How to play:
Akshan is a marksman that focuses on building items that give him a lot of attack speed and attack damage. Akshan is a very mobile and aggressive champion, he can use his mobility throughout the game to roam around the map and get advantages from other lanes. When you find an opportunity you should always look to attack and use his abilities to proc his passive, Dirty Fighting so you can get the shield to win trades. When you get to the mid and late game you can use Akshan’s high mobility and damage to swing around the map and increase your team’s odds of victory!
Akshan can also be played in the duo lane, make sure to check the alternative build at the top of the page! The build with Akshan duo lane is the same as mid lane and the playstyle is pretty much the same. Akshan can struggle in the duo lane since most of the other champions can out poke and outrange him and it’s hard for Akshan to dive in since there is so much crowd control to dodge.
(Passive) Dirty Fighting
Every three hits from attacks and abilities deal additional magic damage and Akshan gains a shield that absorbs damage. You should look to proc this as many times as you can especially during the laning phase. There is a bar underneath the mana bar that shows when your passive is back up again.
When auto-attacking, Akshan will fire a second shot that deals 50% less damage. Holding down the attack button will always fire the second shot. However, he can cancel this shot by moving and when he does he gains bonus movement speed that decays over a second.
It’s really important to know when to double shot and when to cancel it to gain movement speed. Most of the time you want movement speed if the enemy is trying to fight back, but if you feel safe you can deal a lot more damage with the double shot.
(Skill 1) Avengerang
Akshan throws a boomerang that deals physical damage, extending the range each time it hits an enemy. This ability is Akshan’s main poking and damage tool in the laning phase.
Try to line up the ability so Akshan can hit minions and the enemy champion so you can hit both parts of the boomerang’s damage. If you hit both parts of the boomerang you can follow that up with an auto-attack to proc your passive, Dirty Fighting.
If you hit a champion with Avengerang, Akshan will gain bonus movement speed decaying over a second. With this on top of the movement speed you get from Dirty Fighting, you can kite around enemies easily in team fights.
(Skill 2) Going Rogue
This ability has both a passive and an active to it. The passive is when enemies kill allied champions they become Scoundrels for a while. When Akshan takes down a Scoundrel he gains gold and revives the slain allies instantly. This is unbelievably strong, especially in the late game. You can turn the fight with one takedown and potentially revive your entire team!
The active allows Akshan to become camouflaged for just under 2 seconds while gaining bonus movement speed towards Scoundrels. The duration of being camouflaged is infinite while he is near terrain or in a brush.
You can use this to roam from the mid lane and gank either Baron Lane or Duo Lane to get an advantage elsewhere on the map. Make sure when you roam that you don’t lose any minions mid lane as you will start to fall behind on gold and experience.
(Skill 3) Heroic Swing
Akshan fires a hook to attach and swing around terrain, attacking the nearest enemy dealing physical damage per shot. This is Akshan’s main mobility ability, but be careful as it can put you in a dangerous position if not used correctly.
If Akshan collides with an enemy champion or terrain, he will jump off the rope. If you want to avoid being put in awkward situations or colliding with the terrain, you can re-cast the ability and Akshan will manually jump off.
If Akshan gets a champion takedown whilst Heroic Swing is on cooldown, it will refresh the ability’s cooldown. Most of the time you want to use this ability at the start of a teamfight to reposition yourself to get an advantage and you can potentially use it multiple times during a fight.
Akshan locks onto an enemy champion, charging 5 shots over a few seconds. This ultimate has long-range and does a lot of damage however it can be blocked by minions, champions and even towers so you need to make sure you position yourself correctly.
You can move whilst using Comeuppance and even use Heroic Swing to reposition to guarantee you land the ultimate.
Akshan can also recast the ultimate early if needed. This will deal less damage but it means you will get some quick damage off to try and secure the kill.
