Q: What is Shards?
You gain Shards by earning rewards, just for playing the game! Shards are used to purchase wildcards in the shop.
Q: What is Coins?
A: Coins are the premium currency to unlock Legends of Runeterra (LoR) content. Coins can be used on wildcards and the Starter Bundle (for now). You can only procure Coins by spending some real-world money.
Notes: All random content is earned through rewards for playing the game.
Q: What is Coin Pricing?
A: The Coin pricing varies quite a bit depending on your local currency or region- some will see relatively similar prices (e.g., US dollar, Euro), while others will see relatively higher prices (e.g., Turkish lira, Brazilian real) or relatively lower (e.g., Japanese yen).
Q: Why I received fewer coins when purchasing them?
A: Here’s an example (in USD):
- Previous values
- $10 = 1380 Coins
- Champion Wildcard = 400 Coins
- New values
- $10 = 1000 Coins
- Champion Wildcard = 300 Coins
Notes: LoR currently operates with ~25 currencies, and the exact price changes vary further depending on content (e.g., Common Wildcards are relatively cheaper, Epics relatively more expensive). We encourage you to head to the store once the open beta starts and check out the various new price points for Coins and content in your local currency.
