The (meat) shield support
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.
Hi, I'm Senpai Noobesch, Plat 5 Support Main. I am going to teach you some Braum to rise your elo so let's not waste time and begin.(Sorry for grammar/spelling mistakes, I am not native)
Pros / Cons
Easy to pick up
Hard to Master
Needs premate adc
falls of lategame
I take armor in yellow mr in blue ad in reds and flat hp in quints, but you can take pretty much whatever you want, as long as it is somewhat tanky.
I have also juggled around with some ats reds and it can help to get those marks so defenitely try it out.
The Items are already listed in the Purchase section but to give a fast reminder.
Face of the Mountain,
Pretty much everyting you want
The skill sequence is R>Q>E>W
I start with q then e then w but you can take w second when you want to go for that lvl 2 cheese kill with lucian.
Teamwork is the most important thing with Braum. I recommend finding an adc main and train with him. Hint: Try to convince him to play Lucain because Braucian is busted. (Got me from G5 to P5). Jinx and Kogmaw are also nice and I can imagine that Trist works well too. (haven't tried it yet)
At lvl 1 stay safe and poke with q when there is an opportunity but usually don't engage because you have no w to close the gap, unless the enemies overstep hard.
With lvl 2 you can decide whether you want the w to engage or the e to stay safe (cait q for example).
Lvl 3 is your time to shine. Wait for your meele minions to reach their caster minions, (adc has to handle the wave -> premates needed) then jump on the minion with w and (aa) q aa whoever is near because it is pretty likely for the adc to stand behind the caster minions. When you have done this cast e to take no return damage or, (Braucian), let your adc finish the 2 remaining stacks. When you have landed some lvl 1 or 2 qs, that means pretty much they have to flash or/and heal to survive, if not, feel free to take firstblood.
When you got the sweet firstblood, you can duel every 2v2 bot lane. When they play passive, try to zone them away from the farm and pink ward your river bush. When the enemy botlane plays aggresive it should end up in more freekills the same way it did at lvl 3.
But if they decide to hug the tower, Dive (if possible).
The way to dive with Braum is to get that aa off on the adc and maybe land the q. When the tower focuses you, you must decide quick. Back out or finish the dive.
When you back out just shield up and w to your minions.
When you continue the dive, stay between your adc and theirs and put up the shield to let your adc aa for free, and tank the tower. When you can tank apprximately 3 more Towershots, run to the edge of Tower range and wait for them to come. As soon as the last Towershot is fired, run out of the Towerrange and by that time your adc should have a kill.
You might wonder why Braum carried my through a whole division.
Answer: Unique Skills and perfect DuoQ potential.
You have 2 built in slows and 1,5 ccs.
You have a shield that blocks every skillshots and negates even a syndra ult on your adc.
You have a gapcloser as support.
You are naturally tanky.
You can firstblood almost every lane.
It is just the best feeling to carry a whole evening of games with your adc.
If you want those things, you should pick up Braum.
When you have read my guide untill here, I have to say thank you for your attention and I hope you enjoyed it and learn some tricks. Feel free to correct me or give some advice how to make my guide better.
