Countering

  •  Akali is most effective when making quick kills. The longer she has to stick around in a fight the more susceptible she is of taking a heavy amount of damage.
  • She isn't as effective against durable opponents because of her low base health and that she is a champion that has to burst a target down quickly.
  • Do not underestimate  Mark of the Assassin's secondary damage, as it is where most of her damage comes from. Her ultimate is just a tool that helps her detonate such marks.
  • When  Akali uses  Twilight Shroud, she gains much survivability. However, having a  Vision Ward will make her more vulnerable and easier to take down. If you have extra gold laying around, investing in a Greater Vision Totem may give you an edge. In such situation, you can reveal her underneath her shroud, making her think twice about engaging,
  • After  Akali's burst, she has to wait for her cooldowns in order to deal her burst damage again, which takes a while, even with cooldown runes and masteries. When fighting against her, use this time to take her down, if ever you survive her initial burst.
  • When you are chasing her, make sure you are aware of the amount of HP you have, due to the fact that she can nuke quite easily and score another kill on you.
  • Against an  Akali, play more offensively until she reaches level 6; try to deny her early game, as she usually has the advantage once she gets her  Shadow Dance.
    •  Akali has very few offensive items early game. Zone her out so she can not farm, which will further delay her from getting her  Shadow Dance. Once she does hit 6 try to bait her into using her ability on you if you can take it, as she is less effective the less charges she has.
  •  Twilight Shroud will stealth her only if she remains in the AoE, Meaning that she will be out of stealth when she is out of the AoE or attacking. Try to move out of the AoE as fast as possible to prevent her from bursting you while in stealth, or pick up a Vision Ward if she seems to be over using it.
  • Take great care when chasing  Akali, as her  Shadow Dance and her  Twilight Shroud will make her a very effective juker and escape artist. Stun or silence her if she is being over-aggressive.
  • Champions with AoE abilities or reveals (such as  Lee Sin) can be an extremely effective counter.
  • Building The Lightbringer allows ADCs to put more damage onto  Akali, as well as countering her  Twilight Shroud.
  • Hitting  Akali with hard CC makes her extremely vulnerable.
  • Good  Akali players can use  Shadow Dance to jump out of a fight if there are nearby minions or neutral monsters.
