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.
Annie - The Dark Child
Your Job as a Caster all about Nuking & CC'ing with an Energized Tibbers. for you to be a successful caster you will need to do well early and mid game, in other words get some kills early on for gold and experience. You are also a suitable ganker hero with your AoE stun and Insane Nuking abilities.
Nuker - Can do a lot of damage over a short period of time
Stunner - has an AoE stun that can become a gamebreaker in most teamfights
Mana Efficient - Can farm up with Disintegrate all day long if you are skilled
First Target - Smart players will target you first with CC etc.
Noob Champion? - Not really, people who don't play annie don't know the power!
Little Girl - Again, people aren't really scared of a little girl, are they?
Take one point in Incinerate and start casting it 4x times, also buy a sapphire crystal and 2x health Potions. When your Pyromania has reached 4x charges you can go down your lane and Cast a last Incinerate on your ally and /Joke. Now that you are energized you can strike fear into your opponents while you are farming, don't be afraid to harass your opponents as your attack range is very large. When you reach level 2-3 you can use Disintegrate to Last hit Minions, don't worry about the stun, you're better of using Disintegrate to farm up! Remember that the mana is refunded if you kill a minion with it. Build up for a Cataclyst and pick up Boots of speed if you got enough money. Getting First blood is very beneficial for Annie, it will allow you to get RoA faster.
buy- Sapphire Crystal
buy- 2x Health Potions
buy- Cataclyst of the Protector
buy- Boots of Speed
Now here's a little trick for you all, get 4x charges by farming with Disintegrate and use Molten Shield for the final Charge when you are about too attack someone, This is beneficial for 2 reasons:
1. They won't run because you are not energized.
2. They won't see that you are energized because of Molten Shield.
Quickly use Disintegrate or Incinerate for AoE Stun and then use Ignite and Auto attack them down, use Flash if necessary and cast Disintegrate and Incinerate whenever they are up. Pedo bear can also be used as an AoE stun and is by far the best spell to cast when you are energized! Remember to Control your Pedo Bear with "Alt + click" He dies very fast around Towers so Micro manage him good, you should keep him as long as you can for the "Immolate + Incinerate" Combo on the Minions.
buy- Rod of Ages, before the 20 minute mark
buy- Sorcerer's Boots or Mercury's Treads
buy- Mejai's Soulstealer or Haunting Guise
buy- Giant's Belt, Stamina for Warlocks!
By late-game you will either be ignored "Which is a huge mistake" or get focused down easily, remember to use Molten Shield for Protection and Keep casting Spells for that Stun to work! Just Nuke everyone out, preferly the DPS'ers first and then the Tank, watch your position as it is one of the few defences you have against Gankers. With Rylai's Scepter you will be able to Slow Fleeing enemy champions and Give you more time to charge up that stun.
buy- Rylai's Crystal Scepter
buy- Zhonya's Ring
buy- Banshee Veil
Optional: No golem buff?
buy- Elixir of Brilliance
Things to watch out for:
Stealth Champions - They are very, very, very annoying as they can just Ambush and kill you.
Slowers, Stunners, CC'ers etc - Get Mercury's Treads if it's too much for you.
Spell Shield - Black Shield and Spell Block, it's really annoying when your stunning.
Veigar - The little guy is really dangerous, he can kill you in 2.5 seconds *cough*
"Have fun, Annie is definitely one of the best casters out there"
