Sheen is required as your first built item.

My typical build:

Amp Tome + Hp Pot
I b when I have enough for Soulstealer and Boots 1 OR a Doran's Blade
Come back, depending on how much I gold I got, i'll buy Sorc boots + start building Rylai's or Deathcap depending on how the game is going.
Finish Rylais/Deathcap
Lich Bane (game never usually makes it this far)
For survivability I buy a Banshees or Sunfire Cape as my final item

I'm sure you know the typical combo, Q them and R in, just make sure you get the auto attack off. I see so many akali's Q and R in and instantly press E and they miss the auto attack.

Dont listen to them all.
If your good enough or think you can try this I went my first game as her and you can check my match history right now.
start with broadsword
build into sword of the occult
mejais
mercury treads
hextech gunblade
rylais

then get wards or something u think is good for a last item
The dmg output is ridiculous once you get your stacks up.

Doran's blade (to start)
Rylai's - *Core item*
Gunblade - *Core item*
Boots of Mobility - My personal preference, other good options are Sorc Shoes and Merc Treads. Ionian boots could be good as well but I haven't tried them on her.

If you are dying a lot, after completing your core items (boots, rylais, gunblade) get a guardian angel.

If you don't feel like you need added defense, grab a lichbane and deathcap, or if you prefer a more AD heavy build grab triforce and ghostblade instead.

I generally don't love snowball items like mejai's on Akali. They are only good situationally, and it is much better to just go straight for rylais first.

Anyone who doesn't have Sheen as their first item isn't playing Akali right.

my typical build that works most of the time
long sword and 1 hp pot
sword of occult
boots
sheen
giants belt
hextech revolver
rylais\ rage blade
lynch bane
hextech gunblade

alternatively, you can skip occult and get majais for larger bursts. i tend to favor occult because i personally like the extra spell vamp for some survivability and it helps me farm when im using my E.
