The biggest event in League of Legends ⁠— and possibly Riot Games history ⁠— is finally here. The Sentinels of Light have arrived to push away the Ruination in the Rise of the Sentinels event, and it’s set to take Summoner’s Rift by storm.

Who will prevail: The Sentinels of Light or the Ruination? You can dictate the future of Runeterra in League’s upcoming in-game event, Rise of the Sentinels.

The major event is part of Viego’s storyline, which is reaching its end with the imminent launch of Ruined King: A League of Legends Story.

Sentinel & Ruined skins coming in LoL patch 11.14

The garments all feature stark contrasts between white, black, and gold, fitting alongside the themes of Sentinel of Light champions Lucian, Senna, and Akshan.

Pantheon, however, wasn’t so fortunate.

The Unbreakable Spear has joined the Ruination with a new Ruined skin in the same vein as Draven, Karma, and Shyvana earlier in 2021. He will also be receiving a Prestige skin through the event.

New “Ultimate Spellbook” game mode

New skins aren’t the only thing arriving during the Rise of the Sentinels event. League’s first unique game mode in quite some time is dropping on patch 11.14 when Ultimate Spellbook hits live servers.

After being in PBE testing for around a month, the new game mode gives you the chance to steal another champion’s ultimate to boost you up for the rest of the game. From Mundo’s walking around with Cho’Gath ultimate, to Lissandra ultimate’s galore, all 154 champions can be just like Sylas.

The mode will stick around for the length of the Rise of the Sentinels event.

The Rise of the Sentinels story will be free to play and runs until August 10.
