Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png: always take this.

14.png: Take this when you are sure you can snowball your lane.

3.png: Exhaust is the best option for when you play against hyper carries like 92_64.png24_64.png114_64.png23_64.png

12.png: I've been using this a lot latelly. It gives you the oppertunity to roam botlane and pick up some kills and even a drake. This is the best option if you are vs a hardcounter or when you are against a tank. This is also the best option for 5v5 teamranked.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

0/18/12 is the one I use.

Why this? 

I go 18 In cunning for the "assassin" mastery and also for the "Merciless". I build Akali as a tank but these masteries still give you that extra dmg you need to completelly delete squishies. I also take "Savagery" to last hit easier, because Akali has a hard time last hitting in the early game because her pre 6 is so weak.
5 Points into "precision" because you need the armor pen, since you most of the times don't build 3135.png anymore, or really late into your build. 
You either go SS or TL depending of the matchup. If you are vs a squishy, go TL, if they have like 3 tanks in their comp go SS.

I take 18 in Resolve because I want my Akali to be tanky. 
So "Unyielding to get more armor and magic resist from the tank items. 
"Runic Armor" because it synergizes with my passive. 
"Insight" to make more flash plays and TP more often (very usefull if your lane is going very hard).

Since riot made Akali trash I decided to test out some other things on her and I finally found a way to make her viable again! Maxing E first, and W second is the best way to go atm. Q uses too much energy, I only take 1 point in S just to trade if I really need it.


The reason why I skill W second instead of my Q is because by maxing W the energy cost of it gets reduced, for the Q you only get more dmg but no lesser cost in her Q. Also Riot buffed Akali in patch 6.3. 
Now the energy she returns is 40 energy at all ranks instead of 20/25/30/35/40. This means that you can still use your Q to harass, since it doesn't waste that much energy. This little buff gave us the oppertunity to trade more in lane with Q without getting out of energy too fast. Note, spamming Q still does more dmg tho.

Sometimes I go the standard Akali leveling like S5 starting with Q, but thats only in rare occasions if I know I can snowball hard. (VS a squishy top for example).


Passive:


HIDDEN PASSIVE:

Ninjas have a big ego and prefer working alone. 
Akali loses -1 health for each other allied ninja. 
This applies only to the ninja characters : 84_64.png85_64.png98_64.png
So this hidden passive is actually of negative use. It's only 1-2 HP you lose tho, not sure why RIOT did this.


REAL PASSIVE:


akali passive.png


Explanation:

  • More AP = extra magical DMG
  • More AD = extra SPELLVAMP
  • The longer the game, the stronger you get.
  • having a 3146_32.png  together with this passive gives akali so much spellvamp.

Q:


Akali QQ.png

Akali spins her kama at a target enemy to deal 35 / 55 / 75 / 95 / 115 (+40% of ability power) magic damage and mark the target for 6 seconds.

Akali's melee attacks against a marked target will trigger and consume the mark to cause 45 / 70 / 95 / 120 / 145 (+50% of ability power) magic damage and restore 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 energy.

Explanation:

  • This is your main dmg ability.
  • You must spam this spell on your lane opponent whenever it's off cooldown.
  • If you are low in HP you can throw it on minions and proc the passive with an AA  to restore some HP because of your passive.
  • It restores energy when you proc it with an AA (=auto attack).
  • The passive mark lasts longer than the cooldown of it. This gives you the opportunity to double Q proc it. More if this I will mention in the COMBO section.

W:

Akali WW.png

Akali throws down a cover of smoke that lasts for 8 / 8 / 8 / 8 / 8 seconds. While inside the area, Akali gains 20 / 40 / 60 / 80 / 100% bonus movement speed and becomes stealthed. Attacking or using abilities will briefly reveal her.

Enemies inside the smoke have their movement speed reduced by 14 / 18 / 22 / 26 / 30%.

Explanation:

  • It slows enemies whenever they run over it, so use it to escape
  • You get stealthed whenever you are in this circle, unless the enemy team buys 3364_32.png2043_32.png3362_32.png or uses a reveal ability or whenever you attack. (it will still give the bonus armor and mr tho).
  • this spell can make it easier to last hit in the early levels against hard lane opponents.
  • Nice Juke Spell
  •  If you get taunted in the shroud you will not autoattack your enemy and not being revealed.
  • It reveals fog of war. So instead of facechecking a bush you can just throw W in the bush and see if anyone is in it. This also gives you the oppertunity to put it on a neutral monster camp and then R to them so you can escape without wasting your 4.png.
  • Using W under an enemy tower is NOT stupid. People always forget that you also gain bonus MS. You might not be stealthed because the tower reveals you, but you still get the bonus MS.

E:

Akali EE.png

Akali flourishes her kamas, hitting nearby units for 30 / 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 physical damage (+30% of ability power) + 60% Attack Damage.

Explanation:

  • Your waveclear spell
  • At the early levels akali her base dmg is too low to last hit under tower so you must use this spell to compensate it.
  • Use it to heal up with your passive.

R:

Akali RR.png

Akali moves through shadows to quickly strike her target, dealing 100 / 175 / 250 (+50% of ability power) magic damage.

Akali stores an Essence of Shadow on kills and assists as well as every 35 / 25 / 15 seconds up to 3 total.

Explanation:

  • Upgrading R at lvl 6 only gives you 1 stack not 3! Keep this in mind.
  • This is your gapcloser or juke ability.
  • Every time you kill or assist you will gain 1 extra stack. Only stacks up to 3 times.
  • It has NO energy cost but Essence of Shadow (EoS) and this regains pretty slow, so thik twice before you use a stack.
  • You can tower dive someone with just 1 stack kill him regain 1 stack and jump out with R again on a minion with just taking 1 tower shot.
  • When you die you regain 3 Stacks immediatelly, so at lvl 6 you can execute yourself but it's very risky. I try to hit lvl 6 have 1200+ gold in my inventory and go back and buy. When I am in the lane again i'll have 3 stacks anyway.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    I start this 99% of the times.
    When against skillshot spamming champs or vs singed.
    VS Olaf, Irelia and Elise. Because of their true dmg abilities.

