Welcome to my first official tutorial, in which i will describe how to play for Brand and how to use his potencial power. At the beginning, i would like to describe you Brand.
I play EU server and my nick is camejko.
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
Pros / Cons
- Wicked burst damage
- Great farmer
- Great passive
- Lower cooldowns
- Easily focusable in team fights
- Without cooldowns he do nothing
- Escape spell is missing
9x Greater Mark of Insight (+0.95 magic. pen.)
9x Greater Seal of Clarity ( +0.065 mana regen / 5 sec. per lvl.)
9x Greater Glyph of Force ( +0.17 ability power per lvl )
3x Greater Quintessence of Potency ( +4.95 ability power )
But you can use on CD reduction or on big HP too.
Flash – Flash is needed for attacking, escaping. Without it you are easy target.
Ignite – Ignite is great with passive and for healing restriction of your enemy.
Alternative spells :
Great against AD melle. But i think, it´s not very useful for Brand, depends on situation.
It can be useful in combination with Flash( sometimes i have used it). But i prefer Ignite.
Of course, sometimes it depends on CD and situation. This is.
We start by classic way Doran's Ringom. Hp + AP + mana regen are needed and all the things are quite enough. If i have about 1000-1500 I will buy boots and for the rest of the gold i buy dorans ring... If i am still farming or i got kills i buy dorans again to buy boots +2,(3) dorans + wards/potions. Maybe you are asking, why so many dorans? Mana regen is okay, you have AP too on combo and kills killy it´s enough for a long time. Trust me, it´s useful. After getting back we build catalyst. Next we sell dorans and build a hat as first big item and of course sorcer boots too. If you are greatly focused i recommend at first banshee and then the hat. If you have catalyst, u will build banshee before or after the hat, as i was saying. If enemies are heavy, who have big magic resist, we will build void staff or if we have only small resist, Abyssal Scepter will be enough for it. Sometimes it´s problem with cooldown so you can build Morello´s Evil Tome or you can use blue buff. During this u should buy blue elixir, of course...
Nothing to add at the end. All you need is patience. Play, use your brain and have fun by playing for Brand.
