FAQs About Annie

What makes Annie a good beginner champion?

Annie is simple to learn because she has just one mechanic: when your stun is up, blow all of your abilities at the same time on an enemy. Additionally, once summoned, Tibbers can help you deal a lot of extra damage without even trying :p. Annie is considered by many to be the easiest champion to learn how to play in League of Legends, yet she is still powerful and fun to play!

What is one of Annie's greatest strengths?

Her stun has a large area-of-effect and no cast delay. She can stop just about any enemy in their tracks, and if they are reduced in health, she will likely delete them too.

What is one of Annie's weaknesses that I should be aware of?

Her spells have a relatively short range. In one-on-one fights, this is rarely an issue; she deals so much damage and can back away while her target is stunned. However, if she's facing many enemies, she's left open too close to her enemies with all of her abilities on cooldown. In teamfights, she won't last long without support.
