Ahri Her charm will leave you defenseless while she quickly bursts you down without a chance to retaliate but if you can stun her fast enough you can reverse that.

Introduction

Hello everyone reading this, I'm Redblaze0, a player that mains Brand. In this guide I will show you how to build and play him effectively my way.


Guide Top

Strong burst
Has many combos within his kit
High area of affect damage

Cons of Brand:

Useless while abilities are on cooldown
Abilities are hard to aim/direct

Runes

Runes

Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
9

Greater Seal of Mana Regeneration
9

Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction
9

Greater Quintessence of Scaling Ability Power
3

I use magic penetration marks so can do more damage when enemies build magic resist

I use mana regeneration seals so I can regain lost mana

I use cooldown reduction glyphs so I can use my combo over again faster

I use scaling ability power quintessences so I pack a big punch into my burst

In the ferocity tree:
Tier 1: Mages want ability power
Tier 2: I don't want to risk taking more damage
Tier 3: It's going to give him better scaling and good late game stats
Tier 4: It'll make you do tons of damage with your standard e>q>w combo
Tier 5: Any physical damage Brand can do is weak
Keystone: Deathfire Touch will proc on any spell damage so his passive dot will proc the mastery's dot which will substantially increase the damage

In the cunning tree:
Tier 1: It will let Brand get back to his lane and around the map faster
Tier 2: The biscuits are going to let him sustain himself early on
Tier 3: Makes it easier for Brand to execute low health enemies
Tier 4: After he gets a kill he'll be ready to repeat the process again

Items

Sorcerer's Shoes These are for extra magic penetration Liandry's Torment This has synergy with Brand's passive Hextech Protobelt-01 This is very good on Brand because it provides more burst and some mobility Rylai's Crystal Scepter This is so enemies don't escape after Brand has already used his entire combo Rabadon's Deathcap This is so Brand can burst enemy champions down more efficiently Void Staff This is usually my last item because in the late game people might stack some MR

Skill Sequence

You want to max Pillar of Flame first because it does the most damage and burst of all your abilities which is crucial to your combos. You want to max Conflagration second because it gives consistent and reliable damage. You want to max Sear last because it does unreliable single target damage and is only used to set up the combo.


Guide Top

Spells

His passive is Blaze which has Brand's abilities set his target ablaze a ticks down 8% of their maximum health, also when his abilities hit ablaze targets an additional effect is applied. When Brand hits 3 stacks of blaze on a target,matter a short delay they will explode.

His q is Sear which fires out a skill shot nuke fireball but when it hits a target ablaze, it stuns it.

His w is Pillar of Flame which is a ground target ability that after a brief delay, erupts for massive damage but if the targets are ablaze it does 25% more damage.

His e is Conflagration which is a single target ability but if the target is ablaze, conflagration will spread to nearby enemies.

His ultimate is Pyroclasm which is a single target ability where Brand unleashes a giant molten mass that bounces between random enemies but when targets are ablaze, the molten mass will prioritize champions to bounce to.


Brand's single target combo is Conflagration for blaze, then Sear to stun, and finally pillar of flame for massive burst, pyroclasm is optional at the end if you still need to finish them off.

Brand's multi target combo is Sear for blaze, then Conflagration so blaze will spread to everyone, then Pillar of Flame for the burst, and finally Pyroclasm to finish everyone off.

Unique Skills

Brand is a mage that has a ton of burst contained in his combinations. His combos will blaze through your opponents health bar and his passive will burn down the rest of it. Whenever Brand has an opportunity to rain fire onto his enemies he will either kill of the squishies, shred through the average ones, or tick down the tanks.

Summary

In conclusion, brand is a powerful and fun champion to play if you want to use flames to destroy others. When able to set up his combos he'll burst down anybody who gets lit ablaze by brand. I hope you enjoyed this guide and found it useful but remember, when used correctly Brand will be the fire that cleanses the rift.
