He currently isn’t meta due to mage items being reworked so you will have chances to play him and learn him. He isn’t banned unless you’re a one trick for him. So if you run into same people you beat, they will ban him. Other than that, you’re fine.

Additional information on the items

The current items haven’t been added but you need collector and dynamism boots or the AD armor pen boots with this build. Crit is your friend especially with your main rune is kraken slayer. BT and Botrk is used for lifesteal. Stromrazor for the attack speed. Essence reaver is used for mana and additional crit damage. Lord Dominik’s regards was really useful until they took it out as you get additional armor pen.

You need to throw his bommerang out and proc his passive. Once you hit the enemy champ, you hold down auto cuz it will give you a shield and proc kraken as well. You can swing towards them to proc kraken slayer as well for true damage.

The only thing you have to worry about is her ult and her stun. You out damaged her early and late game especially if you don’t give shutdowns. Again the only time she’ll beat you if you give her shutdowns or her jungle ganks you nonstop.

Akshan

Mid Akshan only

Akshan is best in mid lane only. He doesn’t have viability in solo lane or duo lane. Granted you can play him in solo lane but you will have a hard time due to the tanks. Akshan takes time to master. You will not be good your first game if you try him. His swing takes skill cuz you have time it perfectly cuz if you don’t , you will lose your lane. Certain matchups will easy or hard. Take the time to learn his [heroic swing] angles. You can recast it and go backwards with enough practice. I didn’t get all matchups done but once I do get them done I’ll updated the guide. Now since the website doesn’t have current items, I’ll post pictures of what I believe is a good build for akshan. You can swap out some of the items with other ones in different situations. Like if they have 2-3 tanks you can swap out mortal reminder for black cleaver. If they have a lot of ap champs , swap out mortal reminder for wits ends or force of nature. Force of nature not only gives you magic resist but also hp.  The single rune you will use is kraken slayer. The sub ones are precision and resolve. You can swap out legend bloodline for legend tenacity. You don’t have to worry about attack speed. Until they add press the attack kraken is your best rune. Your true damage will make fights go in your favor. Again you will need time to master akshan. But hopefully this guide will help you understand how to play him somewhat.

Akshan

Solo Lane akshan

Now in the off chance, you decide to play AkshanAkshan in solo lane. Here’s the runes, same as mid lane. For the build you’re gonna want Black CleaverBlack Cleaver first item because you’re gonna be facing tank champs instead of squishy ones. The build can be the same but black cleaver is first. The mid build can be used in solo lane if you’re facing adc champs like kaisa, vayne, ezreal and tristana.
