Active: Akali throws her kama at the targeted enemy, dealing magic damage and marking it for 6 seconds. If Akali uses a basic attack on a marked enemy, the mark will detonate to deal additional magic damage and return energy to Akali.
If ranked, Akali will start with 1 charge, and will respawn with 3 charges of Essence of Shadow.
The closer Akali is to her target, the greater the strike through distance. At point blank range Akali will be placed 200 units behind her target, while shadow dancing at maximum range will only result in a 100 unit strike through. Additionally, if Akali's target is affected by Mark of the Assassin, the strike through distance will be halved (50 at maximum range, 100 at point blank range).
