How is Anivia balanced?
This is not a QQ thread, but rather a serious inquiry into how Anivia is balanced.

It seems to me that a champion that has not only the best burst, the best sustained aoe dps, 2 slows, a stun, and wall, which is a unique version of cc that only she has (besides trundle) is balanced.

As if all that weren't enough, she gets a free guardian angel.

I just don't get how people can think that panth is imbalanced when anivia bursts twice as hard, at range, in an aoe, with a guardian and a wall to protect her.

She has long cool downs.

Slowest champ there is. Long cooldowns. Either hit successfully and deal damage or miss and do nothing until your powers come back. Ult has a huge mana drain also.

Because she's slow as hell, her main source of burst damage is an easy-to-dodge skillshot, she snorts mana like it's ground Tears of the Goddess cut with cocaine, and her "Ultimate CC/Escape" is negated by flash, or any of the other hundred billion dash moves out there. Also, to get off her combo and hit your weak point for massive damage, she has to roam dangerously close.

Also, as an aside she's insanely easy for Blitzcrank to grab (or any other skillshot, for that matter) because she's the size of an aircraft carrier.

Kiting is very underused;3

All about positioning versus Anivia, really. Besides, that so-called built in GA screams KILL ME WHILE I CAN'T DO ****!!!

Her stun is one of the slower attacks in game making it every easy to dodge. On top of that anyone who's played vs a Yi as Anivia will learn that his ult makes your damage combo do half damage. She isn't all that hard to play against if you've play as her, but seeing her only a few time you'll have a hard time vs her.

yea but frost bite alone pretty much sucks so you have to shill the enemy first

the only time you shouldn't be able to dodge anivia's stun is if its point blank or the particles never show and then the anivia has to pay a lot of attention to the particles at your feet for the stun.
