Akshan counter tips

General advice on how to play against Akshan
These champs are weak against Akshan at most phases of the game. They’re listed based on their win rate against Akshan.
Laning Against Akshan

Laning Against Akshan

Try and keep the minion wave closer to your side of the map early. Doing so will make his all-in less effective.

Post 6, try to interrupt or somehow force Akshan to top his Ultimate. This will increase your survivability and it will be put on a short cooldown.

Keep in mind that early armor will be very beneficial in this matchup. Akshan is an AD champion, so picking up early armor will protect you from some of his damage.

Strategy VS Akshan

Strategy VS Akshan

Don’t chase Akshan in the jungle during the mid-game. He could be leading your team into danger or an ambush.

Try and look for fights when Akshan isn’t there. That way he will be unable to benefit from his Going RogueW.

Playing around Akshan’s Ultimate will be very beneficial during the mid-game. Without it, he will be unable to maximize his damage output.

Akshan Power Spikes

Akshan Power Spikes

Akshan’s first power spike is when he unlocks all 3 basic abilities. Although, his early game damage is pretty good at level 1 and 2.

When he unlocks his Ultimate at level 6, his kill pressure intensifies. Keep this in mind and avoid staying in lane when low.

After Akshan’s first back, he should’ve picked up a component item for his Mythic. Unless you’ve matched him, be careful as he will win trades and all-ins.
