FAQs About Braum

What are the greatest strengths of Braum in LoL?

Braum is a great protector. More than most other supports, he can do a great job of protecting his ADC. Braum's W lets him jump to his ally and buff them. When he gets there, he can shield them from projectile damage. This buff scales with his armor, so add lots of armor into your Braum build. One of Braum's other strengths is his passive that lets him stun other champions. This is best when combined with ADCs with good attack speed, so stay close to your ADC.

What is Braum's greatest weakness?

Braum has very few damaging abilities and is relatively weak when alone. Don't try to build Braum with a lot of AD or AP to compensate. Additionally, because his Q can be blocked or dodged so easily, he has little poke. It's best to stick with defense when playing Braum.
