Guide to Countering Yasuo as Lux

Tips for Playing as Lux against Yasuo

If you have trouble landing Prismatic Barrier, remember that it returns to you after it reaches max range. Try positioning yourself to hit your allies with its return trip.

Lucent Singularity is a great scouting tool. Try throwing it into brush before walking into it to check for ambushes.

Lux has great zone control abilities. Try to set up Lucent Singularity to prevent an enemy's advance or escape.

Advice to Win Against Yasuo

Steel Tempest is very narrow. Dodge laterally if possible.

Yasuo is at his weakest just after he has launched a whirlwind. Engage at that point.

Yasuo's shield from Resolve lasts only 2 seconds. Dealing damage to him will trigger it. Wait it out, then engage.

When Yasuo lands two Steel Tempests in a row, his next will fire a tornado. Watch and listen for the associated sound to prepare to dodge.
