I think that akali is one of the best champions in the game, but takes a great amount of skill to initiate fights and survive through the whole battle. Akali is one of the only champions that has the ability to fight multiple enemies at the same time, while taking little to no damage from any of them. Item builds can differ, but hexatech is a must.

I don't personally sit around auto attacking much either and only last hit for the most part early. So my auto attacks are limited also. Most of your damage out put period is physical. So you get more from Armour pen then Magic pen. Also Armour pen helps against towers and once you have Rageblade and another damage item you do good damage against towers. So why not beef up your damage in a more productive way.
Autoattack and E do physical damage. That's it.

You're seeing high % of physical damage from farming mobs. 90% of Akali's damage to other champs is magical.

She's extremely fun to play but she gets shut down easily by good teams. She also depends on having a good team (especially good tanks) around her.

Isn't that with any carry though? (Unless they build tanky)

I personally like my runes as such-

Red
2 flat attack damage
1 scaling damage ( only need 2 damage- this is the best combination via red)
6 Spell pen
Yellow
9 dodge
Blue
9 Scaling ap
Quint
2 Flat Ap
1 Scaling ( i find this offers a good balance for quints. I beleive akali benefits most from AP, MS or flat health quints)

Masteries 10/19/1
Summoner Spells ghost/ignite

Starting with dorans blade+potion

I find this offers a large starting burst with a little bit of survivability, allowing for easy level 1-3 kills. At level 3 you have 27 Ap with the ignite mastery. this also allows for significant regen via spell vamp and the negligible dorans. I find i can easily farm till level 7-8 without having to go back once.

from here you must judge which first item you benefit most from. I beleive in few core builds.
Rageblade, lichbane,zhonyas, cap, rylais, soulstealer, gunblade, veil, GA are all great picks.
personally i like Dorans>boots(2 or 3)>lichbane> gunblade>rylais>cap

Made some changes on the item list accounting for Zhonya item split and removing Haunting Guise as it has not been a really viable option for months now.

I have not updated values on runes as it seems Riot is continuing to play with how they want them.

Unfortunately I haven't played Akali much in a couple of months so there could be some major errors that I do not know about. I have been forced to tank a lot in the last few months so my Akali skills would probably be abysmal right now.
