“Shouldn't be a hard lane and if u struggle with it try to avoid her in lane (she got a bit strong after buffs so try to wait for skirmishes and ur way stronger), because there's almost no way you can die unless you get hit a lot with Q. The only way she can kill you is by hitting the Q's. That's why dodging her Q's are key, if you go for a trade always look to move right/left/up/down just like Ahri's E. If she uses her Q for wave or to poke you and misses, look to play really aggro. Be mindfull of her egg when going for an all in while being low hp. She can use her passive to bait her jungler so don't go for an all in unless you know where the jungler is (if she has egg up).”
“A first time Anivia? Free kills. Anything above that? Extremely difficult. Early game she is quite weak but without picking up some decent summoner drops with your W she can just survive your early all in with her Egg, and TP back to lane if she ever gets low from your harass. Once she gets 6 it's a very stalemate match-up, she puts her R on the floor to wave-clear then walks away, easily ignoring you. Bird bitch has a great kit and when utilized correctly one wrong mistake and you're dead, similar to Cassiopeia. Do not Portal Jump in front of her for a guaranteed Q > E > ult in the face, you're sure to die. Her immense pressure of abusing bad positioning combined with her surprising damage makes it a real toughie.”
“I would highly suggest you get her egg off early as soon as possible (maybe with a jungle gank too). She will use Q-stun when you go in with your W so do your best to dodge. You will be using a full combo to kill her pre-6 and post-6. You won't have any extra damage to kill her egg. Also her waveclear is extremely hard to match up against post-6 once she gets her ultimate. Try get your jungler to gank as soon as possible so you can get the early snowball.”
“Start Corrupting because of her annoying push power post 6. Do not get fooled by her Passive and go for the kill only when you are 150% certain you will kill her in the passive too, proccing the passive is good too but you will rarely be able to proc it then kill her after she respawns (you will certainly use ignite to proc her passive the first time unless your jungler ganks and helps you).
Push first / Roam if you can, she can match your push easily but she cannot match your roam, so play around that. It is not necessary to kill her if you can't , she is too durable due to her passive and she can actually get kill pressure on you for her jungler with a proper W/Q combo. ”
“Good Anivia players can abuse Gangplank, but if you have Fleet and play safe it's easy to get a good CS.”
“The good anivias that know how to use wall properly can burst you quite alarmingly, but with any decent frontline you can just sit back and do your thing”
“A champion without dashes who I can zone with an AOE slow, outdamage for most of the game and block with my wall? Haha easy go next.”
“Anivia has the wave clear advantage. ||
Anivia and Annie are even pre-3 ||
Anivia wins pre-6 ||
Anivia and Annie are even post-6. ||
Anivia scales much better than Annie. ||
TIP: Try to bully her early - she will control the lane if you don't put pressure on her. At level 6 her egg is the issue - she has slows and stuns so it'll take a lot to get rid of it. The minute it is down is your chance to strike - one-shot her over and over whenever the opportunity is presented. (BONUS: Run her mana dry - she goes OOM very quickly) ||
BONUS: Opt for the one-shot build as she will out value you AOE wise.”
“This is ultimately a farm match up, Lux does have the advantage due to being longer range than Anivia initially. In terms of scaling, Anivia will be very strong in the mid game but with consistent jg pressure this match up is extremely free.
If you're able to play the match up normally, it will be Lux favored.
The only issue is if you try to force onto Anivia, she can create a kill window or initiate at max range with wall. Try not to lose early or you will have no control of this lane.”
“She weak early game because of her high cooldowns and scaling items. Despite being "weak" early, her lvl 1-2 is disgusting when against melee champions. She has high auto attack range, and if she has electrocute, then she's going to nuke you with Q + E. Avoid engaging if her Q is up. Yone will always dash in a straight line so it just makes it easy for her to hit it.
In the early game anivia really struggles farming, so try to shove her into the tower over and over. After level 6 you have to be careful because she can shut you down easily with her ultimate and wall. Save your third Q or ultimate to cancel her ultimate channel and focus on depleting her mana bar. Yone is also weak early on but once you have boots and your first mythic item you can easily deal with her if you get within range. Until that you have to focus mostly on farming if it's a good anivia. She's just going to afk farm the wave entire laning phase so you can't do much unless she overextends. She starts struggling when you go to the side lane because that's the point where she gets absolutely destroyed. Her immobility and the extended lane makes it impossible for her to escape when you're going in. ”
