Wild Rift Akshan Best Runes
You can equip the following Rune Setup to give more bite on Akshan’s attacks, making them more lethal and will also help solidify his lower stats. As a marksman, he relies on Mana to do his bidding, so he must handle it effectively. That’s where Manaflow Band enters the picture. Arming him with an item (Adaptive Carapace) to get bonus max health will be crucial to make it out alive in tight situations.
Conqueror: Getting stacks of AD or AP when hitting enemies will make Akshan a focal point on offense (in the damage department) for the team, especially when fights go on an extended run.
Brutal: The early game performance is critical to Akshan’s game. Brutal will help him gain attack damage or ability power to make him more effective in the early phase of the match.
Adaptive Carapace: Extra health is always a good thing! This item can help Akshan survive intense team fights, flee from danger, or and aid to get an extra breath to snatch a kill.
Manaflow Band: You’ll need all the mana you can, and this item dramatically helps to increase your max mana.
