Summoner Spells Back to Top

Ok so due to the mid season changes i have found a new way to play Annie and that way is as a tank!

So for the 1st set of summoner spells i have chosen Teleport12.png and Flash 4.png . I find this very useful on this particular build mainly because as a tank that can dish out a lot of damage and and aoe stun, having that much map presence is phenomenally good and this is my reccomended set for annie.

The second set is ignite14.png and Flash4.png. This set tho not recommended is for those who want early game to be a bit easier to them and have a more offensive playstyle but again like i said, not recommended

The third set which is 3.pngExaust and 4.pngFlash is a really situational set to go. I would only recommend taking this set if theres an enemy garen86.png or vayne67.png on the enemy team or something that can dish out a lot of true damage but also can kite or is very tanky.

Masteries Back to Top

These are my masteries for Tank annie and i will agree that this is debatable but i do have a reasoning for this. With the cooldown reduction mastery it will ensure that you have your Emoltenshield.png up most of the time and it will be very beneficial to you. Thunderlord's is just a favorite of mine <3 and for some extra damage. Bandit will help you with gold to get you through your early game so you could easily get into late game. and biscuits will also help you in lane and keep you there longer. Everything else is for tank purposes and dueling purposes with the exception of summoners insight.

I wouldn't like to waste your time so lets get right into this! So the reason why you get 3 points in q is because your early game is very bad while your mid and late game are godly. Use her q to cs and keep her mana up as well as poke. Max e 1st though to be as tanky as possible and finish q after that. Grab ultimate whenever you can and max w last since it doesnt serve too much of a purpose in tank annies playstyle.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    You need to keep your enemy in a constnt state of confusion and start dorans ring for the early mana regen and damage

Core Items

    The legendary trio of items... These items will provide you with 30% cooldown reduction and the iceborn spellblad passive is amazingly good. Using this, if the enemy tries to go in on you, they will suffer the sunfires damage and your stuns while also constantly getting slowed by iceborn
    This item is a must get for Tank Annie because it procs with tibbers burn and autos and you will also have 45% cooldown reduction and this will make you a kiting monster. Though there is no specific time where you should get this you should at least get it before 30 minutes
    Rush this quickly to build into iceborn.
    The tenacity on this item is amazingly good for you and it will provide a decent amount of magic resist as well
    Cooldown reduction. Enough said

Situational Items

    This item is not stupid on annie because it will give her another form of cc and a movespeed buff so DONT QUESTION ME EVER AGAIN
    This will complete your cooldown reduction if you do not have lucidity boots and will work well with you late game

VS

Akali

Easy

Tank akali top will do nothing to you since you will easily get through all of her abilities with ease because of your aoe abilities and damage reduction


VS

Darius

Medium

You should be doing well against this champion unless you cant kite in which case, good luck

VS

Dr. Mundo

Hard

This guy..... you will have a lot of trouble against him because of his constant healing and his q damage so i suggest that you don't pick annie top against him

VS

Gangplank

Easy

remember he can only orange cc once every few moments so take that into mind and just murder him if he tries to duel you without his oranges

VS

Garen

Hard

This person is the absolute worst matchup for annie because of the true damage he does and the silence plus the tankyness and him keeping up close and personal with you

VS

Gnar

Medium

This lane should be pretty boring unless you straight up all in him since he can't do anything if you do so butonce hes a frigging dinosaur, RUN

VS

Graves

Easy

HAHAHHAHAHAHHA AN ADC AGAINST AN ANNIE. But seriously you should most likeley win lane against this guy and be able to push near his tower with ease. Watch out for those ganks though.

VS

Illaoi

Easy

This one should be an easy one if you just keep your distance and stay behind minions

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Early game this guy will go pretty even with you because f his mobility and percent health damage but mid and late game you will destroy him

VS

Malphite

Easy

Since it's a malphite he will be building armor and if he does that he will do no damage to you and you will be destroying him as well

VS

Maokai

Hard

God this guy, you'd normally think trees would burn to annie huh? but instead this guy will dish out tons of damage to you wi=hile being tanky and snaring you for ganks.

VS

Nautilus

Medium

Keep your distance and poke him. You should do well against this guy unless he ults you while you're getting ganked

VS

Olaf

Hard

This guy is the bane of your existance. He's like my ex girlfriend in where hell get on every guy he sees and just molest them in ways that arent thought possible. But seriously this guys lifesteal and ult are very very annoying to deal with and i suggest you uninstall the game before you fave this guy

VS

Pantheon

Medium

He jumps on you. Tibbers gets greek for dinner

VS

Riven

Easy

Most of the time riven does a lot of damage but she wont do that t you because of your e and ur constant cc will coounteract her mobility

VS

Shen

Medium

Easy. Because of your passive, his ult is rendered useless and you will be able to win in duels against him if you kite him out or actually jut press e ._. but the true damage is annoying

VS

Tryndamere

Medium

Shouldn't normally be too big of a problem due to your cc with the items and anniepassive.png but without these you will be buttfucked

VS

Vladimir

Medium

With this guy try to bully him as much as possible and you will be fine

VS

Wukong

Easy

The only thing you should be worried about is if your stun isn't up or the fact that you don't have a rylais or iceborn yet. but besides that he should be easy since you can cc him if he jumps onto you

Why Tank Annie? Isn't Ap Better? Back to Top

A lot of you may ask this question. Yes ap does do more damage but i have a reason for this guide. With Annie's1.png new E moltenshield.png that can give her 40% damage reduction this can make annie a monster. 
So let's talk about why tank annie is good. Her Abilities already have a lot of base damage and a high ap ratio but the selling part of tank annie isn't because of her qdisintegrate.png or wincinerate.png it's her emoltenshield.png and ultimateinfernalguardian.png.
So let's think about this. Annie's e gives her 40% damage reduction for 3 seconds on a 10 second cooldown. With 45% Cooldown Reduction this 10 second cooldown is now 5.5 seconds and now annie will have that damage reduction out every 2.5 seconds. Coupled with her tankyness and her ultimate, this is extremely good. So most of the time u can just spam ur abilities and ur e in trades and have Tibbersinfernalguardian.png do all the work for you since he games a movespeed and attack speed buff whenever he is summoned or when you stun an enemy. So with this you can also guess the damage that you will also be doing with your items as well. You will do TONS OF DAMAGE3078.png
