Meet Briar, the latest addition to League of Legends’ expanding roster. Crafted through blood magic, this vampire brings unique skills to the game. Released on September 13th, as part of patch 12.18, many players have been experimenting with her. But fear not. This article has tips and strategies to make mastering her a breeze. Stay tuned for the secrets to dominating with Briar!
Passive: Crimson Curse
Briar’s healing powers increase as her health decreases, and her attacks and skills cause a temporary stacking bleeding effect. The physical damage the bleed deals increases with the number of stacks, and it also recovers some of Briar’s health based on the original, unmitigated damage.
Skill 1: Head Rush
Briar pounces onto her target, delivering a stunning blow while diminishing their armor.
Skill 2: Blood Frenzy/Snack Attack
Briar moves quickly in the direction of the nearest foe, preferring champions. She has faster mobility and attack speeds during this dash, doing physical damage. She gains some health back and deals more damage when she recasts this skill; it works particularly well against low-health foes.
Skill 3: Chilling Scream
Briar gears up, losing her Blood Frenzy but gaining protection and healing as she charges. When she lets out a scream, it briefly slows down enemies and causes damage based on how long she charges. If she charges it fully, the scream pushes foes away and stuns them, dealing extra damage if they hit a wall.
Ultimate: Certain Death
To pick her target, Briar kicks a hemolith gemstone and jumps to where it hits the first champion. When she lands, she significantly damages everything nearby and makes enemies flee. After that, she’ll keep pursuing her chosen foe until one of them, either Briar or her target, is defeated. When that happens, she gets a powerful Blood Frenzy boost, gaining armor, magic resistance, and faster movement for a while.
Briar is a champion who is good at engaging but struggles to disengage. Be careful when using her skills, ensuring it always turns to kills, assists, or objectives.
The Jungle lane is the ideal choice for Briar as she can thrive by absorbing damage and her abilities significantly enhance her jungle-clearing speed.
When Jungling, Briar should rush Stridebreaker followed by Black Cleaver. Here’s a recommended build for her.
- Black Cleaver
- Sterak’s Gage
- Blade of the Ruined King
- Plated Steelcaps
- Guardian Angel
Runes for Briar
Primary Rune Tree: Precision
- Legend: Alacrity
