Be the Carry! [APC Bard Guide]

By bardbot
Hello! I'm bardbot. I'm a casual league player who likes to experiment a lot.

Before anything, I might warn you - this is not a ranked-oriented guide and I don't recommend anyone using it to climb. This is a guide to a build that I had fun playing around with.

This guide is also very simple, just stating pros, cons, matchups, runes and some items. I am not a pro player or something, but I hope this is helpful!
Why bard?
Since his release, Bard has been known for having lots of damage in lane, since he is a support. AP/AS Bard has been done and is still a quite viable option if you know how to play around it and have a favorable matchup.

Are there better options? Yeah. Surely. But almost none of them are as fun to play as Bard.
Pros and cons
+ Decent sustain;
+ Easy way out of mana problems;
+ Easy setup of ganks;
+ Lots of clear wave mid-game;
+ Basically anti-dive;
+ Excellent roaming.

- Early squishy;
- No clear wave early-game;
- Easy to pressure;
- Hardly stacks if pressured.
