Akali APC to destroy the enemy carry and force it to go afk

By Reizerr
About me
Hi, so, you may asking, who the frick would take akali to the bot lane?, that's me.
I'm a noob who loves off-meta picks, i find them interesting and maybe it's not the way to git gud, but for me it's the way to have tons of fun.

My main account is Veigarzzz, i'm peruvian, so sorry if my english is bad and i'm a bronce II player so you might be closing the guide by now BUT PLEASE DON'T DO IT.

I love Akali and i personally don't picture myself playing other champ like her, so take that with my deep love for off-meta and here you go, welcome to my first guide in the whole universe and i'm exiting and nervous (maybe was better to start with that but whatever).

Probably nobody is gonna to see this but **** it i'm going to do my best B)
Introduction
So this guide about Akali isn't exactly about Akali, is about how to play it in the bot lane for fun. Don't expect this guide to be full on Akali's tips and tricks, maybe i'd cover the basics but just that.
Pros / Cons

Pros

Cons

  • Weak in early until the powerspike (mainly in level 6 or 9)
  • Against cc can be really bad, one ability can destroy her since now can be two enemies dealing damage to you
  • I wouldn't put this but, getting use to her takes time, don't get discourage by this, once you get her beat is fricking awesome.
Runes
So, why taking Electrocute?.

It's mainly because when you are playing in the bot lane the enemy champions don't tend to handle to much damage.
I test this and against a Zyra I manage to kill her in just two trades, activate Electrocute can be a HUGE difference, you can activate by the combo Five Point Strike + Assassin's Mark + Five Point Strike again or if you have level 3 by Shuriken Flip + reactivate + Five Point Strike or Assassin's Mark.

This is the rune that i would take since there is no other rune that can get us the result we want, Conqueror is for longer trades (something you won't have against an adc) and Fleet Footwork is for sustain and is better to have the extra damage for more aggressive playstyle than sustain in lane.
Summoner Spells
Ignite and Exhaust are the combination that i use always, Ignite can give us a lot of kill potential, it's amazing with Akali, getting the most kills it's the main focus, Exhaust can prevent the enemy for escaping and getting reduce damage if you have Twilight Shroud in cooldown, also can be good for dealing with hypercarries supports like Pyke or other that can deal equal amount of damage like Vel'Koz or Senna.

Flash is also a good option, but i got use to not taking it so much that I pretty much never use it, in theory can be good to cut distance between you and the enemy adc and to escape in bad situations.
Items
If you didn't take Flash, a good option to use is Hextech Rocketbelt, it's good to cut distance and to help you. I really love this item, the minidash that gives is so useful and pretty fun too. Also helps with the passive magic penetration you get have a lot of burst potential.

The other option to full burst is Night Harvester, you are going full for the squishy champions and the passive of this item really does a lot for that, it procs for every champ so squishies really can't handle the damage. Best option if you want the enemy to go from 100 to 0.
Abilities
Every ability that does damage can proc Assassin's Mark, it basically makes a circle around the enemy, when you are leaving the circle gives you a slightly boost of movement speed and when you get out of the circle get a empowered basic attack, has more range and deals extra damage.

Main ability to trade with Akali and main source of damage in low levels, (before Perfect Execution). At the tip of the ability slows the enemy a little bit making it easier to land other abilities or to catch up the enemy, try to use it for trade, and in this case it's better to farm, you don't want to take free damage from the enemy adc. Also if you do it in diagonal form can proc the passive instantly.

This ability makes you invisible and can help you when you don't want to take free damage from the enemy adc. Restores energy and expands your energy gauge by 80, it's really useful when you are getting low in energy. When Shuriken Flip touches the shroud leaves a mark and you can recast Shuriken Flip.

The only skillshot in Akali's kit, great escape tool but most important your main resource for damage, the recast do TONS TONS of damage and follows the enemy no matter what, so if they try to flash you can follow them to finish the job quickly. Don't miss this ability, is really important. Also can make you dash through walls so keep that in mind.

This ability is really good to prevent ganks, getting close to the enemy, and burning Banshee's Veil (if they have it), it's targeted.
The recast is the real deal, it's an execution, the lower the hp of the enemy is the more damage you do, use it at the end of combos or when it's running out of time, thanks to the secondary runes of domination with Ultimate Hunter you can have it in no time, don't hesitate on use it for escape.
Lane phase / Early game
The main focus for me it's getting the level three power spike, if you can do a good trade with Five Point Strike and proc Electrocute do it.
The thing you looking for it's getting the Shuriken Flip recast, don't forget that the support can engage with it's more than a good opportunity to do your full combo.

Always look for the kill and get the advantage, Akali is no good farmer so getting kills can lead you to have a good advantage against the enemy, be careful, you can fed a lot by going all-in without an escape plan, always have you W Twilight Shroud to get you cover if you get in a bad spot.

When you get your level 6, considering that you have at least decent amount of gold you can melt the enemy adc. Use Perfect Execution to close the gap between you and the enemy carry, and if you manage to kill them without using the recast, use it if you have to get the hell out of that situation. Don't forget, you are an assassin, do what you do best and get the lead no matter what.
Mid game / Team Fights
You got the lead you wanted?, time to get that lead to other lanes.
One thing I really like is helping the team with the advantage you got in lane, you can be a second jungler. Keep in mind, that is important to get back in lane from time to time, you won't get farm from minions and won't get any xp, you don't have to underestimate the enemy carry if they get fed through minions and towers you can have a lot of trouble. In teamfights look forward to go against squishy champions, your damage and your tools should be enough to get the kill and get in a good spot.
Don't forget, nobody, NOBODY, can't do a 1v5 (well maybe champs like Yone or Sett can but it doesn't matter) always go with your team, they can save you in a lot of situations, if they are coming and you are in trouble, use Zhonya's Hourglass to burn time.

When securing objetives Akali is pretty bad in helping the team do that, the one thing I personally like to do is burning time with the enemy, or try to punish an enemy that is in a bad spot or when the enemy is rotating towards the objetive punish them, forcing 1v1 situations.
Late game
In late game try to go with your team, closing the game it's important, kills doesn't matter if you didn't destroy towers and getting objectives.

Thanks to Lich Bane you are a good split pusher, if you are fed slip pushing can be a good idea. Akali can take 1v2 with a little bit of troubles but she can handle it.

Closing the game and destroy the nexus becomes the main goal, Guardian Angel can mess you up if you want to kill the enemies, that is why you have to use your advantage to force situations that can lead you to win the game.
Conclusion
Well, to summarize everything the goal is to get kills, help the team in other lanes and force fights that can go in your favor.
Quite simple right?.

But now for real, Akali can get an easy advantage in the bot lane thanks to have a support that can engage for you. The problem is when gets up to a state in the match when you can't scale more, you want to finish the match and not get to much into late game.

Remember, this guide is more for tips and tricks or some things to keep in mind while trying this. But i would really appreciate if you try new things and find other ways to play.

The most important thing is to enjoy the game and have fun.

Good luck!.
Thanks for reading!
This is my first guide, so if you made it this far, i really appreciate.

I'm looking forward in updating this guide from time to time, i'm not planning in doing another guide/build since there isn't to much a bronze II can talk about hahah.
