Introduction

Okay. First off. I have read, many, many, builds for Akali. I have taken in some knowledge from all of them. And I have ultimately decided to make my own guide to The Fist of Shadow herself.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pros
-Awesome Nuking
-Awesome Ganking
-Great support
-Takes down turrets fast
-Drop an opponent before they will even cast a spell
-Easily capable of 3v1 if you juke and use your shroud to your advantage.

Cons
-Somewhat squishy
-Will get owned if you try to take on two tanks at once


Thats all.

Rune Choice

The reason for this is simple. Starting out with both disciplines triggered.
Reasons for this.

- Easy easy easy first blood if someone face checks the lanes bushes in the first minute.

Exhaust > Ignite > Q > Attack > Q Again if necessary.

Masteries

Masteries are a little off from what you would normally see. But I love her this way. She is very beneficial from the defense tree, but also gains key elements from offensive.

1. Extra armor and magic resist. Yum.

2. Extra health. Yum.

3. 4% Attack Speed and Ability Power. Yum some more.

4. 10 Ability power after using ignite. Yummy.

5. Cripple = yum. And helps a lot with that first blood =P

6. 3% reduced Cooldowns. Yum.

7. My favorite part...And the one that fills me up with all the yummies. 15% spell penetration. YUM YUM.

Items

The items are pretty straight forward. Buy them in order. Or, keep Deathcap and Revolver until the end. Your choice. But I like to get them early on because lets be fair....Some games don't last long enough to get them. But trust me, if you are good and master Akali, you will be fed. And eventually get full. =P

Skill Sequence

Pretty straight forward. You want to max out Mark ASAP.

After that, Shadow > Crescent.

Then finish off Shroud.

Now. For the most burst damage. This is what I do. In Key terms.

Q -> R -> Attack -> E -> W -> Q Pursue if necessary.
