New Jungle Bard Build Guide

(no im not kidding.)

So, I know what you're thinking, "why bard?"

Well. It started as a joke but I ended up finding genuine success because of these reasons;

Reason 1 | Bard has a lot of CC, his first one to three autos slow when you have enough chimes, and his Q also slows as well as stuns when used correctly

Reason 2 | He is very versatile, his E, W and R can all be used in multiple effective ways, as Bard your E can be used to either get a creative ambush on your enemies to get some pressure in, or it can be used to help you and your team catch-up in a chase, or it can be used to get you and your team somewhere safer away from enemies into an advantageous position, or it can be used to set up traps where you have teammates waiting on the otherside for the unknowing enemies that follow you. Your W acts not only as a heal but also as a Movement speed increase that can be used to either give healing stations to teammates or to give you or your teammates Movement Speed to either make distance or close it. Your R is special because it can stasis *ANYTHING,* are you and your team getting ulted? Stasis you and your friends. Is the enemy team chasing you and yours while you're all low? Stasis the enemies. Is the enemy hiding under tower at low hp? STASIS THE TOWER. Because of this, Bard is able to function and help in various ways.

Moving on from the why, we move on to the "How?"

For starters, as per norm we start with Red, from here we do a full clear, it is important we get every monster we can, so make sure to ward Blue or get a friendly teammate to do it for you, however, for the time being we skip Raptors, even with this, we still hit level 4 after a full clear, letting us have level 2 Q and all of our other basic abilities unlocked.

After this point we can enter our general shenanigans as Bard and do some saving and even some killing, Bard is no slouch with an AP build when it comes to burst damage, this is due to his Q and especially his passive, making full AP builds be very good actually, because of this and his natural slight beefiness, we can make two builds here to use:

(P.S Feel free to mix and match the runes with the build itself, you can be real creative)
