Recently Iv been jungling more. My main role is still ADC and it is my best, but it DOES get boring after non-stop, match after match of Varus, Ez, Tristana, Vayne and Graves. So when I dont wanna go bot, i go jungle. Jungle is my 2nd best with Support rounding out on my 3rd.
I have been experimenting with some unorthodox Junglers recently and have found Akali to be my new favorite. I have a friend leash blue down to Half hp with me, and then I smite it when he is far enough away that I gain full XP.(I normally dont smite Buffs on start but I have bad luck of being invaded on so i sometimes do it as a precaution.)
Anyway, I start E first(ill explain later) and then Q. Lvl 3 taking E again and lvl 4 taking W. I max my E first so I clear faster and my starting items are ALWAYS, Machete+Pots. Ill upload my EXACT masteries in a few hours as I cant do it at the moment.
My reasoning for starting E first, is to gain more AoE with a better CD than my Q, also it just makes clearing faster and In my opinion its just better in general for her jungle.
This is my build order for her jungle, even though the matches usually dont last past my Lich Bane.
(Basing at Level 4, she cant really gank Pre-6)
After Spirit and Boots...
Full build if the Match Lasted long enough would be this...
I know that this really isnt that great of a build for Akali since she is a Hybrid champion, and gets the most out of going Gunblade, Rageblade, Lich Bane etc but I am not really sure where else to go since she kinda works with the build i use mega late game.
Anyhow, Her sustain is good after her first clear, its fast, her ganks are godlike, and you almost ALWAYS get a kill as long as the person cant flash past their turret. Generally I tend to mess around, watch and kinda "Scare" an opponent in a heavily pushed lane until they waste flash, then I come back about 30 seconds later and kill them. I cant really go into heavy detail considering im not in the mood to but all I gotta say is Akali Jungle is amazing.
Has anyone else Jungled Akali? Lemme know if its worked for you, im loving it, so OP :P
