Riot Games have announced that League of Legends players will soon have new ways to get their hands on Prestige Points in the game.
Prestige Points are a new in-game currency that have been added to the popular MOBA in 2019, first announced as part of the 9.1 patch.
These coins can be used to unlock cosmetic items inside League of Legends, and here’s everything you need to know about the currency, and how you can earn them.
What are Prestige Points in League of Legends?
Prestige Points are an in-game currency that can be used to purchase prestige edition skins from the store for some of their favorite champions, such as Kali or Aatrox.
Prestige Skins are available in the game for a period of one year, giving anyone who wants to purchase them plenty of time to rack up Prestige Points.
How do I earn Prestige Points in League of Legends?
Originally, League of Legends players only had one way they could unlock Prestige Points, but on April 2, Riot Games announced that they planned to open up more avenues that allowed players to earn Points, that they could then use to buy skins.
Originally, Masterwork Chests were the only way players could get Prestige Points. Masterwork Chests are available to purchase in the in-game store, with the price set at 165 RP per chest. Players can also buy bundles, which saves RP if you intend to buy more than one.
Riot Games continue to host new events throughout the year in League, and now players will be able to purchase Prestige Points in the Event Shop when a new one launches.
The store will offer a one-time purchase of 100 Prestige Points who want to use them to unlock the event skin. There is no confirmed price for how much this will cost, but Riot have said that it will be “a bit higher than the price of the event skin on offer.”
Players who purchase the Event Pass won’t have to spend any more if they don’t want to, as the passes will now include Milestone Missions. These missions will reward players with extra Prestige Points, meaning if you would rather play to unlock the prestige skins, you can do so without splashing any more cash.
There is currently no official word on when these new ways to access Prestige Points will be implemented, but LoL fans will be happy to know that they are on the way, and will likely be added to the game in the near future.
