Hello there! My name is Rath101 and I'm here to teach you how to use Annie The Dark Child I would recoment Annie to anyone who loves to be able to keep coming at an enemy from behind and doesn't like to be on the front lines . Remember , be Creative with items and try to have fun ! This is my second guide I hope you enjoy it. Don't forget to leave a comment and tell me what you think.
Pros / Cons
[*] High Burst
[*] Lots of AOE
[*] Lots of Spam
[*] Hard to shut her killing spree down
[*] Lots of spam
[*] Relatively Slow
[*] Vulnerable to Junglers with alot of burst
In runes i focus on Mana and Ability Power . Get 9 Glyph of Ability Power . this will improve your damage out-put in the lane. Get 9 Mark of Mana . This will help you in sustain combined with 1 Greater Quintessence of Mana . Also get 9 Seal of Armor so you can survive a gank from a jungle. And finally get 2 Greater Quintessence of Ability Power to cap your damage out-put.
In Mastery go 21/9/0 focusing in ability power offense Mastery , and Health and Defense Mastery under Defense. The reason you don't get any Utility mastery points is Annie has plenty of damage. If someone tries to chase she can burst them down and KILL . Plus she is a Mid laner and can farm gold by herself.
In Items I usually start out with a Doran's Ring 2 Health Potions or Mana Potions . If you are looking for more sustain build a Sapphire Crystal and 2 Health Potions . For her core items I build Lots of Ability Power , Magic Penetration , and Health / Mana . You build these 4 Attributes to maximize Damage and Durability . AS seen in Core Item Build I rushed Liandry's Torment for its Magic Penetration if you are to weak get Rylai's Crystal Scepter ( after Sorcerer's Shoes ) . After that get Rod of Ages for its Health and Mana . After you get those get the 3 main Ability Power items for their power ; Rabadon's Deathcap , Zhonya's Hourglass and finally Deathfire Grasp .
In Skill Sequence you max your w Incinerate first because it is a high burst AOE damage dealer. Then you max your Q Disintegrate for the damage and low cool-down . You max E Molten Shield last because it is the least useful. AS with all ultimates max them whenever you can.
Annie is a short cool-down mage that can attack multiple enemies at once and take down minions at once .When playing as Annie play passively until level 4 when you have 2 points in your w Incinerate has 2 points and you can burst remember use your passive Pyromania with your strongest spell . Also spam your Disintegrate because you can harrass with it and it has a low cool-down . Once you get to level six save your Ultimate Summon: Tibbers until you need it because it is very useful in a team fight because you can select a specific area to use your ultimate. Use your E Molten Shield in a team fight for reduced damage. Also Don't lead the charge stay from behind and stay alive.
