Hey Everyone! and welcome to my build of Akali!<br />

<br />
This is an in-depth look at the new amazing character who can roll many faces:<br />
<br />
<u>Pros:</u><br />
- Crazy amounts of burst damage<br />
- Amazing Chaser<br />
- Very good at KSing or in some cases preventing it<br />
- Great at juking (you have a portable bush in essence)<br />
- Very strong team contribution in a team fight (picks of squishy DPS chars so fast they dont even notice)<br />
<br />

<u>Cons:</u><br />
- Squishy/Hard to play early game<br />
- Gets targeted on occasion<br />
- Difficult to master<br />
<br />
Summoner Spells:<br />
<br />
Flash: This is the most useful spell for me. Using my shroud i have juked SO many people in the 39 games ive played with her using flash. Lead them into shroud, they are slow, flash out and pray that noone is on the other side :)<br />
<br />
Exhaust: Helps you catch people or blind those annoying DPSers that can roll you if they dont (especially YI and jax). If they thought that they could kill you, well.. teach them different.<br />

<u>Early Game:</u><br />
<br />
(Pick up the Longsword and a health potion) *you do this because you have the runes to provide you the damage buff for AP and you want your spell vamp as a form of health regeneration A.S.A.P. The spell vamp is the coolest part of akali, and i really do take advantage of it. Stay in lane until level 6 and try to last hit with your mark of the assassin. Don't go back unless you have died or accumulated 1500 gold. When you have, go back and buy a Hexxtech Revolver<img class="bbcode_img" src="" />and another health potion (if needed). This is for more spell vamp and even more health/survivability. If you don't have AP runes this will also provide the second buff to your passive.<br />
<br />
<br />
Grab your boots of swiftness<img class="bbcode_img" src="" />and say HELLO to midgame!<br />

<br />
<u>Mid Game:</u><br />
<br />
By the mid game, you should hopefully have your rylai's<img class="bbcode_img" src="" />done and be a pretty beefy nuker who can drop a squishy to little or no health in 2 seconds or less, and slow them. In team fights you are so important because everytime you use your ult you slow a different target. This combined with your twilight shroud can just slow enemies to nothing and tear them apart endlessly (no the slows do not stack it is just a benefit). Grab your guinsoo's<img class="bbcode_img" src="" />after and you are a damage dishing MACHINE!<br />
<br />
When attacking use this combo<br />
<br />
mark > Shadow Dance > Twilight Shroud > Hit > Crescent Slash > Hit > Shadow If they are running and repeat.<br />

<br />
(note that if you have lich bane 2 hits occur meaning, 2x your AP.)<br />
<br />
<u>Late Game:</u><br />
<br />
Grab your Lich Bane<img class="bbcode_img" src="" />and finish off how you choose. I never have gotten past lich bane and if you do Trinity force seems like a good choice for speed, health, more slows, and the sheen stack as well.<br />
<br />
Play the game carefully, dont initiate, let the tank initiate, your job is to finish not to start. Play generally carefully and you wont be dying much. My KD started rough testing builds but has now improved to a 3.7:1 from 1:1 (10 games of 1:1, 20 games after i bumped to a 3.7:1).. If that helps at all..<br />
She is not yet on my most played but is definately getting there as i went on a 9 game win streak >.<.<br />

<br />
GL all and i hope this helped!<br />
<br />
Dont minus without comments<br />
