Anivia FAQs

Q: What makes Anivia such a great champion? What are her greatest strengths?

A: Anivia has a lot of strengths. Her greatest strength is probably her passive that allows her to come back to life after a brief delay. To kill her, enemies must spend a lot of extra time and energy on her than other champions. She may not be their primary target. Anivia also has a very powerful AoE DoT ability and the power to deal large bursts of damage. A good Anivia build will help her maximize her AP while providing her enough mana to sustain that damage.

Q: What are Anivia's greatest weaknesses?

A: She is relatively slow and takes a lot of mana to keep her damage up. She is very powerful in the late game where she has large mana pools, but in the early game, she will be very constrained.

Q: What can I do to get better at Anivia in League of Legends?

A: Anivia's poor mobility takes some getting used to. You should practice and learn to work around it. For instance, you will need to use your CC to avoid damage rather than moving out of the way of it yourself.

Additional Anivia Build Insights

LoL Anivia players will find her to be a difficult champ to build out properly. You will see that her build is modified when she is fighting either generic or highly focused team compositions, showing you should not choose the same Anivia build every round of League of Legends

The most critical items to incorporate into your champ's build are: Liandry's Anguish, Seraph's Embrace, and Rabadon's Deathcap. Players who included these pieces in their gear had a better winrate than players who tried for other item builds for Anivia. Similarly, if you are facing a varied enemy team arrangement, you should strongly consider getting her the Domination, and Sorcery runes. In recent games, she won the greatest percentage of her rounds when built with these runes.
