How to unlock Lillia for free in League of Legends is the question racing through most summoner's heads right now. With Patch 10.15 right around the corner, Lillia will be prancing around the rift soon. While most new champions cost a whopping 7,800 Blue Essence, there is a way to add Lillia to your collection for free.
How to Unlock Lillia for Free in League of Legends
In order to unlock Lillia for free, you must acquire the item, Lillia's Haiku. Much like Sett's Calling Card, the item is granted to players who complete a specific task and is able to be opened once the new champion releases--in this case July 22. For Sett, his calling card was granted to those who secured enough first bloods.
In order to obtain Lillia's Haiku, players who earn 350 takedowns in the jungle role will be granted the item. Riot counts both kills and assists as takedowns and requires that you run smite for these kills to count. Additionally, Riot's tracking system will need to determine that you were actually jungling during the game in order to count the takedowns, so its advised that you clear jungle camps and objectives. Only kills in match-made games will count (meaning blind pick, normals, ranked solo/duo, ranked flex, and even games against bots).
The hidden mission went live in 10.14 so ping for a leash and get started finding those takedowns in the jungle!
