Playing As AkaliSquare Akali
  • Akali excels at killing weaker characters. Let your team initiate and then strike at the people in the back.
  • Find the balance between storing Shadow Dance Essence of Shadows, and using Shadow Dance Shadow Dance before having max charges.
Playing Against AkaliSquare Akali
  • Akali can still be hit by area of effect spells while invisible inside Twilight Shroud Twilight Shroud.
  • Akali greatly benefits from both The Dark Seal The Dark Seal and Mejai's Soulstealer Mejai's Soulstealer. Watch which items she gets and prioritize her accordingly.
  • Return to base if your Health is low and Akali has multiple charges of her Shadow Dance ultimate.
  • Akali's Shadow Dance ultimate allows her to strike through and deal damage to enemies. Her Crescent Slash deals crazy damage when built right. When at the nexus and the team crowds, be watchful of Akali, she can Shadow Dance ultimate and Crescent Slash. Depending on health and proximity to the Crescent Slash, the entire team can be wiped out.
  • Akali's passive is used on her auto attacks. The first attack will give Akali back a percentage of her health. The second strike deals increased damage. If she's low health and has her Twilight Shroud, be careful because she will auto attack to gain health and, if she has it, summoner heal and turn the tables on your engagement.


Ability Usage
  • Her bread and butter combo involves proccing Mark of the Assassin Q twice in quick succession. Akali's Mark of the Assassin Q mark lasts 6 seconds, and its cooldown at 0% reduction is lower than 6 seconds at all ranks except the first, when it is 6 seconds exactly. This combo comes into effect once you get your ultimate at level 6, and consists of Mark of the Assassin Q - [wait for Mark of the Assassin Q cooldown] - Shadow Dance R - AA - Mark of the Assassin Q - AA. You can then add any Crescent Slash Es or additional Shadow Dance Rs as you want, as well as more Mark of the Assassin Qs if the fight lasts long enough for the cooldown.
  • Akali's Twilight Shroud W is a very versatile ability. After the rework, there are 4 important things to note: First, Control Wards Control Wards do not reveal you in your Twilight Shroud shroud, nor will anything other than a turret or an ability/effect that specifically says it reveals stealth. You will have a shimmer similar to Sweeping Lens Sweeping Lens / Oracle Alteration Oracle Alteration (except not red) when taking damage while invisible. [NOTE: There is currently a bug on the stealth where many hard crowd control abilities will actually reveal her and make her targetable] Second, the movement speed from shroud is now on at all times while you're in the shroud. Third, it is no longer placeable. This means that some previous advanced tactics, such as placing the center of the shroud in a wall to make the shroud invisible to enemies, are no longer possible. You can still do the aforementioned tactic using brush, however. Fourth, her shroud now has a small blink on cast. This is useful for gap closing, dodging abilities, and juking. But a very unknown mechanic on it, because it was never listed although it is confirmed intended, is that you can actually use her blink to negate displacements, such as knockups and knockbacks. This is shown here. Look at how Lee Sin's Lee Sin's Dragon's Rage Dragon's Rage is negated. In order to negate the displacements, you must cast her W at about the same time as the displacement; it just has to finish the cast time after the displace begins. Akali will be moved to the center of her shroud (not to where you targeted to blink to).
  • You can fake blinking over a wall with Akali's Twilight Shroud W by running up to a wall and then targeting somewhere not over the wall. Enemies will likely expect you to have gone over the wall and will use their own abilities or flash to cross the wall, allowing you to get away safely.
  • Akali's Twilight Shroud W will allow you to Teleport Teleport and be invisible, but it will reveal you for a moment after casting it. Keep in mind that this will put your Twilight Shroud W on cooldown, meaning you won't have access to it when you arrive, which is especially important to be aware of if you are joining a teamfight. Make sure to weigh the pros and cons of being able to immediately Teleport Teleport at the cost of your Twilight Shroud shroud against the value of having it for the teamfight at the cost of having to back away from danger first.
  • Akali's Crescent Slash E is a point-blank area of effect ability with good damage and a relatively low cooldown. It is especially useful for wave-clearing: Crescent Slash E's cooldown is reduced 60% if it kills a unit, so make sure to utilise this when trying to clear a large wave.
Rune Usage
  • Electrocute Electrocute adds a significant amount of damage to Akali's burst, and increases her kill pressure by a considerable amount.
  • Kleptomancy Kleptomancy is another option for Akali, allowing her to more consistently proc the second part of Mark of the Assassin Mark of the Assassin with the added range, allowing her to reach her power spikes faster with the additional gold, and making her lane phase safer with the consumables the keystone provides.
Item Usage

Akali's passive is used on her auto attacks. The first attack will give Akali back a percentage of her health. The second strike deals increased damage.
