Bard's Statistics

Playing against Bard

Key Insights
Bard can roam and come back to lane without losing much XP because of
P
's bonus movespeed and XP upon collecting Chimes.
Champions are still targetable inside
E
's tunnel -- displacements will push them out.
R
affects every unit in the game, except Inhibitors and the Nexus.
Using
R
on a turret as Rift Herald is charging into it will prevent the turret from taking damage.
Power Spike
Excels at roaming and trading, especially with more
P
's.
Can guarantee
Q
's stun as
R
's effect ends.
Can set up ganks by walking out of vision and using
E
on a wall to gapclose with his ganking teammate.
His gank assist and teamfighting become even stronger after unlocking
R
.
Synergizes well with
Locket of the Iron Solari
,
Vigilant Wardstone
,
Redemption
,
Dead Man's Plate
, and
Abyssal Mask
. Can opt for
Shurelya's Battlesong
or
Imperial Mandate
when needed.
Vulnerable
E
has a longer cooldown of 22 seconds at rank 1. Once used, he can be punished.
A poorly timed
R
can spell disaster for his team.
Forcing Bard to use
R
defensively lowers his teamfighting potential since he'll have less playmaking capabilities.
