LoL Wild Rift Brand build guide – Best runes, skills, combos, & items

Scorch down your enemies!

Brand, the Burning Vengeance, is a mage who dominates tight ganks thanks to his skills and passive. He deals massive burst damage to isolated targets and has immense crowd control abilities. Combine those with an AP heavy build, and you'll have yourself a late-game mage who can absolutely vaporize their targets in seconds.

Brand is most commonly played as a mid-lane mage or a dragon-lane support. He has a lot of poke damage to keep enemies at bay, and this makes him a strong contender for the laning phase. However, Brand falls short when it comes to mobility and is prone to getting ganked in the early game. Therefore, we recommend picking Brand as a counter instead of going with a blind pick.

Brand's Skills

Passive: Blaze

Brand's abilities set enemies Ablaze, dealing a percentage of their max Health as magic damage over a short period. Stacking Ablaze three times on champions and large monsters causes them to detonate after a couple of seconds, dealing 10% of each nearby enemies' max Health as magic damage.

Ability 1: Sear

Launches a fireball that deals 80 magic damage to the first enemy hit. This ability can stun enemies if they are already set Ablaze. Hence, we recommend using this ability as a follow-up attack.

Ability 2: Pillar of Flame

After a short delay, Brand creates a Pillar of Flame at a target area, dealing magic damage to enemy units within the area. This ability deals 30% more damage to enemies that are Ablaze.

Ability 3: Conflagration

Brand conjures a powerful blast at his target that spreads to nearby enemies, dealing magic damage. If the target is Ablaze, Conflagration's area of spread is increased. This is not a skill shot and is the most ideal ability to start a fight with.

Ultimate: Pyroclasm

Brand releases a torrent of flame that bounces five times between enemies and himself. If the target is already Ablaze, it slows them briefly. We recommend saving this ability for a large gank instead of using it on a 1v1 duel.

Best Brand Skill Combos

Combo 1: Ability 3 > Ability 1 > Ability 2

This combo is Brand's bread and butter. His third ability is not a skill shot and is bound to hit the target and set them Ablaze. Follow it up with his first ability, Sear, to stun them, then finish them off with his third ability.

Combo 2: Ability 3 > Ultimate > Ability 1 > Ability 2

This combo is a solid option for when enemies are close to each other or in a gank. Using the Ultimate early on, ensures that it bounces to as many enemies as possible. Follow it up with the other abilities to deal massive burst damage.

Best Brand Item Builds

Brand scales primarily with ability power items, as his main source of damage is his abilities. Luden's Echo is a great first item, as it gives bonus AP, cooldown, and max mana. Liandry's Torment scales well with his passive and boosts crowd control potential. For boots, the ideal pick is Ionian Boots of Lucidity, for cooldown. For boot Enchantment, pick up the Stasis Enchantment for late-game ganks.

Best Spells for Brand

  • Flash: A must-have spell for Brand, as it adds that extra bit of mobility that is lacking in his default kit.
  • Ignite: Ignite works in perfect tandem with Brand's passive abilities, making it a solid choice.
