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.
This is a small guide of how I choose to play Akali
This insight includes some tips & tricks I've picked up, item choices depending on how well (or not) the game goes and a bonus demonstration of Akali's synergy with Sona and how it will affect your games, if you choose to lane with her, for the better.
I think the best way to start this guide is to begin outside of our games, covering everything we can find in our summoner profile.
PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT ON THIS GUIDE YET - I HAVE ACCIDENTLY PUBISHED IT UNINTENTIONALLY! -THIS IS MOST DEFINATELY A WORK IN PROGRESS.
tl;dr Go read another guide!
