While League of Legends features many champions, the team at Riot Games noticed that a certain type of fighter was severely lacking in their roster: a Tank. Enter Braum, the Heart of the Freljord.

Wielding his enormous shield, Braum is able to jump between his allies and enemies to block and sometimes negate incoming damage. His abilities include Winter's Bite, Stand Behind Me, Unbreakable, and Glacial Fissure. Braum can deal both magic and concussive damage, but at the end of the day, he is all about protecting his allies. Riot Games made sure that with his set of abilities Braum is useful to the team regardless of the number of enemies that come his way.

Speaking of allies, Riot Games also revealed which Champions Braum works best with as well as the ones who stand to cripple him in battle. For allies, Braum is best paired with Ashe, Caitlyn, and Ezreal. His weaknesses are best exploited by Lulu, Zyra, and Vayne.

As with any Champion, there will surely be many new strategies developed to give players an edge in the game. Let us know your thoughts about League of Legends first tank Champion and how you plan to use him or break him in your battles.
