Threat Champion Notes
Katarina Your dream match up, avoid her while she has you marked, mark her and then proc it and watch magic happen, you will ALWAYS outdamage a katarina lv 1-3 lv 4-5 she might push you back a bit but post 6 you can own her, bait her and then shroud and ult in for the proc kill

hey there, im Sakii Nightshade, NA Server, i play akali for fun and started playing her when Hexakill came out i went 54/19/10 my very first game with her, and ever since them ive played her mid or top or jungle, i got my first penta with her, and i regularly get 25-40 kills with her... on a bad day... ive tried many different builds, used scarras builds and masteries and even the "so many noobs" build and never found more kill potential then the one i made, im here to share that with you! ^w^ Edit: Updated for s5

Pros / Cons

insane burst
extreme mobility
gank happy
8 seconds of invisibility every 14 seconds (9 with 30 cdr with this build)? my god.
easily get a pentakill 1v5 if you can get into bushes
can cast Hextech GB MID ult (fancy kills for fancy people?)
sexiest dance

once ult is down easy to catch
once shroud is down can get killed easily
semi squishy if no ult
can be killed mid ult
vision can cripple her ; ^ ;

MARKS: Hybrid pen: maximizes her damage as she can deal both ap and ad damage

SEALS: Scaling ap: gives her a bit more oomph later on flat ap is also useable

GLYPHS: Scaling CDR: 1.2 second Q with 30% CDR? thats stupid op if you ask me! i prefer these as they help me cast more and have gotten me out of sticky situations many times

QUINTS: flat ap: more damage early game

30/0/0 damage most people build her for survivability (21/9/0) but if you kill so fast that your enemy cant dammage you... then that 120 health from juggernaut... is useless... note that if you like to farm early game rather then be agressive then 21/9 is your best bet

Guide Top


damage damage damage damage this build can burst peole so fast they scream when you TP in on them~ (average kill time for adc / mages when you telekill is .1s - .4s if you get the combo down with one auto)

Guide Top

Team Work

you dont always need stuns or roots or a tank, but they help... try and pick off they adc while your tank is in the fray and causing chaos

if you get stunned, accept your death OR if you live try to ult to the adc / squishy mid and kill them the LS and SV from HTGB will heal you

Guide Top

Skill Sequence

when going in for a kill the best skill rotation is: R - - (Hextech gunblade - Q - auto - E - R that almost ALWAYS kills them if mot, they have been slowed and now you can chase and kill

Guide Top


play agressive, always mark, stay unseen and remember... Savor every kill...

Guide Top


Teleport + ignite, you dont really need flash because you have your ult but you can take it if you want, another way to go is Teleport Exhaust slow, damage reduction and map coverage? so much win.... exhaust helps with fed fizz' or that annoying nid who runs when she cant damage you or that vi who thinks shes cool with her punching and all that jazz... i use both regularly~
