Today we will go over the Best Yasuo Champion Combos In League of Legends.
Yasuo, one of the most memed champions in the history of League of Legends, has his strengths in carrying potential. Of course, synergies always make it easier for the team carry to deal damage, whether it may be an easier time to use ultimate or tons of healing for maximum survivability. Nevertheless, Yasuo is one of the strongest AD champions in the late game, and his ultimate makes him a strong assassin to burst enemy champions. Here are the Yasuo champion synergies in League of Legends to make it easier for his players to win team fights and make amazing outplays.
Best Yasuo Champion Synergies: Ability Power Champions
The second support champion in this list belongs to the Yordle Fae Sorceress, Lulu. She does not have the power to charge in and knock multiple enemies at once like Alistar. But her ultimate is enough to support Yasuo to cause wreckage in Summoner’s Rift. To be exact, Lulu’s ultimate, Wild Growth, will make an ally bigger and grant bonus health, but the best thing is that it will knock up nearby enemies. Wild Growth greatly helps Yasuo, especially when he closes the gap on enemy carries because of the knock-up and bonus health.
Additionally, Lulu’s other abilities, Whimsy and Help, Pix!, will significantly help Yasuo players because of the additional attack speed and shield, making it easier to deal tons of damage during team fights.
This champion is rarely paired with Yasuo since the lone wanderer usually plays in the mid lane. Still, Orianna will always be one of the best Yasuo champion synergies in the game. The lady of clockwork controls a magical ball that can deal damage or shield allies. But what makes Orianna a great champion synergy with Yasuo is her ultimate, Command: Shockwave. Orianna can place her ball anywhere and knock everyone up with her ultimate, and in a lucky situation, she may even get all five enemies, which is the dream for all Yasuo mains.
Also, Orianna’s Command: Protect ability grants shield, and additional magic resist and magic resist to an ally. If cast on Yasuo, this will make him tankier and grant sustainability during team fights, enabling him to maximize his damage potential.
Arguably the best champion synergy for Yasuo next to Malphite, Zyra is a nightmare during team fights, especially when combined with a Yasuo. Like Orianna, Zyra’s ultimate, Stranglethorns, knocks everyone up after a brief period of being casted. The only difference is that the larger area of coverage, making it almost impossible for the opposing team to escape it.
Zyra does not have shielding abilities like Lulu or Orianna or gap closee abilities like Nautilus, but her ultimate alone is good enough to be a great synergy with Yasuo. Still, Zyra players should time their ultimates correctly to be able to knock enemies up.
Thankfully for Yasuo mains, Diana is one of the champions that received a full rework because she now has abilities that will synergize well with the lone wanderer. Like most champions in this list, Diana needs to activate her ultimate to give an opening for their ally Yasuo. However, the great thing is because of her dash, that she can catch more than two enemies at once when she casts her ultimate, making it easier for Yasuo players to go in with their Sweeping Blade and assassinate enemy carries.
The Diana and Yasuo carry synergy is a nightmare for both the AD carry and Mid lane of the enemy team because of their burst damage and gap close potential.
Best Yasuo Champion Synergies: Tank/Support Champions
The second support champion in this list, Nautilus, has several abilities that will significantly help any Yasuo player. Nautilus’ first skill, Dredge Line, hooks enemies when hit, rendering them airborne for a short second. This allows Yasuo players to cast their Sweeping Blade anytime a champion is hit with Dredge Line. Not only that, but Dredge Line is also a great gap close used to engage with enemies, making it easier for Yasuo to deal damage in a short-range during team fights.
Additionally, Nautilus’ ultimate, Depth Charge, is one of the best knock-ups in the game since it is a point-and-click ability that cannot be canceled. Once Depth Charge is cast, an enemy champion is certain to be knocked up, and usually, this ultimate is cast on enemy carries, making it easier for a Yasuo player to assassinate a carry. These two abilities alone make the Titan of the Depths one of the most excellent champion synergies with Yasuo.
If you are looking for a jungle champion to use with an ally Yasuo, then Zac is probably your best bet. Zac probably has the most abilities that can knock enemies airborne. Three abilities namely, Stretching Strikes, Elastic Slingshot, and Let’s Bounce!, knock enemies airborne.
