In terms of just burst:

Veigar (single target) = Ryze (group) > Annie > Anivia

In terms of overall contribution to the game:

Annie > Anivia ~ Ryze > Veigar

I'd go with Anivia. JUst for the awesome utility of her spells and the fun of playing her.

Assuming the player is good at the champion; obviously Anivia.


Stuns, slow, walls LOLOL nukes, if you kill her LOL at you because she's alive again and everything is off CD for you to get combo's again.


Ryze has no stun, therefore he is at the bottom.
Veigar is totally owned by merc treads which takes away almost a third of his burst ability. Therefore he is slightly above Ryze.
Annie needs to farm her stun, therefor she is below Anivia.



Anyone who disagrees is obviously wrong.

Everyone always posts about how totally amazing anivia is, but then no one ever plays her.

There are a lot of heroes that are totally omg amazing in the right hands, the difference is that anivia is only good in the right hands.

Anyway, Veigar probably has the best burst under perfect circumstances. E.g. zapping a late game huge mana pool hero (like anivia) after stacking lots of magic pen.

Overall useful burst I'd probably say annie.

The phrase of all-time implies all possibilities and circumstances...


Anivia is the most useful caster in the entire game. Even if the other team is trying to shut her down, she is still more useful and can do more damage than annie/veigar/ryze if an enemy team is trying to shut them down.

Even Fiddle can be shutdown by a stun + flash.


If the thread was, "Who is the best burster in your opinion" That would be different.

Anivia wall isn't as great as it once was, with everyone taking Flash which also helps avoid her relatively slow moving nukes. Annie does have to charge her stun, but she has two AoE non-missle stuns, which is huge. Annie and Anivia were close at one point, but Annie's simplicity and instant-AoE-stun-burst makes her generally a better pick than Anivia in today's Flash-heavy game imo. The gap isn't all that big, though.

the only thing that stops me from voting for anivia is her burst is reliant on a skillshot.
while annie needs to cast to bring up her stunbear chain, when its ready, its ready. you know what you're getting every time you press that button with annie.
so for me, my vote goes to annie for best overall burster
anivia for second best burster, and also has the best utility out of the bunch
ryze has no stun; flash kills his burst chain
veigar's burst is also nullified by flash as well as a skillshot on comet

a lot of anivia's damage comes from her ulti which isn't burst so you are comparing a two ability burst to a 3 ability burst on all of the others (arguably all 4 on Ryze). so frankly it isnt a fair vote. but she can do quite a bit of damage in those two abilities
