With only a few minutes, you can understand all the ways to counter Yone very easily in current patch 10.16.
As a new champion, Yone‘s “danger level” is relatively high, because when on the enemy team, Yone can be extremely strong and suppress your team with a skill set that is not familiar with many people. If on our team, the “danger level” is no less because “The One Who Comes From the Dead” can die countless times.So the question that many people are asking is “how to counter Yone?”
How to counter Yone?
So if you climb the rank and forget about not banning Yone, you should learn some champions as well as how to counter this new champion:
Which items can counter Yone ?
In terms of counter Yone items , he is just like other physical damage assassins, if you equip armor, it will obviously be stronger against Yone. The cheapest and most effective item is probably Ninja Tabi with increased armor and passive ability which can block up to 12% of damage from basic attacks (Yone’s passive and Q are both basic attacks).
Next, being a critical damage oriented assassin, the item that helps you block Yone’s maximum damage is Randuin Omen – this item will slow down the attack (Yone’s Q and W cooldowns are based on additional attack speed), reducing the critical damage taken (Yone has doubled the critical rate so this is essential). Finally, it will be Thornsmail (or Bramble Vest) to prevent Yone’s life steal ability, because Yone’s usual life steal combo will be the Conqueror rune+ Death’s Dance.
With champions that are prone to cause damage, you can still build normal items, but you need Grievous Wounds ,Executioner’s Calling or Morellonomicon will be very important equipment.
What champions Counter Yone?
As for champions with counter ability, with a “hardcore” playstyle, you can choose high damage champions to crush Yone’s lane from early game. Typically, some champions are not afraid to face Yone such as Talon, Fizz, Nocturne, Renekton, … Because unlike his brother Yasuo, Yone does not have a shield as well as Wall Wind (W), so he is quite is afraid of being harassed as well as “hardcore” playstyle from early game.
Some other long range champions that can be used to “torture” Yone in mid lane will be Lucian (a hot pick in solo lanes with very strong abilities), or Cassiopeia – constantly harassing with E + Q and W combos prevent Yone’s dashes.
In the case of players love to build full tank champions, the right champions Poppy – who can counter many of Yone’s abilities, or Malphite – is constantly harassing with Q and is also very “tough” when there is a shield with him.
