Guide to Countering Brand as Elise

Tips for Playing as Elise against Brand

Elise's Spider Form and Spider Form abilities do not cost mana and can be prioritized when you are trying to conserve mana.

When in Spider Form, Spiderlings will attack the target that Elise uses Venomous Bite on.

Spider Form is most effective at finishing off enemies with low health; Human Form's Neurotoxin does more damage to healthy foes.

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.
