I'd like to buy these runes for Akali but I have no idea if they'll work.

9x mark of insight (+0.95 magic penetration)
9x seal of vitality (+1.08 health per level)
9x glyph of shielding (+0.15 magic resist per level)
3x quintesence of strength (+2.25 attack damage)

I'll be getting +3 attack damage from masteries (21/9/0) for a total of +9.87 bonus attack damage to unlock 8% spell vamp. Do you think this is a viable rune setup for ranked play? Please tell me.

It's viable, but most people(me included) would suggest you to unlock the second bonus aswell.
I run
2xFlat MPen and 7xFlat AD Marks
Health/lvl Seals(Or flat armor when im top)
Flat AP Glyphs
AP Quints

Also, don't overestimate ranked play. It's basically normals with more ragers.

Doesn't unlock both halves of her passive. It should be more like:

AD/flat Marks
HP/lvl or Armor/flat Seals
AP/lvl or MR/flat or MR/lvl Glyphs
AP/flat Quintessences

21 points in offense, taking Brute Force , Mental Force , Arcane Knowledge , Blast , Archmage , and Executioner will give you the amount of ability power required for both halves of your passive.

This, but I suggest taking only four flat AP Glyphs and the rest AP per level.

What I have right now for going mid with Akali is 2x MPen marks, 7x flat AD marks, 2 AP quints, 1 flat HP quint, HP/lvl seals, 5x flat AP glyphs and 4x flat MR glyphs. If you were to go top lane you would take the same quints and marks, but have armor seals and 4x flat AP and 5x AP/lvl glyphs.


Thanks to The Nameless Bard and Vavena for the sigs!

These tips definitely saved me some IP, thanks so much!

I got myself a setup that unlocks both passives at lvl 1:

7 flat damage marks
2 mpen marks
9 hp/lvl seals
9 mres/lvl glyphs
3 flat ap quints

With +3 ad, +3 ap, +1 ap/lvl and +5% ap from masteries it's actually enough to unlock both passives from the get-go. Only downside is that I had to skip havoc and don't have the +1.5% damage. The awesome thing is that I only had to unlock the 7 damage marks and the quits, the rest I already had.

Yeah like many times said, you need to combine Marks with Masteries, so you activate your passives without items. I take

7 Flat Damage Marks
2 Magic Penetration Marks
Flat Armor Seals
Ability Power per Level Glyphs
Flat Ability Power Quints

I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

That's what I use on my Akali, except I take health per level seals, the extra health in late game is really nice.
Thanks for the sig Nameless Bard
