Summoner Spells Back to Top

Pretty normal summoners here...

I most always take ignite on Bard unless the enemy team has a lot of AD AA champs or champions like Wukong/Katarina to help with their ults a bit in team fights.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Nothing too fancy here.... Standard for supports this pre-season IMO.

12 Cunning and 18 Resolve

Its best to put your 18 pointer in the resolve tree to get Bond of Stone.. This mastery is just too strong on supports to pass up on.. You could possibly switch out Veteran's Scars for Runic Armor in the Resolve tree, I just prefer the extra bit of HP as most of my heals will be taken by my teammates.

Your Q is your bread and butter skill. Use it wisely and try to line up enemy ADC's with minions, walls, their support, or jungle if he ganks during lane phase.. During fights this is a great tool to use to stun-lock two enemy's together... or at least put a bit of slow down on one enemy for chasing potential.


Try to use your ult... wisely.   I see a lot of bards ulting right when a fight breaks out and this is a complete waste..
If you push your lane out and are post level 6... Roam and collect your chimes for your passive, and look for ganking potential on the mid lane with your ultimate. It takes some getting used to with the timing and distance.. Of course, the closer you are to the enemy you are ulting (or teammate) your ult will land sooner.
Your ult is also good for assisting teammates who get caught out alone. If your teammate gets caught and are a dead man in the water just trying to run away.. Toss your ultimate onto them and do your best to catch up to save them with the speed boost/heal from your W and a stun/slow from your Q.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

    These will be the items you want to obtain first and foremost before even thinking about anything else.

Situational Items

    Everything here is situational after your core items! Read further details below...
    Situational Items I pick up occasionally.. Details in the notes

Everything here is situational!! Especially with all of the new AD items as well as play-style a lot of top laner's are running this pre-season.

First of all... Take a look at the enemy team comp before deciding on your third item.


If its a fairly balanced team in terms of magic damage and physical damage your build path will be as follows:
1334.png2301.png3742.png3190.png3143.png3053.png(You may swap Randuins for Frozen Heart if enemy are more AA based stacking AS)

Enemy team all AD??
1334.png2301.png3742.png3110.png3143.png3075.png

Enemy team loads of magic damage? (THIS IS FOR ME NOT MY BRONZE ADC)
1334.png2301.png3190.png3083.png3065.png3091.png

Enemy team loads of magic damage? (Ok, My ADC is actually pretty damn good!!)
1334.png2301.png3190.png3222.png3050.png3065.png

Balanced Enemy team? (Ok, they are physical/magical pretty evenly... and I have a good ADC)
1334.png2301.png3190.png3050.png3222.png3742.png

OH SHIT -- YI JUNGLE AND TRYN TOP?? (GOTTA STOP THE SPLIT PUSH!!!!)
1334.png2301.png3060.png3742.png3512.png3075.png



As you can see.... There are many different possible ways to build. It all depends on MATCH-UP!!!!

If you honestly don't think match-up matters all that much, or you just want to build the best to maximize Bard as a champion and just your presence in general... I suggest the build below.. the first build posted (I love Deadman's Plate as a 3rd item 80% of the time as it helps my movespeed with its passive (I ALWAYS go for CDR boots..) and ya gotta pick up those chimes!!!
