Just picked up Akali in Wild Rift and need a bit of help? Fear not! Our guide on the Rogue Assassin will help you become a master of the midlane in no time at all.


Fleet Footwork


Spirit Walker

Hunter - Genius

Akali deals enough damage already, so take Fleet Footwork to give her even more mobility and bit of added sustain to boot. Akali's dynamic kit lets her build up stacks of this rune quickly, letting you stay glued to your enemies!

In red, Triumph is a very effective choice for assassins like Akali, as it lets you finish off a target and then navigate out of dangerous situations afterwards.

Spirit Walker offers you a stat boost right from the start of the match and even manages to have an impact in the late game thanks to its +20% resistance to slows.

In blue, Hunter - Genius is a perfect choice thanks to its incremental CD reduction that scales throughout the game.


Here's the best skill order for Akali. Max our her abilities in the order outlined below, but don't forget to rank up her ultimate whenever you can.

Tips and Tricks

  • When dashing towards enemies with Shuriken Flip, you can still cast other abilities during the dash animation.
  • Once you recall, use Twilight Shroud and Shuriken Flip once you leave the fountain to get back to your lane as quickly as possible. This give you some extra time in lane, which may translate into a gold or EXP advantage over your adversary.
