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.
Hello everybody,this is my first build on mobafire so please leave constructive criticism.
And for my first guide it's about my main Akali, the ***** of shadows. I've been looking around the guides on akali and their good but i think mine will help a bit more for people who want to do good damage, but it's my personal preference and you can play her how you like but this how i play her, hope you enjoy my guide.
Magic pen reds
Health per level yellows
Ability power blues
Ability power quints
I choose these runes for Akali's double passive to come into effect because the speed from starting with boots it'll help to catch up to people to proc your Q plus the crazy damage when you proc your Q on enemy champions will help to get first blood.
When you have your Q at the beginning you just want to use to poke or to last hit minions.
When you have your W you just want to plant over minions to scare off enemys or to slow them when running away.
Your E can be used after you R to get extra damage.
And your ultimate you should use after your Q to get get damage proc from passives and sheen.
At the beginning of the game you should have both of your passives from runes and mysteries, so all you will need to buy will be boots and 3 health pots
At the beginning you need to use your Q to poke enemy champs and last hit minions, and when you get your W you should be able to play a bit more aggressive. But the key is to wait until you get your ultimate to really do some damage after you hit your Q on them.
Once you get your ultimate you should be looking to gank.
Mid game you should be bursting down squishys with Akalis' combos because Akali has a great burst mid game.
In teamfights you shouldn't go in face first because you can die very fast with alot of CC.
Mid to late game to enemy team might be buying oracles so try and take them down first.
In lategame you should be trying to be pick off the ap & ad carries becasue they're doing the most damage and being the anti-carry its your job to take them out.
If you get this far in the game you should have your guardian angel and be trying to get the carries and then finishing your build and bursting down anyone you see.
Tips & tricks
During laning and you get your ultimate always hit with your Q and then proc with your ultimate this should do a tonne of damge so also try and use E Q and R again.
A good thing with her W. I was a game against a xin and he bought a oracle and we got into a 1v1 so i thew down my W for the MR and Armour and so i Q him R,E,Q,R and hes dead thanks from the Armour from my W.
A good thing to do if your flash and W are up and your getting chased put down your bubble get in it if you cant run and flash to the other side of the wall or just flash towards your turret.
Thank you for reading my guide i hope it serves you well. And i'll guarantee you'll love her as much as i do.
