Guide to Countering LeBlanc as Brand

Tips for Playing as Brand against LeBlanc

You can deter enemies from standing near their minions by setting them ablaze, due to Conflagration.

Pyroclasm bounces randomly between enemies, so try to cast it on a small group of enemies if you want to hit the same target multiple times.

You can use Brand's abilities in a variety of combinations to maximize his damage in different situations.

Advice to Win Against LeBlanc

Attacking LeBlanc first avoids most of her tricks, especially if she's recently used her dash, Distortion.

Stunning or silencing LeBlanc will prevent her from activating the return part of Distortion.

LeBlanc's ultimate can create fake LeBlancs during her spellcast or, rarely, at a distant position.

The fake LeBlanc created at a distance will always run at the nearest Champion, cast a harmless spell, then immediately disappear.
