Choose Champion Build:
To start you can go two ways, Sapphire Crystal and 2 Health Potion's, or Boots of Speed and 3 Health Potion's. I find my self starting with the boots rather than the mana because that extra bit of speed is great on Anivia and the mana early is meh.
Okay for the first back item i have two different items, the first build i have a Tear of the Goddess which is later built into Archangel's Staff which offer great mana regeneration, mana pool, and ability power, or you can buy Chalice of Harmony which will be built into Athene's Unholy Grail which offers mana regeneration per mana missing, ability power, and cooldown reduction and magic resistance which can be good against a hard ap lane.
Next you should work towards a Rod of Ages, this one is pretty standard for squishy champions like Anivia. It offers health, health per minute, mana, mana per minute, ability power, and ability power per minute not to mention that every time you level you get an amazing regeneration buff.
After Rod of Ages you will want to get your Sorcerer's Shoes for the increased speed and magic penetration.
Next up is the famous Rabadon's Deathcap for the crazy increase on ability power!
After the DCAP, as i call it, it is time to finish that first half-item you bought, if you went Tear of the Goddess i find that at this point you should have quite a bit of stacks (again this might be due to my love of spamming), but if you want to wait a while longer then that is okay too.
Next up we have Zhonya's Hourglass a pretty much must have on Anivia for some awesome armor, ability power and invincible buff.
Now for our last item i used to have Abyssal Mask for some extra magic resistance but since it was nerfed i switched to Void Staff for the magic penetration.
As a side item, if you find yourself needed some defense try getting a Guardian Angel, for some magic resistance, armor and a rebirth, that's right Anivia double rebirth FTW!
Flash is a must on most champions and Anivia is no exception! That jump can be both life saving and game winning!
October 4, 2012-Added another build giving more option on what to build and updated the chapters. Not that this took WAY long since my keyboard is slowly dying and i have to copy and paste every single "u" and sometimes if the time is bad the "o" as well -_-.