Core Items

    Rush this 99% of the time
    SEASON 5 STYLE: I used this build the most. Since I play Akali toplane I feel urged to get some hp instead of more dmg that I would get from Deathcap
    SEASON 6 STYLE: This is my new build that I am currently testing and am eager to make it work. More info in the item section!

Situational Items

    offensive
    Defensive

This is my itemset:(Needs to get updated for season 6!)


Itemset Akaliii.png


My standard toplane build (SEASON 6 STYLE):


3111.png3068.png3748.png3065.png3075.png      +   3116.png or 3157.png or 3026.png

This is my new build for season 6. 
You also can also buy 3742.png instead of 3075.png if you need more HP.

PS: I am testing a 3512.png build. I will update my guide if it works out :)



I will only post the full build options here + information about the items seperately.
Which item to start against which champion i will explain in the Matchup section.


My standard toplane build (SEASON 5 STYLE):


I only build this style when I'm forced into midlane, or when I fight a squishy toplaner like 17.png133.png104.png,...

3020_32.png3146_32.png3157_32.png3285_32.png3135_32.png3116_32.png
 

The route I go most of the time is 3145_32.png > 3191_32.png > 3146_32.png > 3020_32.png > 3285_32.png3157_32.png > 3135_32.png > 3116_32.png

Notes: 
  • Skip 3191_32.png whenever you are vs an AP lane opponent.
  • Rush 3157_32.png after 3145_32.png when you lane against 122_64.png238_64.png114_64.png to block their ults. (you can also just use W to dodge 114_64.png ult).
  • I used to get 3135_32.png as 3th item before 3285_32.png but I noticed that Luden's Echo just gives more dmg then when I would build voidstaff. It's your job to focus the ADC and APC anyway, and they normally don't have so much MR at this point. If you get 3285_32.png before 3135_32.png then make sure you don't focus the players with lots of MR.
  • Sometimes I build 3157_32.png Before 3285_32.png. it's something you have to decide yourself. If you feel like they focus you hard in teamfights and if they buy 2043_32.png3362_32.png3364_32.png then you should get 3157_32.png First.


Viable items:

3146_32.png Hextech Gunblade This item is a MUST have on Akali. It synergizes so well with akali her spellvamp passive. The activate item that slows enemy champs helps you so much in catching people, even tho they flash you'll still get them. You can use this activation more then once in a teamfight since it has such a short cd and your aa's and single target spells reduces it's cooldown. This item won me 1v3 fights when I started with 300 hp against 3x full HP enemies just because you get infinite spellvamp and lifesteal.


3157_32.pngZhonya's Hourglass is one of my favorite items aswell. Whenever I run out of energy and have my spells on cd i'll just press my zhonya get invulnerable for 2.5 secs and start spamming my spells again. It helped me survive a lot of sticky situations. 

3285_32.png Luden's Echo is the item that gave our beloved Akali the power to be usefull again. Riot descided to nerf Akali and her 'E' is completely useless right now. But this item gives a lot of damage back to Akali which is good.


3100_32.png Lich Bane is a great early item aswell. Even tho it got nerfed, it still is a powerfull item. You just have to build it on Akali at some point.


3135_32.png Void Staff if they build a lot of Magic Resist (MR) then you should build this as soon as possible.


3089_32.png Rabadon's Deathcap If your adc and apc fell so hard behind so they don't deal any dmg, then you can go for this item. The reason why Deathcap is not in my standard build is because I find it a little bit overkill. Also since I play akali toplane I feel urged to get a little bit of tankyness in my build. You don't need Deathcap to oneshot ADCs, even without it you will melt the ADC.


3083_32.png Warmog's Armor I actually like building. A lot of junglers don't understand if I pick Akali top that they should build tanky. So Since I'm the one picking a non-meta champ toplane it's up to me to compensate for it. So don't flame your jungler if he doesn't build tanky, just buy a 3083_32.png instead of 3116_32.png and your team should be fine. It also gives you the opportunity to go ballsdeep and to make more mistakes. I highly recommand this item for beginner Akali toplaners.


3026_32.png Guardian's Angel got nerfed in MR and armor values but it's still a strong item. If you play vs a 105_64.png or any sort of assasin who will focus you no matter what, you should just build this item to survive it.


3124_32.png Guinsoo's Rageblade is kinda personal. I never use this since I find the attackspeed buff pretty useless and I prefer other items over this. BUt i can understand people build this for the awesome lifesteal and spellvamp passive when falling below 50% HP. So Personally I don't buy it, but I wouldn't laugh at you for building this.

3143_32.png Randuin's Omen is good to build when the enemy ADC is fed. I still prefer 3116_32.png over this tho. Only if I notice them having 3 or more AD's and a fed ADC and I notice my team has no tanks. I'll build this for the extra armor it gives instead of 3083_32.png.


3165_32.png Morellonomicon I don't really build unless they have heavy lifesteal or hp regen dependant champs like 114_64.png36_64.png50_64.png23_64.png11_64.png.


3065_32.png Spirit Visage is viable if you need the extra MR and you feel like you need more healing in the fights from your spellvamp and lifesteal. I still prefer building 3102_32.png over this even tho it got nerfed. But it's personal :)

3001_32.png  Abbysal Scepter Gives you some MR, a decent amount of AP and it also reduces the MR of the enemy team by 20. It's for sure an item to keep in mind.



