[2.1a] Akali Guide
Best Build Guide for Akali
Item Build Description
Additional information on the items
U always start with Amplifing Tome.
Your first item should be Hextech Gunblade because of the Omnivamp for more sustain in the lane and of course for burst and slow the enemy. Some people go for Liandry's Torment first, because of the stacking damage from the passive and the extra damage for each attack. But i personally think its better to buy it after Hextech Gunblade because it synergyses very well with his slow.
My third item is Infinity Orb to get some magicpenetration, movementspeed and the extra burst if enemy only has 20% health and it synergyses well with Perfect Execution because the damage can be 3.5 times more damage as normal. Now if u cimbine this with the passive from infinity orb u make 3.85 times more damage, also the health isn´t that bad so u can survive longer in teamfights.
Now its situational what u buy... if u think u need an Stasis Enchant u can buy it. Its usually good against enemy assasins or an CC heavy team so u can dodge the most CC to continue dealing damage. Or u can buy Rabadon's Deathcap to deal more damage in little time its ur desition.
As last item i normally go for Guardian Angel to really survive teamfights if you got catched the armor is also nice and the AD is good for ur Five Point Strike because it scales a little bit better with AD. But sometimes it can be good to buy sth like Randuin's Omen or Adaptive Helm . If enemy has at least 4 AD champs buy Randuin and if enemy has much AP buy the helm.
Best Runes for Akali
electrocute against squishy teamcombo so u can shread them faster.
Triumph to get health if u killor help with an kill to survive an ignite or to stay longer in teamfights. Hunter Titan is good for the health and for tenacity, but u can also go for spiritwalker if u against enemys with much slow abillyties like Nasus, Leona, Xin Zhao etc.. Sweet thooth for more sustain in the lane and for the extra gold for each Honeyfruit.
the same like in the Runes before but with conqueror as keyrune. Conquerer is better against tanky champions bu also helps to shread consistant more damage against champions generally.

Akali Matchups & Counters
Detailed information on how to play matchups and counters
dodge his [aurelionsol:1] and go in with Shuriken Flip the only thing he can do now is ulting to get away.
its easy because he needs 1-2 item to make real damage. un can easyly deny him farm and poke him down anly watch out for his Playful / Trickster he can dodge everything for a few sek. Use ur 2nd if he ults u and u should survive this.
U can poke her down and kill her easyly. watch for her daggers and try to hit her immidiatly if she goes in so u have instand an advantage for the fight.
dodge her Light Binding and u will have an easy live
dodge his first and use ur 2nd when he uses his 2nd and u will be fine u can poke him down and normally kill him.
Its annoying to play against her but not impossible. Watch out for her Disintegrate because it makes AOE damage and try to go in with Shuriken Flip . But be carefull when shes lvl 5 because then she can make her combo with ult and stun and u will be dead because of her burst.
Be very carefull when she uses Charm because she can kill u with one combo if she hits u. also keep in mind that she will spam her Fox-fire or Orb Of Deception everytime when u try to farm minions. u can dodge her Charm with ur Shuriken Flip when is´t works u can trade very well with ur Twilight Shroud and Five Point Strike but go out before she can throw her Charm again (12 sek at lvl 1)
she will poke u down because of high range and will deny u farm. try to help ur team if u cant farm without getting poked hard and get some kills and she will maybe not get so strong how she would if u stay in lane
He will farm and poke u from a save distance and his damage is insane try to dodge his abilitys and farm save as well and he will not kill u with his ult cause u didnt get low in best chase. also try to help u team if u can and try to get ahead and it will be quite easyer.
she can outrange u and has very well sustain cause of the passive and u have to be very carefull when she reaches lvl 5 because the ultimate will destroy u. try to farm savely minions dont go in and rotate if u can to get some kills. But NEVER die against her because she will snowball very hard and u cant do anything against her. try to get an advantage an u should be fine.
he will poke u down with is windwall and his first and he will eskape with his dash quickly. try to hit him everytime he uses hir 1st to farm and use ur 2nd to dodge his ult but keep in mind ur 2nd has an 17 sek cooldown. punish him for every mistake and didnt make to much mistakes so he cant trade good.
he will poke u down from a save distance. be passive and try to dodge his abilitys with ur 3rd and the ult with ur 2nd but keep in mind a good Zed will ignite u before he uses his ult so he can see u and u will die buy stasis earlyer and use it if he ults u so he didnt get to much kills. Punish him when he wnánt to lasthit an minion with AA.
Tipps and tricks
1. Try to hit ur first with max range so u prop ur passive instant
2. U can dash over small walls with ur Shuriken Flip
3. try to use ur Assassin's Mark as often as u can because this does big damage
4. kill enemy carry with ur ultcombo so ur team can win the fight
5.play save until u get an advantage bacause than u can snowball hard and controll the game very easy
Dont be sad if the first 50 games doesnt work like u thougt... Akali is very hard to play i have more than 200 games with her and i think i can her pretty good but it will take time to master her you will learn everygame how to play her in which situation. Try to test the limits from akali and you will get better and a liitle tip from me to you... turn off the ingamechat if u learning her because 90% of the people will flame u.
