What beats that? Jax doesn't, Xerath hasn't got a hope, and neither does nocturne, as she probably does not sleep.
I don't even see the fire based champions winning, since she is immortal and can not be destroyed. The limits of her power are probably unfathomable.
I know I just replied to someone else about Anivia, but I'm tired of this, "she is a God," argument. I'm going to bash Anivia into the ground RIGHT. NOW.
Firstly, her title is the cryo PHOENIX
Secondly, I did a ctrl + F of the word God on her lore page. Wasn't mentioned.
Third, the lore CLEARLY STATES that she is a being formed by the elements.
What few know, however, is that phoenixes are elemental beings, formed by the eternal essences of their native world.
The strongest thing about her stated in her lore is that she can not die. This is due to the fact that she is continuously reborn as an egg, but in theory if you kill the egg (like in the game) she will meet a true death.
The second most interesting (and unexplained) thing about her is that she "somehow knew" that she would be summoned to the league. After this fact, she becomes uninteresting and generally lacking in power.
Other lore facts are that:
She made friends with Ashe and Nunu.
She works with the league to bring other phoenixes to the league (a task that so far, hasn't worked out yet).
As you can see, she is not:
-A Godlike being.
-Even close to unstoppable.
-A threat needed to be watched over.
-Very sensible. For all her Wisdom where does she guard? A frozen waste.
Is she at ALL powerful? Yes, she joined the league, but then again why does that matter? Jax was an ordinary soldier. Yi and Fiora, although quite skilled are simple bladesmen. TEEMO IS IN THE LEAGUE.
She may be stronger than say, the average magic user (current Annie, MAYBE Swain, possibly Morgana) but compare her to Xeranth and it's no contest.
