Back to Top


look at the masteries build above plz
i really like the CD combo couse U have like 10% base CD
Back to Top

Items (1)

items are a bit complicated but U can see them above. core are: Rod Of ages (also known as RoA), rabadons deathcap, zhonyas hourglass Ionian boots of lucidity(akward?, u get frosbite on a 3 sec CD so dont take any other boots plz exsept sorcerers shoes). U can also take abyssal scepter over archangels staff.and morrelos evil tome for zhonyas.
health and mana or both item Rod of Ages, Archangel's Staff, Banshees veil
a good pair of boots ionian booys of lucidity, Sorcerer's Shoes
a meg. pen item Void Staff
U could take the Archangels staff if U have mana problems, but if you are on summoners rift just take some blue buffs and you will be ok or u just use Clarity

if U face a AD carrie or get focused Zhonya's Hourglass
if enemy team stacks magic ressist Void Staff
if you have mana problems Archangel's Staff
simply to weak to stay in combat 2 Rod of Ages
if you are facing hard CC team Moonflair Spellblade
if you are facing heavy AP team Abyssal Mask
if u are going are very succsesful Mejai's Soulstealer
if you need mana regen Archangel's Staff or Morello's Evil Tome i dont rec. this

after Rod of Ages U will get ONLY some survivability AND mana BUT no TOO much AP. U should rush to Needlessly Large Rod boecouse U will get KILLS!!!!

if U get the CD masteries and Ionian Boots of Lucidity AND Morello's Evil Tome U will get a 40% CD reduction it will effect U greatly. it is a great item, tho. i dont rec this 25% CD is enough

anivia has a great set of skills. especially her passive. read more about it below.

Perfect passive for a mage. as i said read more about it below

Flash Frost
preety nice q. it is her basic ability. U pre-six its the only connector to Frostbite so use it wisely: try to aim as far possible of the wall and at the same time at the champion. get it? good for canceling Absolute Zero and Death Lotus

Anivia's baest defense ability. U can secure kills or save allies or just move youre opponent away
I had a post that U should max out q early before w. its ok to do that but REMEMBER:
U land an easier q if U have a bigger wall (if he flashes, he just wastes flash)
block ppl in youre ulti ;P
thats why U should max out w before q, but still keep them !tightly close!

main damaging ability. goes well with Flash Frost and Glacial Storm it ize size =64does double damge then.

Glacial Storm
biggest possibilities of an abilty: 1 damage
2 adds a chill. double damage for Frostbite
3 slows
4 slows enemys AS...

so this is how U max it (i learned how to do this ;P)=
Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
so basically:
Frostbite > Flash Frost > CrystallizeAnd max ulti whenever U can.

Smartcasting(READ READ READ!)

This is THE most IMPORTANT thing of a good anivia player. it allows you to spam youre skills even quicker than the reflexes(?) i recommand trying this out at bots 1st so you will not **** youre q or w. but becarefull this is big power hard to handle. try to fill youre skills but always set up back up shortcuts (i have y,x,c,v if i ame not sure for the range) U set up smartcasting in esc>options>bind keys (not sure have to check) and search for smartcasting.

when and why and how to harrass with anivia

ok U should ALWAYS take mid lane, the build is designed for a mid lane. youre main priority as anivia is to get more creeps then youre opponent. U do that with youre harrasss ing combo, wich is flash frost (do double damage with stun) and frostbite (it does double damage if the target is chilled). when U get ulti try to open with it (spam youre galcial storm on him , frostbite, flash frost and if u are sure u will get the kill wall him in youre ulti, no1 will survive it if u do it properly)why to harrass is becouse u neend to get to lvl 6 as fast as possible. when is ALWAYS. only if youre team said "ss".

Countering mid champions.

this is the section i will woork on over time.
hide behind minions, quick boots, U can win him with: Cleanse or Quicksilver Sash i ame not sure for quick silver, Banshee's Veil
How to kill that son of a ******? after he uses a skill, go in, w, look where he goes, q ,e , r than move into him zig zag, use e again, drop ignite(if U have). go to egg form and,Gloriusly reborn!

