Positives and Negatives

Positives
Mark of the Assassin now refunds 40 energy at all ranks.
Twilight Shroud is at a 1 second cool down at rank 5.
    A lot of interesting synergy with the items.
    Offers strong lane split push.
    Clearing minions with
Twilight Shroud and Sunfire Cape is really quick.
Crescent Slash with the Grasp of the Undying in lane.
    Still have good base damage.
    Very annoying to deal with.
    Plenty of AOE damage in a team fight, good stick potential and gap closer.
Negatives
    Play style is different from assassin Akali.
    Feel weak until your power spike at level 9 and with items.
    And still loses energy rather quickly.

Tips, Tricks and Rotations

Tips and Tricks
    Use
Crescent Slash to help you proc Grasp of the Undying effect.
    Use
Mark of the Assassin mainly for poke damage and energy restoration.
Crescent Slash can to see over walls slightly.
    Rank 5
Twilight Shroud has a 1 second cool down.
    You can clear waves fast with
Twilight Shroud and Sunfire Cape.
    While invisible in
Twilight Shroud, Sunfire Cape cape will still deal damage around you.
Raylai's Crystal Sceptor and Twilight Shroud slows and great for sticking on to targets.
    Main power spike is after
Twilight Shroud is rank 5 and with Bami's Cinder and Sunfire Cape.

Rotations


Mark of the Assassin- then wait- Shadow Dance- auto attack- Twilight Shroud- Mark of the Assassin- auto attack again- Twilight Shroud
    Your damage isn't that high so keep that in mind.
    Be a disputer and stick to squishier champs.


Guide Top

Abilities and Summoners

    Start with
Mark of the Assassin at level 1.
    Versus a champ top you have to play safe against, get
Crescent Slash at level 2.
    By level 3 you'll have 3 abilities.
    Max
Twilight Shroud first, put a point in Mark of the Assassin at level 8, then max out Crescent Slash
    The order is
Twilight Shroud- Crescent Slash- Mark of the Assassin- Shadow Dance
    Summoners you usually take are
Flash and Teleport.
    You can take
Ignite but it FORCES you to win lane, if you don't it's bad.

Final Verdict

Final Rating (7/10)
Good Things
    Still have decent damage.
Crescent Slash 1 second cool down works very well here.
    Using
Mark of the Assassin for Utility.
    Very durable build
    Very good AOE damage with
Twilight Shroud and Sunfire Cape.
    Strong duelist in lane.
    Fairly early power spike.
    Annoying to face when fed.

Negatives


    Still feels reliant on getting ahead in lane.
    Weak pre-level 6 still, power spike only after level 6.
Crescent Slash spam will make you run out of energy quick
    In general it don't feel like how Akali should be normally played.
