Tips Against Brand in Bottom Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
Jovy says “Brand is squishy and he will have a hard time interrupting your ult (he needs to hit you twice before he can stun you), but outside of that is very hard to deal with because he does major damage.”
IHaveNoName says “Squishy, high range, may deal a lot.
If done right, he's an easy target especially on free terrain with zero friendly units. Avoid his Q under all circumstances. Buy scimitar when in doubt.”
Vapora Dark says “Brand is a skill match depending on the Brand's skill. If he lands his W's and Q's he can solo carry as his damage is absurd and his CC is incredible. If he misses either his Q or W his damage and CC fall VERY quickly as his Q is his only CC, and early game his W is his poke ability, missing either messes him up. Dodging W is pretty easy once you get boots and dodgind Q is even easier. Make sure to NEVER be hit by a Q if you're ablaze, otherwise he can one shot you. He is a high damage support and can wreck you if you're not careful. Play footsies with him and keep the brush he's sitting in warded so you can have more reliably information on his distance of his spells. ”
FunkyJack says “I'm going to use brad to represent poke champions.
Poke champs are annoying but senna has a good amount of sustain, if you don't act stupid you won't die because you can sustain yourself with q and biscuits.”
Terrific says “Either in Even threat level or Major. It really depends if the Brand can hit his abilities. Care for his Q stun and also for his 3rd ability on you because he will be able to proc his passive that way it is basically another free ability DMG on you.
Do not stack on eachother if he ults or has ult up if he plays well he can win an entire teamfight because you guys stack on eachother.”
ShroudedBRH says “Brands kit allows him to deal a lot of damage against you without many items you literally just have to dodge everything he throws at you. Avoid staying clumped past level 6 when he has ult”
Bebras19 says “Squishy, high range, may deal a lot. If done right, he's an easy target especially on free terrain with zero friendly units. Avoid his Q under all circumstances. Buy scimitar when in doubt.”
mhsmhs123 says “Not really against Brand ADC, but against Brand support, Vayne can really be pushed behind. Brand's ability to push Vayne back and deal damage to her really are hard to counter since Vayne's attack range is short. Because of this, Brand support counters Vayne pretty hard in the early game”
mads803k says “pretty damm strong at first, but later on u can two tap him, but still watch out for his fire and "R". *DANGER* Doing early game he will poke at all times and doing late game he will kill with the pokes. But he has a semi low hp so you can take him on with you're support.”
ELMallekZarzor says “If W hits minions, casting
E can spread to enemies around the target, so avoid standing close to your wave. Move away from teammates if you have 3 stacks of Blaze, as the explosion is AoE.All-in potential at lvl 3 with full stun combo rotation and at lvl 6 where his R makes it super easy for him .but Low mobility champion. Let him push in and call for a gank.
and CDs pretty high early on, so good windows to trade after he uses his combos.”
SmoreEater says “Honestly try to get your support to ban this Support every time unless you have a Yuumi as your support. The reason why this guy is so dangerous is because when you are rushing in, you have to take in mind that back-line minions will aggro onto you, and Brand can stun you and light you on fire, making him a bad threat to go against he can easily counter you like this.”
Shake the Shade says “Brand is ridiculously strong and can kill pretty much any adc without help of his own adc. That being said if you dodge his stuff and engage when he's on cooldown he's pretty easy to kill”
Xerxes Is ADC says “Get dorans shield for this man, he's scary if you're in the open so just stand behind ranged minions and have ur support him out, but prepare for brand to engage on your support in that, u all in brand along with ur support. ”
L U C I 4 N says “Brand can stun Lucian which it makes harder to do plays against them. To win against this champion you must first lure out his stun then either stun brand with your support or focus him. To dodge his stun u can e to the side and follow your combo.”

Tips Against Brand in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
ChaseMorePlz says “Try not to get combo'd by him, will result in you getting stunned and bursted down. Dangerous champion when ahead, grabbing a Banshees versus him or Mercury Treads is very effective.”
Ambient12 says “This is the only support I would consider rushing a Hexdrinker against, because he can easily out damage his adc if he decides to push a Frost Queen's Claim. Hide in minions to avoid the devastating 2 second stun. He's pretty squishy and easy to nuke, so kill him before he can kill you. If he isn't landing skill shots and you feel confident, you can proceed with your normal build.”
StrangeRune says “Easy kill, often builds HP with Rylai's and Liandry's so get Razor if you're concerned. If you shield something he can't combo off it. You can easily prevent a stun or a lot of damage this way. He can still kill you if you mess up though. Edge makes you impossible for him.”
