When should you take Barrier over ignite? I tend to take barrier as ADC but get barked at to take ignite on everyone else...

i usually take cleanse as adc
but i assume barrier would be best for bursty champs that you're up against ex:graves, lb, veigar
ignite on adc's tended to be more of a counter to the heal meta... i dont see many use it anymore
for mid: i always flash and ignite
support: flash and exhaust
top and jungle depend on who im playing and who im up against

Barrier on adc is good because you can barrier bait people and with your raw damage output the 1-2 attacks it will take to kill your barrier will be enough for you to kill an enemy champ.

I usually take ignite top/mid because its useful vs champions with good sustain and barrier tends to not be as effective because your raw damage output isn't as high as an adc's

Youre not going to want to get close enough to use ignite on anyone as an ADC.

Barrier gives that bit of extra durability an adc needs to be alive when a team fight is started and their bruisers jumps over to you, a dead adc isn't worth much and 425(lv18) true damage over time isn't gonna guarantee you a thing when you're already at 20% health and he's sitting at 50%.

Barrier is good if you will lose early trades in a potentially unavoidable manner (like Draaaaaaven) OR when they have a divey Assassin like Zed. Cleanse if for CC on CC on CC teams. Ignite for securing kills in early laning and making sure support fiddle doesn't CAWCAWCAW you under tower at lv6.

With the exception of the old Holy Trinity (Graves, Corki, Ez)

Ignite
-Early game first blood
-The enemy team has 1 or more Swains

Barrier
-Tower dive me bro, come on, I only have 50 health left...

Supports generally take ignite nowadays. Ignite on ADC is the most useless thing late game
