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.”
Wanted Dead or Alive - MF ADC by Jovy | Miss Fortune Player
PH45 says “Annoying poke and you can't really outdamage him early. Just farm up and see if your supp or jungler can get a good engage on the enemy.”
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. ”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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. ”
Yeager's Master Orianna guide by Yeager | Orianna Player
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. ”
Yeager's Master Viktor Guide by Yeager | Viktor Player
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. ”

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.

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.”

Dominate Mid as Rumble by Midlane God | Rumble Player
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. ”

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.”

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. ”

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.”
klsahdklashd by OmegaSquadVeigar | Veigar Player

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.”

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”
Kayle, the Auto Attacker by Valor_Chaos | Kayle Player
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.”

Annie from bronze by Filthyrich | Annie Player
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.) ”

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.”
