Introduction

I discovered how OP Annie top is by accident when I had to lane swap to avoid a Xerath in mid(in a ranked game) I went against Gnar top and did extremely well. Since then I have played many games top lane as Annie. In most champions selects people wonder if I am a troll, and explaining that Annie top is strong in every champion select is annoying I decided to make a guide.

Team Composition

Top:
Mid: Any mage/assasin
Jungler: Preferably Tanky and or someone who is good at initiating team fights

Farming/Laning

Farm is very important. During your laning phase your job is to harass you lane opponent with your auto attacks. Last hit minions with your Q to build up your stun. Also use your E to build your stun.

In General:
Against Melee: Auto attack until they are low on health then proceed with stun and enjoy the kill
Against Ranged: Try get the early farm and try not push our your lane. Wait till they are close to your turret, call your jungler stun + kill.

If you find laning difficult stay in turret with your stun up this way you wont die.

Skill Sequence

If fighting 1 v 1:
Disintegrate - stun your opponent using this
Incinerate - for some aoe damage ;)
Molten Shield to build up next stun
Summon: Tibbers if your opponent is still alive after this just spam your Q 1 more time

1v1 your job is to do the majority of your damage when the opponent is stunned.Then summon Tibbers for on-summon damage and his aa's. Rebuild your stun and win the teamfight

In team fight:
Summon: Tibbers STUN
Incinerate AOE
Molten Shield to build up next stun and absorb damage
Then finish of individual opponents using Disintegrate

In team fights:
1.If your team has a combat initiator such as or then wait for them to initiate after which do a team stun to let your team do the damage.
2.If your team does not have a good fight initiator you could Flash + Summon: Tibbers , or if you could stun 2-3 enemies off guard and start the fight.
