Anguish's Masters Akali Mid/Top S14 Guide Patch [14.9] - Every Matchup/Item/Rune explained!

By Anguish333

Hellau, I'm Anguish, Akali OTP [1.9 Million Mastery Points] for 3 seasons now, assassin player in general hitting Masters on EUW with her in s11-s13 (379LP Peak) and Challenger on EUNE. In this Guide ill just talk about my thought process with runes/items and my general experience in playing Akali. Hope I can make some things clear.

I'm also streaming my games on if you want to ask about anything, chillax with me and more

I know Masters isn't big of a achievement, especially in latest seasons but is still top % of server i guess

Challenger Proof

Some random Master WRs


* Most importantly She's one of the most fun Champions to play in League (even if bad in meta)

* Can Easly dodge ganks with Dashes and Shroud

* Insane Mobility

* Great against Squishy

* High Skill Ceiling

* Insane at 1v1s (if played well, can win most of them if not behind)

* Huge pressure in Teamfights

* Outplays look cool


* Bad in meta at the moment

* Squishy even with every defensive thing we have

* Hard to 1v9 but doable

* Shroud is countered by Champions that reveal invis

* Easly countered by CCs

* Hard to get consistent good CS

* Bad early game

* Won't get prio in most matchups

Rune / Item / Summoner Spell Choices

Runes, Items and Summoner Spells are explained above in Notes (Maybe will make custom Chapter for them after I'm done with everything else)

I will only tell You about (in my opinion) most important things, I will not include combos that are flashy or anything, or are purely stylish (Maybe will do after finishing most useful combos and matchups)


Passive - Assassin's Mark

You can get your Passive instantly without moving (works only from Blue Side)

You can Auto then Flash out of Passive Circle to insta proc it

Q - Five Point Strike

Q is longer on edges

You can Extend or Reposition your Q with Flash

Even tho it has been removed long time ago, you can still cast Q while in E2, after cancelling any dash

W - Twilight Shroud

You can extend your Shroud with E mark (You can still hide in it)

Shroud spreads towards Enemies

You can use Shroud in E2 to get some Energy

You can use Teleport in Shroud

You can hide back in Shroud even in Zhoniya's Hourglass

E - Shuriken Flip

Akali casts her E after little backflip [behind her]

You can Reposition your E with Flash

If you Flash bit later you can completly cancel dash part from E1

You can cancel E1 dash with R1

You can also do that with R2

You can cancel your E2 with Flash, R1 and R2

You can use Items like Rocketbelt or Zhoniyas in E2 (Zhoniyas will still deal damage)

E1 -> Flash cancel -> Passive Auto -> E2 = Insane Burst especially with Electrocute

You can also do that when dashing through enemy with your ult to gap close

You can dash through walls (even big ones) with your E backflip

Here is cool trick to save some time! Leaving base with bit less gold than we need for item, leaving mark in our shroud buying item and then E2 to our mark

R - Perfect Execution

R1 Deals AoE DMG!

Most basic combo that makes your E almost undodgable

You can dash through walls with R1

Both ults can be extended by Flash

R2 Has Huge Hitbox (hits targets even behind Akali)


Most basic way of procing Electrocute

E1+E2+Passive Auto is enough to proc Electrocute too!

Most basic quick Trade

Basic Combo Showcase

We can do really insane dives with our R2 Hitbox being so huge

If you are not sure of your R2 Hitting your target, you can Flash behind and then R2 out of Turret Range

Funny Akali combo thing

Example of Decent Akali Combos and Clips in general


Akali Early game is not as weak as it used to, but still most of the time if enemy plays well you can't really do anything and we need to wait for level 6, so try farming as best as possible till then.

At level 6 we can all-in most champs, especially if he have Hextech Alternator.
In some matchup you will need to poke them to around 70% hp before all-inning


You will most likely swap with your Botlane, so you still play vs Enemy Mid. You want to Clear waves, takes prio if your jungler is nearby, if not play defensive get pushed and just chill. If wave is really far away (under enemy t2 turret for example) you should cover your team, help your support ward and get control over map, or make picks with Oracle, you gotta be sure that enemy are not baiting you, or camping for you in enemy jungle tho. Most of the time if you play with Teleport, you gonna go to other side of map where next objective is so: If Drake is up, you want to go Toplane, to pressure other side of map, and then TP in case your team fights, If Baron is Objective go bot.

You can clear enemy camps if you are confident in doing that, be careful to not waste that many spells tho( Akalis Jungle Clear is bad, Only E Deals decent dmg but only to single target so try hitting "Big" mob in camp, big Raptor, big Wolf etc. It's bit better if you have Lich Bane ofc. Do not waste W if you are not sure where enemies are. You gonna lose a lot of HP doing that, so I'd only advice counterjungling as Akali for: Enemy BlueBuff/RedBuff and if you are really ahead


In Late game you want to be groupped with your team almost always, since getting caught in Late game means losing game. You Should have enough items to not feel bad about not farming that much. Make sure you think about how teamfights should be played, what to focus, what or who is your priority.


* Make sure that when you have big bounty on you, you either stack with team and try force stuff, or play really carefully on side. You don't wanna give away 1k gold shutdown for enemy. If it happens even once game can be insta lose from that point

* If you are pushing side, save your W and E unless you are sure that there are no enemies nearby. If you waste both of them you cannot escape or fight enemies that will try to kill you

* Your E2 Deals a lot of DMG, you can use that as "Smite" when doing Objectives
