I just tried out flash/ignite instead of my usual flash/heal, and it did wonders. first blood and i didnt even die that much, though probably since I played more defensively because i knew i didnt have heal.
not really on topic but how far is flash supposed to take you at most?
I just bought Akali, since I haven't seen many people playing her recently, and had no idea where to start. I agree with getting Rylia first, then sheen, from my little experience. I've been playing really defensively as I learn her, but the slow and extra health really helps out. Also, once you do get that sheen you have the survivability to actually stick around and get a kill or two.
I've actually been playing around with the order I buy the items in (had been following your item order pretty religiously before that), and have started buying Sheen before Rylai's. It's a lot cheaper and helps a lot with the burst.
Also, after experimenting with summoner abilities, I've really come to appreciate Ghost and Flash. It hurts your killing ability a little bit early game, but your escapability just goes up so much throughout all phases of the game, I think it's worth the tradeoff.
I actually really liked your guide. I'm usually pretty good with Akali and have played her various ways. We just played a game together and our team was doing horrible, you felt the need to point out my errors which I was quite aware of.(probably my worst game yet, it helps to be in the right mind state) I was not the only one making mistakes however. I realize it can be frustrating when team mates decide to slack off in ranked matches but **** happens, you obviously enjoy picking on others. Thumbs down for your disrespect in game and thumbs up for some good ideas in your guide.
to play akali u gotta be a BEAST, early game prior to lvl 6 u can almost burst people to death in 2 hits. they will not wanna keep near you. anyways u build towards AP akali, which is also good, but u gotta build her depending on the players you are gonna feed off of. i personally dont have any problems being in solo lane. or even takin mid. even with ash againts me, the only one its a bit difficult is Karthus. but other than that akali isnt weak prior to 6,
my games usually go 15-25 kills a game and about 5-15 deaths. because by mid game i just wanna kill and dont care about dying
