Akaly's Story

__ There exists an ancient order originating in the Ionian Isles dedicated to the preservation of balance. Order, chaos, light, darkness -- all things must exist in perfect harmony for such is the way of the universe. This order is known as the Kinkou and it employs a triumvirate of shadow warriors to uphold its causes in the world. Akali is one of these shadow warriors, entrusted with the sacred duty of Pruning the Tree - eliminating those who threaten the equilibrium of Valoran.

A prodigal martial artist, Akali began training with her mother as soon as she could make a fist. Her mother's discipline was relentless and unforgiving, but predicated on the fundamental principle: ''We do that which must be done.'' When the Kinkou inducted her into the order at the age of fourteen, she could slice a dangling chain with a chop of her hand. There was no question - she would succeed her mother as the Fist of Shadow. She has had to do much in this role which others might find morally questionable, but to her it is in service of her mother's inviolable doctrine. She now works with her fellows Shen and Kennen to enforce the balance of Valoran. This hallowed pursuit has unsurprisingly led the triumvirate to the Fields of Justice.

''The Fist of Shadow strikes from the cover of death itself. Do not impede the balance.''

Abilities

Skill Priority

** Mark of the Assassin is a very important skill for this champion. In combination with Shadow Dance you will done a incredibility damage. Addition you can use this spell to farm. In team fight or 1vs1 extremely important to hit the enemy after you use this spell on them. You can do this very easily with Shadow Dance. I recommend you to start a fight with this spell because he have a low cooldown and he restore your energy when you hit the enemy. **

** This is a very important skill. You can use them to escape or to help your them to catch an enemy. Addition into the circle you have more armor/magic resist and the enemy can't see you without ward or oracle.
Look at this video to learn you to use Twilight Shroud
**
**
Good skill to give more damage on the enemy and to farm the minion. When you attack the turret you can use this skill to active Sheen passive and give more damage.
**

** Shadow Dance is a awesome skill. Is very good in combination with Mark of the Assassin and Crescent Slash, this combo deal a very high DPS. I suggest you do don't spam this skill, because you have max. 3 essence of shadow, so use them when the enemy try to escape. **
** With Twin Disciplines you can increase your spell vamp and magic damage. That passive can help you to survive more time. With 8% spell vamp you can restore easily your HP and with magic damage you own the lane. **

Team Fight & Counter Champions

In team fight your role is to harass the enemy. You become with Mark of the Assassin and Shadow Dance. I recommend to put Twilight Shroud because if you are in his area he will increase you armor and magic resist, addition the enemy can't see you. Don't forget, if one enemy have Oracle's Elixir all enemy team will can see you in Twilight Shroud. In this case you can use this skill to slow the enemy or to help your team to escape.

It's very important which enemy is focus. In team fight is very important to don't target the tank. First time you need to kill AD carry or the enemy with a very high damage and squishy(e.g. LeBlanc, Veigar...).

Mid Lane



Solo top

  • Stay back and try to survive as much possible. Don't forget to say SS and put sight ward/ Vision Ward to prevent a eventually gang.

  • Buy Health Potion & Hextech Revolver to restore more easily your HP and survive more time.