 DO NOT BUILD THESE:


3206_32.png Spirit of the Spectral Wrath is not viable. Why? Well jungle Akali is CRAP. There I said it. yes it's fun in normals farming up to lvl 6 before you can start ganking.. Akali needs her items fast and you jsut don't get that in the jungle, I'm sorry.


3151_32.png Liandry's Torment is not good on Akali. There are way more better items than this one for Akali. so never upgrade 3136_32.png into this.


3025_32.png Iceborn Gauntlet is a waste to buy. You don't need the mana, and if you want a slow then just buy 3116_32.png.


3043_32.png3027_32.png3040_32.png I think this speaks for itself. Akali uses energy NO mana. So never ever dare to build this on her!



Boots:


3020_32.png Sorcerer's Shoes I take these 99% of the time.


3047_32.png Ninja Tabi's are the way to go if you are getting annoyed of 23_64.png11_64.png or something like that.


3111_32.png Mercury's Treads are the way to go if they have a lot of CC. 


3158_32.png Ionian Boots of Lucidity are NOT good for Akali. Yes it reduces the cooldown of your spells, but since Akali uses energy she'll just get out of energy so the extra cdr is no use.... The only thing it's good for is for getting your ult stacks faster. So I wouldn't buy these if I were you.


3117_32.png Boots of Mobility are good if you need to roam. Keep in mind that you'll need movement speed runes and masteries aswell then, to get the full use of it.



Extra, FUNBUILD:

Involves 3078_32.png + 3172_32.png (splitpush build). More info soon. (OUTDATED, zephyr got removed) I will see if I can find another funbuild :)

VS

Aatrox

Medium

Tips:

  • He is annoying. Since he just restores his HP with his W. So try to constant harrass him, freeze the lane and zone him from the CS so he can't heal up.
  • He is squishy so if you survive till lvl 6 you'll kill him easily.
  • You might want to build 3165_32.png to counter his W lifesteal. But if you are stomping him in lane already, then just build normally.

Playstyle:

  • Dodge his Q and E.
  • Constant harrass him with Q AA Q E.
  • Zone him from CS so he doesn't heal up.
  • All in on him when you are lvl 6 + having 3 Ult Stacks and 3145_32.png

Ahri

Easy

Tips:

  • She is squishy so if you survive till lvl 6 you'll kill her easily.
  • Stay behind creeps to avoid getting charmed.
  • If she uses her W and you are in range, active your W so you can't be hit by hers.
  • She is ranged, don't even think about trying to farm without her not punishing you for it.
  • Lvl 1-5 she wins. You win when you reach lvl 6 unless you get charmed.

Playstyle:

  • Just soak exp from minions, try to last hit without her dmg'ing you.
  • Farming under tower is the safest thing to do.
  • Use W to farm easier.
  • All in on her when you are lvl 6 + having 3 Ult Stacks and 3145_32.png

Combo:

Q > wait till Q is off CD > R > AA > W and run a little to the left or right so she doesn't taunt you > Q > E.    If she R's away just follow with your R but carefull for her charm!!

VS

Anivia

Medium

Tips:

  • As long as you dodge her Q pre 6 she can't do much to you. 
  • When lvl 6 try and bait her R. Whenever she deactivate it or whenever she misses her Q just all in her. 
  • If she plays smart she'll use her ult on your W so you can't hide into it without taking dmg. 
  • Ask your jungler for help. She will push hard with her ult so easy to gank since she has no real escapes.

Playstyle:

  • Dodge her Q pre 6 and then you can try to farm a little bit since her AA's are slow.
  • Bait her R and/or Q and all in on lvl 6. 

Combo: 

Q > wait till Q is off CD > R > AA > Q > E.  Don't use W. She'll just put her ult over it unless it's on cd.

If you aren't good at dodging her Q, then just take 3111_32.png.

VS

Annie

Hard

Tips:

  • Keep an eye on her passive. 4 Stacks = STUN !
  • Pre 6 you can't do shit, so don't even try to kill her, unless she waste her spells to farm minions then you can try to Q AA Q E her.
  • Use W to farm safely.
  • Annie can roam bot easilly at lvl 6. So ward the brush behind and/or in above the dragon pit.
  • Care for her 4.png stun at lvl 6!!!

Playstyle:

  • Just soak exp from minions, try to last hit without her dmg'ing you.
  • Farming under tower is the safest thing to do.
  • Use W to farm easier.
  • If she has 0 passive stacks and 1 or 2 spells on CD you can easilly all in and kill her. this is the only way you can win from her.
  • Best thing to do is to roam and snowball bot.

VS

Brand

Easy

Tips:

  • Easy to kill, atleast if you dodge his Q stun.
  • Don't stand close to minions who are "ablazed" by his passive cuz if he E's them you'll get dmg'ed too.

Playstyle:

  • You can farm pretty safe unless he constant AA's you.
  • Use W to farm easier.
  • All in on lvl 6 whenever there are no allied minions around.
  • Place W and stand at the edge of it, he will W in the middle of your circle so you can dodge that easy.

Skip the 3155_32.png when you got ahead.

VS

Cassiopeia

Hard

Tips:

  • Wait for her to run Out Of Mana (=oom) then you can easilly outtrade her pre 6.
  • Harrasing her pre 6 has no use. Just use Q to farm.
  • Farm under tower.
  • When she hits you with her Q, just W and wait till the posion stops.

Playstyle:

  • Dodge Q and W.
  • All in on lvl 6 but be careful for her ult. (always have atleast 2 ult stacks).

Combo:

Q > R > W > run behind her so she misses her ult or turn your champ with the face facing AWAY from 69_64.png you will still get dmg'ed and slowed, but atleast you won't get stunned, it's up to you.

