Guide to Countering Amumu as Annie

Tips for Playing as Annie against Amumu

Molten Shield is a good spell to cast to work up to Annie's stun, so sometimes it's beneficial to grab at least 1 rank in it early.

Striking killing blows on minions with Disintegrate enables Annie to farm extremely well early in the game.

Storing a stun for use with her ultimate can turn the tide of a team fight.

Advice to Win Against Amumu

Amumu's Despair makes purchasing primarily Health items a risky proposition.

Avoid bunching up with other allies when Amumu has his ultimate available.

Erratic movement, or hiding behind creep waves can make it difficult for Amumu to instigate a fight with Bandage Toss.
