Ever since Akali came out I've been extremely intrigued by the champion. She's interesting, exciting, lethal, and a ton of fun. There's a lot of debate over the best way to build her, but I find my build and playstyle give Akali several key benefits:
Well written guide, i've been meaning to try Akali out and believe I may use this.
Although one thing i'm wondering about is leaving T2 boots till after rylais. Rylais is not a cheap item, and it seems to me like finishing the whole thing before getting your T2 boots is a bit odd. T2 boot upgrade is not very expensive and offers fantastic buffs, if survivability is an issue than why not just get belt first instead of finishing the item in one go?
Just something I was wondering, like I mentioned I have yet to play Akali so i'm not an expert when it comes to her.
Anyways good job all together.
love the guide and someone that can appreciate twilight for the runaround tool it is.
My first thing, do you think boots of swiftness is inferior to other boots? I personally love the extra run speed and mercury always seem to be pointless because even with 40% reduction, CC does too much damage too fast to me all the time.
also, how the hell do you get more items ><. I've killed a lot of minions, jungled well, gotten very fed and still have had only enough for tier 2 boots, rageblade and a rylais heh. Not that I really need much more but come on! heh.
Also, thank you for teaching people twilight a little. People always complain sometimes when I use it, never realizing it :
1) slows enemies
2) armor is nice in a 1v1 some times, I wasnt trying to avoid you but win you stupid TF
3) watching you enemies can be priceless (especially with speed 3 boots) because I generally run the opposite way they think I will when they're confused. Even if they notice where I go I'm usually far enough away to outrun them or make it to where they feel uncomfortable following still
Initiating...that I have to disagree with. If absolutely necessary you can try, but don't expect to be viable if not dead when your team finally realizes whats happening. I've specifically told teams I'm going to initiate only to see them running to a turret before the battle begins but after I shroud into all the enemies. People just don't feel safe with an akali starting things.
