The Sentinels of Light event has gone live in several of Riot Games' titles, and it is just around the corner for Legends of Runeterra. On July 14, the event is slated to release along with two new champions - Viego and Akshan - and a new "Declare your allegiance" event pass.

Luckily for players that can't wait to know what's in store, one player has already leaked the event details, including information about the event pass and champion skins. Here's everything we know about the Sentinels of Light event coming to LoR.

Legends of Runeterra Sentinels of Light Event Details Leaked

Sentinels of Light will launch on July 14 with a "Declare your allegiance" event pass that prompts players to side with either the Ruined King or the Sentinels. Each side receives their own event pass with thematic rewards based on the chosen side.

Players cannot switch sides after they've chosen, but after completing their side's rewards, players will then begin collecting rewards for the opposite side - with the exception of a few exclusive items, so choose wisely.

A non-canon metagame event will track the amount of support on each side, and at the end of the event, all players will receive a reward based on the winning side (regardless of which side they sided with).

Players will have the opportunity to contribute to Riot's Charity Drive Pool, an initiative created to support nonprofits and charity organizations in partnership with the Riot Games Social Impact Fund. Completing one tier in the event pass in LoR contributes one point to the Charity Drive Pool.

The Sentinels of Light event will come with lots of new cosmetics in the store and event pass, including a Sentinel HQ-themed board, as well as Ruined- and Sentinel-themed guardians, card backs, and emotes. There will also be seven new canonical champion skins:

  • Sentinel Irelia (with new level-up animation)
  • Sentinel Diana
  • Sentinel Riven
  • Ruined Shyvana
  • Ruined Karma
  • Ruined Draven
  • Unbound Thresh

Several of the champion skin splash arts have been officially revealed on the Legends of Runeterra Twitter.

The event will run from July 14, 2021 to August 10, 2021. Look out for an official announcement, including the contents of the event pass, sometime next week.
