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 guys, I am a silver player who likes to experiment with off-meta builds. I have played Braum since I started playing League and I believe he has the right kit to be a potent top laner. You may get flamed or reported in ranked though.
Despite Braum having no innate sustain, this can be remedied in part by purchasing CP, using Grasp of the Undying, and the health regen from Titanic Hydra.
Your job in lane is simple: W (onto the minion they are killing), Q, E, auto, stun, and ult if you need to. With his E, Braum can deny many top laners such as Jayce and Gnar who rely heavily on an initiation Q spell. By entering a 1v1 fight with your shield up, you can deny most of the damage coming your way with E and then respond with a devastating stun (in an oddly similar fashion to Jax's Counter Strike).
Make sure you have the mana to do this combo, as Braum is quite mana-hungry early if you spam q too much.
Now is where Top Lane Braum can shine as a dynamic teamfighter with the qualities of both an ADC and Support. At this point in the game you should have your attack speed from Tri Force and Phantom Dancer, allowing you to quickly follow up a good ult with a stun on their adc or other damage dealers. If you play your cards right, you may be surprised at how quickly Braum can isolate, immobilize, and delete enemies with his kit.
I am still testing out this build so feel free to leave comments and criticism so I can improve upon what I have. Please recognize that this build is experimental and you should probably try to learn the basics of Braum support before taking him to the top lane. Braum is definitely one of my favourite champions in League at the moment, so if you are looking to try new things, I reccommend giving this build a go in normals.
