so i just saw this akali in a game using a new build ive never seen before. she rushed gunbladle. and then built a nashors tooth and a black cleaver. she had a lot of burst but could also autoattack like a boss.

her build was:
-Merc treads
-Nashors tooth
-Black cleaver
-Rylais


any thoughts on viability?

Autoattacking just gets you killed as Akali. Why spend 4 seconds dealing damage that you could do in 2? You could spend that time in shroud waiting for CD again instead of getting focused and exploded.

Full Burst > Autoattack

She is mainly built for burst not autoattack dps. So i wouldnt bother with atk speed items. For the most dmg out of your burst you would focus on AP items.

Items i use
-Sorc boots
-Rylais
-lichbane
-death cap
-bvail

I agree; Akali's abilities are all pointed towards burst and run. She doesn't have the survivability to be as strong as an autoattacker.

Yeah, this would probably work, but in my experience not as well as the alternatives. The only situation I can think of I would use a build like this is if I was in a game, and suddenly noticed everyone else on my team was building AP, and the enemies were building magic resist, but no armor.
