Guide to Countering Vi as Akshan

Tips for Playing as Akshan against Vi

Raising an eyebrow in the face of danger, Akshan fights evil with dashing charisma, righteous vengeance, and a conspicuous lack of shirts. 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 Vi

A fully charged Vault breaker deals double damage. If you see Vi start to charge you should back off or try to dodge it.

Vi will shred your Armor and gain Attack Speed if she manages to hit you three times in a row. Try not to engage in extended brawls with her.

Vi cannot be stopped while using her ult. Remember to save your displacement effects until after she's done charging.