New Player says “High damage abilities and decent waveclear.
He might not do much damage on you if you have Adaptive Helm or just enough health and resists in general, but can be a problem against your team.”

Tips Against Brand in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
Polarshift says “Outdamages you, but you can easily setup a gank for your jungler. If you dodge his Q pre-6 you can get close, otherwise not. Remember that his R counts as a third stack too. His passive is actually dodgeable with your ult if you havent been stunned by his Q. I don't remember the timing, but I think you have to predict it and use it just before his passive applies to you.”
Yeager says “His range can be quite annoying but luckily his main poke (Q and W) are skillshots. Rush tier 2 boots(Mercs) right after lost chapter and this lane will be easy. Brand usually builds rylais chapter and liandries because of its synergy with the passive, so you will be hit by slows into stuns during fights. Mercs helps with that, but if it isn't enough, then cleanse is. ”
Drewmatth Taliyah says “Start Doran + 2 Pots if 1) You think you can outplay her and hit your W's to generate a kill at levels 3-5 or 2) You think she will burst you down post 6 (get an extra ring).
Start Corrupting if you think you will not hit your W's (or you will get poked down) and you rely more on wave clear/spammy poke (you will be way more squisher but more durable -- this is recommended if you are sure you will not get hit by CC spells and instantly die).
Relatively easy matchup but you can still be killed if he hits his stun. Predict that and go for the kill. Roam if you cannot kill him but push your lane first. Stay away from minions when he casts R (or teammates, of course).”
Yeager says “He does have the range advantage, but your waveclear is better when you have the hex core. Rush boots early to dodge his skillshots and focus on farming. Stay away from your minions, else he will spread his passive onto you. ”
Sylvan Lore says “Brand is a matchup very similar to Ahri in your early trading. He has good range and you want to make sure that when he is poking with his W that he is forced to make the decision between pushing the wave and damaging you. At the same time though, standing beside your wave leaves you at threat for a stun which is in almost all cases a lost trade. If you ever find yourself in a 1v1 without a wave nearby after level 6 it is possible to win, but in generally he out damages you. You will out-scale him with utility and a bunch of other advantages, but should your team clump poorly he can destroy a teamfight. Barrier can be good if you feel afraid in this matchup but I also think his kill pressure isn't so high that teleport isn't an option. Merc treads or Banshee's Veil work if you do fall behind and are struggling to hold your own against him. ”
sweodigaming says “This match-up is in brand favor, he is a lane bully, has better range of his abilities than Annie. Do care since his all-ins are also really strong. Ask for ganks to get ahead, I would also suggest buying banshee's veil somewhere in the game.”
FalleN3 says “It's important that you dodge his skill shots as if you dont, he will hurt you a LOT. Celerity is a good option against Brand and you can also go for a boots start instead of Dorans Ring. Consider going for a ROA in this match-up and if the enemy team-comp allows, a Zhonya's Hourglass can go a long way for saving your life multiple times. Be careful of his ultimate bouncing between you and your team-mates during ganks / skirmishes and team-fights. If he gets ahead of you by a few kills, you can be in for a touch time.”
FalleN3 says “Brand out ranges you quiet a bit which will make it difficult for you to harass him. He will do insane damage to you with his combo, and I mean INSANE damage.
You can stand behind minions to block his stun (Q)
Try to avoid his spells and farm as much as you can until you hit level 6.
Be careful with Tibbers as standing beside him during Brands ulti will result in you getting hit multiple times.”
Scyrine says “he can do a lot of damage to you before level 3, but after that you should be quick enough to dodge his skillshots and pick an easy kill on him. I almost never lose this matchup, just play smart. ”
Yasukeh says “Try to stay away from minions so that he can't clear minions at the same time he is harrassing you. Once you get tiamat, you can often tank his stun with your spin and all in him. If he misses his stun, he has no way of stopping you from running him down. ”
FalleN3 says “Brand is very squishy but he will do a LOT of damage to you if he manages to land his combo. It is possible to stand behind minions to block his (Q). You can use your (E) in order to leap over his ultimate and stop it from moving to other targets. Try to out-roam him pre 6 and after level 6 he should be much easier to 100-0. Try to avoid his spells as much as you can and farm/out-roam until level 6”
Dr Eggmund says “Hate this champion with my entire soul oh my lord. Your main priority is to avoid his combo at all costs this means his BS Aoe attack and his stun. I suggest playing passive against him and all-ining this piece of crap when you get a gank or if you get level 6 before him. You can do what i do sometimes and just play like a wuss till late game and destroy him either works ”
Fuzzmonkey says “Leblanc struggles a little bit since her revert. With Brand he can ult you and it will bounce between you and your passive clone(once he gets you low enough), so make sure to steer your clone away from yourself to avoid the bounce damage. Other than that, avoid his Q stun and you should be able to deal with him.”
