Ultimate Season 12 Akali Guide [12.18]

Why you should play Akali

In my opinion Akali is the best champion in the game. You can 1v1 every other champ and easy carry a teamfight or the whole game for your team. Even if you loose your lane you can comeback with one single roam or teamfight where you get some kills which is very easy due to your execute ultimate. Also its hard to gank an Akali cause she can easy outplay the jungler with her Twilight Shroud, Shuriken Flip and Perfect Execution. In low elo its not even that rare that you kill the enemy jungler at a gank.

Maybe you will be overwhelmed at the beginning but if you invest some time in practice you will have so much fun with Akali due to her high outplay potential, many mechanics and high skillcap. If you have any questions feel free to comment in the discussion section. Good luck and have fun.

Summoner Spells

Since the Teleport-Nerfs in Season 12 I would recommend to just go Ignite & Flash every single game.


There are 2 rune pages which you should adept to the enemy team.


This rune page will make you an oneshot assassin. You should take this one every time except the enemies are very tanky and your team already has options to take down squishies very quickly in teamfight. It's my favorite one and you will have so much fun with it.

You go Electrocute, Taste of Blood and Eyeball Collection to get maximum damage. Since Ravenous Hunter got nerfed pretty hard and now even removed from the game, the best option here is Ingenious Hunter. It synergizes very well with Hextech Rocketbelt and Banshee's Veil but the biggest advantage is, that your Zhonya's Hourglass cooldown will be much shorter so you will have it up every time you use Perfect Execution.

There are two options for the second tree. The first and preferred one is Presence of Mind and Coup de Grace to get more energy and execute damage. You want to use this one against every melee and champs that cant punish you with range advantage and poke. If they can do this you should go Second Wind and Unflinching for more sustain and tenacity so you can survive until your level 3 and 6 powerspikes.


This rune page will make you a Bruiser with higher DPS than the Assassin Build. Use this one if the enemies have many tanks, off-tanks, and tanky bruisers. It's not my preferred build but especially if you play on toplane it can be very useful.

Your keystone will be Conqueror cause the fights with the Bruiser Build will be longer and you can easy stack it with your abilities and passive attacks to get maximum DPS and healing. After the keystone you want to go Presence of Mind for extra energy which is very important in longer fights, Legend: Tenacity cause its the only one that makes sense and Coup de Grace for the execute damage.

Again there are two options in the second tree. Taste of Blood and Ingenious Hunter is the standard one for extra healing and longer fights. If you need more sustain, same reasons as above, I would recommend Second Wind and Unflinching or Overgrowth depending on the amount of cc the enemies have. If your lane opponent has no ranged spells and just wants to engage you like Sett, Renekton or Tryndamere you should exchange Second Wind and go Bone Plating



Again there are two options depending on the build you go for.

If you go for the Assassin Build with Electrocute you build Hextech Rocketbelt.

If you play Bruiser Akali with Conqueror you should build Riftmaker.

I know some people build Night Harvester but i would only recommend it for beginners that are overwhelmed by many item actives and new abilities. Its just the worse alternative to Hextech Rocketbelt with less mobility and damage. Also you cant really use the Ability Haste cause Akali is an energy champion and your cooldowns are mainly controlled by energy.
