League of Legends champion spotlight tells the tale of Bard, and how to use him

The newest League of Legends champion is Bard: a roaming support. He’s rather unique, in that he has two unique passives, the ability to shackle and stun enemies together or against walls, heal his allies with health packs and leap himself and his team through solid terrain. If that hasn’t made your jaw drop, then wait till you hear about his ultimate - it makes anyone affected completely immune to all damage, allies, enemies and neutrals alike.

Riots latest champion spotlight deconstructs each of Bard’s new abilities, and we’ve got it below to help you make sense of this cosmic spirit.

Riot focus their Champion Spotlight on Garen, the Might of Demacia

Garen is the pride of the Demacian military, leader of the Dauntless Vanguard and, I suppose you’d say, a man’s man. That distinction’s probably a lot like being a guitarist’s guitarist, like Steve Vai or John 5 - well-liked among cabals of males with hairy backs and beer bellies, but not necessarily anywhere else.

You might well know this already - Garen’s been in and around League of Legends since 2010. But Riot have chosen now to turn their Spotlight on the melee specialist and his tactical wardrobe.

League of Legends Champion Spotlight: Vi, the Piltover Enforcer

Comment
League of Legends Champion Spotlight: Vi, the Piltover EnforcerWe looked in on Piltover Enforcer Vi just over a week ago, when the tea-wielding so-and-so was pottering around on LoL’s test server. Then, we had scarcely enough time to offer an approving nod; now, we get to see five-and-a-half minutes of other champions being punched in the face, maw or beak. There’s plenty of advice on doing it yourself, too.

Champion Spotlight on Diana, League of Legend's newest addition

Comment
Champion Spotlight on Diana, League of Legend's newest additionDiana is looking to be a really interesting champion, for reasons that shouldn’t make her interesting. She has no big flashy ability, no one massive showstopper; just a suite of skills that are extremely useful, work together very well and give her a lot of power in the right circumstance. She’s understated. She’s subtle. She’s a spot of sophistication among the release of champions that favoured bombast over true power. Which is what makes her all the more exciting as a proposition.
