!!!!!!!Anivia!!!!!!!

My combo's maybe different for some other summoners but here is my way of anivia's combos

First\basic combo:
->

This Is your combo you always want to use to harass and to push in your lane and is anivia's primary skill combo. This combo usually inflicts quite a bit of damage just from one simple combo. Make sure you land flash frost or else you do absolutely no damage. And if an enemy jumps you and you miss, the cool down on this skill is long and usually you will die in earily game if you are alone.



Second combo:
->->

I find if you use glacial storm on them they are slowed and are taking damage from your ultimate, it gives you a little extra time to fling your Flash frost, and they get hit with damage and are stunned in your ultimate that is taking more damage away from them, and then when they are stunned you hit them with your frostbite or even if you miss your flash frost. You can also keep them longer in the circle if you use crystalize and keep them from getting out of your ultimate.


third combo:
->

if you missed hitting the champion with flash frost or flash frost is on cool down and you need to do damage to them now! Use Glacial Storm then hit them with a frostbite =). Also if you are missing your skill shots use this combo at least this will do some decent damage to them.


fourth combo :
-> ->

This is the combo most anivia players use.



Fifth combo :
->->

This combo is sort of like my second combo except. First put down an storm and bait them in frostbite and then almost at the same time flash frost. see once you hit them with frost bite they try to back off letting you lead with flash frost it stuns them and holds them in the storm letting it or even and basic attack to finish them off. (I give credit to lord xanatos for reminding me of this combo) Usually you can do so many different combo's with anivia that when you play that you use different combos for different circumstances. For instance if certain skills are on cool down you have to use a different combo or wait till they are off cooldown. After it just becomes instinct what skills to use.
see which combos favour you the most.

Skills




PAGE1: Standard Build
Summoners may think A ROA (Rod of ages) is overrated I do agree but with my build that involves a ROA after you get an archangel you can't go wrong. Why? because the extra mana, and mana regeneration for anivia, also remember 3% of your max mana is converted to ability power (because of Archangels staff) so you get a nice ability power boost, not to mention that it already comes with extra ability power. =)





PAGE2: Offensive build
This build Is the one I usually play with and it works really good against enemy summoners and if there is a tank then your void staff with magic penetration is here to pierce there armour =). TIP: I don't believe in stacking archangels and rabdons because they dont stack. like you wouldn't get 6% of mana converted into ability power from 2 archangels. But you would get the ability power, mana, and mana regen. Same thing goes with a rabdons death cap. If you are not happy with how much mana you have throw in acatalyst and or tear off goddess again in between an archangel and rabdons. Then Build a banshee's veil later or ROA. Also this build is dedicated to summoners who don't like ROA's.


PAGE3: editing!!!





!!!ITEM EXPLINATION!!!




Doran's Ring - Why do I choose a dorans ring off the start before mana regeneration? The reason I pick This as my starter item is because that extra ability power off the bat comes in handy for getting first blood. Also you get bonus health that is helpful and mana regeneration that anivia needs.!! You may say well I rather have an item off the start, that i can make it into a better item!! well For summoners like you i will be making a page 3 which will include a diffrent starter item that you can build into. most likely finish it today.





Tear of the goddess - Tear of the goddess is a crucial item in my build because of the mana regeneration needed for anivia. This item gives you 350 mana and each time you use an ability your maximum mana increases by 4 up to 1000 mana max. Also some mana regeneration. This item will help you use your combo's more often as well as help you get your archangels staff sooner =).





Sorcerer's Shoes - Sorcerer's Shoes I think are the best shoes for anivia. Why? Because of the movement speed because like I said anivia is one of the slowest champions, and because of it's bonus magic penetration. Which will sting enemy's who decide to get some armour.





Archangel's Staff - This item plays a big part in your damage output and is what causes squishy's without magic resist to cry ='( because you take down half there health in like one combo =). 3% mana converted into ability power, with 45 ability power and, and extra 400 mana you really can't go wrong there. This item I believe strongly in and is a must for anivia for she will own enemy's with no magic resist. The earlier you get this item the earlier you cause high damage (assuming that you are farming properly and dont wait till the enemy is in there high levels and you and your team hasn't fed). TIP: And if there is a magic resist you insert a Void Staff right after archangels staff and before your rabdon's for it's magic penetration.





Rabadon's Deathcap - This item is what will cause significant damage once you get this item. Rabdon's has a !!!WHOPPING 140 ABILITY POWER!!!!!! and your ability power is increased by 30%!!! If you think rabdon's is overrated well then your overrated because this Item is awesome. Half the time after I get this item the game ends shortly after and I don't even get to complete my build =( but usually I take nice chunks or may even kill a enemy champion in one combo =).





Void Staff - I love this item for it's magic penetration and bonus ability power. This staff is meant to be used enemy champions who have armour so you can literally penetrate there armour. You this with enemy's that have lots of armour and magic resist also very useful against tanks. =)

SPELLS

You can also replacewith because anivia is pretty slow and you might want the speed boost. Also you can use since they buffed it and its pretty awesome but I perfer . =)

!!!Masteries!!!

Alot of summoners are wondering why did you pick those masteries? Well I will tell you why I have chosen 21 in utility. Is because Like I said Anivia is very mana reliant so instead of getting a middle item to help with mana regeneration I like to substitute offence for mana regen, movement (because anivia is very slow), and cool down reduction because anivia's flash frost and wall has really long cooldowns. So you can throw more combos at them with less time. If you want offensive masteries to go with your build then pick page #2 masteries.
!!!Ive started on the second page the offensive masteries and working on the runes.!!!

SUMMARY!!!

I don't claim myself to be a master at anivia and for that fact I don't think any anivia player is a master and everytime I go into battle you think you could of done something diffrently. I have played anivia for a long time and have grown to love playing her. Anivia is a champion that not many people play but for the rare anivia players out there I have created this build because the old ones are getting outdated. I give credit to hypershatter that is currently the top build for anivia for I have used it many times and has inspired me to make this build. This is my first build and if anyone could help me perfect this build that would be great and I will update it. Criticism is welcome because I know there are always people out there that are and if you dont like this build instead of criticizing help me perfect it. Help me out with masteries too I have been experimenting with various masteries since the new ones came out.
