What few know, however, is that phoenixes are elemental beings, formed by the eternal essences of their native world. Anivia was conceived on a world such as this - a being of the coldest winter, a creature of pure elemental ice. On her world, Anivia was the protector of the frozen wastes and all those with the spirit to endure in such unforgiving places. She was consulted as a creature of great wisdom, one who could not die and who had seen the world renewed several times. Somehow, Anivia knew that the day would come when she would be plucked from her home and pulled across worlds, and when that day came, she received the call with grace. Seeing the imbalance and injustice on Runeterra, a world lacking elemental protectors, Anivia took her place at the League of Legends. Since her arrival, the Cryophoenix has chosen to live among the highest peaks of the Northern Ironspike Mountains, adjacent to the frozen wastes of Freljord. She has openly claimed this territory as her own protectorate. Surprisingly, Anivia has struck up a friendship with the yeti of this region - a friendship that grows deeper and deeper with each passing moon. She has formed a close bond with two League champions: Nunu (and Willump) and the nomad princess Ashe. In a move that caught the League by surprise, the Cryophoenix recently entreated the summoners of the Institute of War to research a means in bringing across others of her elemental fellows. As a champion, Anivia is revered with a sense of awe by most, but is not the most popular as most consider her unapproachable. Some say the world will end in fire, some in ice. Anivia awaits the inevitable latter.

Introduction

Anivia is one hell of a champion! High damage output, an amazing (and somewhat cheap) passive, and all out epic! Anivia is best as an APC mid. She has great range, and with the right items, can be unstoppable. Anivia is SUPER fun to play, although a bit hard to learn, with practice you'll get the hang of her, and she'll be a blast.
Back to Top

Items

I suggest starting with boots for Anivia because of her painfully slow movement speed (at least early game). 3 health potions are also a good choice because she is somewhat squishy early game as well. There is no need for mana potions, as running clarity will solve most of the mana problems you will encounter. I then suggest purchasing a sapphire crystal, so you will be closer to a catalyst. Then purchase sorcerers shoes, as magic penetration is very good on Anivia. Once you purchase a catalyst, get some AP and build a blasting wand, followed by a rod of ages. For some pure AP, build a rabadons. This item will make Anivia much more powerful. Late game, I suggest building a Rylai's in order to build some more health, while still adding more AP. The last item purchased can be interchangeable, depending on what the other team has, in terms of having more AD, AP, tanks, etc. If the other team has lots of AD, I suggest you build a thornmail, as this will make you much less vulnerable to their attacks. If the other team does not have lots of AD, or has a balanced team composition, I suggest building a Lich Bane, for some magic resist, mana, and yet even MORE AP. This item also comes with a nice passive :) Obviously any of these items can change, depending on what the other team is doing/building.
Back to Top

Skill Sequence

First, level up Anivia's Q, Flash Frost. This ability is great early game, as it has a lot of range, can slow and stun, and has a nice amount of damage output. This is a great ability for poking. Then level up Anivia's E, Frostbite. Frostbite is a GREAT ability. This ability will do Anivia's most damage output. I suggest using Flash Frost, followed by Frostbite, as Frostbite does much more damage when the enemy has already been slowed by you. I suggest maxing Frostbite by level 10. At level 4, level up Anivia's W, Crystallize. Crystallize forms a wall of ice, that nothing can pass through. This ability is useful for getting out of dangerous situations, or blocking off enemies from critical objectives. I suggest maxing this ability last. Level up Anivia's ultimate, Glacial Storm, at level 6, 11, and 16. This ability has a short cooldown, and creates a circle of ice that slowly damages enemy champions, minions, etc. Use this ability for farming, it is a great tool to use when killing minions! This ability also slows enemies.
