How To REALLY Play AKALI in [9.3] / STRONGER THAN NERFS! STR

By Torchbearer
WORK IN PROGRESS [I will explain the principles of this build here soon!]
Meanwhile, please DO NOT be a debby downer and talk badly about the build UNTIL YOU'VE TRIED IT AT LEAST ONCE, this is by far the most all-around effective build for Akali in the current meta and enables us to play her a bit differently than before, more as a tanky, mechanical AD/AP hybrid with a LOT of kill and pick-off potential and less as a very fragile & weak assassin without any teamfight sustain.

I'm still actively climbing towards Masters with this build right now and can attest to it's effectiveness.

I will be posting videos and such here soon when I have time to write down a detailed overview of the build and how it changes Akali's playstyle while staying true to her hyper pickoff assassin identity.

The extra AD/tenacity just scales BETTER on new Akali, even though you will see most people building her as AP due to confusion & not understanding her kit & how scaling works. The only AP items you should get on Akali are the ones that give penetration, everything else with AP is a LOSS OF DAMAGE on her.

Why no Lich Bane? 75% AD + 50% AP just doesn't scale well unless we're going full AP, even if we got the item as a 5th or 6th choice it'd still be on the weaker side, not to mention it gives us no survivability at all whatsoever.

Test it out and see for yourself! Happy climbing, we're still OP and in business. Just gotta play the right cards. :)
Cheers!
