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.
This is my jungle Akali build. so why did i start jungleing as Akali?
Well i jungled as Shaco and Udyr but i liked to play as Akali.
so i thought that mabe i would try jungleing as Akali since i liked jungleing.
i like Akali + i like jungle should = I realy like jungle Akali... right?
well supriseingly my first non bot game when well(if 39/6/12 penta and legendary on 2 lives is "going well") so i tryed it again and bought runes for it and made a mastery page.
Pros / Cons
*At lvl 6 is a GREAT ganker (cus of ulti ...duh).
*As high a lvl as solo lanes if done right.
*Hard to gank in jungle (becuse can escape with shroud).
*If u dont have the right masteries and rune can mean death at red or blue buff.
*dosn't have a good slow to stop the person your ganking(until Hextexh gunblade) form running away.
*CC will kill you.
Start at golems get a leash if you can (don't smite them).
Go to red buff and smite right when smite is in range(some times i only have 100 hp left)
Go to wraiths (remember you can ignore a creep if it has very low hp red buff will finish it).
Go to wolves.
Go to blue buff and smite right when smite is in range (smite should be off CD now).
Go back to wraiths
go back to golems
Recall and get Amplifiing tome
As you jungle remember not to spam cresent slash to much it uses to much energy.
Always use Mark of the assassin as fast as you can.
Always take out bigest target first (red buff,big wolve,big gleom, ect..)
(sell armor if it will let u buy Hextech revolver the spell vamp is better than the 18 armor for jungleing)
there not much to say here.
Flat AD to activate passive
you can change out the CD per lvl glyphs to Magic pen or almost what ever you want as long as its good on akali there not too important to this build.
I get cool down per lvl becuse it helps late game fights
AD to activate passive
Defence so you don't get kill by jungle
*Cloth armor: ... well duh your jungleing
*Hextech: for sustain in jungle
*Boots of magic pen: you do magic dammage. but you could do merc treds becuse "CC kills you".
*Hextech gunblade: In my opinion this is THE BEST item for akali. AP, sustain, and a much needed slow
*Rylins: This is also great on akali AP, HP, and again more slow.
*Lichbane: i like this becuse it gives you the edge on movespeed and makes your basic attack super powerfull.
*death cap:MORE AP MUAHAHAHAHA!
*this item slot is for whatever you see fit,if the enemy is getting MR get a void staff. if you didnt get Merc treds and are now regeting it, get spellflare moonblade. if they have to much AP get abyssal scepter. and so on ... (peferabley an item with AP) also will of the ancients is a good chioce for the spell vamp.
