+9 Adaptive (5.4 AD or 9 AP)
Threats & Synergies
A super stacked Veigar can one shot. So don't drag the game if there is a Veigar.
A super stacked Nasus can one shot. But of course you can poke the heck outta him with your kit! Always try to cancel his autoattacks and Qs with shroud timed correctly or with E/R.
Champion Build Guide
Akali's damaged is base off of her passive.
Her passive is seriously based off of her movement speed...
Akali's e is also based off of AD.
Putting these two hints together...
I came up with the idea that Akali should probably played with AD and movement speed.
So Youmuu's Ghostblade would be crucial as well as trinity force.
Ad also helps akali a lot in CS as well as fending off foes who like getting very close.
Maxing W first also helps akali gain the upperhand with movement speed as well as energy to continue the q move out of circle and proct passive combos.
One crucial thing to take note of is the fact that her second use of her ult will do significantly less damage and therefore her ult will become more of a chasing tool or escaping tool. However, the ult cooldown should theoretically be shorter as a benefit of this build.
I really can't find anyone that will significantly counter this build if played correctly simply focusing on cs and pressuring enemy away from the minions with shroud q walk out and proct passive pokes. Darius is easy to poke as you can simply E his blade Q and simply just walk way when he tries to pull you in as you are in your shroud. Never fight tanks head on as well as Yasuos and Kayles! Always poke them down super low then ult micro stun get passive and kill em!
