Riot is releasing massive Brand jungle changes in League of Legends patch 13.21.
Brand, the Burning Vengeance, has been one of the popular champions in the game. Because of his easy-to-use kit, he is also one of the first free champions a player can pick when starting League of Legends.
Because of his abilities, players can play him in both support and mid. But in higher ranks, players tend to pick Brand in mid-lane rather than support. But there are some Brand support mains in higher ELO.
Besides mid and support, players don’t pick Brand in other roles that often. There are instances where players do pick Brand as a carry. But other than that rare occasion, he isn’t a flex champion.
Recently, the lead designer of League of Legends unveiled all the changes coming to the game on patch 13.21. In there, he revealed that Brand would be receiving some jungle-specific changes in the upcoming update. Here are all the changes.
League of Legends Patch 13.21: Brand Jungle Changes
- Base Stats:
- Health: 590 >>> 570.
- Armor: 22 >>> 27.
- Attack Speed: 0.625 >>> 0.681.
- Health Growth: 102 per level >>> 105 per level.
- Armor Growth: 4.7 per level >>> 4.2 per level.
- Attack Speed Growth: 1.36% per level >>> 2% per level.
- Passive – Blaze:
- Monster Damage: 120% >>> 250%.
- E – Conflagration:
- Damage: 70/95/120/145/170 (+ 55% AP) >>> 65/90/115/140/165 (+ 55% AP).
Riot made these changes so that Brand Jungle would be properly viable. Firstly, his flat health was decreased, and armor was increased. It is not a massive change as the health growth was subsequently increased, and armor growth was decreased. So, after he builds some items and gains some levels, he will be the same as he is currently. As for his attack speed, both the flat number and growth percentage were increased.
As for the big jungle changes, Riot is increasing his passive monster damage from 120% to 250%. Moreover, his E, on the other hand, is getting a slight nerf. It is so that, while he may become a viable jungler, he doesn’t become an extremely strong support or mid-laner.
Overall, these changes will make Brand Jungle more prominent. So it will bring more breath of fresh air to the current stale jungle meta.
These Brand changes are hitting live servers on patch 13.21, scheduled for Wednesday, October 25, 2023
