DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Annie Middle guide

/!\ Due to the latest patch this article is now outdated and needs a rework /!\

This is a guide for a character in League of Legends.


Annie the Dark Child.

Annie is an AP middle and a niche Support.

Pros/Cons

Pros

  • Great burst.
  • Native sustain.

Cons

  • Squishy.
  • No escape mechanism.
  • Short Range on 2 spells.

Summoner spells

  • Flash: Flash on annie is very good as you may want to go out the battle quickly after casting your short range spells.
  • Ignite: The usual pick as an AP it will help you finish guys without chasing them as don't have the kit to do so.

Skills

  • Pyromania (Passive): Every 4 spells Annie casts, Her next spell will stun the target(s) for a durations as follows: (1.25/1.5/1.75 seconds) on levels (1/6/11).

Simply one of the best passives in the game. You always want this one up when you engage.
EDIT: nerfed on patch 4.1 01/14/2014 from 1.75 seconds for every levels to 1.25/1.5/1.75 seconds at levels 1/6/11.

  • Disintegrate (Q): Annie throws a fireball at target enemy dealing magic damages as follows: (80/115/150/185/220 +80% AP). If Disintegrate last-hits the target, its cooldown is halved. Range: 625. Cooldown: 4. Cost: (60/65/70/75/80) mana.

When there is so much heroes who struggle for mana this skill does all in one. You just have to finish the creep to refill its mana cost. The cooldown is low too. Easy mode.

  • Incinerate (W): Annie blasts the area in a cone in front of her dealing AOE magic damages as follows: (70/115/160/205/250 +85% AP). Range 625 .Cooldown: 8. Cost: (70/80/90/100/110) mana.

Simple Aoe damage. The range isn't so great and I always feel like there is a little delay when I cast it. So you will have to be close to the target(s).

  • Molten Shield (E): Annie shields herself for 5 seconds granting her armor and magic resist as follows: (20/30/40/50/60 +30% armor and mr). The shield also deals magic damages per second around it as follows: (20/30/340/50/60/+20 AP). Cooldown: 10. Cost: 20 mana.

Your utility skill. Annie is here since the begining of League of Legends and she was always been considered as a tier 1 AP. That's why I havn't much to say about her kit; it his simple and efficient. Cast this one alongside W when you need your passive up.

  • Summon: Tibbers (R) (Ultimate): Annie calls Tibbers to the rescue at target location dealing magic damages on landing as follows: (175/300/425 +80% AP). For the next 45 seconds you will control tibbers. Tibbers will deal Magic damages around him as follows: (35+20% AP per second) Tibbers has a health bar as follows: (1200/2100/3000). An auto attack damages as follows: (80/105/130). An armor and magic resisance as follows: (30/50/70). Range: 600. Cooldown: (120/100/80 seconds). Cost: 100 mana.

There is the special thing about her kit. Tibbers is among the few pets you can summon in League of legends. To control it you press ALT (you don't release). Otherwise tibbers will follow you and attack the target you fight. Tibbers deals initial damage when he appears then he will irridiate over time dealing magic damages. Notice that the range is even shorter than W. You want to cast it right in the middle of the teamfight with your passive on it to stun everyone.

Skill Sequence

01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
Q x x x x x
W x x x x x
E x x x x x
R x x x

You max Q first then W for the burst. E is last.

Masteries

  • On the offensive tree you pick everything AP related. Annie is all about bursting.
  • On the utility tree you are looking for Runic affinity as usual.

Runes

  • 9X Magic penetration (marks).
  • 9X mana regen per level (seals). You can even take armor reduction of more AP.
  • 9X Flat AP (glyphs). More AP. You can tweak with AP per level or resist magic per level.
  • 3X Flat AP (Quintessences). For more burst.

Build

You start with a Doran's ring + 2 pots. Then you will buy shoes and you can build Rabadon's Deathcap right away. You don't have to focus on CDR on Annie. Try to build to take annie squishy down with a R+A+W combo that's all. You can buil then a Rod of Ages a bit of mana and health will help when the laning phase is over. Then a Rylai's Crystal scepter. Your core is : Sorceres Shoes + Rabadon's DeathCap + Rod of Ages/Rylai's Crystal Scepter. Luxury items are : Void Staff anf Zhonya's Hourglass. An alternative item is Deathfire Grasp as you will be pretty often at close range.

Gameplay mid

Last hit with your auto attacks on Q. It's super easy to farm middle with Annie early. If you see an opportunity charge you stun, burst then back. Don't forget to ward you are still super squishy and vulnerable to ganks. If you are caught in a well timed gank you will have difficulties to escape.
