Though Bard has only a few skins in League of Legends, those skin designs are brilliant and go very well with Bard’s magical goofy character.

Bard was released almost seven years ago in season 5 (yes, it has been that long). He is a support champion whose passive spawns ‘chimes’ at random locations. Collecting those chimes gives Bard movement speed, experience, and mana. So when you see a Bard running around the map with his funny movement animation, don’t assume they are trolling, ‘sometimes’ they play seriously.

Bard passive also attracts small spirits called ‘Meeps’ to his side. Meeps get more powerful and also grow in number as Bard collects more chimes. Meeps look different in different skins.

How Many Bard Skins are There in 2022

As of writing this article, Bard has five skins in League of Legends, with the latest one coming out on December 2nd, 2021. Among the five skins, 3 are Epic tier skins that cost 1350 RP each, 1 is Standard tier, and the other is a Budget tier skin costing 750 RP.

LoL Best Bard Skins in 2022

5. Bard Bard

  • Release Date: November 17, 2016
  • Price: 750 RP

Although we ranked this skin at 5, it doesn’t mean that this skin is terrible by any means. It is the cheapest of all Bard skins with no new animations or sounds, as expected considering the price. But this skin makes Bard look like a Bard. And his Meeps look like, get this, a bird. Overall it’s a cheap and straightforward Bard skin that is well worth the price tag.

4. Elderwood Bard

  • Release Date: March 12, 2015
  • Price: 975 RP

If you want a Bard skin that is somewhat on the serious side, this is the only one for you. Elderwood Bard has a design that makes Bard feel like a druid. You get a cool recall animation for the low price, and the animation on his W looks impressive. This is the best budget option of all the Bard skins.

3. Cafe Cuties Bard

  • Release Date: December 2. 2021
  • Price: 1350 RP

This is the latest Bard skin, and Riot has gone full Disney mode with it. Cafe Cuties Bard has a teacup as his head, and you run around with Meeps that look like teacups. This skin is on the cuter side with bright colors and a detailed character model. It also has new animations and sounds. But for the 1350 price tag, I think the other skins look much better.

2. Astronaut Bard

  • Release Date: May 28, 2020
  • Price: 1350 RP

Some may argue that Astronaut Bard skin is the best one out there. Astronaut Bard looks brilliant with cool animations and little green alien Meeps following you around. The walking animation also looks amazing, along with all of your abilities. This skin is well worth the price tag. You get all you can want from a skin.

1. Snow Day Bard

  • Release Date: December 10, 2015
  • Price: 1350 RP

Snow Day Bard is undoubtedly the best Bard skin in League of Legends. It has been the best for a long time, and most Bard mains love playing with this skin. Bard looks fantastic in his winter attire. You have cute little penguins Meeps following you around that you can chuck into the enemy. With the ice-themed particles of your abilities, everything just fits together perfectly.
