Honestly, one of my favorite champs to play. Very mobile with huge outplay potential! I'm currently ranked Grandmasters and hit Challenger in both S10 and 11 :) I have had a 75% wr on Akali with over 40 games on my Grandmaster account (it's abit lower now since I went on a huge troll streak lol) Make sure to follow my socials to get the latest/upcoming content!

If you do have any questions about Akali, make sure to let me know! I stream pretty often on Twitch so drop by and ask!

If the guide was any helpful to you, a thumbs up vote would be great! I hope you'll enjoy my guide just as much as I enjoyed creating it. Remember, the only way to get better is to practice!

NOTE: I'll explain why you should take each rune and when to take something else. If something is unclear or you have a question, you can always let me know (via Twitch livestream, comment section, etc..) and I'll get back to you ASAP.

Electrocute Setup

Conqueror Setup

Doran's Ring + two Health Potion: Just a great starting item. Gives you mana and more minion damage (which is really helpful. It took me some time to get used to last hitting).
Corrupting Potion: If you want to play very aggressive, meaning if the enemy jungle is playing something like Karthus or Shyvana that perma farms, then taking Corrupting Potion can be nice to win the early trades.
Luden's Tempest: Great item if you're up against very squishy enemies. I've heard people talking about building Everfrost for the extra root, but I feel like your passive Doom 'n Gloom already does a great job of peeling yourself if the enemy tries to dash onto you. If the enemy runs at you, Phase Rush would be helpful.
Riftmaker: If you're against tanks and bruisers, building Riftmaker will allow you do extra damage and be alittle more tankier to cycle out your abilities. If you want to be fancy, you could go for Hextech Rocketbelt, but you will run into mana problems if you don't "ration" your mana.
Sorcerer's Shoes: Build Sorcerer's Shoes if you built Luden's Tempest. Gives you extra burst damage.
Plated Steelcaps: If you went for the Riftmaker route, I heavily suggest you to build a defensive boot type. This ensures that you won't get 1 shot and allows you to survive a bit longer for your passive to come back up. Ionian Boots of Lucidity is also a great choice if the enemies don't have heavy burst.
Mercury's Treads: This is great against heavy cc or ap comps. Very effective versus champs like Cassiopeia, Syndra, Leona, etc...
Zhonya's Hourglass: This item can really turn a fight around. When used correctly, you can use Zhonya's Hourglass just to stall for your passive to come up and then fear everyone away. Wouldn't recommend building this 2nd item if you went for the Luden's Tempest build.
Void Staff: If people are starting to build magic resist, then start to build Void Staff for your third item. Gives a lot of magic resist penetration and a decent amount of AP. If your team doesn't have grevious wounds, then you can build Morellonomicon for your 3rd item.

Horizon Focus: Horizon Focus works really well with your Q, E and R. Not only hitting your Q, E and R reveals the enemy, it also increases your damage dealt to them for 6 seconds! If there are no burst damage and you went for the Luden's Tempest build, then build Horizon Focus second.
Cosmic Drive: This item makes you tankier, movement speed AND ability haste! Having 40 extra ability haste feels really nice as you can use your abilities often and you are prone to getting one shot with the extra 200 health.

Rabadon's Deathcap: If you aren't already one shotting enemies then building Rabadon's Deathcap will take your damage to a whole different level :)

Having Flash is crucial since you don't have any dashes to escape. You can also use Flash or cancel your R2 Shadow Surge.
I would take Ignite for the early solo kills and better 2 v 2s. However, if you feel like you can't kill the enemy opponent, then taking Teleport can work too.
