[13.1B] [Master] Free Elo Anivia Guide (INCLUDING WALL TRICKS)

By FrostbiteMW
Hey, I'm FFrostbite and this guide is about my Anivia ! Im a high elo EUW streamer and player, often sitting in mid master. I've played thousands of games as Anivia and always perform well!
In this guide I'm gonna show you how to play her to climb easily in SoloQ!

These are my stats in Season 12 and past seasons (master soloq)

You can find me streaming at my TWITCH CHANNEL. Ask questions if you have any!
Pro and Con


good waveclear
strong pick potential
alot of damage in teamfights
able to peel really good
strong mid/late game
hard cc


weak earlygame
needs alot of mana
falls behind easily if ganked
easy to learn but hard to master
bad if enemys have high mobility

| Passive - Rebirth |
Upon taking fatal damage, Anivia reverts to an egg and is reborn with full health.

| Q - Flash Frost |
Anivia brings her wings together and summons a sphere of ice that flies towards her opponents, chilling and damaging anyone in its path. When the sphere explodes it does moderate damage in a radius, stunning anyone in the area.

| W - Crystallize |
Anivia condenses the moisture in the air into an impassable wall of ice to block all movement. The wall only lasts a short duration before it melts.

| E - Frostbite |
With a flap of her wings, Anivia blasts a freezing gust of wind at her target, dealing damage. If the target was recently hit by Flash Frost or damaged by a fully formed Glacial Storm, the damage they take is doubled.

| R - Glacial Storm |
Anivia summons a driving rain of ice and hail to damage her enemies and slow their advance.
Keystone Rune
Electrocute is the most aggresive choice and standard choice atm. As summoners you go for Ignite here. It's often used against immobile Enemys with no way to dodge your spells. Make sure to hit your Flash Frost and follow up with Frostbite and an autoattack for a free Electrocute proc. If you have Cheap Shot you deal bonus damage aswell.

Phase Rush is the second standard choice. Its viable in some matchups where u want to gap close and dodge skillshots alot. As summoners you go for Ignite or Teleport here. It's often used against immobile long range Enemys like Xerath who rely on skillshots. Make sure to hit your Flash Frost and follow up with Frostbite and an autoattack for Phase Rush. The bonus movement speed is also helpful to dodge ganks.

First Strike is only used in special matchups. If you attack an enemy first you gain 10% bonus damage against that enemy for 3 seconds. You gain 70% of the bonus damage you deal as gold + an additional 5 gold. The rune is super good vs meelee matchups, such as Akali, Sylas or Galio. They cant hit you easily, so you can make use of the rune as often as possible. On the other hand the rune is really bad against poke mages like Xerath, Ziggs or Lux. They will often hit you first, making First Strike useless.
In the early game the rune only gives you around 10 gold per use. Later on a full combo gives you around 100+ gold. Thats a really nice way to generate bonus gold for expensive items!

Predator is also barely used. Its really good if you roam alot. If you use it you also have to go for Ingenious Hunter. It reduces the cooldown of items. That makes Predator more viable, but is also really good for items like Everfrost or Zhonya's Hourglass.
If you have Predator try to push out your wave and look for roams in top or bot. Use the rune by simply clicking your boots and run the enemy down. This way you can create leads at other lanes and snowball the game.

Unsealed Spellbook isn't used often but has an insane amount of potential! You have early game pressure with Ignite. At minute 6 you can free Teleport back to lane or roam top/bot. You can also pick up Ghost to roam, Exhaust to have a better 1v1 or Smite to steal baron/drake.
It is my go to keystone but you can also use others

Arcane Comet is the most common keystone amongst new Anivia players. You swap Ignite with Teleport if you take it. With Comet you have alot of free damage in lane thanks to it. Generally the other keystones are better and have more usage, so I dont really recommend this choice.
Level 1-5

Flash Frost > Frostbite

Try to hit your Q when the Opponent goes for Last Hits. It's harder for him to dodge the Q when he is trying to farm. After that follow up with an empowered E. Add Autoattacks while the Opponent is stunned (also procs Electrocute)

Flash Frost > Frostbite (ADVANCED)

Use your E shortly after using Q. This way both will land at the same time (Frostbite will still do double the damage). People often dont expect the quick burst.

