League of Legends: Wild Rift will be releasing soon on iOS and Android. We’ve already covered the full roster of champions coming to the game. However, we felt like it was important to talk about the more iconic champions being ported over from League. One such champion is Yasuo, a melee carry who is known for his high skill-curve and flashy dodges.
Yasuo is played with extreme precision and is one of the most mobile champions in the game. Don’t let this fool you though, he also has one of the highest DPS rates in the game and can be very annoying to catch if you lack proper CC and disable. This is the reason he’s almost unkillable if he is played by someone who knows what they are doing.
Yasuo – Overview
Yasuo’s Dash is his most powerful ability. Sweeping Blade provides him with a lot of mobility and general outplay potential. However, never get caught using it without any reason. This means that the dash should only be used to get in, get out, dodge CC, etc. You can quickly poke an enemy when their abilities are on CD and Dash out. You also have a fantastic shield from your passive so abuse its timing to use it as much as possible.
How to Play Yasuo – Tips and Tricks
If you like to play with Yasuo, here are some tips and tricks we think you should consider:
During the laning stage, you should focus on last hitting since you are a carry. Harassing should always come second. We recommend going for greaves first and then building a static shiv. If you are against a bursty assassin, go for a phantom dancer instead of static. Your biggest power spike is definitely your infinity edge. If you are up against ranged heroes use your first ability for farming.
In the mid-game, you should be focused on farming or either pushing out mid for priority or split pushing a lane. Be careful not to over-extend as your quite weak. Always remember to choose your 1v1’s wisely because if you get caught out and die, the enemy will surely seize an objective.
We recommend going for a bloodthirster or death’s dance. Steraks is also situationally useable. However, your main focus should be around splitting to draw pressure from your team.
Remember to always stack your first ability whether that is on neutral camps or minions, try to have it stacked before you engage in a fight.
Yasuo – Abilities
Yasuo has one of the hardest skill-sets in the game and is therefore a high-risk, high-reward champion. This is mainly because all of his abilities rely on quick timings and have a specific pattern of execution to output maximum damage.
Way Of The Wanderer (Active)
Yasuo’s Critical Strike Chance is doubled. Additionally, Yasuo builds toward a shield whenever he is moving. The shield triggers when he takes damage from a champion or monster.
Yasuo thrusts forward, damaging all enemies in a line. On hit, grants a stack of Gathering Storm for a few seconds. At 2 stacks, Steel tempest fires a whirlwind that knocks Airborne. Steel Tempest is treated as a basic attack with all the same things.
Creates a moving wall that blocks all enemy projectiles for 4 seconds.
Dashes through target enemy, dealing magic damage. Each cast increases your next dash’s base Damage, up to a max amount. Cannot be re-cast on the same enemy for a few seconds. If Steel Tempest is cast while dashing, it will strike as a circle.
Blinks to an Airborne enemy champion, dealing physical damage and holding all Airborne enemies in the area in the air. Grants maximum Flow but resets all stacks of Gathering Storm. For a moderate time afterward, Yasuo’s critical strikes gain significant Bonus Armor Penetration.
This concludes our guide on how you can play Yasuo in Wild Rift. Stay tuned for more guides on all the champions available in the game. In the meanwhile, check these articles out.
