League of Legends (LoL) Question: Can Akali still jungle after her rework?

    Can Akali still jungle after her rework?

    I like off-meta junglers and I used to play akali jungle too. It was okay because of her passive healing and her E.

    So im wondering if it's still okay after her rework. I have seen a few videos, but with a variety of different play styles. AD and AP seem both viable, but I don't have that much experience with new akali yet, so I don't know what's better, or maybe hybrid.

    Anyone who knows a good build path and rune setup?

    Akali jungle would be much more viable if her passive could trigger off of jungle monsters. Thatis her main source of damage early as her Q has a long cooldown and requires a lot of energy. Is it doable? I'm sure there are ways to make it work. Is it worth the effort? Absolutely not. Yasuo jungle is much more viable and he hasn't ever been considered a good jungle pick since his release. The off-meta pick at the moment is Fizz. I would say Camille, but she is pretty much a meta jungler now. She is really good jungling though.

    Thanks for your answer!
    Youre right about her passsive. I hope riot changes her passive so it also affects large monsters. It probably won't make her meta, but it would be doable.

    Fizz jungle is something I am going to try soon. Haven't tried Camille yet but she seems fun to play.

    Nope, it's terrible. Her passive doesn't work against monsters, her Q has a massive energy cost so she has no way to spam it, and her E has a very long cooldown. Akali has literally zero sustained damage, her clear is garbage.

    Previous Akali was semi-viable as a jungler because her Q and E had short cooldowns and her passive worked on monsters.

    If you like off-meta junglers, give Fizz jungle a try. The rework gives him a pretty good clear, I think it's really strong right now.

    Thx for your answer!

    Yeah it sucks that her passive doesn't affect monsters. I hope Riot changes it a little so it also affects large monsters, maybe with a little cooldown so it doesn't get too busted.

    Fizz jungle is actually a thing i was planning to try! The changes to his W seem really good.