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

Tips:

  • Squishy early game, constant harras him with Q + Q passive proc.
  • Dodge his Q's.
  • Buy some early HP to counter his true dmg ult.
  • don't fight with low HP cuz his ult is true dmg.
  • He needs time to stack up his ult to 6 stacks, so abuse this to snowball on him early on.
  • You can dodge his Q by jumping on him or a minion with your ult.
  • Be carefull for his silence it's annoying! 

Playstyle:

  • Constant harass with Q + Q proc.
  • Dodge Q or wait till he uses R on a minion and all in.

3136_32.png = for having more HP to counter his true dmg ult.

VS

Darius

Hard

Tips:

  • Wait for him to waste Q before trying to dmg him.
  • Wait for him to run oom to trade without wories.
  • If you get behind build hp.

Playstyle:

  • Try to double Q him by throwing Q then baiting his Q by faking that you will farm and then just back off, if it worked just run to him AA Q E. so you have procced Q twice.
  • if you play it out well you can win it easy, if you make 1 mistake you are screwed tho. Trading 1 for 1 against 122_64.png is Still worth.
  • Try to use your W well to prevent him from stacking his passive on you.

Fiora

Easy

One of the easiest matchups you can get.


Tips:

  • Whenever she uses ult just W and it should stop the ult or atleast block the dmg.
  • You outtrade her every time.
  • Whenever you q her and want to Q proc it, keep in mind she will W and it will reflect the dmg to you. So best thing to do is to fake your AA on her by canceling the AA with your S button. Wait for the W to run out and then double Q proc her.
  • You MUST take 14.png, with 12.png you'll have a hard time in the early levels, because she will always escape with like 5 hp and then rape you and escape with 5 hp again xD really frustrating 

Playstyle:

  • Play aggresive 
  • Double Q proc whenever you can.
  • Zone her from the farm.
  • All in her whenever you can, you don't even have to wait for lvl 6 to kill her, it's that easy.

VS

Fizz

Medium

Tips:

  • Whoever gets the first kill will win the lane.
  • Ward up so he can't roam to get easy kills bot. Best way is to pink the bush behind the dragon pit and a normal ward in front of the dragon or in the bush above it.
  • If he actives his W you should W aswell cuz he prolly wants to all in on you.
  • Dodge his ult! His ult reveals you if he hits it! Best thing to do is to spam your laugh so he uses his ult and then just ult on a minion to dodge it. Whenever his ult is gone you win 1v1 easy.

Playstyle:

  • Play aggresive
  • Constantly harras him with your Q procs.
  • If you dodge his ult you can easily all in him. if he hits his ult, you will die tho.

Gangplank

Easy

A matchup you don't see very often, but I'll add it anyway.


Tips:

  • He will run out of mana fast unless he goes for 2041_32.png2003_32.pngx2 2004_32.png.
  • Just harass him if he doesn't go for 2041_32.png since you have 5 2003_32.png you'll outsustain him.
  • If he goes for 2041_32.png you should be carefull with trading. If he uses his Q to farm you can trade with him, if he uses it on you, you should be farming in your W and under tower. 
  • At lvl 6 you win it easy, even if you give him an early kill. 
  • Don't fight in GP's ulti! It does more dmg then you think!
  • You can get 12.png and still win it even if he has 14.png. It's that easy :)

Playstyle:

  • if he has 2041_32.png and harasses you with Q just farm safely in W and under tower till lvl 6.
  • If he doesn't have 2041_32.png or farms minions with Q then you are free to harass him with double q as much as you can.
  • All in on lvl 6, just bait out his ult first then W away and go in again.

VS

Garen

Medium

Considered one of Akali's hardcoutners but if you play it out right with your W then this matchup is so easy.


Tips:

  •  If he wastes his Q on a minion then just start zoning and harrasing him.
  • If he Q's and runs to you just pop your W and wait till he uses it on a minion, then all in. You can kill him so easily if you play it right with your W.

Playstyle:

  • Perma Q on him so he doesn't regenerate his HP from his passive.
  • Bait his Q and pop W and wait till he uses it.
  • The only way to all in him is if he wasted his Q already, so don't be ruthless and just wait for it.

Gnar

Easy

Tips:

  • He is squishy when in his ranged form, go all in every time he is ranged!
  • Don't all in him when he is in tanky melee form, he'll just stun and combo you.
  • be carefull when he is about to transform, he will just jump on a minion close to you, and then combo you in tank form, and tbh the tankform is OP.

Playstyle:

  • passive play pre 6.
  • Lvl 6 all in him when he is in ranged yordle form, 1 combo = 60-70% of his health gone.

Tips:

  • All in when he is NOT near his towers.
  • His towers do more dmg then you think.
  • If you want to all in him he'll just stun + silecne you, and bring you very low.

Karthus

Easy

Tips:

  • If 30_64.png uses his ult, just throw W and stand in it. Yes you will still get dmg'ed even if you are stealthed, but your W gives you bonus armor and MR so you can survive the dmg easier.
  • Stay in between your minions, his Q does more dmg whenever it hits you alone.
  • He is very squishy.
  • Never stay low in lane, his ult can be surprising.

Playstyle:

  • Double Q whenever you can, he will probably just sit back and farm :/ pussies :3
  • At lvl 6 all in him, if he still plays passive in the lane, then just go roam botlane and get some kills, because 30_64.png can play very safe and it's annoying.
  • You can towerdive him and jump out of tower after you kill him with your R on a minion, just keep in mind that he will be in his passive and he can still ult you so.

