How to play Yasuo


Yasuo is a mid-lane attack damage assassin. He is a melee champion and can struggle a lot in the early game when trying to walk up and last hit minions. Once you hit level 5 and get Last Breath (Ultimate), you can look to stack your Steel Tempest (1st Ability) until you get your tornado. When your tornado is ready, you can look to knock up the enemy to try and get a solo kill or you can roam around the map with his aggressive play style. Yasuo works really well with a team that has knock-ups as you can use your Last Breath on any knock-up that your team does.

Yasuo Build Breakdown.


Statikk Shiv
Infinity Edge
Blade of the Ruined King
Guardian Angel
Sterak's Gage
Gluttonous Greaves - Stasis

Yasuo does really well when you build attack damage. Yasuo also benefits a lot from critical strike chance as this stat gets doubled from Way of the Wanderer (Passive). With that in mind, Infinity Edge is a core and must-buy item with Yasuo. You get loads of attack damage and you get the critical strike chance that you need. On top of that, your critical damage will also do 30% more damage. Statikk Shiv is also a great item that gives you even more critical strike chance and it also has a great passive that can help you clear waves so you're able to roam a lot more.


For runes, we have the following:

Conqueror

Yasuo is a fighter so he wants to get in the enemies face and attack constantly. This allows him to get the stacks pretty fast with his abilities, which enables him to get more damage on the enemies.

Hunter - Vampirism

The extra physical vamp on Yasuo is awesome. It works really well when Yasuo wants to go in and auto-attack and it also works with Steel Tempest (1st Ability).

Hunter - Titan

With Yasuo, you will be in a lot of fights and get plenty of takedowns especially if you use your ultimate around your teammates. This allows Yasuo to get a bit more health with each takedown to make him that little bit extra tanky.

Sweet Tooth

A great rune for if you get low in the laning phase and need that extra bit of healing and free money.

Flash
Barrier

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get out of a situation or if you are trying to go in for the killing blow. For the 2nd spell, it's best to go for Barrier. This helps Yasuo survive especially in the early game where Yasuo is not that strong. If you want to play more aggressively and go in for kills, you can change Barrier to Ignite.

Early Game


Yasuo struggles a bit in the early game as a melee champion. Most of the time you want to stay back and wait for the enemy champion to push the minion wave under your tower. You can walk up to minions early on when you have your Way of the Wanderer (Passive) shield up and available so you don't take damage to your health. Once you hit Level 5, this is where you can potentially look for the all-in and try and kill the enemy mid-lane. If you can't find the opportunity in the mid lane, you can try to roam around the map and use your Ultimate in the side lanes.

Late Game


When you reach the mid and late game and get a few items, this is where Yasuo can start to become useful since you have quite a lot of mobility and crowd control. When you are grouped with your team and about to have a team fight, the best thing you want to do is get to their backline where you can kill the enemy carries. Always keep an eye on your teammates, especially ones that have a knock-up as you can follow it up with your Ultimate. You can also use your Wind Wall (2nd Ability) to block damage and abilities to help you and your team.

Conclusion


Overall Yasuo is a very fun and mobile champion to play with the ability to out-play the enemy team and win the fight with some insane combos and knock-ups. At times it might be difficult to play Yasuo as he has a high skill gap but once you practice him a few times you can carry.
