Akali Build

The way to build Akalia Wild Rift is to focus on items that deal magic damage. The Hextech gun sword gives Akali physical damage and strong magic from the active passive that will help Akali speed up the pursuit of the target. The next equipment for Akali Wild Rift drains health and reduces cooldown. Helps Akali shock damage fast.

Akali ability order

skill order cho Akali Wild Rift

Akali Wild Rift's main damage skill is the Five-Pointed Flying Knife, so it's necessary to raise Max first. Next, Akali needs to raise the Dart to show Akali's terrifying flexibility. The ultimate move is only needed to raise it, it is an important piece in the shock damage combo, the effective control effect of Akali Wild Rift.

Akali abilities

Dấu Ấn Sát Thủ ASSASSIN'S MARK

Create a circle of energy after using a damaging skill. Stepping through the circle will enhance the next basic attack, increase the range and deal extra damage.

The important point of this passive is that it increases the movement speed. That means Akali can actively attack or retreat depending on the situation.

For me, in the first attack, if I hit and deal a large amount of damage, it will be the condition for me to continue attacking. And of course, I have to use a basic attack first, to get the passive and take advantage of the enhanced damage. In case the attack misses the target, of course I will choose to retreat.

Phi Đao Năm Cánh FIVE POINT STRIKE

This skill deals wide area damage. I will try to make the enemy position at the maximum range of the skill to slow them down. Being slowed is very important in Akali’s attack strategy. It gives Akali more time to chase or escape.

Bom Khói TWILIGHT SHROUD

Create a smoke bomb to disguise and avoid damage. In the smoke bomb, Akali will gain movement speed and restore 100 energy. No need to say much, I will use this skill right after dashing to the target.

On the one hand, to avoid damage back. On the other hand, to restore energy, preparing for the next attack. However, this skill has a long cooldown, so only use it when necessary.

Shuriken Flip Shuriken Flip

Jump back and throw a shuriken. Mark the enemy champion, activate to dash to the target. This is the skill I like the most when playing Akali. It can be used to dodge skills and then deal damage back. It can also be used to dash through terrain.

This is also the most proactive skill of Akali. It allows Akali to decide whether to continue attacking or not. Akali has 3 seconds to decide whether to dash to the target or not. For me, I will dash if I have enough skills and enough damage to kill the target.

The second condition is the position of the enemy. If the target is in an area that is advantageous for Akali, I will definitely dash. But if the enemy is standing under the turret with full health, dashing is not a wise choice.

Sát Chiêu Hoàn Hảo PERFECT EXECUTION

Allow Akali to dash twice. The second dash deals more damage. And even more if the enemy is below 35% health. The great thing about this skill is that it deals wide area damage.

It deals damage to all enemies in the dash path. The key is to avoid being controlled when dashing or in other words, to avoid being targeted. Surprise is the factor of success for this skill.

How to play Akali

Passive is the main source of Akali's damage, only when activated will you be considered to know how to play Akali Wild Rift.

Always use Phi Đao Năm Cánh  at max attack range to instantly activate the passive.

Throwing darts not only has a purpose of marking attacks to approach the enemy, but also to extend the distance. Even jumping through walls.

In the early stages Akali is quite strong so you can trade damage actively.
