Blue Essence Emporium is making a return to League of Legends, offering players to empty out all the unused Blue Essence for items that are otherwise available only for Riot Points. On top of it, Riot Games are bringing out new mini icons.

Riot Games have brought the Blue Essence Emporium out of the vault for another opportunity to get new Ward Skins, Summoner Icons and even skins and Gemstones with Blue Essence. The limited-time shop was originally announced to kick off at 5 PM GMT on 19 April 2018 but it hasn't happened at the time of writing. Nevertheless, it should be up and running soon enough.

The event will last for 12 days, and the Emporium will close on 1 May 2018 at 06:59 PM GMT. During this period, players will be able to get emotes and new icons, on top of the items mentioned above. There are also eight new icons of mini champions that are coming with the Emporium - Gangplank, Xin Zhao, Vayne, Caitlyn, Garen, LeBlanc, Nasus and Twitch. They will have an equal drop chance from the Mystery Mini icon box as the previous eight icons.

Players will also be able to get chromas for their skins and base champions for 2000 Blue Essence each. This applies only for mid-season chromas though, which means chromas released between July and December regardless of the year they were released in.

URFWick skin will be making a comeback at the same price of 150.000 Blue Essence but it will receive the same treatment as Championship Riven. It will be slightly altered and the players who bought it in the last Emporium's iteration will get the new look for free, as well as a loading screen border.

Rune Pages will be on sale for the first time since the rune rework and their price will be slashed by 50 per cent for either Riot Points or Blue Essence cost. All experience boosts and Summoner Name Change will also be on a 50 per cent sale for their Riot Points prices.
