In this League of Legends: Wild Rift Annie guide you'll find everything you need to know about the champion, from her skills and how to allocate them to her build, skill combo, and runes. Here is what you will find in the Annie guide below:
Next up on our WIld Rift champions, we are going to cover Annie, the Dark Child. She is a powerful mage, who can be played both as a support and a mid laner. Annie's kit is quite a unique one, in the sense that she can deal a lot of damage and survive quite well in most situations.
Her most signature feature would probably be her teddy bear, Tibbers. Annie is fairly easy to play, but unlike in League of Legends, in Wild Rift, her Skill 1 is a targeted ability. Also, she doesn't need a target to cast it, and she can use it to charge up her passive anytime.
League of Legends: Wild Rift Annie's skillsPyromania (Passive)
After casting 4 spells, Annie's next offensive spell will stun the target.Disintegrate (Skill 1)
Annie hurls a Mana infused fireball, dealing damage in a small area and refunding the Mana cost and half its cooldown if it destroys the target.Incinerate (Skill 2)
Annie casts a blazing cone of fire, dealing damage to all enemies in the area.Molten Shield (Skill 3)
Annie shields Tibbers or an allied champion, absorbing damage. Enemies who attack the shield take damage.Summon: Tibbers (Skill 4 / Ultimate)
Annie wills her bear Tibbers to life, dealing damage to units in the area. Tibbers can attack and also burns enemies that stand near him.
How to combo as AnnieDepending on the situation, Annie can have quite a few combos. Most of them have a high burst of damage, which makes her a great engage support. As a mid laner, she can also engage but will have slightly less survivability. However, she will more than make up for it with the increased amounts of damage she will do. - Stack up the passive -> Flash -> Skill 4 (ultimate) -> Skill 1 -> Skill 2
This is one of the most powerful engages she has. With a fully stacked passive and by casting her ultimate, she will have AoE stun. Basically, if she is full AP build, she will most likely be able to one-shot any squishy champion with this combo.- Stack up the passive -> Skill 1 -> Skill 4 (ultimate) -> Skill 1
This combo is great for stunning and damaging one enemy since her Skill 1 is a single target ability.- Stack up the passive -> Skill 2 -> Skill 1 (pre-level 5) or Stack up the passive -> Flash -> Skill 2 -> Skill 1
Before obtaining the ultimate, Annie can also pull off an engage with her kit, but she will have to follow it up by Ignite and probably another teammate for additional damage.Additional Annie tips:
- Use your Skill 3 on yourself to cast it on Tibbers as well, once he's summoned.
- Use your Skill 3 on allies, to boost their movement speed or mitigate some damage.
