Playing against Bard
Key Insights
Avoid running near walls or moving too close to allies as
Q
is an easy double stun.
Champions are still targetable inside
E
. Displacements will pull them out.
Don’t get baited by following
E
. He can easily land
Q
when you get out.
Bard can roam and come back to lane fast because of
P
and
E
.
R
duration is 2.5 seconds, similar to
/
. It can also disable turrets and monsters.
Power Spike
Pretty strong lvl 1 with
Q
but excels in trades once he has
W
(heal + haste).
Power spikes are tied to his chimes at 25, 45, and 60. His basic attack slow with meeps and damage increases at 15 bonus damage every 5 chimes.
Vulnerable
Bard is very squishy with only
E
as an escape. It has 18 sec CD early game, repeat ganks after he uses it.
