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.
OKAY. ready to play akali? i hope so.
insane burst damager
good pick against squishes
can survive longer thanks to shroud
and is always a good finisher if your team is too far to reach for the people that are running away from your pure awesome build
attack sequence: R-Q-regular attack-Q-regular attack-then either R again to finish or E to finish
defensive attack sequence- R-W-Q-regular attack-Q-regular attack- and R or E to finish
EARLY GAME lvls 1-9
okay you have doran's blade and if you think that something will happen you have a helath potion, just in case. you got your Q ability first, and you head bottom or top.(if your team doesn't have any mid chars. then you should go mid instead, akali is okay at mid, but does better with a partner)
try to get last hits if possible for you, even if it means to use your Q ability on the last hit(PLEASE DON'T USE IT WHEN THE ENEMY IS THERE, ONLY WHEN THEY ARE MIA OR DEAD) you prob. went back a few times but that's okay, it means you rushed rylais first(I hope, but if you think you need the speed first, then go ahead and get the threads, it doesn't hurt that much, but rylais would have been better since your Q starts to slow them enough for you to catch up) with that rylais you should be able to get a lot of kills with just that item, even if your alone or not, your exhaust helps you get some of those kills, but don't rely on it too much okay? it's just there to either make any physical hero be useless and a free kill, or to slow down someone even more to catch up.
MID GAME lvl 9-14
Okay! by this time you should have rylais with threads, and if fed.. you should have rageblade also... well perfect! that means your a step closer to being an insane hero.
now that you have the items get lich bane!(if needed sell dorans to help out with lichbane) it helps out a lot, but only get lichbane after Rageblade, rageblade is very helpful to take down towers due to it's stacks, and also gives you extra AP,which helps out also. Oh did i mention that by the time your Q ability should be maxed? if i didn't then sorry, i should have said that first then.
LATE GAME lvls 14-18
Perfect! by this time you should have 4 out of the six items, if you got 5 then even better! the 5th items is zhonyas, by this time also you should have 2 lvls in your ult, maxed out Q ability and also E ability, that leaves your shroud at about 3 lvls before it's maxed out. if every thing went as it should, then once you have zhonyas, you should be killing with ease, once done with that you have the 5 core items then! the last one should either be Viod staff, or abyssel secpter if they have AP users.
And that's it! that's all i can say about this build, i think it's stable, and most effective. i've been using this build, and it works!
