Best Akali Runes

If you are playing a well-mixed enemy team comp, you should really consider grabbing her the Conqueror, Presence of Mind, Legend: Tenacity, Last Stand, Bone Plating, and Overgrowth runes. In recent games, she won the greatest fraction of her rounds when equiped with these runes. However, if you are trying to beat a more homogenous enemy team comp, such as an AD focused or a CC centric team, you should instead browse down and to the right to find the best Akali runes to win your particular game.
