Wild Rift Yasuo Gameplay Tips and Tricks

Early Game:

Yasuo’s early game is pretty weak against the ranged champion. So, in the early game, try to farm under the tower or from a safe distance to avoid getting poked by an enemy champion. Once you have all of your three abilities, you can look for trade with enemy laner. Before engage with the enemy laner, make sure your shield is up so you can poke the enemy laner without taking much damage.

Yasuo gets a massive power spike once he hits a level 5. At this time, you can look for all-in trade with the enemy laner and try to secure a kill. If you cannot find a good opportunity to use your ultimate, then roam the side lanes with your jungle and use it there.

Late Game:

In the Mid to late game, when you have your core Items and few kills under your belt, Yasuo becomes an assassin and can one-shot squishy enemy champions with his ultimate. In the late, always play with your team and especially with the champions like Malphite, Rakan, Jana, or any other Champions that can provide knock-up for your ultimate. Yasuo’s Wind Wall also becomes very useful in the late game so use it carefully during the Teamfight to stop all incoming projectile.

In the late game, use your dash to reach enemies backline and eliminate enemies AD Carry as it makes the fight lot easier for your team.
