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.
Hey there guys. This is my first time creating a build here so, in advance, sorry if anything is out of place ehehe.
Akali is my main champ, and i play with it alot, so i decided i could try to help new players who wish to know more on what to buy, and how to play with her.
On this fase, you can either choose to mid lane, or to go top/bot, whathever you feel like since she can mid lane properly too.
Start by harrassing a bit with your Mark of the Assassin, but dont risk it too much, just make them use those potions till they run out of them. You wanna try to get the last hit on minions with it too, to start getting money for those items.
Once you have 1435, go to the shop to buy those boots and an Amplifying tome. Once you hit lvl 6, time to rack up some kills. If you see someone with HP less then half, by all means go for it, but be careful about stuns. after some easy kills try to aim for Hextech revolver AND Blasting wand, to start building your rylai's. Once you have it, time to get serious about ganking...
Since you have more AP, and now you can slow them down with your skills, start walking around the map looking for ppl to gank, and start by charging at them with your ulti, followed by your mark. Your ulti will put them slow enough for you to play around a bit, but always be careful for another gankers. That's were your Shroud would come into use and allow you to gank and run ;) together with flash, its amazing how easy you can vanish from their line of sight.
When you have enough money for the rest of the Hextech Gunblade, go buy it and start ganking for the lich bane ...
When you have your Lich bane, you will be killing squishy champs in less then nothing, and the game will probably be over by this time ... IF actually is becoming a game like 50-50, with no sides beeing better then the other, then your zhonya and deathfire will prove otherwise... with MORE then enough AP, even those bastard tanks will come down to nothing. If you have those items, and are doing good, then you should be like a knife cutting through butter. But dont get too cocky though, you get focused and you go down, just like any other champ... Play as a team and jump on those teams fights AFTER your tank start it, or you will have no time to get no one down. If the game is going bad for your side, or if one of your team went DC ( thoase damn leavers!!! ) buy a Guardian angel so they have to kill you twice! With your spell vamp, and AP, the health you have when you come back to life is more than enough to kill a squishy and disappear.
Remeber to play safe, and risk from time to time.
Wich means, tower dives are good when you have your CDs to get away ready, and no stunner champ is around.
Be careful with Oracle's elixir, wich can ruin your gameplay since they will all see you inside your shroud, so target the bearer first.
Dont get to frustated when some games are going bad, remember, every game is a diferent game and akali is dificult to master, just practice and practice, and you will see your score rise and your kills jumping around.
Would apreciate that people who downvote would leave their comment, so i knew why they did, and what could become diferent, so Akali would still be as fun as deadly to play ^^ Thks guys, have fun ^^
AND PLEASE, DO NOT SHADOW DANCE AT HOME!!! Stay safe! ;)
