Akali and Katarina arn't really the same hero, even though they are manaless.

Akali is a bulldog AP carry who can chase down one hero at a time and anihilate them, fast.

Katarina is the complement to an AOE disable (Annie, Amumu or Galio) and good for team destroying. She may require a Banshee Veil after her gunblade to avoid getting shut down.

Right now Akali does her job slightly better.

Shes doesnt have any hard CC, but is GREAT for mopping up the enemy team after A fight has been initiated. Her passive granting her CDR reduction after a kill or assist means you can easily run down the rest of the enemy team who runs as well.

Essentially you want to use her shunpo as an AP nuke every 2 seconds or so, and ult when you're surrounded by a few squishies to cut them down with knives. Early game she has great harass with knife toss and shunpo.

Protip: Don't first pick her in ranked games unless you want 6 CCs on the other team.
