League of Legends: Wild Rift Yasuo Gameplay Tips

Being a Fighter and Assassin, Yasuo is usually played in the Baron and Mid lane without any support. This champion is usually solo handling his own lane. The Wild Rift’s map is a mirror so understand the map side before laning. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our League of Legends: Wild Rift Yasuo guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game in the game.

Early Game

As a solo laner, never engage if there are two enemies. Start with clearing the minion wave and kill the nearby small creeps to increase the gold count. Once you have got an AD item, move on to kill the solo enemy. Don’t forget to hit the turret plating to get more gold.

Mid Game

As of now, always keep an eye on the map. A hero like Yasuo must keep roaming to kill the enemy carry.

Wild Rift Yasuo Guide

Killing the carry will not only grant you huge gold but also will help in pushing the turrets. As the enemy team is lacking the damage, you can freely gank.

Late Game

With the necessary items in hand, the execution of a perfect combo can finish off a mid-HP champion. Yasuo’s ability set allows him uninterrupted harassment of enemy champion. Use the skills to zone out the enemy, and wait for your team to arrive. A good Yasuo will use the backline to carry out the killings. You can use your combos like-

Skill 3+ Skill 2+ Skill 1

Final Thoughts

We can conclude that Yasuo is hard to play Fighter/Assassin with high damage output and sustain. Go for securing objectives like Towers, Drakes, etc. With the above guide, you can easily practice Yasuo in LoL Wild Rift. As mentioned about the difficulty of the champion, it requires quite a practice to land perfectly timed combos.

With the above guide, you can easily practice Yasuo in LoL Wild Rift, and before heading to play ranked matches practice a little bit in the PVP mode.
