Threats to Akali with this build
|Yasuo||Any start will do. this guy will do nothing unless hes smart in which case he will buy a hexdrinker making your burst almost nothing if you think he is going to do this max e. So when engaging him try to q then either get his shield or wind wall best case its his shield in which case you are free to r after its gone and then q again, easy kills.|
In this guide i will be talking about my favourite assassin and champion Akali.
Akali is a high damage melee AP assassin who utilises her ult which is a dash and her w as her invisibility for her utility with her q to mark your target and her e to do a slash of damage.
Pros / Cons
Akali has A LOT of Ability power burst damage.
Can counter some of your most hated champs.
Fun to play especially with the new Shroud.
Akali has a not so good late game and cant really engage unless able to secure a kill instantly.
She can only do so much then have energy issues so attack cycles can sometimes be hard to monitor.
A starter to the new role of Akali top lane.
The way Akali should be played. Akali is an ASSASSIN not a tank it hurts me when i see an Akali with spirit visage or sun fire cape before her main item Hextech Gunblade which should be rushed at all costs.
The mastery "Bandit" is a very viable choice if you think you might have a hard time getting CS or maybe you just aren't that good at csing with Akali.
You will probably always want to max Mark of the Assassin unless you think that they will go hex drinker to survive your burst if this is the scenario max e it has a lot of attack damage.
