Ignite + Flash for most DPS (damage per second) and since Akali is a master assassin, this compliments her.


Cleanse + Flash if you want to play passive and safe, works best against dangerous CC.

R > Q > E > W


Q should be maxed first since it is your main damage dealer and CD's are lowered. Next is E for added damage and lowered cooldown and energy cost. Finally, W last for utility and resistance.

There will be certain scenarios when W will be prioritized first. Mainly against bursters since the added resistance can help you take the load.

Items

Start With
Core
Situational

Start

Start with boots + 4 pots if against a standard AP caster, this will help you effectively harass and be mobile against jungle ganks. If against an aggressive AD mid, go armor + 5 pots (can substitute a ward) to be able to farm and win the battle of attrition since you have more pots.

Core

Akali doesn't scale very well with AP items, a straight MPEN build makes her more deadly to deal with. 
Make sure to get your MPEN boots on your first back + pots and wards, you will be around lvl 5-6. Getting MPEN boots first allows you to burst the enemy to half HP with a mere Q > R > AA or E combo. They will be unable to stay in lane and are zoned until you're out of essences. Some will be overzealous and try to overextend and CS therefore will result to their death. 

With the new added spectral wraith, it gives a whopping 20% spell vamp and 10% cooldown reduction. It brings dominance in lane and fast neutral camp clears on the fly.

Your 1st major item will depend on the situation. Your choices are; Abyssal if against AP heavy team, Rabadons if resistance isn't needed (rare case), Rylais if lacking CC, Gunblade against long skirmishes, and Zhonya's against AD heavy.

Situational

A GA rush after your core items only if you are dominating the enemy team. If the team is being dominated, you will be ahead in lvls and therefore don't need your first major item.

I would like to see more info. What happens if you get behind? What about if your ahead, should I change my build? How should I play if there is a counter mid? Should I change my build then?

Why haunting guise before hextech? I always feel like the spellvamp saves me more.

Excellent questions, I will shed light to them!

It gets really tricky when you get behind, the opposing mid will have far greater pressure than you so they will either push your mid or create havoc elsewhere. You will have to start roaming or coordinate ganks, I believe this will be the only way for you to get back on track.

If against a counter mid, I have put up some guidelines in the match-up section. Also, I recommend you not change your build (there are still other targets you can rape) unless feeding terribly (go defense items).

You will not need the sustain because of potions and you will just be zoning or killing them.

Just bough Akali about a week ago, she's great fun to play. Read your guide and it helped a lot. I have 2 questions though:
1. What do you think about Lich Bane? Akali doesn't use mana so the idea sounds silly, but I tried building it once in a bot game, and my aa damage was insane with my Q mark and the passive. The extra movement speed was handy too.
2. Why/when should one pick Akali over Diana? Could you compare them in a more detailed way? What are their pros and cons?
3

When you get to the point of contemplating to buy Lichbane, I'm guessing it's been over 40 minutes already. It works very well with Rabadons but shouldn't be bought as a second major item since you're going to need a GA.

Diana has been nerfed recently, I have not experienced the changes applied to her or know if she's still viable (I have not seen her picked). Her kit is still insanely strong though.

So what are your thoughts on Void Staff over Abyssal?

I've been building with that and doing some pretty stellar bursts. c:

Void > Abyssal if most of the enemy have 100+ MR, your team lacks magic damage (rendering the aura useless), or if you don't need the bonus resist.

Quick question, Im a bit confused at how 6.6 AD Runes + 3AD from masteries can give 10AD for the passive, im assuming that it rounds up but could someone clarify on that?
