FAQs About Brand

When should I use Brand's Ultimate?

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.

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

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.

What is Brand's greatest strength?

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.

What is Brand's biggest weakness?

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.
