Annie is too strong =(
Anyways, anyone tried to play her support yet? I'd like to know. I've played support Tristana and its so amazing, get to wipe faces and protect carries and apply healing reduction!

so support Annie...

How to beat her: Build magic resist and health. If you are having trouble with her in lane, I recommend you get an early Giant's Belt or Catalyst Protector. Due to the fact that health helps you stay alive from her, building Rylai's Crystal Scepter or Rod of Ages is extremely beneficial to you. Obviously magic resist counters her. If you can live through her burst, she is in dead water. If she is raping you like a professional child molester, then build Force of Nature to get that magic resist and for that health regeneration to keep you in lane. Grabbing an early Hextech Revolver will be helpful to keep you in lane more, but eventually you will have to recall. If you are in ranked and are going against an Annie, take Teleport and Flash. Teleport so you can stay in lane more and recall to get items and then pop back up in lane to rape her and/or farm. Flash for the utility it brings. Due to the fact that you can blink over walls, it will help you escape Summon: Tibbers and Disintegrate's burst.

How to play her: I recommend you max Disintegrate first because it lowers the cooldown and will keep you in lane. I also recommend that you max that first because it teaches you to last hit and to learn how to farm. Like Kennen, Annie is one of those champs that you can farm with a breeze. If you are sucking really bad, stack some Doran's Rings so you can keep in lane, and benefit from the health it gives. After you max Disintegrate, max Incinerate next so you can farm with that. Make sure to take an early point in Molten Shield so you can survive some of the ganks that they throw at you. When playing as Annie, try to last hit minions with Disintegrate so you can keep at full mana and still charge up Pyromania. After Pyromania is charged, hit your enemy with a Disintegrate and an Incinerate then back off to avoid any damage. You will be dishing out a lot of damage with that harass combo, so keep it up to force them to recall. If they are building magic resist, which I am sure they will, make sure to take a mid-late game Void Staff so you can rip through them like they had no magic resist.

About support Annie: Since you bring in multiple stuns, it is fairly viable for your team, but I do not recommend it for ranked games. Build up gold per 10 items and then build up reverie so you can help your team. Make sure to grab aura items to help your team. Building Abyssal Mask will benefit your AP carry a lot, especially if your enemies are building up magic resist. Will of the Ancients will benefit them as well, especially if you and your teammates are having trouble surviving team fights. Since it gives you bonus AP, it will help you as well. Since you bring in multiple stuns, it is really helpful to support someone in bottom lane. For example, if you are laning with Caitlyn lets say that. You charge up Pyromania so you can stun your enemy. If your enemy is stupid enough to facecheck, then punish them for that by stunning them with Summon: Tibbers, but make sure to have your AD carry get the kill because it is more viable for them to get the kill then for you to get it. When you are supporting her, make sure to buy those aura items. If your team is still struggling to survive in team fights, take a Aegis of the Legion so you guys can survive and win the game.

HOPE I HELPED!

^don't take teleport, lol

She isn't OP, but she is really strong. Just don't try to engage her when you know she has her ult and/or stun up, you can see when she has stun up since she will have a white circle around her.

When she doesn't have her stun, rape her face off and get jungler ganks.

And she is a recommended champ for a reason, lol. If you tried her out you'd be able to play her well your first or second game. It helps smartcasting your spells, just last hit with Q to get stun charges up and then when you have your stun up, just click R W Q on them and they die.

:o

In ranked I am sure that their Annie is better. I am sure she knows you will back off when she has the stun up, so she will wait for you to overextend and then rape you. She can charge up that stun fairly fast with Disintegrate so.. yeah.

That doesn't really matter...the point is she will have her stun up at times and at time she won't, and the times she doesn't is when you either be offensive of zone her if she backs off.

She will get the stun charged up pretty fast because the cooldown on Incinerate is insane. The point is, don't overextend and get your jungler to gank so you guys can rape her..

Push her lane to force her to waste her stun, then gank her. She has no escape mechanism aside from her stun. Also, she can't really do **** to longer range opponents with good harass. At least not without going all in with Flash. She's fairly easy to play in all honesty, just charge up a stun and hit every button on your keyboard.

For a long time I've said Annie is ****, but I'm actually starting to think she may make a comeback soon along with Veigar. She certainly isn't OP though.

She can't do anything to Ahri except rape her. I am sure she brought Flash.. if she hasn't then she is just bad. I must ask, are you and MissMaw together??
