You should also get a rageblade for Akali and you should get Hextech Gunblade later in the game and not so early but get Hextech revolver early game.


I like your point about just getting the revolver early :o The only reason i get the whole thing is because of the huge sustainability it provides which is key to this build in ragards that if you follow it to the T you have no initial sustain to speak of. But Guinsoo's Rageblade just doesnt have a place in this build, the ability power isn't high enough and in a split second you really dont have time for too much auto attacking so i feel like its potential is wasted on someone like akali. maybe better for Jax build.

This is a very good Akali guide that, in my opinion, trumps the top guide it terms of the efficiency of the item build. However, the one thing I'd consider changing or atleast add as an alternative option are the Greater Mark of Magic Penetrations. I find that in general you will do more damage with these runes than the scaling AP. I have no problems with you going Greater Mark of Scaling Ability Power on the other three rune types. But I implore <--- that you atleast add insight as an option.

I also noticed that you probably won't start with both parts of Twin Disciplines active with your setup. Is this correct, and is this optimal?

aha that's pretty high praise xD i dont think i deserve that but thankyou! I'll try out Greater Mark of Magic Penetration and see how they work out for me :)

And no i do not start with either buffs but i described in the guide that its a small sacrifice to pay for late game controll.

The reason for this system is to prevent troll votes, which are very common on new guides. It only applies to the first twenty votes, so people won't have to do that after a bit anyway.

Also, I agree with Pikachu's opinion on Guinsoo's Rageblade. More of an item for someone like Nidalee than Akali. You'd be playing her less like an assassin if you bought that item.

Exactly! It's Potential is wasted on Akali she's not an auto attack champion. And the buff you get from building ad gives you extra spell vamp but what good is that going to do you if your spells aren't doing as much damage as they could. The point of being an assassin is to kill someone before they even know they're deaed. Consistantly auto attacking is too slow since i've never even seen an Akali build attack speed. Guinsoo's Rageblade is a good item no doubt, but not ment for Akali.

I don't know. As an Akali player, I have serious apprehension about not starting with both the AD and AP passives activated. In any case, it's simple to do so: 7 marks of Strength and AD mastery, and 3 Quints of Potency with the scaling AP mastery and runes. By level 2 you should have the AP passive.

In addition, Quints of Force only balance out with Quints of Potency at level 12, so that's a lot of lost time where you could be dominating with Potency. Akali is a champion who stays safe for 6 levels and then starts taking massive dumps on enemy champions once obtaining Shadow Dash. You need an amount of early game power and Potency gives you that. In addition, you should obtain Lich Bane before Rabadon's to obtain massive burst, I believe the burst outclasses the AP you gain from Rabadon's.

Edit: After reading the guide more indepth, I see more flaws. There should be no reason to go into the Utility Tree (Akali isn't blue-buff dependent, she doesn't need 10 more energy, nor does she really need MS, as she has her dashes.) You should use Marks of Insight for Magic Penetration (Magic Penetration is a multiplier of Magic Damage). And instead of taking 9 in Utility, change it for 9 in defense, speccing for the flat 30 HP. As for Seals, you might want to take a look at HP/level seals, but if not, it's fine.
