Best Akali Runes

If you are facing a well-mixed enemy team composition, you should strongly consider getting yourself the Electrocute, Sudden Impact, Eyeball Collection, Ultimate Hunter, Presence of Mind, and Last Stand runes.

However, if you are battling a more single focused enemy team composition, such as an AP focused or a CC heavy team, you should instead glance down and to the right to get the best Akali runes to win your particular round.
