Running Akali

This build is universally useful, but all strategies are written for 3v3 matches and assuming you are able to solo a lane.

EARLY GAME: Open with an Amplifying Tome and build it to a Rylai's. Harass with q and stay alive until you have anywhere from 860 - 2500 gold to get Blasting Wand, Giant's Belt, or go straight to Rylai's Crystal Scepter. Immediately begin work on Rabadon's. You will have both passives proced from the start; the 10% spell vamp should help with lane longevity.

1v1 tip: Harass and beware of ganks. They will happen, use W and exhaust to escape as necessary. Play the towers.

1v2 tip: A bit trickier earlygame. Focus on one person with harassment; get them as low as possible and score a kill when they get too careless. In 1v2, keep in mind they're pulling half XP while you get full XP for every kill. You will get them later.

MID GAME: Once you have Rabadon's you should be a ganking machine. Whoever you're laning against can be rushed and dropped the moment they get careless, until then just keep harassment up. Run to the other lane to gank and let them push occasionally. If you are running 1v2, you should be able to rack up kills pretty easily at this point. Consider replacing Hextech Gunblade with Mejai's Soulstealer if you wish.

LATE GAME: With Lich Bane, slaughtering buildings and groups of 1-2 champs should be very easy; your full Q combo will deal in excess of 1000 damage by itself. Use W and E to proc Lich Bane and smash towers and inhibitors, then their nexus when you get a chance.

-The skill sequence will vary, but taking Q at level one to harass is a must. From there, get E then W, then alternate Q, E and R until maxed. W will be your last dump skill.

-The Hextech Gunblade is an optional item, if more lifesteal/spell vamp is deemed necessary. With Lich Bane, you will pool massive amounts of HP from basically everything you do.

-Warmog's is a lategame only item for this build, typically you will be done long before you get it.

-Most games end around the time i get Lich Bane, at which time i have approx. 416 AP.

-Rune build triggers passive.

-Actual AP will be closer to 500 due to the +30% AP from Rabadon's Deathcap.
