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.
Reasons for Runes and Items.
Why do i have these runes you ask? Well i have these runes, because I really didnt know what to have, so I just put my basic AP/MP/Mana Regeneration runes.
The item list that i have is kind of the basic for Brand. I give some credit to Mike_295 on his build "Brand The Unforgiven Flame",so you might want to go check that out. I used to use his build when I first started playing Brand , but then I began to tweak it a little and decided to share it with everybody. From my experiences this build has work very well for me , only having gone negative on score a few times.
The main reason why I choose the Void Staff over the Lich bane, is because I don't like to go off ganking 1v1 or 2v1 ( me being the one.) If you are one of these people and the enemy team isn't armored then it would be a good choice to get a Lich Bane, so when you are fighting in between spells your physical attacks will be like nukes :D. The choice is all yours though.
The basic skill sequence I use for brand is either
1)Pillar, sear, conflagration,Pyrocalsm, and Pilar again.
Number #1 is what i do if i'm laning with a partner. If you cast pilar and your teamate has a slow or stun it works out well, because then you stun after there stun and you both use your spells or attack you finish them off :D.
Number #2 If good if someone is running away from a group of people, or if you find someone low-half health wondering in the jungle. Since right after you hit them up with Conflagration you immediately stun them with Sear. After that you nuke them down with Pillar of Flame and your ultimate if they try to run away, and maybe by then you could stun them again ^^.
In team fights I like to cast Pillar of Flame on the enemy team a lot before either team initiates, especially since it has long range and you can stay out of their reach. It is also a very helpful poking item when laning at the beginning and throughout the game. It is even better if 3+ enemy champions are bunched together so you can get a good hit on all of them. Also in team fights I like to cast my ultimate right after most of their team is just below half heath, because this benefits me and my team. This benefits me because I will get gold for an assist if one of them dies and I might even get a lucky kill :D. It benefits my team because it greatly reduces the enemy champions health and we can finish their team off faster than they can us,also it might provide us a good chance to push :).
I hope this build will help some of you (although i doubt it) and you enjoyed it :)
-May Brand be with you.
