Riot Games, developer of the rather popular MOBA title League of Legends, has announced the newest champion to make its way to the selection screen: Braum, the Heart of the Freljord, who will take his role as support.

The announcement was made earlier this morning on the official site, which lists abilities, strategic overviews, and information about Braum's synergy with other champions, and some insight from the creator, RiotWrekz.
In lane, Braum functions most effectively as a reactionary or opportunistic support, constantly on the lookout for chances to apply Concussive Blows to the enemy duo. Accurate use of Winter’s Bite triggers the mark on targets who’ve wandered from their minion wave, while Braum can tag aggressive enemies with basic attacks before leaping back to the ranged safety of his marksman with Stand Behind Me. After applying Concussive Blows, Braum and his marksman have two solid options: either follow up hard and try to activate the stun, or zone the enemy and take up aggressive positioning. Concussive Blows is powerful enough to win almost any trade, while the threat of triggering the stun acts as a powerful deterrent, forcing the enemy marksmen away from valuable minion gold. Braum’s also a powerful asset during friendly ganks: by dashing to his jungler with Stand Behind Me, Braum’s able to get into the heart of the enemy duo. After they’ve been tagged with Concussive Blows, the jungler’s extra attacks accelerate the stun and help secure kills.
Braum's setlist involves a number of rather interesting support abilities, including his passive Concussive Blows that stuns enemies after a time. His other skills, like his ability to leap to a nearby ally and also raise his shield to negate damage should make a valuable support asset.

Braum is not yet live, though players eager to try him out can jump on the PBE server to test their mettle. Check out the full breakdown to see who he is best against and who he should avoid in a fight.
