Probably his early. Alright, you used your q and you threw a meep at them. Enjoy not having any more practical damage in the fight until your Q/Meep comes back.

That's why you run AD reds and quints.

Really though he's not played mid because his roaming needs to be almost constant for him to scale with most midlaners, but you miss out on a lot of cs and xp by roaming.

Thus he came alone to Angband's gates... and challenged Morgoth to come forth to single combat. And Morgoth came.

Bard scales into a nuclear bomb if he builds damage, so in theory he can work as an AP Carry, but He lacks Wave Clear and he has to survive basically everything that can kill him until he get a sheen, but even then its risky.

Almost every Bard mid kill will be the enemy not respecting your burst.

Waveclear is the main issue since you'll be easily punish roaming for chimes.

W and E don't help damage meanwhile most mids have a full combo. Bard is only going to be able to run away if he's lucky meanwhile, I don't know, Brand pumps out the W Q E walk away true combo.

i know a top lane bard main. you can use him top to abuse melees. mid lane he will get out ranged and destroyed though he does have exceptional roaming from mid lane so you could push for that i guess. but then you run into the issue of 0 damage. if you go bard mid, you generally wont do as much damage as a standard mid. and you would have a tank top who doesnt do much damage either. top lane, you dont need to be 1 shotting people so bard not doing god tier damage doesnt matter as much as long as you have damage mid.

Q + Lichbane is enough to burst down any squishy, and he becomes a pretty big AoE Threat once he gets his big cone and some attack speed.
