Generally in high tier games, players will engage in a 5v5 battle in the first 2 minutes of the game to take control of rune buffs or the dragon for global exp & gold. If you have an annie in your line-up anyways, a clutch spell to get is Incinerate.

Incinerate - Annie casts a blazing cone of fire, dealing damage to all targets in the area.
Annie casts a cone of fire dealing 85 / 145 / 205 / 265 / 325 (+1 per ability power) magic damage to all enemy targets in the area.
Cooldown 8 seconds Cost 80 / 100 / 120 / 140 / 160 Mana Range 625

Pyromania - Every 5 spell casts, Annie's next spell will stun the target for 1.75 seconds.


Prior to engaging in a team fight, cast incinerate 4 times at your well to charge up your "Pyromania." Doing so will make your next spell do an Area of Effect (AOE) stunning your enemy for 1.75 seconds. We did this in our scrim yesterday and smashed 3 champions in the first 2 minutes of the game.

Wow, who would have ever thought of pre-charging pyromania?

Most people wouldn't charge it up before the creeps spawn. When creep buffs pop, if a group is going for them, they usually have all 5 players very close together. AoE stun= win.

Most people here will disregard this as common sense, but despite that none of them will do it when using annie.

Good tip. Great to know to get Incinerate first as Annie. This is useful even if you don't play in high-tier matches.

You're right.

Nobody here ever does it when playing Annie.

Nice. Afterwards, you have about 30 minutes to make any number of mistakes that cause the game to drag on and for Annie to become useless.
