Riot is updating the Champion Pricing System with Patch 13.5.

As one of the world’s most popular online multiplayer games, League of Legends continues to attract millions of players from all corners of the globe. One of the key elements of the game’s success is its vast roster of champions. Each champion comes with its own unique abilities and playstyles, and currently, the game has 162 champions. But like free to play any online game, the champions must be separately bought. Each champion can be bought with either the free currency Blue Essence (BE) or the premium currency Riot Points (RP).

However, The current pricing strategy for League of Legends champions is pretty outdated. Champions lose value depending on how many champions have been released since their releases. The pricing also doesn’t consider what demographic the champion caters to. For example, Yuumi is a very simple and beginner-friendly champion, but she costs 6300 BE or 975 RP.

That’s why Riot will be updating the pricing of all the champions. In a recent Dev Blog shared some information about the new price changes going forward. They will be re-categorized from new player-friendly champions to the latest champions. This will help newer players and even older players unlock all the champions.

Champion Pricing Tier

Each champion in the game is now categorized into a tier, and each tier represents the champion’s complexity and pricing.

  • 450 BE / 260 RP: These champions are easy to play and great for players just starting. Examples include Malphite, Miss Fortune, and Yuumi.
  • 1350 BE / 585 RP: Champions that are a bit more complex than the lower tier but still approachable for those interested. Examples include Yasuo, Lucian, and Sett.
  • 3150 BE / 790: Champions with greater difficulty or specialization in their play. These will often have steeper learning curves before one sees consistent success. Examples include LeBlanc, Shaco, and Yorick.
  • 4444 BE / 880: This is a separate tier created only for Jhin.
  • 4800 BE / 880: The majority of the roster will have this price.
  • 6300 BE / 975 RP: Champions that have come out in the past two seasons, after which they will move to the tier above after the next season starts.
  • 7800 BE / 975 RP: Champions that have come out in the past week.
