Akali Top Guide

By Xiott
Hello! My name is Xiott. I've been an Akali main since 2018, so I wanna share all of the things I've learned for this champion. I'm not an Akali sweat. All I wanna have is just fun, but if you want to rank up, then this guide is still good for you.

I'm currently Platinum 1 and it's my highest rank for now. If I make any mistakes, please tell me.

Now I hope that you learn something from this guide! :)

+Very fun to play
+A lot of mobility
+High damage
+Strong teamfights

-Bad early game
-Bad wave clear
-Bad sidelaner
-Very hard to play
-Gets pretty much deleted by point and click CC
Akali Tips and Tricks
Using W -> E to escape:
If you want to break the turret, but have a few minions or you think that the enemy is nearby, before going in the range of the turret you can use your W and then your E in your W, so when you see the enemy or run out of minions, you can quickly cast E and run away. You can also do the same thing when buying something.

W -> Teleport trick:
2. If you ever have Teleport with you and you're trying to escape, you can always put your Twilight Shroud and teleport. Your Twilight Shroud takes 5 seconds to disappear and teleport takes only 4 seconds.

E or W to go to your lane faster:
3. When you want to go to your lane faster, you can always use your E or W, because by the time that you're in lane, you're E or W will be already off of cooldown.

E2 while in stasis (Zhonya's Hourglass):
4. If you time it correctly, you can E2 while in stasis from Zhonya's Hourglass and you will still hit your enemy. It's basically like getting hit by a statue.

Extended Shroud/Extended Shroud time:
5. When you use your W, it slowly extends its range. Another trick to make your W last longer is you can use your E just when the shroud disappears and you can still E2.

E wallhops:
6. Akali can use her E to go over walls. You have to stand in the correct place tho.

Ignore scuttle vision:
7. If you wanna go mid or bottom, but there's scuttle vision and you don't wanna get seen, you can use your W and you will become invisible and you can go over the scuttle vision without getting seen.

E follows everything:
8. If you use your E on an enemy that is teleporting somewhere, you can E2 and you will follow up with them, no matter where they are.
Early game
The early game with Akali is very, very bad. You lose lane most of the time, but sometimes you have the chance against champions like Yone or Yasuo where Akali actually does some damage to them. She does horrible before level 6. Even tho her E carries the early game, she still has horrible damage. It's the best choice to farm safely before level 6 and then try killing your enemies. Even tho Akali's early game is bad, you still have to poke the enemy, so auto-attack your passive whenever you can, but mostly you want to use your spells from a safe distance without getting killed. You can be a bit aggressive when you have Second wind and Doran's shield, but I still don't recommend fighting before level 6. You don't have to do anything else than farm in the early game.
Mid game
Mid game is where Akali becomes insanely OP. You now have one more dash with your R and you should have your Hextech Rocketbelt or Shadowflame by the time you get to your mid game. All you wanna look into is using your R on your enemies because it's very OP. If they're under the turret, that's when you can get your ult off and they're not getting away unless you mess up. There are so many ways to get fed with Akali, whether it's roaming, going to team fights, 1v1s, and a lot more. Many low elo players after getting a wave and being full health, waiting for the next wave is bad. You need to learn to roam! It's very important, that you help your jungler and get fed. All you wanna do in the mid game is just overall be very aggressive and make your enemies tilt.
Late game
In the late game, now you're going against champions that have more items. You also have those items and the damage, but most of the time you don't have the health unless you build Akali as a tank. In the late game, it's important to know what skill shots or crowd control they can hit. If there's a Lissandra or Warwick in the enemy team, it's not the best to use your ult, before they use theirs. At this point of the game, you need to join a lot of team fights which Akali is the best in. Akali is one of the top late game assassins. You want to be killing people until there's an opportunity to sneak into the enemy jungle or split-push. You want to be very aggressive, even if you're against a 30/0 Pantheon, you want to get the most damage and try to kill them. You have the mobility to go in and escape from the enemy, so if you're in a sticky situation, just run to your nearest ally and escape.