Kassadin

Medium

Tips:

  • Always say SS and 2044_32.png ! I prefer2043_32.png behind the dragon pit and 2044_32.png in the bush above dragon or just in front of dragon. Putting your 3340_32.png deep in the middle of your lane can help to see if he roams or not.
  • He can't silence anymore so you can all in him at lvl 6 without any problem.
  • Steal his blue buff and he will be useless mid game.
  • If you mess up somehow then buy 3001_32.png after 3145_32.png3155_32.png to survive his burst.

Playstyle:

  • Being agressive is the best thing to do.
  • Use W to fight him, you are both melee and since your W gives bonus armor and MR you can even ank some minion dmg. 
  • At lvl 6 you can all in him to let him B, you normally can't kill him unless you forced his 4.png earlier on and you still have it up. So just hurt him let him B and go roam.

Katarina

Medium

I'll give her medium it really depends on how good this 55_64.png is. 


Tips:

  • Her Q does more dmg than your Q at the early levels, so don't try to trade.
  • She can still ult even if you are stealthed, keep that in mind.
  • W if she ults, it gives you bonus MR and armor.
  • This matchup should be easy, unless you screw up and give her a kill. Also katarina's with 500+ games can be a pain in the ass, since they dmg you with Q + W when u are under tower and then jump back out with E without taking tower dmg.
  • Always say SS and 2044_32.png ! I prefer2043_32.png behind the dragon pit and 2044_32.png in the bush above dragon or just in front of dragon. Putting your 3340_32.png deep in the middle of your lane can help to see if he roams or not.

Playstyle:

  • Farm with W and under tower.
  • Lvl 6 you can bait her ult by going all in on her, when she ults you just R back on a minion, wait for 2 R stacks and go in again.

Tips:

  • 14.png her before her passive procs so you see which one is the real one. You can do the same with Q, you can see the Q animation above the real LB, when you throw it at the right time, it takes some practise tho.
  • Always say SS and 2044_32.png ! I prefer2043_32.png behind the dragon pit and 2044_32.png in the bush above dragon or just in front of dragon. Putting your 3340_32.png deep in the middle of your lane can help to see if he roams or not.

Considered the number 1 counter of Akali. I found it a rather easy matchup to play.

Lulu

Hard

Tips:

  • If she is a good 117_64.png who abuses her range over you it will be very hard to impossible to win. If she doesn't do that howsoever you can win this.
  • I won this matchup by going instantly to your lane, kill a melee minion fast then start hitting on the ranged minions, you'll get 1 melee + 2 ranged minions down before she is in lane when she has to leach. this way you can start to double q her when she wants to farm. 
  • 12.png is the way to go, if you get lucky you can kill her when you all in on lvl 6, if so you can snowball.

Playstyle:

  • Do the minion trick at lvl 1 as mentioned above if possible. If she is in lane immediately then just farm safely under tower and in your W.
  • You can all in her on lvl 6, but throw your W before you do so to reduce her dmg and if she makes you a squirle you are still stealthed, that's the only way to win the trade by placing your W correctly or if you can dodge her Q.

Lux

Easy

Tips:

  • Use your W when you have her passive on you so she can't proc it.
  • Don't get snared when having less then 60% hp. she'll combo you and you'll die, best thing to do when you get snared is try to W as fast as possible so you get the armor and MR bonus.
  • Look at her summoners! If she has 21.png + E shield she completely nullifies your dmg!
  • Go all in when her Q (snare) is on CD.

Playstyle:

  • She is ranged you are melee, if she abuses her range AA's on you then just farm safely, if she doesn't you can start double Q proccing her.
  • At lvl 6 bait her Q (snare) if she misses it just all in her, you should get an easy kill unless she has 21.png.

Maokai

Hard

This matchup is hard, this guy has so much cc, dmg and tankyness... You see a lot of Maokai's top lately.


Tips:

  • Whenever he throw a sapling just run from it let the minions tank it.
  • Run around a lot, he will try to hit you with his slow / knock up line. if you are good at dodging these you'll win the lane.
  • Get 12.png and roam, he'll deal 10000 dmg, has 10000 hp and 10000 CC. you can outplay him if you are lucky, but I wouldn't hope for it.
  • Carefull for the jungler, 57_64.png can just lock you up for a very long time, it's easy for the junglers to kill you then.
  • If they have 64_64.png jungle and 57_64.png top you are really fucked my friend, best thing to do is just dodge and wait 5 mins for another matchup.

Playstyle:

  • Dodge his skills, simple as that.
  • You can try to all in him lvl 6. but even if you kill him, he'll still be super tanky so best thing to do is to roam and help other lanes to snowbal, to win the game.

Morgana

Medium

Tips:

  • Dodge her Q's, if she hits her Q you simple are dead (if she is lvl 6).
  • She deals more dmg with her W whenever you are lower in HP!
  • If you all in on her at lvl 6, leave some minions alive so you can jump to them if she ults you.
  • She can still ult even if you are stealthed, then people can land skillshots because they see the ult line between you and her, keep that in mind.

Playstyle:

  • Farm till lvl 6.
  • Bait her ult at 6 then all in her.

Olaf

Medium

Tips:

  • You can't all in him when he is full Hp, so get him down to 60% hp by double Q proccing at lvl 6 and then afterwards you can all in him.
  • Carefull for his early game dmg, it is insane.
  • give hil 1 kill and you'll lose the lane 100%

Orianna

Medium

Tips:

  • Just dodge her balls and she can't do much then.
  • Use your W often, even if she hits you then it will deal less dmg because of the bonus MR and armor your W gives.
  • Take a look to her summoner spells. If she has 21.png she will be hard to kill at lvl 6.

Playstyle:

  • Farm safely in your W and under tower.
  • All in on lvl 6, keep in mind she can have 21.png.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

This is a matchup you DON'T want to play.


