Introduction

Hello, everyone. Welcome to my Annie guide.

I'd like to start with a short explaination of the previous chapter of the guide. I made the first section with a specific group of people in mind. Players who are already well on their way to playing their first match as Annie, but without the time to read a guide.

I added that section because in the past I was a new summoner with no champions of my own and often got stuck with a champion I didn't want to play. I would panic and look up a guide for whoever I was stuck with and had to flail my way through the guide looking for valuable information, so I took it and compressed it all there.

Anyhow! Annie is a very simple, squishy, high damage mage with very high AP ratios, several AoEs and a powerful hard CC passive. She's the glass cannon that shoots bears.

This guide is focused on generating enough AP quickly enough to be able to burst down someone one-on-one and also remove a high-importance target from a teamfight, without dying.

I thought of creating a PROS vs CONS section, but those mostly seem like they are in guides for comic relief.

Fairly straight-forward caster Masteries, mostly aiming towards flat out damage, with a bit changed up here or there.

Offensive
Butcher is taken over two points in Mental Force , since two AP is much less noticeable than four extra damage for last-hitting when you are waiting to use your stun or in between your Disintegrate cooldown.

If you prefer Ignite to Teleport or Flash, feel free to drop a point in Mental Force to get Summoner's Wrath .

Utility
Summoner's Insight is only required if you have Flash, if not, it can be dropped.

Expanded Mind and Good Hands are both equally useful if you play properly, and by that I mean not very useful, feel free to take either one, or just throw a point into Improved Recall

Meditation isn't taken because our Runes easily take care of our early game mana issues, making Swiftness a much better investment.

Runic Affinity extends the duration of your Blue Golem Buff, which your jungler should be letting you have most of the time. Don't have a jungler? Go get it now.

Summary / Credits

I wish you many happy gankings in your games as Annie. Be polite to your fellow summoners(even the ones who aren't polite) and try to have fun.

Special thanks to jhoijhoi and his guide.
