After the League of Legends Eternals backlash, Riot explains three big changes

League of Legends Eternals

League of Legends’ stat-tracking Eternals were not received very well by the community after their initial debut, as players felt that the paid stat trackers were too expensive and just not interesting enough to justify the price. Riot announced a price reduction after the initial PBE rollout, and now the developers have detailed a major revamp to League of Legends Eternals.

There will now be starter sets that you can acquire with either 225 RP or 2500 Blue Essence, offering a way to get Eternals without spending real cash. These track broad, non-champion-specific stats like takedowns, structures destroyed, and epic monsters killed. They’re focused on encouraging teamplay, too, so none of them will require you get last hits.

Eternal capsules provide another way to get Eternals without spending RP. These rewards will be distributed in Ranked Splits, and will provide Orange Essence and a pair of random Set Shards. Set Shards unlock an Eternal for a specific champion when you dump enough Orange Essence into them, and you can disenchant shards for more essence if you’re not interested in a given reward.

If you do want to pay for Eternals, there are still plenty of ways to do so, but those have been spiced up, too. You can buy Eternals in per-champion set bundles, which include commons (non-champion-specific) at 75 RP apiece and uniques (champion-specific) at 200 RP each. The Series 1 sets, for example, include three unique Eternals for 600 RP.

You can also buy a complete Series 1 pass for all champions at a 90% discount – taking the cost down to 5850 RP if you want everything.

On top of all that, the Eternals themselves are changing to provide more engaging types of Eternal stats. Some examples include Lulu’s “Number of champions knocked up by Wild Growth,” which was changed to “Number of times 2+ enemy champions have been knocked up by Wild Growth,” or how Poppy’s “Number of bucklers thrown with Iron Ambassador” was changed to “Amount of damage blocked by Iron Ambassador’s shield.”
