Annie Annie, the Dark Child - Kit Update Idea

The Idea

Pyromania.png Pyromania works the same way as before but now instead being only a stun ability it will enhance next ability, based on the ability used, in a different way giving Annie choices of how she wants to use her abilities – stun, damage/shredder, or survivability. Tibbers' passive will reduce her basic abilities cooldowns when a Pyromania enhanced ability is being used.

  • [Q] Disintegrate.png Disintegrate allows Annie to farm safely from better range which is a Skillshot that does magic damage in Area in front of the 1st enemy collided.
    • Pyromania.png Pyromania enhances the travel distance and will stun damaged units.
  • [W] Incinerate.png Incinerate is damage focused ability that does magic damage to enemies in a cone.
    • Pyromania.png Pyromania enhancement will deal extra damage over time and will shred enemies magic resistance which can work great against tanks and enemies that stack MR.
  • [E] Molten Shield.png Molten Shield is oriented for Tank Annie and is a survival tool. It has more flat damage and scales less with AP to benefit items like Thornmail item.png Thornmail and Sunfire Cape item.png Sunfire Cape.
    • Pyromania.png Pyromania enhancement grands movement speed allowing Annie to escape from dangerous situations for example when being ganked or allowing her to gank and chase her opponents.
  • [R] Summon Tibbers.png Summon Tibbers allows Annie to initiate from a longer, safer distance. It does magic damage in massive area slowing down enemies giving which gives extra utility to her team. Upon casting, it grants Annie full stacks of Pyromania.png Pyromania instantly.
    • Tibbers also has a passive in which when she casts Pyromania.png Pyromania Enhanced ability it reduces the cooldown which will allowing her the combo system.
    • Tibbers Tibbers gets no changes.
