We knew a new champion would be on its way soon but out of the two brother Yone and Yasuo, we didn’t know it could be the latter. Yasuo has been announced as the latest champion in the league of legends through a post on the game’s official website.
What makes his story so intriguing is that Yasuo “the Unforgiven” has earned the title after killing his very own brother Yone. He is a man of resolve, an agile swordsman and the only student of his generation at lonian sword school to have mastered the legendary wind technique. He is expected to be an impressive entry into the already long list of League of Legends champions.
Brace yourselves, here’s his skill set:
Passive: Way of the Wanderer
Intent: Yasuo’s critical strike chance is doubled.
Resolve: Yasuo gains Flow as he moves – the faster he moves, the faster his Flow meter fills. When full, Yasuo activates a brief shield after taking damage from enemy champions or monsters.
Q: Steel Tempest
Yasuo thrusts forward with his sword, damaging all enemies in a line. Successfully landing Steel Tempest grants Yasuo Gathering Storm stacks for a short period. The third stack of Gathering Storm causes Steel Tempest to send out a whirlwind that travels in a line and sends all enemies caught Airborne. If Yasuo casts Steel Tempest during Sweeping Blade, the ability strikes all enemies immediately around him.
W: Wind Wall
Passive: Dashing replenishes Yasuo’s Flow faster.
Active: Yasuo creates a wall of wind that slowly drifts forward for a few seconds. The wall blocks all enemy projectiles.
E: Sweeping Blade
Yasuo dashes a fixed distance through an enemy, dealing damage and marking them briefly. If Yasuo uses Sweeping Blade multiple times in succession, the ability deals extra damage up to a cap. Yasuo cannot use Sweeping Blade on an enemy that’s already been marked.
R: Last Breath
Yasuo teleports to a nearby Airborne enemy champion, briefly suspending them and all surrounding Airborne enemies mid-air as he damages them. Once he lands, Yasuo gains significant armor penetration against his enemy’s bonus armor for an extended period of time.
