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.
Akali is a very fun hot champion and in my opinion one of the best burst damage champion in the game. With her extremely high damage output you can kill squishy target in a few seconds. Akali is a great top solo lane champions and also a good mid champion. With shes high damage early game you can totally dominate your lane if you play her right. You need her passive to be strong and with the runes you can activate both.
Pros / Cons
- Extremely fun champion
- Great Solo/mid champion
- Deals a tons of burst damage
- Got great chasing/escape abilities
- Hot ninja
- Once you played her you can't stop
- Great ganker
- very squishy champion
- Got focused alot in teamfights
- Takes a long time to master this champions with her great abilities
Upon obtaining 19.5 additional ability power, Akali's hits deal 10% bonus magic damage, increasing by 1% for every 5 ability power gained thereafter.
Upon obtaining 9.5 additional attack damage, Akali gains 10% Spell Vamp, increasing by an additional 1% for every 10 attack damage gained thereafter.
This passive makes her abilities do alot more damage and with AP runes + 3/3 Archmage's Savvy + AD runes + 3/3 Brute Force you will be able to activate both her passives.
Mark of The Assasin You should max this ASAP because it is your main source of your damage. You can harass with this and also finish your kills with it.
This W is just so great for Akali. It has so many ways to use it. It can be your escape ability. You can also use this to slow your enemies to finish up your kill. You can also use this to scare off the enemy. Learn this spell and love it then you will be a pro akali player for sure !
Crescent This is her AoE ability. You can use it to farm minions and to max your burst damage.
Now we have come to the fun part , her ultimate ^_^. You can chase your enemies with this and also to use it on enemies minions to escape. It has 3 charges and got low cd so you can use it often. Remember it has long range and low CD so don't be scared to use it. Important to learn this technique both to chase your enemies and escape from them.
General gameplay tips
1v1 laning combo
Start if with last hit minions , when you hit lvl 2 you can start to harass abit with your Q and W abilities. Once you hit lvl 6 I can almost guarantee you a kill.
The combo is: Mark of The Assasin + (wait for CD) + Shadow Dance + (auto hit) + Mark of The Assasin + (auto hit) + Ignite if its needed.
( this combo doesent work so good in teamfights )
Teamfights Your job in teamfights its to take out the squishy champions.
Teamfight Combo: Shadow Dance + Mark of The Assasin + (auto hit) + Crescent Slash Most general combo.
Generally, you can use combos out of these orders because situations sometimes vary. Also, using W to slow down enemies before initiating can be sometimes good (don't waste if you're prone to a gank), but you shouldn't use it if you already have Rylai's because that provides enough Slow Effects for you to catch up. Using Ignite (if it's up) before a full combo is best, because you get the extra 10 AP from your masteries, and thats more damage output to your combo.
Im not saying that im the best akali and that im a pro. Akali is my main champion and I just wanna show you guys the way I play akali. And test this guide before downvote it.
