Intro

Akali is a pretty easy champion to play none the less. I find it best to use your Q on a minion and wait for it to get low and then last hit it. Just a way of getting easier farm sometimes. If you are getting bullied at middle/bot/top stay by the minions using your shroud.

Runes

Runes are pretty good. You could go for magic resist if you wanted to instead ap. Other than that the magic penetration is need imo early game a lot. And the cd is for your Q. The quintessences are there because most people will rush hexblade for the spellvamp although with those you won't need it as much.

Masteries

The masteries I made are a mix of ad/ap. You could go utility on some things but I find it easier without it.

Items

you could rush mejais first instead and then get boots but you have to count on ganks or whether you can get a kill or not. Personally boots/3hp pots are the best to go since you are not exactly ranged if you go mid/bot and could be difficult.

You could also rush hexblade into boots which work fine.

Summoner Spells

Spells are pretty simple. Exhaust for reduced magic resist/armor. And flash to juke when you are cornered in your shroud or just need to get out. Teleport/flash is also good if you are mid.
Don't need ghost unless you are using it to run away because your ult should be used to catch up to champions.

Pros/Cons

Pros
- Great at solo/ganks.
- Great escape mechanisms.
- Has okay survivability with spellvamp.
- Does plenty of burst damage.
- Easily can get farm.
- If you die its simple to get back even.
Cons
- Sometimes focused a lot in team battles and might have to go in last.

Summary

That basically sums it all up. Akali is a huge burst damage with some survivability.


She does have some counters
Lee Sin, Garen, Renekton, Rumble, Lulu,
Sion, Riven, Pantheon, Talon.

But strong against
Karthus, Fiora, Fizz, Teemo, Irelia,
Kog'Maw, Ahri, Vladimir, Twisted Fate,
And Warwick.



This is also my first good so please give some constructive criticism please.
