"If they insist on a fight, I will oblige them"... You better sta
This man Loves his warm milk, Stings like a thrown iceburg, and his mom told him not to lose. Did I mention he probably has the most item/character specific dialog out of any champion? but he also "give more than harsh talking to!"
While Braum might look difficult to learn at fist, it's very easy if you have reflexes enough to consistently win games. Late-game support Braum focuses on front-lining for your team, absorbing damage, so they can mow the enemy down.
If you decide to take this build Top or Mid, you still have a lot of peel potential, but you don't hold anything back either. While he doesn't have any good scaling, and his escape isn't reliable, he has good base damage, awesome CC, and is quite frankly scary if you can get him going.
"My Shield is my Sword!"
- Braum, the Heart of the Freljord
The Protector you Deserve... But not the one you need right now
If you're familiar with Braum, you know the disadvantages to this build. Mainly that his escape relies on a minion wave right behind you. But his base Health and AD are strong enough that you can get a kill early, or wait it out until teamfights. But since no one ever goes solo lane Braum, they usually have no idea what to do and you can pick a an early kill with your autos and passive.
The Late-Game with Braum you can still peel for you teammates with Unbreakable (E), Use Winter's Bite (Q) to slow, and go in on the target with your team behind you. most of the time it's a very strong engage. After that, you just auto everyone to get your Stun off and your ADC should be able to clean everything up if you don't first *grin*.
More than a Shield (Items Analysis)
Since Braum's main damage comes from his autos, Attack Speed is incredibly important. as well as his ability to tank damage. With this in mind, he needs two things, Health obviously being one of them. The second in movement speed in combat. While Boots of Swiftness is a good idea, BG gives you attack speed you need to get your stun off anyway. So Zephyr gives you the movement speed, CDR, and Tenacity, and more. it's really the perfect item for Braum.
Deadman's Plate is best or getting back to lane or a fight, and gives good defense stats.
Fists of Fury:
This is the most fun you can have with Braum. His autos just keep coming, and the enemy can't do anything about it. BoRK has good AtkSpd with LifeSteal, and Phantom Dancer just good for Hitting more autos and passing through enemies. There is no escaping the stache' *grin*. And Trinity Force gives you a good Damage Spike so your autos really send them packing
This focuses on jumping into the enemy and tanking everything. Your autos combined with the Magic Damage from your SfC and TM passive, will deal a massive blow in the enemies' health. And if you have a single Target, you can slow them with Frozen Mallet until your passive goes off.
You thought full Tank Volibear or Zac was a pain to deal with?! nononono... Try Full tank Braum! This is a high Health high Armor build that makes you peel for days on end, with options to do a bit of Damage with a Titanic or Frozen Mallet.
How Strong is your Shield, Summoner? (Closing Remarks)
Braum is an incredibly fun champion if you know how to play him smart. He can deal high Damage, Tank Damage, and has awesome CC. While he has a few drawbacks in solo lane, they're not too difficult to overcome depending on your lane opponent, and you can have fun destroying your enemy with stuns and punches.
I hope this Guide at the least has entertained you, and I wish you luck on the fields of justice, Summoner!
