Briar Matchups Overview
Briar General information
Be proactive with your Ultimate R. It should be used whenever it is up to almost guarantee a kill during the earlier stages of the mid-game.
In team fights, focus the squishiest enemy champion or somebody without defensive tools. This will make taking someone down much easier.
When looking to fight, try to fight when your allies are in a position to follow up so you don’t go in alone.
Every combo you need to master the champion!
