Mythic Content Overhaul

Mythic Essence

Context: Gemstones and Prestige Points are combining into a single new currency that never expires: Mythic Essence! Mythic Essence—ME for short—can be obtained everywhere Gemstones or Prestige Points were previously earned. You can spend Mythic Essence in the Mythic Shop for special skins, accessories, and more.

WELCOME GIFT: All players will receive a one-time mission on March 31, 2022 that rewards 10 Mythic Essence to celebrate the launch of the new system! This mission will expire on May 2, 2022.

GEMSTONES? SHATTERED: All Gemstones in player inventories have automatically been converted to 10 Mythic Essence each

PRESTIGE POINTS? EXPIRED: Prestige Points (2020) have expired and were removed from inventories on March 24, 2022

MASTERWORK DROP RATES: Mythic Essence drop rates from Masterwork Chests have been temporarily increased during Phase 1 to offset the removal of Prestige Points from chest bundles

Mythic Shop

Context: The new Mythic Shop features content that rotates on a regular basis, including the return of past Prestige skins!

Mythic Skins & Accessories

Context: Mythic skins and accessories in the Mythic Shop will rotate every three months (every 6  patches). New Mythic skins debut at 100 ME and will cost 125 ME in future unvaults. Legacy Mythic skins that were once purchasable via Gemstones (such as Hextech Annie, Soulstealer Vayne, etc.) will also be available in the shop and cost 100 ME on first unvault, and 125 ME on future ones. Here’s what’s on offer this patch:

Mythic Skins & Accessories (Patch 12.6-12.12 Rotation)

  • Ashen Knight Pyke (100 ME)
  • Ashen Knight Pyke Emberwoken Chroma + Ashen Knight Pyke Summoner Icon (40 ME)
  • “I’m Comin’ For Ya” Emote (25 ME)
  • Hextech Annie (100 ME)
  • Hextech Amumu (100 ME)

The following options will always be available in the Mythic Shop.*Mythic Accessories & Other Options (Available Year-Round)

  • Ashen Ward (50 ME)
  • Random Skin Shard (10 ME)
  • 50 Orange Essence (1 ME)
  • 150 Blue Essence (1 ME)

*Note: We’ve added the Random Skin Shard option and removed the Hextech Chest and Hextech Key options since our original announcement.

Unvaulted Prestige Skins

Context: Prestige skins will be unvaulted on a yearly schedule, which also means they can only appear in the Mythic Shop at least one year after their original release. They’ll cost 125 ME the first time they’re offered in the Mythic Shop, 150 ME on the second, and 200 ME if they’ve been unvaulted three or more times.* Usually two Prestige skins will be unvaulted at a time and will be available in the Mythic Shop for one month (2 patches). However, to celebrate the new shop’s launch, we’re unvaulting six Prestige skins that will be  available for three months(6 patches)!

Unvaulted Prestige Skins (Patch 12.6-12.12 Rotation)

  • Arcanist Zoe (125 ME)
  • Spirit Blossom Teemo (125 ME)
  • Battle Queen Diana (125 ME)
  • PROJECT: Irelia (150 ME)
  • Pulsefire Thresh (150 ME)
  • K/DA Kai’Sa (200 ME)

*Note: Prestige skins from 2018 and 2019 start at higher tiers to respect original owners who obtained them when they were more exclusive before the overhaul.

Commemorative Prestige Skins

Context: To recognize the higher investment required to obtain Prestige skins in 2018 and 2019, players who owned these skins before patch 12.5 will receive additional, exclusive 2022 editions of these skins. Commemorative Prestige skins will never be available via shops, loot, or rerolls. The following skins will be gradually distributed to original owners over the next month:

  • Blood Moon Aatrox (2022)
  • K/DA Ahri (2022)
  • K/DA Akali (2022)
  • Arcade Caitlyn (2022)
  • K/DA Evelynn (2022)
  • Fuzz Fizz (2022)
  • K/DA Kai’Sa (2022)
  • Nightbringer Lee Sin (2022)
  • Battle Academia Lux (2022)
  • Bewitching Miss Fortune (2022)
  • Star Guardian Neeko (2022)
  • Firecracker Vayne (2022)
  • PROJECT: Irelia (2022)
  • Valiant Sword Riven (2022)
  • Pulsefire Thresh (2022)
  • True Damage Qiyana (2022)
Exclusive Mythic and Prestige Skin Debuts

Context: To highlight the release of new Mythic and Prestige skins, limited edition loading screen borders  and summoner icons can now only be obtained by purchasing the skin in the Mythic Shop or event Token Shop during the skin’s initial debut period. Once a Mythic or Prestige skin is no longer available in these shops, it will be added to the regular loot drop and skin shard reroll pools without the limited edition loading screen border and summoner icon. This means that Mythic and Prestige skins can still be obtained via loot drops or skin rerolls but only AFTER their debut period ends, and WITHOUT their matching borders and icons.

*Note: This is another change from our original plan of removing Mythic and Prestige skins from loot drops and rerolls permanently, based on player feedback. This option grants players exclusive content for unlocking skins during debut periods and also allows collectors to obtain these skins via loot and rerolls without needing to wait for them to unvault.

Phase 2 Update

Context: All of the above announcements are just Phase 1 of the Mythic Content Overhaul! While we’re not launching Phase 2 just yet, we do have one big update to share regarding Showcase and Masterwork Milestones, which are reward tracks that will replace much of what was offered through Prestige Points in the past. Starting in Phase 2, Prestige skins that debut during Showcases will be available for purchase in the Mythic Shop for 125 ME! Once the Showcase ends, the Prestige skin will immediately retire from the Mythic Shop and become available via loot drops and rerolls without its border and icon, just like other vaulted Prestige skins. We’ll be adjusting the Showcase milestone rewards track to accommodate this update.

And last but not least, don’t forget—there’s also a Phase 3 of the Mythic Content Overhaul! Stay tuned for more details later this year.

League of Legends 12.6 Patch Notes Bugfixes

  • Update: Janna W Bugfix/”Nerf”: Fixed a bug where Janna’s W – Zephyr range had incorrectly reverted to edge-to-edge. It has been restored and now casts from center-to-center, and its range indicator has also been fixed (Note: This issue had considerable impact on Janna’s 12.5 winrates, so we expect thisto be somewhat of a nerf)
  • Fixed a bug where, if Tahm Kench R – Devoured an allied Senna while she was inside her E – Curse of the Black Mist, both champions would disappear from enemies’ view
  • A bug was fixed where Lux’s E – Lucent Singularity projectile would proc spell shields on all enemies itpasses through, even though the projectile itself doesn’t deal damage or cc
  • Fixed a bug where, if a ward was placed on top of an existing ward, the new one would start dancing moving randomly around the older one
