Ancient Chimes: Bard's presence causes sacred chimes to appear at random locations and linger for up to 10 minutes. Collecting a chime grants Bard 24% bonus movement speed out of combat for 7 seconds, stacking up to 5 times, with every other chime collected beyond the first granting an additional 14% bonus movement speed, up to a total of 80% bonus movement speed, 20 + (1 per minute after 5 minutes) experience, and 12% maximum mana. Bard empowers his Meeps each time he collects 5 chimes.

Meeps: Bard's presence attracts small spirits known as Meeps to his side. Each of his basic attacks consumes a Meep, dealing 40 (+12 per 5 chimes collected) (+30% of ability power) bonus magic damage. At 5 chimes, Meeps slow enemies by 25-75% (based on Chimes) for 1 second, and at 15 chimes they splash the damage around the main target and in a cone behind them, with the cone's size increasing at 35 chimes. Meeps spawn every 8 / 7 / 6 / 5 / 4 seconds and Bard can keep up to 1-9 (based on Chimes) of them at a time.

Bard fires out a burst of spirit energy in a line, dealing 80 / 125 / 170 / 215 / 260 (+65% of ability power) magic damage and slowing the first enemy struck by 60% for 1 / 1.2 / 1.4 / 1.6 / 1.8 seconds. 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, dealing magic damage to the second unit as well.

Bard conjures a health pack that builds up in power over 10 seconds. Allied champions who walk over the pack will consume it, gaining a minimum of 30 / 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 (+30% of ability power) and a maximum of 55 / 95 / 135 / 175 / 215 (+60% of ability power) health based on the shrine's power as well as 30% bonus movement speed which decays over 1.5 seconds. Enemies can stand on the pack for a moment to destroy it.
