I don't know about that. I picked up Annie and Ryze as my main heroes when I started playing and they haven't failed me in game yet.

I've played mainly Sivir and Taric, Sivir's a mixed bag for me due to her low HP, but her role is support. You don't go out and kill with her unless you're trying to run down the final hit on an enemy using the Q skill. Taric is nice for for starting out, very flexible build possibilities too.

But did you start playing before or after last patch (one that added Gem Knight and Taric)? Previous to that patch I'd recommend caster heroes but now, not so much.

Obsession:
But annie is weak as hell and you'll die alot. Stack AP and you have so low HP you die to anything. Stack HP and past mid-game your abilities can't hurt anyone. Either way, that 5k HP Nunu is gonna rock you... Annie isn't for noobs.


I know what you're saying and I agree she's not even close to the best hero in the game, but I'm referring to your first few matches. If you've never played a MOBA before many of the heroes abilities might seem overwhelming due to their multiple uses whereas Annie's are straight forward and allow you to grasp the basics of LoL with a strong attack, wider area attack, shield, and Tibbers as her ulti. Also at what point will you be facing a one on one with Nunu? Nunu's a tank, you never 1v1 a tank and Annie is not meant for 1v1 anyways. Always have a buddy with her preferably your own tank as she can support them well with her long range and the tank can absorb the blows for her. Plus if its your first time you should be doubling up with a vet anyway. Although she's not exactly a good hero she's decent enough to get the job done so long as you just keep your distance and fire away.

I started playing after Taric was added, and I still think Annie's a great way to pick up.

I personally think that in a 1v1 Annie is fine- she can kite melee heroes decently with impact and there's no ranged hero with an absurd amount of HP yet.

OMG necro thread man, i'd be suprised if the op still plays lol(dual meaning).

Buuuuut since i went and already got my stuff ready to post before i looked at the dates here it goes.


Easy choices to start out are

Melee: master yi, garen
Ranged: ashe, graves
Caster: teemo, brand

Funner choices or choices that are a little harder to learn but alot funner.

Melee: trynd, jax, jarvan IV
Ranged: vayne, twitch, kog maw
Caster: Singed, Cho gath, twisted fate
Other: Hecarim, vi, xin zhao(junglers). Sona, taric, thresh, lulu, leona(supports).

My personal favorite champions are singed, cho gath, hecarim, tryndamere, jax, twisted fate, and thresh. If i had to pick one to recommend i'd go with singed - he plays alot differently than most ap casters but is extremely fun and cheap to buy.