Zac’s Elastic Slingshot is probably his best ability that will help Yasuo in all stages of the game. Zac, who is consistently a strong jungler since his introduction, can surprise enemies with ganks and knock them up anywhere on the map pre-6. Additionally, Let’s Bounce is a really strong ultimate that knocks enemies continuously as long as they are hit by the ability, similar to Wukong’s Cyclone. This allows an ally Yasuo a lot of room for mistakes before being able to cast Sweeping Blade. Moreover, Zac is usually given tank items, making it easier for him to infiltrate the enemy back line and knock all the carries up, which is the dream for all Yasuo players.
Of course, a best Yasuo synergy list will not be complete without Malphite. If you think wind and stone do not go together, this champion will debunk that thought. The Shard of Monolith is not the same as some of the champions in this list that have multiple abilities that knock enemies airborne, but his ultimate is arguably the best one to use to activate Yasuo’s Sweeping blade. Usually, when a Malphite uses their ultimate, more than three enemies get knocked up, and to make things better for Yasuo players, enemies that are knocked up stay in the air for more than a second.
Like Zac, Malphite is a tanky champion that can infiltrate the enemy back line. His ultimate, Unstoppable Force, has a swift animation that makes it hard for enemies to react. A player should try Malphite if they want an easy-to-use but great team fighting champion that goes well with Yasuo.
The first support champion on this list is Alistar. This raging bull is one of the first champions in League of Legends, but what makes him a good combo with Yasuo is his fast knock up that will make it easy to cast Yasuo’s ultimate, Last Breath. Not only that, but Alistar is also really tanky, making him a great frontline to soak damage while Yasuo assassinates the enemy’s back line. Great Alistar players can knock up multiple enemies at once, and at a good timing, maybe even all the carries in the back line.
Best Yasuo Champion Synergies: Attack Damage Champions
Even though Riven is Yasuo’s main rival in League of Legends, she is still one of the best champion synergies for the lone wanderer. Riot Games has created comics, teasers, and animations all about the Yasuo Riven rivalry, but they have really good synergy in the Rift. Both champions use the wind for their attacks, which makes it even more obvious that both can perform nasty combos and outplays. Unlike other champions in this list that only have knock-ups with their ultimates, Riven can support Yasuo by knocking up a champion using her first skill. To make things worse for their enemies, Riven’s first skill has a short cooldown, especially if she builds ability haste, which leaves room for her ally Yasuo to spam their ultimates during team fights. Not only that, but Riven is also very mobile and can stun enemies, making her a great champion to pair with Yasuo.
Like the Diana synergy, Wukong is one of the champions that will give a lot of problems to enemy carries. Wukong’s ultimate, Cyclone, is one of the best combos to Yasuo’s Sweeping Blade because the channel is continuous and will knock up anyone who is hit by the ability. Furthermore, since Wukong is a trickster that can dip in and out of a team fight, the whole enemy team will make it hard to protect their backline.
The Monkey King also has a similar playstyle with Yasuo, strengthening their synergy when it comes to team fighting prowess. Anyone that goes against this duo should be careful when moving around the map because they will be easily punished.
Yasuo’s brother, Yone, will always be in mind when thinking about his best synergies. Both masters of wind swordsmanship, Yone has a really similar playstyle to his brother. And in terms of synergy, they make an excellent team. Players of these champions will always look to assassinate the enemy backline because of the nature of their playstyle. Yone’s ultimate, Fate Sealed, is one of the best abilities that will help Yasuo cast his Sweeping Blade. Yone will knock enemies airborne and pull them towards him if they are hit with Fate Sealed, making enemies clump together, which grants Yasuo a huge opening to use his Sweeping Blade.
Additionally, Yone’s first ability, Mortal Steel, knocks anyone up when cast with two stacks, which is very similar to Yasuo’s Steel Tempest. Mortal Steel allows Yone to assist Yasuo pre-6 without needing to cast his ultimate.
Yone and Yasuo will always have the ultimate brotherhood synergy anywhere in Summoner’s Rift, but both champions are hard to master. So, anyone who looks to use Yone as a combo with Yasuo should take some time before mastering the Unforgotten.
