Lore

  • Biography
  • Story #1
  • Story #2
Blessed with massive muscles, and an even bigger heart, Braum is a beloved hero of the Freljord. Every child born to the ice knows of his legendary strength, capable of felling entire forests of frost-oaks in a single night or rending the very mountains asunder. With a colossal vault door borne across his back as a shield, Braum roams the land as a friend to those in need and a terrible foe of evildoers.
"Today, we fight as enemies. Tomorrow, we may fight as brothers."

TOMB OF THE TROLL BOY

"Would you like to hear a bedtime story?"

"Grandma, I'm too old for that."

"You're never too old to enjoy a good story."

The girl reluctantly crawled into bed and waited, knowing she wouldn’t win this battle. A bitter wind howled outside, whipping the falling snow into devil whirls.

"What kind though? A tale of the LissandraSquare.png Ice Witch, perhaps?" asked her grandmother.

"No, not her."

"What about a story of BraumSquare.png Braum?"

The girl nodded and the old woman smiled.

"Ah, there are so many, which to choose…? My grandmother used to tell me of the time Braum protected our village from a great dragon! Or once, this was long ago, mind, he raced down a river of lava! Or-"

She paused and shook her head. "No, none of them. Wait, have I ever told you how Braum got his shield?"

The girl shook her head. The hearth fire snapped, its warmth holding off the night’s chill.

"Well, in the mountains above our village lived a man named Braum. He mostly kept to his farm, tending his sheep and goats, but he was the kindest man anyone had ever met, and he always had a smile on his face and a laugh on his lips."

"Now, one day, something terrible happened. A young troll boy around your age was climbing the mountain and happened upon a massive stone door with a shard of True Ice at its center. When he opened the door, he couldn't believe his eyes! Beyond was a vault filled with gold and jewels. Every kind of treasure you could imagine!"

"What he didn't know was that the vault was a trap. The Ice Witch had cursed it, and as the troll boy entered, the magical door clanged shut behind him! It locked him inside! Try as he might, he couldn't escape."

"A passing shepherd heard the boy’s cries. The entire village rushed to help, but even the strongest warriors couldn't open the door. The boy's parents were beside themselves. His mother's wails of grief echoed around the mountain. It seemed hopeless."

"And then they heard a distant laugh."

"It was Braum, wasn't it?" asked the girl.

"Aren't you clever? Braum had heard their cries and came striding down the mountain. The villagers told him of the troll boy and the curse. Braum smiled and nodded. He turned to the vault and faced the door. He pushed it. Pulled it. Punched it. Kicked it. Even tried to rip it from its hinges, but the door wasn’t for budging."

"But he's the strongest man ever!" cried the girl.

"It was perplexing" agreed her grandmother. "For many days and nights, Braum sat on a boulder, trying to think of a solution. After all, a child's life was at stake."

"Then, as the sun rose on the fifth day, his eyes widened, and a broad grin lit up his face. ‘If I can't go through the door' he said ‘then I'll just have to go through-’..."

The girl thought for a moment. Her eyes went wide as she exclaimed "The mountain!"

"The mountain indeed. Braum headed to the summit and began punching his way straight down, pummeling his way through the stone, fist after fist. Rocks flew in his wake, until he had vanished deep into the mountain."

"As the villagers held their breath, the rock around the door crumbled. And when the dust cleared, they saw Braum standing amidst the treasure, the weak but happy troll boy cradled in his arms."

"I knew he could do it!"

"But before they could celebrate, everything began to rumble and shake. Braum's tunnel had weakened the mountain, and now it was caving in! Thinking quickly, Braum grabbed the enchanted door and held it above him like a shield, protecting the villagers as the mountain collapsed around them. When it was over, Braum was amazed. There wasn't a single scratch on the door! Braum knew it was something very special. And from that moment on, the magical shield never left Braum's side."

The girl sat upright, struggling to conceal her excitement.

"Grandma" she said "can you tell me another story?"

The girl’s grandmother smiled, kissed her forehead and blew out the candle.

"Tomorrow" she said. "You need to sleep, and there are many more stories to tell."

"Would you like a bedtime story?"

"Grandma, I'm too old for that."

"You're never too old to be told a story."

The girl reluctantly crawls into bed and waits, knowing she won't win this battle. A bitter wind howls outside, whipping falling snow into devil whirls.

"What kind? A tale of the LissandraSquare.png Ice Witch, perhaps?" her grandmother asks.

