Yasuo Matchups Overview
Yasuo General information
Weave through the minion wave with your E while always leaving at least 1 minion untouched so you can get out after trading.
Wait for the optimal time to use your R. Don’t just engage whenever anyone gets knocked up as you might be going in 1v5.
Refrain from using your Windwall W unless you need to use it. You never know when it will come in handy to protect you from incoming ganks or global Rs.
Every combo you need to master the champion!
