Bard ability - Traveler's Call

Bard's presence causes magical chimes to appear, which grant Bard 20 + (1 per minute after 5 minutes) experience, 12% maximum mana, and a burst of 24% movement speed out of combat for 7 seconds. Any chime collected after the first grants 14% bonus movement speed instead, up to a total of 80%.

Additionally, lesser spirits follow Bard and aid in his attacks dealing 40 (+ 15 per 5 chimes collected)(+30% bonus Ability Power) - collecting chimes causes these meeps to gain power over the course of the game.

Bard fires an energy bolt, dealing 80/125/170/215/260 (+65% bonus Ability Power) magic damage to one or two enemies. The first target hit will be slowed by 60% for 1/1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8 second(s).

If the bolt hits another enemy or a wall, any enemies hit are stunned for 1/1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8 second(s).

Bard ability - Caretaker's Shrine

Cooldown: 12Cost: 70 manaRange: 800

Bard raises a health shrine that immediately offers 30/60/90/120/150 (+30% bonus Ability Power) health, but restores up to 70/110/150/190/230 (+60% bonus Ability Power) health as it gathers power for 10 seconds. The shrine's effect also grants 50% decaying movement speed for 1.5 seconds.

Bard can have up to 3 shrines active at once, which remain until visited by an ally champion or crushed by an enemy champion.

Bard ability - Magical Journey

The corridor disappears after 10 seconds.

General Tips

General Tips Playing as Bard

  • It's important to collect chimes to improve your meep's attacks, but don't neglect your lane partner! Try to make a big entrance by bringing an ally into the lane with you with Magical Journey.
  • Let your Caretaker's Shrines charge up - they heal for a lot more when at full power.
  • Don't forget that enemies can also use your Magical Journey doorways, and that your ultimate can also hit your allies!

General Tips Playing against Bard

  • Bard's opponents can also travel through his Magical Journey doorways. You can follow him, if you think it's safe.
  • You can crush Bard's healing shrines just by walking over them. Don't let his allies take them without a fight.
  • Bard's ultimate, Tempered Fate, affects allies, enemies, monsters, and turrets alike. Sometimes it can be to your advantage to jump into it!
