YellowGreater Seal of Fortitude - Health + 48.15
Blue Greater Glyph of Potency - Ability Power + 8.91
QuintessenceGreater Quintessence of potency x3 - 14.85 ability_power
-The best "anti carry" in the game.
-Excellent at minion kills later game
-Best middle lane or solo lane
-Highest burst damage known to mankind
-So very squishaayyyyy
-Oracles makes you even more kill able than twitch in certain situations.
I personally would recommend teleport and exhaust. You can also use flash and exhaust both are good and depends on your game style on what you like.
Flash allows you to get out of some very risky situations with your twilight shroud/ tower jumping.
Ignite can be useful for pulling those few hp runners off but i find other summoner spells more useful to Akali.
Start out with getting a longsword and health potion. This will allow you to activate both of the twin disciplines from your passive right off the gecko. 10% more magic dmg AND 10% spell steal. Thats a scary level one. Keep stealing minion kills with your Q spell and when you have accumulated 1550 gold head back to base. Purchase yourHextech Revolver. Now you will be rocking roughly 20% spell vamp. Even Morgana should be scared. After quickly getting your boots sorcerers shoes, which with your masteries and runes your rocking some serious spell penetration. After your boots, start and finish your rylais crystal scepter. You will notice some enemy champions are getting stronger than you at this point so finish your scepter fast and their strength will be short lived. After your rylais you should be upto par with most of the enemy champions in strength. This will also cease them from running. Next buy a sheen to up your damage. Then finish your Gunblade. After the Gunblade your build is pretty generic.
Core Item BuildI purchase this because of its hybrid boosting capabilities and the item usage is pretty awesome. There isnt much better than a free movement slow.I Choose rylais cause of the constant slow, an enemy getting away? Ultimate them and they wont be running so fast from you this time! Also the hp is a HUGE plus.Lich bane is quite possibly one of my favorite items for her. If you watch the cooldown carefully and learn the timing this will add so much burst to this little assassin. Also the movement speed is such a plus.This item is so cheap and adds so much greatness!This item is something i think is amazing for Akali. I build her is as hybrid but heavy AP. This item not only gives you 25% more AP but its item effect allows you to open many doors when a gank turned into disaster. I've been saved on Akali with this item on so many occasions.
-When laning after level 6 land your Q and follow it by a R and run back...this harassment HURTS and will allow the cocky to be killed much easier.
-Spell Rotation give or take - Q,R,W,E,Q,R rinse repeat or run if it aint happening.,
-REMEMBER ENERGY mana golem can be a HUGE dps increase.
-Akali Is VERY squishy so try to remember this as you harrass. The way i do it is in and out(no puns please) Q,R them then bounce the hell out. You'll get the kill be patient.
-Your stealth thing does SLOW them quite a bit. Use this to juke the less intelligent.
- When being chased you can ult to a distant enemy minion for a quick juke.
-The above tip also applies to tower diving.
I personally don't agree with snowballing on Akali. Shes a stable and consistent assassin. If you snowball and the game goes just wrong for you; your then useless.
Before you bash or down comment give this build a couple games...just cause you sux doesn't mean my build does. Akali takes practice and ALOT of it. I am open for suggestions and productive arguments.
Also before i got good with Akali i used HEATS guide to get me started. So some credits goto HEAT on mobafire!
