Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Akali: "I suggest you run"
Only noobs... When will the matchmaking ever find true balance.
After many hour of play Leauge of Legends with Akali I have finaly found the ultimate build for her and here it is!
In my opinion Ap-Akali is so much better then AD-Akali becouse Akali is a very vulnerable champion so she cant just stand around and autohit becouse it will make her die.
Your first Spells:
I start with Mark of the Assassin(q) for heavy damage and harass.
Then it take Twilight Shroud(w) becouse MOTA(q) and TW(w) makes a perfect combo.
And after that Crescent Slash(e) for more burst damage.
If you're going low on Hp just use "Ignite" and Twilight Shroud(w)
I almost always have "Exhaust" just becouse of the slow and blind against As champions.
*I Start with a "Long Sword" becouse of the Spell-vamp witch make you able to stay at your line a bit longer.
"But Ap is better for Akali as first iteam!!"
And I cant agree more but becouse of your Ap per Level runes and 10 Ap (when Ignite is on cd) you get 20 Ap around level 3.
*Then I buy "Blasting Wand" or "Amplifying Tome" , it depends on how much money you got.
*After that I'll get "Boots of speed" .
Then I go for "Rylia's Crystal Secpter"Rylia's Crystal Secpyer becouse it's easyer to get the extra damage for MOTA(q) if they get slowed when you charge with Shadow Dance(r).
*Now I upgrade my normal shoes to "Sorcerer's Shoes" becouse of it's spell penetration and speed bonus.
*Then I start 2 build "Sheen" for a later "Lich Bane" . When you have "Litch Bane" you well sone be able to make 1000 damage with my rotation.
*After that I buy a "Pickaxe" becouse now you have so much Ap that the extra damage from Akali's passive is so high that your 25 damage from "Pickaxe" transforms in to atleast 40 damage and it will get even higher as you gain more Ap and you can always upgrade it to "Guinsoo's Rageblade" after you are done with the main build.
*And last but not least "Zhonya's Ring" for pure Ap to increase the damage of the "Litch Bane".
*You can also upgrade your "Long Sword" to "Sword of the Occult" if you want but I dont becouse i rather to the safe stats way.
Mark of the Assassin(q)
Auto hit(a) witch trigger.
q > r > a > e
You would like to make this rotation all the time but if the enemy run or if they are to far away you can make this rotaion:
r > q > r > a > e
When your are harassing your line is if you through MOTA(q) and then wait for the cooldown to run out becouse the mark of MOTA(q) hars a longer duration then the cooldown on the MOTA(q) spell witch will make you be able two MOTA(q) in one burst!
You want to use this Rotation:
q > (Let cd run out) > r > a > (r) > q > a > e
Do Twilight Shroud(w) when you start to take damage becouse I've seen many Akalis who use Twilight Shroud(w) in there rotation witch isn't good at all becouse you lose much energy
and Twilight Shroud(w) is "Akali's Hp" so you almost always need it later.
