In this quote is some old (but important) stuff about the bug
I streamed a 6~ minute clip of the bug I'm talking about for clarification.

And in this quote is information on the bug.
Okay so we all know her Q is cast and when it lands you can trigger it to gain Energy back.
Well, if you Q a target and go to attack it and any other bonus damage [passive bonus damage] kills the target and not the Q proc, you are SOL and won't gain any Energy back.
Problem in short: Magic damage from passive kills a target when you autoattack denying you energy regain because the Q mark didn't trigger before the passive damage did.
Fix in short: Make the passive magic damage bonus deal the magic damage last; after every other calculation
This also effects her sustain because the second part of Q won't trigger, therefore she's losing sustain because her Spell Vamp won't go off for the proc. THIS is why Akali "has bad sustain". A long lasting bug that was never addressed.
For the love of god please fix this. It's been energy starving me when farming / when in teamfights since forever.
Spellblade Mastery And/Or Lich Bane (now being magic damage on-hit) is causing it again. I posted a new thread on the bug report forums.
Please keep this thread bumped, as the bug is now back as of S3 Preseason Patch.
