According to League of Legends lore, Yone is Yasuo’s conscientious older half-brother. Yone and Yasuo were close as children, both studying at the village’s sword school until the war came to Ionia, and Yone was called away, leaving the impetuous Yasuo to defend the elders. After abandoning his post to seek battle and returning to find his master Elder Souma dead, Yasuo was accused of murder and fled his home.

Yasuo was eventually tracked down by Yone, who believed in his younger brothers’ guilt and sought to bring him to justice. Yasuo was forced to battle Yone, who he easily bested, and though Yasuo begged Yone for his forgiveness and tried to convince him of his innocence, Yone died still believing in his brothers’ betrayal.

Here are the skills rundown of Yone revealed by League of Legend

PASSIVE – WAY OF THE HUNTER

Yone uses two blades, causing every second attack to deal more magic damage. His critical strike chance is also doubled, but his critical strikes deal reduced damage.

Q – MORTAL STEEL

Yone thrusts forward, dealing physical damage to opponents. On hit, he gains a stack of Gathering Storm. At two stacks, Yone can dash forward with a wave that makes enemies airborne.

W – SPIRIT CLEAVE

Yone cleaves forward in a massive arc, dealing a portion of the target’s maximum health. After successfully hitting an enemy, Yone also gains a temporary shield. The shield’s power increases per champion struck.

E – SOUL UNBOUND

Yone can enter his Spirit Form, gaining movement speed and leaving his body behind. When Yone’s Spirit Form expires, he’ll snap back into his body and deal a percentage of all the damage he dealt while in Spirit Form.

R – FATE SEALED

Yone strikes all enemies in his path, blinking behind the last enemy hit and knocking everyone airborne towards him.
