Welcome to our elo booster brand build, complete with runes, masteries, skill order and the item build. Since the brand rework his kit has only changed slightly. This brand item build will strengthen him with items that grant utility and kill potential from his passive burn. Since every spell will burn the enemy, making the most of brands passive is a must in this brand build.
- Blaze (Passive):
abilities set his targets ablaze upon damaging them, dealing 2% of the target’s maximum health over 4 seconds as magic damage and empowering his abilities against them. The damage is capped at 320 against monsters. Blaze can stack up to three times, up to 6% of the target’s maximum health over 4 seconds.
At 3 stacks, an area around the target is highlighted. After 2 seconds, all targets within the area take magic damage equal to 12% – 16% (based on level) (+ 1% per 66 AP) of their maximum health. The explosion will still trigger if the target dies to the third ability or during the delay.
- Sear (Q):
- COOLDOWN: 8 / 7.5 / 7 / 6.5 / 6
- MAGIC DAMAGE: 80 / 110 / 140 / 170 / 200 (+ 55% AP)

Brand Item Build
A Brand Build that will burn your enemies to ashes in 1 combo. Your focus with this brand item build is damage consistency, towards late game you will be popping Ws and Qs every 3-5 seconds. To do that we’ll start off by correcting our mana problem and purchasing a fiedish codex so we can later build it into a Morellos book. Once that item is complete you’ be at your first power spike as Brand which is usually around 12-15 minutes in the game right before objective plays and rotations start taking place.
Now that you got the cooldown reduction and mana problem solved. You can start working on the Crystal Specter which will act as the glue in your Brand Build. By combining those two items you’ll have alot of leverage over your lane and enemies who happen to group. A great way to catch a person after these 2 core items are built is by popping your Pyroclasm. It has the longest cast range out of everything. Shortly after follow up with your Sear spell to finalize the catch and stun your target.
Your third item in this brand build will be Liandry’s for the extra burn effect that also counters tanky hp heavy champions like Maokai and Volibear who also heal. You need a survivablity item in your Brand Build if you’re the choice of target in your game. Since you have no really escape you will find that Hour Glass or Banshees will help you survive an assault. Zhonya’s is the preferred item to build if you must build a survival item.
For your final item, you have a choice between Death Cap or Luden’s Echo. This will depend on how your specific game is panning out and whether or not you need to catch someone out (Ludens) or have the pleasure or casting all your spells on grouped enemy champions (Deathcap).
Brand Runes, is a simple rune page. The early defensive stat help, but the Magic Pen mark runes are a must. The best way to top of any AP Carry rune page, is by giving them that extra flat 15 AP.
This brand build will be making full use of the burn, from the passive, items and even the keystone mastery deathfire torch. In this mastery page we have opt-ed to have dangerous game, merciless, assassin.
The Brand build focus is early lane bulling, as well as lane clear. (W) can provide both of these functions, while allowing you to win lane and do lots of damage in team fights. Once you have rylai’s this will become even more effective.
Now that you learned the Brand item build, along with his runes masteries and skill order. The only thing left in this Brand build is his Counters. View our champion Counters for more in depth strategy’s.
