Expert Yasuo mid lane guide
Hello fellow Yasuo learners. I've been playing Yasuo since season 5 and i'm here to share my experience with you. I would recommand this champion for players who loves to play mechanical champions. I have 2m+ points on Yasuo and i'm maintaining a 60%+ wr on him ever since.

This depends mostly on the matchup, but usually this is the best one against mages. Going Conqueror is good pick since you don't need the exta attack speed from Lethal Tempo since Alacrity and your items like Mortal Reminder, Wits End will make it just fine and you can enjoy the extra dmg which and lifesteal. Second Wind is a great choice against most mages. Bone Plating is also a good pick but it's not working well with Yasuo's shield passive. Revitalize/Unflinching, both are good, it really depends on the enemy team. If they don't have hard cc, you can always go Revitalize

Usually you max Q>E>W. In matchups where you don't need Windwall you can decide to skip lvl 3 W point and get an extra on Q. You can use it for early engages with the extra damage.

Now this is where it gets interesting and casual Yasuo players fail. Core items are always Berserkers into (zeal if you prefer and feel confident in engages) Shieldbow and Infinity Edge.

Yasuo is not a solo carry champion like he used to be from the seasons before. Ofc you can always solo carry in lower elo if you can break the mind barrier that is holding you back. Don't concentrate to win lane, you don't have to win the 1v1, 2v1 situations. Play around your jungler, it is always the win condition. If you can get a prio on mid lane, look around, make the calls. Yasuo is in a really good position right now. Diana, Nunu, Hecarim, Kayn, Rek'Sai, Jarvan, Lee, Xin Zhao are the best to play with Yasuo, and with the current meta they are mostly in your game. The best mid/jungle combo is Yasuo-Diana right now. Diana with a Zhonyas is unstoppable if she plays around Yasuo, the rest of the team just has to follow up, end the kills.

It's not a guide of how to do an airblade, keyblade etc, you can learn them, they are not hard. The hardest part is understanding the matchups and how to play around your team, and the enemy team. I hope this guide was informative for you. Good luck in the Summoners Rift!