"No, not her."

"What about a story of BraumSquare.png Braum?" She was met with silence. The old woman smiles. "Oh, there are so many. My grandmother used to tell me of the time Braum protected our village from the great dragon! Or once - this was long ago - he raced down a river of lava! Or -" She pauses; puts a finger to her lips. "Have I told you how Braum got his shield?"

The girl shakes her head. The hearth fire snaps, holding off the wind.

"Well. In the mountains above our village lived a man named Braum -"

"I know that!"

"He mostly kept to his farm, tending his sheep and goats, but he was the kindest man anyone had ever met, and he always had a smile on his face and a laugh on his lips.

"Now, one day something terrible happened: a young troll boy around your age - was climbing the mountain and happened on a vault, set into the mountainside, the entrance guarded by a huge stone door with a shard of True Ice at its center. When he opened the door, he couldn't believe his eyes: the vault was filled with gold, jewels - every kind of treasure you could imagine!

"What he didn't know was that the vault was a trap. The Ice Witch had cursed it - and as the troll boy entered, the magical door CLANGED shut behind him and locked him inside! Try as he might, he couldn't get out.

"A passing shepherd heard his cries. Everyone rushed to help, but even the strongest warriors couldn't open the door. The boy's parents were beside themselves; his mother's wails of grief echoed around the mountain. It seemed hopeless.

"And then, to everyone's surprise, they heard a distant laugh."

"It was Braum, wasn't it?"

"Aren't you clever! Braum had heard their cries and came striding down the mountainside. The villagers told him of the troll boy and the curse. Braum smiled, nodded, turned to the vault, and faced the door. He pushed it. Pulled it. Punched it; kicked it; tried to rip it from its hinges. But the door wouldn't budge."

"But he's the strongest man ever!"

"It was perplexing," her grandmother agrees. "For four days and nights, Braum sat on a boulder, trying to think of a solution. After all, a child's life was at stake.

"Then, as the sun rose on the fifth day, his eyes widened and a broad grin lit up his face. If I can't go through the door,' he said, then I'll just have to go through -"

The girl thinks; her own eyes widen. "- the mountain!"

"The mountain. Braum headed to the summit and began punching his way straight down, pummeling into the stone, fist after fist, rocks flying in his wake, until he had vanished deep into the mountain.

"As the villagers held their breath, the rock around the door crumbled - and when the dust cleared, they saw Braum standing amidst the treasure, the weak but happy troll boy in his arms."

"I knew he could do it!"

"But before they could celebrate, everything began to rumble and shake: Braum's tunnel had weakened the mountaintop, and now it was caving in! Thinking quickly, Braum grabbed the enchanted door and held it above him like a shield, protecting them as the mountaintop collapsed all around them. When it was over, Braum was amazed: there wasn't a single scratch on the door! Braum knew it was something very special.

"And from that moment on, that magical shield never left Braum's side."

The girl is sitting upright, struggling to conceal her excitement. Her grandmother waits. She shrugs and gets up to leave.

"Grandma," the girl stops her, "can you tell me another?"

"Tomorrow." Her grandmother smiles; kisses her forehead; blows out the candle. "For you need to sleep, and there are many more stories to tell."

Patch History

v8.18

Base health decreased.

We're draining some of Braum's baseline sturdiness to make him more reliant on his defensive cooldowns while preserving the high moments he's picked for among the tanky support lineup.

Base stats

BASE HEALTH : [576.6] 540


v8.8
Armor growth decreased. W bonus resistances decreased.

He's too tanky! Cannot do shit when he's so tanky.

Base Stats

ARMOR GROWTH : [4.5] 4

Stand Behind Me.png W - Stand Behind Me

RESISTANCES GRANTED : [17.5/20/22.5/25/27.5]
10/14/18/22/26
STAND AT ATTENTION : Bonus resistances are now applied more responsively


v7.22

BASE ARMOR : [26.72] 47

Stand Behind Me.png W - Stand Behind Me

BASE BONUS ARMOR : [15/17.5/20/22.5/25]
17.5/20/22.5/25/27.5


v6.15
Passive damage down at early levels. Q damage down.

Getting tagged by Concussive Blows forces a tough choice on Braum’s opponents: risk the stun to keep up in minion kills, or fall behind in farm and live to fight another day. Braum’s early damage currently makes both options losing prospects, since enemies who aren’t instantly chunked by Concussive Blows are still eventually worn down by Winter’s Bite. We’re pulling the big man’s punches in lane to give opponents a chance for success.