Yuki H. says “Heavily dependent on how well you can dodge Brand's skillshots. After his entire spell rotation, you can look for a quick trade with W, and can even W in if, and only if, the enemy team will NOT come to reinforce Brand. ”
BloooodTV says “D-Blade. Brand is one of those matchups that seem easy on paper, but can get hard in game. His combo can easily drop to you half and if you stay his jungler can finish you off. If you get any sort of lead shove it down his throat, deny him cs, and constantly trade. Outscales you. Take Fleet or Conq (Depends on team comp).”
FalleN3 says “Brand is very squishy but he will do a LOT of damage to you if he manages to land his combo. It's possible to stand behind minions to block his (Q). Try to avoid his spells as much as you can and farm until level 6. He is easy picking for you once you have your ultimate!”
Akali187 says “You destroy him with one combo. Care for his stun and ult. Use your E to dodge his stun while simultaneously landing your E on him, than continue with your combo. If he is fed all it takes is one ability and you will be vulnerable as Akali is Squishy.”
Coldsong says “Brand is rarely picked mid, but he is still a pretty good counter to Talon. His damage is really hard to handle even with hexdrinker and his passive + Q will destroy you. Make sure to roam often and do not stand near minions when he ults.”
elnino9 says “Learn to avoid his abilities. Dodge his W and you will be alright as this is his highest damaging spell and it is what he will max. Starting boots here helps to avoid his skillshots. Careful when getting hit by his E engulf. He can set ablaze minions to poke this way, don't get too close. Get aggressive if his abilities are on CD. The most important ability to avoid is his Q as it stuns when you're ablaze. He's very squishy and immobile, take advantage.”
Veralion says “HoB/beads. Almost always goes support nowadays, shouldn’t be too bad, but he does tons of damage and can be very unforgiving. Save W to yeet out of his pillar and never get EQ’d and you’re good. Be careful when walking up for farm, as a good Brand will put his pillar down right in your path expecting you to run into it. Feint walking up and bait it out beforehand if possible; that ability seriously hurts. I’m pretty sure he just explodes you instantly if you ult on top of him at 6 out of the blue, let him stun you, and guarantee him a full combo, so don’t do that. Wait for him to use spells on the wave (especially E, his EQW combo is what makes him truly dangerous), then charge him and R when you’re too close to miss. He has no mobility; you will easily catch and absolutely melt him. If your jungler swings by and lands some CC, you will kill him before it expires. ”
Tauricus2017 says “His damage hits you hard If you won't dodge his skillshots. When his Sear (Q) is on cooldown you should be OK engaging as he won't be able to stop you really. Play safe, consider buying a Corrupting potion and time your engages properly.”
Frixen says “Brand is immobile, mana hungry, easy to dodge abilities, as well as less wave clear than TF, while not being able to keep up with your roams one bit. Just look to push out, and roam. Don't take all-in fights against him, and you should be fin”
TheCatOfCheshire says “The early laning phase is a bit hard because he got more dmg than you and he can poke you quite easily. If you can land a charm you get the upper hand, if not he got it. You're better than him to roam so take advantage of that. To engage him, use your R to dodge his flame column, then engage him asap.”
Zoe Sparklepop says “Low Major
He outranges you and out-trades you as long as he hits all abilities.
You can't exactly win this lane alone unless you're just better, you'll have to ask jungler to help you get ahead and you can win.”
Mpegial says “Brand can be very powerful in a team fight because he can damage everyone without trying to much, so I would suggest either shutting him down fast or shutting down his bot lane preferably.”
AZIR MEN says “Try to dodge his W, it's his main source of damage. If you have been lit a blaze, try to dodge his Q. If it hits you, it'll stun you. Play aggro if his Q is off cooldown. Taking tier 2 boots first is a good idea.
Take conq/comet with taste of blood secondary.”
PepeOnDrugs says “Brand is very squishy but he will do a LOT of damage to you if he manages to land his combo. It's possible to stand behind minions to block his (Q). Try to avoid his spells as much as you can and farm until level 6. He is easy picking for you once you have your ultimate!
