Introduction



Hello! Welcome to my Akali Jungle Guide. I'm fairly new to Akali jungle, but I do believe that this build is fairly strong and snowballs incredibly hard. I hope you learn a thing or two from this guide and have as much fun as I do on Akali!

Masteries



Option #1
This is the masteries I usually play by as, I have had the most success with it. It gives good defensive stats, summoner spell CD reduction, and Strength of the Ages gives a good 300 health usually before the 20 minute mark.


Option #2
This is not the one I usually go, but it does give you a bit more burst with Thunderlord's Decree. I would only go this against games I knew I would snowball easily.

Summoner Spells


Smite is a no-brainer.

Flash is usually what I go. Provides mobility and can safe you in alot of situations

Exhaust is viable if you think you're going to have trouble killing someone.

Ganking



Pre-6


You can easily force a flash or even get a kill before six. You will need to have your W first. Preferably you would like to be behind them, pop your W behind them so it slows them, and speed you up. This is 10x easier if you laner has CC to postpone his escape a couple seconds.

Post-6
This is where Akali's ganks really shine. She has 3 charges on it (max) and you can stick to opponents super easily and it is really annoying to play against. Especially when you have max level "E" and Rylai's

Jungle Route



Blue Side Start
You wan't to start Krugs because the stun smite buff helps a lot throughout your early clear
Krugs>Red>Top Side Scuttlecrab>Blue Buff>Wolves

Red Side Start
This is the same as Blue Side start except you switch the sides.
Krugs>Red>Bot Side Scuttlecrab>Blue Buff>Wolves

Team Fighting


Your job in team fights is to occupy their back-line and do as much damage as you can. As soon as you feel you have done enough damage, make sure to use your W.

You can also play peel for your own backline. Once you have Rylai's Crystal Scepter, you can use E as a slow to help your ADC kite the frontline back.

As soon as I get the time to, I will put videos up showing examples of these.

Conclusion



Thank you for taking the time to read my guide! As time goes on, I will add more and more details and try to make this the best guide possible!

Make sure to tune into my streams if you found this guide helpful. I stream every weekday from 4pm to 8pm EST. I teach Akali jungle more in-depth there.
