Yone mid is often seen as overpowered in League of Legends, but some of that comes from having the right build and runes. Like Yasuo, you might see Yone players inting, and this is clear with his 49.35% win rate, so be careful not to become one of them! Yone can be played Top lane too, so flex if you need to!

These are the best Yone runes, the Yone build, and Yone’s matchups in Riot Games’ MOBA! 

Best Yone Build

Best Yone Runes

Yone has the Precision tree as a primary and the Resolve tree as a secondary! 

Best Rune Path Precision
Resolve
Best Keystone Lethal Tempo
Best Slot 1 (Rune) Triumph
Second Wind
Best Slot 2 (Rune) Legend: Alacrity
Unflinching
Best Slot 3 (Rune) Last Stand

Lethal Tempo increases Yone’s Attack Speed by up to 90% when he attacks an enemy champion for 6 seconds. Triumph gives Yone 10% of his missing HP back when he gets a kill, and some extra Gold.

Legend: Alacrity increases his Attack Speed with stacking kills, and Last Stand increases his damage by up to 11% the lower HP he is! Coup De Grace is a good alternative!

Resolve secondary increases his healing. Second Wind heals him for 4% of his missing HP over 10 seconds, whilst Unflinching gives him up to 20% Tenacity and Slow Resist too!

Best Yone Rune Shards

Best Rune Shards Effect
Offense
+10% Attack Speed
Flex
+9 Adaptive Force (5.4 AD or 9 AP)
Defense
+8 Magic Resist

Attack Speed is first, so he can attack faster. Those attacks do more damage with Flex. Magic Resist helps him against the common Mage picks in the Mid Lane in patch 12.14.

Best Yone Summoner Spells

Best Spells Icon
Flash
Ignite

Flash is a go-to on almost any champion in the game unless you are the likes of Nasus or a  Hecarim, who take Ghost! Ignite is there for extra true damage to enemies. 

Best Yone Abilities Order

Level the right abilities at the right time! This is crucial for your kill potential. This is the best Yone skill order:

For the skill order, level Q, Mortal Steel first, so you can farm and poke level one. Next up is W, Spirit Cleave, doing AOE damage to all enemies in front of him. Finally, get E, Soul Unbound, to dash forward, and be able to get out of a fight once you are done!

You should always max your Ultimate, Fate Sealed at levels 6,11 and 18. Your Q should be maxed first for damage output and farming, then your E for the cooldown on the dash. Lastly, your W should be maxed, as it only provides a little damage!

Best Yone Items

Managing League of Legends’ ever-changing meta is difficult, but we have the best Yone items for you here in patch 12.14. Yone builds raw attack speed and on-hit items

Best Starter Yone Items

First Item Second Item
Doran’s Blade
One Health Potion

Doran’s Blade gives Yone some lifesteal and damage. A Health Potion helps with his sustain, especially in a ranged matchup.

Best Mid Game Yone Items

These are your core Yone items that you want to build towards first!

First Item Second Item Third Item
Immortal Shieldbow
Berserker’s Greaves
Infinity Edge

Immortal Shieldbow is the best of Yone’s mythic items. It gives a shield for up to 630 HP for 3 seconds when falling below 30% HP. It also gives up to 35 AD for 8 seconds. The base stats are 50 Physical Damage, 20% Attack Speed, 20% Critical Strike Chance, and 7% Lifesteal. 

Berserker’s Greaves are the best boots, due to their 35% increase in Attack Speed and 45 Move Speed. Infinity Edge gives an extra 35% Critical Strike Chance if you are already above 60%. It gives a base of 70 AD and a 20% Critical Strike Chance. After these three items, you will hard power spike!

Best Final Late Game Yone Items

This is the final build that you want to aim toward when playing Yone.

First Item Second Item Third Item Fourth Item Fifth Item Sixth Item
Immortal Shieldbow
Berserker’s Greaves
Infinity Edge
Death’s Dance
Mortal Reminder
Guardian Angel

The final three items are more survivability focused. Death’s Dance deals out 30% of damage over 3 seconds rather than instantly, also having 55 AD, 45 Armor, and 15 Ability Haste. 

Mortal Reminder applies 25% Grievous Wounds to enemies and has 25 AD, 25%, 20% Critical Strike Chance, and 7% Move Speed. The last item is Guardian Angel, which allows Yone to be revived with 50% after dying on a 300-second cooldown. It also has 40 AD and 40 Armor. Blade of the Ruined King is a nice choice if you need some tank killing!

Best Champions to pair Yone with

Yone has some CC, but he needs a jungler with more for when they gank. These are the best Champions to partner with Yone.

Champion Win Rate % Icon
Fiddlesticks 54.8%
Skarner 53.5%
Mordekaiser 53.0%

Strongest Champions against Yone

These are champions that Yone struggles with, and most of them are mage supports!

Champion Win Rate % Icon
Vex 44.8%
Anivia 45.9%
Cassiopeia 46.5%

Vex can fear Yone, so he is actively forced to move away from her, this wastes time on his Soul Unbound, which only has 5 seconds! The case is similar with Anivia, she can disengage and stall Yone with her Flash Frost and Crystallize.

Cassiopeia takes this one step further, as not only can she ground and slow Yone, but she can also stun him with her Petrifying Gaze ultimate ability!

Weakest Champions against Yone

So finally, we have the best League of Legends champions to play Yone against, the ones that he will absolutely dominate with ease!

Champion Win Rate % Icon
Azir 52.5%
Malzahar 52.4%
Fizz 52.4%

Who isn’t good against Azir nowadays, as the Shuriman emperor cannot dash away fast enough to avoid Yone’s CC and damage! Malzahar is pretty immobile, but with his ultimate being on a long cooldown of 140 seconds at level one, he is just a sitting duck!

Fizz is an assassin, but apart from avoiding Yone’s ultimate with his E, Playful/Trickster, he has no way of getting away from Yone after bursting him down!

With any luck, you now know how to play Yone Mid lane, and being officially involved in The Global Gaming fanbase means we are super excited to see your League of Legends games, with our Yone build and best runes active!