Concussive Blows.png Passive - Concussive Blows

DAMAGE : [40-176 (at levels 1-18)] 26-196 (at levels 1-18)

Winter's Bite.png Q - Winter's Bite

DAMAGE : [70/115/160/205/250] 60/105/150/195/240


v5.18
Q cost up.

Back in 5.12, we double-buffed Braum’s ability to fish with Q’s and start more fights with a lower cost - looking at the last few patches of professional play, it would seem that we were successful. We love Braum being used for the epic moments Unbreakable and Glacial Fissure can provide, but we’re reverting one of the changes we made back then to keep the risk/reward paradigm on Winter’s Bite in line. We’re intentionally playing it safe on the big guy, but making sure there’s a cost to missing the moment without chipping away his reward feels right for how dominant he’s been.

Winter's Bite.png Q - Winter's Bite

COST : [45/50/55/60/65 mana] 55/60/65/70/75 mana


v5.16
All of the following champions have had their armor or health per level increased.

As part of patch 5.16's item changes, the efficiency of some popular defensive items have been decreased. However, many 'low-income' tanks and team-disruptors relied pretty heavily on the strength of these items to maintain the right level of bulk for their gold stream - you can read more on the why further down, but each of the below champions are picking up some stat adjustments so they'll hit similar breakpoints when it comes to being unbreakable.

v5.12
Q's damage increased and mana cost lowered.

"If you're a long-time Braum player (and deep down, who isn't) these changes probably look familiar to you - they're partial reverts of changes we made to lower his lane harassment and all-in potential almost a year ago. What's changed?
For one, the landscape of what supports are played in a duo lane is much different, meaning what was relatively ‘too strong' an offense for such a defensive champion has changed contextually as activating Concussive Blows isn't the lane-winning power swing it once was. With less instant-killing happening within Braum's passive windows, we're giving him some of his Winter's Bite back and making it less of a risk - and more of a reward - to poke at his opponents in hopes of turning the battle in his favor."
  • Winter's Bite.png Q - Winter's Bite
    • DAMAGE : 60/105/150/195/240 70/115/160/205/250
    • COST : 55/60/65/70/75 mana 45/50/55/60/65 mana

v4.13
Braum's passive deals a bit less damage, W costs a little more mana to use at early ranks, and R's disruption has gone down at early levels. Also people will be un-slowed from exiting Glacial Fissure much faster.

"Braum's continuing to dominate games in both high level and competitive, so we're looking to tone down his oppressive laning and stupendous disruption in early fights. Braum will still scale to the same levels (roughly) at the late game, but he won't have so much power in the early to mid to consistently snowball into it."
  • Concussive Blows.png Passive - Concussive Blows
    • BASE MAGIC DAMAGE 38 + (12 x level) ⇒ 32 + (8 x level)
  • Stand Behind Me.png W - Stand Behind Me
    • COST 30/40/50/60/70 mana ⇒ 50/55/60/65/70 mana
  • Glacial Fissure.png R - Glacial Fissure
    • FIRST TARGET KNOCKUP DURATION 1.5 seconds ⇒ 1.0/1.25/1.5 seconds
    • SLOW 60% ⇒ 40/50/60%
    • SLOW LINGER DURATION When an enemy leaves Glacial Fissure's field of ice, they'll continue to be slowed for 1.5 seconds ⇒ 0.25 seconds

v4.11
Braum's passive does less damage and the timing window that players have to activate his stun is now shorter.

"While we're happy with how Braum does in equal matchups, he can still completely shut down a lane when he picks up a small advantage. These changes are to give a little more breathing room against this muscular shield man. As a clarification, the reduction in the debuff time to activate Concussive Blows means Braum (or his teammates) now have less time to proc the stun. It does not mean the stun lasts longer or that Braum can stun people more often (wouldn't that be terrifying)."

  • Concussive Blows.png Passive - Concussive Blows
    • DAMAGE: 70 + 10 per level ⇒ 50 + 12 per level
    • DEBUFF TIME TO PROC STUN: 5 seconds ⇒ 4 seconds
  • Stand Behind Me.png W - Stand Behind Me
    • C'MON BRAUM: Fixed a bug where when Braum tried to jump over a wall to a teammate with an enemy nearby, he would try to protect his teammate by facing the enemy, but would then smack his butt into the wall and not actually jump over to safety. Braum now jumps more intelligently.

v4.7
