Not Updated For Current Season
Hello! My name is Julius (Summoner name is Deiru Kun) and is currently standing at PLATINUM III as of 03/17/15 on the Garena PH Server ( Hello sa mga pinoy!). I first played League of Legends around late Season 3 in which I ended with a rank of SILVER I. On season 4 I started to main Zed MID/TOP and Support role and I managed to climb up from SILVER V to PLATINUM V.

Hello guys here are some of my experiences and things I would like to point out while playing Bard.
Take W as your first skill and leave one shrine for your Mid laner, one for your Jungler, and one for your Top laner. The shrines will give them sustain while laning and will even give you an assist if they manage to kill an enemy.
Also, when you're roaming or when you're collecting shrines, be a nice guy and leave one shrine for your Mid laner and one for your Jungler to take when they get low.
NEVER EVER FORGET to leave a shrine for you ADC before you go roaming.
Basically, just leave shrines for your allies whenever you get the chance to visit their lane.
Do your best and communicate with your teammates. Bard is so much more effective when you and your team have good communication. Well basically playing League is improved when you have good communication.
Ask your teammates to buy wards so you always have good vision around the map. This helps especially when you use Magical Journey because you can see if an enemy dares to follow you and that will probably give your team an opportunity to kill him by waiting on the exit of your Magical Journey.
Things to Remember
1. Whenever an enemy enters your Magical Journey entrance, wait for him and use Q for an easy stun.
2. If you're trying to catch up or run away from an enemy, you can cast your W directly to your ally or yourself for that movement speed buff.
3. Saving your Q for the right time rather than wasting it for a slow can really make a difference so use your skills wisely.
4. I recommend using Normal Cast for Bards E so you can see how far the portal you create will be. (maybe I'll post some screenshots later.)
April 1, 2015- After playing with Bard for a few weeks now(both in ranked and normal queue), I found it more effective rushing Locket of the Iron Solari rather than building RoA or Lich bane. It also helps if you get Mikael's Crucible early to remove CC from your allies. I'll be updating the guide after a few more days of testing!
This is my first guide so please be nice and leave a comment about your thoughts and I'd appreciate it if you'd correct some of my mistakes if there are any. I'll keep on updating the guide as I learn more about the fat guy and as I get more familiar with making guides. Please Upvote if my guide was helpful ^^