Vladimir COUNTERS:
stay at long range, avoid using e when he is non-frosted (he will heal that dmg). win him with (same as brand)
How to kill that son of a ******?
use r before q couse he can dodge it with pool. becarefull of his pool. try walk to him, w8 for pool use r+e+q+w+e. HE CANT GO THGROUGH YOURE WALL WHILE SAFE IN HIS POOL!!!!!
harras onlz with R+E combo or R+E+Q+W+E=death if he tags U with ulti dont worry, U have youre passive.

* srry if U play this char. it will inspire the rage in newbies ^^

How To farm

when U are lvl 2/3 try last hitting creeps with AA, if u toke clarity then when its availble dont be afraid to run out of mana. USE YOURE FROSTBITE for last hit. at lvl 6 just put glacial storm (if U dont have clarity in CD) on the creeps w8 for the mage creeps (the last ones with hats) to die, if the battle creeps are on 1 hit left then just delay with canceling youre urli and VOILA the creeps go away and U gain the money and advantage of the lane. to make this a bit more complicated: 1 siege minion= 30 gold
1 Frostbite lvl 2 = 60 mana x 10 = 600 anivia's base mana pool at lvl 3= 360, take all youre mana for 30 creeps + clarity and U have 300 gold. ofcourse U will be regaining mana all the time so... U can trz that on melee minion:
1 minion= 25 (+ 0.5 / 3 min) gold.
for frostbite it is the same as at the siege minion.
and the caster minion=16 (+1 / 3 min) gold.

When and why use youre egg/wards/elixir of briliance

try getting youre team FB with youre super passive. Command them to go to mid bushes and when the creeps come (try to bait him earlie) U stun or wall its youre joice (i use stun) and youre team mates come to get FB.

for words try getting 1 or 2 in the bush where they will come (if u kill youre lane enemy twice they will come from the lane where theire tower is not in danger).

Now elixir of briliance. this is my favourite item. i didnt add it to the build becouse some time U dont lane well and u dont have enough money to get the core build. so when U see that youre enemy is playing a bit aggresive buy the elixir and go kill him. it gives u ALOT of AP for 250 gold. try battling in youre creep wave so if U revert to the egg the creeps will just kill him and he will go like >I HATE THAT EGG<.

Team Work

Ok so her I will show u some things that U shpuld always do in a team fight.
first of all ill show u if they attck youre team first. what should u do: 1 DONT PANICK
2 put youre glacial at youre team (iif they have melee carrys or on theyr ranged carrys) so the melee champs will get theyr attck speed reduced. 3. separate the attackers from youre team mates
4.kill the low life targets
If U attack the enemy team: 1. Separate their entire team!!!!!!
2. kill the low life targets
3. Try to put youre ulti on their entire team
4. if u get focuesd activate Zhonyas Hour Glass

Summoner Spells

i take clarity and teleport. i take those spells for lane staying power, ofcourse at 3v3, u can also take a more agressive spells flash and ignite. but never take any others like fortify or clairvorance those are not mage spells. The best choices are: Teleport more creeps!
Ignite i hate it when ppl get away with 50 hp
Flash goes well with youre q
Clarity bye bye mana problems in earlly game
Ghost anivia is really slow so this kind of fixes it.

Why to take clarity and not FLASH?!

i got some comments about clarity. i take clarity becouse u can HARASS and FARM(with youre e) + when you are out of mana and clarity has 20 sec u can play a bit more defensive early game and late game i found myself at 50% mana ad i use clariity and voila 80%mana just enough for my precius ultimate combo. i agree that flash can save youre life but U have youre passive or just wall youre self out of a fight.
lets say U have wall lvl 5 and U are doing golems and at very low hp a melee champ comes with NO jump ability and U justt wall yourself in a corner and back away from the wall. if U took flash U could just flash yourself out andd waste a flash. but when U are with the golem STOP ATACKING HIM! couse u have youre passive and/or clarity U just eggform and (or just let the golem kill U)the wall melts U have 2-4 seconds to be >gloruiusly< reobrn and use clarity youre combo and kill that ******! a video will come shortly

Taking clarity is for new players; having more mana at the beggining is better for U to play her.^^
