Yasuo Strengths & Weaknesses

Very strong when the enemy is pushed up and a new minion wave is approaching. This allows him to use his Sweeping BladeE to catch up to his enemy laner and then knock them up with his Steel TempestQ. Yasuo can quite easily set up ganks with this tactic as well.

Playing around the Wind WallW can allow him to completely dismantle ranged enemy matchups. He can run around the windwall and save himself from a lot of damage this way. Agaisnt melee champions, it is always wise to back off and maintain some distance from them.

Post-six, he becomes extremely strong due to his Ultimate Last BreathR crowd control as well the bonus armor penetration he gets upon using it. Combined with his item powerspikes, it makes him a force to be reckoned with, even if he is behind in lane.


Improper usage of his Wind WallW can get him killed in the lane. This is especially true against ranged matchups. The alternative is to back off, which allows the enemy to just zone Yasuo off the wave.

Very vulnerable to crowd control as it prevents him from casting his Sweeping BladeE for a while. He can’t cast Sweeping BladeE on the same target twice, so he can easily be caught out.

Although a power house, he is very squishy and can easily be burst down if he happens to mis-step. This can happen quite a lot if he is pushing the sidelanes, and overextends.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Yasuo is Average

After your bot lane has rotated to the mid lane, move to the side lane and start farming and gaining XP there. You can look to 1v1 any enemy who tries to stop you.

Look for frequent trades with the enemy throughout the laning phase. Getting an early kill could snowball the lane heavily in your favour.

Once you’re level 6, look to play more aggressive. Your Ultimate Last BreathR is a great skirmishing tool and you can get early kills with it.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Yasuo is Average

Flank in team fights to make getting on the enemy backline easily. Make sure you’re near your team at all times so you can get in the fight fast.

After your bot lane has moved to the mid lane, rotate to the bot side of the map or somewhere else on the map so you can continue to farm and gain XP.

As you’re good at getting picks and killing isolated targets, try to ambush and assassinate enemies who are alone or walking around Summoners Rift alone. After killing someone, make the call for a nearby objective.

Late game
25+ min
Yasuo is Strong

In the late game, look for picks on immobile or miss positioned enemies. Taking someone down in the late game can give you enough time to force a fight, siege an objective or take the Baron or Elder Dragon.

If the enemy is grouping, look to group with your team too. In team fights, continue to focus the squishiest and easiest to kill high priority targets in the backline.

Flank in team fights to make getting on the enemy backline easily. Make sure you’re near your team at all times so you can get in the fight fast, especially allies with knockups.

Power Spikes
Early game

His Wind WallW is a significant power spike in the lane. This is because of his ability to completely negate projectile-based damage.

He is a very powerful early game duelist. He should try to use his Steel TempestQ with his auto-attacks to all-in any melee enemy he is up against.

His Ultimate Last BreathR procurement is a massive power spike for him. It can allow him to extend the CC on any champion alongside getting bonus armor penetration.

Mid game

Yasuo's Wind WallW will come in quite handy during this phase of the game, especially if he tries to defend an objective.

Getting his first item will have an amplified effect on him due to how his Passive works. The increased critical strike chance will help him immensely.

His Ultimate Last BreathR will be on a very short cooldown now. He can easily use it multiple times to get picks on enemies who are farming in a side lane.

Late game

Being full build will take Yasuo to another level of power. He can duel anyone on the map and use his Ultimate Last BreathR frequently to get that bonus armor penetration.

His Sweeping BladeE should help him a lot during this phase of the game. It allows him to catch up to enemies and then Steel TempestQ them with his tornado to get a pick on them.

His Flash Sweeping BladeE on an enemy team can allow his team to win a fight quickly. His Wind WallW should also be a massive hindrance for ranged enemy carries.
