Summoner Spells Back to Top

The Meta kit


Personally, I use flash/TP everytime.

4.png 
A must have, it can help you to get a kill easily, escape, going back into your shroud.

12.png
In the actual meta, 95% of your opponents will have it too. You can split push really hard thanks to it or even TP for a drake/baron. And trust me, i lost few times my lane, and getting some kills on the bottom lane can make you come back.



Other options:


14.pngIf you don't feel comfortable with TP, you can use ignite. However, like i told you, most of your opponents will use TP.
pro: Get a kill early easily
con: less mobility and team support.

On the other hand, ignite become less powerful than TP in late game because you don't really need it to get a kill. Unless if you have this lil goat as an enemy support. 16.png

akalimota.png Starting with this one is the best choice possible. It can help you to get few ranges last hits. Max in second.
akalismokebomb.png If the enemy like to poke you while you farm, don't hesitate to take it in second instead akalishadowswipe.png
akalishadowswipe.png OP, 1sc CD level 9, you can clean a wave in few lil seconds thanks to it. (even faster with 3068.png)
akalishadowdance.png Don't forget that everytime you make a kill/assist, you will gain 1 charge.


akalipassive.png That's why hybrid builds are so strong.

VS

Azir

Medium

It might be hard until level 6. Then you will be enough tanky and mobile to kill him. 

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

Pain in the ass in early with a lots of poke. Be patient until your 6, build MR and stomp her.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Do not trade him. His R can stomp you easily.

VS

Corki

Medium

You just have to be careful of his Q in team fight. It can reveal you in your shroud.

VS

Darius

Hard

Lane bully. Take care if he play like a d*ckhead with ignite. Play safe and farm under your tower. darius will outdamage you in early, wait your jungler if you want to trade.

VS

Fiora

Hard

Be careful, even more if she buy a pink level 6.

Garen

An other Lane bully for Akali, he will poke you with his Q/E combo. If Garen want to kill you, he will probably flash Q&R you. So be careful when you have less than 40% HP.

VS

Gnar

Medium

Trade him only after his transformation.

VS

Lee Sin

Hard

Normally, your W allow you to temporize a fight. With lee, you are kinda screwed. His E is your worst enemy. Keep in mind that he will want to camp your lane all the early game. Ward well and avoid him in TF.

Tanky AF, deal nice damages for his toughness. Try to dodge his E. Do not trade him while he's under his W shield.

Rumble zoning through is Q is insane. Don't stay too long in the creep wave or he will burn you. However, don't let him push too much.

VS

One of the god tier top champions ATM. Deal insane damage with his Q. Can snowball super fast.Stay near your turret.

Pros & Cons of playing a sexy ninja Back to Top

Akali the sexiest ninja Pros & Cons

Pros:


  • High mobility
  • Super Nice damages for her toughness
  • 2.02% Pick rate and 1.15% Ban rate according to champion.gg (So she will be most of the time free for you)
  • Kinda exotic pick (most of people are not really use to play an Akali Tank)
  • High carry potential

Cons:


  • Low damages early
  • General weak early game
  • A lots of hard match up in the actual Meta
  • Opponents will try to use a pink ward as a dildo on you.

Few Tips Back to Top

General tips


  • akalismokebomb.png give you vision, you can use it through a wall for jumping with your akalishadowdance.png on an enemy or jungle camp.
  • Use the 3748.png active for activate the akalimota.png mark. (You will see, their ADC will probably complain about the burst.)
  • Be careful, Akali can run out of energy super fast.
  • It's hard to put an Akali out of the game, so even if you have a crappy KDA, never give up, you can come back just with a good team fight
  • If you are chasing someone, most of the time it's better to wait to hit him with akalimota.png before jumping on him with akalishadowdance.png


Lanning Tips


  • Let the opponent push his lane and farm near your turret.
  • Use your akalismokebomb.png for a safer creep last hit
  • Use akalishadowswipe.png for a fast depush (only 1sc CD level 9 !)
  • If your lane is push don't hesitate to kill the gromp or the two golems 
  • You can hide in your akalismokebomb.png everytime you hit an enemy until the Grasp of the Undying is available again.
  • Buy pink ward  and use it here:
Spot 1: Best spot possible if you are right side.
Spot 2: Put your ward here if you are left side and your lane is kinda pushed.
Spot 3: If you are left side, your lane is pushed and you are afraid of a tower dive.
Spot 4: Can be useful against stealthy jungler like Eve or Rengo

Team Fight Tips


  • If enemy team got pink ward. You can try to bate it with a fake engage/shroud (tell your team your intention first)
  • You are a tanky assassin, fodge, jump in and ice their midlaner and ADC
  • If they are focusing you hardly, you can try to go back with your R

Synergie Back to Top

Akali need to go ahead for dealing damages. Any champions able to jump with her can be a good synergie.

Here you are few exemples.


Any Jungler with a good gap closer or good mobility. Can be insane if he have few crowd control

238.png
I like to play with Zed in my team, he can really help you to burst down a target before going back in a safer zone.


Early / Mid / Late gameplay Back to Top

Early Game

Most of the match up in the actual meta will be hard for you. What you need to do is farm near your turret (but not too near if possible, it's better to stop the enemy wave before your turret can hit it.)
So, stay safe, ward well, don't be afraid to buy few potions and pink ward.

When you will be level 6, you can ask your jungler for an easy kill (it's better to wait your 3 stacks of ultimate)

And if you play with 12.png, try to use it to stomp enemy bot lane and getting a drake. Map awareness is the key.


Mid Game

 
Around 20mn you should have these 3 items: 3111.png3068.png3065.png
You will deal decent damages against the ADC/Midlaner. Don't hesitate to jump on them if enemy team don't have a lot of CC. At the same time, they will start to drop few pink ward in team fight. Watch out about their items.

It's only when you will have 3748.png that things will becoming serious...


Late Game


Now you bought all your items. Enemy too (normally). Your job will be kinda the same than the mid game. Try to stomp enemy carries, jump back on the enemy tank if he's low life and your carries are in struggle. 

Don't hesitate to split push with your 12.png

About me Back to Top

Hello friends !

Hey everyone, i'm Skheo, 23 years old french student in IT.
I started playing LoL during the first month of the release. I played for few years straight before i decided to stop. I just came back this season.

I'm far from a proplayer and i'm just making this guide for sharing my love about Akali. I really like her at this moment. The tanky style build is really awesome and made me climb silver IV to plat V in just a month

It's probably not the best guide that you will find on internet but i will keep it up to date.

English is not my native language, so, i'm sorry for my grammar... :)

Hope you will enjoy the guide !
