Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
We all know brand is a AP/Nuke, if played right he will take people down without a sweat.
Brand's spells light his targets ablaze, dealing 2% of their maximum Health in magic damage per second for 4 seconds.
While enemies are affected by Brand's passive, any spell that hits the enemy will have an extra affect, depending on the spell. This is great for creating combos, etc
Q = Sear: Brand launches a ball of fire forward that deals magic damage. If the target is ablaze, the target will be stunned for 2 seconds.
W = Pillar of Flame: After a short delay, Brand creates a pillar of flame at a target area, dealing magic damage to enemy units with the area. Units that are ablaze take an additional 25% damage.
E = Conflagration: Brand conjures a powerful blast at his target, dealing magic damage to them. If the target is ablaze, the conflagration spreads to nearby enemies.
R / Ult = Pyroclasm (Ultimate): Brand unleashes a devastating torrent of fire, dealing damage each time it bounces. If a target is ablaze, Pyroclasm's missile speed increases.
- Very high burst damage
- will take down anyone that tries to 1v1
- Can get away from Ganks very easily
- Very fun to you
- Great for griding minions
- Will drop like a fly if hit
- will be focused in a team fight
Ghost- I myself love to your ghost for those chases that its a givin you will get the kill once you touch him.
Clarity- I really love those this the items on my build are not cheap, and keeps you from having the "B" back to base to get mana.
Now the other Spells i will actually use for him are Teleport and Exhaust
As brand you want to try you best to get Middle and not have to worry about anyone else taking u exp. He can harass very well
This is where it get fun, you are going to grab your boots first, and right off the bat try to get your Mejai's Soul-stealer, and start to get those stacks up ASAP. Now alot of people are not gonna agree but by about mid game you should have your "Deathcap" more then Half way built. As soon as you get that down its pretty much over.
Very easy thought the whole game you just need to do it right and your good to go.
At lv 1 you should have gotten you W witch is his AoE spell (very nice at keeping the enemy back)
Lv 2 you will have your Q use that to try and ignite them and then toss in a W if hit so you will do massive DMG
Lv 3 you will want to grab your E spell next
that is as far as im going to have to go in order to get your full combo and it just follow us though the rest of the game.
E,Q,W - The reason i have it like this is so you can get the enemy Ignited/burning, and when u with the the fire ball they will be stunned for enough time to get your W off which will do 25% more DMG since they are Ignited/Ablaze.
At this point you should be at at least lv 11, with about 3 or 4 items.
This is where it become fun and you will pretty much be like PWNed to everyone else.
Of course you are going to be using the same E,Q,W and now R in your combo to get the will with no problem what so ever.
Escape a Gank (Mid technique)
In order to escape a gank you will get to be Sight Wards. I do not have these on the item list as i see that are only if u want to get and are not completely needed.
As soon as you see someone in the bush just toss your W that way and send a Q a second later so that you W will blow up and "Ablaze" the champion allowing your Q to stun him with a easy get away.
Now if they have already started the gank and you didn't see it coming it is so simple, just toss your E on the closets one and hit them with Q while you run to your turret, once you get to your turrett you will prob be low life which means the champion is going to turret dive for the kill, in order to get the kill and not the turret just E,Q,W if any of those hit which one should and if they all do hit, well he is stunned and turret will take him out without you being touched.
Late-Game by far my most favorite of all with brand, he at this point with all of his items will just take down anyone with one simple combo, the champion will try to run but will be killed my Ablaze if they are that close to dying.
At his point you will have all your items or at least 5 of the 6, once your finish up the last item of course you buy the AP elixir just to put you over the top, again not needed to do but helps a lot.
Now this is just very simple stay with your team and ingage in team fights, never be caught alone any where, sure go and get blue every now and then but make sure no enemy champs are MIA. If they see you alone wit might be a easy kill since you would have used your Skills to kill the blue buff.
Of course you are just going to be following the save rotation as always just keep it up and you will do go.
Coming soon just getting a few more game in before i take the pic of my record so yall can see it :P
