Bard's Unique Eternals include one titled Cosmic Catches with a requirement of "Multiple (2+) enemy champions stunned with Cosmic Binding (Q)".

I was always under the impression that Bard has only ever been able to stun a maximum of 2 people, not 2+ with a single cast of his Q. So, is there ever a situation where Bard could technically stun more than 2 enemy champions at a time with a single cast?

    For what it's worth, I spent a small amount of time in the practice tool with Bard and some enemy dummies, and it's definitely not possible to stun more than two enemies. I wonder if the "(N+)" is just standard wording for all eternals to clarify what "multiple" actually means, even when there's no possibility of doing more than N. Mar 6, 2020 at 15:57
  • @AnthonyGrist I think you should make your own answer. Having your answer baked by test and experience is more interesting than the wiki, plus I think your thought on the N+ format is a good catch which might be worse adding to an answer to be more visible, as it might explain why there is this (2+) in the wording of the ethereal.

1 Answer 1


Upon looking at the League of Legends Wiki (mainly to see if his passive changed), there is not a way for him to stun more than 2 enemies with a single Q. You should be able to progress by stunning 2 champions.

This is just conjecture but maybe in a future patch, collecting chimes gives additional effects to his spells. I am only ruling this a possibility since he has fallen out of favor recently and Riot wants to give him more scaling without effecting his early game. Again though, that is just a guess based on the wording.

    I'm not sure about that second paragraph. Bard's chime scaling was literally just nerfed in patch 10.5 because he was doing too well in high level play. That doesn't really suggest that he's fallen out of favour or they want him to have more scaling. Mar 5, 2020 at 14:08
  • I did say it's conjecture though. It's just something to think about considering the wording. Arguably he is not part of the meta at the highest level of play with only 5 games across ALL competitive leagues albeit with a 4-1 record (1 game in EU, 4 games in KR). The answer still stands regardless of the conjecture. Rather than leave a comment, next time suggest an edit if a harmless guess about something due to wording really detracts from the correct answer.
