Tips To Consider When Playing Against Akali

  • At level 6, try to prevent Akali’s use of Mark of the Assassin, as she can proc it twice using her dashes.
  • Akali still takes hits by (area of effect) AOE abilities while inside her shroud.
  • Choosing a champion with stealth reveal abilities such as Lee Sin makes things much harder for Akali as she is not able to use her shroud as freely.
  • For other champs, try to carry a reveal ward against her so that she can’t use her shroud defensively. Or, B=buy and upgrade the oracles lens, it will negate the stealth she gains from her shroud.
  • Akali excels at level 6, punish her in the lane as much as you can before she can get her ultimate.
