He provides an interest take to the AD Carry position and the Marksman class as a whole. Instead of being relegated to the bottom lane, Akshan was built with a more solo minded thought process. The way his kit is set up and how his attack speed scales is perfect for a constantly on the move champion who looks to pick fights.

This new champion can has patterns that align with the mobile skirmisher who utilizes the map to his advantage, making full use of his grappling hook. His grappling hook isn’t the only ability that sets him up perfectly for solo play either. The rest of his kit proves his worth as a solo champion, making him more than just a traditional marksman.
