you're level 11, save the jungling until you're at least level 20, it's the sad truth. your team wont know how to respond to a jungler, and most people your level probably think you can use smite on champions. It's the sad reality but by jungling at level 11 you are bringing your team down and it will most likely be a 4v5

you need to get a leash ask your top and mid to come and just hit the wolves a few times then go to blue and hit it a until you ping them away (V to fall back from) then smite it when it gets to that 490mark (at level 1)

The reason why you are struggling is because Akali sucks at clearing jungle. She cannot hope to do it until she's at least level 6+ and even then she will struggle to clear jungle like others can. Even Diana can do that job much better and she too has a gap closer like Akali's. Don't get me wrong, she's an amazing ganker and very quick at it. If the enemy laner isn't paying attention for one second, he will most likely be caught in a flurry of Akali's bursts. However, you will be clearing jungle TOO slowly and any decent jungler will recognize this; thus they will come to counter jungle you and get first blood while you're doing red.

1. Flat AD Marks
2. Flat Armor Seals

4. One Flat AD Quint. Two Spellvamp Quints.
5. Your masteries are 21/9/0 . Picking up the flat AD and flat AP in the offense tree and taking the spell penetration mastery.

When you jungle, you start with machete but you rush hextech gunblade, and build her like any other akali. Late game, the machete can be sold or turned into a Spirit of the Ancient Golem or Spirt of the Spectral Wraith depending on what you need to counter the enemy team.

The runes and masteries will give you both passives at level 1, and the extra spellvamp really helps her health for her jungle clears. It especially helps because spellvamp applies to the damge done by your smite spell. You level Q>E>Q>W and you can gank at level four using your W as a slow and protection as you gank for those 1st few ganks. However, jungle akali should focus on farming her way to 6 as fast as possible because once she hits 6 her ganks are unstoppable.

Counter jungling does suck for akali because she isn't a great duelist pre-6 and she should just run from other junglers for the most part. Still, she can have a tremendous impact on the game once she hits 6 and then most other junglers will run from her.

She can work and very well, but she has her advantages and disadvantages. Her main advantage being that people don't think you are going jungle. Main disadvantage being that strong counter junglers can ****** her level growth which will put her behind.

Spellvamp applies to any damage dealt by anything other than a basic attack. It doesn't matter if the damage is physical, magic, or true damage.
