Mages with good auto-attack animations?

Like others have said, Ahri, Brand and Ziggs have excellent ones.

Lux is on-off. It's a good AA, but becaause of how it animates, if you click elsewhere too early, it animation cancels. You can cancel on a lot of champs (namely Vayne), but as an AP mid, Lux gets that problem a lot.

Lux has her passive though, which makes last-hitting much easier.

Its not only with mages though. I played MF as my main AD carry for a while. She probably has one of the easiest last hit animations in the game. If you're used to last-hitting on MF, trying to last hit on Sivir becomes alot harder.

Its easier with mages though. Even though Anivia/Karthus have slow autoattaks, they can still farm with their abilites.

I"m surprised no one mentioned Fid. Although Fid has the worst AA animation, but he is still viable for AD/crit build with his 2 cc skill.

I think Ziggs animation is fantastic. Also its so similar to his bomb toss animation its easy to be unpredictable when harrasing with it. I love me some Ziggs


This.

Zigg's animation is smooth and perfect. I have no idea why they made his animation so much better then previous mage heroes. In my opinion the scale goes from Fiddle all the way at the bottom to Ziggs at the very top. Heimerdinger's animation is pretty bad also.

As mentioned, Ziggs has a good animation. I also like Xerath's animation and find last hitting with him very easy.

Anivia, if your looking for smooth perfect attack animations, go anivia

Actually I would contest that Fid has the worst animation. He's so much easier to cs with than Vlad. (Ryze is a pain as well, but less so.)

I'm so used to slow animations that I frequently hit too fast with Ziggs and miss CS that way.

Just something to be aware of. I think that it's easier to CS if you have a smooth, quick animation, but if you have a "bad" animation then you can get used to it and still do just fine, IMO.

I'm talking about mages, not for champs in general -_-


AP Jax is viable, thus he's a mage bub.
