The League of Legends Lunar Revel 2022 event starts on Jan. 20, 2022, the same day Patch 12.2 goes live. With Patch 12.2, Riot Games is bringing new champion updates, item reworks and the release of Zeri, the new League of Legends champion to the game.

The Lunar Revel event is Riot Games' way of celebrating Lunar New Year and brings new missions, themes and rewards. By completing the Lunar Revel missions, players can obtain tokens. In order to complete these missions, players just have to play games of Summoner's Rift, ARAM and TFT. Rewards include skins, chromas, loot bags, keys and more.

Last year, players were upset with the requirements for the Lunar Revel missions and the token system. Therefore, Riot has changed a few of the requirements in order for players to obtain tokens easier and will be using the time-based system when it comes to earning points for the missions.

This is similar to the Debonair missions which used the same time-based point systems and gave more tokens to players than the usual system used in the past.

League of Legend players can also look forward to trying the new marksman champion out, Zeri. Zeri's abilities are focused around her high mobility and kinetic energy, which will make her an overpowered champion this patch. Zeri's abilities allow her to move at great speed which can quickly dish out damage to the enemy team.

As the Lunar Revel event begins on Jan. 20, 2022, players can look forward to many new content in League of Legends. Along with the Lunar Revel missions and earning tokens, the Porcelain, Withered/ Crystal Rose and Firecracker skins will be available for purchase in the in-game shop on Jan. 26, 2022.
