Akai Item Build

Brief Introduction

If you are a fan of kungfu panda, Akai is definitely a hero for you. Being the only panda in the game, Akai the panda warrior is a tank hero with interesting characteristic. In this post, we will be covering some of the recommended item build for Akai.

Akai is a Meat Tank with his ultimate, turning himself into a rolling ball that deals magical damage and knocks back enemy target. Experience Akai players will usually use his ultimate to push enemy into a wall, dealing maximum damage whilst immobilising them.

Interesting Fact – Akai seriously reminds me of kungfu panda..
