The mysterious Lillia’s Haiku item has popped up on League Patch 10.14. Now, we know its purpose ⁠— and it’s to get Lillia for free. Here’s exactly how you can unlock the token to get the new champion when she launches on Patch 10.15.

Champion 149 is here. Lillia is now on the PBE, with the “dreamy” new jungler available for testing. The “mid-range skirmisher” features a lot of consistent DPS in her kit with her Q, as well as the infamous sleep mechanic popularized by Zoe on her ultimate.

For jungle mains, it’ll be a breath of fresh air in the role, which has been largely dominated by tanks for the last couple of years ⁠— save for some token appearances from Graves, Kindred, and Nidalee.

Lillia is arriving on League Patch 10.15. You can get her for free if you find Lillia’s Haiku.

If you want to get Lillia for free when Patch 10.15 drops, you’re going to have to find the secret Lillia’s Haiku item in-game. However, be prepared to do some grinding over the next couple of weeks if you want to save 7800 BE.

What is Lillia’s Haiku?

Lillia’s Haiku popped up onto the PBE during the Patch 10.14 cycle a couple of weeks ago. It stated that they had “discovered Lillia in the forest.” However, it was locked behind a timegate, set to open on July 22.

The date is no coincidence. It lines up with the release of Patch 10.15, which we now know is the release date for Lillia.

Lillia’s Haiku is similar to Sett’s Calling Card, which appeared randomly before the Pit Boss’ release. Once players got 10 first bloods, they received the in-game item that allowed them to get Sett for free. It looks like Lillia’s Haiku is the same for Champion 149.

Unlocking Lillia’s Haiku is going to be a bit of grind. Much like Sett’s Calling Card, you’re going to need to put a few hours in to try and get it. However, if you do, you’ll save 7800 BE on Lillia’s launch.

The Lillia’s Haiku mission revolves around getting takedowns as a jungler ⁠— 350 of them. Takedowns are kills and assists, so you don’t need to worry about KS’ing teammates. Here’s exactly how you do the challenge:

  1. Start a matchmade game of Summoner’s Rift playing as a jungler. It can be Normal, Ranked, or Bot games.
  2. Get as many takedowns as you can.
  3. Rinse and repeat until you get 350 takedowns.
  4. Once you eclipse 350 takedowns across Patch 10.14, you will unlock Lillia’s Haiku.
  5. When Patch 10.15 is released, use Lillia’s Haiku in the Loot tab to unlock Lillia for free.

Most people are farming for Lillia’s Haiku in Intro Bots. You can queue up with four friends, each rotating through jungle, farming as many takedowns as you can. Once you hit 350, the token should appear in your Loot tab.

It’s by far the most efficient way to get Lillia’s Haiku, rather than spamming norms or ranked games in the hopes of getting the role in the first place, and then taking down human players. However, if you are already a jungle main, it should be a breeze.

Lillia, the Bashful Bloom, will be arriving on July 22’s League Patch 10.15. If you haven’t been keeping up, we’ve got everything you need to know about the Ionian jungler here.

League cosplayer descends from the heavens as amazing Dragonslayer Diana

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
