Why play Brand?

Lol, as if reworked Xerath is the thing stopping Brand's viability.

Sadly, Brand has been outclassed by utility mages who in turn have been outclassed by assassins. Traditional mages are so deep in the hole, every single one of them are going to get reworked before they become viable since Riot refuses to have utility mages have an actual compensation for their utility.

Yeah, Brand literally should be nicknamed Tons of Damage (TM) because that's kinda what he does.

CC? Hue, who needs it when you're opponent is dead?

Brand's damage is super crazy high actually. Unlocked by hitting skill shots, sure, but super crazy high.

But hard to land skillshots = up, remember?

Y'know everyone talks trash about brand but his overall winrate is top tier and personally he does wonders in high plat and has nearly 0 bad lane matchups.

I do sometimes wish Brand could bounce his ultimate off of himself, so his 1v1 would be better, instead of his ult just fizzling out in .5 seconds.

Its pretty easy to land a stun around level 3, and W + ignite and you are looking at first blood.

I love brand. He lacks mobility , and people complain about his Ult (though the simple solution is don't use it next to a minion wave unless you are praying for an extra bounce for the kill) but if built right he offers utility to win any team fight.
