Braum is a champion in League of Legends.[1]

Abilities[]

Edit

Concussive Blows

Concussive Blows

Innate: Braum's basic attacks and Winter's Bite Winter's Bite each apply a stack of Concussive Blows to their target for 4 seconds, refreshing on subsequent applications and stacking up to 4 times. Once the first stack has been applied, any allied Champion icon champion's basic attack applies an additional stack to the target On-hit icon on-hit.

The fourth stack against a target consumes them all to deal 26 − 196 (based on level) magic damage and Stun icon stun them for 1.25 − 1.75 (based on level) seconds.

This effect cannot apply to the same target more than once every few seconds. During this immunity period, affected targets take「 bonus magic damage equal to 20% of the trigger damage 」「 5.2 − 39.2 (based on level) bonus magic damage 」from Braum's basic attacks.

Info

Edit

Winter's Bite

Winter's Bite

Active: Braum propels ice from his shield in the target direction, dealing magic damage to the first enemy hit and Slow icon slowing them by 70% decaying over 2 seconds.

Magic Damage:
75 / 125 / 175 / 225 / 275 (+ 2.5% of Braum's maximum health)

Info
  • This ability will cast from wherever the caster is at the end of the cast time.

Edit

Stand Behind Me

Stand Behind Me

Active: Braum Dash dashes to put himself between the target ally and the closest Sight icon visible enemy Champion icon champion within 1500 units, and upon arrival grants himself and the ally Armor icon bonus armor and Magic resistance icon bonus magic resistance for 3 seconds.

Ally Bonus Armor:
20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 (+ 12% bonus armor)
Ally Bonus Magic Resistance:
20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 (+ 12% bonus magic resistance)

Self Bonus Armor:
20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 (+ 36% bonus armor)
Self Bonus Magic Resistance:
20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 (+ 36% bonus magic resistance)

Unbreakable Unbreakable can be cast during the dash.

▶️   "Stand behind Braum!"

Info
  • Stand Behind Me can be used on allied Minion icon minions but not on Ward icon wards nor Noxious Trap traps.
  • If there are no nearby enemy champions, Braum will dash to land up-to 150 units on the far side of his target.
  • The maximum dash range without enemy champions present is ~650. An enemy champion on the far side of the ally will allow Braum to dash a total of up-to 800 units.
  • If Unbreakable Unbreakable is cast during the dash, Winter's Bite Winter's Bite and Glacial Fissure Glacial Fissure may also be cast.
  • If the Dash dash is interrupted, neither Braum nor his ally receive the bonus resistances.

Edit

Unbreakable

Unbreakable

Active: Braum sets his shield in the target direction for a few seconds, creating a barrier that intercepts all incoming hostile Projectile projectiles and reduces the damage Braum takes through it. The first instance of damage dealt by a Champion icon champion from this direction is reduced by 100%. Unbreakable does not affect Turret icon turrets.

Damage reduction:
35 / 40 / 45 / 50 / 55%
Barrier Duration:
3 / 3.25 / 3.5 / 3.75 / 4 seconds

While his shield is raised, Braum also gains Movement speed icon 10% bonus movement speed and Ghost ghosting.

▶️   "My shield is here for you."

Info
  • Definitions
    • Incoming: Damage sources coming from somewhere facing the shield. Those coming from different sides are not affected.
    • Projectiles: Sped up entities not classified as a unit (Champion icon champions, Minion icon minions, Monster icon monsters, etc.)
    • Intercepting: A projectile hitting Braum because he is standing in front of the intended target. In addition to being redirected, an intercepted projectile is also destroyed after hitting Braum (although this is only applicable to pass-through projectiles).
  • Unbreakable's full damage reduction can block multiple instances of damage if they're dealt at the same time.
  • Moving units do not count for being blocked by Unbreakable.
  • Projectiles whose effects trigger on collision will still trigger - dealing damage, applying debuffs, creating area of effects and marking the target as 'hit'.
  • Projectiles that create an area of effect upon their collision will still affect other units and not only Braum.
  • Projectiles that cannot hit Braum or his allies (such as an enemy Prismatic Barrier Prismatic Barrier) will not be intercepted.[2]
  • The damage reduction will affect any source of damage whose origin is in front of the shield. This includes:
  • The damage reduction only benefits Braum.
  • Blaze Damage over time is calculated per tick but the full damage reduction will still only apply to a single tick.
  • If the damage mitigated by Unbreakable exceeds a minimum threshold it is represented with floating text similar to the damage mitigated by shields ('-X')
    • This floating text is always shown for the single fully-reduced damage source.
  • Braum's facing direction is in the direction he's moving in.
  • If Braum is protected by a Spell Shield spell shield, both it and the one-time-use full damage reduction can be consumed by a single blockable spell.
    • The one-time-use full damage reduction will not be consumed if the damage source is nothing but Hybrid penetration true damage.
  • Unbreakable will grant assist credit if the enemy whose damaging projectile is blocked from is killed within 10 seconds.

Edit

Glacial Fissure

Glacial Fissure

Active: Braum leaps into the air and slams his shield into the ground, creating a fissure from the impact that travels forth in the target direction, dealing magic damage to enemies within its path as well as those around Braum.

Magic Damage:
150 / 300 / 450 (+ 60% AP)

The first target hit is Airborne icon knocked up for at least 0.6 seconds, increased if they are further away from Braum. All other enemies hit are Airborne icon knocked up for 0.6 seconds.

Maximum Knockup Duration:
1 / 1.5 / 2 seconds

A field of ice is created along the fissure's path, lasting for 4 seconds and Slow icon slowing enemies within the area every 0.25 seconds. The field disappears after the duration ends in the same order and speed it was created with.

Slow:
40 / 50 / 60%

    Blessed with massive biceps and an even bigger heart, Braum is a beloved hero of the Freljord. Every mead hall north of Frostheld toasts his legendary strength, said to have felled a forest of oaks in a single night, and punched an entire mountain into rubble. Bearing an enchanted vault door as his shield, Braum roams the frozen north sporting a mustachioed smile as big as his muscles—a true friend to all those in need.
