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 Vi

Vi cannot be stopped while using her ult. Remember to save your displacement effects until after she's done charging.

Vi will shred your Armor and gain Attack Speed if she manages to hit you three times in a row. Try not to engage in extended brawls with her.
