Summoner Spells Back to Top

Always take flash pretty standard. 


For the second summoner spell you can take Ignite or exhaust 
Ignite is for more aggressive playstyle and exhaust for more passive or if you know it will be a more safe farming lane for example.

I personally pref Ignite most of the time because i play very aggressive and try poking as much as i can also i think its the better summoner spell for roaming.


Also exhaust is really good if you enemy team has a lots of assasins like238.png105.png103.png121.png134.png who can burst the carry

Masteries Back to Top

0/18/12 these are my masteries


Cunning Tree:

Wanderer for better roaming
Secret Stash only one who makes sense here and better sustain
Meditation for the mana reg which bard really needs in the early
Bandit standard for supports to gain extra gold
Intelligence because you want the 45% CDR 

Resolve Tree:

Recovery for the extra health regen
Explorer so good on bard again more movement speed for roaming
Veteran Scars for the extra health in early
And Insight for lower CD on summoner spells which is important for support

Always start Q always max Q and take at lvl 3 second point in q for more dmg and lower CD.

I pref maxing E over W cause of the speed and lower CD since maxing W second doesnt reduce the cost or the CD of the ability.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Best Start Items always start with this
    first back if you cant get Sightstone
    Starting Trinket
    Get red trinket as soon as you got sightstone and after lvl 9 upgrade it for free to oracle
    These are the Boots i recommend for early roaming Boots of Mobility later you should sell them for Ionian to get the 45% and better teamfighting
    Great Item for Bard curcial for roaming and setting off your ultimate use this to slow the enemy before ganking a lane

Core Items

    Core Item build for Bard and gives you the 45% CDR
    Against Heavy enemy AD Team which also gives you the 45% cdr but more cost efficent
    Always have one in your inventroy the key for victory and so cheap

Situational Items

    Good Item for Bard which also gives the mr passive like locket and really nice for sieging game
    If you are snowballing
    Great Item for bard against AD heavy teams which also gives nice cdr
    Gives you move speed/ap and cdr + nice passive for your ad carry
    oh damn i just love this item great for pushing and also gives you some nice defensive stats but no cdr
    Good item on an AS based ADC dont rush or buy it if your adc already got 100% crit build
    These items also works on Bard

Important:


Get your sightstone as fast as possible and right after that your tier 2 boots for roaming or cdr to spam your abilities more often.

Blitzcrank

Easy

Well dont get grabbed and all is ez :) stay behind minions poke him if comes close to you you have nice dmg output with bardQ.png and passive + thunderlords.

VS

Brand

Hard

Dodge his skills and avoid as much dmg as you can you are forced to play safe and wait for junglers help his dmg output is so much stronger than yours 

VS

Braum

Medium

Try poking as much as you can till lvl 6. After lvl 6 care for his braumR.png engage especially against 22.png and 236.png

VS

Janna

Easy

Bait the shield then poke the one who doesnt have the shield 

VS

Karma

Medium

So this a skill matchup who pokes better? just care of her karmachakra.pngkarmaheavenlywave.png poke. If she engages on you with karmasoulshield.pngkarmaspiritbond.png then the enemy jungler most likely is close to you

VS

Nami

Medium

be carefull of the bubblenamiQ.png if she hits you they can kill you also nami got some nice dmg output

VS

Soraka

Try poaking her not the enemy adc because of the annoying healastralblessing.png soraka has. If you are not able then play safe let your adc farm and try roaming and give your adc some backups with bardW.png before you leave the lane

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

He got more poke and more range than you play safe and poke him if comes for his velkozE.png but avoid to get 3 stacks on you after lvl 6 or his velkozR.png will hurt with true damage.
