Braum Top - Beefy Man Gives Up Supporting [12.17]

By BreadedBreadCrum


Hey! I am BreadedBreadCrumb and this guide is to provide a starting point and main ideas behind Braum top lane.
I one trick Ivern with over 400k Mastery on the OCE servers, being top 10. My secondary main is Braum, and I enjoy playing him both top lane and support.

What does Braum want out of his runes?

Braum wants a lot of different things. He wants to be health heavy because of his Winter's Bite scaling, but also loves armor and magic resist as his Stand Behind Me buffs himself to insane levels if he has high resistances. Braum also loves attack speed as it lets him activate his stun quickly and also deal high amounts of consistent mixed auto damage through his passive, Concussive Blows. Subsequently, Braum loves omnivamp, as it provides him with extra sustain with his passive autos and Q's. Simultaneously, Braum also loves attack damage as it makes him very good at dueling. Braum also NEEDS wave clear, so AD helps make wave clearing easier. Braum also loves poking with Winter's Bite, but this makes him quite a mana-hungry champion.
As you can see, Braum loves every stat except AP and Lethality. That being said, no runes or keystone can truly give Braum everything he needs to fulfill his bruiser/tank dream.

Grasp Build







This is my favourite rune page to go a majority of the time as it gives Braum a lot of good stats and scaling potential. I recommend going Conditioning a lot unless you're vsing a heavy dive champion top like Renekton or Irelia who can bypass your slows with their dashes.
The Domination secondary is a very good page to provide solo-laning sustain, which Braum lacks.
Precision is great for vsing lockdown with Legend: Tenacity. If you're going a DPS/Bruiser build, go Presence of Mind to prevent lower mana usage. If you're going a tank build, building tear is mandatory for Fimbulwinter, so Triumph is better for fights.
Go the Inspiration runes against sidepushers/waveclearers like Sion. Go Hullbreaker to challenge them.
I'm working on putting all my thoughts on each keystone and rune soon. A recent bug made everything in this guide get deleted so, I decided to refurbish everything. It might take some time, but I promise it'll be finished soon! I work pretty fast with anything I'm passionate about.

Side Note: Hullbreaker Build

With how secluded top lane has gotten, and the sudden surge of Hullbreaker, like a virus, I actually have found some good success with this dumb item on Braum.
Going Grasp of the Undying is usually the best option for Braum, as it provides scaling and anti-tank while being a good tool for side-laning with Demolish.
As for secondaries, I'll still have to find out, but Domination has done good for me, but I've yet to try Inspiration.
Trinity Force is great against turrets. Blade of the Ruined King most of the time as a third item.

I honestly don't know what else to go LOL

Lethal Build








Lethal Tempo, despite being a damage rune, is great on Braum
