Spells

Your passive (Pyromania) will make every 5th ability you throw a stun, excluding the E (Molten Shield), which will not trigger it, only stack it up. Always keep an eye up for the counter.

Something that is important to note is that the Q (Disintergrate) will not stack Pyromania BEFORE it hits the target. This can be used for some tricky business. You can cast your E (Molten Shield) if the passive (Pyromania) is on 3 stacks while the Q (Disintegrate) is in the air! Land a suprise stun!

If the Q (Disintegrate) last hits anything, minion or champion, the mana will be returned, and with the newest patch, cooldown halved! Use this to build up stuns and farm! While the other mid laner is strugling getting last hits without using too much mana, laugh at them for not playing Annie and getting mana back.

The W (Incinerate) is cone shaped, and will shoot fire and damage all enemies in the cone. This is one of Annie's 2 Area stun abilities (If the Passive (Pyromania) is up). This ability does not have travel time like the Q (Disintegrate), so you can stun enemies without giving them a heads up. Cool, right?

Not much to say about the E (Molten Shield). Basically use it to build up stuns or take less damage when someone is poking you and you can see the ability coming to reduce the damage. It is a shield that gives magic resist and armor. Returns some damage if someone basic attacks you, like minions or champions.

Your ultimate ability, the R (Summon: Tibbers) is the 2nd area stun you have. When summoned, he will damage (And stun if Pyromania is stacked up) any enemy within a radius of where he is summoned! BAM! When summoned, he will follow you and attack what you attack. If you hold CTRL and right click, you can control him to go somewhere or attack something you are not attacking! Also, he deals damage to enemies near him constantly.
NOTE: IF HE DAMAGES AN ENEMY CHAMPION INSIDE TURRET RANGE, AND YOU ARE IN THE TURRET RANGE ASWELL, THE TURRET WILL ATTACK YOU, SO BE CAREFULL!
Tibbers can tank turrets for your team if you do not have minions.
