Akali, the Fist of Shadow


Akali is a hybrid magic damage mobile assassin with a ninja style gameplay.  Her kit is one of the most offensively deadly in the league.  High burst damage and high sustain combined with mobility makes her a formidable opponent. Skilled Players can use her Twilight Shroud to escape or engage tight situations and turn them in her favor.  Akali can be nearly impossible to escape from and multi kills are no stranger to her score sheet.  When left alone she can snowball a game out of control. 

To reach her potential Akali needs to farm to level 6 as soon as possible and will usually build a Hextech Revolver quickly. At such time she can feed herself as she can 1v1 or 1v2 many opponents.  Preventing her from reaching these goals is the best way to stop Akali from taking control of the game.  During the early game harass Akali immediately after she uses her Q, Mark of the Assassin to farm a minion.  This prevents much of the damage any champion would take when exchanging with Akali and will usually cause her to back off and wait for a reset.  Vision granting abilities or consumables such as Vision Wards or Oracles Elixir will remove the advantage Akali gains when using her W, Twilight Shroud. Getting early magic resist through runes, masteries and early buys is recommended.

- Akali's base damage is one of the highest in the game due to the bonus magic damage from her passive Twin Disciplines.


- Her passive also grants large amounts of spell vamp providing Akali with very high sustain.


- Upon reaching level 6, Akali becomes very mobile with the help of her ultimate, Shadow Dance. This allows her to shut down squishy champions quickly and effectively, closing large gaps and stopping enemies trying to escape.


- Akali is an energy based champion and is not bound by mana constraints.  This allows Akali to continue spamming abilities long after her mana based counterparts are depleted.

- When picked first Akali can be countered in lane.


- Using Vision Wards and other vision granting abilities removes the advantage she gains from her stealth.


- Akali has relatively no crowd control (CC), as the only ability her kit providing any CC is a slow to enemies standing in her Twilight Shroud.  Stunning and disabling Akali is the best way to prevent her from escaping or chasing down squishes.


- Akali is very reliant on farm and kills as snowballing a game early is part of her play style. Delaying level 6 and preventing farm will keep Akali in check.
