Not Updated For Current Season

Greetings people of the internet, welcome to my first guide.
Technically its not my first ever guide, however it’s the one I will be working the most on. I’m not doing this for any particular reason. I would simply like to try to help people out, however this is not my only goal. Today I shall be sharing my experience with you; how I play the character, Brand.
I will open with a little bit about myself.
My name is Kirisin or rather it’s what I care to be called online and I have been playing league for a year or two now, but only recently got into playing it more seriously and with more effort. I must mention that I am not, in any way, the best player. I can play very well sometimes, but not, in any way, all the time.
If you have any questions please ask. I like to be friendly, if anyone would like to play with me on league.
Oh if anyone has any problems with this guide notices anything please tell me.
I apologise before had for any spelling and grammar mistakes. I have a lot of difficulty with writing and typing due to eyesight dyslexia and other things.
Without further ado the guide. enjoy
Brand, the burning vengeance.
"This place will burn, not by cinder flying or breath of wind, but by the vengeance of my hand"
Brand is an ability power caster. Yes you guessed it he is a ranged mage, a decent pick in many mid role's and in my opinion, a very decent character to learn how to play.
A decent brand is able to harass a lane to dry up the gold and exp supply to the enemy mid. It is brands forte to play aggressively.
So a little about said skills to help you burn your playthings to a crisp.
Brand has probably one of my favourite arsenal of spells out of a lot of the champs that I play, but where to start.
Brand has a unique passive available to him which buffs his other spells giving them extra effects.
Blaze is brands passive. it is in essence a small version of ignite without the reduced healing ability.
Brands spells set his targets ablaze dealing 2% of their maximum health as damage over a 4 second period of them burning
Pillar of flame:
Pillar of flame is an amazing damage spell, 255 base damage (at spell level 5) plus 60% of your AP, plus an additional 25% damage if the target is ablaze. This is first and foremost your damadge spell, kill and harras all in one little neat package.
And who doesn’t love area of effect damage.
Conflagration is an interesting ability like pillar of flame it can be used in quite a few ways. The main way you are going to use this ability is to lead into your combo. Due to brands nature and his skill set, when you are fighting you are going to want things to be burning (mostly for the additional effects).
Conflagration is your way of starting off a combo, what it is is a single target effect that does 210 base damage plus 55% of your current ability power. Now half of the time you are not going to be using this ability to do damage to your opponent, Yes yes it is a nice adition however its main function is to set your target ablaze to segway into more ability’s.
