Does Anivia still retain unique item effects while in egg form, such as Thornmail? Can she activate items like Deathfire Grasp? What summoner spells can she use, if she can use any at all?

Anivia's Ability Details


While in this [egg] form Anivia cannot move or use any abilities

  • No item active abilities
  • No summoner spells

It's undocumented whether item passive abilties still apply, so it's a great candidate for testing.

She's effectively stunned, so no active abilities or summoners. She does keep the same armor/magic resist, although the passive adds a modifier on top of that (negative at low levels, scaling up to +20 at level 15). I'm pretty sure Thornmail and similar passives still apply. Note that Guardian Angel is a special case: it triggers before the egg, so if you're in egg form it means you already used up Guardian Angel and it's on cooldown.

Can you include a source that shows that item passives still apply? Or could you record some simple tests? – Atav32 Jul 19 '12 at 6:04
+1, and ty for specifically mentioning GA - was about to ask question on exactly this situation ;) – Alok Aug 11 '12 at 10:24

Nothing of all that. She can't use items. Also her resistances drop to 0 and the passive effects of her items are lost.

Please be careful in your answers, her resistances do not drop to 0, but instead are modified by -40 / -25 / -10 / +5 / +20 depending on level - Anivia Rebirth – Atav32 Jul 19 '12 at 5:57
