Tank Bard ARAM How to play

  1. Collecting chimes is very important. It improves your dmg and passive, gives mana and movement speed. Do it!
  2. Low on mana? Just collect some chimes.
  3. Use your W. Put it somewhere behind your team, so they can use it when needed and enemy can't destroy it. Let it charge for increased healing.
  4. You can have 3 Ws at the same time. You can leave 2 Ws behind your team for healing.
  5. Identify best targets for your Ultimate. Is there enemy who lack mobility? That's good target. Sometimes you can use it for disrupting fights. Or for protecting your allies. Be mindful!
  6. E is interesting tool that you can use in ARAM. You can aggresively E into enemy team or play mind games with them.
  7. Do not be shy and do not wait for 'special moment'. You can land great Rs, catching people off and making engages possible.
  8. ADAPT! Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. They heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  9. Remember to consume your Heartsteel procs!
  10. Remember to consume your Grasp of the Undying procs!

Tank Bard Tips and Tricks

  1. It's important to collect chimes to improve your meep's attacks, but don't neglect your lane partner! Try to make a big entrance by bringing an ally into the lane with you with Magical Journey.
  2. Let your Caretaker's Shrines charge up - they heal for a lot more when at full power.
  3. Don't forget that enemies can also use your Magical Journey doorways, and that your ultimate can also hit your allies!
