Hey guys, this is SkiLLY bringing you yet another guide. This guide is going to be about Annie!! With the introduction of the Panda Annie skin and no new updated season 3 guides on her, I think making this guide will be beneficial to you fellow summoners. Now let us begin. [highlight]PROS[/highlight] - Huge burst damage once level 6 - An ability that grants mana back on a kill which can be abused to get creep kills - Naturally has low cooldowns - Very strong AOE - Has a passive stun every 5th spell - Longest ranged auto attack known to man - Has a great offensive as well as defensive tool kit [highlight]CONS[/highlight] - Needs to use 4 spells in order for her next spell to stun - Gets shut down by CC - Ultimate is buggy sometimes or can be easily flashed ( But can be worked around that )

[imgext=http://i46.tinypic.com/kcxnpj.png] My rune setup for Annie is to merge is with the benefits of RoA to make a super RoA. I think this is the best rune setup for a good sustain, tanky, high damage caster. [highlight]MARKS[/highlight] : x9 Magic Pen ( Pretty straight forward, to deal as much damage as possible) [highlight]SEALS[/highlight] : x9 HP per lvl ( Combined together with your masteries and RoA, you will be a tanky ap caster) [highlight]GLYPHS[/highlight] : x9 AP per lvl ( Combined together with your masteries and RoA, you will be a tanky ap caster) [highlight]QUINTS[/highlight] : x3 Flat Ability Power ( Extra AP throughout the whole game is nice )

[title][img=skills/annie/p.png] Passive: Pyromania[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Every 5th spell, your next offensive ability will trigger a stun. A really neat passive that fits Annie`s playstyle. [title][img=skills/annie/q.png] Q: Disintegrate[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Annie`s bread and butter ability. It is a single target nuke, with a bonus. If it lands a killing blow on anything, it refunds 100% of the mana used. Great tool for last hitting with. [title][img=skills/annie/w.png] W: Incinerate[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] A small but powerful AOE nuke that synergizes well with Tibber`s AOE. [title][img=skills/annie/e.png] E: Molten Shield[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] A very useful defensive shield that grants armour, and magic resist and does aoe damage. Really useful in the later stages of the game and will make Annie that much more durable. [title][img=skills/annie/r.png] R: Summon Tibbers[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Annie`s Trump Card. Huge AOE nuke burst. Combined with Q and W and ignite, can literally drop an opponent from 100 to 0. Tibber`s can also be controlled after being used by Alt+clicking.

MAX R MAX Q MAX W MAX E Pretty straight forward, no need for an explanation for this one.

STARTING ITEMS [img=items/boots-of-speed.png] [img=items/health-potion3.png] CORE ITEM: [img=items/rod-of-ages.png] MIDGAME ITEMS [img=items/sorcerers-shoes.png] [img=items/rod-of-ages.png] [img=items/rabadons-deathcap.png] LATEGAME ITEMS [img=items/sorcerers-shoes.png][img=items/rod-of-ages.png][img=items/rabadons-deathcap.png][img=items/void-staff.png][img=items/zhonyas-hourglass.png][img=items/liandrys-torment.png] [highlight]SITUATIONAL ITEM CHOICES[/highlight] - Enemy stacking Health? [img=items/liandrys-torment.png] - Raping the enemy? [img=items/mejais-soulstealer.png] - Enemy has heavy AP damage? [img=items/abyssal-scepter.png] - Getting harassed and need sustain? [img=items/will-of-the-ancients.png] - Enemy is heavy on AD damage? [img=items/zhonyas-hourglass.png]

Start of with boots and 3 health potions and go mid. If you guys coordinated to invade at level 1. Stay at fountain and spam your W until your stun is up, then catch up with your team. If not just go to mid. Last hitting should be really easy as Annie. Your Q can be used to last hit since it refunds 100% of the mana cost if it gets the killing blow. Just keep on farming with it and also a nice way to harass is to last hit with your Q until your stun is up then Q your enemy and land a basic auto attack and walk away. Your enemy wont be able to trade back and it will give you health advantage. Try and farm up for a catalyst. It's okay if you can't farm 1325g on your first back. Just go back and buy a health crystal, then keep on continuing for your catalyst.

Mid game is when you start doing some damage. Your catalyst will give you good sustain as it's passive regenerates your health and mana when you level up. This means you can harass more and stay in lane more. At level 6 you can ask for a gank and to help you nuke down an opponent. Get your stun up and either land a Q or flash and Q or if your comfortable, R. With the help of your jungle, it should be a 100% kill. Get blue whenever you can, don't forget to take wraiths if your jungler allows it. You can also roam since your stun is only a few spells away. Your toolkit is huge on winning teamfights as you have huge AOE nuke damage with your R and W as well as a single target nuke. In teamfights you should be able to at least nuke or get an enemy really low for your teammate to finish them off.

Late game is where Annie becomes really scary. She starts getting high amounts of AP and suddenly she can nuke your ADC from 100 to 0. It's even better if their enemy ADC does not have cleanse because it ensures that you can 1 combo them to death unless they get huge amount of MR, in most cases they don't. Teamfights should be in your favour because of your toolkit. Just try and get good positioning on your Ult and don't tunnel vision because it could to lead to your death. Annie isn't really squishy, especially with the item build, runes, and masteries that i've set up for you so even if you don't have perfect positioning, you'll be fine ;)
