Annie Pro Tip

Here is an example of learning something new everyday. Yesterday I played a game with my buddy TakashiX and he taught me something amazing about Annie...

Generally in high tier games, players will engage in a 5v5 battle in the first 2 minutes of the game to take control of rune buffs or the dragon for global exp & gold. If you have an annie in your line-up anyways, a clutch spell to get is Incinerate.

Incinerate - Annie casts a blazing cone of fire, dealing damage to all targets in the area.
Annie casts a cone of fire dealing 85 / 145 / 205 / 265 / 325 (+1 per ability power) magic damage to all enemy targets in the area.
Cooldown 8 seconds Cost 80 / 100 / 120 / 140 / 160 Mana Range 625

Pyromania - Every 5 spell casts, Annie's next spell will stun the target for 1.75 seconds.

Prior to engaging in a team fight, cast incinerate 4 times at your well to charge up your "Pyromania." Doing so will make your next spell do an Area of Effect (AOE) stunning your enemy for 1.75 seconds. We did this in our scrim yesterday and smashed 3 champions in the first 2 minutes of the game.


  1. Dont you need enough mana to cast 5 spells then stun?

  2. You charge this up while at the fountain...that way you can avoid wasting the mana to cast it 5 times and it will be ready to go as soon as you make your way to the forest
