Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png14.png Flash & ignite should be the main summoner spell combination on 1.png.
4.png Flash allows you to avoid ganks of escape fights... In my opinion It should mainly be used as a tool to engage on the enemy, your passive anniepassive.png + your ult infernalguardian.png/ W incinerate.png become one of the strongest teamfight initiations in the game , and flash make the combo even more difficult to predict.
14.png Ignite because of the fire synergy.
3.png Exhaust can be taken instead of ignite if your kill potencial in early game is low (mainly if you can't all-in safely in lane or if mid is really hard to gank) since ignite late game is quite bad. Also it's a great summoner against heavy assassin comps that scale well into the late game and can be usted defensively or ofensively.
13.png Also have in mind that high elo korean players are choosing clarity as the strongest pre-season spell on Annie. Kappa.

Masteries Back to Top

Here is where the crazy stuff begins. I know that the main way to play Annie is focusing the cunning tree to get Thunderlord so let me share with you my thought process. Since the nerf in Annie AA range is not that easy to apply the 3 damage instances to proc TL. The only way to ensure TL will proc is to use a 2 spell + 1 AA combo, but if you spam that kind of combo you will run out of mana really fast so i decided to sacrifice the chance of having TL for a more tanky aproach. CoC is easy to proc because Annie can hard cc with 3 out of her 4 skills and the numbers on the shield atm seem to be crazy strong even if you are not an hp tank. 

The 30 sec cd mean that will be up for every fight which will help you tarde better, survive ganks and stay alive during teamfights allowing you to cc more people thus peeling your adc or securing kills for your teammates.

In general you are getting from your masteries:
-More health that will help your CoC keystone
-Health/mana regen and improved pots = more sustain 
-Movespeed adding that roam potential
-Summoner spells CDR which means more surprise engages
-Decente buff to your poke? Sry, i'm not sure how greenfather's gift works.

Standard lvl/up spell order.


disintegrate.png Q is your low cd high damage targeted skill. Use it to poke in lane or to ensure a single target stun with your passive. Since it's a targeted spell unless it's blocked by a spellshield blackshield.png spellshield.png nocturneshroudofdarkness.png or a wall braumE.png yasuoW.png, or the target is put into stasis 3157.png bardR.png the projectile will always land so It will always stun.

incinerate.png W is your first AoE spell so once you get It you will be able to stun múltiple tatgets. Keep in mind it's high mana cost that can lead to oom situations (either you back to replenish your mana or you are exposing yourself to fights without resources)

moltenshield.png E is way better than It used to be. Imstead of armor and mr now gives damage reduction so don't forget to use It during fights or trades it's more powerful than It seems. It can also be used to charge your stun for a low amount of mana. Remember that when you have three charges of the passive and fire a disintegrate.png Q you can moltenshield.png E while the projectile is mid air to give your disintegrate.png Q stun, this trick tends to surprise people.

infernalguardian.png Once you get your ultimate It should become your combo starter in every engage since it's the longest range spell of Annie kit and also have a decente AoE. Stunning an enemy with your passive anniepassive.png will make Tibbers focus him and entre berserker mode (AA speed and move speed buff) for a short periodo of time. 

anniepassive.png Your passive is a stun on every fifth damaging spell you cast, this is what makes Annie such a strong engager and considering It can be applied with 3/4 spells that in the case of disintegrate.png and incinerate.png have such a low cd, if you play her well you will be able to spam cc during fights.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Following the nature of this build we will start Relic. Proc the gold passive should be easy with Annie's Q, this will give you safe gold income and some hp back for you and your adc.
    Pinks were worth buying, dunno if this is similar, we'll see.

Core Items

    As first finished items you will usually want Sightstone for the vision control and next FotM which will give you and an ally a shield during fights.As son as you get Sightstone remember to swap trinkets, and upgrade the red one once you reach lvl 9.
    You can get your boots before of after the Sightstone, buy mob boots before Sightstone if you are going to roam a lot, if not go for lucidity or more defensiva boots after Sightstone.
    Your core stats are hp and CDR, you will act like a leona or any other cc tank but ranged. Ap or resistences are Also very good.

Situational Items

    Be aware of the situation, if you are doing good maybe you can go for more damage,or maybe you need to be more tanky . Choose wisely.

Last thoughts Back to Top

This guide is aimming to create a new type of playstyle with Annie. You are supposed to be a heavy control tanky caster (sounds cool right).

Annie early game should be almost the same as before since your damage comes from base numbers on your spells. You will be more tanky and have a bit less damage.
The build is not oriented to blowing people up in late game but to become a decente tank for your team that, with some cdr , will have cc for days.

I hope you all enjoyed this guide and it would be great if you could comment any idea or opinion so the community can benefit from your experience. See ya all in the rift!
