Guide to Countering Akali as Lissandra

Tips for Playing as Lissandra against Akali

Casting Glacial Path and then running in the opposite direction will leave your enemies uncertain which way you will actually go.

You can instantly use your ultimate on yourself by pressing the self cast key and the ultimate key at once (alt+R by default).

Lissandra's abilities are shorter range than those of many mages. As a result, buying items that offer both ability power and defense, like Zhonya's Hourglass and Banshee's Veil, can be a great choice to help her both survive and deal damage.

Advice to Win Against Akali

Akali's Five Point Strike is powerful when used at maximum range and energy. Engage on her when she has low energy to maximize your chance of winning trades.

Return to base if your Health is low and Akali has her ultimate available.

Akali can still be hit by area effect spells while obscured inside Twilight Shroud. Doing so will briefly reveal her position.
