I would go as far as to say that adding armor against Akali is a waste.
the problem is that LB's, TF's and Sheen's procs are physical damage. Also, her E is physical.
Even if you build her all AP (what my friend does, he gets 7AD from runes, 3 AD from masteries and completely drops AD) you're still doing about the same physical as magical damage, that's why my friend is running Ar Pen Runes
I'll try making some against Kass, but it's not easy :P Same goes for Olaf.... don't u have problems with countering easier champs? xD
