RP, BE, and XP
RP (Riot Points)can only be obtained by purchasing them in the store or receiving an RP gift from a friend. You may use RP to purchase most things in the store.
BE (Blue Essence)can be earned through leveling, champion mastery, Honor, or other sources. BE can be used to craft champions in Loot or purchase them in the store. Blue essence can also be used to upgrade certain rare emotes and champion mastery levels
XP (Experience Points)give you progress towards leveling up, and they can be earned by playing games in League of Legends or by completing certain missions. When you level up, you will earn reward capsules which usually contain champion shards or Blue Essence. (Champion shards can also be disenchanted into Blue Essence if you don’t want to upgrade them.) As of preseason 2018, there is no longer a level cap. Please note: The minimum time any game needs to last to be eligible for XP rewards is 7 minutes.
Normal PvP and Ranked PvP Games
The XP system in League of Legends rewards Summoners based on the time spent played in a game. On average, a 30 minute win will earn approximately 204 XP, and a 30 minute loss will earn approximately 167 XP.
Custom games are not eligible to earn XP.
Co-op vs. AI Games
Summoners gain a percentage of base XP gain based on their level in Co-op Vs. AI games
- Level 1-9: Bots grant 100% XP.
- Level 10-19: Bots grant 90% XP.
- Level 20-29: Bots grant 80% XP (65% after 180 minutes each day).
- Level 30: Bots grant 75% XP (55% after 180 minutes each day).
There is a daily 'First Win of the Day' mission which adds 400 XP + 50 BE to your reward, which unlocks at level 15. This bonus is set to a 20 hour cycle/reset as opposed to a calendar day.
Keep in mind that you are able to complete daily missions only in game modes with a matchmaking queue. This means that you cannot earn it in Custom games.
Boosts are available for purchase with RP in the store. There are two different types of boosts available in League of Legends --- ‘Days’ and ‘Per Win’ boosts. Any XP boost you purchase is automatically extended when there's planned server downtime.
- ‘Days’ based boosts double the base XP earned from a game. For example if you earned 150 XP, a day boost would add an additional 150 XP boost to your account for a total of 300 XP.
- ‘Per Win’ boosts add a flat amount of around 210 XP per game. The time played in a game does not affect this boost’s reward.
You'll earn unique rewards each level from 1-30; after that, you'll earn champion capsules with each level and special milestone rewards for certain levels.
