Yea but he can farm from safety I think.

Doubt it depending on the matchup. His Q isn't exactly high range and his E is a champion gap closer. With LS quints, maybe. Still easily harassed by ranged champs.

How many thrust motion do you perform wielding a Kantana/Ōdachi?
It would just feel more natural to be a slashing/slicing motion instead a thrust.
A thrust motion that creats a whirlwind, doesn't sound right to me.

Have you played Zed mid?

Yasuo will be like Zed without shuriken; the lack of ranged threat leaves the Q and auto. Hes outranged easily, though he has dash shenanigans. Outside of the threat of an all in, he has nothing stopping ranged harass from all the mid laners save the 20 cd shield.

Put it all together and it sounds as though the preferred early game for Yasuo will be to have minions push to his turret ala Kassadin

Probably during the 22 seconds of downtime between casts of wind wall.

So his dash is a targeted ability ala Fizz's Q? With a cooldown of 0.5-1, I would assume so, otherwise he crosses the Rift in no time at all.

Except Yasuo doesn't have a freely placeable escape/gap closer Which can be used to damage.

Early iterations of Yasuo's Q were conal AOEs. The gameplay wasn't right. The katana is actually a very capable thrusting weapon and the mechanic was exactly what Yasuo needed.

How sure are you on having such a condition on a champions ult?

Not being able to ult is never fun.
