is Zhonaiy's Hourglass is more important rather than death cap? From my perspective, i would have tried to build death cap, lindey's torment and magic penetration. hour glass would have built depends on the situation for example if I face zed against me in mid.

How should you choose between Dark Harvest or Unsealed Spellbook? Is one for a more aggressive style? (i have never played Annie before.)

What is your opinion with Inspiration being used as 'secondary runes' for Annie's Electrocute build (using Perfect Timing and Future's Market) and having two +9 Adaptive (5.4 AD or 9 AP) rune bonuses and a +6 armour rune bonus, instead of using secondary Sorcery runes and a +1-10% CDR (lvls 1-18) and +15-90 HP (lvls 1-18) rune bonus respectively?

Hi, I'm a big fan of and have had much success using 'Inspiration' in the past. I see nothing wrong with your choices here but personally am not fan of futures market and to be honest I think the best option right now is still 'Sorcery' as the secondary runes.

If I wasn't taking (CDR +1-10%) which I doubt most people do, I would choose:
• +9 Adaptive force
• +9 Adaptive force
• +8 MR (Against burst AP champ or high AP team) / +6 Armour (Against AD champ) / +15-90 HP (Go to choice)

Thanks for the guide. It really helped me to get into Annie and how to use specific combos especially with Tibbers. My question is that if Annie relies heavily on flash, why shouldn't I run hexflash? This is coming from a blitzcrank main who almost always uses the rune. I just purchased Ivern and is Daisy like Tibbers, or do they have different tech and moves? Thanks for the Annie guide and I will contiune to show my support on any guides to come!

Also, is nimbus cloak a good rune to take on annie? I have found success with it personally but would like to hear your take on it.

If you are are finding decent success with Nimbus Cloak, go for it. Remember, this is simply a 'guide' and you should definitely use what works for you. It definitely has the possibility to help you get out of harms way if you have gone a bit deep with your ultimate or aid you to chase down that last AA or (Q) for the kill. It's a sensible choice if you are finding success :)

Love the guide, just one thing. Under what circumstances is it beneficial to purchase a seraph's? It's under situational items but not explained as far as i can tell. Thanks :)

Hey, sorry about the delay getting back to you. I have removed Seraph's Embrace from the guide. Had been meaning to remove it a while ago and forgot about it. Thanks.

Annie is not mana hungry, doesn't scale from mana and is quiet slow to stack Seraph's Embrace. She needs to have her burst pretty early and Rod of Ages / Luden's Echo are better choices.

Great guide, has really helped me win games on Annie. However, one question to ask is how can you win lane vs Jayce? I haven’t found a way to our trade him early game, and he can push out the minion wave before I make it back to lane.

FalleN3 (8) | September 24, 2018 10:12am
Hey, sorry about the delayed reply - I was away for some time recently. Jayce is a mobile champion that has a very strong early/mid game. Add this to the fact that he has decent wave clear and poke and you can be in for an annoying early game as Annie. He does have fairly long cooldowns though and is fairly mana hungry so if he spams spells he will be out of mana quickly. It's easy for him to pick up Mercury's Treads and Hexdrinker early against you so keep that in mind. Play safe, get boots early and try to dodge his poke. Call for jungle help when you're in a position to all-in. Look for roams and preasure elsewhere on the map if need be. Quiet often in non favoured lanes like this I watch the map like a hawk for opportunities elsewhere. Falling a few CS behind is not the end of the world, but try your best to not feed him.

If he tries to use hammer to CS, use some poke on him (Q+AA)

What's your thought on Annie vs. Morgana? As Morgana is a less selfish version of lux(imo), would annie do better?

FalleN3 (8) | July 3, 2018 7:36am
Hey, I have just added Morgana to the match-ups there now.

"This is a skill matchup. If you are playing against a decent Morgana then this match-up can be tricky to deal with. As with champions that have skill shots you will need to do your best to dodge her Q as this can root you for quiet some time, even a level 1. You need to use your flash wisely against Morganna and never waste it without a reward because it you can be a sitting duck for her to all in you (If she notices you are not ready to stun her she can simply shield herself, walk up to you and ulti and when you are stunned, she can Q you and W and ignite assuming she has it). You also have the ability to burst her down assuming you can get the correct engage on her, usually flashing onto her and using full combo before she gets a chance to spell shield herself."


Thanks for the comment and better luck to you avoiding those Q's than I have :)
