Welcome,To one,OF THE BADASS BUILD
Season 1:ChargeEpisode 2:Slow,Tanky,DPS-AP Akali
Hi guyz,i think you know me from my shaco build!:D today i will show u a 5 stars akali with defense and offense and ofc SLOW!
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 prodigious 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."

The Mark of the Assassin buff lasts longer than the cooldown, allowing Akali to cast a Mark of the Assassin followed by Shadow Dance. Finishing with another Mark of the Assassin allows for extremely high bursts of damage.
Due to the low cooldowns of Akali's abilities, the constant usage of Mark of the Assassin can easily make sure her energy issues are dealt with. This also applies to healing early game, due to her innate spell vamp.
The movement speed reduction of Twilight Shroud can be used offensively to provide cover and to allow her to chain skill combos on the enemy more quickly, but it can also be used defensively to prevent drawing enemy focus during team fights and to provide aid in retreating after a team fight or running from a gank.
Twilight Shroud is great for running from enemies in the jungle, especially near a brush, and can also be used for checking brushes for enemies as the stealth allows you to check the brush effectively without getting caught.
Using Twilight Shroud followed by Flash to go over a wall can effectively confuse enemies and following up with a Shadow Dance will create distance between enemies in pursuit allowing an easy escape.
Crescent Slash is great for farming gold by last hitting enemies with it and pushing lanes as it deals aoe damage.
Once you hit your first 3 stacks of Shadow Dance, look around the map for an easy gank. This is the time where Akali starts to truly shine.
If an enemy is too far from your range, you can use Shadow Dance onto a hostile minion to "bounce" from them, allowing you to get closer to your target.
