“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.”
“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. ”
“We outrange this champion and deny him the opportunity for a full combo.
Avoid w by weaving in and out of range. As long as you avoid the Q, you're safe.
Free lane, free scale.”
“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 ”
“Your w blocks his explosion (passive) but not his fire, get hextech protobelt and level 6 as soon as possible”
“Brand is a decently heavy poke matchup, but barely has any kill pressure on you without mistakes. Relax and scale, don't all-in him since it gives him a free combo. Take the Resolve page and MR.”
“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).”
“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. ”
“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.”
“You might get poked, but you can cast spells while moving making it extremely difficult for brand to land a full combination.
If you're capable of landing a Q/E in this match up it's a guaranteed kill.
Remain off-center from minion wave and try to avoid unnecessary damage before all-inning after a few short trades. Brand has no mobility either :)
