Yin Overview

Yin was announced to join Paragon roster of Heroes on Mar-09 with the reveal trailer below and became available on Mar-14 with the .38.3 update. She is a melee hard-to-master high-rewarding Hero. Per Paragon development team Yin was designed to give players a Hero who will require a very high skill to play with and in return will be able to change the outcome of a team-fight and make very satisfying game-plays.

From the stats standpoint Yin is a very interesting Paragon Hero. Her Basic Resistance and Attack Speed are one of the highest in late game. To put it straight she is a mix of Serath and Sparrow.

Yin is a solid Mid- or Offlaner that shines in the Late Game.

Paragon Cards for Yin

Cards for Paragon Yin

Yin is a very good scaling Hero so she benefits a lot from Power cards. A good adder to that will be cards increasing Attack Speed, Lifesteal and Critical Strike chance and bonus.

Attack Speed + Power will increase DPS which will help you to bring down your opponents faster and Lifesteal will help Yin to survive in long team-fights and recover faster after them using minions in a Lane or in the Jungle. Critical Strike chance and bonus empowers both DPS and suitability.

Yin Picks and Counter-picks

Pick Yin when you have projectile-based and/or CC-based opponents. A good Yin player will make Howitzer or Rampage suffer from their damaging and stunning projectiles.

Paragon Heroes with good CC or AOE damage that is not projectile-based will be good picks against Yin. Some examples are: Aurora, Gideon, Gadget.
