Brand FAQs

Q: When should I use Brand's Ultimate?

A: Brand's ultimate bounces between targets. If used alone, it won't prioritize enemy champions. However, if the targets are already set ablaze, Brand's Ult will prioritize nearby champions. If there are minions nearby, you need to set your targets ablaze before using it or most of the damage will be wasted. The best time to use it is when you are only facing enemy champions and they are close together.

Q: What items can I add to my Brand build in LoL that will make him more useful to the team?

A: Brand does a lot of damage over time. Adding Rylai's Crystal Scepter to your Brand build will make him a lot more helpful by slowing down multiple enemies in each teamfight.

Q: What is Brand's greatest strength?

A: Brand's greatest strength is his massive damage output. He deals both damage over time and area of effect damage. In teamfights, he is absolutely devastating. Furthermore, by combining his passive DoT with DoT items, he can deal a massive amount of damage through poking.

Q: What is Brand's biggest weakness?

A: Brand has a stun that is excellent at stopping closers from engaging with him directly. However, it is a skillshot that can be dodged or intercepted by minions. Against very agile champions, he has a hard time of not getting closed on and killed quickly.

Additional Brand Build Insights

LoL Brand players could find him to be a difficult champion to build out properly. You will notice that his build is modified when he is playing against either well-rounded or homogenous team comps, indicating you shouldn't choose the same Brand build every round of League of Legends

The most essential items to include in your champ's build are: Liandry's Anguish, Shard of True Ice, and Shadowflame. Players who added these items in their builds had a higher win rate than those who utilized other Brand builds. Moreover, if you are playing a mixed enemy team comp, you should really consider grabbing yourself the Domination, and Precision runes. In recent games, he won the greatest fraction of his rounds when equipped with these runes.
