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.
Cozart's Support Anivia
This is the build I use for Support Anivia. I thought I would dump it here and improve the article when I have free time.
Pros / Cons
+ Lots of CC
+ Life saving Passive you can use to bait
+ Q triggers Tribute and Thunderlord's Decree twice
+ Insane poke with Q and E
+ Force flashes with W
- Mana issues early game
- Very slow movement speed without items
Gets you out of tight spaces or can be use to initiate in conjunction with Q or W
Basic support summoner spell, heals you and a carry
I do not recommend trying to use this without practice but it's extremely good if you can pull it off, if you use teleport before you go into egg form, teleport continues. As you can't be cced in egg form, this becomes a nifty escape if you manage to survive.
A second chance at surviving, can be used to bait enemies or in conjunction with Teleport as an escape. Defense debuff decreases as the game goes by and eventually becomes a defense buff.
Extremely good ability, triggers Spellthief's Edge and Thunderlord's Decree twice. First half of Anivia's ridiculous poke. If you fail to land it, the enemy may punish you for it.
Creates impassable terrain, forcing flashes and maneuvering people into Glacial Storm mid to late game. Can be used to trap enemies.
Extremely good ability, does twice the damage if an enemy is slowed by any of Anivia's abilities. Used after landing Flash Frost will trigger Thunderlord's Decree making this an insane harass ability.
Ridiculous ability that shines in teamfights. Creates an area of damage and CC that increases in size and damage over time. Usually puts the teamfight in your advantage if you get the enemy team in it. If Q is on cooldown, this can be used before or after casting Frostbite to apply the double damage. Proper placement of this ability is what Anivia is about mid to lategame. Cast it under an enemy tower while sieging to deter enemies from initating or block a pathway with it. Shreds tanks when paired with Liandry's Torment.
