League of Legends: Bard the Wandering Caretaker now available

League of Legend’s newest support character has finally been released, and he is definitely one of Riot’s more unique characters in a long while. The most interesting ability is being able to create portals that allow movement through walls. You just might think twice before chasing that opponent who appears all alone.  Here is a breakdown of all his skills:

Passive: Traveler’s Call

Ancient Chimes

Bard’s presence causes sacred chimes to appear on the Fields of Justice. Collecting a chime grants Bard a brief burst of movement speed, experience, and mana.

Meeps

Bard’s presence attracts small spirits known as meeps to his side. Whenever Bard attacks, a meep throws itself at his target, dealing extra damage before disappearing back to the spirit world. As Bard collects more chimes, the meeps that follow him grow in both number and power.

Q: Cosmic Binding

Bard fires out a burst of spirit energy in a line, damaging and slowing the first enemy struck. After Cosmic Binding hits an enemy, the burst of energy continues through, searching for secondary targets. If it hits a wall, it stuns the initial target; if it hits a second enemy, it stuns both targets.

W: Caretaker’s Shrine

Bard conjures a health pack that gains power for a few seconds. Allied champions who walk over the pack gain health and a brief burst of movement speed, while enemies can stand on the pack for a moment to destroy it.

E: Magical Journey

Bard conjures a portal on a target wall. The portal tunnels through to the far end of the wall, granting one-way passage to all champions, friend and foe, who enter it.

R: Tempered Fate

After a brief delay, Bard places all units in a targeted area – friend or foe, including champions, minions, monsters and turrets – in stasis. Frozen units are immune to all damage until the effect wears off.

You can purchase the Bard along with his alternate Elderwood skin at a discounted price of 1462 RP until March 16th when the bundle will go up to its normal price of 1950 RP.

Also here is Riot’s own in-house video if you want to see the champion in action before you join a game and are caught off guard by the wandering caretaker.
