Threats to Annie with this build
|Ziggs||ziggs is easy just dont get hit by the bombs|
|Akali||akali is way too easy if you get her beginning game because she is NOTHING without her ult|
|Vel'Koz||vel'koz gets oom quick and his damage output beginning game is low so its easy to just stun and kill him|
Annie costs 450 ip she is a mid lane carry
passive: every 4 spells used she receives a gust of wind rotating around her that means that her next q or w will stun the target/s.
Q: her q can be used to ks or to pick people off. But beginning game its very useful when you use q and kill a minion the CD is lower and it restores mana its useful to farm.
W: her w is a mini cone aoe used to stun more then one enemy and is used as your engage.
E: ALWAYS pop this when running away or when engaging it raises your armor so you can survive and if you get hit by a basic attack some damage will be done back to them.
R: My nigga tibbers <3 XD he can stun and if he walks near people it does damage (sunfire cape effects) he does crazy burst when summon and you can control him to use him to attack turret, champions or to use him as a shield.
READ NOTES FOR MORE INFO!!
Warning: i will never put up runes simply because you need to learn what runes to use for yourself.
Pros / Cons
Annie can be tanky believe it or not.
Annie has stuns
Very easy pokes
Decent escapes due to stun
Great in team fights
Squishy beginning game
hard to kill a champ levels 1-5
OOM quick if you dont kill minions with your Q
Relies on stuns and ult
Movement isnt the best in the world
Hard to escape/survived ganks
This will be short and sweet. When you are in mid lane focus on poking the champ with your q after killing 3 minions with your q and KEEP DISTANCE!. Every 3 minions killed with your q then you can poke the champ with your q. I follow this because i wont be oom and poke so for me its a good balance. Until your level 6 you cant be aggressive/turret dive. So annie needs to be farmed from minions when the enemy minion is at 200 prepare to use your q then when they less from 200 health use it so you're guaranteed to kill them. once you get your rod of ages or archangel staff there is no more need to worry about being OOM.
Creeping / Jungling
Hmm Its interesting i never done an annie jungle. But as for creeping goes i have and i do all the time. i roam and help other lanes if the jungler is dead or if an enemy is fed. Creeping /Roaming is when you leave your lane (usually when you kill the enemy in mid) and go help others if the jungler is not/failed. When your going to help secure a kill in top or bot make sure your stun is up so when you gank you can use your Q to stun the enemy. After the q you use your w for damage then you summon tibbers but MAKE SURE YOU USED E BEFORE ENAGAGING! After you summon tibbers you just spam your moves from there when and if they run away just keep poping e to get that stun up and chase him with q and he'll die. Start in the bushes then when its ready to strike stun with q and everyone will rape him.
Isnt that creepy and sneaky? ;)
If your HP is more then 2.5k then your the one to stun the ADC and deal the burst damage basically either be the first or second to engage the fight. But if you have half HP or less then 2.5k then you stay in the back of your team doing burst and picking off kills from those who have little health also known as ks'ing XD no one will notice the penta <3. If you are there plainly for ks'ing just let them do the work but make it seem like your fighting so they wont complain so if your teammate dies just wreck the guy who killed him or just do the q,w,r combo to kill them quick if they got really low health just use tibbers.
Its okay im here to look pretty and kill <3
Its way to easy smh unless their tank has high MR but still you can pick people off. YOu always have an advantage due to stuns and burst. If tibbers is up then you stun them by using q then w then tibbers to stun again then q then w rinse and repeat. You'll get the hang of it when your in the moment trust meeeee :p
1v1 i cant ks shh i can still steal your heart
If being Jumped or ganked by the enemy team or even if its not a 1v1 and caught by surprise then always pop your e when running away as usual. If its possible (by them being close to each other) use your w to stun then and either use that time to run away or use it to wreck them. If one person is close though while the other is chasing you from afar just use q to stun the one close to you and run away or wreck but if you wanna fight the one you stunned be wary of the one from afar.
If i cant carry tibbers will
