Not Updated For Current Season
Hi, This is my first ever build so please give some comments. Good/Bad, please let me know.
Brand is a very strong champion in my opinion. He does a great amount of damage and he havs some kind of cc. He can also deal AoE damage. That is why he is so op imo.
As I said, he deal a lot of damage. So don't be afraid to fight with other champion. Your skill can out damage the others'. Sometimes being risky is not a bad thing.
Remember the Bonus Effect
All Brand's skills have bonus effect if the target is hit by your skills within 4 seconds. So please remember what effect can fit the situation.
I take Greater Mark of Magic Penetration , Greater Seal of Scaling Ability Power, Greater Glyph of Ability Power and Greater Quintessence of Ability Power to maximize my damage. These can allow Brand to have a great early game.
League of Legend is a snowball game. If you are able to have a good early game, it is going to give you a great chance to have a better late game.
I take 9-0-21 because it is how mage choose their masteries in this game.
Not much should be said in Masteries I think.
Doran's Ring is a great fit for Brand in the early game.
Boots of Speed and 2 X Health Potion is what I usually buy in the first b. If there is extra money, another Doran's Ring is always good.
Then you upgrade your Boots of Speed ==>> Sorcerer's Shoes] and buy a [[Blasting Wand.
Blasting Wand is very important in the mid game because you can buy either Rabadon's Deathcap or Rylai's Crystal Scepter.
How you choose between these two depends on how you do in the game. If you are not doing enough damage Rabadon's Deathcap.
If you are being target Rylai's Crystal Scepter
After you have these two items and the game is not finished yet.
Then sell the Doran's Ring and buy some stronger items.
You can choose Void Staff if the oppo. is having a lot of MR.
Zhonya's Hourglass is a good choice too if you are being targeted by some AD champs.
Morello's Evil Tome and Will of the Ancients are also some possible items for you too.
It is kind of odd how I level up the skills but it is reasonable. Please read.
But I choose to start with my e Conflagration in level one because it is Brand's only skill that is a target-able skill. Once you use it, it is a guarantee damage on your opponent. And it is important in my skills combo.
In level two, I take Sear because you can stun the target for 2 seconds if the target is ablaze.
In level three, I choose to level up my Pillar of Flame and its bonus effect is that if the target is ablaze, you will do 25% additional damage on the opponent.
This is very important.
In level one, you choose Conflagration to make sure that the target is ablaze and if you hit the target with Sear, he will be stunned. And then you can make sure that the target is going to be hit by your Pillar of Flame. This is the combo that I mentioned earlier.
Make sure that you don't fire your Sear and Pillar of Flame randomly because you will need them.
After level three, I will just maximize my Pillar of Flame because it is very op. Of course your ult is very important too.
To Farm, you can use
To chase down a very low and running opponent champ, you can use your ult Pyroclasm on his nearby champ if you can not reach him because your ult is gonna bounce around
I choose Ignite to maximize my damage. Doesn't matter in lane phase or team fight phase. It is a very great choice.
Flash is the common spell for mage because it increases the survivability.
Ghost :Some person likes to use ghost instead of flash. Not a big deal
Exhaust :Usable. To limit the opponent's damage and mobility. Can be considered.
Clarity :Someone may feel like they don't have enough mana. This spell can increase the continued warfare capabilities in the early game, but not great in the team fight phase.
Teleport :Well, like Ghost, some person likes it, some doesn't.
Brand does not have a lot of health, so remember to buy wards to prevent ganking
If you are ganked, no panic and use
Please Please Please don't be picky to my grammar. I'm not a English Speaker. If some sentences do not make sense, please tell me and i'll make it right.
And Thank You for reading my build. Hope you Have Fun in game and Good Luck.
My Name in the Game is CliffyC.
Again, Thank You.