80_64.png is such a lane bully, spam Q every 2 sec to win. GG

Tips:

  • If the pantheon goes for 2041_32.png + pots you are fucked and you can't do anything than to farm safely under tower and 12.png to get some kills botlane when lvl 6+.
  • If the pantheon goes for 1055_32.png2003_32.png howsoever, you can win the lane when he runs out of mana. This is the only way you will win the lane.
  • Ask your jungler to babysit your lane, if he can get you start rolling you should be fine.

Playstyle:

  • Farm under tower and in W.
  • Keep an eye on the other lanes for 12.png opportunities.
  • You can't win this matchup, you shouldn't even try unless he goes the 1055_32.png start.

  • Punish him when he uses spells on minions
  • Playing with 12.png is the best option to go, but keep in mind you have no chance to kill him. If you want to try to kill him you should take 14.png to counter his ult.

Ziggs

Hard
This is pretty hard since he has so much spammable AoE, he can just throw everything in your W. The only good thing is that he is squishy and if he doesn't play carefull you can kill him, if he plays passive howsoever then there is nothign to do for you in this lane then to roam.

Tips:

  • Survive pre 6 and you should kill him post 6 easy!
  • W after he throws his minefield! Otherwise he'll just minefield your W and you can't do anything.
  • If he wastes his E (his knock up thing), then go all in on him, he can't do anything to you then.
  • R on a minion whenever he ults you.

Playstyle:

  • Survive until lvl 6 by farming under tower and in W (hard to do so since he'll just spam spells on your W).
  • Go all in on him when reaching lvl 6.
  • If he plays really passive, just start to roam and ask your jungler to hold mid, since he can waveclear very fast. YOu might consider taking 12.png instead of 14.png even tho it takes away some kill potentional.

Ability Combos Back to Top

UPDATED! 


Laning phase Pre 6:

akali-mark-of-the-assassin.pngClock.png64spellsword.pngakali-mark-of-the-assassin.pngakali-crescent-slash.png

Q > Wait for Q cd to be up again > AA (=auto attack) > Q > E > AA (=auto attack)



This is the standard combo you should use in laning phase. It's called the double Q proc.


Laning phase post 6: (POKE)

akali-mark-of-the-assassin.pngClock.pngShadow_Dance.jpg64spellsword.pngakali-mark-of-the-assassin.pngakali-crescent-slash.png

Q > Wait for Q cd to be up again > R > E > AA > Q > AA  > RUN
This is the best combo to use when you have your ult.

Note: You don't have to wait to have your Q cooldown on 0 sec. You can also go in when you have Q on 1-2 secs cooldown. Most of the time I Q then run around zoning him or I back off like I don't want to do anything so he comes closer, then just R and complete the combo. Do what ever you like zone or kill :)


Chasing: (Before 'e' nerf)

Shadow_Dance.jpgakali-mark-of-the-assassin.png64spellsword.pngakali-crescent-slash.png

R > Q > AA > E OR R > Q > E > AA

This combo you should use when you are trying to catch someone. AA before E because E has a bigger range then your AA.



Using Shroud (W) Correctly Back to Top

I will show you some ways how to juke with your shroud (W). So that next time you are in a sticky situations, you keep those in mind and you can be creative with your jukes. Knowing how to use your W correctly makes the difference between a good akali and a GOD Akali. Same for using her Ult.


Note: the shroud is actually bigger than it shows. so walking just on the edge will still make you stealthed! Placing your W correctly actually takes a lot of time to practise.


1) Midlane topbush:

1aa.png

A lot of ways to go like this, you can run down up or down att the other side of the wall.



2) Bushes above dragon:

2a.png

If you place it correcly you can go into the bush unnoticed AND you can walk around the wall while still being stealthed.



3) Under purple/red side blue buff:

3.png

Here same concept.



4) Bush above blueside red buff:

4.png

Here too.



5) Tribush under purple/red side blue buff:

5.png

Speaks for itself.



6) Blue buff:

6.png

I warded the wolves. so this way you could escape by ulting onto the wolves if you really want to tryhard :)



7) Tribush under toplane:

7.png

A lot of options here.



8) Toplane bushes:

8.png

If I get ganked and I'm too deep, I'll place my shroud (W) like this to confuse the enemies. if you pushed your lane you could escape by ulting their minions under their tower and escape through tribush and spamping your team to help you.



9) Baron jump with shroud

You can ward baron or just place your W like this and then go stand at the purple/pink thingy and ult over. You won't even take dmg from baron cuz you get insta stealthed if you use a shroud instead of a ward.



10) Wight jump

10.png

Be creative with your W and ult.



11) Golem Jump

11.png

Same trick as with the wight.



12) Wraith Jump

12.png

here you can ult the wraith or just walk around it, depending of your own preference.



There are many more options than these, but I guess you got my point. I hope I inspired you to thik before you place your W. Just be creative and thoughtfull and escaping is easy with Akali :)

Your W is your thinking time to make plays with Akali but you have to think before placing it. I prefer having 5 options to consider and try than only 2 options cuz you missplaced your W .

Teamfights Back to Top

Focus & patience

It's your job to kill the ADC and/or the APC, unless you can take someone offguard ofcourse.

The best way to teamfight is to wait out till the fight started and for the important CC to be gone.
for example when you play vs 1_64.png54_64.png9_64.png32_64.png54_64.png62_64.png61_64.png79_64.png85_64.png89_64.png127_64.png,....
Just wait till they waste their ult then you can go in and have easy kills.


Never Engage

You should never engage unless you are 100% sure you can kill your target and then stealth away with W or pop zhonya and being 100% sure your team will react, if that's not the case then just wait for the cc to be used on your teammates. If you go warmogs on Akali how ever and you are the only tank of your team you might consider what i just mentioned earlier about the zhonya thing.


