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, this is my first guide on mobafire, i hope you enjoy. Please comment and give ideas for future builds. Akali is currently my favorite champion, she can nuke and have great survivability with this build. This build will have you proccing the two unique passives right as you buy your first item, this works exceptionally well, and i advise anyone looking to try out akali builds to try this one, i have had massive success with it. Thank you and have fun reading this guide. P.S- Try it out before you downvote please :)
First off on the runes, you will want to go with 3 Greater Quints of Potency for 14.85 ap when you start. As for glyphs you want to go 9 greater glyph of potency, so you ap will be well over 20, proccing one of the two unique passives, akali has. For marks go 9 greater mark of insights so your abilites will penetrate magic resistance, which concludes in more dmg. Last but not least, you need 9 greater seal of fortitude for the survivability at the beginning of the game.. You're pretty squishy
Your masteries should be somewhat like this, with the masteries in defense for survivability, and the extra ap and ad. You go 1 point into utility because your going to need ghost alot for escapability or for chasing, this point is highly recommended.
For farming all you have to do is use crescent slash in huge waves of minions over and over again, if your low health with the spell vamp you have you will recover health quickly and do some good aoe dmg as well. If it is the bigger minions, use mark of the assassin and auto attk to get last hits on it. But make sure you get last hits, it is very important for the gold $$$$$$$$$$
Ok so the order in which you will cast your spells when you go 1v1 is jump at them with your ult shadow dance, it has 3 charges so use them wisely. Lay down Twilight shroud, Mark them with the mark of the assassin,basic attack, use crescent slash, jump at them again with shadow dance, mark of the assassin once more, then basic attack. Use exhaust when u think its needed, and just keep jumping on them with shadow dance when they try to run. Your Spell vamp is around 30% if your lvl 6 and have the hextech revolver so dont be afraid to 1v1. Also be sure to do this sequence when popping in and out of twilight shroud, it reduces dmg and allows energy to regen and cd's to decrease for your next attk .. while your taking no damage
Ok for multiple enemies/team fights, be sure to not engage. this will end badly let a tank or a off tank go in first... what your job is, is to take out the squishy dps, so do just that. After the fight has started, the enemy team is focusing everybody else... jump in with shadow dance and dps the **** out of their dps focusing your allies. They wont know what hit them, just use the same combo as above and you should do fine. Be sure to wait a second before before marking the target again so u can stealth till mark cd is ready, this way you reduce dmg and increase your max dmg output.
For summoner spell i usually tend going Exhaust and Ghost, you always need an escape so try to get ghost or flash, its your choice, but the masteries that are set help with ghost, so i generally go towards taht.
High burst damage
Late/mid game dominance
Able to chase down champs easy with your ult
Good survivabiltiy and life steal/spell vamp
akali is a ninja
if you are doing well at the beginning of the game, you pretty much wreck the whole game
Twilight shroud can counter tryn ult if used at the right time
Squishy at first
Is able to take out squishies very easily, but tanks it takes awhile
if not played right, sucks.
People hate you, because of how beast you are!! XD
Thank you for reading my guide, make comments on what i could of done better. Thank you, i hope you enjoy your time as akali :)
