Introduction

In a faraway place known as Lokfar there was a seafaring marauder called Kegan Rodhe. As was his people's way, Kegan sailed far and wide with his fellows, stealing treasures from those unlucky enough to catch their attention. To some, he was a monster; to others, just a man. One night, as they sailed through the arctic waters, strange lights danced over the frozen wastes. There was something hypnotic about them; it was something that drew them to it like moths to a flame. Trekking across the frozen waste, they came to a cave covered in ancient runes. The meaning of the runes long lost to them, Kegan led the way inside. There, inside a perfect cage of ice floated a dancing column of flame. There was no way such a thing should be burning, especially not in this place. However, its movement was as hypnotic as a siren's song, captivating and seductive. While the others stayed back, Kegan could not help but approach it while holding out his hand...

That is the last thing Kegan Rodhe remembers, for now his body belongs to Brand. It is a creature of olden times, perhaps even a casualty of the Rune Wars. It is known in ancient texts as the Burning Vengeance. It is a creature of pure fiery hate that exists for no other reason than to lay waste the world of men and yordles. No one is quite sure how Brand found his way to Valoran, but he began his predations at once. Overcome by Demacian forces, he was given a choice: fight within the confines of the League or die. Naturally, he chose to use his destructive powers in the League, for now...

''This place will burn, not by cinder flying or breath of wind, but by the vengeance of my hand.''
-Brand

Your abilities and How to use them .


______________________________________


Blaze

Blaze is your passive , it is very usefull because when you use a spell ( Q , W , E , R ) , it will ablaze the ennemy (add a ''ignite'' to the target).

Tips and tricks:
  • If a ennemy is very low hp , don't chase him , because you can kill him with Blaze
  • All of your spells have a special effect if the ennemy is ablaze .

Sear

Brand launches a fireball forward that deals magic damage to the first enemy it hits. If the target is ablaze, the target will be stunned for 2 seconds.
Tips and tricks:
  • Try to be very fast , beca&use Brand's burst is awesome

  • Tip/trick here.

Pillar of Flame

After a short delay, Brand blasts a target area, dealing magic damage to enemy units within the area. Units that are ablaze take an additional 25% damage.

Tips and tricks:
  • Tip/trick here.

  • Tip/trick here.

Conflagration

Brand conjures an instant blast at his target, dealing magic damage to it. If the target is ablaze the conflagration will also damage nearby enemies, as well as setting the units ablaze.

Tips and tricks:
  • Tip/trick here.

  • Tip/trick here.

Pyroclasm

Brand unleashes a devastating torrent of fire to a target that will bounce between enemies, dealing damage each time it bounces. If a target is ablaze, Pyroclasm's missile speed increases. It will bounce up to four times for a total of five hits, and can hit the same enemy up to three times.

Tips and tricks:
  • Use Pyroclasm vs chars like Malzahar or Annie is fabulous when they have their beast ( Bear , etc ..) Cause it will bounce many times if they are only both together

  • Keep your ulti for teamfights ! DONT USE IT IN 1 v 1 IF IT'S NOT NECCESSARY!

The Brand's combo

I think the best combo is :
- In 1 v 1 ( or 2 v 2 ) E > Q > A > R ( in 2 v 2 )
Whit this you will use your less powered spell ( E ) , Then Q to stun and W ( with + 25 % damages )
