But i dont have any runes that are recommended for her in most guides...and every1 tells me she is usually banned in Ranked matches :/ bummer.

She was frequently banned some time ago but she is not banned so frequently now, especially not in higher ELO. People just learned how to counter her and quickly take her down. So if you're very good, you maybe should play her. You can build runes from AP page with Flat AD marks. So you trigger both passives you need 7 Flat AD Marks(other 2 are your choice, i prefer MrP) and other are you're choices, I prefer Armor Seals and Flat AP Quints with AP/level Glyphs.

Akali at level 20 is pretty rough.

If you're going to play her without runes, i suggest doran's blade start, and then go Boots>Revolver>gunblade

After gunblade, you should build Rylai's, Deathcap, Lichbane, and probably a GA.

The order you should build them in is kind of w/e you need at the time, but that's the standard build.

Advice for you (if you're looking into Akali), is to learn how to use her stealth mechanisms for both offense and defense. It's what makes or breaks Akali. Someone who just pops their circle (can't remember the name for the life of me) and just runs out of it is way to easy to kill.

Twilight Shroud isn't protection, never think it's going to guarantee you escape. I'm not an akali player, but I can't tell you how many times I've just stood in the middle waiting to see which way the akali would try to run because I have absolutely nothing to fear from a champ with 1 hit left. If you're going to drop it to try and cover your escape, do so bordering a bush so it's harder for them to tell where you are and more risky to face-check.

Also, don't bother trying to Twilight Shroud against Skarner... He'll just ulti you when you appear and you'll get nuked by his whole team :P

EH you can easily escape when in Twilight Shroud. I've juked enemy so many times...But sure, if there are 4 of them camping on you, then you won't escape, unless they are dumb.

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

I frequently use Akali in ranked, you dont really need to use a specific rune page for her, just use a generic AP page, magic pen reds, flat AP yellows, and AP per level blues. as for the early game spell pen, I just get dorans's blade, People will laugh..... untill you go legendary. Akali has a kinda steep learning curve :P but all you need to do is harrass until lvl 6 then you can just R to the enemy throw down a Twilight Shroud and Q+E like crazy and the kills will just come in.
