We have previously discussed how to master playing with other LoL Wild Rift heroes like Amumu, Master Yi, Jinx, Braum, and Dr.Mundo. So make sure to check these hero guides as well. For now, let’s focus on Akali.

Skill analysis

Akali is a hero with the common five skill sets of one passive and four actives. In this Akali guide, let’s see what are her abilities in LoL Wild rift, and when you can use which skill to get the best out of her.

Passive – Assassin’s Mark


Innate: Akali’s ability damage against enemy champions creates a ring around them for 4 seconds and grants her 40 / 50 / 60 / 70% (based on level) bonus movement speed for 2 seconds while moving away from them. Subsequent ability damage while a ring is active will only refresh its duration. If Akali leaves the ring within its duration, she regains the bonus movement speed towards enemy champions for 2 seconds and gains Swinging Kama for 4 seconds.

Swinging Karma: Akali’s next basic attack’s range is doubled, deals 39 − 180 (based on level) (+ 60% bonus AD) (+ 50% AP) bonus magic damage and restores 10 / 15 / 20 (based on level) energy.

Skill 1 – Five Point Strike (CC, Blink)

skill 1

Active: Akali unleashes a flurry of kunais in the target direction, dealing magic damage to enemies hit. Enemies hit at the maximum range are also slowed by 50% for 0.5 seconds. At rank 5, Five Point Strike deals 25% bonus magic damage to minions and monsters.

The skill is best useful when used from a distance from the enemy. By this Akali can activate her passive and also slow the enemy. The skill is also helpful for clearing minion waves, so making it an important skill at the start of the match.

Skill 2 – Twilight Shroud

skill 2

Active: Akali restores 80 energy, gains bonus movement speed that decays over 2 seconds, and detonates a smoke bomb a fixed distance away in the target direction, creating a circular shroud that expands over the next 5 seconds into a ring. The shroud does not permeate terrain. Entering the shroud renders Akali invisible unless she is dashing.

Akali’s basic attacks and abilities will break the invisibility and prevent her from entering it for 1 − 0.625 (based on minutes) seconds, refreshing on subsequent attacks and casts. The marked section of Twilight Shroud will linger for the mark’s duration, even after the shroud ends. The skill is very useful for Akali making an ace assassin. The skill can be very useful as an escape plan in a tight situation.

Skill 3 – Shuriken Flip

skill 3

Active: Akali flips in the opposite direction and fires a shuriken in the target direction that stops upon hitting an enemy, dealing them with magic damage. The shuriken marks the enemy or the last smoke section hit for 3 seconds. While the target or smoke section is marked, Akali can reactivate Shuriken Flip.

Recast: Akali dashes towards the marked target or smoke section, consuming the mark, regardless of distance. Against enemies, it deals with the same magic damage upon arrival.

The skill will be very useful during the middle part of the game with engaging and disengaging in fights. The dash and attack combo of the skill can be used to escape from a bad situation and also chase enemies. But, it is important to keep in mind that, the skill isn’t just for mobility enhancement, a well-timed combo and full-on attack is a great option with the skill.

Skill 4 – Perfect Execution

skill 4

Active: Akali dashes 675 − 825 (based on distance from target) units towards the target enemy champion, dealing physical damage to all enemies in her path. Perfect Execution can be recast after a 2.5-second static cooldown within 10 seconds of the first activation.

Recast: Akali dashes in the target direction, dealing magic damage to all enemies in her path, increased by 0% − 200% (based on the target’s missing health). The delay between Perfect Execution dashes gives you time to unleash a flurry of strikes, but can also leave you vulnerable to a counterattack. So, it is recommended to plan the combo accordingly.

League of Legends: Wild Rift Akali Gameplay Tips

Akali is normally played in the middle region but she is not recommended for a charge attack. She is the best use as a hidden and silent killer making her the ultimate assassin. According to her gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our League of Legends: Wild Rift Akali guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game in the game.

Early Game

In the early game, proceed in the middle lane to just clear the minion waves. Unlock the Five Point Strike skill and use it effectively to use the passive skill also. With passive activated, Akali will gain movement speed and swinging kama, try to deal damage to enemies.

Wild Rift Akali Guide

Do not try to charge in if you are not confirmed of getting the kill. Try to rotate on and around the middle lane until you reach the level, after which the minion damage boost will unlock.

Mid Game

During the middle game, focus on covering the three lanes but do not engage directly with the enemies. This is the stage where Akali should level up fast as compared to any other champion in the game.

Wild Rift Akali Guide

Try to be patient and charge in the right moment in the usual hide and seek manner. Unleash the range of combos using Akali’s skills and confirm one kill each time and retreat from the team fight.

Late Game

Akali may get ineffective during the late stage of the game especially in team fights. She can just sort out each champion stranded alone and then go for the kill.

Wild Rift Akali Guide

Akali shouldn’t rush in team fights and wait for her chance and execute her combos to confirm kills. You can use the following skill combo on her for her late game combos.

Skill 3+Skill 3+ Skill 1+ Ultimate + Ultimate + Skill 1

Akali can be countered by heroes like Olaf and Annie.

Final Thoughts

Akali brings in a range of combo attacks with her active and passive skills. The difficulty comes in with the timing and execution of the combos. The trick is to get confirmed kills during the early and middle stages of the game. With the perfect balance of stats and gameplay in Wild Rift, it is of very importance that Akali gets more kills and feeds less to the opponent’s team. If Akali fails to get kills and feed her enemies, she would be useless during the entire game.

With the above guide, you can easily practice Akali in LoL Wild Rift, and before heading to play ranked matches practice a little bit in the PVP mode.
