Yasuo is a champion in League of Legends.[1]

Abilities

Edit

Way of the Wanderer

Way of the Wanderer.png

Innate - Intent: Yasuo's Critical strike chance icon.png total critical strike chance is multiplied by 2.5 from all other sources, but his Critical strike icon.png critical strikes deal only「 (57.5% + 31.5% 31.5%) AD bonus physical damage. 」「 90% of the normal Critical strike damage icon.png critical strike damage. 」Additionally,「 every 1% critical strike chance in excess of 100% is converted into 0.4 bonus AD. 」「 every 50% critical strike chance in excess of 100% is converted into 20 bonus AD. 」

Innate - Resolve: Yasuo generates Flow resource.png Flow for every 59 / 52.5 / 46 (based on level) units he travels by any means. At「 100 stacks 」「 5900 / 5250 / 4600 (based on level) units traveled 」and upon taking damage from an enemy Champion icon.png champion or Monster icon.png monster, Yasuo consumes all Flow resource.png Flow to Hybrid resistances icon.png shield himself for 100 − 475 (based on level) for up to 1 second.

Info
  • Yasuo is able to reach 100% critical strike chance with Way of the Wanderer's multiplier after obtaining a total of Critical strike chance icon.png 40% critical strike chance.
  • Way of the Wanderer will multiply Yasuo's Critical strike chance icon.png critical strike chance after Guinsoo's Rageblade's Guinsoo's Rageblade's Wrath is calculated.
  • Yasuo's Critical strike icon.png critical strikes deal damage equal to 151.75% AD, and 189% AD with Infinity Edge Infinity Edge. This is 13.25% less than the standard 175% and 21% less than the standard 210% with Infinity Edge Infinity Edge.

Tips & Tricks
  • Taking into account Yasuo's 345 base movement speed and assuming he's constantly moving, it will take 17.1 / 15.22 / 13.33 (based on level) seconds to generate 100 Flow resource.png Flow stacks.
    • Taking into account the 45 bonus movement speed that most Tier 2 boots grant (resulting in 390 total movement speed), it will take 15.13 / 13.46 / 11.79 (based on level) seconds to generate 100 Flow resource.png Flow stacks.

Edit

Steel Tempest

Steel Tempest.png

Active: Yasuo thrusts his sword in a line in the target direction that deals physical damage to enemies hit and applies On-hit icon.png on-hit and Pix, Faerie Companion.png on-attack effects at 100% effectiveness to the first enemy hit. Steel Tempest's damage can Critical strike icon.png critically strike for「 (47% + 29.4% 29.4%) AD bonus physical damage. 」「 84% of the Critical strike damage icon.png critical damage champions usually have. 」

Physical Damage:
20 / 45 / 70 / 95 / 120 (+ 105% AD)
Steel Tempest 2.png

If this hits at least one enemy, Yasuo generates a stack of Gathering Storm for 6 seconds, which refreshes on subsequent hits. At 2 stacks, the next Steel Tempest consumes them all to become empowered with a new effect.

Steel Tempest 3.png

Gathering Storm Bonus: Yasuo unleashes a whirlwind in the target direction that deals the same damage to enemies hit and Airborne icon.png knocks them up for 0.75 seconds, or 0.9 seconds in combination with Sweeping Blade Sweeping Blade.

Steel Tempest's thrust is Silence icon.png interrupted if Yasuo is affected by Disarm icon.png disarming crowd control during the cast time, but its cooldown is Cooldown reduction icon.png reset to 0.1 seconds.

Casting Steel Tempest during Sweeping Blade Sweeping Blade will instead affect enemies around Yasuo at the end of the dash, or doing so immediately at his landing location after Flash.png blinking while ending the dash prematurely.

