There is no ideal ally for Aphelios that will always be his best synergy. Yet, Akshan is a very typical teammate for Aphelios. By playing on the same side as Aphelios, they improves their win rate by 0.7% to 47.5%. This proves that there is a weak strategic relationship between Aphelios and Akshan that allows them to perform better together than without each other.

Akshan has a much lower diffuclty than Aphelios. That means you don't need to be cautious when lining up Akshan comrades to fight alongside, as they will have to have a much lower level of skill to fight well with you.

Playing together, you should observe an overall large increase in your team’s capacity to buff allies and debuff enemies. Together, these two should be able to manipulate the pace of team fights.

In contrast, by bringing Aphelios and Akshan together, you probably will not be granting your side much AP. We recommend you bring other champs on your team that helps cover this relative hole in this pairing's capabilities.

Regardless of your Akshan ally's ability, you should focus on increasing your gold income, staying alive by avoiding foolish fights, and clearing objectives. If you heed this simple advice, you should do well, regardless.