Try not to use shroud (W)

Why? Well it's very simple, it costs a lot of energy, and in the fights you want to spam all your other spells. If you have waited long enough before the hard cc is out you won't need your W anyway.
Only use your W when you really got into a sticky situation like getting caught or a support who perma cc's you or something or when you have killed someone and wat to repositionate.


Peeling?

Sometimes when your adc is doing well you might consider peeling for him instead of engaging to kill their useless adc. Sometimes it's just better to protect your fed teammates then to kill theirs.


Someone got caught off guard?

If you notice that someone of your team went solo and died, there is no point in going in aswell and dying too. Just danger ping the place and get the hell out of there. Just go defend with your team.


Flanking


Flanking can be usefull to do. let your team start the fight and then come from behind to kill the ADC or APC easily. They can't flash away cuz then they would flash into your team.

General Tips & Tricks Back to Top

  • Her Q doesn't aggro minions. So you just can throw your q and keep farming. Whenever you proc the Q it aggro's the minions tho.
  • It's best not to use your ult for farming at the early levels. It has a very high cooldown (30secs) so just don't do that.
  • Whenever you reach lvl 6 you only get 1 ult stack! You will have 3 ult stacks after 1 min. What I do is, I farm untill lvl 6 and then I go shop. By the time I am back in lane I'll have my 3145_32.png and 3 ult stacks.
  • Using your E to often gets you out of energy very soon. It's dmg is not so high anyway so don't use it too much.
  • Surprise your enemies with double Q proc. They won't expect you to chunck 50%+ of their hp with just 1 combo. Try to Double Q throughout the whole laning phase.
  • Your R is faster then your Q so keep in mind if you Q R that you'll have to wait to proc the Q till it actually hit the target.
  • Don't forget to use the activation items 3157_32.png3146_32.png.
  • the new jungle camp is actually a small buff to Akali since she has 1 more option to juke to.
  • You can steal baron with your ult standing outside of the baron pit.
  • Your shroud (W) can reveal neutral monsters, so you can use it to escape from sticky situations.
  • You can use your Q & W ability to zone out people. Throwing W on your enemy can sometimes scare them of or slow them hard enough to miss a CS.
  • Farmblocking: Sometimes when you stand on/next to your own minion that has low hp, and the enemy wants to target it, it is possible that he can't click the minion because your champion hitbox is over the minion hitbox. So You will take the dmg but he misses the farm. So whenever see your cannon minion getting low, just stand on or really close next to it, so the enemy can't click on it and fails to get this gold.

Counters / Synergy Back to Top

Counters in toplane

58_64.png Renekton will just eat you. If you get lucky you might get a kill on him and maybe get some more by luck and snowball out of it. My advice is to just take 12.png and try to get kills this way cuz you won't have much killpotentional at toplane cuz he is just an too big of a lane bully.


122_64.png Darius can be a hard champ to lane against too. But this one is easier to outplay tho. Just bait his Q buy faking you going in but then just running out again. If he wasted his Q you are freelo to farm or harass him. At lvl 6 you can outplay him if you play with your W correctly. if he buys a 3155_32.png then I would think of killing him unless he has 12.png and you have14.png.


86_64.png Garen is another lane bully but is pretty easy to outplay. Just wait till he Q's then use your W, wait till he wastes his Q on a minion and then go all in on him. Throughout the lane you should perma Q him so he doesn't regenerate HP from his passive.


80_64.png Pantheon is one of the most annoying toplaners there is. He just spams Q's and blocks 10000 AA's of you. I would recommend to just farm safe and take 12.png to roam bot and get some kills there. Best thing to do is ban him.


117_64.png Lulu is so annoying aswell. She can reveal you from stealth with her Pixie. She has a strong shield that is low on CD and a big movement speed buff aswell. If you go onto her she will just slow you permanently, turn you into a squirle and ult. I find this one of the hardest match ups. Just farm up till 6. You can try to all in her, if you get lucky you can kill her. But also here I would go for 12.png.


Counters in general


64_64.png Lee Sin got nerfed pretty hard and if you don't make to big mistakes you win easy against him in lane.
The problem whatsoever is Lee Sin in the jungle. His Q and E will make you visable and thus you can't stealth. Best thing to do is just ban him.


10_64.png Kayle can be annoying. She can just ult the champ you are focussing and it can be annoying since you need those ult stacks resets.


26_64.png Zilean is the same as kayle with his ult.


115_64.png Ziggs just has too much AoE to handle. using your W has no use since he'll jsut throw his minefield , ult and Q's on it.


4_64.png Twisted Fate will just use his ult and reveal you out of your stealth.


107_64.png Rengar same as 4_64.png.


25_64.png Morgana can ult without seeing you. Then there is a line between you and her and people can use skillshots on you.


18_64.png Tristana is unreachable for you. You use 1 R to get to her and then she just jumps away. Then you waste another stack and then she ults you away. and if you then use another stack then she'll just 4.png away. so if you ever have to pick an ADC against 84_64.png you should pick Tristana.


412_64.png Thresh can just make too many plays, 1 lucky hook and he drags you out of your shroud (W) or he just knocks you out with his E.


40_64.png Janna will just ult you away whenever you ult or she'll just put a tornado on you so it interupts your jump.


201_64.png Braum is just too strong at this moment. He can just knock everyone up with his ult and perma slow/ stun you.


Synergy


55_64.png Katarina is so strong. If you both target the same opponents they will get instant deleted and you will both get your resets. Seriously try it, you will be amazed of your dmg.


9_64.png Fiddlesticks is great too with Akali. He just ults in and fears an important opponent or the support/tank because you insta burst the squishies anyway.