Frostbite > Flash Frost > Frostbite

Start poking the enemys with autoattacks and your E. Follow up with Q and another E.

Crystallize > Flash Frost > Frostbite

place your W behind the enemy. He will either start walking left or right. Aim your Q towards where he is going and follow up with E.

Flash Frost > Crystallize > Frostbite

throw your Q at the enemy. Directly after try to place your W ontop of the enemy - ideally he will be knocked into your flying Q. Follow up with E.

Level 6 Poke

Flash Frost > Frostbite > Glacial Storm > Crystallize > Frostbite

Start with the Q -> E combo. After that place your R on the enemy, W off their escape and follow up with another E.

Glacial Storm > Crystallize > Frostbite > Flash Frost > Frostbite

Start by casting your R on the enemy. Place W behind them, so they are stuck in your R. Follow with E into an easy Q hit since they are slowed - into another E.


Flash Frost > Glacial Storm > Frostbite > Everfrost > Crystallize > Frostbite

Start by casting Q. Immediately after cast R, so they are slowed and cant dodge Q as easy. Follow up with E, into Everfrost Root, into W behind them, into another E.

Glacial Storm > Everfrost > Flash Frost > Frostbite > Crystallize > Frostbite

Start with R into Everfrost Root. This way they cant dodge the Q afterwards. Follow up with E, into W behind them, into another E.
Wall Tricks
Minion Wall Block

by doing this you wont have to overextend to farm. The minions will be close to your turret, which makes it super hard to gank you.

Jump Interrupt

this works on things like Tristana W - Rocket Jump, Rek'Sai W - Furious Bite /Tunnel or Zac E - Elastic Slingshot

Blast Cone Interrupt

place the wall slightly after the cone gets hit.

Engage Block

works against Nunu Biggest Snowball Ever! or Sion Unstoppable Onslaught - I highly recommend picking Anivia vs them - their engage will be useless!

Instakill - Stuck

this works on almost every wall on summoners rift. Always keep that in mind! Most people dont even try stuff like this. They wont be able to move and will almost always die or Flash.

General Playstyle

You will most likely fall behind early game. Try to save your mana early game and only go for simple Q > E trades when you can. Key is getting as much CS as you can while not wasting alot of mana. Try to recall at around 1k+ gold. This way you can buy boots, tear and healthpots + control ward.

Once you hit Level 6 you can clear waves easily with Glacial Storm

In Lane you can now play more aggresivly as you will win trades now. Try to push in your lane and roam Bot or Top. You can also camp in brushes and try to assasinate the enemy laner if he tries to follow you.


Once you start grouping and teamfighting it's your time to shine!
Try to Crystallize Enemys of by placing the Wall behind them. Maxing your Crystallize before maxing Flash Frost is esential here. Your Wall will be really big and once you land a good one your team can easily follow up on it and catch people!

In Teamfights try to place your Glacial Storm between the Opponents and you, so they have to enter it first to kill you. Try to stun as many people with Flash Frost or protect and peel your teammmates with those spells.


Once you reach your late game it should be really hard to kill you. With 45% CDR you can now try to catch people with Crystallize every few seconds. You can change entire teamfights with good Walls. Also your Frostbite has now a really low Cooldown. In case anyone tries to jump on your backline you can place Glacial Storm on them and burst them with Frostbite into Flash Frost into another Frostbite.


Play safe early game!
Try to catch people with your Crystallize!
Abuse the power of Unsealed Spellbook!
Once you hit 45% CDR people dont expect your low cooldowns!
Be a backbone and major carry in teamfights!

At the moment i prefer Everfrost over everything else because of the added cc.

Crown of the Shattered Queen is good against enemys with huge burst.
I recommend it vs already fed assasins like Zed. If thats not the case you wont need it.

If you want to go burst - build Luden's Tempest

If the enemys have alot of tanks you can build Liandry's Anguish
