    You mean Amoline? I don't think she was ever mentioned anywhere outside of her lore, so probably not.

    I'd say Wokung and Volibear. Can't remember anyone else now.

    Annie is probably the single best toon for learning how to play the game since her Q begs you to use it to practice last hitting and her mechanics/builds are all pretty obvious, so she will always have that going for her if nothing else.
    Light or darkness...which are you blinded by?

    Amazing spell effects to go with it.

    Must buy it.

    On topic: Annie is really not a bad champion at all... I only think her passive is a bit counterproductive... as it makes harrassing annoying if your stun is up, as it might waste it for when you need it in a critical situation (like when you're getting ganked).

    Still, she's a good champ.

    I love it when she calls out her bear, pretty amazing. Her spells have a really weird sound too! XD

    Love it so much, and oh, my god, that recall, so cute.

    I have a special place in my heart for firework animations. The Corki skin and now the Annie skin back to back is a bit painful to try to ignore. I already have skins for both. ~_~


    Edit: Incoming soon: Report: Kenai for harassment. Went mind and recalled all game. No help at all.

    Mid Jayce y/n/why would you ever?

    I feel like he has good roaming thanks to all of his speed modifier and he can definitely keep on his toes against both the usual APs and ADs that stay there... (it also gives me priority on blue huehuehue).

    Opinions?!

    I'd say it is as good as a Talon going mid?

    I honestly don't see how bad it could go.

    His kit is pretty amazing against anyone, I honestly don't see it would be bad for him to go mid.

    Always worth a try, I'd imagine. Heck, I've seen Sona jungle before, even if it went awful for the poor thing. ^_^

    I usually find in my games that people are pretty fine with unorthodox choices, though. Guess you just need to prove to the world that it works.

    oh god... that Annie skin....

    I wasn't really digging it, but that Recall is just TOOO freakin adorable.. why do all these amazing skins have to come out when I'm flat broke
    Reading A Song of Ice and Fire is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere, shoots the puppy and punches you in the face.

    Stands in front of 100 enemies with 10% health left "Myeh, I'll save my potions for when I REALLY need them." - every rpg player ever.

    Guess I'll just try!! I don't think he can pull off the level 3 insta-gibs that Talon does, but. :P

    I've seen a Soraka jungle once, she was the best.

    You don't need to kill people in lane, atleast when your jungler isn't there. And I'm pretty sure he can do more than Talon can do in mid.

    Talon just goes in, either kills after poking, a lot, or he doesn't, and I think Jayce is better at both killing and/or going in to kill.

    Y, y, was just saying that the playstyle would be different, ahah. I feel like with Jayce I'm going to have a lot of chances to roam considering how good he can farm and how many champs he counters. Good thing normals exist for testing!

    I think it's more a matter of your personal skill than Annie's mechanics if you can't play with her stun down. you can always get the stun up unless you're at 0 stacks going Q-W-E-TIBBERS. unless you manual cast this can be done in literally a flash.

    doing so will turn most ganks around unless you're in late game due to the simple fact that Annie is a burst mage. Tibbers has the added bonus as serving as a personal shield that is going to soak pretty much all skillshots aimed at you while doing some fairly heavy damage with his aura and auto attacks.

    even IF you didn't turn it around right there and then you still have 1.75s to leg it.

    overall she's a fun champion to play and she's usually vastly underestimated due to the simple fact that people know about orianna's/lux's/nidalee's damage, but they rarely see Annies and are therefore a bit in the blind.

    It seems damn close. We've seen AD bruisers/assasins go mid (Xin, Kha'Zix, Talon), and typical AP mages go mid, whether of the burst, sustained, or utility categories. Now we need to bring back the meta of supports and the AD carries going mid.

    Finally got to play Nidalee a few times since the pre-season patch(in normals anyway, not arams). She's really fun with new items, built her tanky bruiser-ish; every team fight would just jump in and sit on the enemy adc, wouldn't die either.
    In the game I actually managed to get more than a few items in, I went Ninja Tabi(was against Garen in lane, so built those), Warmogs, Spirit Visage, Iceborn Gauntlet, Black Cleaver, and Last Whisper(just built LW at the end real quick, didn't have money for anything else and was about to teamfight).

    Also managed to get in 10 or so games in a row of nothing but wins. Streak was ended mainly due to half of our team getting bad lag in-game during fights.
