Well look, everyone has their own playstyle, and that's what I probably should change in this. Add different skill list setups and such.
As for me, I've tried the suggested method you've made AFKush, and it just does not work for me. It doesnt feel comfortable in how I play at all, and I feel like I'm doing too little damage early game. That's it plain and simple. The skill list I have up there I've been using since she was first released in beta and I've never seen a need to change that method. As I said, to each his own, what works best for me doesnt have to be the same as your best.
So yes, please keep it civil guys.
I'm new to the game and frankly a horrible player (huge feeder) though I'm still enjoying the game greatly. Although you three seem to have different opinions and styles of play I have enjoyed hearing the options I have. The guide that Remni put forth isn't going to cover every aspect of the character in a game that is very complicated but for someone like me who is at the moment out of his depths, it gives me some where to start.
Thanks for all your help
Interesting. Remni is by the way the best Anivia player i know for all those reading his guide.
I have some questions for you
Where you use frozen mallet in your tank build would Rylai's Scepter work the same but add AP? Im assuming not or you would have already tested this.
2nd is more of a sugestion in your mana build add a Liche Bane to the build maybe as a last item. This item will give you 80AP with 350mana both stats are great for your build but also it adds 32 magic resist wich will help survivability. and 7% movement speed which will combat Anivia's movement speed problems you mentioned earlier. The kicker is with all the other senergy this adds to your build the passive will do some great damage with your AP on your next auto attack allowing for even more burst.
Good work on your guide
Actually I have a new setup I've been running as of late, completely ignoring Archangel Staff. I'll throw it up there later, but currently I got Ruby or Sapphire Crystal, then Sorc Boots, then Catalyst to Rod of Ages. After I get Tear of the Goddess and then Void Staff. Void Staff's 40% magic pen has proven for be incredibly effective for Anivia. I've been able to take a tanked out Cho'gath with 3.5-4k hp down to 50% hp with just a Flash Frost+Frostbite+Storm combo late game thanks to it. After the Void Staff, depending on how the game is going, I'll either go Frozen Mallet, Veil or finish off the Archangel's.
