I won't be able to use 2 AP quints until L30, unless I replace my AD quint with some of my marks or whatever. I assume they have to be T3 quints so we're talking a few thousand IP? That's what I was hoping to avoid.

Anyways, Akali does lane like a beast. It's super easy to last-hit with her; easier than any other champ I've played TBH. She makes a great 1v2 laner too because of her shroud. There's no reason to rush jungling with her just yet, I was just curious.

At this point, I'd sooner buy runes to jungle with Rammus. He's much MUCH suckier in the lane.

Yeah, it does cost quite a bit, but then again besides the AD quint all my other runes mach my standard mage set, so it's worth it ^^

I'm sure it can be done without spending 5k IP on runes just for her, but I'm not sure if it's viable. By that I mean, does she jungle fast enough to make it worth while.
Ive heard that it can be viable, though I've never seen it personally. I HAVE seen a jungle Poppy, and she was insane! She rocks for countering other junglers. There are only a handful of characters that can viably jungle without 30 levels worth of masteries and runes though. WW, Udyr, and Olaf are the ones that primarily come to mind, though you could probably do it with Nunu, Xin, and Fiddle too. You need at LEAST the 9 or 10 points in utility to get the exp boost and the buff duration boost masteries. I cant imagine viably jungling without it. I would HIGHLY recommend avoiding jungling with a tank until 30.

What I would recommend is ALWAYS trying a jungle build out in a practice game with bots 1st. Every viable jungler can clear out the jungle without returning to base, be level 4 with double buffs and ready to gank without being terribly behind in levels.
