“Support with Control and stuns (he can kill you solo if he feeded)”
“Bard can deal a lot of burst to you with electrocute, however his guardian build is meta. This guardian has a high cooldown and can be activated easily by poking. If you engage while it is down, you can deal quite a bit of damage. However, if he stuns you with Q hitting you and another target, you can lose. Overall, you need to stay at an angle where he can't. He often roams a lot too, and you can engage on the enemy ADC with your R when he does so, as long as you have vision on him and his jungler.”
“Bard is a roaming pick support. The best and worst part about Bard is the fact he gets a lot of stuff from roaming, but has to roam in order to have any form of scaling. What this means is, if his lane partner can hold their own (like Ezreal or Caitlyn) then bard can wonder around helping out other lanes AND the ADC gets some solo xp. But if the laner can't defend themselves then the lack of presence means they will be zoned/killed. Now Jhin has the damage to be the latter, meaning bard will need to stay close or you'll bully the lane to victory. Don't stand behind/infront of any other unit (creeps/champ) or infront of any walls as it will allow bard to stun you. Ward the tri brushes on the opposing side so you can see if he leaves the lane and if the enemy jungler will gank through a magical journey. Avoid getting hit by tempered fate as any bard worth his salt will make that into a pick and kill you. He also has a litle bit of bonus sustain with his health packs. Just bully the lane when he leaves, and don't stand next to units.”
“Bard does a lot of damage, but a good Bard won't even be in lane to use it against you. Just play around the damage and you're good. Watch for surprise ganks with his E.”
“Bard's ultimate can be very lethal if you aren't mindful.”
“Read Guide for full matchup.
If he hits his Ultimate, get ready to flash any incoming CC.”
“Bard is fairly easy to play against. A few things to keep in mind are: Don't line up with your support and get both of you stunned, when bard is missing he can portal himself and his jungler into your lane to gank you, and his ultimate can be used to set up picks against you since you have low mobility. If you struggle with avoiding bard r, you can build Galeforce to dash out of it to avoid getting picked. ”
“Bard roams a lot so you can punish him for it by going in on his ADC whenever he's not in lane. Ask your jungle to stay near his chimes. Be aware of his ult.”
“If he leaves his adc and you have engage support feel free to perma dive their support by slow pushing the wave and crashing whilst diving.
Note that you need to know where enemy jg and bard is before attempting this.”
“Bard can poke Miss Fortune hard, and even stun her, and when running away from the enemy, he can ult her to prevent the escape making Miss Fortune as good as dead”
