Hello and welcome! :)
Thanks to come to my 1st build and i hope you will like it. Brand is just too op that i cant keep my awsome build for myself xd. So go on and try it out!
Peace and I'll turn the world in FIRE! Mwahahahahaha
Why this build?
I saw a lot of other brand build that make an archangel item... but excuse me this is not a ryze build... and please try my build before voting.... i rarely do(never) negative game with this build... so let it a try.
Hello this is my build for brand. With this build you will get everything you should have 600+ ap with all items and 3200 health for not being so squishie. I play brand a lot and always do positive game with him.
Brand is AWSOME and OP when played correctly. He is a complete character. Stun, AoE, massive damage(NUKE). The best combo to you to farm is you use Sear on a minion so u Blaze him adn then use Conflagration and finish with Pillar of Flame . When fighting poeple, i mostly use this combo, Conflagration > Sear > Pillar of Flame > Pyroclasm (only if there is ONE and i say only ONE person or minion by him to take multiple damage > Ignite if the player run away.
Pros / Cons
+ High Bursts
+ One of the best passives in the game
+ Low cooldowns
+ Great farmer
+ Awsome mid champions
- A lot of Brand is OP comments in the game
- Easily focused if failed stun
- Useless without cooldowns up
I take pure ap runes, some flats and some /lvls. You will tell me why no mana regen? Simply because u have the blue buff in the jungle that is for you, and the saphire from early game give u a HUGE advantage versus ur opponant that have normally boots or doran ring. And with that sapphire u make a protector that restore you some mana and health thats awsome.
Rod of Ages This item help you early game for mana and health restore. And help you late game with more health and more ap and more mana, so a complete item for brand :D
Rabadon's Deathcap Is the perfect item for all AP casters.... the 30% more ap is the AWSOME.
Zhonya's Hourglass The item is crucial, in 1v1 or whatever when ur abilities are on cooldowns use this when u got low health and ur opponent too so it will make u kill him after the 2 second of invulnerability! :)
Void Staff The 40% magic pen make this item one of the best core item for brand, why make it late? because more champion lvl up more they get defense so its better to make magic pen at the end.
Rylai's Crystal Scepter This item give you, health, ap, and SLOW, when chasing some1 and escaping some1 its ALWAYS usefull to SLOW SOME1 =)
I always start off with Sapphire Crystal and 2 Health Potion or with Boots of Speed if there is a big harasser in the mid. Now i complet my Catalyst the Protector for great stay in the mid without backing. Now i make off my Sorcerer's Shoes for the magic pen bonus it gives. Now i focus making Rod of Ages and i buy a Elixir of Brilliance to have less cooldowns. Make Rabadon's Deathcap and then Zhonya's Hourglass to have a lot of AP. Now you choose between Void Staff or Rylai's Crystal Scepter . Rylai is more a defensive item than void staff.. So if you already on a killstreak take Void Staff first, and then Rylai's Crystal Scepter.
Flash Nothing to say about this.
Ignite this spell is all-around usefull to early game to late game.
Exhaust This one, is usefull is you are vs a lot of AD carry so they wont do a dommage to you and u have the time to kill them.
Ghost is only u want more movement speed.
Story of brand
In a faraway place known as Lokfar there was a seafaring marauder called Kegan Rodhe. As was his people's way, Kegan sailed far and wide with his fellows, stealing treasures from those unlucky enough to catch their attention. To some, he was a monster; to others, just a man. One night, as they sailed through the arctic waters, strange lights danced over the frozen wastes. There was something hypnotic about them; it was something that drew them to it like moths to a flame. Trekking across the frozen waste, they came to a cave covered in ancient runes. The meaning of the runes long lost to them, Kegan led the way inside. There, inside a perfect cage of ice floated a dancing column of flame. There was no way such a thing should be burning, especially not in this place. However, its movement was as hypnotic as a siren's song, captivating and seductive. While the others stayed back, Kegan could not help but approach it while holding out his hand...
That is the last thing Kegan Rodhe remembers, for now his body belongs to Brand. It is a creature of olden times, perhaps even a casualty of the Rune Wars. It is known in ancient texts as the Burning Vengeance. It is a creature of pure fiery hate that exists for no other reason than to lay waste the world of men and yordles. No one is quite sure how Brand found his way to Valoran, but he began his predations at once. Overcome by Demacian forces, he was given a choice: fight within the confines of the League or die. Naturally, he chose to use his destructive powers in the League, for now...
"This place will burn, not by cinder flying or breath of wind, but by the vengeance of my hand." -Brand
Tips for you guys.
Brand is considered OP, but u are not god too.... so play safe, defensively and dont cry to your teamate is u die... if you play correctly you'll win every game with this build. Trust me.
And btw, solo mid is the best with this build ;)
