Akali Matchups Overview

Akali General information

Akali tips and tricks

Keep a constant eye on your energy levels and avoid trading unless you have a lot of energy to spare.

In team fights, look to assassinate the squishiest member of the enemies team. Play around and inside your Shroud to stay alive for longer.

A good time to fight the enemy is when they’ve used an ability on the minion wave. This will reduce their damage output and allow you to come out ahead of the trade.
