Bard Abilities

At the beginning of a match start to skill the ability

Cosmic Binding on
Bard. As the match progresses, it is best to maximise
Cosmic Binding into
Caretaker's Shrine and at last
Magical Journey.
Cosmic Binding is a very strong ability of
Bard in order to build up a lead and dominate your opponents. The passive is called
Traveler's Call and there is no need to set it manually on a Bard Build.

Traveler's Call

Meeps: Bard attracts lesser spirits that assist with his basic attacks to deal extra magic damage. When Bard has collected enough Chimes, his meeps will also deal damage in an area and slow enemies hit.

Chimes: Ancient chimes randomly appear for Bard to collect. These grant experience, maximum mana, and out-of-combat movement speed stacks.

Biography

A traveler from beyond the stars, Bard is an agent of serendipity who strives to maintain the harmony between creation, and the cold indifference of what lies beyond it. Many Runeterrans sing songs that ponder his extraordinary nature, yet they all agree that the cosmic vagabond is drawn to artifacts of great magical power. Surrounded by a jubilant choir of helpful meeps, it is impossible to mistake his actions as malevolent, as Bard always serves the greater good… in his own odd way.
