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.
You use IGNITE AND SURGE!!!!!
Surge is NOT available on the Spell List but I needed to fill the sport and A LOT of people use Flash Anyway!
BUT IGNITE AND SURGE!
Fast Track Akali build is a new build I was curious about, and some what as a joke one night I tried out with a group of friends. After trying it, and realizing how powerful it is, I took 2 weeks of constant games trying this build out and found out that I was doing significant damage very fast as well as a obsessive amounts of life steal! So read this guide, try it out, and tell me what YOU think as fellow LoL players. Thanks!
Each section will explain all of what I am about to tell you.
Read the Item Section very carefully as well.
I have put alot of thought into why I chose these items in this order. So read carefully into why I chose these in these orders. Remember this is a late game VERY OP build so you must be patient.
Knife and Potion first. With Akali's passives, she gains LS and Spell Vamp from her abilites and attacks. 15% Attack speed help her clear minions fast and at level 2 You can harass very fast in your Twilight Shroud, because you hitting fast.
Finish your Phanton Dancer ASAP because It makes up for you not getting boots first, as well as you can Obtain Spell Penetration boots ( with Akali at the speed Swiftness boots due to Phantom Dancer) So your doing more Damage because your AP seeks through more armor.
Guinsoo's blade gives AD and AP PLUS more Attack Speed per stac ( Up to 8 stacks ). Phantom Dancer helps you get to 8 stacks IMMEDIATELY so you are at a constant 8 stacks at all times!
The Crystal Scepter gives Bonus AP and a 50% Movement Slow. With Phantom and Guinsoo's, You are staying on your enemy champs *** at all times and keeping your 8 stacks and hitting fast.
Get your Spell Pen. Boots next for Bonus MMS and Magic Pen.
Next get your Hextech Gunblade. This gives you bonus AP and AD with LIFE STEAL and Spell VAMP. With high Attack Speed, you get more Life Steal done from your basic attacks as well as a lot of extra damage done over all
Rabadon's Deathcamp....... +140 AP. Now Add all your AP and multiply it tames 0.3..... Its about an additonal 100 AP. Yea. . . Enough Said.
These items in this order work accordingly to one another and its VERY powerful late game!
I chose the Ability Power x9 Seals, x3 Quintessences and x9 glyphs for 2 reasons. 1. You start with your AP Magic Damage Buff passive as Akali. As well as a Lot of AP Early game to make up for lets say, an AP item most people would buy first! I also chose x9 Attack Damage Runes to start her off with the Life Steal Buff Passive Akali Receives!
I Chose those masteries accordingly to how the build would be fit best with it's masteries. I chose NOT to add in Critical Strike chances, I did NOT put put points into Attack Damage either! Why? Critical Damage is essential for slow hitting champs, so the few hits they get, that Crit is very important. This build will make Akali a Fast Hitting Champ. Why no Attack Damage masteries? This build is wrapped around ENEMY CHAMPION FOCUS. Your Crescent Slash is the only ability using AD in her set. I made sure, of course, that she has A LOT of Ability Power, instantly and late game with Magic Penetration and Armor Penetration.
Mark of the Assasin is her most powerful attack obviously. Level that ASAP. With Shroud level 2 for early game harass but finish it last. Crescent slash after Mark of the Assasin so you can clear minions faster, thusly getting you farther in the lane and more exp.
Pros and Cons
Very Powerful late game.
Early Game Harassment.
Speed, you are very fast. Attacks and Movement.
LOTS OF BURSTTTTTTT!!!!!
Not a Lot of Life Steal early game.
