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 guide will be about how to corectly play akali. In my personal opinion akali is a quick burst champ which should focus squshies like ashe, miss fortune, anivia etc... Akali should be always play top solo in ranked games so she has the advatage of the brush mid is fine but u wont be so agresive as in top beacous u q then you hit and run in the bushes. This is my first guide so dont be hard on me please :) .
Runes and masteries
Runes and masteries should activete both your pasives i chose these runes for this but u can also use ap per level runes so you have your second pasive on lvl 3. but your first pasive should be active from the beginin from the game beacous it give u the lane sustainability u need for early game.
Okay this is the main reason why i did this guide. So you start with bots and 3 health potions.
You haras your enemy with your q spell beacous of your mobility beaocus of your bots you always try to proc the second efect for maximum damage. If your enemy is more sustainable like Irelia, ,Xin, Chogath try getting a kill early on or try to keep them from the creeps so they cant heal back, you should do it like this but remeber if you are going to do this try always having a ward so you dont get ganked u stay in the last bush and keep throwing q at them so you keep them from creeps if they stay back free farm with your basic atack you should find it easyier to farm beacous you got +10 ad damage from runes and masteries so only use q to haras your enemy except if u need to heal bac fast.
Like i already said first you get boots and health potions. You farm on your lane then when you first recall you should get hextech revolver so you will be prtey much unstobaple on your lane.
Next on we have rylas crystal scepter or rabadon i prefer rabadon first beacous u already got spell wamp but if youre in a lot of trouble top u can always go giants belt first that you are a bit more tanky then go on rabadon. Next we got void staff or abysal scepter these items are so you have magic penetration if their team doesent buy magic resist u can go on abysal but if they mass magic resist you go on void staff. I usualy go on voidstaff beacous akali is bound to get fed beacous she can kill steal so easy and has a strong mid game.
As akali you should always be behind your team beacous you have got a lot of range with your ulti and you should use that but never i really mean never engage a fight if you are 5v5 in late game let some stun engage then you go after the caries. You should usualy go after the ad carries beacous Ap caries just do the burst then just run away but ad caries can constatnly do damage.
Using your ulti properly
If you are in a situation where u have overextended or something its a good thing to know that you can use your ulti on creps for instance you are runing from 4 champions ask your suport for cvs so you can easily use your ulti on neutral creeps if that isnt possibel then try this but this is situational you see alistar aproaching you but behind him you see miss fortune you can dash to her and avoid being stun by alistar but be awear there can always be some behind miss fortune. All im trying to say in this chapter is that you should use your ulti ofensive also not only for damage.
