Guide to Countering Lux as Annie

Tips for Playing as Annie against Lux

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 Lux

When retreating with low health, be prepared to dodge Lux's Final Spark, a red targeting beam fires prior to the main beam, so try to move to the side if possible.

Lux has powerful zone control abilities. Try to spread out and attack from different directions so she cannot lock down a specific area.
