Anivia Strengths & Weaknesses

Anivia has one of the strongest Passives in the game. It can prevent her from dying which offers her tons of extra protection throughout the game.

Thanks to your Wall CrystallizeW, Anivia has a lot of utility that can protect her and her allies. It can also increase her chances of surviving in skirmishes. It is really versatile and can also block the enemy off from entering a certain part of the map.

With your Ultimate Glacial StormR, Anivia’s sieging power is incredibly strong. With lots of mana, you can constantly push the enemy into the enemies Tower and force them to stay in the lane.


Whenever Anivia’s Passive is down, she is incredibly vulnerable to an all-in. Play safer whenever it is on cooldown.

Pre-6, Anivia has minimal threat in lane. She needs to play safe and wait for her level 6 power spike before she can start to lane properly. Focus on farming and playing safe in the early game.

Anivia relies heavily on mana throughout all stages of the game. She needs to get Tear as quickly as she can, and she needs every blue buff after the first one to constantly keep her Glacial StormR up.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Anivia is Average

Up until level 6, look to play safe and farm as much as you can. Once you’ve got enough gold for Tear, recall so you can start stacking the item.

As soon as you hit level 6, use your Ultimate Glacial StormR on the minion wave to keep it pushed into the enemies tower while remaining safe.

Keep a constant eye on your mana bar regardless of how fast or slow you're pushing the wave. If you’re out of mana, you’re no threat to the enemy.

Mid game
15 - 25 min

Continue pushing the minion wave with your Ultimate Glacial StormR while remaining safe. Keep the waves pushed so the enemy is unable to do anything or siege any of your objectives.

Rotate and move to objectives like the Dragon or Rift Herald and assist your Jungler in taking them. Anivia can help take these objectives incredibly fast.

Make sure you have vision around your lane at all times. As you’ll be constantly pushing, you need to ensure your flanks are warded so you do not die while you’re overextended and pushing.

Late game

Anivia is Strong

Stick with your team throughout the late game. If you’re caught out of position, the enemy may be able to end the game. You need to ensure your Passive is up in team fights to increase your chances of winning.

Counter pushes from the enemy team is a must in the late game. Stick with your team and use your Ultimate Glacial StormR to prevent the enemy from sieging objectives. This will make it hard for them to destroy your tier 3 towers.

Keep your Wall CrystallizeW off cooldown at all times in case you need to use it to disrupt the enemy or interrupt an engage. If you use it in the late game, you’re going to be vulnerable.

Power Spikes
Early game0 - 15 min

Anivia doesn’t spike at levels 2 or 3 like most champions. This is because she isn’t the strongest Mid laner in the early game and needs a lot of time to come online.

Anivia’s first major power spike is when she hits level 6 and unlocks her Ultimate Glacial StormR. She can constantly push the enemy into their tower, which can prevent the enemy from roaming and assisting their allies.

After Anivia has picked up her first component item, and in conjunction with her Ultimate Glacial StormR, Anivia can push the wave quickly and clear waves with ease.

Mid game15 - 25 min

During the mid-game, Anivia should have her Tear fully stacked. This will be very helpful for her as it will prevent her from running out of mana when using her Ultimate Glacial StormR.

At level 11, Anivia will have 2 points in her Ultimate Glacial StormR. Not only will it heavily increase her damage output, but it will make it hard for the enemy to siege any objectives as she can easily clear the wave.

Anivia is good in team fights, and the mid-game is usually when teams start grouping. This makes her a good mid-game champion.

Late game25+ min

In the late game, Anivia’s damage will be truly horrific. She will have multiple completed items, and her Ultimate Glacial StormR will deal tons of consistent damage.

Teams will continue grouping in the late game. This helps Anivia as she can land a 5 person Flash FrostQ, and her Ultimate Glacial StormR is an AOE tool. This means she can deal a lot of damage to targets if they’re grouped closely together.

In the late game, Anivia will have very short cooldowns on most of her abilities. She will be able to look for picks more frequently and secure kills with her team. Her Flash FrostQ, in particular, will be on a very low cooldown in the late game.
