How to play Annette
In the early game, you should move to the bushes near the river in case the enemy hero turns to rob the jungle. Or with her Skill 2, Annette can also move to harass enemy heroes robbing jungle. But be careful on your way back. After that, you should move quickly to your ADC to help him push the lane. You can also use your skills to poke the opponent.
As a support player, you need to pay attention to the small map, pay attention to the times the enemy hero has lost, and the direction of the enemy hero’s movement to promptly ping your teammates. Pay particular attention to the time enemy jungler completes the jungle ring and moves to gank a lane. When you see enemy heroes move down to gank your lane, use Skill 2 and Skill 1 to prevent enemy heroes from approaching and help teammates back safely.
Mid and late game
From the mid-game to the late game, when Annette owns 3 or more items, she will give her the best support.
You should still maintain a supportive play beside your ADC “like glue” to support him clearing the creeps as well as attacking the opponent’s first tower. You should still practice the habit of observing the small map to help teammates control vision, ping teammates when it is dangerous to teammates.
Gradually at the end of the game, you should call on your teammates to move together to avoid unnecessary snatching. From there, you and your teammates can control and attack main targets like enemy towers.
In the fighting phases, you need to choose the timing of using the ultimate skill appropriately. For example, the enemy hero has the heroes that stand still when using the ultimate, then use the ultimate to dash into the enemy’s ultimate. Or if the opponent’s team has the heroes to capture the ADC, mage of your team, you can use Annette ‘s skills to block those skills. In the fighting will be very chaotic, you should pay attention to the whole fight, pay attention to the ADC, mage of your team to protect your teammates.
