Intro!

Hello everyone! I'm Lunchbawx, i have played for about a year now and this is my first build i ever posted. I'm gonna try to teach you how to play brand. I will tell you skill combo's farming tips, runes, masteries, item builds, and general information!


Guide Top

Runes

For runes i go with magic penetration reds, mana regen per level yellows, and flat ability power quints. I go with this set up because it allows me early game dominance. It keeps me from having to buy ability power as my first item and allows me to focus on survivability. with this set up i easily can get to 500+ ability power per game.


Guide Top

Masteries

i go 10/0/20 i add the 1 extra point in ignite for extra ap.


Guide Top

Items

For items i go rod of ages first, that way i get more mana and health and some decent ability power. i buy level 1 boots just before i finish my rod for movement. The rod is your main laning item. I go archangels for a nice pool of base ap for my rabadons right after. If you can lane decently or get kills, you will be hitting like a truck! ive gotten double kills only using my ulti alone in a 3v3.

Skill Sequence

Your W is your main source of damage in the beginning. End game it will be your second hardest hitting ability in teamfights. YOU MUST LEARN TO LEAD YOUR W!!! IF YOU DONT YOU WILL BE USELESS! your q is your hardest ability to use, honestly it needs to be redone because i still miss it...alot. also do not i repeat do not depend on ur passive to finish off the enemy.

Your basic skill combos are:

Stun: (W,E)+Q
Super Aoe: W+E+Q+R
Minion Farm: W+E

If you find another combo feel free to comment!

Summoner Spells

I go ghost in 3v3 because i prefer the sustained speed over the one flash.

I go ignite for my masteries, and also to finish off low enemies.

of course this is just pure opinion.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pros:
Great AOE Damage.
Great single target burst.
PINBALL WIZARD!
alot of damage fast...

Cons:
Low health unless built for it.
Squishy
not left click win.
Not malzahar.

Conclusion

Brand is an awesome teamfighter/laner. He does alot of 1V1 damage but struggles to survive throughout the conflict. If you build tanky you have more of a chance. My build is to be an absolute monster when it comes to damage. I die alot in games but i usually get double the kills. His ulti is the best aoe in the game in my opinion because...like the guide says...hes a pinball wizard. Have fun guys!
