Akshan - General Playstyle & Gameplay Tips:

Laning Phase (Levels 1-4):

Focus on CS'ing and dodging skill shots. By level 4, look for more aggressive trades as enemies should be low on mana.

Against Ranged Champions:

It's hard to trade with champions that outrange you. Focus on CS'ing, dodging skill shots, and look for roams. Build Crit and use Q to waveclear.

Against Medium Range Champions:

Use your Q and autos to proc Press the Attack. By level 5, the enemy should be low enough for a potential kill. Build on-hit items for these matchups.

Against Melee Champions:

Maintain distance and avoid letting them get close. If they can't kill you, you're winning. Focus on CS and surviving. Build on-hit items against melees.

Roaming as Akshan:

Always look for roaming opportunities, especially when the enemy mid laner is absent. This helps in impacting sidelanes and the jungle.

Team Fights as Akshan:

Use your mobility to position yourself safely while dishing out damage. Look for opportunities to pick off isolated targets with your R.

Dragon and Baron fights as Akshan:

Assist your team in securing these objectives. Your mobility can be crucial in contesting or stealing these objectives.

Akshan - Matchups:

Good Matchups:

Champions with medium range or those with predictable skill shots. Akshan can dodge and trade effectively against them.

Bad Matchups:

Champions that can outrange Akshan or those with hard CC that can lock him down during his E.

Champions Strong Against Akshan:

Champions with hard CC, burst damage, or those who can outrange him.

Champions Weak Against Akshan:

Champions that Akshan can kite easily or those who can't handle his mobility.