127_64.png Lissandra's ult just deals so much dmg, and also slows everyone around the stunned target. Easy for you to pick up some kills.


59_64.png Jarvan IV is perfect in splitting up the enemy team with his ult. Perfect for you to follow up and take some kills.


1_64.png Annie can just flash ult the enemy team and stun  some important champs. Easy for you to kill stunned champs :)


32_64.png Amumu is the same as 1_64.png Just stunning the whole enemy team.


201_64.png Braum just has so much CC he's great to have in your team.


89_64.png Leona her ult engage can turn a fight around so hard. Again easy kills for you if you react to this.

Things that stop your stealth Back to Top

The following abilities can reveal invisible units for a period of time:

51_64.png Caitlyn's Yordle Snap Trap.png Yordle Snap Trap

51_64.png Caitlyn's Ace in the Hole.png Ace in the Hole, if her target stealths themselves during the channel

64_64.png Lee Sin's Tempest.png Tempest and Sonic Wave.png Sonic Wave

43_64.png Karma's Focused Resolve.png Focused Resolve and Renewal.png Renewal will fully reveal enemies who become stealthed after she casts it.

117_64.png Lulu's Help, Pix!.png Help, Pix! will reveal enemies if they stealth themselves while Pix is attached to them.

76_64.png Nidalee's Bushwhack.png Bushwhack

56_64.png Nocturne's Duskbringer.png Duskbringer will provide semi-reveal. Though stealthed unit will still be immune to autoattacks and targeted spells, Duskbringer's trail will compromise the position of said unit for 5 seconds, even through movement.

91_64.png Talon's Noxian Diplomacy.png Noxian Diplomacy causes struck enemies to leave behind a trail of blood even during stealth, similarly to Nocturne's aforementioned Duskbringer.

4_64.png Twisted Fate's Destiny.png Destiny will reveal all enemy champions.

107_64.png Rengar's Thrill of the Hunt.png Thrill of the Hunt reveals all nearby enemy champions inside the ability radius.

25_64.png Morgana's Soul Shackles.png Soul Shackles can be casted without seeing you. It doesn't reveal you but since there is a line between you and her, her team can still use skillshots on you.


The Following items reveal you aswell:

2043_32.png Vision Ward (5v5 only)

3364_32.png Oracle's Lens (5v5 only)

3362_32.png Greater Vision Totem (5v5 only)

2047_32.png Oracle Elixer (3v3 / dominion only)

3185_32.png The Lightbringer (3v3 / dominion only)

3187_32.png Hextech Sweeper (3v3 / dominion only)

3159_32.png Grez's Spectral Lantern (3v3 / dominion only)

Why Akali top and not mid? Back to Top

these are the reasons why i prefer Akali top over mid:

  • She is melee, since almost all the midlaners are ranged, it's hard to farm pre 6 at mid. On toplane there are way more melee's to face, so easier to farm and harass at the early levels.
  • No real hardcounters at top. Mid she is preyy easy to counter, but toplane I have had no lane that really was a hell for me. 117_64.png80_64.png76_64.png come close to hard tho.
  • Double Q'ing is just so strong, and you can't use that vs ranged champs pre 6.
  • Toplane is longer than midlane what gives you the oppertunity to make more plays and chase longer.
  • Only 1 side you can get ganked from and thus easier to survive your lane. 
  • Brushes at toplane give you the change to make plays when you get ganked and even win 1v2.
  • You can still use TP to get easy kills on botlane. 
  • Toplane is like a little island, you can play your game without having to worry getting ganked by 4 people.

EDIT: 6.12: I think Akali mid is better now, because you can onehsot squishy with just 1-2 AP items and have a full tank build afterwards.

About me Back to Top

Hi guys, first of all thank you for reading my guide, I hope you learned some new stuff from reading it.


I am 19 years old and I live in Belgium the land of Krepo and Sjokz.


I am a currently diamond 2 solo q player.
I play this game since end of season 1.

I use smartcast to cast everything faster but I still have the range indicator on it.
I do play with locked screen but whenever I need it I unlock my camera. But sometimes there is just no need for it :)

About getting diamond. You don't have to be that good to reach it actually. You'll just have to understand the game, like when pushing a tower, when should you do drake etc etc.

You can get diamond by just playing Akali only easily.
I like hypercarries on toplane a lot, since they can still carry even tho botlane loses, you can still oneshot a fed adc.

I hope to stream in the future, if you have any questions just add me on skype: Pro_Or_Noob.

match.png

I'm currently in the top 246 of the world on Akali on the site www.lolskill.net .
You might think wow only 89 games on Akali, but I actually have played over 1k games with her in normals and smurfs etc etc.

Coaching how to play Akali Back to Top

At the moment i don't teach Akali. I get a lot of requests, but right now i'm not really playing Akali because of this E nerf and i'm pretty busy with school.


1. Whe are going 1v1 Akali vs Akali to see how you play her.

2. Whe'll play the matchups you have trouble with for example. If you can't win from 122_64.png i'll play him and tell you what you do wrong. Afterwards we'll turn it around and I'll play Akali and you 122_64.png so you can see how I play the match up.

3. You'll send me 5 replays from games you want me to comment on. And I'll tell you what you did good or bad.

4. If you have any questions about a match up or anything about Akali i'll answer them for you.

5.  I'll teach you how to carry as toplane Akali.


Ofcourse I can't do this for free. 
I ask 25 € for max 5 hours of lessons. (we can talk about the price if you think it's too much).

Interested?

Friendship ruined by penta kill denial? Back to Top


That would have been my 4th penta kill with Akali in ranked that week and 5th penta of that week in total :(

This was a 5v5 full ranked team.

I'll keep that in mind SUPPORTorSUPPORT ;D
