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.
Hi! I am a decent Akali player if I say so my self. I just love her and she is one of my favourite champions. This is my first guide so don´t expect much from it and I am from Sweden so my english isn´t the best. Plus that I am 14 years old but I hope that you don´t think just because im a kid this guide isn´t good.
Rwin Disciplines:Your passive. This passiv have two effects depending on how much AP and AD you have. The first one scales with AP and the more you have the more each hit deals (bonus magic dmg and it starts at 20 AP). The second one scales with AD and gives you more Spell Wamp (starts at 10 AD). With these Runes and Masteries you should have both ready at lvl 1.
Mark of the Assassin:This is your main dmg and is what you are going to max first. It has a burst dmg at low lvls if you get a hit on your opponent when they have the mark on them. It is one of the the spells that has the most dmg at lvl 1. The spell has shorther cooldown then the marks so that makes up for som amazing combos.
Twilight Shroud:This is your stealth ability and your only cc (exept if you have Rylai´s Crystal Scepter). When you are in it you are invisible until you either go away form it or do an auto attack or spell. It´s great for escaping or if you are going to face check a bush. In a team fight you generally want to go in, use and burst down their ADC, then get stealth again and burst down others.
Cresent Slash:This is your only AoE ability whick is great for farming and has loonger range then your auto attacks. I would avoid to use in team fights sence it drains so much energy.
Shadow Dance:Your ultimate, this lets you dash to an opponent and dmg them a little. You can have max there atack of it and it regenerate pretty slowly at lvl 6 but pretty fast at 16. She gets a stack for every kill or assists so don´t hessitate if your for exemple going to turret dive and you only have one stack and if you know you can kill him.
So you want to use your Q and let the cooldown run out then jump on your enemy and autoattack once then use your W and then your Q again and another autoattack or an E. And if they don´t die just Jump on them again and to the combo again.
In the begging you want to farma as much as possible and use your Q if you see that there is a creep that is to far away from you and use your E as well sence it´s best used in taking creeps ( in my oppinion)
Pros / Cons
+ alot of burst dmg at low lvls
+ can be invisble
+ has a jump ability
+ has a AoE ability
- don´t have much CC
- CC rapes her
- True sight rapes her as well.
Akali is not much before lvl 6 sure she has her Q but she doesn´t have much mobility to get her Q´s full potential dmg. But she can pretty much lane un interupted just becasue she got her E and that´s a great waay to get away for ganks (if it´s not someone like lee sin or someone that can use his abliltys to see you). When she hits lvl 6 you should go back get some items and then when you are back you will probably have full stacks of your ulti. With that you can burst down most mid laners exept for them with blink abilitys or if they are just tank( then you should poke them down with your Q ability). When you have gotten some kills you should probably ganks other lanes if they have a rough time.
In Team Fights you want to jump on their ADC or someone fed, burst them down and use your E to be invisible and to wait for your cooldowns, then just burst someone toher down or finish the one you where aiming at. Remember to be invisble when you don´t have your abilities up becasue CC really breaks her.
I hope this was a good guide as I said it is my first and it will have some grammar misstakes but i hope you liked it and leave some responces on what i can inprove.
Good Bye! ^^
