Every League of Legends player will get a chance to receive 10 Mythic Essence for free.
Over the last few years, there have been many complaints from League of Legends players regarding the old Gemstone and Prestige content. Many players felt Gemstone and Prestige content were “underwhelming” and not worth the grind; however, Riot did acknowledge that and announced a Mythic content overhaul last year.
Although Riot delayed it multiple times, Phase 1 of Mythic Content Overhaul finally came out on patch 12.6. And to celebrate the launch of the new system, Riot is giving a chance to all the players to get 10 Mythic Essence for free in League of Legends.
What is Mythic Essence?
Mythic Essence is the new in-game currency, a combination of Gemstones and Prestige Points that never expire. League players will be able to use this new currency to buy special skins, accessories, and more from the newly overhauled Mythic Shop.
League players will be able to obtain Mythic Essence (ME) the same way they used to earn Gemstones or Prestige Points. At the start, Mythic Essence drop rates from Masterwork Chests will temporarily increase to offset the removal of Prestige Points from bundles.
All Gemstones in player inventories will convert to Mythic Essence in 1 Gemstone = 10 Mythic Essence (ME) rate.
How to Get 10 Mythic Essence for Free?
To get 10 Mythic Essence (ME) for free, all you have to do is complete the one-time mission that will appear on March 31, 2022. However, the mission will expire on May 2, 2022. So, complete the mission before the deadline, and you’re good to go.
What Can You Buy With 10 Mythic Essence?
As a part of Phase 1 Mythic Content Overhaul, Mythic Shop will officially debut on League of Legends patch 12.6. In Mythic Shop, there will be new Mythic skins and accessories that will rotate every three months (every 6 patches).
Though the first sets of exclusive Mythic skins will cost you 100 ME and accessories more than 25 ME, you can still use those 10 free ME on these options:
- Random Skin Shard (10 ME)
- 50 Orange Essence (1 ME)
- 150 Blue Essence (1 ME)
However, we recommend you to save those ME and use them to collect exclusive Mythic Skins such as Ashen Knight Pyke.
