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.
WHY YOU SHOULD TRY OUT AKALI!!!!
Alright fellow LEAGUE players, I will enlighten you to the shadow arts. Akali is a high burst CHAMP(by that i mean she cant be stopped). MOSt of the times you will end up killing ur target before the even gets a start on you. Akali is to be played as a highly offensive champ, so please dont bother reading this if your just gonna camp and get kills or bother farming minons.
This build will teach you how to kill without farming minions(P.S if your one of those people no offense). Now lets begin.
THE pimpish runes are not always the best. I choose attack dmg flats to trigger the passive, the way this passive works is simple at 10 attack damage you can heal from your magic attack( spell vamp) and at 20 Ability power you deal bonus damage based on percentage. Do not worry about the 20 ability power runes on level 1, just get the Amplifying tome to cover the 20 ability power. Now you will ahve both passives active on level 1. I'll add info on runes after its not that important as long as u trigger both passives.
How to play you ask? well do not think to hard just read this
Akali is a burst champ as u know so you main focus is to kill the target faster than fast.
Mark of the Assassin: ur main damage skill always keep using this in fights it does awsome dmg (it will make ur panties drop)
Twilight Shroud: Always handy if ur wanna run or scout the bushes(brush w.e u call), also this is to be used whenever you start a fight it will slow people down so you can land your right click.
Crescent Slash: This skill is a great spell vamp skill early level, and then turns into the only non target cast skill you have(other then shroud). Use it if you feel that there are invisible champs near you it will do the trick.
GODLY ult ->>>>Shadow Dance<<<<- : BY far the best chasing skill in the game, it will make sure that ur target doesn't run away while leaving a trail of piss(instead it will make your target leave blood). It works super well with rylais(always get rylais second item on the list).
ON level 6 your skill combo shud be like this(ALWAYS WAIT for 3 essence of shadow, if you are not fed)
Start your skill combo with: Q -> R -> W -> Right click -> Q -> E -> Right click -> if target runs chase him with R and repeat the combo
NOW YOU ARE ALL SET ;)
if you have any questions, feel free to ask away.
I will add scores from my games.
This build be getting upgraded as time progresses.
