Akali AD - recent matches

I am having extremely a lot of fun with this build. People do not expect it, they are suprised that it is good. Even I remain suprised on how versetile u can play her, and many other champs too actually. These are just some of the games i played with her. U would not expect but her damage output is amazingly high.

New Playstyle

U are 60% AD assassin & 40% bruiser. build her like that.
With an attackspeed +- 1.4 It goes really well with the AA and ulti AA ('reset').

BONUS AD gives u +30% spell vamp.
Main damage output = E 'Crescent slash' +- 300 dmg lategame.
Those 2 combined = +180hp in minion wave - to give u an idea.

Do not use Q too much mid-lategame lvl 13+. It takes a lot of time to cast and take alot of energy. U are better of with AA + E

Dare and DO rely and your strong AA & E damage, u will be rewarded greatly.

DO NOT go 1v5 and like a ****** player, pick your fights, maybe enter a bit later in figt when cd of their CC is gone. or snipe a caay out of position.

Enemies are like: what do i do vs AD akali?

They dont know. That is a huge weakness which u can exploit.

They havent't played against akali AD so they dont know her strong attributes, where she shines, how much damage which spell does .. they dont know.

That gives them uncurtainty. Very good for us.

Fact: Pink vision or a sweeper is the perfect counter for akali. If u notice that in laning fase be very carefull and maybe lure an all-in so he places it and pull back. Care for gank + pink ward. build more bruiser then usually if they can burst/CC u down. Get Mallet or suitable bruiser item. Since u are bruiser and a bit tanky the focus should be on the AP & AD carry from your team. Play wisely

VS Melee
Harass from lvl 1 with Q and deny them, hopefully u gain a lead. else play safe

VS Ranged
Dont die, play safe, rely on ganks, WARD. Always ward.

VS Lee sin
U cant win vs a good lee sin, surviving & lategame shining

After leveling E, Mark or shroud, what fits u more.

Core items + COUNTERBUILD for a good balance in defence and offence.

Bloodthirster is a must have & HUGE damage boost. The BF sword too. Use this boost and chose a fight.

Trinity: Sheen = awesome extra damage. Phage = bruiser + AA move speed - chase much + Zeal Attack speed is nice. weaker endgame, replace it by IE.

+ Super synergy with

Frozen mallet: Nice tankyness + slow. if they have and extra jump + flash u can still catch them and take em out.

Last whisperer: Obvious armor pen for an AA'er ESPECIALLY WHEN ENEMY HAS ARMOR - GET THIS

MaW: Obvious AD + magic shield

Infinity Edge: Try it out. MEGA damage, more deadly, and more fun!

Guardian Angel:

Ravenous Hydra: why not

Warmorgs armor, Randuins ETC

Sory for not including images for the items. Sory for spell errors.

For a basic guide on how to deny, zone, ward, map awareness, teamwork etc - there are plenty of guides out there.

Briefly showing Akali AD is STRONG & viable, it really is.
