INTRODUCTION

HELLO MY NAME IS RAWLLY IM A BRONZIE WHO CLIMBED HIS WAY TO GOLD 2 SEASONS AGO USING THE GODLY BARD BUILD MADE BY MR. FEARSFORTE (HE IS MY HERO, HE MADE THE OG BARD BUILD). FEARSFORTE'S BUILD MADE BARD THE GREATEST CHAMPION IN THE GAME. HOWEVER, HE HAS SINCE BEEN MIA (RIP), AND IT IS NOW MY TURN TO EDUCATE THE MASSES ABOUT THE GODLINESS OF BARD. BARD IS CONSIDERED A TROLL PICK, BUT WITH THIS BUILD, HE IS PROBABLY A TIER ABOVE TIER 1, MAYBE LIKE TIER BARD SINCE HE DESERVES HIS OWN TIER BECAUSE IT'S SO GOOD. I APOLOGIZE IN ADVANCE FOR THE CAPS, SINCE MY CAPS KEY IS BROKEN FROM ME USING IT SO MUCH TO FLAME MY TEAMMATES FOR BANNING BARD BECAUSE THEY WANNA KEEP YOU DOWN. DON'T LET THEM KEEP THE GODLIKE BARD AWAY FROM THE MASSES. BARD IS THE NEW MESSIAH, BUT ONLY WITH THIS BUILD CAN HE BE THE PROPHET OF SOLO QUEUE.

WHY SHOULD I PICK BARD IF HE IS CONSIDERED A TROLL PICK AND OUT OF META?

THIS IS THE HUGE ISSUE THAT CONCERNS MANY LEAGUE PLAYERS TO THIS DATE. WHEN LCS PROS PLAY CHAMPS, THEY ARE INSTANTLY REGARDED AS THE BEST. UDYR WAS CONSIDERED A JOKE FOR SOME TIME NOW, UNTIL LCS PROS PLAYED HIM, AND NOW HE'S BASICALLY PERMABANNED IN EVERY GAME (AT THE TIME I WRITE THIS). EVERY CHAMPION HAS TRUE POTENTIAL (EXCEPT KARTHUS, HE DIED WHEN REVIVE DID) TO BE GREAT, BUT YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO TRY SOMETHING NEW AND DIFFERENT. I CAN GUARANTEE YOU WITH THIS BUILD, YOUR ELO WILL RISE TO ATLEAST CHALLENGER (AT THE VERY LEAST).

WHATS GOOD ABOUT THE BUILD? ALSO 2 NASHORS?

THE MAJOR KEY TO THE BUILD IS MOBILITY, ATTACK SPEED, AND AP DAMAGE. THIS IS WHY WE BUILD BOOTS OF SWIFTNESS FIRST, AND THEN GO ON TO AP/ATTACK SPEED ORIENTED ITEMS. MANY PEOPLE WILL CALL YOU A TROLL FOR BUYING 2 NASHORS, BUT THEY SUPPLY YOU WITH THE BEST COMBO OF AP + ATTACK SPEED FOR THE PRICE, SO GET EM ANYWAY. IT WON'T MAKE MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE.

EARLY GAME BARD

FARM, COLLECT CHIMES, AND DON'T DIE. CHIMES ARE A MAJOR KEY, SINCE THEY DEAL PRETTY MUCH ALL YOUR AUTO DAMAGE. HIT LEVEL 3 FAST, KITE YOUR ENEMIES WITH YOUR AUTOS, DODGE SKILL SHOTS, AND YOU'RE GOLDEN MY BOY.


Guide Top

MID GAME BARD

BY THIS TIME, YOU SHOULD HAVE A DECENT AMOUNT OF CHIMES. KEEP COLLECTING CHIMES, SINCE THEY ARE THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN GET STRONGER. ROAM AROUND AND USE YOUR Q TO STUN PEOPLE INTO WALLS. A GOOD TRICK TO DO IS TO USE A TUNNEL TO GET PEOPLE TO CHASE, AND THEN STUN THEM INTO THE WALL. THIS IS PERFECT FOR SOLOING, KITING, OR HELPING TEAM FIGHTS. AT THIS POINT, THE LANE SHOULD BE OVER, SO ROAM AND FARM CHAMPIONS (KILL EM ALL MY BOY).


Guide Top

LATE GAME BARD

AT THIS POINT, EACH ONE OF YOUR AUTOS WILL BE LIKE MINI NUKES. YOU NEED TO HAVE 100+ CHIMES, AND YOU WILL MELT EVERY CHAMP LIKE THEY'RE BUTTER BEING CUT THROUGH WITH A HOT BLADE OF JUSTICE NAMED EL BARDO. HOLD PEOPLE STILL WITH YOUR ULT AND SET UP Q'S LIKE AN ABSOLUTE MADMAN. AT THIS POINT, YOU SHOULD BE WINNING, AND IF YOU AREN'T, IT'S YOUR TEAMS FAULT NOT YOUR'S.

GOOD LUCK, HAVE FUN

THAT'S IT. THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN MESS UP IS IF YOU DEVIATE FROM THIS BUILD AT ALL. I CAN GUARANTEE A 100% WIN RATE IF YOU FOLLOW THIS BUILD STEP BY STEP. ANY DEVIATION FROM THIS BUILD WILL RESULT IN AN INSTANT LOSS, AND YOUR TEAM WILL FLAME YOU. PROVE THEM WRONG AND #MAKEBARDGREATAGAIN!
