    • Defensive Ball Curl: For a short duration, Rammus goes into a defensive stance resulting in massively increased armor and reflective damage to attackers.

    • Crystallize: Anivia summons a wall of ice that blocks all movement.
    • Frostbite: Anivia blasts her target with a freezing wind. This spell does double damage to anyone affected by an ice effect.
    • Glacial Storm: Anivia creates a swirling vortex of ice and hail, damaging enemies in a large area and slowing their movement and attack speed. This spell is a toggle ability.
