Like others mentioned oracles/vision ward + a jungler makes a fairly easy gank. As far as 1v1 laning, Akali definately has the advantage at level 2-3 and on. Either get stealth detection and ask for a gank or play passively away from bubble and last hit (keep life high at level 6 and be ready to gold card and run).

Ever see an Akali with more then 1 deathcap? there goes 5000hp in one attack.

annddddd then they die.


First off, you have a stun, she doesn't.
Your ranged, she's melee, kite her.
She only has3 charges on her ulti.
For the love of god, why does she have an infinity edge?o.o

No, that would be ******ed; Deathcaps do not stack passives.

----
I think that DPS Akali is really not the way to go since she has such a low cd on Q(max it and it can be spammed as fast/faster than vlad's Q if autoattack is used to replenish 50 energy).

AP = death to every squishy.

Also: OP(who posted this thread a few months ago...) never learned to place a ward in Akali's "escape bubble."

Btw, this thread was revived NOT by a comrade, but by a counter-revolutionary opportunist.

remember now, they nerfed shen's dagger and here's this energy nuke champ that can ult 3 times in a row and relentlessly pursue any target, cloak if others are present, and flash away (since we all know every akali has flash) if overextended. lifesteal? check. spell vamp? check. increased damage with bonus damage? check.

now, i know MANY people whine about this entire character in general as op. maybe that's true, but there's one thing that really makes her character cheap. i think the problem here is that she can ult 3 times! the problem with this is that skilled players that use snares or other cc cannot possibly stop akali's approach. if she REALLY wants to kill you, you're dead. i think the concept of her character is fine, but the fact that she can keep reusing that ult to close the distance and chase is bs.

the solution?

riot needs to change that ult to be useable one time with increased damage, or reduce the existing version's damage significantly and raise the cd, since her early, mid, and late game presence are just plain ridiculous.

oh, and for the love of god, buff shen. what were you guys thinking?
