|“||The chimes of his footsteps are echoes of change.||„|
A traveler from beyond the stars, Bard is an agent of serendipity who fights to maintain a balance where life can endure the indifference of chaos. 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 spirit meeps, it is impossible to mistake his actions as malevolent, as Bard always serves the greater good... in his own odd way.

Weaknesses: None notable
- Traveler's Call:
- Chimes: Bard's presence causes sacred chimes to appear at random locations. Collecting a chime grants Bard bonus speed and increases the power of his Meeps.
- Meeps: Bard's presence attracts small spirits known as Meeps to his side. Each of his basic attacks causes a Meep to throw itself at his target, dealing bonus damage before disappearing back to the spirit world. Depending on the number of Chimes he has, Meeps can have a variety of effects ranging from slowing enemies to dealing area of effect damage in a cone behind the main target.
- Cosmic Binding: Bard fires out a burst of spirit energy in a line, dealing magic damage to the first enemy struck and slowing them. After Cosmic Binding hits an enemy, the burst of energy passes through them and searches for secondary targets. If it hits a wall or a second enemy, it stuns both targets for the same duration, dealing magic damage to the second target as well.
- Caretaker's Shrine: Bard conjures a shrine at the target location. If someone steps on a shrine, they consume it instantly. If the champion was an ally or Bard himself, they are healed for an amount based on the shrine's power and gain bonus speed.
- Magical Journey: Bard opens a one-way magical corridor through the first piece of terrain in front of him to the other side. Both allies and enemies can pass through the corridor, with allies and Bard traveling at increased speed.
- Tempered Fate: Bard places the target(s) and their surrounding location into stasis, preventing them from taking any action, including moving, attacking, or using abilities, and renders them immune to damage.
- Spirit Horn: Bard's Spirit Horn is a unique weapon containing a special harmonic key that splits layers of reality and taps directly into the magical friction that all worlds emit.
