Threats & Synergies
Sivir will always be a big threat so play around her safely - Keep your team near you.
Most JG's invade- I've noticed Yi does multiple times.
Even though you're not her support this game, you're still the one helping her. MF's ult and Brans correspond nicely and always have great combos together!
Champion Build Guide
Hi! My name is CrackedBathtub and I'm a brand main. I earned my mastery about 8 months ago and play him in all lanes! I have 360,000+ points on him currently, but hoping to reach 1 million soon.
Your first rune set would be domination!
This is followed by sorcery!
Why pick these runes? Well, let me tell you!
Dark Harvest allows Brand to inflict AP damage on victims carrying souls, which are shown with red circles and stacking those gains extra damage.
Cheap Shot deals bonus true damage to motion impaired champs, like using a Brand combo of E and Q or W and Q creating a stun or using his slow from his abilities.
Eyeball Collection allows kills and assists to give extra damage.
Brand is usually a slow champion, so manipulating runes allows him to go faster. Takedowns (Kills and Assists) will grant Brand out of combat movement speed.
While you're above 70% HP, you deal more damage. This rune is great for anything within the jungle and ganks!As I stated with Brand being a slow champ, Waterwalking allows him to have better ganks and go faster within the river.
I prefer having extra cooldown on Brand since his ult is great and stuns are faster, but feel free to add the Bonus adaptive damage twice! You can also switch out the extra HP for armor of magic resist against your enemy jungle or if they have a lot of mages or champs who use AD.
As a Jungler, smite is needed. Smite will heal you when you're low, steal camps from enemies, and even add chase which is great for Brand.
