Tips for Playing as Aatrox against Brand

Use Umbral Dash while casting The Darkin Blade to increase your chances of hitting the enemy.

Cast World Ender when you are sure you can force a fight.

Crowd Control abilities like Infernal Chains or your allies' immobilizing effects will help you set up The Darkin Blade.

Brand must land an ability before his combo is able to get started. Dodging his Sear or Pillar of Flame will disrupt his rhythm.

Brand's passive allows him to excel against teams that cluster together. Be sure to split up against him.
