Threats to Annie with this build
|Annie||Annie can get annoying to deal with, Especially when she rushes in for her Frost Queen's. She's always going to be in a lookout on whenever Objective she can possible for Anchoring her buddy ADC possible. Rather be Towerdiving with the Ohmwerecker, to Disabling Enemy Wards, to even Crippling Enemy Champions (Escpially in Teamfights.) She's always going to be having some sort of work for her to deal with. She's not the best, but she sure as hell does to her job.|
Intro: Annie: That one girl that has a 400 Dollar Trophy Skin.
Hey guys! So as promised, I decided to give you Annie as my First LET'S TALK META series, and Today I'm going to talk about the secret sauce that lies with Annie and her build.
About the Build: Objective Support Annie
Because you are playing Support Annie and not "Support" Annie (As in being a complete jerk to your buddy ADC and taking all the CS for yourself. Yeah I see you.), Your role is to do as much work as you can possible: From crippling the enemies with your Passive, and your Frost Queen's and Ryial's, to disabling wards with your Sweeping Lens and Oracle, to even disabling the enemies turrets when necessarily with the Ohmwercker's Passive, Annie's Job is to handicap the enemy, and she does so with ease... Kinda.
Her Passive means that you need to use at least four of your abilities to release the stun at the end, and because of her update, The enemy can now see through your passive; making Annie either to be encouraged more in ambushing in brushes with her burst, or to play more aggressively or defensively. The enemy now feels threatened whenever they see your meter filled up, and this is both a good thing and a bad thing, because... well... they can all see it now.
Annie is an all-round balanced support champion when it comes to both backing up her ADC and in Teamfights because of your W and Tibbers. You even have an Emergency "Please-Don't-Waste-CS" Q, for last hitting minions, if in case your ADC is out for shop, or even worse, dead. And Ooooh boy, does she get tanky with this build too; meaning that you can take a few shots before falling down, instead of being insta-deleted whenever an enemy tries to burst you down to oblivion.
Annie's OP Skins
Hextech Annie is Obviously the most OP Skin, but since most people can't afford it, all of her Skins are Pretty OP in their own standards. But if I had to speak the most OP skin that isn't Hextech Annie, It would be Panda Annie. And Yes. She's a Panda Waifu. Otaku. Weeaboo? I don't know. It just looks cool.
Final Verdict: 83/100
Overall: Annie is nice to have around, and not-so-nice for the enemy. She can get scary whenever she rushes for Frost Queen's, so you have to be on your toes whenever your facing against her.
She doesn't have any real escaping tools aside from her Passive, The Ohmwercker's Passive, and Ryial's Passive, which is one of the real reasons to why she has to carry a Flash so heavily.
She has a lot of Freedom for her first spell however; mixing her up with either Heal, Exhaust or Teleport for your situations or how your mood is for Annie. So it's not all THAT bad for her.
I'd give her an 83 out of 100, because I feel that she has a LOT of potential with the build. You can cripple for days, and you can tank for days too, but you still can't save your life so easily when you're trying to escape from a chase.
And the Next champion on the list, is Kayle.