Ekko Rush B Guides says “Brand's only ability that will guarantee a full spell rotation is his Q. Dodge that and he won't have any way to defend himself. And even if he somehow hits you with every ability, you can easily negate his passive with your ult. If he uses W+E to push the minion wave you should instantly jump on him, because then has no way of stunning you besides wasting his ultimate.”
audiboo says “All I can say is try to dodge his abilities and also try to build magic resist.
Brand can counter Neeko by most of his abilities, she is a very squishy champion and when he lands his abilities, he casts the burning effect.”
Gageowago says “Just keep moving to constantly be ready to dodge his skillshots as that is his only way to do damage. Be very careful about his e q w combo however as he can insta-stun you and follow it up with a passive explosion.”
Noodles912 says “Cancer lane before level 6. If you get hit by his abilities, Q can soak a bit of the after burn. This matchup requires good skillshot dodging, so its up to you to win. You outscale hard.”
Lil Tidepod says “Brand can do a lot of damage, but should only be able to kill you early in the game unless he's fed. Your shield will negate a lot of his damage once you pop it during your combo. Simply push him under turret and look for roams, or if he's low get a dive from your jungler right after you bait out his stun.”
serruh says “Good amount of early damage, can be a bit dodgy if you get hit by a lot of his abilities in the first few levels. but as a lot of matchups, you can get mercs and not really lose anything, which makes it a lot easier. idk, havent really played it in a while”
Noodles912 says “Poke is all about him. Save E for his stuns, and Q on him when he uses his W. You then beat him easily. Watch out for his strong poke. It is ok to use E to dodge his W if it is needed. After 6, save E for his ult, and Q to dodge his abilities instead. Look for burst trades.”
RockitoAhri says “His W is challenging to sidestep if the Brand is capable. If you feel you are having difficulties sidestepping it, play it safe until LVL 6. After that you win every all in. Fight away from minions(to avoid his ult bouncing), keep a charge of your ult for sidestepping his W/Q. ”
RockitoAhri says “Can be difficult pre. 6. Try to farm it out. He ends up pushing lane most of the times so its beneficial to just wait for a gank until you reach LVL6. Afterwards you are free to all in after a max range Q hit. You win. ”
theboywhodominatedaplat says “he will poke you alot and his stun will destroy you
try to dodge and bait his skills and once he has no Q all in him
when he decides to R get away from your minions as far as possible.
G7_Zeke says “Brand, along with every other ADC, are pretty strong early game. So, if you get Brand as your matchup, just chill, and don't trade with him until you hit level six, and then you can all in him no problem.”
TheSpark says “You guys will be poking each other, and whoever lands their cc on the other will kill them. Cleanse is good in this matchup, he has a little less range than you so try and take advantage of that.”
EvilBird090 says “Brand is like Ahri, a lot of skillshots, don't forget to pool his stun, after that you should be gucci. Look to all in him after 6 since he is immobile. If confident push him under turret, poke him when he goes for CS and when half HP, engage on him under tower.”
Cloud375 says “His abilities hurt and have a longer range than your's do. No more explaining needed. If you reach the point where you have enough items, you can beat him fairly easily, but the question is if you can make it out of laning phase and if the Brand is fed or not.”
Novok says “His W is challenging to sidestep if the Brand is capable. If you feel you are having difficulties sidestepping it, play it safe until LVL 6. After that you win every all in. Fight away from minions(to avoid his ult bouncing and his e spreading), keep a charge of your ult for sidestepping his W/Q. ”
baldmidget says “A mage with skillshots omegalul
1 Make sure to wiggle entire laning phase to make him use ability
2. Every time brand use his w on the wave(jump on him,murder him)
3.At level 6 + just kill him on sight”
Chromuro says “Another rare matchup, is one of the worst. If you learn to dodge every single skill he casts, then you can knock down the difficulty of the matchup to a solid 3-4, in any other case try to farm and pray that he doesn't get feeded.”
Fox1ne says “Match-up is pretty easy since he has one skill shot and let's say another one with W,so his kit mostly depends on his passive and q stun,most good brand mains going E - q combo but still the only thing you have to watch out is his q and you'll be safe. After 6 you melt him easily.”
