Is Brand good?

I have 5000 RP, and am thinking of getting either him or Ziggs. Is he actually good? I heard they were nerfing his ult though, so my other question is: How bad is the nerf?

It's actually a buff last I checked. He's in a decent place. Pretty good, not bad really. Very much reliant on if you can land skillshots, but not as much as the likes of Lux.

IMO, one of the most fun mids in the game and one of my personal favorites.

Play him well and it like he on fire for the whole game.

The Brand change is a buff at level 6/11/16 if your opponent has more than 1250/1666/2000 health. So as long as your opponent has built one health item, it's a buff damage wise.

Bounce wise, it will be more consistent bouncing to enemy champions instead of minions in general, but it won't in the scenario where you want it to bounce from champion->minion->same champion->minion->same champion and you have the minion ablaze so it keeps bouncing back to the same champion.

He's not very good IMO.

He's pretty lame. Anything he can do, other ap mids can do better. If you miss one ability in your combo and somebody's in your face you're pretty much dead unless your team is there to help

He is awesome and I almost always will get a triple kill per game. You need to land the stun to maximize him though.

He's pretty fun with the variants you can land with his combos. He can stun a single target often with Q and do decent AoE with w+e+r
