Riot has officially revealed showcase milestones, starting with the Eclipse 2022 event. Here’s everything you need to know.
With the mythic overhaul, Riot turned Gemstones and Prestige Points into Mythic Essence, then introduced Masterwork Milestone. Now with patch 12.8, Riot released Showcase Milestone to provide another way of earning mythic essence.
Showcase milestone is like masterwork milestones introduced in patch 12.7, but with a greater cost and better rewards. This will be helpful for players who want to collect all the skins, as you can get hundreds of skin shards by completing the milestone along with other rewards. Before talking about the rewards and costs, let’s see what the showcase milestone is.
LoL Showcase Milestone 2022
In their dev post about the mythic content overhaul, Riot talked about showcase milestones. The idea was players could get the prestige edition skins for each event by completing the showcase milestone. But that has been scrapped as fans complained about having to spend a lot of money in order to get a prestige skin they like.
Now, fans will get 125 prestige points instead for openings 25 event capsules. And prestige skins will be available in the mythic shop.
In the 12.8 patch notes, Riot said,
“Like Masterwork Milestones last patch, Showcase Milestones grant bonus rewards for purchasing event capsules, though the Showcase Milestone track can only be completed once. We’ve made significant changes to Showcase Milestones since they were originally announced! Showcase Milestones are now the best way to collect content from new Showcase releases.“
To celebrate the launch, Riot added a way for players to get a free Capsule and Grab Bag. You can read the article about it to learn how to get those rewards for free.
Showcase Milestone Rewards
Here is the full track of Showcase Milestone:
- 1 Capsule: Eclipse Knight 2022 Icon
- 3 Capsules: Prestige Eclipse Knight Senna Emote + 5 Mythic Essence
- 5 Capsules: Random Eclipse 2022 Epic Skin Permanent (Lunar Eclipse Aatrox, Lunar Eclipse Senna, Solar Eclipse Sejuani, Sun-Eater Kayle) + 15 Mythic Essence
- 10 Capsules: Random Eclipse 2022 Epic Skin Permanent + 20 Mythic Essence
- 15 Capsules: Random Eclipse 2022 Epic Skin Permanent + 25 Mythic Essence
- 20 Capsules: Random Eclipse 2022 Epic Skin Permanent + Eclipse 2022 Grab Bag + 30 Mythic Essence
- 25 Capsules: 2 Eclipse 2022 Grab Bags + 30 Mythic Essence
So in total, you will get the 25 Capsules you paid for + Emote and Icon + All four Eclipse 2022 Epic Skin Permanents + 2 Eclipse Grab Bags + 125 Mythic Essence
Each capsule has 3 skin shards with a chance to contain mythic essence and grab bags. So in total, you can get almost 100 skin shards from the capsules and grab bags. That is an insane number of skins. But it will also cost you a lot.
Capsules used to cost 750 RP in the market whenever available. So for 25 capsules, you will need to spend around 18,000 RP (125 USD).
So for someone who wants to collect all the skins in the game, this is a great way to do that. But if you want a particular skin, it’s better to just buy it straight from the store.
