Hey guys, I'be been looking into a good mid laner, so it's a pretty simple question.
Who do you think I should get?
I like Brand, he has great burst and people say he's a relatively easy champ to play.
Malzahar they say has awesome wave clear and I really like his silence.
I don't know much about Xerath, I just hear he's pretty good.
So yeah, help me decide pls.
None are easy to play, but it depends on what you aim for:
Brand is excellent in team fights with heavy AoE.
Malz is excellent at killing single targets provided they have no QSS.
Xerath is excellent at long range and poke comps.
It depends on your play style and the team composition, honestly, but they all have their strengths.
Brand is easy to pick up but in order to make good use of his insane damage you need good positioning, as well as learning when to use his different combos.
Malzahar is strong once you learn to manage his mana, and unless they have a QSS he can win duels easily.
I don't know much about Xerath.
Out of the 3, currently Malz is the strongest in my opinion. His ult is great for bursting someone down and he has great lane presence.
Brand is very feast or famine, and Xerath is EXTREMELY position dependent but very powerful.
Also a note, the Xerath rework is about to be launched on the PBE, so I'd wait to buy Xerath until I got a good look at it :P
Malz is fun, but quicksilver sash makes him poop.
Brand is fun
Xerath is fun
Your daily reminder Malzahar can 100-0 anyone from the ADC to the tank with a null zone + vision + nether grasp combo late game.
As a brand main I think malz somewhat can control the current meta fizz ahri mid by keeping the lane pushed when they want to roam. Save r for when they all.
Xereth works well with a poke comp. a good brand with mf and Leona can kill a team.
After about 550 games on Xerath between normal and ranked, I can recommend Xerath as the best champion in the game.
I like to use champions' available silly gimmicks to do tiebreakers like this.
I don't always run a dumb gimmick*, but when I do, I prefer AD Mal'zahar jungle
