Welcome to my guide. Here's Akali-The Fist of Shadow Champion Guide.
In this guide, I'll show you how I use use Akali. Her runes, skills, item builds are shown here.
There are other builds on Akali. But I think this is also one of the good build for this Champion.
Hope you learn from this guide and comment on this Champion build. I accepting constructive criticism.
And most of all.... Enjoy using Akali..^^
Greater Mark of Insight-9
Greater Quintessence of Fortitude-3
Greater Seal of Evasion-9
Greater Glyph of Shielding-9
I prefer this runes for early defensive game. You don't wanna die early. Especially when you are laning solo mid, I prefer this runes for survival.
Using Greater Mark of Strength triggers Akali's passive - Twin of discipline (giving you 10% spellvamp at early game)
Mercury Treads- I strongly recommend this boots in two reasons- a) Tenacity- helps to reduce the duration of disables and b) Magic Resist- Reduces AP damages
1.Sorcerer's Shoes- Gives you magic penetration which really helps to your skills.
2. Ninja Tabi- Do I have to tell you? She is a ninja. She need to dodge attacks. It also helps to trigger Nimbleness. (See Akali- My Recommended Build)
3.Ionian Boots of Lucidity - I don't recommend this boots because Akali has already low cooldown skill. But when I tried this boots one time. It feels great because of its 15% cooldown reduction that makes me harass enemy faster.
Do not use the ff. boots:
1.Berserker's Greaves- not a dps champ
2. Boots of Mobility- Akali should stay at the combat. This boots is very bad for Akali
3. Boots of Swiftness- I prefer to get Mercury Treads instead of this boots because you have your chasing ability even it gives a bunch of movespeed.
Laning (top or bottom w/ allies):
Amplifying Tone + Health Potion
