Guide to Countering Azir as Braum

Tips for Playing as Braum against Azir

Work with your allies to stack Concussive Blows, encourage them to basic attack marked targets.

Leap in front of squishy friends and shield them from projectiles with Unbreakable.

Glacial Fissure leaves a powerful slow zone, position it well to split teamfights and slow the enemy approach.

Advice to Win Against Azir

Try to think of Sand Soldiers as fire. Don't stand in the fire.

Azir relies on his soldiers to deal damage and can only move them so often. Try to capitalize on windows of time when his soldiers are stationary.

Azir has immense damage over a prolonged amount of time but lacks the upfront burst of other mages. Try to burst him out before he can turn a confrontation around.
