As Worlds 2020 kicks off in Shanghai, you too can take part at home. The in-game League of Legends Worlds 2020 event is almost here, with plenty of skins, missions, rewards, and more to pick up to celebrate the 10th World Championship.

Worlds 2020 is just about here. As the pro teams gear up ahead of the September 25 start in Shanghai, you can get in on the action at home. There’s a Clash tournament running alongside Worlds, and as always with the big dance, there’s a huge in-game event too.

This event is one of the biggest in League history ⁠— and yes, we’ve said that quite a few times in the last 12 months. Riot keep upping the stakes every time though, and in commemoration of the 10th World Championship, they are really putting on a show.

There’s plenty of rewards on offer, including double the Prestige points compared to regular events. New skins, chromas, and more are also waiting for players taking part. Curious? We’ve got everything you need to know here.

What skins are part of the Worlds 2020 event?

For now, we know one skin line will definitely feature at Worlds 2020 ⁠— the new Dragonmancer set. There are skins for Ashe, Aurelion Sol, Brand, Lee Sin, and Sett, the latter of whom is getting a Prestige skin too.

If it wasn’t clear in the name, the skins are all Dragon themed. From clothes made out of the scales of slain beasts, to mythical effects brandishing their gauntlets and bows, the Dragonmancer skin line is both stunning and deadly.

However, it’s likely another skin line will feature at Worlds 2020. Riot have done multi skin-line events in the past, like at Worlds 2019, so expect to see a new release soon. There’s also files for Odyssey skins floating around. However, K/DA skins anyone?

League Worlds 2020 event pass

As with every event, there’s a Worlds pass on offer to help you get the most rewards. This one is a bit more valuable than past ones though ⁠— there’s 50 Prestige points on the line instead of 25.

The Worlds 2020 pass will set you back 1650 RP, or 2650 RP if you bundle it with the Obsidian Dragon Sett skin (a saving of 350 RP). It’ll automatically come with 200 tokens and 4 Worlds 2020 orbs, and will give you access to 30 milestone missions to farm some extra rewards.

These milestone missions can be completed by playing games of League of Legends or Teamfight Tactics. You get more points for wins, but as long as you are consistently playing, you should be in good stead to hit all of the rewards. You can find the Milestone rewards below:

Riot Games has confirmed League of Legends Patch 10.21 will be arriving on schedule, and we’ve got all the patch notes, balance changes, and more for LoL fans to dig through ahead of the new October 14 update.

This time around, it’s spooky season! The Halloween season brings with it new “Bewitching” skins, as well as a new set of “Odyssey” variants to join the space-faring collection.

Ominous buffs have also been delivered to high-skill cap marksman Aphelios, while Graves and Nidalee are paying the price for their huge dominance at Worlds 2020. Here are all the early details on League of Legends patch 10.21.

When is League of Legends Patch 10.21 coming?

The next League of Legends update is expected to be rolled out on Wednesday, October 14. It will begin in Oceania at 8am AEST (3pm Tuesday PT), and will be rolled out in all regions at 8am from there.

Players can expect a few hours of downtime.

Matchmaking and access to the LoL servers will be disabled around three hours before the patch is deployed. This will be around 5am PT on Oct. 14 for US players, and 5am GMT for European players.

Graves, Nidalee pay price for Worlds dominance

Deadly jungle duo Graves and Nidalee are on the chopping block in patch 10.21, after the duo have run riot at Worlds 2020.

Nidalee, the Bestial Huntress, has had a 92% presence at the year-end tournament group stage so far. Nine of her fifteen games have been wins, and the jungle pick has averaged a huge 4.6 KDA. Graves comes close too with a 90% presence.

Their domination in Shanghai, which has warped the meta around the jungle role, won’t live for much longer in solo queue. All three will be nerfed in the next patch, Yetter revealed in his fortnightly LoL update.

Camille and Pantheon support are two more carry picks that have had a solid spin at Worlds so far. The pair have been played in nearly half the group stage games so far, with a ‘modest’ 75% win rate showing their potential.

Finally, new Season 10 bot lane champion Samira will be nerfed again too.

Aphelios, back from the dead

It seems to fit ‘spooky season’ well that Aphelios, the bane of many ADC’s existences in the bot lane, could rise from the dead in League of Legends patch 10.21.

The Weapon of the Faithful will be getting multiple buffs. His lethality passive, ultimate mark damage, and “Gravitum” root are all getting minor boosts this update.

He will be joined by fellow AD carry Corki, as well as Karma, Udyr, and Trundle.

High skill-cap jungler Lee Sin is also in line for boosts. He, alongside Udyr and Trundle, should spike back into LoL’s jungle meta with their Oct. 14 stat increases.

Patch 10.21 debuts new Halloween, Odyssey skins

League of Legends patch 10.21 is actually bringing two new sets of skins to the game. One is based around Halloween, and one is even more futuristic Odyssey cosmetics.

Fizz will be getting a “Little Devil” skin, similar to Teemo’s 2016 cosmetics. Amumu will be handed a “Pumpkin Prince” variant, and Elise will become the next League champ to get a “Bewitching” skin alongside Miss Fortune, Morgana, and more.

All three new Halloween skins will be available for 1350RP next patch.

Five champions will also be getting new Odyssey skins in patch 10.21.

This includes Kha’zix, Aatrox, Sivir, Twisted Fate, and Karma. The five cosmetics will be added to LoL’s already popular futuristic skin line during the Oct. 15 update.
