Mythic Shop and Mythic Essence FAQ

Introduction to the Mythic Shop and Mythic Essence

With Patch 12.06, Gemstones and Prestige Points have been combined to create a single new currency that never expires: Mythic Essence. Players that had Gemstones in their loot inventory will now find they have x10 Mythic Essence instead. (1 Gemstone = 10 Mythic Essence.) Any remaining Prestige Points have now disappeared. The Gemstone Shop has become the Mythic Shop and with it comes the chance to acquire rare Prestige skins that you’ve longed for, but didn’t think you’d see again!

Mythic Essence FAQs

What is Mythic Essence? 

Gemstones and Prestige Points have combined to become the new, unified rare currency of League—Mythic Essence (ME).

How do I get more Mythic Essence? 

ME can be acquired and earned in all the same places that Gemstones and Prestige Points were, including Event Mission rewards, Event Orbs and Capsules, Masterwork Chests, Summoner Leveling rewards, and soon (Patch 12.07), as Loot Milestone rewards.

What can I craft with Mythic Essence?

ME can be used to craft rare content in the Mythic Store including:

  1. Unvaulted Prestige Skins
  2. Unvaulted Mythic Skins
  3. New Prestige Skins
  4. Blue Essence (BE)
  5. Orange Essence (OE)
  6. Random Skin Shard
  7. Seasonal Mythic Skins with Border + Icon
  8. Seasonal Mythic Ward Skins
  9. Mythic Emotes
  10. Mythic Chroma + Icon (requires Mythic Skin ownership) 

What happened to my Prestige Points and Gemstones?

As of Patch 12.06, all Gemstones in player inventories have converted to Mythic Essence at a ratio of 1 Gemstone = 10 ME. Prestige Points, on the other hand, have expired and no longer exist.

Mythic Shop FAQs

What is the Mythic Shop? 

The Mythic Shop is the new long-term home of all craftable and unvaulted Mythic and Prestige Content (Mythic Essence required!). It’s accessible via the Loot Tab in your League Client. There, you can craft Mythic skins, Blue Essence, rare Seasonal Mythic items, and more! See the full list above.

What is launch exclusivity? How does unvaulting work?

Launch Exclusivity: The initial window of “system exclusivity” for Mythic content wherein content can only be acquired from its release system (e.g. Event Shop, Mythic Shop, etc)

Unvaulted Mythic Content: Content that's been temporarily made available for crafting through Mythic Essence in the Mythic Shop.

When a Mythic or Limited Skin is first released, it can be unlocked throughout the duration of the Event or promotion. When the promotion ends, it’s removed from the Store and enters the “Loot pool” where it can be re-rolled into or dropped as a reward. “Unvaulting” content is a concept wherein we bring back previously released content in the Mythic Shop so that players can have a chance to unlock it with Mythic Essence, rather than relying on a very lucky Loot drop. For content to be eligible for unvaulting, it first needs to be at least 1 year old.

What's the schedule for new Mythic Shop content?

Annual Mythic Content: A new Theme and Ward Skin released once per year.
Mythic Chroma Rotation: Mythic Chromas will be rotated out every 2 patches and this will be dependent on patch scheduling.
6-Patch Mythic Content: Released every 6 Patches: March, June, September, and December.
Monthly Prestige Unvault: Four Prestige skins are unvaulted every 2 patches, replacing the previously unvaulted Prestige selections.
Mythic Shop Prestige Release: A new Prestige skin debuts for the first time in the Mythic Shop (occasionally alongside a Showcase) and is available for 2 Patches before rotating out. These don't happen on a regular schedule and can happen at any time during the year.

Every year we’ll choose a new Theme that will carry across all the Mythic Skins released over the year. One new Ward Skin of the same Theme will also be available.

The 6-Patches content will unvault in March, June, September, and December. These releases will contain new skins within the same annual Thematic. (After their three months of prime time, 6-Patch content will also once again be vaulted and turned over to the next offering.)

What are Prestige 2.0 skins?

With the changes to Mythic content and a new Mythic Shop, we’re giving many players the chance to earn Prestige skins for their favorite champions for the first time. But our overhaul of Mythic content doesn’t stop there. Going forward, new Prestige skins are permanently leveling up in an effort we’re calling Prestige 2.0. 

As of Patch 12.08, all new Prestige skins will come with:

  • An updated design and thematic
  • Brand new ability VFX
  • Unique splash art
  • Additional recall VFX

A year or more after release, new Prestige Skins released after Patch 12.08 will be eligible for Mythic Shop rerelease for a limited time. Always check your client for the latest release and time-limit details! 

A note for 2018 and 2019 original Prestige skin owners:

While we definitely want to give new players the chance to earn previously vaulted Prestige skins, what about those original players who earned theirs the hard way? To recognize the time and effort given by players who worked to earn 2018 and 2019 Prestige skins during their original run, we’re granting them special Commemorative Prestige versions for free. These Commemorative skins will never be available from another source, but new players will be able to craft the original versions in the Mythic Shop when unvaulted. Players who qualify for these skins will receive them anywhere between April 5 and May 5.

These 16 Commemorative Prestige (2022) skins are only for original owners: 

K/DA Kai'Sa Prestige Edition Arcade Caitlyn Prestige Edition
K/DA Akali Prestige Edition PROJECT: Irelia Prestige Edition
Blood Moon Aatrox Prestige Edition Star Guardian Neeko Prestige Edition
Firecracker Vayne Prestige Edition Valiant Sword Riven Prestige Edition
K/DA Ahri Prestige Edition Bewitching Miss Fortune Prestige Edition
Fuzz Fizz Prestige Edition True Damage Qiyana Prestige Edition
K/DA Evelynn Prestige Edition Pulsefire Thresh Prestige Edition
Battle Academia Lux Prestige Edition Nightbringer Lee Sin Prestige Edition


If you have not received your Commemorative Skins by Patch 12.08 and believe it’s a mistake, please submit a ticket.
