Introduction

hi everyone

THEM runes

the reason for these runes is simply one:
you NEED crit and sustain! while beeing basically useless on the first levels, using this runes you will get the sustain you need.

9 Utility
while using this set of masteries, you get a good amout of damage with a good speed to either gank or escape together with a bit of life steal

yasuo, the avenger

Ignite & Flash
this is the main spells you have to use when playing yasuo.
ignite will be your best friend on everylane.
but dont forget flash! this little bro saves many lifes, including yours!
Flash & Smite
if you go jungle its obvious why :)

THEM Items

Starting Build(s)
THEM starting items
sustainable lane
5
doran together with masteries and runes will give you all the sustain you need. POINT.

on the other hand, if you go forsustainable lane since you are really weak in early, gl bro :)
Final Build(s)
Standard Final Items
why this item set you ask me?
first, you begin with dorans to get a bit of damage(he by himself already has it all) and sustain together with the 8% life steal from runes and masteries.
the atack speed boots come from 2 things, first atk. speed is awesome, and 2nd it will get you a lower cd on your Q.
cause of his passive, static shiv is a MUST(FOR REAL) has the first item because it will proc with his Q(no more reasons needed)
get hydra next,it will proc with your Q and get all the sustain you need for well, the game...
infinit edge cause well, DUDE see its passive ;D
sure it might be a bit too late to make a last whisper at this hour of the game but dont forget, you didnt have it untill now but your passive/runes(so your crit) compensated for it :D
you already have 100% crit at this time, so well. just do the armor shreeding thingy(aka black cleaver)
last item had to be obviously, well the mighty GA(guardian angel)
and thats prety much it :)
Build Order

Situational Items

Blade of the Ruined King
some people may say this is a good item, or better a MUST HAVE item on yasuo, but its just a MEH item
sure, everyone has his own opinion.
mine is that it IS a good item, it gives atk speed, dmg, life steal and all and that OP passive and active.
you might even change it from the black cleaver or for the hydra if you prefer.
but to my eyes, the difference you get when using this item and hydra is noticeble because not only you do more dmg and get more life with hydra(your Q squales 1 by 1 with your AD) and thats prety much the best reason
Mercurial Scimitar
in case you are beeing focused hard you can always, and i repeat, ALWAYS do a mercurial, this bro over here saves a LOT of lifes from nasty ultis like malza, ryze W and all other things that can come across your mind .

ESweeping Blade
RLast Breath
your Q is and will forever be your damage not only because it squales 1 by 1 with your ad but also because you need it for ulti/ to proc with statik shiv

its so so, you play safe= you win

Early Game

you have a good early game, you can easly harass most of the champs and get away unscratched with some practice.

Mid Game

you are getting op but don't worry, you already own a LOAD of champions ^^

Late Game

this is your time to shine, you are monster like when on late game.
when well played, yasou can go 1 vs 5 kill, and go away lke a BOSS!

Teamfights

you can go on teamfights by 2 ways.
1 st way is assassin like mode.
you enter by the side with your Q already loaded, you focus apc or adc while doing that enemies are knocked which helps your team and well, you kill and run away :D
2nd: you are the one that is going to engage, you have to be carefull of CC, cause you are squishie!

Conclusion

YOU PICK YASUO??
OPONENT TEAM says GG!

leave coments so i can upgrade this ;)
cya bro's

And another thing, if you are Silver 2 dont even try to make guides, thanks.

Find this guide bad, you try way too hard to be funny instead of just writing a decent guide, for example no it's not obvious why you have to play Ignite/Flash, and your match up guide in top is just, I dont even know, if you're going to do match up guide atleast tell your viewers how to play vs champs that are popular picks, like Nasus, Renekton, Zac, Mundo, Aatrox. BTW using so much smiley faces is just annoying and ruining the guide.

TL:DR: Bad guide, needs alot to get improved, start by deleting all the smiley faces.

I've played against quite a few Rivens as yasuo and she really isnt very hard to beat. Yasuo has a similar play style to Zed to me and I find it rather easy to beat riven with either champ
