Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png    This is the most valuable spell ever - especially for Annie. Being able to make engages with your ult, reposition yourself after a hard engage, or just for a disengage. A Must-have!

14.png   I'd say that ignite is the most viable second spell at the moment, since teleport got nerfed (longer cd and such), so just grab ignite and get that extra pressure in lane.



Other viable spells: Depending on the situation, but I'd just go with ignite. 

Other reasonable spells:
1.png  When you're vs a cc heavy team, with a lot of cc coming from your laner and/or jungler. Examples for this are Ahri and amumu. Saving your cleanse on a clutch moment can save your life, or even get you a kill.

12.pngNot really viable anymore because of the longer cooldown, but if you feel like your botlane is going to need a lot of help, take this. It can be quite nice to have, since you'll be building cd boots with distortion.

6.png Handy summoner if you feel like you will win lane either way. It can potentially lead to an easier engage in the midgame or just let you chase down opponents.

Masteries Back to Top

So for Annie, you'll still have a general thunderlord page. 

You can go Fresh Blood instead of Feast if you're vs a melee champ or when you are good at trading in early lane. The sustain is pretty good from Feast though, because we won't be going cookies.

I choose wanderer because of the ability to roam and go back to lane. You mostly last hit with your q so you should have no problems last hitting.

The order I use for 90% of the time. You don't really need your E unless you are against a Fizz or Zed. Only use it to stack up your passive, but you can easily do that in lane with your Q while you are farming.


Annie's spells are quite straight forward. Don't think it requires more explanation :D

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Basic start, 99% of the time you should go with this.

Core Items

    You can go both. The cdr boots are good for reaching that max cap if you don't go morello. The lower cd on your flash is important for Annie as well. If you're building morello, just go with the mpen boots because you'll reach your cap at lv 18 with the runes, banshee/zhonya and morello.
    Always build one of these if not both when you need it. Having a zhonya's is good after engaging and when you need to get some cooldowns off. The new banshee's is abit of a nerf for Annie when you play against mages that have it, but you should be fine. It actually helps you too when flashing in and not having to worry about an immediate cc lock.
    I prefer building this at the moment. It's very cheap and lets you chase with tibbers. Your survivability is a lot higher as well and there are a lot of viable tanks now, which you will shred through. The current damage with tibbers chasing is actually insane, this is my core atm.
    When you're up against vlad/swain/... Don't rush lost chapter on Annie though, since you're fine manawise. Go codex and get some cdr, very useful early on when you are ahead and can kill your laner each time you have ult available.
    An example of a build against a mixed team and tanks.

Situational Items

    Can be used if you are not confident in your early (which you should be on Annie, you get outscaled late). It can be devestating to see a fed annie with RoA, liandries and rylais because of the health, though. - I don't build this unless I'm top and need waveclear with my W.

Updated item page is up! :)

VS

Ahri

Easy

Dodge her charm and you're fine. Watch out for roams of her since you'll get pushed in once she oneshots the ranged creeps with her q.

VS

Anivia

Medium

I put this in medium, because late game she will probably lock you up after engaging. You don't have a lot of mobilty, so her wall and slows will destroy you if you're against a good Anivia.


Early: very easy as she has low base health. Just be careful of her damage as she DOES hurt.

VS

Annie

Hard

Oh hell no. Pls nerf this OP champ rito

VS

Azir

Hard

I like to put this on 'hard', because I hate his poke and he can just zone you out.


I'd say skill matchup, because Annie will still burst Azir mid to late game.




Azir IS gonna get into the meta again now with the banshee's safety, but not yet.

VS

Brand

Medium

Just dodge his brandfissure.png and you denied most of his damage in the laning phase.

VS

Cassiopeia

Easy

Her damage is not something to underestimate, and you should just try to oneshot her in teamfights. 


In lane: dodge poison/if you get hit just walk away, or force her to go oom and then push her in.

VS

Diana

Medium

annoying because of her dianaW.png shield, and she can snowball hard in lane. Just play safe and dodge her dianaQ.png to negate her combo.

VS

Ekko

Easy

Keep poking him with your AA's and surprise burst him 100-0. If you don't have enough damage to burst him at once, poke him first so his ult doesn't matter a lot.



VS

Fizz

Hard

I honestly hate this matchup in this patch. The damage is RIDICULOUS with the corrupting potion and fizzseastonepassive.png


Skill matchup: the first one to burst wins.

NOTE: You do have the advantage of keeping your stun when he fizzjump.png's, but I think his damage is just too insane atm.

VS

Galio

Medium

Annoying because of his tankiness. Not mid atm but something to watch out for when in teamfights. My current core (liandries rylais) is good vs him so just let tibbers do the work after you bursted the backline.

VS

Heimerdinger

Easy

Burst. Freelo baby! 


Just be careful of his turrets, let him push because Annie is a god at farming under turret. Farm up and burst him

VS

Karthus

Easy

VS

Kassadin

Medium

His damage in this season is quite high, so don't underestimate him.


The fact that he's probably going tanky won't help your lane either - I mostly just push mid and then go roam for kills.


With his recent buff, he's quite powerful vs you.

VS

Katarina

Easy

Save your stun for her deathlotus.png and win. Because she's melee, you can probably trade a lot better if you position yourself well in lane.


Stay away from her blades 

VS

LeBlanc

Easy

I'd say easy - Burst before her


Try not standing in minions for her w-q damage. when she goes in agressively with e, stun and disengage or engage and kill her.

VS

Lux

Medium

Lot of poke, outranges you and has a shield... Annoying when she has banshee's now.

VS

Orianna

Easy

She doesn't have a lot of HP, so just burst her in teamfights and you'll negate a lot of damage


Watch out for her zoning with her ball!

VS

Syndra

Hard

Skill matchup - Think it might be hard if you're not used to laning against her. Very strong with thunderlords atm.

VS

Talon

Hard

Puts you in a sticky situation with his slows, as you have even less mobility then. 


Going magic pen is also good here, as he'll probably rush maw 

The wall hopping makes him really obnoxious to play against

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

Easy burst easy life, only be carefull of his roams.

VS

Veigar

Medium

Very annoying late game with his veigarprimordialburst.png.


Early game you do own him, so try asking for a gank and snowball the lane.

VS

Viktor

Easy

Not a meta pick right now and is weak due to rylai nerf on his side. 



VS

Yasuo

Easy

Easy: Yasuo's tend to play agressive and you have everything to counter that: A stun.


You can also poke him easily in lane which will make him miss farm if you zone him


(Your ult goes through the wall ;) )

VS

Zed

Hard

Rush Zhonya's and make use of your moltenshield.png as well. If it's a skilled Zed player, you'll be fucked at lv 6. Try to stay safe and outplay him with your stun. Make sure to have your stun up 90% of the time, so when he ults you he can do barely any damage.

Tibbers AI 'update' 6.14 Back to Top

Still feeling like the tibbers isn't working as intended. He stutters and doesnt even move to the champion I hit with it when I'm still alive. Even when I control move attack on them... seems a bit weird.
