New LoL avatar creator lets you find your Runeterran look
Nov 12, 2021
Have you ever wanted to see what you might look like if you lived in Runeterra, the fantasy world of League of Legends?
Riot Games has given fans the chance to answer that questions for themselves with a brand new Picrew-style avatar creator. Picrew has been steadily growing in popularity, especially on Twitter, allowing users to assemble personalized illustrated characters to function as profile pictures or just for fun. Riot has taken a page out of their book in order to hype up the RiotX Arcane event, letting fans depict themselves decked in fantasy garb.
How do I make my own #MyLeagueLook?
There are two ways to use the avatar creator. One is to use it directly through Riot’s website, and the other is to design your character directly inside of the League of Legends client itself. Players who log in to the client in order to customize their character will find a variety of cosmetic pieces that are unique to client-side creations.
From iconic champion weapons to props referencing the Arcane animated series, there’s plenty for fans to take in and tinker with in order to get their Runeterran incarnation looking as spiffy as possible.
One of the key people pushing to get the creator online was marketing creative director Chesney “RiotMoose” Lattuga, who has been taken aback by the community’s positive reception to the new customization option. As fans flood Twitter with their own Runeterran takes, it’s clear the demand for something like this was there.
Riot has continued to add new events, rewards, and ways to interact with the League of Legends world as Arcane’s second act approaches, set to release on November 13.
The animated show has been a smash hit with fans and non-fans of the IP alike and is garnering praise for its well-crafted storytelling and gorgeous visuals. Fans can equip outfits inspired by characters and locales inside of the series in the character creator.
