Traveling Bards are NPCs and shops in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. They are added in New Game Plus, which requires the Version 1.3.0 update or later. They appear at various locations throughout Alrest, and are displayed on the map as green shop icons. They can be male or female characters of any race.

Traveling Bards exchange Bonus EXP for valuable items; for example Accessory Expander Kits can be obtained from the bard in Goldmouth.

The Version 1.4.0 update added several more Traveling Bards who trade various Role CPUs for Poppi.


Traveling Bards can be found in the main towns of most nations, as well as in Spirit Crucible Elpys, the Cliffs of Morytha, the Land of Morytha and the World Tree. There are no Bards in the Indoline Praetorium or Leftherian Archipelago.
