Hard to believe, almost two years have passed since the release of Legends of Runeterra. To celebrate the occasion, there are a number of new additions to the game that aim to shake up the meta and give some love to the champions who fell by the wayside.
In addition, all players will receive some free rewards to brighten up this special moment. Be quick though, you have until May 11th at 11:00am PT / 2:00pm ET / 7:00pm BST / 8:00pm CEST to redeem all the free stuff.
2nd Anniversary Skins and Cosmetics
Both Vi and Jinx are getting alternate skins based on their Arcane versions, which is sure to be big news for fans of the Netflix show. Additionally, champion spells now receive new visual updates based on the skins you’ve equipped, meaning those paying a little more for their favorite champions can show their loyalty a little more.
All players who register before May 11th will also receive a Turning Two symbol and card back to show they love the celebrations. Finally, Vi is getting a new emote, which is great news for those of you who love to spam her when you’re about to win a match.
Three new maps will be added to the game, all listed below:
Power of the Vanguard
- 3 men
- Slow spell
- Spend all your mana to play. Summon an intrepid Vanguard and increase their stats by this amount. When 9+ Mana was spent, grant other allied Elites +2/+2
For the glory
- 6 men
- Slow spell
- Reputation: I cost 3. Summon 2 Trifarian Gloryseekers
- 2 men
- Burst Spell
- Trade and team up with +1/+1 this turn. Create a change of stance in your hand.
Updates are coming to help cards with reputation effects as well as the elite card type. In addition, Udyr also gets much-needed help. What could come as great news for players are long-awaited nerfs for The Bandle Tree & Yordles in Arms.
Additionally, a large number of champions are getting adjustments to keep lesser used cards and archetypes to keep up with the current meta. Notable inclusions include Garen gaining a new ability that buffs units on the field by +1/+1 when summoned, Nasus regaining his Fearsome ability, and Udyr’s level-up conditions focused on stance switching , instead of damaging the enemy Nexus.
