The Essence Emporium FAQ

Step right up, ladies and gentle-yordles, and feast your eyes on the extraordinary Essence Emporium

At the Essence Emporium you can trade blue essence for gemstones, emotes, icons, and other terrific trinkets! Could you ask for anything more?! Oh, you can? Well, we’ve got you covered. As long as the Emporium is open, XP boosts, rune pages, and name changes are 50% off!

Act fast! The Emporium is only around twice a year for a couple of weeks at a time – once preseason (around the end of November) and once midseason (around April or May).

Most icons, including legacy and limited ones, are available in the Mystery Icons Box. You just won’t find any esports icons, team-specific icons, exclusive icons, or icons that grant borders or gemstones.


Any ward from midseason 2019 onward that's listed as available in your in-client Collection may be found in a Mystery Ward Box. Esports wards, mission rewards, and ward icons are the only ones you won’t find.
