Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
I have been playing anivia for a while :) I also died only a few times. I had a lot of clean death mathes with many kills :) I hope you all like this build.
This is also my first guide so. :P Tips are welcome!
For runes I take some Magic penetration/Ability power and cooldown reduction.
I get magic pen to deal a huge amount of damage.
They Cooldown reduction runes are needed to use your skills faster. I noticed that without it looks forever till you can use your Q again.
Ap per level just to have some extra AP
As you can see I focus to get Catalyst the protector first and then I get some movement speed 2 boots. I do this to use the passive of this crystal :).
After I get that I get the sorcery boots that gives extra Magic penetration!:D
Then I go for Rod of ages and Rabadons Deathcap for more pain <3
As you noticed I also get Guardian Angel. Why would I need that? Anivia already has its egg.
Well Guardian Angel Gives you some extra Armour/Magic resist it also revives you again! <3
With Guardian Angel I had survived many times. You resurrect and bam Q-E Combination or Wall/Q and fly away! :D
After Guardian angel I get Will of the acient for some spell vamp it really helps you. If you see a minion wave you just pop up your ult and heal your self quickly :)
And for my last item i get void staff for extra penetration that means more damage! :)
For the first skill I go for Q it gives you a long ranged attack(so you can poke who ever you are fighting with) and then I focus maxing E first :) but I get wall at level 4 It is really handy too use it for your view distance or to block your enemy.
Q is the skill you mostly uses to stun and poke from a long distance.
E is the skill you uses when someone is frozen to hurt the enemy badly!
W is the skill that you can use too save your team mates/Yourself or to block enemys who want to get away! It is also handy so expend your view :P
R is the skill too farm and deal some dmg/slow your opponent!
The spell combinations I mostly use are.
Q-E-R-W (Stun/dmg,Lots of Dmg,Slow,block) and repeat if possible :)
Q-E Just too hurt someone in my lane!
Q-W Too get away from Champions chasing me :S Q to stun and W to block
It is easy to use but hard to master. For Q you need too be able to guess the direction your opponent will head too. I played against a AP yi ones its a good example :) Yi is fast and has a annoying Q skill but ofcourse if you watch carefully you use your Q where Yi started his Q skill and stun him / deal lots of dmg so he only Poked you and you almost killed him!:)
Enemy champoins won't stay and wait for your Q too hit make sure you are able to guess the directions!
I use Flash and Clarity.
Most of my team mates say its bad to have Clarity as anivia but I say its perfect.
Clarity gives you mana and Anivia needs lots of mana. It will let you survive early game a lot and even late game if your team mates won't give you blue buff! :S
Clarity can also save your team mates :O!
I use it to get away or too use Flash-Flash frost-Flash bite combination when a enemy tries to get away :P
