Welcome to my Akali build. This is a AP build with alots of health, mostly focused on ability power because most of akali's spells take advantage of that.

Masteries: 21-9-0

I put 21 masteries points in "offense" because i like hunting with akali.
Now i got 9 points left, and i put them in "defence" i put some points into armor, and dodge rating so i can get the point in "Nimbleness" last last one in defense. This is very good, because akali is a hunter/farmer, and when she use an attack the "nibleness" will pop up and you gain 10% momentspeed for 5 seconds. This will help you alot to get in range again after done an attack.
I guess many of you think this is stupid to put the 9 mastery points i defense, but trust me and try it - It works!

Akali's spells:

Explaination of Skills:
Twin Disciplines(Innate):
Discipline of Might - Upon obtaining 20 ability power, Akali's hits deal 10% bonus magic damage, increasing by 1% for every 5 ability power gained thereafter.
Discipline of Force - Upon obtaining 10 attack damage, Akali gains 10% spell vamp, increasing by an additional 1% for every 20 attack damage gained thereafter.

Mark of the Assassin:
Akali deals magic damage and marks her target for 6 seconds.
If she hits a marked target, the mark triggers dealing the same magic damage and restoring energy. And this spell is awesome for last hitting minions or do tons of damage when you have marked the target and hit it.

Twilight Shroud:
Akali throws down a cover of smoke for a few seconds, becoming stealthed while in the area. Enemies in the smoke have 40% reduced movement speed and reduced attack speed.

You can use this spell to make sure people cant run, they will be so slow you can close in on them and finish them off. Its your best way of escaping aswell, as used in jungle can confuse your chaser. In certain scenarios you will have use of the armor/magic resistance to survive a big hit, such as a nunu firing absolute zero and you attack them, the armor/resistance will make you take the hit better(if nunu actually survives long enough to charge fully).

Crescent Slash:
Akali flourishes her Kamas, hitting nearby units for physical damage plus 30% Ability Power + 60% Attack Damage.

This spell doesnt hit as hard as many of your others, but you should use it often, as it activates trinity force(which means you hit like a truck with your next attack), and you can farm EASILY with it.

Shadow Dance:
Akali moves through shadows to quickly strike her target, dealing damage and consuming an Essence of Shadow. Akali gains a new Essence of Shadow every number of seconds, up to 3 total.

Spell rotation:

First you cast your Mark of the Assasin, and then you use your ultimate for getting in rage so you can hit the target with your Crescent Slash. After that the target should be around around half health, and you keep doing the same rotation. No one can escape from akali because her ultimate. If you be in trobbels you can use your Twilight Shroud. This is a awesome escape spell!
Remember to use it.

Item Build:

I start buying an Amplifying Tome and a Health pot.
The reason why i buy the Amplifying Tome is because when you reach level 6 you will be a farmer and when you go back for first time you have to buy the Mejai's Soulstealer, because if you are getting feeded you will get alot of stacks, and controle the game. When i have bough my Mejai's Soulstealer im starting to gank some other places and get some easy stacks. When you have 1000 coins go back and and buy Boots of Swiftness. I buy thoose bots because you are an farmer and you can get in range with the bots, and charge your ultimate on them. My next item is Guinsoo's Rageblade and this is also a very good item for akali. This item allow you to take buffs easy, and you have to do it when you can! Now its time for some health, and i choose Rylai's Crystal Scepter because your knife slow down the enemies and you will easy get in range too. When you trow the spell "mark of the assasin" the target will be slowed down and get 35% reduced momentspeed. Now its time for Lich Bane, this is a awesome item for akali if she have enough ability power, but you will get feeded with this build so it wont be a problem for you. Lich Bane help you alot with getting the target down, with the 100% ability hit you make after an spell. If you have 500 ability power you will deal aditional 500 dmg on your next attack. If you have the trigger by "mark of the assasin" on the target you make insane damage and can kill everyone!
My last item is Zhonya's Ring this is a good item you will get 120 ability power. When the item is done, and when you have the ring you get a passiv. The passiv give you aditional 25% of all your ability in ability power so if you have 400 ability power you will get 100 ability power more.
Zhonya's Ring is effektiv against karthus, ryze and other nukers. If you use your ring you will Place your champion into Stasis for 2 seconds, rendering you invulnerable and untargetable but unable to take any actions. This ability have 90 sec cooldown.

Im sorry for my english, but i try to do my best. I guess you understand the most of it, but im sorry you will think im stupid :D
I hope you like this build because i make scores like 25-0 if im getting feeded with her.

The rest of the build will come soon!
