Masterwork Chests

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.

Event Passes

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.”

Milestone Missions

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.
