S2 Scrub Akali
Akali is a great at doing what she's supposed to: quickly killing off enemies. The masteries here are focus on her offensive capabilities, Brute Force enabling her to start off with her +10 AD boost. I use Ignite as her second skill, which is why I go for the mastery upgrade(+10 AP early game helps greatly). I find it great for making sure you nab a kill without having to abandon a team fight/turret dive. Flash is pretty standard, when combo'd with her Ultimate it makes chasing down enemies and getting away insanely easy.
I focus on Mark of the Assassin first, as it is an easy way to last hit minions early game and deal damage without having to rush in when laning. Twilight Shroud before Crescent Slash because you can start farming much more aggressively with it up, and your opponents will have trouble killing you inside your magic bubble. At level 6 you can start really getting some kills in, her Ultimate gives you insane chasing and initiating power, Mark->Ult->Attack->Mark->Attack->Crescent dishes out a huge chunk of burst damage, you can throw up a Twilight Shroud somewhere inbetween for some added Def/Resist and Slow.
