke

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

This match-up isn't to hard it's honestly just annoying poke him down and stop him from farming which will cut his gold and his healing passive try to get a jungle gank

VS

Darius

Hard

Darius is the biggest pain on the planet for Yasuo you can't fight him or go e-q because he will end up pulling you mid dash and out trade you and his slow is very brutal. try to just farm and poke with your 3rd q ask your jungler for help early to stop his snowball

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

Just get nice trade's early with your e-q and knock up make sure to play around minions if there are no minions dance around your WW

VS

Fiora

Medium

Now Fiora has some mobility herself so be careful early on try to fight her but try to deny her passive damage and healing your shield early will be a pain for her to take out if you do this

VS

Gangplank

Medium

This match-up is much like the Mundo one just block his q but dance around his minions to avoid getting hit by his e

VS

Garen

Easy

Simple just poke him and go for good trades get a hex-drinker for his ult and if you want take exhaust

VS

Gnar

Medium

This one is very easy try to bully and harass him with wind wall and stop his cs but make sure not to stay near a while at 6 when he goes mega and don't underestimate the healing or cc he get's because it does hurt alot

VS

Illaoi

Medium

Illaoiis very annoying but all you have to do is dodge her tentacles and q with your e or just a sidestep make sure not to get hit by her q tentacle on you and your spirit because that will just 2 shot you

VS

Irelia

Hard

This champion i personally ban i don't care for her she's just annoying but the most you can do is just tower hug and farm because if she dives you and her minions are there you have so much outplay potential under your turret

VS

Jayce

Easy

Not much too it kite his melee form and just block his e-q in cannon and his auto's

VS

Kayle

Medium

This match-up isn't hard as it is annoying because she can auto through the Wind Wall always just block her q and poke her she should be squishy early so if you can rush level 2 first you should be set

VS

Kennen

Easy

This match-up he can't do that much if he tries to all in with ult dash away or WW his q before you get stunned and he is also very squishy so try to harass him with an early level 2

VS

Lissandra

Medium

Just sit back and farm block her harass and be prepared when you dash on her she will either e away which you can block with Wind Wall or she will just root you either way if you want to go in make sure passive and WW are up

VS

Malphite

Easy

Easy honestly his e reduces attack speed which sucks but he doesn't have too much damage if you don't tank the minion wave

Also maybe consider an early Last Whisper

VS

Nasus

Medium

This can go one of 2 ways you can snowball off him or he will destroy you like the malphite he can slow your attack speed but he can now slow your move speed aswell with his target locked w

Consider the early last whisper as well for this match-up

VS

Pantheon

Hard

Just Block his poke stay back and farm start Cloth armor 4 pots or doran's shield your choice and get a gank from your jungler you can't do much to him early

VS

Poppy

Medium

Poppy has her w to counter your dash so try to knock her up run away then dash once out of the w knock-up her q will slow you so avoid that at all costs and keep in mind that if she channels her ult you can Wind Wall but not when she does it instantly to knock you up not send you flying

VS

Renekton

Hard

Be so careful about this lane he can DOUBLE DASH remember that so space yourself well he will get so ahead if he gets an early kill so don't give him one and you should just out scale him later

VS

Riven

Medium

Riven's triple q is your only threat aside from her stun so when she's mid knock-up q use your 3rd knock-up q to stop it mid air You can get a free auto in there 


consider the dorans shield start

VS

Shen

Medium

Don't try to fight him unless you are very confident or your jungler is here he can kill you very easily because of his taunt Block and shield and the fact he's a tank


Maybe get a Last Whisper Early

VS

Singed

Easy

Not your worst match-up you can deal with him just don't let him flip you and you should be very set in lane try to get your jungler gank him if he tries to proxy farm your lane 

VS

Sion

Medium

Get rid of his w shield immediately if you can kill it fast you do well avoid his knock-up and armor reduction your ult helps you a lot in this lane same with your e

VS

Teemo

Hard

I personally don't care for this lane because even if you block his q which now you get to do damage he has his speed boost and over time damage with his ult slow not to mention his q is target locked


Buy an early hex-drinker and get a gank from your jungler if you do that and get a kill you should be set for the rest of the lane.

VS

Tryndamere

Hard

You just can't do anything he outrades you he can catch up to you with e and his slow so just get early ganks


Start cloth armor 4 pots if you feel like you need to and get a doran's Shield

VS

Urgot

Easy

Yes i have fought urgot top this lane is easy if you block his e and dance around your minions you can damage through his shield very fast

VS

Vladimir

Medium

This is just annoying i personally start dorans blade block his e and auto's when can and trade when you can try to avoid getting q'd because it heals him and hurts you.


The only bad part is the fact that him building zhonya's gives him alot of ap armor and now he gets 2 untargetables

VS

Wukong

Medium

Try to put a pink in the top middle bush and fight around it he shouldn't out damage you too hard unless you let him

VS

Yorick

Medium

I have only played this match-up about once maybe so i don't know it to well but i personally abused his ghouls and used them as free dashes and another stack on e damage and a q stack

Me Back to Top

Hey I know i'm Gold 2 and i know that 210k points isn't that much but i love Yasuo and just felt that some people are playing him wrong mainly in my ranking I know i'm not the best Yasuo but hopefully this helped

Tips and Tricks Back to Top

Now as i talked about the BeyBlade and the Airblade they are 2 tricks you can do with your q


The Beyblade is when you E-Q (with knock-up q) then flash to a target location before the q goes off causing to knock-up Q where you flashed


The Air blade is when you have 1.33 attack speed you can knock-up q from a range e-q minions or another champion as you ult and your aoe q will hit the target AFTER you ult so your ult does not consume your knock-up stacks making it easy to stack another tornado and some good extra damage

Here are 2 videos of Arkadata an amazing Yasuo player show both of these techniques Skip to :20 seconds to see them


Ending Back to Top

Well hopefully this helped and i've given anybody insight on yasuo match-ups and builds HF :D
