Akshan Matchups Overview
Akshan General information
Refrain from using your E unless you really have to. During the laning phase, you’re quite vulnerable to an all-in if you’re caught out of position without it.
Auto-attack before using your Q as your Q applies stacks that allow you to get your Passive procs with ease.
To avoid getting your Ultimate cancelled, try and use it when the enemy wastes CC tools, or whenever you’re not going to get it interrupted.
Every combo you need to master the champion!
