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.
WE all know akali is op. thats about it
You want to try and move as much as possible, dive in and out of battle
regular combo : Q R hit E hit Q
You want to try and run in, burst them with your combo then W and run out. Go back in use your Q R hit E hit Q combo, then if they are under 40 percent health-chase them (unless they have more then 1 teammates, or are near a tower with CC - that being unless they are REALLY low, you can just R then capture the tower.

Akali's Story :
There exists an ancient order originating in the Ionian Isles dedicated to the preservation of balance. Order, chaos, light, darkness -- all things must exist in perfect harmony for such is the way of the universe. This order is known as the Kinkou and it employs a triumvirate of shadow warriors to uphold its causes in the world. Akali is one of these shadow warriors, entrusted with the sacred duty of Pruning the Tree - eliminating those who threaten the equilibrium of Valoran.
A prodigal martial artist, Akali began training with her mother as soon as she could make a fist. Her mother's discipline was relentless and unforgiving, but predicated on the fundamental principle: ''We do that which must be done.'' When the Kinkou inducted her into the order at the age of fourteen, she could slice a dangling chain with a chop of her hand. There was no question - she would succeed her mother as the Fist of Shadow. She has had to do much in this role which others might find morally questionable, but to her it is in service of her mother's inviolable doctrine. She now works with her fellows Shen and Kennen to enforce the balance of Valoran. This hallowed pursuit has unsurprisingly led the triumvirate to the Fields of Justice.
''The Fist of Shadow strikes from the cover of death itself. Do not impede the balance.''
I had a dream about this story last night, and then and only then did I understand akali's backround, and i had a dream. A single dream. To make the best build for her. SO i utilised all my brain power,a nd believe me i have a lot of brain power. Added up the statistics to give you. THE BEST. AKALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLIIIIIIIIII BUILD EVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!!!!!!!!
dont worry you can thank me afterwards hahahaha :P
I'm not level 30 yet so, im sorry i don't relaly konw which runes to take, but its honestly up to you.
but waht i can see you want ot mainly stack AP, coz you konw her whole thing is based around AP (hahaha im a funny one) but if you really want to own, i would follow my build
Basic masteries, i honestly cbf making a whole thing about it, but *sigh* i will
the masteries not only helps akali but demonstrates her abilities ever more, making sure that she can destory even the best kat. And yes, kat is one of akali's weakneses, with her moves beign similar to akalis but more bursty (yes i know thats not a word for all you grammar nazis out there, and the reaosn this grammar is so bad is coz im typing it really really fast ( iahve dinner relaly soon)
Well you want boots of mobility coz obviosuly in dominion you want to be able to run all around the map.... very fast. Capturing points and darting away whenever someobody comes, or, if they are easy enough burst- run away a bit- burst again then chase.
With the slowing one, this helps akali chase way more hten she alreayd does and trust me she chases alot lie a *****.
Basicaly just get your Q up as often as possible, it is your destroyin tool. Same with R. Your W is not need that much as it is just a shield that you only need at level 1. Your E is a secondary kind of move.
And make sure you grab R as much as possible, as R is ABSOLUTELY necesary in your combo
CEEEEEEEEEEBS! but get ghost and exhaust, because they are just plain OP on dominion. you want to try and use your exhaust to lower their damage rather then to stop them escaping (Thats the point of ryls scepter)
whatever you do dont get flash because flash in dominion is practically uselsss
as for the mana spell thats another DONT, because... obviously he doesn't have mana. There are a lot of other spells but to be honest I can't really be bothered typin them all up, all you need to know is that exhaust and ghost are the only spells you really need.
with all the other ones
they are all bad choices
seeing as you only need ghost
- to run away, or to catch up to people who are faster then you ( or if your ulti is on cool down) or to quickly run to their base to capture it
exhaust is excellent it can not only make them do absolutely no ****ing damage
but can also slow them and get rid of some of their armor
if you ask me its one of the most op spells in teh game, (Apart form akali herself.
Akali is a great character whether it be for 1 v 1ing or 1 v2ing or just in general. But his real opnesss shows in fights where you can just dive in and out of battle without worrying about dying (your ******* invisible shield which everybody hates so much) combined with your R move Q and E move, make great combos. Although you should watch out for trynd. Every time i seem to vs him I either run away or I need a teammate to take him. IT is actually impossible to solo that damn op dude.
in dominion you might want to capture Mid seeing as your so fast you will easily be able to run to the top in no time to help your team OWN AND DEFEAT the opposition.
As a disruptor, you're going to be running between points stopping people from taking them when your defender isn't there. You're going to do this really fast, because of the ammount of damage you can get out of this build. The skill order I usually use is:You can also slot in somewhere, but that changes each time to as and when you need it. I usually use it as an escape mechanism afterwards, but that's purely personal preference. This makes for a good "Get in, Get out" method of disrupting, just as an assassin should be.At the very beginning of the game, you will want to go to the Windmill, as your teammates will need you there for the extra damage. Make sure to run through the speed shrine to get there faster. After that, you'll just be running around to wherever you are needed, and if you are about to go into a big teamfight, it might be wise to take storm shield, so that you're a lot more likely to escape after gaining a double kill off those oh so tasty squishies.NOTE: In teamfights, you should only run in, pick off their squishiest champion, then run out again. If you have enough health left, rinse and repeat until your team has destroyed theirs, and then go help capture a couple of points.
your role as a disrupter
Your role as a disruptor is to stop people taking points, and making sure your enemies are out of the game for as long as possible. The best way to do this? Kill them fast, and kill them hard! As I have said already, this guide will NOT get you the 1st place on your team, so if you want that, go somewhere else. This guide is for keeping the enemy team at bay, and making sure your team can take and hold points with ease.The main thing you have to do, is hit it's (the enemy team's) weakspot for massive damage. I'll go more in-depth into this in the strategy section, so keep reading!
I havin't really played him in ranked that much, but from what i can tell he gets banned a lot in the draft picks so it would be wise not to choose draft picks, but apart from the he is absolutely and completely OP.
Pros / Cons
- he is a very good teams person, being that he can completely carry a team, or help the team succede in owning, and when i say owning i mean DOMINIATING domination
his moves are very over powered and with the right items he can completely destroy even the best players
even tho he requires some skill he is actually very easy to master, even the average newb who plays yi would be able to pick him up after a few games
- people cry to much when you own them
AKALI IS AN EXCELLENT FARMER!
as soon as she hits around level 10 she farms like a ****ing farming goat!
but you have to take to mind that dominion isn't really about farming
its about running around, owning and destryoing your enemy not to mention capturing points.
