I buy flat magic penetration so i can maximize my damage at start. I also buy cooldown reduction per level because Anivia's cooldowns are a little too high to spam them. I get some mana regen per level too so i won't run out of mana that easily. And last but not least and 2 flat health because anivia starts out very squishy and 1 health per level to stay alive late game.
I first take a point in Flash Frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] for easy harrasing and max it first for the most damage(try to hit them twice to maximize it's damage), it's a slow moving skill shot so you got to aim carefully (remember you can detonate it while it's flying by pressing Q again). At level 2 i take Frostbite [imgsmall=skills/anivia/e.png] for even more damage. Remember it does double damage if he's chilled so it's a really good combo with Flash Frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] and Glacial Storm [imgsmall=skills/anivia/r.png]. (Any ice effect so Ashe's slows and even Frozen Mallet [imgsmall=items/frozen-mallet.png] and Rylais Crystal Scepter [imgsmall=items/rylais-crystal-scepter.png] work) I maximize it second. I take Glacial Storm [imgsmall=skills/anivia/r.png] whenever it's up. If you have to play very defensive you might want to take a point in Crystallize [imgsmall=skills/anivia/w.png] early. Crystallize [imgsmall=skills/anivia/w.png] can be used in 4 different ways. Checking brush/Neutralls(Crystallize [imgsmall=skills/anivia/w.png] gives you sight), blocking paths in the jungle, blocking you're enemies when they want to escape and blocking you're enemies when they are chasing. a good ting to know is that Glacial Storm [imgsmall=skills/anivia/r.png] only can turnt off after 1 sec so it will always cost 150 mana and not 75. (unless you only have 75 mana)
Pro's: 1.Anivia has alot of cc's 2.Most enemies are halfway or fully dead after a full spellcombo. 3.You're very hard to kill early game because of Rebirth [imgsmall=skills/anivia/p.png] 4.Because of Flash Frost's [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] big range you can harras without getting hit, steal Baron or hit enemies under their turret without getting hit 5.Glacial Storm [imgsmall=skills/anivia/r.png] is in teamfights most of the time ignored but can deal huge amounts of damage if they stay there too long. 6. higest burst damage in the game Cons: 1.Anivia is very slow 2.Bad placed Crystallizes [imgsmall=skills/anivia/w.png] can save your enemy 3.Flash Frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] can be easily dodged from a distance 4.Since Anivia can do huge damage it's possible she'll be focused in teamfights. Synchs: 1.Anivia works great with someone who has a stun or snare for an easy Flash Frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] hit. 2. she also works well with Vayne and Poppy because they can Condemn someone into your Crystallize [imgsmall=skills/anivia/w.png](untested)
Anivia [img=champ/anivia.png] Playing against yourself is hard. All tricks that you can do, can do the enemy as well. You have to keep dodging the enemies Flash Frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png]. After dodging the Flash frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] it is on cooldown for 13 sec (at level 1) so you are free to dive on the Anivia because Anivia need here Flash Frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] at level 1-5. Don't use ignite beffore she is an egg [imgsmall=skills/anivia/p.png]. Don't kill Anivia (let here use rebirth [imgsmall=skills/anivia/p.png]) before you are level 6. When you are level 6 wait until she use Flash frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png], dodge it and stun Anivia what Flash Frost[imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png]. Wait until she is an egg and use ignite[imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png]+Glacial Storm[imgsmall=skills/anivia/r.png]+basic attack and you will kill here. Annie [img=champ/annie.png] you can play aggressive against Annie [imgsmall=champ/annie.png]. Whit only 1 good placed Flash forst [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] she lose 25%-33.3% of here life. Thene you only have to do 1 spell combo (+ignite[imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png]) and she is gone. But be carfull. keep out of the range of annie [imgsmall=champ/annie.png]. She also can do great damage and you don't whant to get stunt. your range is a lot bigger so you can keep attacking. When to schoot your Flash Frost[imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png]? Wait until she want to last hit a minion whit here Q. That has a 1 second casting time. So it makes your Flash Frost[imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] a lot harder to dodge even form long range. Ezreal [img=champ/ezreal.png] Stay behind your minions so he can't hit you whit his Q. When he comes closer (to use his W) use immediately Flash Frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] when he is stuned use Frostbite [imgsmall=skills/anivia/e.png] and run back. When your cooldown for Flash Frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] comes backup position yourself again behind your minions and wait untill he comes close again and do the same thing again. When he has about 30%-40% of his life and when you are level 6 do a full spell combo (+ignite [imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png]) than he will die. But