The new currency has been dropped, and we're all scrambling trying to get as much as possible. But, what exactly are our options when it some to acquiring it?
Mythic Essence is the newest League of Legends currency that has succeeded the Gemstones and Prestige Points. With patch 12.6, all of your Prestige Points have been scrubbed and your Gemstones have been turned into Mythic Essence, with an exchange rate of 10 Gemsote for 10 ME.
Now, to get the most obvious thing out of the way, the simplest way of getting Mythic Essence is, of course, buying it. If you've got some money, you can just get Mythic Essence by purchasing the battle pass for the event happening at that moment in time.
However, it's also possible to get Mythic Essence for free as well. After all, what would be the point of it, as the last two currencies gave us a similar option. The first option is to open different loot chests and Orbs, that may contain Mythic Essence as loot. The loot boxes possibly containing ME are:
- Hextech Chests,
- Masterwork Chests,
- Mission Orbs.
At the moment, the easiest way to get Mythic Essence is to play a game of League of Legends. By doing so, you will complete a mission given by RIot in celebration of the launch of Mythic Essence itself. To make matters even easier, you don't even need to win!
