Introduction



Hey Guys, I'm AzinoVo. I love League of Legends and Anivia so I decided to make a guide. Hope you guys find this guide helpful to your gameplay. Keep in mind that results may vary. I do not claim to be "pro". I just want to share my knowledge and the experiences I have had at Mid Lane. I am not very good at Coding so some sections will be very plain, but I assure you, the information is there for those who wants it. :)

In this guide, you will find some tips on how to play Anivia more effectively and how to lane against other MID champions in general. Most of the information is already well known by experienced players, but I write them in anyways because I want to educate young Anivia players. I spent many hours writing this guide and so I hope for some feedback/comments. I use the spoiler buttons so people can read what they want to know more of. I hope it is not too overwhelming. My Main Guides are shown below! Enjoy! :)

Item Purchase Guide

Starting Items: Doran's Ring amd Health Potion with Warding Totem

1st Recall (~800g): Tear of the Goddess
or
1st Recall (~1200g): Catalyst the protector
2nd Recall (~1900): Rod of Ages + Boots of Speed
if extra gold, buy a Seeker's Armguard


After your Rod of Ages, you can begin to build either a Zhonya's Hourglass or Rabadon's Deathcap. I recommend building your Zhonya's for the utility it offers. Finish your Sorcerer's Shoes.

Your choice of item after the core items: Sorc shoes, Rod of Ages, Zhonya's and Rab's is pretty unique to the specific game. Build Void Staff if opponent is pretty tanky, Liandry's Torment if you wanna burn with Glacial Storm of even build Guardian Angel if you wanna troll.

Before Reading
  • Crowd Control Effects are stuns, silences, snares, fears, suppresses, knock-ups, pulls, taunts, and in certain instances, it will cause champions to be pushed back. Slows also count as a "CC" but almost all champions have one.
  • Keep in mind that all damage shown here does not consider armor and magic resist. True damage. however, ignores resistances.
  • Gap Closers are certain abilities that allow a champion to "jump" toward the target. EX: Leaps, Teleports, etc.
  • Damage Calculation totals the complete spell combo of that champion at level six. Note that all champions have physical auto-attacks. For Casters, I will add physical damage equivalent to three auto-attacks.
  • Damage Over Time will be displayed as DPS, Damage Per Second.
  • The variable, X , represents the amount of time a skill is used.

Tips on Team Fights


What To Do As Anivia


  • Target squishy champions such as the enemy's AP Carry.
  • Stay behind your tank while nuking those in the front.
  • Position your Glacial Storm so it will hit the most people. Keep in mind that it also reduces the enemy's attack speed. Use it to assist your allies if they are being targeted by a DPS.
  • Use Crystallize to prevent enemies from escaping and also to separate the enemy team. You can also use Crystallize to save yourself or your allies from chasers. Keep in mind that Crystallize also reveals terrain: Use it to reveal major locations like Blue Golem, Dragon, and Baron. Use Crystallize to reveal a nearby bush if the enemies are MIA.
  • Try to have your Rebirth available before team fights since the enemy will be quick to target you, dump all their spells on you, just to realize that you have your egg. WIN!
  • Stay mobile. Position yourself so that the enemy is in range on your spells.
  • Do get blue buff before team fights.

    What Not To Do


    • Never target the tanks.
    • Never overextend and get caught by the enemy team.
    • Never waste a majority of your Mana if you fear a team fight will occur.
    • Never use Frostbite unless you are certain the enemy is "chilled" by Flash Frost or Glacial Storm.
    • Never stray away from your teammates while in a teammate. Target one enemy champion at a time.
    • Never troll with your Crystallize. Your allies will not be pleased if you caused their death with your wall.
