Is Brand better when played alongside Kalista?

There is no universally accepted best synergy for Brand that will always be his best teammate. Yet, overall, Kalista is a terrible teammate for Brand. By locking into the same side as Brand, she drops their win rate by -3.2% to 48.9%. This shows that there is a terrible synergy between Brand and Kalista that allows them to perform not as well together than without each other.

Kalista has a greater difficulty than Brand. That means you should be cautious when finding Kalista allies to play with, as they will require a greater level of skill to be able to fight well with you.

When playing on the same side, you should expect to see an overall large increase in your team’s capability to deal magic damage. When paired, these two are able to dish out a surprising amount of magic type damage.

Conversely, by bringing Brand and Kalista together, you will not be giving your side very much cover. We recommend you bring other champions on your team that offsets this relative disparity in this pairing's kit.

Regardless of your Kalista ally's ability, you need to focus on increasing your income, warding to avoid ambushes, and taking down objectives. If you do this, you will do well anyway.
