Actually, if you attack twice, it's a [1-((1-.25)^2)]% (or 43.75%) chance of slowing. Simple probability here! :-P

IMO, isn't a long sword better as your first item instead of amp tome? The spell vamp seems more useful earlier, especially AP. You already do enough damage early game without AP and the spell vamp will let you stay in the lane longer, correct?

wrong..end result with this build is you get 3500 hp as a heavy dps/burst champion. good luck finding a stronger more viable champion with this build. akali has natural dmg attributes that surpasses any other champion trying to build survivability gear over dmg gear.

If you need Health, you can invest on other items that gives you a lot of health for a cheap price.

IMHO, Phage or even Frozen Mallet is more usefull for tanks.

After note: If the guide is about "burst", it's strange to find something about "survivability" specially when it includes "I'm just not a fan of flash, and you shouldn't get yourself into trouble in which you need it." Because if that's true, they why do you need item for survival?

Just my 2 cents.

you sound like someone that sits in a classroom all day and knows jack **** about life. why dont you try the build and figure out what the hell the kid is talking about before coming up with pointless ideas to waste my time reading?

Hey, this guy knows a lot for a junior member.

Unless you're one of the best players of LoL your winrate will be around 50%, because matchmaking tries to set you up against players of similar skill. It's not a good indicator of how good you are.

The author should come back and update. Haunting Guise doesn't give spell vamp anymore.
Oh, and I'd agree with a lot of the people in this thread who are saying to build burst over things like HP and slow. That stuff costs money, yo.

Just used this build in a game and it was a huge success. Was doing great burst damage and went either 11-4 or 12-4 not sure.

yea hybrid Akali is still the best IMO i use my own personal build and get at least 20 kills a game in fact my previous game i went 41-4 so yea

AP Akali is not as good for EXPERIENCED Akali players as Hybrid Akali

However if your a noob go for AP it will help you learn to play...hopefully

I find that mpen boots are always better than ms 3 boots, you don't need the speed to chase once you get rylai's.I also find that lich bane before zhonyas is better.

I find using zeal gives you enough move speed to chase/run and it gives the extra attack speed, which is a nice bonus.
