Passive – Concussive Blows


Braum’s general attacks apply concussive Blows to enemies and it lasts for 4 seconds. After getting the first debuff effect from Braum, his allied champions auto attacks will also add a stack to the Concussive Blows. When it reaches 4 stacks, the enemy will get stunned for 1.24 seconds while taking 32 amount of magic damage. After stunning enemies, they will not receive any stacks of Blows for the next 8 seconds but they will receive an additional 7 amount of magic damage from Braum. A Blue Circle timer will appear below the enemy which indicates the cooldown of Concussive Blows.

Skill 1 – Winter’s Bite

skill 1

Braum throws an ice cube that deals 60/120/180/240 amount(60+5%) of magic damage while slows them down by 70 % for 2 seconds. A single stack of Concussive Blows will be added upon hit by this ability.

League of Legends: Wild Rift Braum Gameplay Tips

Braum is a pure support/tank type hero, so as a tank his main duty to protect the damage dealer e.g. Marksman. He is known as a dragon lane supporter. So before laning check your map side. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our League of Legends: Wild Rift Braum guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game in the game.

Early Game

First, buy buts of speed and help your not steal kills or minions unnecessary. At the end of the slain, you will get gold too. See enemy pick and build your first core item.

Wild Rift Braum Guide

Buy Glacial shroud and upgrade it according to your need. Spam Skill 1 and auto attacks with your allies to stun enemies more easily.

Mid Game

In this phase never leave your MM.Try to perform combos in that phase like, first activate shield then jumps into your ally and save him from enemies killing blow.

Wild Rift Braum Guide

Do not fall behind gold. Building 2 core items will make you more sustainable. If you are low on HP, do not initiate unnecessary fights.

Late Game

This is the best phase for Braum. Upgrade your boots into Stoneplate which will provide you additional health(if your team has a more fragile hero upgrade your boots into Redemption) and do not afraid to save your allies by using skill 2. Try to build Warmog’s armor as fast as possible. Do not try to solo or push the lane alone. Always gank with your team and when 2/3 enemies are dead try to capture Elemental Drake and Baron. This will higher your winning possibilities. Additionally, you can perform Skill combos like

Skill 3+ Skill 2+ Skill 4+ Skill 1

You can interchange the combo, varying upon the situation.

Additionally, Braum forms strong pairs and serves as Best Combos with Ezreal, Ashe, Jinx andVayne.

Final Thoughts

Braum is very helpful in a team fight but he totally depends upon his skill casting combos. Stunning enemies by using his passive is very important and though fissure has a short area enemy can easily dodge from that. So keep patience and make yourself more sustainable to use abilities. Raise your shield when needed, cause in some cases the shield will protect you from Lux, Ezreal’s long-ranged ultimate.  

With the above guide, you can easily practice Braum in LoL Wild Rift, and before heading to play ranked matches practice a little bit in the PVP mode.
