I use this for the Ignite buff

Allows you to finish a guy when u have all abilities on cd easier

It gives additional ap in lategame

Much more dmg. Very good masterie


ittle bit dmg, but used to continue offensive masterie tree

Little bit Ap, its a good boost early game

I use this masterie for finishing and enemy and farming, but lategame its useless

Very good snowball masterie, this 5 ap for every 100 ap is very useful

Very good as Anivia because if gives much more dmg to finish, so it gives so much dmg with E-R combo

Less cd on Flash. Sometimes useful

Gives very nice mana sustain. Always pick it as Anivia

More mana in lategame is sometimes useful, but it is much more because we will go Arcangel Staff.

Very important on Anivia. As Anivia u need to keep blue up all the time u can.

Not important. Makes you come faster to lane but is almost useless

Guide Top



Flat armor because now its very popular going ad mid(Kha┬┤zix, Panth, Zed) And mid/lategame carry will burst down you so fast if u dont pick this


Flat Mpen because it is considered offensive rune so scales much better than ap


Flat Mr because if not u will be burstered so fast by champs like Lux


Ap ofc. Gives a very good early boost and makes u kill easier your midlaner enemy

Normal combo= Q-E-R-W-AA

This is nromal combo for Anivia but it has now chance to hit Q and we dont use ult properly

Finish/fast dmg combo= E+R

We use E and then R for easy and fast dmg. If u are not skilled go R+E. Also u dont need to hit Q and its very good for poking

Personal combo= Q-W-E (Wait E cd) E-R

I like this combo because u have much more chance of hitting Q and then we can finish them using E-R.

After passive= R-E-Q-W-Ignite

I use this combo (ofc only after passive) because it gives HUGE dmg in very low time. Then run and cast W, so u will keep him in ult

Guide Top


As anivia in a teamfight (supposing they engaged) u need to R all their team, or ult where is your adc, then hit E (try to E ad/ap carry) and Q. Also u need to cover your adc, u can safe him with almost all your abilities.
Supposing you engaged u need to Q enemy team, when it finish R them and W behind them (so they can escape from your ult and teammates) and E.
