In League of Legends Patch 12.6, Riot started their mythic content overhaul and created the brand new Mythic Shop. Let's check out what skins, icons and accessories you can pick up this month.
Riot Games recently switched up their League of Legends mythic content by revamping their shop. Prestige skins and mythic skins can now be purchased with a single currency, and any other content like accessories will also be made available with this newly introduced currency.
So, what has changed in the mythic shop, and how do you purchase new unique skins now? Let’s go over everything we know about the mythic shop and what you can get this month!
What Is The League of Legends Mythic Shop?
The mythic shop is built into the League of Legends client. It’s a shop in which players can exchange Mythic Essence for skins, accessories and things like blue or orange essence. The skins available in the mythic shop are rare and unique skins that aren’t always available to players.
Before League of Legends Patch 12.6, players had to use either gemstones or prestige points to purchase mythic content, but those currencies have been combined to make Mythic Essence, which is being used now to purchase content from the mythic shop.
What Is In The League of Legends Mythic Shop This Month?
Every month, the mythic shop is going to add new items for players to purchase. Normally, two prestige skins will be unvaulted and made available in the shop to purchase with Mythic Essence.
Upon their first unvaulting, the prestige skins will cost 125 Mythic Essence, their second unvaulting will coast 150 Mythic Essence and any subsequent unvaultings will price them at 200 Mythic Essence. It’s also important to note that prestige skins can only be unvaulted a year after their initial release.
Other mythic content, like new mythic skins – take Ashen Knight Pyke for example – and Hextech skins, will rotate every three months. This means every 6 patches, we’ll be getting new mythic skins.
Which Skins Are In The Mythic Shop This Month?
|Prestige Star Guardian Neeko||150 Mythic Essence|
|Prestige Conqueror Jax||125 Mythic Essence|
|Soulstealer Vayne||100 Mythic Essence|
|Hextech Poppy||100 Mythic Essence|
|Ashen Knight Sylas + Icon & Border||100 Mythic Essence|
Which Accessories Are in the Mythic Shop This Month?
As already mentioned, Riot Games also has accessories which can be purchased in the mythic shop. These range from icons, borders all the way to blue and orange essence, though we do not suggest spending your Mythic Essence on orange or blue essence, which you can easily get without spending a single dime.
|Ashen Knight Ward||50 Mythic Essence|
|Emberwoken Chroma (Ashen Knight Sylas) + Icon||40 Mythic Essence|
|Mythic Chroma Galaxy Slayer Zed||40 Mythic Essence|
|Ashen Knight Sylas Emote||25 Mythic Essence|
|Random Skin Shard||10 Mythic Essence|
|150 Blue Essence||1 Mythic Essence|
|50 Orange Essence||1 Mythic Essence|
When Is The Next Mythic Shop Rotation?
The Prestige skin that Riot unvaulted is going to be in the Mythic shop for one month, while the Hextech skins and the Ashen Knight skin will last for three months in the Mythic shop.
The first instance of the mythic shop lasted from April until June 2022. Riot unvaulted six prestige skins right off the bat for players to purchase, instead of adding two new prestige skins each month. So, if you see any skins you like in the next few months, make sure to get them before they’re vaulted and end up being much more expensive in the future. Remember, each unvault makes them more pricey.
How To Get Mythic Essence
Mythic Essence is the essential currency for purchasing things in the mythic shop. Obtaining Mythic Essence is pretty simple. Anyone who previously had gemstones in their inventory will have received mythic essence when the shop overhaul happened. Every gemstone is worth 10 Mythic Essence.
But if you didn’t have any gemstones before, don’t worry. There is still a way to earn Mythic Essence in League of Legends. There is a way to earn free Mythic Essence, but this is a limited time offer, so make sure you play League before May 2, 2022, to get your free 10 ME.
These are the ways to get your hands on Mythic Essence:
- Hextech Chests
- Masterwork Chests
- Orbs from Missions
Due to the removal of Prestige Points, the drop rate for Mythic Essence in Masterwork Chests has been increased, so players can pick up one of the unvaulted skins in the mythic shop.
Where To Find The Mythic Shop in the LoL Client
The mythic shop isn’t hidden or a secret place which you can barely find in your League of Legends client. Just follow the steps below, and you’ll be able to check out what you can pick up this month in the mythic shop.
- Open League of Legends (duh)
- Click on the ‘Loot’ Section in the top right
- Where gemstones used to be is now the Mythic Essence icon
- Click on the Mythic Essence Icon
- Voilà, you can purchase anything you can afford
Getting into the Mythic shop is easy and just like you’ve always done with prestige points and gemstones. Nothing has changed there, even with the first phase of the mythic content overhaul. Now if you have 100 Mythic Essence you can get your hands on that Ashen Knight Pyke skin with border
What Happened To Hextech Rentals In The New Mythic Shop?
Does anyone even know what Hextech rentals are? That was an option which existed prior to the mythic content overhaul, wherein players could activate skin shards to ‘rent’ the skin for an entire week. The same could be done for ward skins as well.
This feature has been removed in the mythic overhaul. Riot Games explained that “virtually no one used the rental system; many players didn’t even know it existed.” And truth be told, there were quite a few people who didn’t know they could ‘rent’ skins… though the system was pretty badly executed.
Maybe Riot will rethink their rental system and bring it back in Phase 3 of the mythic overhaul?
