Bard Matchups Overview

Bard General information

Bard tips and tricks

The best time to pick up nearby Chimes is when there are no minions in lane about to die. Otherwise, you’ll fall behind in XP trying to pick them up.

When playing against melee champions, try to use your empowered auto-attack on them every time they walk forward to last hit minions.

Do not place your health shrines Caretaker's ShrineW in a position where the enemy can easily take them. But don’t place them too far away from where you can’t get to them quickly. Place them slightly behind you and the ADC.
