[14.8] Phantasm's Challenger #1 Akshan Worldwide Guide

By PhantasmEUW
Who am I ?
Hello I am Phantasm, a 20 year old multiseason Challenger player from Germany.

I have been playing Akshan since his release and have had alot of succes playing him. I mainly play Akshan mid nowadays and am currently Challenger 1000+ lp on 2 seperate accounts, both with around 70% winrate on Akshan. My all time Peak lp was 1570lp (Rank 3) on EUW in Season 13.

I made this guide for people to learn / get better at Akshan and to have a reliable source for the current best builds.
This guide will be regularly updated whenever major changes occur and I figure stuff out.

Ever since Season 14 I have started actively streaming all my games on Twitch, so if you're interested in watching me play or have any questions concerning Akshan / midlane in general be sure to drop in :).

Early game
Akshan in the early game wants to play very agressive most of the time, trading your opponent alot with your double autos and PTA giving you windows to solokill your opponent especially when playing with Ignite. Altough it can help with snowballing alot, solokilling your lane as Akshan is absolutely not necessary. Since you're playing very agressive early and push in often, you should be going for a ward at enemy raptor around 1:23 every game, example below.

Simply denying them CS and pushing waves in while staying healthy yourself can lead to completely snowballing the game for your team, as you are EXTREMELY strong in skirmishes with your team due to having very high damage and your E resetting.
Therefore if you just stay healthy enough over your opponent and keep pushing, you should get plenty of opportunities to go for plays with your jungler or roam to other lanes.
Early game ward !

!!Place this at around 1:23 every game!!
This ward gives you alot of freedom to play agressive as you will see when the enemy jungler switches sides, allowing you to always hover the opposite side of where the enemy Jungler is. For example when you see him walk from Topside through the ward to Botside, you can now hover Topside side since you know the Jungler is now on the opposite side.

As a general rule especially if you often die to ganks you should be putting this ward down every single game as a midlaner, this is not specific to Akshan.
Mid + Lategame
Im considering Midgame to be starting at the point that a botlane turret falls (usually around 14 mins) which is also the time that you are usually going to be starting to sidelane due to botlanes swapping to staying midlane in most games.

After this point what you generally want to be doing is almost always going to your sidelane first and pushing waves out. This is important as you do not want to fall behind in XP by permanently grouping on Akshan, this Champion is very weak if you are behind in levels. After you have pushed out waves you can look to take jungle camps / or you can join your team to look for plays around the map or just whenever an Objective spawns. If for example 2nd drake is about to be contested and you do not feel like you can win a fight with your team, do not be afraid of simply pushing for the T2 Turret on the other side of the map to get yourself more ahead. Additionally you can look to get picks around sidelanes as you are alot stronger VS for example mages when catching them alone.

Lategame you do essentially the same, pretty much always push out sides first before doing anything else unless you need to get to an objective quickly with your team.

! This is just a very general Idea of what youre supposed to be doing mid and lategame as it can change depending on different scenarios. !
E mechanics
If you are new to Akshan I HIGHLY recommend going into practice tool and simply spamming E in as many spots on the map as possible, trying to get comfortable and to get to know how to use it in specific places.

Akshan E can be very lenient with certain walls letting you kinda ''slide'' past them even tho it looks like he should collide.

Akshan E has alot longer + thicker hitbox range to connect to walls then you might think, it may look like it shouldnt lock on, but it does.

When Akshan collides with a Champion during his E he falls back a bit which is very suboptimal ESPECIALLY when you are chasing someone as they will be able to get away from you alot easier by flashing for example. Instead if you see you are going to collide with someone try to jump out of your E right before hitting them to avoid getting knocked back and keep chasing them.
You can Start channeling your ult and then swing right after to have your ult shoot during your E swing. You cannot start swinging while your ult is already firing. This can be useful to get your ult damage out while engaging someone before you are in range for your E / AA's to hit them.
Thank you for using my guide I hope to have helped you out in some way or another.

I will be updating the guide regularly so if you have any Ideas about what I should add to the guide be sure to let me know.

Additionally any ratings on the guide are very appreciated !
