I approve of the changes to akali. I never really liked how she had to have her own rune page. Now, that's no longer an issue ^^

The only downsides to akali are that she doesn't bring much CC to a team fight, and she isn't really tanky. You're pretty damn reliant on a strong jungler to take damage for team fights
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!

Warmog's Armor + Twilight Shroud is pretty damn tanky. It might not be quite as tanky as some top laners, but it's more than people like Kha'Zix usually get, so I don't think that's a particularly crippling downside.
Thanks to The_Nameless_Bard for the sig!

I think the change to Akali is nice, maybe even necessary. I remember feeling very annoyed of not having my passive before I got items because I did not have the specific rune page for her.
If I helped you out, +REP me ^_^

I really don't see a difference. This always happens with FOTM champs. Nothing really changes, but all of a sudden everyone decides that they're now much better and the people who played them when they weren't popular are just sitting back like "What?" I had something like an 80-90% win rate with her in season two and only ever went negative with her twice. She's always had that "Hit six, become legendary" thing going for her. People are just now recognizing it. It's just like what happened to ezreal.

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

as long as there is no cc, Akali is very tanky, or rather, tanky enough.


As requested to GMD himself.

Thats what i had said, i only said shes even stronger now as you are not forced into a non optimal rune page for the champion.

And yes u only need like Gunblade, and maybe 1-2 more offensive items to do enough damage.
I will usually get Zhonia and Warmogs and become very tanky.

I pray she doesn't become FOTM..
I don't want another nerf just because people play her a lot. :(

Now that you don't need the AD you can safely go AP Assassin which helps a lot

As a guy who hasn't played much Akali yet - curious whether you think she fits better at the moment top or mid. I know she can do both - but is she more optimal in one or the other? And what runes are you running on her now - mpen reds with ap quints? Thanks!
