Guide to Countering Annie as Elise

Tips for Playing as Elise against Annie

Elise's Spider Form and Spider Form abilities do not cost mana and can be prioritized when you are trying to conserve mana.

When in Spider Form, Spiderlings will attack the target that Elise uses Venomous Bite on.

Spider Form is most effective at finishing off enemies with low health; Human Form's Neurotoxin does more damage to healthy foes.

Advice to Win Against Annie

Annie's summoned bear, Tibbers, burns opposing units around himself. Try to keep your distance from him after he's been summoned.

Keep an eye out for a white, swirling power around Annie. It means she's ready to unleash her stun.

Summoner Smite can be used to help take down Tibbers.
