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.
Ello, my name is Wookie and this is my Akali Jungle guide, it is my first guide so please i would like to see your suggestions to make it better and I am open to criticism!
Pros / Cons
[+] One of the best single damage dealers in the game!
[+] Decent clear because of the (E) AOE and the (Q) Auto-Attack damage
[+] No mana
[+] Gets a MASSIVE damage spike once you build a ..
[+] Good Ganks once she hits 6
[-] Very prone to counter-jungling
[-] Really weak start, needs items like ||
[-] Squishy overall if you build full damage, if you don't like being squishy use the Damage/Tank build for a bit of tankiness
Jungle Path - IMPORTANT
 Get a leash from your fellow top laner at krugs, use your (Q) on the big krug
 Go to raptors second, and get your (E) as it provides great aoe and hits all 4 raptors.
 Go to red after taking raptors, also by the time you take raptors you will have at least 10 seconds on your smite, so you can go to red and use your smite to get a health regen, and depending on your health you can clear camp 4 and 5.
 Go to wolves after red, take this camp and if you have enough health or a health pot left, use it now and go to blue.
 Use your smite on the blue, as I am pretty sure if you do not you will lose a LOT of health and possibly die
PLEASE DO NOT USE YOUR (W) ON THE CAMPS! 5.19 PATCH PATIENCE UPDATE WILL TRIGGER THEIR PATIENCE IF YOU ARE HIDDEN IN THE SHROUD AND WILL HARD RESET!

Tips to make you a much better akali player
 Use your ultimate to dash to enemy minions and monsters/jungle camps to get away from danger, or to get closer to an enemy champion.
 If you place your (W) over a wall, you can use it as vision of camps, and can use your ult to jump over walls, here is an example:
 Someone can place a pink ward inside of your (W) to get vision of you inside it, be aware of this as people will buy the vision trinket upgrade just for this reason.
 ALWAYS buy a sweeper one either your first or second back, and make sure to get the upgrade ASAP, as its a perfect item for Akali as her main role is an assassin and you are not going to be very stealthy when you are sitting in a warded brush.
 I recommend if you want to get 6 as fast as possible, to try and not gank, always help your lanes if they are getting chased out of lane, or the enemy laner is horribly over-extended, but otherwise just farm until you hit 6.
 This tip is for all around jungling, if you are going against a devourer jungler, try to get wards in there jungle, and keep track of where they are, for example, the video at the bottom of the guide shows a 2/14 Shyvana, she was SO far behind as i kept track of her when she ganked lanes, and because i can't pull off good ganks until 6, if i seen her in the bot lane, I would take her ENTIRE top side jungle, which denies her devourer stacks, this allowed me to get 6 quicker, denied her farm for her devourer stacks, and put her miles behind as the her ganks are also not very strong early, and she only managed to pull off one successful gank.
Do I recommend this for ranked?
I do not play akali in ranked very much, but from playing her a lot in normals and sometimes in ranked I feel I can give my own opinion.
