Regarding AD Bard, how do you feel about rushing Tri-Force? It is rather expensive, but I feel like just about every stat is beneficial to him.

I've been rushing Tri-Force up until they took away the crit. It's still decent on him, but the only reason I would get it is for the sheen. I recommend building a zeal alongside a Tri-Force or just rush crit and build Tri-Force second.

I just got a penta with the ad build with bard on top vs Yasuo. I love it. Noone is expecting that **** from a Bard :D

Your jungle build work so well. I got 11/5/10 for the first time trial. S- performance. Just laugh when Zed try to run away and escape from me in the jungle with full hp bar. Nice Job.

Could Nashdor's tooth be a replacement for Wit's End? I'd think so as Nashdor's Gives AP on hit and 80 AP and 50 Attack speed. The only thing that wouldn't be there is the 40 Magic Resist.
SirZeros | April 26, 2017 8:11am
I tried that out, however I had a better time when buying Wit's End. It is just such a cheap item giving you some resistance and most importantly giving you magic penetration opposed to ability power, beeing much better on this kind of Bard playstyle.
You don't have high AP scalings on your Abilities so the AP isn't that efficient anyway.
The onhit damage isn't much stronger than on Wit's End, especially early-mid game.

The thing I like much on Nashor's however is the 20% cooldown reduction.
But overall I like Wit's End more in this build composition.

Anyway, if you do better with Nashor's, don't hesitate to buy it :)

Awesome builds lol really fun concept! AD Bard! Who would've thought that something like this would work! Amazing build dude really good fun I had playing with these builds. Great work on making this guide, keep up the good work!

Of course, I will do that sooner or later! :)

Hi, Bard main here and I actually wanted to do an ad guide myself but nice job. It´s a really awesome thing to do. I personally prefer the adc spot though, since its even more op with a follow up cc from a decent supp.

Won 22 games in a row in ranked haha.
SirZeros | April 6, 2017 9:54am
It's also pretty good, but there are some advantages to this, because first, you won't get lvls that quick, second, you can't do much in long trades, so there's a big disadvantage when laning against two people.
Plus you need to get your chimes, and that's probably something that your supp won't like that much ._.

I absolutely love ad bard and I've played it a massive amount even before i saw this guide, which is amazing btw, i usually play him support tho and steal all my adc's kills with ignite which makes them question their champion as adc and why they never seem to be able to do as much dmg as me even when their support doesn't take all their kills. I play ad bard support because i find that the dmg is better early when your not using your chimes on minions instead of the enemy champion, this also allows for easier and less costly chime collection as well as in my opinion better magical journey spots than in mid in particular. Great guide i love it and usually i start static shiv then go IE but I'll try going IE first, though as a support i think static shiv might be better, but I can agree with building IE first in other positions though i don't have much experience with going IE first so i don't know how it compares. The burst is absolutely insane and rather funny coming from a utility oriented champion. One shotting fed quinns who fly into you is rather funny too. Actually the roaming potential is kind of similar to quinn's as is the damage though maybe a little less consistent and not as early. Ohh... I rambled on alot and half of that probably doesn't even make sense, ohh well GL in your Bardventures

Note: I like to call this build Bardini for his uncanny ability to make the enemy carries disappear and his escape artist abilities with his ult and e+q combos.
