Sometimes it needs to be kept in check. The Kinkou are the self-appointed keepers of Ionia’s sacred balance. The order’s loyal acolytes walk the spirit and material realms, mediating conflicts between them and, when necessary, intervening by force. Born among their ranks was Akali, daughter of Mayym Jhomen Tethi, the renowned Fist of Shadow. Mayym and her partner Tahno raised their daughter within the Kinkou Order, under the watchful leadership of Great Master Kusho, the Eye of Twilight. Whenever her parents were called away, other members of the order stepped in as Akali’s surrogate family. Kennen, the Heart of the Tempest, spent many hours with the young girl, teaching her shuriken techniques, and emphasizing speed and agility over strength. Akali was a precocious child, and soaked up the knowledge like a sponge. It became clear to all that she would follow her parents’ path—along with the Great Master’s son and appointed successor Shen, she would lead a new generation dedicated to preserving Ionia’s balance. But balance can be fleeting. The order found itself divided. A wayward acolyte named Zed returned, and clashed violently with Kusho, wresting power in a bloody coup. Akali fled into the eastern mountains along with Mayym, Shen, Kennen, and a handful of other acolytes. Sadly, Tahno was not among them. Zed’s transformation of the Kinkou into the merciless Order of Shadow was almost complete. But, as the new Eye of Twilight, Shen intended to rebuild what had been lost. They would return to the Kinkou’s three fundamental philosophies: the pure impartiality of Watching the Stars, the passage of judgment in Coursing the Sun, and the elimination of imbalance by Pruning the Tree. Even though they were now few, they would train neophytes to restore and grow their numbers once more. When Akali came of age at fourteen, she formally entered her Kinkou training, determined to succeed her mother as the new Fist of Shadow. She was a prodigious fighter, and mastered the kama and kunai—a handheld sickle and throwing dagger. Though she did not possess the magical abilities of many of her fellow acolytes, she proved to all she was worthy of the title, in time allowing her mother to step down and help mentor the younger neophytes. But Akali’s soul was restless, and her eyes were open. Though the Kinkou and the Order of Shadow had come to an uneasy accord in the wake of the Noxian invasion of Ionia, she saw that her homeland continued to suffer. She questioned whether they were truly fulfilling their purpose. Pruning the Tree was meant to eliminate those who threatened the sacred balance... yet Shen would always urge restraint. He was holding her back. All the mantras and meditations could quiet her spirit, but such platitudes would not defeat their adversaries. Her youthful precociousness turned to outright disobedience. She argued with Shen, she defied him, and she took down Ionia’s enemies her way. In front of the whole order, she declared the impotence of the Kinkou, all its talk of spiritual balance and patience accomplishing little. Ionians were dying in the material realm, and that was the realm Akali would defend. She was trained as an assassin. She was going to be an assassin. She did not need the order anymore. Shen let her go without a fight, knowing this was a path that Akali must walk alone. Perhaps that path would bring her back one day, but that would be for her to decide.

Introduction

Hey Guys,
this is one way to jungle with Akali.
But if you read on, you have to know that you can't jungle without any Runes.
I think Akali is made for the jungle. Her early game is like a coin: If you got a bad one, your mid-game is failed. Her ultimate spell is made for ganks.If you're jungling you can skip this part of the game.
Back to Top

Pros / Cons for Jungling

Pros:
Akali got spell vampire and extra damage
Her ultimate is made for ganking
She can have a rly bad early game, which failes her whole game

Cons:
Akali is really low life and she needs deffs
You NEED runes to jungle
She needs both passive spells
Back to Top

Summoner Spells

My Summoner Spells are:
Smite and Flash.
I choosed this ones cause of:
Smite = To jungle( without it it's nearly impossible) and my masteries give me some gold.
Flash = Maybe you know it too. You think your unkillable and jump into the whole enemie's team without any thinking. Now you're staying in your Twilight Shroud. For those sittuations I got flash. You jump over the next wall and run away.
Other skills like flash are nice too, so you can get others if ou think they are better.

Runes

There are some other guides to jungle with Akali, but all of them use dodge and magic penetration. I think it's really expensive. This one is alternative to this ones and i think it's such so good like them.
-Armor for a long stay in the jungle and an easier start.
-Health for a better surviving and easier jungling.
-Ability Power for her 2nd passive spell
Back to Top

Items

If you like to jungle, you have to buy Dorans Blade cause of the lifeboost and to activate her 1st passive spell in combo with her masteries.
After a few minutes of jungling you got enaugh money to buy Amplifying Tome, wich can be updated to sheen. If you got some money after buying Amplifying Tome you can buy some Health Potions to survival and stay in the jungle.
Now i get Giant's Belt. This item is usefull in the jungle and on the lane. You update this one to Rylai's Crystal Scepter.
After i got this items i usually buy Guinsoo's Rageblade caouse of the 3nice boots (attack speed; ap; damage).
Lich Bane is a really nice item cause of his passive effect and his boosts like more ability power and magic resist.
I wrote this is a hybrid guide and now my next item will say it,too. It's Hextech Gunblade cause of the 4perfect boots to push Akali. If you get this Item you're imba and kill the enemy with nice life steal.
My last Item was often Zhonya's Ring, but now it calls "bankys deathcap" (The symbol of bankys deathcap isn't updated on mobafire, so i used Zhonya's).

Jungling

I uploaded 2pictures of the 2sides of the map:
Here is a short Index of the Way:
1. You start at the wolfs.
2. Then you take the Ghosts.
3. If the enemy got no jungler, you take their wolfs/ if they got a one you take the golems
4. Now you take the wolfes.
5. The Ghosts.
(6.) If you killed the enemies' wolfes, you can kill the Golems now.
After this you go back to heal, buy the 4potions and the Amplifying Tome.
7. After you are back from the base, you kill the blue golem.
8. At last you kill the Lizzard.
Now you got 2buffs and nearly half health. It's time to gank and get the money for boots and the Giant's Belt. After the Lizzard you can jungle.
Now i tell you: [How To] Jungle with Akali
You start at the wolfes and kill thir "boss" at first.
The Ghosts are much harder: kill the "boss" ( the blue one) with smite and skill your 3th skill. now kill the others.
Now here ae 2ways (with enemies jungler you have to take the 2nd way!) :
1. Go to into the enemies' jungle and kill the wolfes.
2. Or you take the 2Golems, which is really hard. Attack the first one and use your potion now spam all your skills (when they aren't on cooldown) to kill them. After them you have to go back to base.
1. Use your potion and kill your wolfes. After them: Ghosts (now without smite). Now the last ones: The 2 Golems. Kill the first Golem with smite and some hits. now kill the second one.
Go base to buy 4potions and Amplifying Tome.
Now go on in killing the blue Golem: use your 2nd spell to get more deffs. attack only the big one. kill him: use a potion everytime he attacks you. Use smite to finish.
After the blue golem kill the Lizzard like the blue golem.
