Guide to Countering Brand as Taric

Tips for Playing as Taric against Brand

Using Starlight's Touch at lower charges makes its healing less Mana efficient, but can greatly increase Taric's sustained damage via Bravado.

Rather than saving Cosmic Radiance for the last moment and risking someone dying during the delay, it can be more beneficial to cast it as soon as you know a teamfight is guaranteed to start.

The cooldown reducing component of Bravado makes Cooldown Reduction items like Frozen Heart, Iceborn Gauntlet, and Spirit Visage exceptionally powerful on Taric.

Advice to Win Against Brand

Brand must land an ability before his combo is able to get started. Dodging his Sear or Pillar of Flame will disrupt his rhythm.

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's passive allows him to excel against teams that cluster together. Be sure to split up against him.
