Spells go from center of model to center, autos go from edge to edge, if autos went center to center you'd have weird issues with melees trying to hit people like 6 stack cho.

I noticed this a few days ago as well. It turns out that autoattack range is calculated from the edges of the champions while spell range is calculated from the centers. This leads to a discrepancy of ~100 units (the average champion is 100 units across). What this means is that Annie's Q is roughly equivalent to Grave's autoattack range (525).

Skills are from the center of the character.

Auto attacks have a 'reach'

Like how graves can **** further than 525 because the length of his weapon.


Annie has arms that reach.

It merely looks like it has longer range. Q is an instant cast skill at 625 range. This means as soon as you get in 625 range, you will cast your Q. Annie's autoattack also has 625 range however (like all auto attacks) there is some windup time and it locks onto the target once you start the auto attack. Annie happens to have a relatively large windup, allowing people to move out of range before the particle travels. This means people see you moving up, move back after your autoattack locks on and winds up, then get hit from seemingly 800 range. Add onto this the fact that her AA particle moves much more slowly than her Q particle and you further compound the effect of her AA looking like it has much more range than it does.
