How it works

  1. You support your Team providing Healing, Shielding and various Buffs.
  2. You rush Moonstone Renewer.
  3. You can peel from your carries with Exhaust.

How to play

  1. You need to adapt in the game to your team and to the enemy team.
  2. Your team needs to engage? Get items like Shurelya's Battlesong or Trailblazer.
  3. Your team getting poked to death? Consider getting Redemption AND/OR Locket of the Iron Solari
  4. If you are just getting poked and cannot manage to stay alive - get Kaenic Rookern or Warmog's Armor (caution: needs enough HP!)
  5. You have tanks, bruisers and your team lack damage? As a last resort, you can buy few items to even help with that!
  6. Remember to counter an enemy team. For example, if they have lots of healing, get Oblivion Orb early.
  7. You will heal your allies with Font of Life rune. Getting Rylai's Crystal Scepter will make your Tibbers healer as well (AOE aura)!
  8. Mid-late game, your Molten Shield (E) will have about 4 sec cooldown. Spam it.
  9. Early on, this build struggles with mana. Stack Tears (Q on minions). After one item and stacked Tear, you will be fine!

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. Keep track of the stacks of your Passive!
  2. If you are not sure if you will land Tibbers, use Q first to stun them, then use R.
  3. If you hit somebody with Mark (Snowball) and you go in, it is very telegraphed action. Opponents will expect you to use Tibbers right off. So they will use Flash as soon as you get to them. In such cases, it is better to stun them with Q or W. Followed by Tibbers to destroy them, while they are stunned.
  4. Q has travel time, W is as instant cast, and R is a targeted ability. It means that instant stun that they cannot dodge or site step is W.
  5. Preparing to engage? Stack your Passive with W and E.
Riot
  1. Storing a stun for use with her ultimate can turn the tide of a team fight.
  2. Striking killing blows on minions with Disintegrate enables Annie to farm extremely well early in the game.
  3. Molten Shield is a good spell to cast to work up to Annie's stun, so sometimes it's beneficial to grab at least 1 rank in it early.
