Champion's Lore



There exists an ancient order originating in the Ionian Isles dedicated to the preservation of balance. Order, chaos, light, darkness -- all things must exist in perfect harmony for such is the way of the universe. This order is known as the Kinkou and it employs a triumvirate of shadow warriors to uphold its causes in the world. is one of these shadow warriors, entrusted with the sacred duty of Pruning the Tree - eliminating those who threaten the equilibrium of Valoran.






A prodigal martial artist, began training with her mother as soon as she could make a fist. Her mother's discipline was relentless and unforgiving, but predicated on the fundamental principle: ''We do that which must be done.'' When the Kinkou inducted her into the order at the age of fourteen, she could slice a dangling chain with a chop of her hand. There was no question - she would succeed her mother as the Fist of Shadow. She has had to do much in this role which others might find morally questionable, but to her it is in service of her mother's inviolable doctrine. She now works with her fellows Shen and Kennen to enforce the balance of Valoran. This hallowed pursuit has unsurprisingly led the triumvirate to the Fields of Justice.

''The Fist of Shadow strikes from the cover of death itself. Do not impede the balance.''

Introduction





Hello everyone, I am Bronzer, and this is my Akali Tank Top guide. I have worked hard to make this guide the best I could, and I would appreciate any and all feedback that you guys may provide. Akali with this build is a high damage, yet tanky enough to survive during combat.

Without further ado, I present to you, my dear readers, my Akali guide. I put a fair amount of effort into this guide, so I do implore you to reconsider any downvotes pending the actual trial and testing of my guide that I imagine you are planning to do. And above all, thank you for taking the time to read this Akali Guide.

Masteries



With Akali, I recommend you to go for this 6/6/18 masteries.




Ferocity
- Sorcery Just some extra damage for Akali.
- Feast Since Akali is pretty weak at Early game, so Feast will help her have an easier laning phase.



Cunning
- Savagery It is easier to farm with Savagery and you may deal some extra damage on enemies.
- Assassin Most of the time, you are alone on top. So you will gain 2% extra damage.



Resolve
- Unyielding Give you 5% bonus Armor and Magic Resist.
- Tough Skin Some extra tankiness will be useful.
- Runic Armor Your healing ability from Twin Disciplines is quite impressive, so 8% bonus healing ability will come in handy.
- Insight Less cooldown on Flash and Teleport
- Legendary Guardian Cuz why not, everyone want to be a super tanker meatbag.
- Grasp of the Undying Healing like a little puzzy.

Runes

Summoner Spells



This is a common Summoner Spell for escaping from the enemies or to assaulting the enemies team. How to use it is up to you.

You are a Top Laner so Teleport is essentail for ganking and joining team fights.
Or at least you can use it to Farm or Protect Turrets.

Situational Summoner Spells ( not really recommend )


If you are facing with a high healing ability champion ( for example: Dr. Mundo, Aatrox, Xin Zhao, ... ). Ignite will be your best friend.
I, myself, prefer to use Ghost than Flash because Flash is better at escaping through terrains while Ghost is better at chasing enemies.
Just some more tankiness for you. Or you can go for Heal if you want.

Abilities




In this part, I will try to explain Akali abilities in a short way.
  • Passive Twin Disciplines: After a few seconds, you 2 next attack will have bonus effect. The first one will heal Akali. The second one deals extra damage. Good for laning and healing.
  • Q Mark of the Assassin: You throw some bullshyt at the enemie, dealing some mini damage ( not worth counting ) and mark him for 6 seconds. If you melee the marked enemy, you will deal 1 millions damage on him, garuantee a clean Kill Secured ( KS ).
  • W Twilight Shroud: You throw a Smoke Genade out, you will Flash for a short distance ( this is not included in League Wiki but I think this is true ). You move faster inside that area, slow down any enemies and if you don't attack anything, you will become invisible.
  • E Crescent Slash: You deal damage to all neary units. If it kill something, its cooldown will be restored 60%.
  • R Shadow Dance: You fly right next to the enemies, use your leg and kick the shyt out of them.

Items



With this Akali build, you should be focusing on tankiness items. So in my opnions, these items suit the Akali Tank Play Style.

This is a CORE items to Akali tank. Because, it provides you with some armor and health ( extra tankiness ) and it also help you farming much faster.
This item provides with some health and some magic resist. And it also boost your healing ability from your passive Twin Disciplines by 30%.
This item is also a CORE item for a tank Akali. Because it provides you with 450 health and it also provide you with some more damage from its base damage and its passive. Besides, its active deals a shyt ton of damage on the enemies, so why not?
When choosing boots, I usually go for this pair of Dr Martens because they suit me well.
Extra tankiness to deal with their ADC. And some slow to help escaping or chasing down the enemies.
This item helps you push turrets much faster. And it also help you maintaining your lane. Besides it gives you both armor and magic resist and some mobility which is pretty helpful.


Guide Top

Team Fights



During team fights, Akali should be the one to go first due to her tankiness and her decent damage. You should try to focus on Enemies' Carries or any squishy champions.
With you tankiness, you will be able to survive the fight, or at least deal enough damage to the enemies.
Also, try to protect your carries from the enemies as well because your damage won't be able to take down any Off-Tank or Full-Tank champions.



Guide Top

Warding The Map



This is where you and your team should use Warding Totem.
  • Yellow: Vital to protect the jungler on your team
  • Blue: For protection depending on which lane you're on
  • Red: To guard Dragon and Baron
  • Orange: In order to Counter-Jungle

Summary

Akali is an easy, yet powerful champion to play. You just need some practise and you can easily master Akali. And this is the end of my Akali Top Guide.
