One of the most beloved events and skin lines of League of Legends is rumored to return during Worlds 2022.

Spirit blossom, originally released in 2020, is widely regarded as one of the best events the game has ever received. It also brought back one of the newer and experimental game modes, Nexus Blitz, a visual novel-style side game, and tons of new and exciting skins.

The event was a huge overall success; it contained stories of various champions in their Ionian Mythological counterpart. And the Spirit Blossom event was also the gateway to the Ruination Event as well.

According to leaks and rumors, it seems like Riot Games is now trying to bring back this event in the upcoming Worlds 2022 event.

Spirit Blossom 2022 Event Leaked

One of the famous leakers, Big Bad Bear, uploaded a new video on his Youtube channel containing some very interesting leaks. And according to Big Bad Bear, the Spirit Blossom event is making a comeback during Worlds 2022.

The event will also take place within Wild Rift as well. So far, the skins are just leaked for Wild Rift and not League of Legends PC. And it is still unclear which champions would get the Spirit Blossom skins on PC.

Leaked Wild Rift skins

Here are all champions getting Spirit Blossom skins in Wild Rift:

  • Spirit Blossom Akali (Legendary)
  • Spirit Blossom Nami (Legendary)
  • Spirit Blossom Yone
  • Spirit Blossom Riven
  • Spirit Blossom Kindred

When will Spirit Blossom Event return in 2022?

The leaker stated that the Spirit blossom 2022 should return around the Worlds 2022 as this year’s Worlds theme. According to Riot, the Worlds 2022 will start on September 29.

And since this year’s Words theme will be Spirit Blossom, it’s highly likely that Spirit Blossom 2022 will take place during that time.

However, based on the leaks, the Spirit Blossom Event will start on October 5.

What can we expect?

We can most probably expect some Dual Legendary skins (Similar to True dragon/Dream Dragon Yasuo skins). Even though it’s not confirmed, we can expect Spirit Blossom Akali and Spirit Blossom Nami skins. Also, we can expect a return of Nexus blitz since Riot stated that in their blog post.

“Nexus Blitz is also part of our current rotation, but the results from last year’s runs still put it behind URF, OFA, and Ultimate Spellbook, which is why we haven’t brought it back as frequently.” Riot HBBONG said. “This doesn’t mean Nexus Blitz is retiring, but we would like to make some adjustments—like bringing the current roster of events and rewards more in line with what makes game modes like OFA and URF so enticing—before bringing it back sometime in 2022.”

So we can anticipate Nexus Blitz to come back around September – November. Also, we can expect some Visual novel style side mode similar to what we have seen in the past.
