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 want to show you my favorite champion: Brand
Brand is an really interesting champion he does insane damage and is an insane ganker. in teamfights you will fear brand because with brand in your team you will dominate teamfights. i think brands job is to keep enemys on low health to grant your team many kills, if you dont kill them your team will do the rest. thats why i love brand. your team will love you and you will love your team.
Pros / Cons
- Has an great early/mid/late game damage
- insane mid laner
- can harras easily without being hit
- his teamfight potential is INSANE cause of AoE
- he looks badass
- his pillar of flame is just... BOOM
- very squishy without defense masteries
- gets focused almost everytime (when they see your damage)
Some people may ask why i choose defense masteries. Since brand is REALLY squishy (i mean.... really) defense masteries let you be... less squishy so you can get harrased a bit without taking that big damage and since you can do damage without being hit you will not be harrased that much. taking defense masteries with brand is a must in my opinion because you need the items to do damage without taking items you will not do enough damage (because his ap scales arent that good). so you need to get ap, ap, ap.
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration :
magic pen. to give you a better damageoutput, magic pen with brand is just great because it helps you really well in early/mid game.
Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration:
since you need a LOT of mana in teamfights this mana regen runes are in my opinion the best.
Greater Glyph of Scaling Cooldown Reduction:
brands cooldowns are huge so you should really take cooldown reduction combined with Morello's Evil Tome it gives you really nice reduced cooldowns + more mana regen and ap.
Greater Seal of Armor or Greater Seal of Evasion
if you feel saver with armor or dodge.
Greater Glyph of Ability Power or Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist or Greater Glyph of Scaling Mana Regeneration
if you feel saver with magic resist. or just a little bit more starting ap whats great with Doran's Ring. or more mana regen for... you know... more mana regen...
i took Flash because brand not really has any escaping mechanism, this will help you alot.
i took Clarity because sometimes you r out of mana (early game) and sometimes late game after a long push. so i think its great on brand.
You start off with a Doran's Ring because this item is so great for brand it gives you health, ap and mana regen thats all you need for early game. Take Sorcerer's Shoes or Mercury's Treads (if you feel saver with more magic resist, i'd take the more saver ones if you want to be more less squishy). Buy Rod of Ages then. why? because you need ap, survivalbility and more mana. thats why. brand really needs mana and mana regen and this item build will give you that. Buy Morello's Evil Tome then to get some more ap, cooldown reduction and even more mana regen, just great since you need mana, ap and mana regen AND cooldown reduction this item is just made for brand (lol). Buy Rabadon's Deathcap to get an huge ap boost, more ap all the way. Buy Will of the Ancients and the last item you will buy is Rylai's Crystal Scepter.
here i made 2 matches to show you my results they all were randoms and the second one was an surrender:
The skill sequence is shown up ahead so i dont tell it again im just telling you the basics with brand. why you should take Conflagration first? because you can do damage without being hit. watch your enemys if they are farming some minion kills you can do a nice aoe Pillar of Flame and then Conflagration but remember you have to put Conflagration on a target that is ablaze to get this AoE effect. if you just want to do damege to your enemey you can just use Conflagration + Pillar of Flame. Conflagration + Sear + Pillar of Flame is an good combo to because he gets stunned and you will do a sure-hit with pillar of flame. i want to tell you something, if you get ganked by 2 enemys and no minions are near pop your ultimate at 1 and put Conflagration on the ablazed enemy and Pillar of Flame that WILL kill them if they are next to each other because your ultimate bounces 5 times and will do 750 damag at lvl 1 so each enemy gets 375 damage(+ your ap) + Conflagration and Pillar of Flame they will die or have REALLY REALLY low health. i almost killed every 2on1 gank with that combo. in teamfights you will do the same if there are at least 2 you will do Pillar of Flame and Conflagration to make some aoe damage, brands job in a teamfight is to let stay the enemys on low health to grant your team many kills. i mean if you Pillar of Flame + Conflagration + Pyroclasm them they all have low healht and then your team can just take them apart.
i know it isnt detailed at all but you just need that little common sense you know... but thats a little know-how guide. theres everything you have to know and everything you need. so if you have some issues dont vote bad... give me a chance to do it right. and test my guide before you r posting a comment or giving a bad voting.