Vispectra says “Although once you hit 6 this lane should be rather simple , his pre-6 kill pressure is very much a threat to you as he does a whooping amount of damage and is rather easy to land his abilities onto you. ”
talonmains says “He will poke you out of lane and he can burst you very fast, care for his q since the stun lasts very long and try to dodge Brand's W it does a lot of damage. When you see him wasting q you can go for all in”
ClemexD10 says “I personally hate this champ going ADC, but don't worry, against him, you will need to dodge his W when he is poking and, once you hit lvl 6, go ahead, far away from your minions so his R don't hits you more. You MUST dodge his Q if you are burned, since if he hits it he will make you a roasted fox in just 2 secs.”
kilgta says “You should be fine into him. He will try to poke you a lot. Farm when your shield is up. He is one of the hardest champion at level 1 and 2. You just have to accept that you farm under tower if he lands his abilities on you. He can allin you at level 2 if you take too much damage. If the brand in front of you doesnt harass you level 1 to 3, work towards killing him, he is a bad brand. Start corrupt pot or sapphire if hes not a good brand (low amount of games on the champ)”
unownreality says “he has just as much damage on you. More of a skill match-up. Watch for pillar and hard engage if you see Brand miss his stun, or 2 back to back abilities. Long term trades are required. He burns through mana pretty fast (pun intended)”
MechaaZero says “In my opinion this is a free line. He has to go in the open to land his skillshots if you play the wave right, so landing your E into a Q or an R,Q for massive damage becomes really easy.”
CC Diana says “As a completely immobile and squishy champion, Brand can be an easy lane for Diana if you play smart. Brand's stun is incredibly telegraphed as it travels in a straight line so treat it like how you would treat Blitzcrank hooks and stand behind minions if you are set ablaze. Even if Brand misses his W, Pillar of Flame he can still easily stun you with an EQ combo so don't dive in recklessly. Brand players will often opt for Rod of Ages or Abyssal Mask as their mana item which can make killing them extremely difficult. If this happens to be the case - push the wave in and roam.”
RagexAddict says “Much like Annie and Ahri, Brand is more of a skill matchup for Fizz. The key is to avoid his Q at all costs, especially if he has previously hit you with his W, E, or R abilities as this will stun you and open you up to a full combo from him. The best way to take him on is to hold your E for as long as you possibly can. When he throws his ult at you or your minion wave, use your E when it's traveling towards you. It may take some good timing in order to dodge it, but if you do, the ultimate bounce will end and it will be on a full CD. This will allow you to counter attack with ease.”
SrSuders says “Brand kann schon schwierig werden, jenachdem wie die Skillshots sitzen.
Cleanse ist meiner Meinung nach nicht sinnvoll, da man der Brand Q gut ausweichen kann, demnach ist es nur notwendig, wenn der gegnerische Jungler/Supporter einen guten/starken Stun mit sich nimmt.”
LyndonK9 says “Do your best to dodge his W, It's a skill based match up who lands more skill shots, but it's easier for him since his W is AOE. Don't stand next to your teammates when he ults but I didn't need to tell you that...”
Yenwai says “his area spells make popping your passive easy for him and his DOTs deal damage through it, hes not an imposible match up but a hard one never the less. rushing boots to dodge his abilities and he should be manageable.
use your teleport to gank while he farms and help your team as you wont win lane easily.”
borsamalac says “Dodge his W and you are fine. Get hexdrinker after trinity. After trinity dodge his Q with W and u can kill him. Hardest thing in this matchup is if u cant dodge his W/combos at early game. ”
YourBestSenpai says “Depends if you can dodge his skills easily. If he gets a stun on you with q, you are pretty much dead, no question about it. But also, he has no way of escaping if you hit your charm and except for cleanse and flash, just look out for his poke.”
Helnakensbrorsa says “Farm with Q and try not to push. Dodge his Q and E and don't get stunned. You are probably dead if he hits his combo on you. After 6 you can only kill him if you dodge his stun. If you R forward and he hits you, you're dead. ”
BicBee says “Stay away from minions and other people when Brand ults because it'll bounce. It's hard to predict when and where he'll use his W (circle thing) so if you're having a hard time stay away from the minions and make him choose to CS with the skill or harass. Wait till 6 if you want to solo him. Shoving lane and roaming would be a good option as well. ”
BicBee says “Keep your ball forward to limit his movement. Stay away from minions and other people when Brand ults because it'll bounce. It's hard to predict when and where he'll use his W (circle thing) so if you're having a hard time stay away from the minions and make him choose to CS with the skill or harass. Wait till 6 if you want to solo him. Shoving lane and roaming would be a good option as well.”
