Also, MR typically has higher numbers compared to the armors for the same reason of bursts and AP's.

For example: Null-magic mantle has 24 MR while cloth armor has 18 armor. Even though they have the same armor to gold ratio, the magic resistance is higher in a lot of the items.

Except on higher tier items MR is lacking as Force of Nature provides the highest MR(+76) while armor has thornmail(+100), and Frozenheart(+99).

Actually, last I knew her range matched Caitlyn when they nerfed Cait's range. Did they put her back at 650?

But yeah, Annie has a 625 range. Pretty dangerous.


Caitlyn has 650 range currently.

Because autoattacks exist.


This.

Autoattack melee champs have vastly different mechanics. It has to do with the fact that magic damage is normally dealt from behind the lines where the casting champs don't get hit (this is the strategic way anyway), and the melee's are up front dealing their damage with no cooldowns, no cost.
