Start getting fired up for Brand, the Burning Vengeance. He's a real spitfire who is sure to attract all you combustion connoisseurs out there like a moth to a flame.
Hey, did we mention that he's on fire?
Brand's mid-season changes are about lighting the whole world on fire. He'll have a harder time nuking lone targets, but when enemies huddle together for safety, it's time for the Burning Vengeance to blow them up.
Brand's spells light his targets ablaze, dealing a percentage of their maximum health as magic damage over time. On the third stack, the Blaze becomes unstable over a few seconds and detonates, dealing a large percentage of the target's maximum health in an area-of-effect.
- Pillar of Flame
After a short delay, Brand creates a pillar of flame at a target location, dealing magic damage to enemy units within the area. Units that are ablaze take an additional 25% damage.
Brand conjures a powerful blast at his target, dealing magic damage to them. If the target is ablaze, Conflagration spreads to nearby enemies.
