The mastery Build I picked for this character is something I've seen for many characters that use AP and are squishy. It's the highest damage dealing defensive build that is around for most characters (imo).
Ghost- As one of the best chasers/escape artist in game, ghost is a must have spell. It's a necessity for either closing the space between u and a your target and faking people out with your bubble when in trouble.
Exhaust- The second most important spell for an assassin. Not only does it help for those ganks, its also for those annoying attack speed stacking high movement speed gankeing heroes we know and love(yi, teemo, jax etc.).
There are other spells that also work with Akali that are also changed in and out like ignite and cleanse, but the ones i picked i think are the most useful.
-Amplifying Tome and HP Pot
-Try teaming up with a stun, taunt, or knock up hero
-Only return to base if you gather about 1000 gold or if you die
-Harass with mark as much as possible
-Abuse bubble as a push and to help with your harass
-Try to save your mark on your target for the last hit for early kills
This is where Akali is a monster and her ganking starts.
-Hopefully you have Sheen, Boots of Swiftness, Phage, and starting Lichbane or Gunblade
-Target squishy heros as much as possible to take advantage. If none oh well, you still do massive amounts of burst to take heroes down fast even tanks
-Mark >> Dance >> Slash >> Bubble a head >> Auto attack. This is bread and butter combo rinse and repeat
-Monster buffs are a need for that extra hmpf, Red then blue is your priority order
-Take advantage of team ganks and fights
This is where akali is most vulnerable. Play defensively and stick with your team. This is when you are targeted most, when team battles engage or when you are straggling behind.
-By now you should have all your items if not no worries you should still do enough burst damage to kill them in 1 combo if not enough for them to have 1hp left
- Teamwork is your best friend abuse it
Tips & Reminders
-Never Over extend yourself
-Bubble is also your escape!
-Dance is also an escaping tool!
-Your an assassin, not a raging bull, be very discreet during solo ganks and team fights
Hope this guide will help you be that overpowered character people rage about from beginning to end of a game. Please rate and comment.
