There have always been those within Noxus who did not agree with the evils perpetrated by the Noxian High Command. The High Command had just put down a coup attempt from the self-proclaimed Crown Prince Raschallion, and a crackdown on any form of dissent against the new government was underway. These political and social outcasts, known as the Gray Order, sought to leave their neighbors in peace as they pursued dark arcane knowledge.

The leaders of this outcast society were a married couple: Gregori Hastur, the Gray Warlock, and his wife Amoline, the Shadow Witch. Together they led an exodus of magicians and other intelligentsia from Noxus, resettling their followers beyond the Great Barrier to the northern reaches of the unforgiving Voodoo Lands. Though survival was a challenge at times, the Gray Order's colony managed to thrive in a land where so many others would have failed.

Years after the exodus, Gregori and Amoline had a child: Annie. Early on, Annie's parents knew there was something special about their daughter. At the age of two, Annie miraculously ensorcelled a shadow bear - a ferocious denizen of the petrified forests outside the colony - turning it into her pet. To this day she keeps her bear "Tibbers" by her side, often keeping him spellbound as a stuffed doll to be carried like a child's toy. The combination of Annie's lineage and the dark magic of her birthplace have given this little girl tremendous arcane power.

In the time shortly before the League, there were those within the sinister city-state of Noxus who did not agree with the evils perpetrated by the Noxian High Command. The High Command had just put down a coup attempt from the self-proclaimed Crown Prince Raschallion, and a crack down on any form of dissent against the new government was underway. These political and social outcasts, known as the Gray Order, sought to leave their neighbors in peace as they pursued dark arcane knowledge.

At the age of two, Annie miraculously ensorcelled a shadow bear - a ferocious denizen of the petrified forests outside the colony - turning it into her pet. To this day she keeps her bear "Tibbers" by her side, often keeping him spellbound as a stuffed doll to be carried like a child's toy. The combination of Annie's lineage and the dark magic of her birthplace have given this little girl tremendous arcane power. It is this same girl who now finds herself as one of the most sought-after champions within the League of Legends - even by the city-state that would have exiled her parents had they not fled beforehand.

"Annie may be one of the most powerful champions ever to have fought in a Field of Justice. I shudder to think of her capabilities when she becomes an adult."

- High Councilor Kiersta Mandrake

Patch History

v6.9

Bears.

Annie's simplicity as one of League’s original 40 belies a surprising amount of depth, but there arfew areas where her gameplay simply needs to be brought up to modern standards. The first is the lack of clarity around her stun. A skilled Annie learns to bypass Pyromania's indicator by sitting on three stacks, then burning Molten Shield to proc Pyromania as she throws out a near-instant stun. While this lends some degree of mastery to Annie's kit, it means a significant chunk of her has been tied to outplaying the UI. Pyromania is now tracked on a resource bar and we’re moving that elsewhere -- more on that later.

The other half of Pyromania’s problem is actually Molten Shield, whose outdated design doesn’t offer enough for Annie to value it as anything other than a cheap Pyromania stack. Molten Shield is being modernized to a shorter, situationally powerful tool with clearer anti-burst uses against the likes of Zed ult, giving Annie a reason to feel good about it.

Returning to the question of how we’re compensating Annie for losing her invisible stun, that is being reallocated to Tibbers, the most unrealized aspect of Annie's fantasy as pyro girl with giant bear guardian. For being such an integral part of Annie’s character, Tibbers serves little purpose outside of a safer AoE spell than Incinerate foflash-stun combo. We're putting some fury into Tibbers’ bear swipes and smartening up his AI to make him a persistent threat until killed, befitting his status as the infernal familiar Annie's always deserved.

Pyromania.png Passive - Pyromania

LET’S COUNT TO FIVE : Pyromania stacks are now displayed under Annie’s health bar (similar to Jhin’s bullets)

Incinerate.png W - Incinerate

RANGE : 560 625
HEAT WAVE : Fixed a bug where units would be hit if they had escaped the area after the cast

Molten Shield.png E - Molten Shield

DURATION : 5 seconds 2.5 seconds
DAMAGE ON BEING BASIC ATTACKED : 20/30/40/50/60 30/45/60/75/90
DAMAGE RETURN RATIO : 0.2 ability power 0.3 ability power
REMOVED RESISTANCES : No longer gives 10/20/30/40/50 armor and magic resist
NEW DAMAGE REDUCTION : Now gives 16/22/28/34/40% damage reduction for the duration
REMOVED SPEED BEAR : No longer speeds up Tibbers

