Guide to Countering Brand as Diana

Tips for Playing as Diana against Brand

Consider when to cast Lunar Rush without Moonlight and when to wait for another Crescent Strike.

Landing Crescent Strike is critically important, but don't be afraid to miss. The cooldown is short and the mana cost is low.

Use Moonfall and Lunar Rush to stay on targets and activate Moonsilver Blade for extra damage.

Advice to Win Against Brand

Try to move away from allies when you see Pyroclasm being cast. The initial missile speed is slow, which should give your team time to react.

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.
