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.
Hello , i desided to do this guide to the new players , because i see a lot of brands failing hard.I have mastered Brand , so i'm gonna teach you how to play him , Brand have a lot of situational builds , it's hard to master him , but it's easy to play descent with him.I think you ssw Aexis in the Season One Tournament , he was really devastating , so i want to teach you how to play similar like he plays.
It's quite obvious , get 1 point to all spells , to let you make a combo.Brand is combo champion , he must harrass in combo's , like E + Q + W , and the squishy enemie in middle , like Ezreal would loose half hp.
If in enemy team there are a lot of melee champions , get your Conflagration maxed , if balanced , get your Pillar of Flame and Conflagration balanced.
Why i max Conflagration ? Because it's not skill shot and if you combo it , it does awesome AoE damage.
I get Flash + Ignite , because Brand with ignite and his passive , just you can't run from him with 50 hp , Flash - GTFO spell , it's obvious , i don't see any alternatives in my summoner spells , Flash + Ignite and nothing more.
Start with Doran's ring , and your early game mission is to farm as hell , i prefer to go middle , because you are devastating there , when you Recall , you must have atleast 1000g , to get tear of the goddess , or even more to get tear of the goddess and boots , i prefer the 2nd way.
When you are about 6 lvl you should have Tear of the Goddess , boots and hextech revolver , if you land 1 kill or got good farm , to get a kill in 6 lvl is pretty easy , Get your E + Q + W combo in harras , when player is half hp , get E + Q + W + R + Ignite combo , or even Flash to open the combo.Conglaturations ! You got 1 kill.
In middle 9-14 , you should have Rabadon death cap , Sorc.boots and void staff if you are dominating.It's very easy to dominate with brand , ganks very powerful , say to your teammate to let enemie to push , then open to enemie with E + Q + W + R ( if 2 enemies ) and ignite the squishy , or focused one.
Late game - I prefer to get BV ( Banshee's Veil ) to don't be so squishy , and counter some kind of champions like Karthus , or just silly players like WW who does ulti on you when you got BV up.
Farming - Early , Mid , Late game same combo , E + W to mages , or to all wave if you got good chunk of AP.
Very obvious , simple runes for AP Carry.
Greater mark of Insight - Magic Penetration for Ap carry, nothing more , to get your spells hit harder.
Greater Seal Of Clarity - I think Brand is mana hungry in early game , or since he got TOTG(Tear of the Goddess),so it would have you in early game to farm more , or just harrass.
Greater Glyph Of Force - Obvious , Ap - You hit harder.
Greater Quintessence of Potency - Early game dominating.
Greater Quintessence of Fortitude - Brand is squishy early game , so make you harder to kill.
Conflagrate + Pillar of Flame + Sear + Pyroclasm if needed = In open area , when ganking or 1v1sing
Sear + Conflagrate + Pillar of Flame + Pyroclasm = In Teamfights
Pillar of Flame + Sear + Conflagrate = Be careful , don't miss you Pillar of Flame , or your combination is ruined , prefer to use this combo when you aren't new in Brand.