AzureArmatt says “You don't see him often on mid lane these days but he's still champion that's a midlaner. His kit focus on applying debuff on his target for extra effects and trying to land 3 abilities in order to get extra damage from passive. His passive is simply mini ignite that will deal magic damage over time. While you are "burning" if brand hits his abilities on you they will receive bonuses (Q will stun you, W will deal more damage and E will set more target ablaze next to you. if brand stack this passive on you up to 3 stacks circle will appear around you, that's an area of explosion that will deal damage to the targets next to you so don't stay close to your teammates when having that on you. You can win against brand when you buy Magic resist (banshe's veil is good paired with mercury's treads to reduce stuns) and don't let yourself being hit by his abilities too much (they have long delays). if you manage to do just that it's easy win”
OmegaSquadVeigar says “As long as you dodge his Q and W you should be fine and just beat him due to him having about the same range as you do.
Avoid getting close to other teammates in teamfights due to his huge AoE damage.
You should be able to win against him without much trouble due to being able to just burst him if he gets close.”
Enfurnal says “Brand stuns if he ignites you with his abilities and Qs so don't get hit. Three abilities hit by him you will have an AOE ring damage around you so don't go near your teammates or they will hate you and SPAM question mark pings at you.”
thedonk says “Avoid getting stunned by his E, as well as dodge all of his skillshots. He wouldn't be much of a problem if it wasn't for the interaction of your clone and his R. If he ults, you go under 40% hp and your clone will spawn and it will bounce back and forth between you two.”
Padrepio says “You cannot damage a fire elemental with fire spells and AA!
Ok, no, that's a joke, actually your spells deal a lot of damage to an enemy Brand, but you're not supposed to face him in lane.”
Valor_Chaos says “certainly annoying, but if he burns his q early then just walk up and hit him. He wont do shit to you. Once you get 6 you can melt him with passive and ult if you need to. A safer solution is to wait till 11 but thats true for everyone”
overweight_zoe says “Not very scary for zoe if you're decent at dodging abilities. Stronger wave clear and mobility will help you shut him down. Deep wards are your friends as you can easily one shot Brand crossing through the jungle.”
apsonalol says “Começa com bota e desvia das suas skill shots, procure sempre pokear ele depois de usar o W é a única skill que incomoda muito, brand tem um problema é que no lvl 6 ele não precisa acerta nada em você, só o E e R, as 2 são target então, fica complicado, mas se você tiver um bom inicio de jogo e tirar ele da lane várias vezes, você ganhará a match up.”
moutenn says “You have to be fast on your feet. Bait him to waste his w, by acting like you are gonna take a minion, and back of before you hit it. (If he times it to hit you when you try and get a minion, just let the minion go. There is no reason to lose 1/3 of your hp for it.) An easy way to kill most brands, is to send out your combo (w-e-q). His instict will tell him to get returndamage on you. Reactivate your w and start going on him. He will have nothing left to do against you (unless he stand with minions and you get hit by his r over and over again.) If you just go for him (r first) prioritize to juke his q. The stun allows him, to get a full combo on you - you will die. If you are not confident you can go hexdrinker. (Dont build in to Maw until way later. There is no reason to because you just want the effect of hexdrinker.)
LCAU says “This is a poke lane. You have to dodge everything and try to survive the lane. Remember it's not worth getting 1 CS and losing half your health. Start Dark Seal if confident. If not, go Doran's Shield.”
ThePhantomPsychic says “Brand mid LOL. but seriously, his spells hurt a lot, and since they punish you for standing close to your teammates, and your w rewards you for standing close, it really just screws you over.”
Sozzoh says “Brand has more zoning and poke in the early game, so be a bit careful in lane. If you can, push lane as hard as you can and negate farm from Brand by either zoning him off or poking him. Brand has no mobility, and is very mana hungry in the early game, so while still being careful, poke him from a distance. Don't clump in teamfights near brand, or else he'll unleash his full combo and obliterate your entire team.”
iiCrispi says “Very effective against Pyke, if he can land a full combo, your dead or you'll be forced to recall losing cs and exp. Try to make efficient trades against him. Ask for ganks when possible.”
DuhBrandon says “since this champ is pretty braindead you will have some problems. Especially with his massive poking abilities and combos. If he hits a W or a E on you just run and try and dodge his Q.”
Canttouchthis123 says “Aftershock makes your all in against brand much safer however expect to be forced out of lane alot pre 6. If the game is allowed to continue into late game brand will be much more useful in teamfights sooooo...”
