About the skill order and skill priority for Anivia, it's really simple. You must level up Anivia's Flash Frost (Q) at level 1 and then max up Frostbite (E) and lastly Crystallize (W).

Once you know the ability order and Anivia runes, it's important to know what the best Anivia build is and how you can delete almost any enemy after hitting them with a successful Flash frost and Frostbite. So, Anivia build is focused on magical damage, low cooldowns and being able to apply CC to other champions.

Best Starter Anivia Items

Anivia mid, as any other mage champion, spends a lot of mana in the early stages of the game. For that reason, you can buy Tear of the Goddess or a Doran's ring as starter items. This will help you to spam your Flash frost without spending too much mana. But be careful, always take a look at your mana bar when trading with enemies.
