I don't doubt that she is as the "big boys" seem to think so, but man... no escape.. super squishy... seems really scary to me.

is there some special build or way of playing her im unaware of?

Annie's Secret Weapon: Molten Shield

+60 Armor and MR, 60+ .2 thorns.

This makes annie tankier than other burst mages, and capable of dealing considerable sustained damage when being focused.

Also, you're more likely to see a group fusterclick and hit 100% of your enemies with Tibbers. Tibbers also does considerable sustained damage. 35 +.2 aoe, and 130 AA. Tibbers also scouts and tanks towers, another utility most mages don't have.

annie is a single target assassin, it takes very little gold to get to the kill limit where she can drop someone in a full combo(unlike most assassins, she can do it right at 6 without items), the only reason she isnt picked in 5s is because it generally leaves 4 other players standing and he extremely vulnerable,

but when you can instantly make a fight 3v2 on twisted treeline you make the bruisers job that much easier. really why any assassin is good on 3s when they arent on 5s

Somewhat, but as was previously said, she essentially has a Leona W... Blow your cooldowns for the instagib, if they tunnel you use shield and/or Cap if you have it, and then blow your cooldowns again if you last that long.

In the worst case look at it this way;

You kill Player 1 before they get to use their cooldowns.

Players 2 and 3 waste their cooldowns killing, or trying to kill, you.

Even if you die, your other 2 players now have 2 CD-less play things to massacre.


Hopefully that makes it a little easier to understand

seems like a .... more skillfull type thing and maybe just 3 bruisers is an easier strategy route for us noobs.
