Want to know everything about the Mythic Content Overhaul in League of Legends? We've got you covered.

The Mythic Content Overhaul is set to begin with the release of Patch 12.6. This huge update is set to release in three phases, each containing loads of rare and exclusive content.

Here's everything coming in the Mythic Content Overhaul.

League of Legends Mythic Content Overhaul: Each Phase Detailed

Phase 1

Mythic Essence: Gemstones and Prestige Points are combining into a single new currency that never expires. Your remaining Gemstones will automatically convert to Mythic Essence at a 1-to-10 ratio, but your Prestige Points will disappear. After the update, Mythic Essence will replace Gemstones and Prestige Points everywhere those two currencies appeared as loot or rewards. Mythic Essence drop rates from Masterwork Chests will temporarily increase to offset the removal of Prestige Points from bundles.

Mythic Shop, Prestige Unvaults & Mythic Thematics: The Gemstone shop will be replaced with a Mythic Shop that features rotating content.

Unvaulted Prestige skins: Prestige skins released at least one year ago are eligible for unvaulting in the Mythic shop. Two Prestiges will be unvaulted each month. Here's how the Mythic Essence pricing works:

  • First unvault: 125 ME
  • Second unvault: 150 ME (2019 Prestiges start here)
  • Third+ unvault: 200 ME (2018 Prestiges start here)

2018 and 2019 Prestiges start at higher tiers to respect the higher exclusivity and difficulty of obtaining them. Additionally, when those Prestiges are unvaulted, original owners will receive exclusive modified versions of the skins. These modified versions won't be available for Mythic Essence and the cutoff for original ownership will be one patch before the Mythic Essence transition. 

To start, the first three unvaults all at once, meaning six Prestige skins will be unvaulted for three months:

  • K/DA Kai'Sa Prestige Edition (200 ME, original owners get a special edition)
  • PROJECT: Irelia Prestige Edition (150 ME, original owners get a special edition)
  • Pulsefire Thresh Prestige Edition (150 ME, original owners get a special edition)
  • Arcanist Zoe Prestige Edition (125 ME)
  • Spirit Blossom Teemo Prestige Edition (125 ME)
  • Battle Queen Diana Prestige Edition (125 ME)

Mythic thematic skins:  Old Gemstone skins will also be unvaulted on a two-at-a-time rotation in the Mythic Shop, but will rotate every three months instead of each month. They'll debut at 100 ME for their first unvault, and cost 125 ME on subsequent returns. The first unvaults will be Hextech Annie and Hextech Amumu. In addition, the Hextech thematic is retiring and introducing new seasonal thematics for Mythic Essence-exclusive skins. The 2022 Mythic thematic is Ashen Knights. A new Mythic thematic skin debuts at the beginning of each three-month rotation and rotates out at the end.

Seasonal ward & emote: A rotating Mythic thematic ward skin will be available each year for 50 ME, as well as a Mythic thematic emote for 25 ME.

Other Stuff: You'll always be able to spend a little Mythic Essence on a Hextech Chest (5 ME), Hextech Key (5 ME), 50 Orange Essence (1 ME), or 150 Blue Essence (1 ME).

Reroll & Drop Exclusivity: With the addition of legacy Prestiges to the Mythic Shop, Riot is removing Mythic skins, including Prestige skins, from loot pools, including rerolls. Moving forward, whenever you see something described as "exclusive", that means the only way to get it is through the means described at launch. The only exception will be a window during future Season Starts, where Prestige and Mythic skins that are at least one year old will temporarily reappear in loot drop and reroll pools. Old event orbs and capsules in your inventory, which launched with the chance to drop Mythic and Prestige skins released at the time, will still have a chance to drop those skins, because we aren't going back and re-coding their loot pools. Regular Hextech and Masterwork chests will stop dropping these skins as soon as the Mythic Essence transition occurs.

Phase 2

Prestige 2.0: Prestige skins are leveling up. Riot is experimenting with a new thematic layer to Prestiges to help them stand apart and feel like more than gold chromas. Prestige 2.0 skins are high-fashion reimaginings of the base thematic, as if it were the theme for a red carpet or runway event. Additionally, Riot is amping up the value that Prestiges offer, including brand new splash art!

Showcase Milestones: Loot showcase events, like 2021's PROJECT or Battle Academia, are switching from Prestige Point bundles to a rewards track that progresses as you open event capsules. The skins that would've been released for Prestige Points are now exclusively releasing as the final reward on showcase milestone reward tracks. A showcase milestone track is designed to match the same amount of loot you would've had to buy to earn 100 Prestige Points through capsule bundles in 2021, but with a bunch of extra loot rewards attached. These rewards tracks will look something like:

  • 1 Capsule: Event icon
  • 3 Capsules: Exclusive emote
  • 5 Capsules: 975+ skin shard
  • 10 Capsules: 1350+ skin shard
  • 15 Capsules: 1820+ skin shard and 10 Mythic Essence
  • 20 Capsules: Event grab bag and 10 Mythic Essence
  • 25 Capsules: Exclusive Prestige skin, icon, and border

Masterwork milestones are an infinitely repeatable rewards track for opening Masterwork chests. Riot is currently planning on the following:

  • 5 Chests: 5 Mythic Essence and any tier skin shard
  • 10 Chests: 5 Mythic Essence
  • 15 Chests: 5 Mythic Essence and 975+ skin shard
  • 20 Chests: 5 Mythic Essence
  • 25 Chests: 5 Mythic essence and 1350+ skin shard

Mythic Essence drop rates from Masterwork chests will return to normal when Masterwork milestones launch. Since each chest roughly corresponds to one Mythic Essence, bundles provide slightly less Mythic Essence than the Prestige Point comparables (5 ME rather than 6 PP for the 5 chest bundle; 10+1 ME rather than 13 PP for the 10+1 chest bundle).

Event Pass Evolved: An update to League's event passes, hybridizing the Token Shop system and more traditional battle passes. Earn XP from playing games and completing missions, and unlock tokens and other rewards as you level through the pass. All the rewards spread across different event mission types today are consolidating into a 50-level rewards lineup with paid and free tracks:

  • Free event missions: Converted to free pass track rewards. Still includes 300 total tokens and an Event Orb, among other content. You'll earn all free rewards by level 30.
  • Pass token bank missions: Converted to paid pass track rewards at each level. After all 50 event pass levels, there's an infinitely repeatable "51st" level for pass holders that grants tokens.
  • Pass milestone missions: Converted to paid pass track rewards.
  • Pass weekly wins missions: Now grant XP instead of tokens. Stacks with First Win of the Day missions.
  • Free First Win of the Day missions: Earn pass XP for your first win (or 3 played matches) each day. Like the standard First Win mission, this is a use-it-or-lose-it model; you can't accrue multiple First Win missions.

Event passes will still cost 1650 RP and include four Event Orbs and 200 Event Tokens. Riot is also keeping the 2650 RP bundle that includes the base skin of the event's Prestige, its border, and its icon.

With the Mythic Content Overall coming with the release of Patch 12.6, it seems that there's a lot to look forward to.
