League of Legends Mystery Champions
The League of Legends Mystery Champion quests are pretty simple, a champion quote is given in the quest prompt and players are rewarded for playing in games with that champion. Each week’s next champion is quite easy to identify if you’re paying careful attention, as the reward for each week is the Mystery Champion for the next week.
