Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Welcome to read my Akali build
Akali is fast and deadly with her skills combo
-Amazing burst damage
-Good in having last hit (well, I don't mean ksing)
-very good team in team fighting
-Very hard at the beginning, especially vs ranger in the lane
-Kind of item dependent
Ignite: Some people would choose Exhaust over Ignite, but I like Ignite more since I don't need to chase deep and just let it burn. It works much better than Exhaust at the beginning of the game. Also it give you 10AP while it's on CD.
Flash: It helps you run away or chasing very well. It save you a lot of charges on your Souleater and Occult.
Sword of Occult and Souleater: I personally love these items. It's strong and relatively cheap to purchase. Getting 20 charges on them isn't as hard as you think since Akali is very good at finishing (once again, I am not telling you to ks)
Ninja Tabi: You may ask why I don't get 25% atk speed. Ninja Tabi helps you stay alive since you have to charge up your Occult and Souleater, and you cannot be killed.
Rylai's Crystal Scepter: This item helps you slow enemies and give great amount of AP
Guinsoo's Rageblade: Since your skills throw out very fast, it charges up very nicely.
Lich Bane: It is superior since you will spam your skills and your next hit would hit over 500 dmg. However, the game usually ends before you get this items. So, get Sheen first if you have the gold.
Start with a long sword will active Akali's ability and give you 10% spell vamp. Use mark and follow up with a hit to finish off minion. If you are facing a melee, use mark to annoy him. If you are facing a ranger, try to use mark as the last hit. Try to stay as long as you can. Save 1300g and go get a Tome and Ninja Tabi. Back to farming until you get Occult and Souleater. You will probably around lvl 8 by now. Start running to other lane to help your teammate to finish off enemies. Shadow in for a ambush -> Mark -> Shroud -> Ignite -> Shadow again if you think it's save to do so (When enemy not too close to turret), make sure you do not die after killing.
You hopefully have your Rylai ready. Enemy would have hard time running away by now. In a 1v1 situation, I would not use Shroud. Save it for after killing when his teammates come to help. In team fight situation, Shadow in and drop shroud and start killing. Run to a save area when shroud is about to disappear. Shroud can also be use in saving teammate when he's escaping. Throw shroud on the way, shadow in and crescent slash if there are few chasing, then flash out to jungle and run away.
You probably have Occult and Souleater charge to 20. You will be owning everyone within 5-6 hit (skills+autoatk)
I hope you enjoy and have fun with Akali!!
