League of Legends: Braum, the Heart of the Freljord, Revealed

By   /   Apr 22, 2014

Developer Riot Games today revealed its recently teased support champion Braum, the Heart of the Freljord.

Tagged as the ‘manliest of manly supports,’ Braum is a a strong and resilient melee support whose kit is designed around taking hits from enemy champions that were intend for your allies. Braum can quickly leap into the action and save an ally but using his shield and in the process negating the first bits of damage.

His ideal job is to become a wall between both teams as he transitions into a late game tank.

Abilities

Passive: Concussive Blows
Braum’s basic attacks apply Concussive Blows. Once the first stack is applied, all basic attacks from Braum and his allies apply further stacks. Targets that sustain four stacks are stunned and suffer bonus magic damage. After being stunned, Braum cannot apply Concussive Blows to his target again for a moderate duration.

Q: Winter’s Bite
Braum propels freezing ice from his shield in a straight line skillshot, dealing magic damage (based on Braum’s max health), slowing and applying a stack of Concussive Blows to the first target hit.

W: Stand Behind Me
Braum leaps to the aid of a nearby ally, positioning himself between his target and their nearest enemy champion, and granting both Braum and his target bonus armor and magic resist based on his total armor and magic resist.

E: Unbreakable
Braum raises his shield in a target direction, negating the damage from the first attack from the shield’s direction and reducing the damage of all subsequent attacks as long as the shield is raised. Braum intercepts projectiles with Unbreakable, causing them to hit him and then be destroyed. He also gains a minor speed boost until he lowers his shield.

R: Glacial Fissure
Braum slams his shield into the ground, sending out a huge long-range skillshot that knocks up and damages all enemies caught before leaving behind a strong slow field.

Braum will be put on PBE soon. I’m assuming that like Leona, his base damage is going to be very low. Still it would be interesting to see if the community can play him in other roles.
