How to play:
Akali is an AP assassin that is primarily played in the Mid Lane. She’s a weak champion and can struggle against ranged enemies before hitting level 5. Once she reaches level 5, she has access to Perfect Execution which is her main source of damage, this is when you can start to utilize her aggressive play style and try to get an early advantage by either trying to get a solo kill in the Baron lane or group early with your team around objectives and focus on the squishy targets in the backline.
Akali can also be played in the Baron Lane, make sure to check the alternative build at the top of the page! The build with Akali Baron lane is the same as mid lane, there is not much else that is different in terms of playstyles, build etc. The only thing to keep in mind is matchups. There are a lot of top lane champions that are good duelists that can punish you more in the early game so keep that in mind.
(Passive) Assassin’s Mark
When you hit one of Akali’s active abilities (Five Point Strike, Shuriken Flip or Perfect Execution) on a champion, it reveals a ring for 4 seconds. Crossing the ring grants Akali bonus attack range, damage and movement speed when walking towards the ring.
The best way to utilize this passive is when you hit a champion with an ability, you walk out of the circle (normally backwards) until you are out of the ring to proc the passive and then walk towards the champion to auto-attack. You will know when you have got the passive-active when the ring disappears and Akali starts spinning her dagger.
(Skill 1) Five Point Strike
Akali throws kunais, dealing magic damage. Enemies struck at the maximum range are slowed. Five Point Strike has a very low cooldown, meaning you can spam the ability a lot to last hit minions, harass enemies, and activate your passive with. Practice hitting enemies at maximum range with Five Point Mark, as if you do, you can instantly proc your passive as you will be outside the circle range.
An important thing to note is that you can activate this ability all around Akali even if it’s behind her, and most of the time it’s best to manually aim the ability instead of just tapping it so you can see the range and utilize your passive.
(Skill 2) Twilight Shroud
Creates a smoke cloud that expands over time and restores energy. Akali is invisible and gains movement speed inside the shroud. Twilight Shroud is one of the main abilities of Akali and it is what allows her to dodge and move around during team fights with ease, not being able to die.
The best time to use the ability is when you are running low on energy or you are about to get hit by heavy crowd control. When invisible, this is where you can use your Five Point Mark on the enemy champions and easily go out of the ring and back in again procing Assassin’s Mark without being seen.
(Skill 3) Shuriken Flip
Akali flips backwards and throws a shuriken, dealing damage and marking the target. If you press the ability again when the shuriken hits, you dash to the marked target dealing damage. It’s really important to use this ability at the right time because if you don’t hit a target with your shuriken, you will be too far away to get back into the fight. If you are not confident enough about hitting a target with your shuriken, you can cast the ability backwards. This means that Akali will flip towards the enemy and you can use your Five Point Strike or Perfect Execution to engage on the enemy.
Shuriken Flip is a great way to proc your passive Assassin’s Mark. When you hit an enemy champion, you will already be outside the circle so you will be able to dash in and do extra damage. But be careful when using your second part of Shuriken Flip, because you might travel into a dangerous area and you can die very quickly.
(Ultimate) Perfect Execution
A two-part dash ability. The first cast dashes through an enemy champion dealing damage. You can only use the first part of the ability by targeting an enemy champion. When you use the ability on an enemy champion, you will end up behind the champion so just keep that in mind.
The second part of the ability dashes in a target direction, dealing damage. The damage is increased based on the target’s missing health so it’s a great way to secure a kill on an enemy champion. You can use the second cast anywhere, so even if you need to escape a scary situation where you might die.
