LoL: Wild Rift Brand Champion Guide: Best build, items, and everything you need to know

Brand, the Burning Vengeance, is our next Wild Rift champion to receive full coverage. He is, just like Morgana, one of the few champions that can fit right into multiple roles and deliver exceptionally. No matter how you play, though, you want to make sure that you always build AP on Brand, because he will do tons of damage. 

Although most people play Brand as a solo queue support character (because of his insane damage and ability to scale well into the late game), he is pretty good in the middle lane too. Of course, because he is rather slow and immobile, Brand will be prone to dying to assassins and other all-in champions quite a lot. That's why it's recommended to always pick him as a counter, and not blind pick. 

In this League of Legends: Wild Rift Brand guide you'll find everything you need to know about the champion, from his skills and how to allocate them to his build, skill combo, and runes. This is what you will find in the Brand guide below:

Brand skills

League of Legends: Wild Rift Brand's skills:

Blaze (Passive)

Brand's spells light his targets ablaze, dealing damage over 1 seconds, stacking up to 2 times. If Brand kills an enemy while it is ablaze he regains mana. When Blaze reaches max stacks on a Champion or large monster, it becomes unstable. It detonates in 3 seconds, applying spell effects and dealing massive damage in an area around the victim.

Sear (Skill 1)

Launches a projectile that stops on the first enemy hit, dealing damage and applying a stack of Brand’s passive. If the target was previously afflicted by Brand’s passive they are also briefly stunned.

Pillar of Flame (Skill 2)

After a short delay, Brand creates a Pillar of Flame at a target area, dealing magic damage to enemy units within the area.

Conflagration (Skill 3)

Brand conjures a powerful blast at his target that spreads to nearby enemies, dealing magic damage. If the target is ablaze, Conflagration's spread is doubled.

Pyroclasm (Skill 4 / Ultimate)

Launches a projectile that travels to the target, dealing damage and applying a stack of Brand’s passive. The projectile will then bounce to a nearby target. The skill doesn't damage Brand.

How to combo as Brand in Wild Rift:

There are several combos for Brand, depending on the situation: 

- Skill 3 -> Skill 1 -> Skill 2

This is Brand's main combo - with this, you will instantly proc his Passive, as well as dealing damage to the opponent. You want to cast this in every straight-up trade, or situation where you have to face an enemy head-on (since with Skill 1 you will stun the enemy), and then once you hit Skill 2, the Passive will activate dealing even more damage over time.

- Skill 3 -> Skill 4 (Ultimate) -> Skill 1 -> Skill 2 

Another great combo for Brand, but this time viable for most team fights. Since the Ultimate skill automatically procs the Passive (it stacks up) even if you use it against 2 people, you can probably still end up killing both - even in 1v2 situations. 

- Bounce the Skill 3 off minions to trade in lane

If you hit Skill 1 or Skill 2 on the minion wave and then cast Skill 3 while an opponent is behind the minions, the passive and Skill 3 will spread to the enemy. It's a nice little poke damage that doesn't require you to aim your skills, just point and click.

Wild Rift Brand - In what order to level up the skills?

For Brand, no matter if you are support or mage, you want to max your Skill 2 first, then Skill 1, and finally Skill 3. 

  • Level 1: Skill 2
  • Level 2: Skill 1
  • Level 3: Skill 3
  • Level 4: Skill 2
  • Level 5: Skill 4
  • Level 6: Skill 2
  • Level 7: Skill 2

Keep leveling Skill 2 until it's maxed, then focus on Skill 1, and lastly on Skill 3. Don't forget to keep adding 1 point into your Skill 4 (ultimate) whenever possible.
