Things To Consider When Playing Against Bard

  • Avoid staying in a group of minions or champions. Bard’s Q slows the first target and stuns the second target hit.
  • His stun also procs near walls. So, be wary of that as well.
  • Never follow Bard through his “Magical Journey” ability unless you have vision on the other side. He could be leading you into a trap.
  • Enemies In Bard’s portal can be pushed/pulled out by things such as Blitzcrank’s hook or Alistar’s headbutt.
  • Unstoppable abilities (Assault & Battery, Paranoia, Unstoppable Onslaught, etc.) will make you immune to his stasis (ultimate).
  • If Bard leaves the lane to collect chimes, take advantage of the opportunity to go all in on his ADC.
