Hey fourm, just bought akali and really enjoy her and dat burst. But my question is what is the combo for most damage? In my normal build i get a lich bane, so dont forget about the AA :P thanks and have a good day

I usually start with magic pen boots. work towards a hextech revolver if I dont need the health. If i need health i start with Haunting guise(little bit of health with more magic pen helps a lot if youre falling behind.) After that go Crystal scepter>Gunblade> abyssal scepter> Liandrys torment> then rabadons. If youre able to pull enough gold before needing to "b" AFTER you have bought crystal scepter get rabadons then.

This is how you should primarily combo with her kit.

Use your Q only to harass and autoattack to farm. Those that are ranged champs will seek to deny you farm. You must do everything in your power to dodge those pokes/harasses and poke back with your Q. You can use your W to sort of "scare" the opposing laner away so you can get those last hits or to seek to poke the enemy with a Q/AA combo.

Now, once you turn level 6, it's still not smart just to ult in immediately. Use your Q on the enemy champion. The mark should be on their head. About 1 second before your Q comes back from CD and if you have good positioning, ult in so that you can use that mark on the enemy for AA extra damage, and Q immediately right after ulting in. Then spam Akali skills for a penta. 1v1 lane fights, I would save W for when you are in HUGE trouble and nothing else. That W can save you from near-death ganks using it to juke people out.

My guide
Skill max R>Q>W>E
Start with your Q then R in after the Q hit for secondary damage E for more damage and then rinse and repeat
Items if you dont have a custom akali rune page so that you can immediatly proc her 2 passives Buy long sword and 2 pots so you get that 6% spell vamp asap........

Core items Hex. Revolver>Sorc> Rylais> Death cap> Will of ancients (gunblade is very overrated)> personal choices i guess

Should max E over W.

Using Akali's E in your rotation wastes energy... Use it if you need last little bit of damage to just finish them. But E shouldnt be used in a starting combo. Best to save your energy for Q.

Using your E on a target with Q on them activates the mark and gives all the benefits of bonus damage and energy refund.

If we're just talking about combo. What I generally do is :
Qpoke -> ult-> either E or AA, depending which does the best dmg -> Q -> AA

When youneed to disengage, W.
And as a sidenote : you can zone with W. lay it down, walk in it, most smart people will avoid it. if they don't Q->AA them, stealth. Rinse and repeat. Some people will just face you in it vecause they knwo they can win a straight battle. You need a small lead.