Casting Sweeping Blade Sweeping Blade when Steel Tempest's remaining cooldown is less than 0.5 seconds resets this remaining cooldown to allow casting it in combination, but adds the refunded time to the cooldown of that cast. If Yasuo becomes unable to cast abilities during the dash after buffering, Steel Tempest will not cast, but will still go on cooldown.(bug)

Info
  • The one Gathering Storm stack is named Steel Wind Rising.
  • The whirlwind from consuming stacks of Gathering Storm can strike targets whose center is behind Yasuo, unlike most missiles.
  • The whirlwind is not released when cast during Sweeping Blade Sweeping Blade, but instead Airborne icon.png knocks up all enemies hit around Yasuo at the end of the dash for the same duration.
  • Steel Tempest applies Basic Attack.png basic damage to the first (closest) enemy hit and Death Lotus.png area damage to secondary enemies:
    • Steel Tempest will apply On-hit icon.png on-hit effects to the first target hit, but will not do so to the secondary ones.
    • Steel Tempest will not apply spell effects to the first target hit, but will do so to the secondary ones.
    • Spell vamp icon.png Spell vamp will only grant Heal power icon.png healing from the damage dealt to secondary targets, and healing is reduced to 33% effectiveness, accordingly.
    • Life steal icon.png Life steal will heal based on the damage dealt to the first target hit.
  • The whirlwind is a missile and can therefore be Projectile.png intercepted.
  • Steel Tempest will only draw minion aggro if the first target is a champion.
  • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the end of the cast time.
  • Each parry has different interactions with this ability, whether it's the first target of Steel Tempest or the secondary one. In either case Yasuo still gains a stack of Gathering Storm and his whirlwind knock-up cannot be negated by parries:
    • Counter Strike.png Dodge: both first target and secondary target do not take damage.
    • Spirit's Refuge.png Block: first target does not take damage, secondary target does take damage.
    • Blind icon.png Blind: both first target and secondary target do take damage.
  • Steel Tempest rolls its Critical strike icon.png critical strikes individually against each enemy hit.
  • Casting Last Breath Last Breath during Steel Tempest will buffer it to cast after the cast time has completed.
    • However, if Last Breath Last Breath is used on a target affected by an Airborne icon.png airborne source that is not Yasuo, it is cast immediately due to Steel Tempest's cast time ending prematurely. Steel Tempest will still cast in this case.
  • If Steel Tempest is buffered during Sweeping Blade and Yasuo uses Recall Recall, Teleport Teleport or Hextech Rocketbelt Hextech Rocketbelt, Steel Tempest will go on cooldown without casting. In Protobelt's case Yasuo will also need to cast a movement command after it, else Steel Tempest will still trigger.
  • Spell Shield.png Spell shield does not prevent a stack of Gathering Storm from being gained.
  • While at two stacks, a range indicator will be shown for the effective range of the whirlwind.

Tips & Tricks
  • Casting Last Breath Last Breath while buffering Steel Tempest during Sweeping Blade Sweeping Blade will also trigger the damage after the blink, thus avoiding the Gathering Storm stack reset.

Edit

Wind Wall

Wind Wall.png

Active: Yasuo raises a wall of wind that travels in the target direction over 0.25 seconds. It then drifts another 50 units over 3.75 seconds, blocking all hostile non-Turret icon.png turret Projectile.png projectiles that hit it and granting Sight icon.png sight of its surroundings.

Wall Width:
320 / 390 / 460 / 530 / 600

Info
  • Wind Wall grants Sight icon.png sight in a small static area in front of the cast location.
  • Wind Wall starts blocking projectiles on-cast (despite not being fully formed).
  • Wind Wall travels via a missile, and thus stops upon colliding with an enemy Wind Wall.

Edit

Sweeping Blade

Sweeping Blade.png

Active: Yasuo Dash.png dashes a fixed distance in the direction of the target enemy, and upon colliding with them, he deals them magic damage, becomes Ghost.png ghosted for 2 seconds, and generates a stack of Ride the Wind for 5 seconds, which refreshes on subsequent hits and stacks up to 2 times.

Magic Damage:
60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 (+ 20% bonus AD) (+ 60% AP)

Ride the Wind: For each stack, Sweeping Blade's base damage is increased by 25%, up to a 50% increase.

Bonus Damage:
15 / 17.5 / 20 / 22.5 / 25
Maximum Bonus Damage:
30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50
Total Damage:
90 / 105 / 120 / 135 / 150 (+ 20% bonus AD) (+ 60% AP)

Sweeping Blade can be cast on the same target only once every few seconds.

Yasuo will be Knockdown icon.png knocked down by any Stun icon.png immobilizing or Silence icon.png polymorphing crowd control, excluding Sleep icon.png sleep(bug), during Sweeping Blade.

