  • Biography
Boram Darkwill’s last years on the throne were a time of great uncertainty for Noxus, and many with an aptitude for magic left the capital for the relative peace of more distant provinces. Gregori the Gray and his wife, a witch by the name of Amoline, preferred to demonstrate their Noxian strength by taming the borderlands, rather than partaking in the political intrigue of the noble houses.

The young couple claimed a piece of land beyond the Ironspike Mountains to the north, finishing their small home just before winter and the arrival of their first child. During their journey, other colonists’ tales of the great shadow bears that once roamed the territory had captivated Amoline—now heavily pregnant, she passed the time sitting near the fireplace, creating a toy version of the protective creatures. Just as she finished sewing the last button eye on the stuffed bear, the quickening of labor overcame her. Gregori remarked later that his daughter was eager to play with her new toy, for there, on an ember-warmed hearth, Amoline brought Annie into the world.

When Annie was still a toddler, she and her father took ill. As night fell, Annie began to burn with fever, and soon she was so hot, she could no longer be held in her mother’s arms. Amoline grew desperate, deciding at last to fetch icy water from the nearby river. The next morning Gregori awoke, weak and groggy from his sickness. In the crib, a now-healthy Annie played with her stuffed bear, Tibbers, but Amoline was gone.

Naïvely, Annie believed her mother would one day return. Gregori would often find the girl sitting in her mother’s rocking chair near the hearth, hugging Tibbers and staring into a crackling fire, where he was sure there had been nothing but cold ashes. He chalked up these slips of the mind to the burden of parenting a child alone.

Years passed, bringing more colonists to the region. And in time, Gregori met Leanna, a woman seeking a new life outside the capital with her own young daughter, Daisy.

Annie was eager for a playmate, but spoiled by the indulgences of being an only child, so acclimation to her new stepfamily was difficult. Whenever Annie’s fiery temper erupted, it left Leanna uneasy, and quick to take her own daughter’s side. It fell to Gregori to keep an uneasy peace between the three.

Unused to the dangers of the untamed borderlands, Daisy’s playing ended in catastrophe for the family. Leanna, of course, blamed Annie for the loss of her daughter, focusing her rage and grief on her stepdaughter’s most prized possession: Tibbers. Annie was horrified as the last physical memory of her mother was threatened. The girl’s terror grew to an unbridled rage, releasing her latent and powerful pyromancy, and the stuffed bear was brought to life in a maelstrom of protective fire.

When the flames died down and the swirl of ash settled, Annie was left orphaned and alone.

Believing most city adults to be like her stepmother, Annie has kept to the wilder parts of her frontier homeland. On occasion, she will use her disarmingly adorable exterior to be taken in by some pioneer family long enough to be offered new clothes and a hot meal. However, fire and death awaits anyone foolish enough to try parting Annie from the stuffed bear at her side.

Kept safe by Tibbers, she wanders the dark forests of Noxus, oblivious to danger—and the dangers posed to others by her own unchecked power—hoping, one day, to find someone like her to play with.

"Ashes, ashes, they all fall down."

Patch History

v8.17

Attack range increased.

Right now, Annie doesn't really have gameplay outside of dumping all of her spells at once. Returning to her longer attack range lets her trade and harass with autos as an alternate pattern of aggression.

ATTACK RANGE : [575] 625


v8.9

25 mages have more mana regen and base mana, but less mana growth. 5 other mages have more mana regen.

We’re increasing mana regen on the champions most affected by the changes to Doran's Ring and Last Chapter. Mages are also getting some changes to their mana pools and their mana growth. Overall, they’ll be up a bit of starting mana and mana regen, but be substantially down on mana per level.


v7.22

BASE HEALTH : [511.68] 524
HEALTH GROWTH STAT : [76] 88


v7.9

With Aegis of the Legion's old aura out of the game, squishy champions who were relying on it to give them enough magic resist find themselves a bit on the burstable side.

HOORAY : Champions who previously gained no magic resist per level now gain 0.5 per level


v6.17
Tibbers’ enrage wears off faster after Annie dies.

One of our goals for Annie’s mid-season update was to let Tibbers realize the fantasy of infernal guardian. Enraging on Annie’s death is one of the approaches we took, the idea being that giant frothing hellbears are terrifying and you should run away from them. For that to work, however, players should feel like they stand a fair chance of outrunning Tibbers, so we’re toning his enrage down.

Summon Tibbers.png R - Summon: Tibbers

ANGER MANAGEMENT : Tibbers’ bonus movement and attack speed after Annie’s death decays 20% faster


v6.14
Tibbers is a less dumb bear. Still growls, though.

Just a few more improvements to Tibbers following Annie’s midseason update. With a smarter bear, the sky’s the limit for Annie players everywhere.

Summon Tibbers.png R - Summon: Tibbers

BEARISH INITIATIVE : If Tibbers’ target enters Fog of War, Tibbers now continues pathing to the target’s last known location, rather than stopping in his tracks
BEARISH FIGHTING : Tibbers no longer forgets how to attack his target if crowd controlled
BEARISH VANDALISM : Fixed a bug where Tibbers couldn’t be ordered to attack Inhibitors or the Nexus, though he sometimes decided to do so on his own
BEARISH VENGEANCE : Fixed a bug where Tibbers could fail to go berserk if Annie gave him a command at the moment she died


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

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
RESISTANCES No longer gives 10/20/30/40/50 armor and magic resist
DAMAGE REDUCTION Now gives 16/22/28/34/40% damage reduction for the duration
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

TIBBERS ATTACK DAMAGE : [80/105/130] 50/75/100
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
FOLLOW ME Annie can command Tibbers to follow her by selecting herself as Tibbers’ target
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

  • Incinerate.png W - Incinerate
    • BASE DAMAGE: 80/130/180/230/280 ⇒ 70/115/160/205/250

  • 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)

  • Summon: Tibbers
    • Tibbers’ Health increased to 1,200 / 2,100 / 3,000 from 1,200 / 1,600 / 2,000
    • Tibbers’ Magic Resist increased to 30 / 50 / 70 from 25 / 45 / 65
