Very nice guide. I use Brand a lot in normals (not playing ranked yet) and I feel most of the guide applies there as well. As far as item build goes, if I feel like the enemy is targeting me a lot because they know I do a lot of damage, I typically like to get GA over zhonyas. I just have to remember to use it, and it's much more team fight friendly as the CD on the zhonyas is significantly less than the GA. I'll certainly be using zhonyas from this point on =) I also want to add a few points to improve your guide.

First, if you notice a minion low on health and the enemy champion near it, use your E ability to make sure you last hit and harass at the same time. That way you're not expending mana on empty space, and rather securing that gold.

Second, I know you mentioned it in your guide, but I think it's important to reiterate that your ultimate bounces off other enemy targets. Brand's ultimate is especially effective when the team is bunched up together. Sometimes you can initiate with your ult for maximum effectiveness plus the proc from Brand's passive, which is a great way to a minimum of 8% health for tanks.

Great work man, I hope to see other guides you make in the future.

PS. What other champions do you enjoy playing that we can maybe see guides in the future?
