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.
This is my first build but i love Akali this build has NEVER failed me it is better in solo but if your on bottom lane just play little less aggressive then you usually would (she is cc able) comment rate and rip em a new one =) I have always gotten a surrender i rarely get to play a full game with her.
Akali, can and in my opinion she is one of the most op champs I have ever played shes not hard to play but i have how ever seen my fair share of Akali players that don't do so well themselves.
These runes, activate both disciplines off the start and to me is a great way to stay alive while soloing pretty self explanatory if you look at them. I am sure you can tweek them to better fit your play style but for me these work great especially the health per level seals =)
The reason I have all 30 in Offense is because shes hybrid so this maxes both worlds. helps activate your disciplines adds the magic pen and armor pen not given by runes.
These also are simple, majis .... love it would never play Akali without it.. this gives me the ability to get ability power WHILE being able to build Lich Bane then moving to high AP items Lich Bane is a BIG part of this build. the majis since ull be getting stacks constantly updating Lich Bane =) Rabadon's Deathcap also jumps the LB damage I don't worry about building Hextech Gunblade fully till end bc usually Hextech Revolver is good enough to keep u alive.
I excel the best AFTER level 2 when u get shroud rest is self explanatory. If your worried your enemies can kill you I like to jump in mark firs,t Shadow Dance, Crescent Slash, Shroud, then I go to finish the kill (late game to end game you shouldnt have to worry about this because you will burst them fast enough they'll start running insteada fighting you
I use surge and ignite mainly for the AP and the attack speed to hit your marked target faster after shadow dancing, but flash also is my second best spell because it helps u juke alot of people in shroud ( lay shroud in mid of lane so its not IN the bush but close enough u can either flash into the bush or just walk out this throws SO many people off. also i like to play aggressive on her so i like to jump into the turret if they low enough (judge your burst and their ability to cc u before u can jump in and one shot em) and flash right back out nearly unharmed.
Pros / Cons
INSANE burst damage
greatest solo char I've played
when i play i always get a surrender by 15
People tend to run from u... worst mistake ever... if they run.... u go
feared by almost everyone so she becomes the main target easily
Oracles (enough said on this one)
.... U have spell vamp use mark often if your enemy is either not their of afraid of u and u can manage its got a short CD so usually not a problem i only use Crescent Slash if no1s there and there is a couple minons within a 1 shot kill of it
