Summoner Spells Back to Top

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

I've bounced back and fourth from Deathfire Grasp and Thunderlord's Decree. But i feel that Deathfire wins out with me since i've put CDR glyphs to the runepage. Brand's playstyle is privvy to DoT anyways so why not enhance it.

63.png The Freljord Wonder
If you look at the damage at lvl 1 between E and W you'll notice that E actually does more damage and is a point and click spell as opposed to a skillshot. I feel like a mistake i see often with other brand players is the w spam, they don't get the value out of brands mana that way. That being said, if you have a sweet jungler that feeds you blues W can be a godsend for zoning people out of CS.

Q- Sear is probably brands most important skill because while an enemy is burning with Blaze (his passive) it will produce a 2 second stun. To which you can quickly dump your who combo into them. Also, a sweet ProTip; At lvl 13 brand can apply the 2 second stun by only using Q-Q. Execute this for enemy 3070.png.

W- Pillar of Flame is the damage dealer giving you a nice AoE that does 25% more damage with Blaze applied. This is also a longer range than E giving you a larger killzone if you can land the W-Q skillshots.

E- Conflagration is very useful as it is the lowest mana cost way to apply Blaze and should almost always be the beginning of your full combo. E is also very effective in a teamfight E-W provides massive AoE dammage.

R- Pyroclasm is one of the most misunderstood of brands abilities. I use it in 3 main cases; First off, R has the longest range of any of brands abilities due to its ability to bounce off targets. so you can use it to chase down enemies in the jungles or in lane off minions or champs. Secondly, it is an anti-gank utility if you can get them to group together away from the minion wave. Lastly, it is the quickest way to apply blaze to multiple units to follow up with your W granting you 25% more damage.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    If you aren't ahead it might be a good idea to try and pick up two dorans.

Core Items

    These are the main items for brand to start becoming a problem. The liandrys and rylais both tick off of your passive and add up to crazy % HP dmg.
    Sample full build

Situational Items

    If vs AD heavy team pick Zhonyas, if AP heavy pick Abyssal Scepter

Rylai's procs with each tick of Liandry's. Liandry's ticks for each second of Blaze (Brand's pasive) and another 3 seconds after that. Blaze is applied on ability.

Liandry's burns 3 seconds on ability damage. Since each of Brand's skills applies Blaze for 4 seconds, Liandry's burns for a total of 7 seconds. With Rylai's the 7 second burn of 2% each second is now 7 seconds of 4% current health. This gives us 28% (7*4) of current health burn and 8% (Blaze) of maximum health burn.

This makes brand a very unique AP midlaner, because if you stack magic pen you essentially do true damage on every hit. That means big beefy tanks, which are rampant in the current meta still feel the bern.

Ahri

Hard

Shes a wave-pushing slippery ball of AP, avoid playing into this pick if possible.

If you're faced with it though, try and go in when her Q is on cooldown.

VS

LeBlanc

Easy

Lux

Medium

I feel like this is a pretty even match-up whoever lands the skillshots win the lane.

Skill Combos Back to Top

E-Q (good for setting up a gank or your combo)
E-Q-W (standard full combo)
E-W-Q (good for champs that can block Q or are sitting in minions)
W-Q (long range stun + great zoning)
R-Q (longer range stun)
Q-E-W-R-Q (maximum damage output in any 2+ champ situation/ Ideal for teamfights)
Q-E-W-Q (personal favorite combo, Q something near then E onto target and follow up with a W-Q or a Q-W depending on Q cooldown)
