Threats & Synergies
Fire melts ice for a good reason. Pre 6 you are ok but once she gets the bear be prepared to stay VERY passive.
In my opinion a very balanced fight he has great peel and engage while you have poke and disengage. Save your e for his adc and make sure that if he goes in to start the stun.
Block his Q with the e and don't w to your adc if he has q up that's an easy stun for him and you will kill your adc.
Nothing changes against blitz with braum just dodge the hook and you do fine. If your adc gets pulled jump to them and ult to save them.
You have no super hard engage so she doesn't do too much to stop you. Don't w until she has burned her ult. If you poke and get their adc close to a stun she puts a shield and stops that damage but then your adc can lay down poke afterwards.
Please just cry and stay passive your e can stop hers but she just hurts
Just hurt sion in lane. His w is trash early since he maxes it last so you can easily penetrate the sield. If he stands still charging his q your adc can stun him easily. Just be sure to not go too ham since he does have his passive
Your e has an intresting effect with leona e. If you are using your e and leona e's you she will instantly dash too you. Use this to punish her diving a tank instead of the adc. She still dives hard so be sure to keep some distance at level 2.
BEST PASSIVE IN THE GAME(up for debate but for supports i think it's definitely him)
Nice Q damage that scales with your health(keeping you doing damage as you build tank)
W can go to minions for a decent amount of mobility for a tank and a nice engage/escape
W E combo protects ADC
E stops everything besides Lux and Vel'Koz ult (Damn lasers)
You trigger caitlyn's everywhere with your E
Ult is great to start/disengage teamfight with nice peel
Works well with a lot of adc's
Best personality of all time ever
Melee support making him get poked
Without a wit's end ( My favorite final braum item when they are heavy AP) very hard to get your stun unless you have a minion to jump to
Low damage output due to 2 damaging abilities
Unlike almost every support his ganks for mages are absolute garbage (they don't attack fast and sometimes don't even know your passive leading to the final point)
When your team doesn't auto the person with 3 stacks because they are a mage you get triggered
LUCIAN( his passive)
Xayah (her passive works perfectly with your stun and then she pulls the 3 feathers from the autos back to root. Very very good if pulled off, but i haven't played braum with her i've been playing rakan)
Vayne(same reason as Xayah with 3 autos)
Ashe( Frozen bot lane, Secures your stun goes off due to her slow)
MF(for nice ult combo and that q applying on hit)
Ezreal (because taric is tired of going with him and again q applies on hit and if he builds blue it also slows like ashe)
Jinx (minigun is good for attack speed)
Kalista ( she attacks fast and her ult let's you engage well)
Kai'Sa (She needs CC but she has damage for days, land a q and she can take care of it)
If you haven't gotten the trend it's attack speed or on hit champs therfore braum does not work well with high damage low attack speed ADC's like
Caitlyn (you counter her so hard that being on her team will make her sad. She's the only adc on the not work well side I could say is decent with him)
Graves (don't play graves adc please)
Jhin (I swear to god if i have to explain this one)
IF NOT WITH A TWITCH OR A LUCIAN IGNORE THE TOP PARAGRAPH. Early game do not I repeat do not spam your q for poke. You max it first so until you start building your iceborn gauntlet/Frozen Heart you don't have the mana pool to spam. stay safe and only use your q when you want to do a trade don't poke. If enemy adc or support has a high damage skillshot (cait/sivir/ulted karma Q) use your e to stop it. Don't use it too often since it has a high cooldown until you max it.
When you hit 6 you need to ult only for good engage or disengage. If a sivir ults to come for you ult her and the support away. If you get dived on by the jungler and you aren't close to your tower ult and w to escape. If you have followed this guide you are probably 0/0/3 by level 9 and you are officially out of lanning phase. You don't gank mid. I will update mid and late game later.
550 views! Thank you guys so much. For the new items/reworked items I wouldn't go with the gargoyle like I said to for leona. Since braum doesn't dive he doesn't benefit from the bonus armor and mr. I would personally go for an abbysal against most mages since it makes your passive and q hit even harder and catch many people out by suprise. HOWEVER if the enemy team has a spell spammer (ryze cassiopea lissandra etc) get the adaptive helm, even though you get 10 less mr taking less damage from spells that are cast on you again in 4 seconds is so strong. Also this ***** on brands passive and teemo's poison so those are other people to buy it for. My choice to remove knights vow from the items seems odd since I preached it before. Look it's an item in a bad state. Even with the adjustments to other items not touching it the damage that you take for your adc makes no sense once they get life steal. It's a better to buy a locket in my honest opinion.
