Threat Champion Notes

Miss Fortune Literally I don't know about others, but I have won every game ive played a against miss fortune, if you see her picked in champ select, insta-lock in Braum, all you have to do is jump infront of her when she ults, use your shield, and she's dead no joke, you can q and stun her incredibly easily, if your a good braum then this should be a easy game, play very aggressive

Early Game - Laning Phase

In lane PLEASE DO NOT STAND STILL, you are Braum, you need to show your dominance, move around a lot, use your Q to harass the enemy ADC and support, also use your shield when the enemy ADC wants to last hit a cannon minion, all you have to do is stand in front of it and you will block the auto attack, causing the enemy ADC to miss out on the money. Small things like these are very important as it's what gives you the advantage in lane, don't ever be scared, remember the fact that you are Braum, you're a tank, just do your job. If you want to engage, flashing and ulting is a classic move, it will normally guarantee a stun onto the enemy as it gives you enough time to apply your passive and apply the stun. Make sure you are always warding, bot lane is a very easy lane to gank, so always ward the river to know if you are going to get ganked, and use your Sweeping Lense to ensure the enemy has no vision.

Mid Game - Team Fighting

It's so simple, all you have to do is go to your ADC, look into their eyes, hug them, and never let go. Make sure you are always in front of your ADC in team fights, you need to protect them like a shepherd protects his flock, yes - THAT MEANS DYING FOR THEM (if it means they can get a few more kills). Don't be scared in team fights, you are the tank, do your job and soak up the damage. Braum is also very good at engaging, a classic move is flashing into the enemy team, specifically at the enemy ADC and ulting, this will give you enough time to run onto the enemy ADC and stun them, as long as you do this your team should be able to collapse onto the enemies and the team fight = a free win.

Some notes to think about before choosing this build

I have played Braum for a long time and I'm mastery level 7 with him, if I ever feel shaky I always go support Braum as it is actually quite easy to carry with, as long as you can carry your adc you can win any game. With this build you will be tanky enough to block everything you need to and protect your ADC. I definitely recommend this build if you really want to win a game with not as much effort as you playing ADC or another role. Good luck on the fields of justice.

Itemisation

Against lots of critical strike damage - I recommend you swap Gargoyle Stoneplate for a Randuin's Omen, so that you can front-line tank the critical strike damage without loosing too much health since you will have the effect of reducing critical strike damage by 20%. If you are really struggling and the enemies are ahead, I recommend switching Redemption for Dead Man's Plate just so that you gain more defensive stats to protect your team for longer (not forgetting that the speed up passive is very useful for you to engage in a team fight). Do this when going against a team with more than one ADC building critical strike damage or champions like Yasuo...

Against pure AD - I recommend swapping Gargoyle Stoneplate for Dead Man's Plate, again for the extra armor and health, and also for the speed up to help you engage in a team fight situation. If you are very behind or the enemies are very ahead, I recommend switching Redemption for Thronmail so that not only will your armor be incredibly high (helping you survive a fight), but you will also be dealing damage when you use your E - Unbreakable, helping set up a fight for your team very easily (by getting your opponents low). Do this when going against a team heavy in pure/flat AD, such as champions like Kha'Zix or Riven...

Against armor penetration / lethality - I recommend swapping Gargoyle Stoneplate for Dead Man's Plate, again for the extra armor and health, and also for the speed up to help you engage in a team fight situation. If you are very behind or the enemies are very ahead, I recommend switching Redemption for Sunfire Cape, as going heavy armor is useless since your opponents will shred through armor, instead going with this will not only give you constant damage in team fights (because of the Cinder effect), but it will also give you a massive health bonus needed to keep you alive in a team fight against your enemies. Do this when going against champions building full lethality/armor penetration, such as Zed or Quinn...

Against flat/pure AP - I recommend switching gargoyles stoneplate for adaptive helm, as it gives you extra cooldown reduction so you can spam more abilities, and gives you very good sustain in a team fight from the passive that reduces damage over time by 15%. If you are really struggling and the enemies are ahead, I recommend you swap Redemption for Abyssal Mask, so that you become more tanky against AP damage, and so that you provide that extra magic penetration for your team. Do this against champions like Brand or Morgana...

Against burst AP - I recommend you swap Redemption for Spirit Visage, so you get more health and magic resist, overall giving you incredible defensive statistics, to survive the burst and to also protect your fellow teammates from being burst down. (I recommend keeping Gargoyle Stoneplate and to activate it as soon as you are about to get burst so that you survive much more easily). Do this against champs like Annie or Lux...
