Guide to Countering Kayle as Annie

Tips for Playing as Annie against Kayle

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.

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.

Advice to Win Against Kayle

Kayle is usually a fragile target. If you see her ultimate cast on an ally, switch to attacking her.

Divine Judgment only grants Kayle or her allies immunity to damage. Slows and stuns can still be applied, so trap them if they're being overzealous.

Kayle starts the game as a weaker melee champion. Try to put her behind before she ascends to her ranged form.