Summon Tibbers.png R - Summon: Tibbers

DAMAGE : 175/300/425 150/275/400
RATIO : 0.8 ability power 0.65 ability power
AURA DAMAGE : 20/30/40 10/15/20
AURA RATIO : 0.2 ability power 0.1 ability power
TIBBERS ATTACK DAMAGE : 80/105/130 50/75/100
NEW TIBBERS ATTACK RATIO : 0.15 ability power
TIBBERS ATTACK RANGE : 125 150
PRESENCE OF MIND : Tibbers’ AI has been improved to better follow Annie’s commands and reduce cases where he suddenly stops doing anything
NEW FOLLOW ME : Annie can command Tibbers to follow her by selecting herself as Tibbers’ target
NEW KEEP UP : While out of combat for at least a seconds, Tibbers gains movement speed when moving toward Annie and regenerates 6.0% of his maximum health every second
BEARROIDS : Tibbers enrages on summon, ignoring unit collision and gaining 275% bonus attack speed and 100% bonus movement speed (decaying over 3 seconds)
BURNING RAGE : Using Pyromania on an enemy champion also causes Tibbers to enrage
BEAR VENGEANCE : If Annie dies while Tibbers is summoned, Tibbers instantly regenerates 50% of his missing health, enrages, and targets Annie’s killer. If Annie’s killer is too far away, Tibbers will focus the lowest health champion instead.


v5.9
Annie's basic attack range is shorter.

"For a bear-toting powder keg of midlane murder, Annie's ranges have always made it difficult to interact. Though her attack range is still above average, keeping it in-line with her spells helps opponents skirt the dangerous line between 'On-Fire' and 'about to be'."
  • General
    • ATTACK RANGE : 625 575

v5.6
Tibbers aura damage scales with rank.

"For a long time we've been pushing Annie into being League's Premier "bear-mage" (that's a thing), be it by lowering Tibbers' cooldown, giving him better defenses, or sharing Molten Shield. With plays beginning to fully respect Tibbers as an entity (he has feelings too, you know), we're pulling back on some of the free damage you get just for being within hugging distance. "
  • Summon Tibbers.png R - Summon:Tibbers

TIBBERS AURA BASE DAMAGE : 35 magic damage 20/30/40 magic damage


v5.2
TIBBERS GETS MOLTEN SHIELD WHEN ANNIE DOES AND RUNS SUPER FAST.

"Though Annie is definitely less powerful in a world without Deathfire Grasp, she's still one of the strongest burst-initiators in the game and can still one-shot squishies even with different items. Still, we wanted to give some love to the cutest pyromaniac in League (sorry Brand) and Molten Shield felt like the right place (as it's also her least-interesting ability). Ultimately these changes help push Annie closer to her unique identity as a teddy bear-centric mage (that's a thing)."
  • Molten Shield.png E - Molten Shield
    • ARMOR / MAGIC RESISTANCE BONUS : 20/30/40/50/60 10/20/30/40/50
  • Summon Tibbers.png R - Summon: Tibbers
    • [NEW] DON'T RUN FROM BEARS : When Annie casts Molten Shield, Tibbers gains +300 bonus movement speed, decaying over 0.75 seconds
    • [NEW] MOLTEN TIBBERS : Tibbers now also receives the benefits of Molten Shield when Annie casts it while he's up
    • DIET TIBBERS : Tibbers' collision radius has been reduced to let him move past minions easier

v4.4
We like Annie's versatility, but some of her base damage is too high for how she's currently being used. Our goal is to introduce more interesting choices in Annie's kit (particularly on that Disintegrate buff) as we looked for ways to buff her late game scaling when she builds more traditional AP items.

We've reduced Disintegrate's cooldown by half on any kill (champion or minion). We've also fiddled with Incinerate and Tibbers so they do less base damage but scale better with AP.

  • Disintegrate.png Q - Disintegrate
    • NEW UTILITY: Reduces cooldown by half on all kills (champion or minion)
    • BASE DAMAGE: 85/125/165/205/245 ⇒ 80/115/150/185/220
    • ABILITY POWER RATIO: 0.7 ⇒ 0.8
  • Incinerate.png W - Incinerate
    • BASE DAMAGE: 80/130/180/230/280 ⇒ 70/115/160/205/250
    • ABILITY POWER RATIO: 0.75 ⇒ 0.85
  • Summon Tibbers.png R - Summon: Tibbers
    • BASE DAMAGE: 200/325/450 ⇒ 175/300/425
    • ABILITY POWER RATIO: 0.7 ⇒ 0.8

v4.1
Summary: Pyromania’s stun duration is now shorter at earlier levels but Summon: Tibbers’ cooldown has been reduced at later levels to compensate.

Annie’s a terrifying kid to play against in the early phases of the game – even before Tibbers joins the party– mostly due to her long duration stun at level 1. With these changes, we want to give Annie’s lane opponents some more room to breathe against her early threat, but we’ve given Tibbers more late game playtime to compensate. This should lessen a bit of Annie’s power without incinerating her overall strengths.

  • Pyromania.png Passive - Pyromania
    • Stun duration now scales 1.25/1.5/1.75 seconds at levels 1/6/11 (from 1.75 seconds at all levels)
  • Summon Tibbers.png R - Summon Tibbers
    • Cooldown reduced to 120/100/80 seconds (from 120 at all ranks)

v3.08

  • Summon: Tibbers
    • Tibbers’ Health increased to 1,200 / 2,100 / 3,000 from 1,200 / 1,600 / 2,000
