Threats to Akali with this build
|Fiddlesticks||Early game, he is better than Akali. Mid game - just kill him.|
My summoner name is D3J0 and i play on EUNE. this season, due to a lack of time, im currently sitting in Gold 1, but last season my season best was promotion for Diamond 5.
For the last 3 seasons, I've been maining jungle and playing mostly champions with heavy CC.
But of course i had a lot of fun with Akali jungle.
WHY AKALI JUNGLE?
Because most of enemy junglers dont know how to ply vs her, because she can burst down any opponent when she gets her ultimate and because she can win it easily.
On AP akali i usually take the standard rune path like for example : Elise, Diana or Ekko
Small changes are : Hybrid penetration on marks, because i think that unlike Diana or Ekko, akali can also hurt with her physical damage aswell
When you play AP akali, thunderlord will be a huge help for bursting down enemies and in my opinion its a must have.
On the other hand, if you play her tanky, "Strength of the ages" is a must have
Pros / Cons
+ After 6 ganks
+ Scales nicely
+ If played smart, the biggest carry in your team
+ Easy to master
- Pre 6 ganks
- A bit hard to clear jungle when low level (1-4)
- Vulnerable versus counter junglers such as Lee Sin etc.
Creeping / Jungling
Its pretty basic just like in most of junglers
ON BLUE SIDE
You start the golems and ask your bot for a bit bigger leash. After that, killing birds and saving the smite for red buff might be a bit better than going straight on red buff after golems. I suggest if you manage to save some HP to go kill the wolves or Groump and leave the blue buff (but also warding it) after you go back for the first time.
As i said, Akali is a pretty weak clearing jungler at low levels, so be careful when you wish to kill the crab ( its very helpful to kill it, but be careful).
If enemies are pushing, you have a good chance to help out (even kill) him. just place your w behind him since it slows him, and try to kill him. Again, you wont do some significant damage early, but you helped your teammate a lot
Groump --> Blue buff --> Wolves --> Birds | Go back --> red buff
Note: If you have troubles with ganks pre 6, try to get your ultimate as soon as possible.
(even place some experience quints in ur rune page :D)
Akali aint too hard to master actually. You will get a lot of msgs from ur enemies : "noob champ" or smth like that, and its kind of true :D But you shouldnt feel bad for urself, since Yi can carry games, Akali can aswell!
I hate myself for saying this but, if you are low ELO : play her. Jungle,Top,Mid just do it.
If you dont have experience in jungle,then i dont suggest you to play Akali at first, but once you learn some basics in jungling, go ahead pick her and win some LP!!
Thank you so much for reading my guide, if you have any opinions or suggestions, feel free to comment down below and rate it ^^
ALSO ONE BIG WARNING!!!
You are a jungler! Your job is to help other lanes! If your team if lacking CC, DO NOT PICK AKALI! If youre bronze 5-1, ignore this message because in low ELOS you dont need a lot of CC to be able to win games, carry urself and youll pull your team with yourself somehow :)
