Summoner Spells Back to Top

I mostly take Ignite, just because the way you can snowball your lane.

The TP nerfs in general made it less usable in roaming / ganking situations early on unless your lanes have pretty deep wards or a huge amount of CC.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Ferocity: 12
- just to get the best bursting bonus out of that tree

Cunning: 18
- Thunderlords and increased DMG and PEN
- Assassin > Secret Stash  because you get the Corrupting pot and you want to harass the enemy top laner as much as possible

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

    Rush Protobelt into Sheen into Ludens Echo. if you need, get a dead mans plate in between for tankyness

Situational Items

    If u need tankyness, go for dead mans plate before finishing your lichbane. At the end you can sell your boots for rapidfire cannon or duskblade depending on what you bought before
    final itembuild endgame
    tryout build if u dont need tankyness at all

The itembuild is the key to playing Bard toplane on a "viable" basis.

You just want to stack as much on-hit burst damage as possible to burst the enemy carries out of their lives.

It also provides a good amount of mobility.

3146.png could also be worth a shot

  • Garen
    Easy

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

Just manage to dodge his rupture.png and you should be able to force him out of lane despite his sustain.

(Remember to pick up your chimes to sustain mana)

VS

Darius

Easy

Earlygame:

Stun him with bardQ.png when he's going to lasthit
and autoattack him while using 2033.png

try to dodge his dariusaxegrabcone.png and run away if he manages to get stacks of his passive onto you

VS

Fiora

Medium

Pretty skill based matchup.

Try to stun her by hitting a minion first with your bardQ.png or until her fiorariposte.png
is on cooldown.

Dont use bardQ.png directly after hitting her with your bardR.png because she will most likely use fiorariposte.png

If she wants to fight you with her fioradance.png disengage until her ult is gone

VS

Garen

Easy

As easy as Darius.

Stun when he wants to lasthit and autoattack him while using corrupting potion

Matchups Back to Top

I will update the matchup section depending on how much experience i get against each matchup.

Playstyle Back to Top

Here a few tipps when playing Bard Toplane:

1. Abuse the enemy spell cooldowns to harass with your Q + AAs
2. Stun by hitting a minion first to land some unexpected Q hits
3. Farm chimes if the lane is pushed into the enemy turret to sustain mana and improve your passive
4. A good combo to burst squishies is
 - Catch them with your ult
 - Get a sense for the duration of your ult
 - Position yourself and time your Q that it its the enemy (and stuns)  as soon as your ult expires
 - Use the corrupting potion, ignite and autoattack with charged meeps

5. You can escape many tricky situations by casting a magical journey and stunning following enemies with your Q
6. You can sidestep to a wall to make your enemys position themselves for an easy stun
7. Get a feeling on how to escape by using your ult on chasing enemies without hitting yourself.
8. You can survive towerdives and eventually getting a freekill by using your ult on yourself when the enemy is diving you [make sure to not hit the tower tho]
9. You can roam to the midlane while collecting chimes and set up an easy (double-)gank with your ultimate or magical journey
