Tips for Playing as Akshan against Janna

He is highly skilled in the art of stealth combat, able to evade the eyes of his enemies and reappear when they least expect him. With a keen sense of justice and a legendary death-reversing weapon, he rights the wrongs of Runeterra's many scoundrels while living by his own moral code: “Don't be an ass.”

Advice to Win Against Janna

Save an interrupt ability for when Janna uses her ultimate.

Listen for the charge up sound on Howling Gale in case Janna is trying to hit you with it from off screen or from brush.