Last Breath Last Breath can be cast during the dash. If Steel Tempest Steel Tempest has been buffered, Wind Wall Wind Wall may also be cast during it. (bug)

Info
  • The on-target cooldown will be applied upon starting the dash.
  • Sweeping Blade's dash speed is affected by Movement speed icon.png movement speed.
  • Sweeping Blade will generate 7.5 Flow resource.png Flow stacks per cast that travels the maximum distance.
  • Yasuo can use Sweeping Blade's fixed dash distance to cross walls both before and after hitting his target (provided his proximity to the wall and/or target allows it).
  • After Sweeping Blade, Yasuo becomes Ghost.png ghosted for a moment to prevent situations where he would face extreme cases of body block.

Edit

Last Breath

Last Breath.png

Active: Yasuo Flash.png blinks to the other side of a Sight icon.png visible Airborne icon.png airborne enemy champion nearest to the cursor, instantly generating maximum Flow resource.png Flow while resetting Gathering Storm Gathering Storm stacks.

Upon arrival, he Airborne icon.png knocks up all nearby Airborne icon.png airborne enemy champions for 1 second, True Sight icon.png revealing them and slashing them with his sword over the duration, dealing physical damage thereafter. Surrounding enemy champions that become Airborne icon.png airborne during this time will also be affected by Last Breath through the remaining duration.

Physical Damage:
200 / 350 / 500 (+ 150% bonus AD)

For the next 15 seconds, Yasuo's Critical strike icon.png critical strikes gain Armor penetration icon.png 50% bonus-armor penetration.

A nearby Airborne icon.png airborne enemy champion is required to cast this ability. If Yasuo would blink inside the Range icon.png attack range of an enemy Turret icon.png turret (excluding the Nexus Obelisk.png Nexus Obelisk), Last Breath will instead attempt to position him outside of it.

Info
  • Last Breath requires the target to be affected by Airborne icon.png airborne from an enemy source, and simultaneously that the target is not considered Cc-immune icon.png cc-immune, Unstoppable icon.png displacement immune, or Untargetable icon.png untargetable during it.
    • Last Breath cannot be cast if there are no nearby enemy champions that meet the conditions.
      • Attempting to cast the ability on an enemy champion that is not airborne will indicate that they "Must Be Airborne!"
    • Self-applied or allied-applied Airborne icon.png displacements do not allow Last Breath to target the champion. Those applied by the neutral team (e.g. Dragon's Dragon's initial knock back) can be targeted.
    • An indicator will be placed towards enemy champions that meet the cast conditions within range of Last Breath to signify the ability can be cast.
    • The Hextech Ultimatum The Hextech Ultimatum will prevent Yasuo from casting Last Breath on an airborne enemy champion outside its borders.
      • Yasuo can only do so if the airborne enemy champion is inside the zone.
  • Yasuo does not need Sight icon.png sight of enemy champions near his target to affect them with the ability.
  • Even if the target is protected by Spell Shield.png spell shield the ability will still affect them and deal damage, but the spell shield will be consumed.
  • Last Breath's Airborne icon.png knock up can be fully Remove Scurvy.png cleansed but its damage is applied instantly after the removal.
  • Terrain displacing abilities (e.g. Weaver's Wall Weaver's Wall, Pillar of Ice Pillar of Ice, Volcanic Rupture Volcanic Rupture) that affect enemy champions are considered Airborne icon.png airborne, and will therefore interact with Last Breath.
  • While blinking, Yasuo creates an Untargetable icon.png untargetable clone of himself that cues a dashing animation (similar to Sweeping Blade's Sweeping Blade's) towards the target. This unit's rules do not follow those of a Command Hallucinate.png clone's. As such, it is more alike a champion, unless special cased.
  • While performing Last Breath, Yasuo is Lockout icon 2.png locked out of performing actions.
  • The following table refers for interactions while Yasuo is locked out:

Yasuo OriginalSkin.jpg
Original
RP 975
13.12.2013
An Ionian of deep resolve, Yasuo is an agile swordsman who wields the air itself against his enemies. As a proud young man, he was falsely accused of murdering his master—unable to prove his innocence, he was forced to slay his own brother in self defense. Even after his master’s true killer was revealed, Yasuo still could not forgive himself for all he had done, and now wanders his homeland with only the wind to guide his blade.
