Here’s what the Mythic Content Overhaul could mean for you
Mar 23, 2022
The Mythic Content Overhaul will be hitting League of Legends in the next patch, and fans’ cosmetic acquisition experience will then be very different. From spending Prestige Points immediately to what to do with Gemstones, here are all the best tips on how to approach the upcoming cosmetics update.
Prestige Points expire before Mythic Content Overhaul
Prestige Points, the current way of purchasing Prestige versions of other skins during timed events, are going away forever. Prestige Points will disappear forever from players’ inventories on March 24, 2022. If you have any Prestige Points remaining, spend them before the cutoff hits to avoid losing free potential rewards. Even if you’re short of the total needed to claim a Prestige skin, the points can still be redeemed for various event rewards bags, icons, Hextech keys, and Orange Essence used to spend on other skins.
Gemstones will be rolling over into the new system. In that new system, Prestige Points and Gemstones will both have their functionality achieved by the same currency, Mythic Essence.
Mythic Essence will join Blue Essence and Orange Essence, which are used to redeem in-game for regular and special cosmetics.
The new system will arrive on March 30, the week following the Prestige Point cutoff. This new system will look to make acquiring Mythic content more consistent and make the currencies spendable on either Prestige or the previously Gemstone-locked Mythic skins. In theory, this should make fans’ time commitments translate more often into rare cosmetics for the champions they love most.
Riot Games has also said that Hextech skins will no longer be the norm for Mythic content outside of battle passes. Instead, a thematic line of Mythic skins will be developed each year for a set of champions, with Ashen Knight bringing the Dark Souls vibes for 2022.
