Yeah I was agreeing with you.
However, still not convinced on deathfire. I know you said no to nashers. But that 25% CD red on it is stronger then deathfire's 15%. 9% from mastery at 30. 6% more is needed. Runes, then mp runes.
The 33% faster attack does seem wasted, but not really. Annie will have 93 damage at 18.
I believe that would give her .9attacks per second, from .7 base. 84 vs 65dps doesnt sound like much, but that is 100 more damage in the 5s incinerate cd period.
and much more vs towers. Plus as noted, she has a slow animation/attack. Speeding that up will help with last hits, and tagging runners with her longer range on auto attacks then spells.