alwais be carfull becaus he has an Arcane Shift (blink) Malzahar [img=champ/malzahar.png] You have to play very aggressive and keep doding his silence. Also keep awai for the minion whit Malefic Visions on him. Keep attacking the Malzahar, and don't let him get exp. Al his spells are damage over time so until level 6 you can play very aggressive. Whit your early burst damage you can get him very low. Every time he whant to attack a minion run to him and schoot your Flash Frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] and Frostbite [imgsmall=skills/anivia/e.png]. After level 6 stay more careful. But you still have to play aggressive. That works best. Mordekaiser [img=champ/mordekaiser.png] It will be hard to do a good spell combo agains Mordekaiser when he keep charging his shield but his is nothing without YOUR minions. without your minions he can't charge up his shield. How to attack? when he has his shield up just keep basic attack but don't let him come to close. when he killed all your minions go back to your tower and wait untill your next minion wave. When he is running to your minions to charge his shield again, schoot before he can hit your minions Flash Frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] and Frostbite[imgsmall=skills/anivia/e.png] and keep poking him like this. When he has like 20%-25% HP do a full spell combo (+ignite[imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png]) and you can kill him. [highlight]*soon as I play agains anyone who is not in this list in mid and know how to fight him I will put him/here on this list.[/highlight]
Early game you want to keep using flash frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] and Frostbite [imgsmall=skills/anivia/e.png] to deal a lot of damage and you want to keep your enemy out of exp range. Any time he comes to close schoot your Q. Last hitting is hard whit Anivia because here attack animation is very slow and she don't deal very low damge whit here basic attack. easy targets early game are: 1. Annie [imgsmall=champ/annie.png] 2. Ashe [imgsmall=champ/ashe.png] 3. Brand [imgsmall=champ/brand.png] 4. Karthus [imgsmall=champ/karthus.png] 5. Malzahar [imgsmall=champ/malzahar.png] 6. Master Yi [imgsmall=champ/masteryi.png] 7. Ryze [imgsmall=champ/ryze.png] 8. Teemo [imgsmall=champ/teemo.png] 9. Tristana [imgsmall=champ/tristana.png] 10. Twisted Fate [imgsmall=champ/twistedfate.png] 11. Vayne [imgsmall=champ/vayne.png] 12. Veigar [imgsmall=champ/veigar.png] 13. Vladimir [imgsmall=champ/vladimir.png] 14. Zilean [imgsmall=champ/zilean.png] *This is depending on there playstile but you can easily bring there them down for at least 50% of there HP hit just 1 spell combo. **not complete Hard targets early gmae are: 1. Orianna [imgsmall=champ/orianna.png] 2. Cho'Gath [imgsmall=champ/chogath.png] 3. Gangplank [imgsmall=champ/gangplank.png] 4. Katarina [imgsmall=champ/katarina.png] 5. Taric [imgsmall=champ/taric.png] *This is depending on there playstile **not complete
At mid Game you want to get Golem mutch as you can. You are than an [highlight]AMAZING[/highlight] farming machine whit Flash Frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] and Glacial Strom [imgsmall=skills/anivia/r.png]. At this point you will have your first Rabadons Deathcap [imgsmall=items/rabadons-deathcap.png] so you deal a lot of damage and you will kill all squishy enemies in just 1 spell combo (+ignite [imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png]). So it donn't take long before you finished your 2e Rabadons Deathcap [imgsmall=items/rabadons-deathcap.png] (or zhonyas hourglass [imgsmall=items/zhonyas-hourglass.png] as you have to play more defensive or void staff [imgsmall=items/void-staff.png] as they are stacking magic resistance) But be careful, you are also squishy like hell and your enemies do also have strong items at this point. Your egg [imgsmall=skills/anivia/p.png] doesn't mean that you don't die. Your enemies can destroy it much easier than early game.
You are at this point a bit weaker than early and mid gambe. So this is the point you want to buy defensive item. You still can do a lot of damage but you will die a lot faster. Your egg [imgsmall=skills/anivia/p.png] will almost [highlight]NEVER[/highlight] save you. Good defensive items for Anivia are: banshees veil [imgsmall=items/banshees-veil.png] and frozen heart [imgsmall=items/frozen-heart.png]. This is depending on the enemies. You whant to play in the back of your team. You still want Golem mutch as possible. Because you are an amazing farmer you can finish in most cases you can build yourself until here. But as the game continues you can build your tear of the goddess [imgsmall=items/tear-of-the-goddess.png] in to an archangels staff [imgsmall=items/archangels-staff.png].
In team fights you want to start wit your Q, Flash Frost [imgsmall=skills/anivia/q.png] or your R, Glacial strom [imgsmall=skills/anivia/r.png]. Your Glacial Storm [imgsmall=skills/anivia/r.png] will be ignored but it deal about 100 damge eacht second and it slows the enemies movement speed and attack speed. After that you will take down the most squishy champion first. In most cases you just use Frostbite [imgsmall=skills/anivia/e.png] and you will kill him. After that you have to wait for your spells to come off cooldown. If you are losing the teamfight you can save you or your allies by using Crystallize. Are you winning the teamfight use your Crystallize so the enemies can't escape.
