Akali and DFG

#1dranen87Posted 3/20/2013 2:02:29 PM
So I'm re-examining my Akali game, trying to carry myself out of Bronze. I was looking at Deathfire Grasp and wondering if I should get it after Gunblade, if at all.

Thoughts?

Super helpful. I'll keep that in mind when I'm trying out Ahri. But this about Akali,

I usually don't pick it up, Rylais, Zhonyas, and Lich Bane are almost always better pickups at any given time, not to mention you'll need to build a tank item at some point

GunBlade is core

Ryalis
Zhonyas (ussually core)
warmogs (idk it works)
GA (meh depends on situation)
Abyssal (very rare)

pretty much all the defense you need

Lich bane
Death Cap


I don't advice any other items.

Why the hell would you get Gunblade on Ashe, she doesn't even use the active she has her own slows.

Gunblade -> Giantsbelt -> Zhonyas/DFG -> DFG/Zhonyas -> Warmogs + Voidstaff(or lichbane if they arent spamming magic resist)

Do not get a rylais, warmogs gives far better survavibility for the cost, the slow is a waste, and the ap gain is meh.

What do you do when faced with two choices? Simply toss a coin. It works because in that brief time that the coin is in the air you know what you're hoping for.

Gunblade is an overrated first pickup. Revolver + Rylai's is much better and provides more utility and tankiness. You can even just get a Void Staff after and wreck with insane base damages.

DFG got nerfed, still okay, but it's better to get a Rabadon's or giants->Rylais instead after Gunblade

Get DFG if you are going glass cannon, and need the extra burst and CDR
