You’ve managed to lock in Pyke all your enemies and have every one of them sporting the Ashen Knight skin. That’s because they have the Mythic essence they’ve accumulated. But how do they do that? 

Let’s look at Riot’s new currency, which has a revamped mythic content. Is there a free way to get Mythic Essence? 


What is Mythic Essence? 

The more fundamental question is, naturally, “What is Mythic Essence?” Before Patch 12.6 Riot offered two types of currency that players could use to purchase mythic content, such as prestige skins Hextech skins. Riot Games now has one mythic currency that you can use to get all kinds of mythic content. 

This is where Mythic Essence comes in. After League of Legends Patch 12.6, your gemstones were transformed into Mythic Essence. One Gemstone is equivalent to 10 Mythic Essence. 

Prestige Points did not cross OverYou must have used your points in the final-minute-shop before Patch 11.2.6 was live. 

  • Take a look at the JBL Quantum 100. They’re great for gaming, regardless of whether you’re playing MOBAs and Shooters. 

How to Get Mythic Essence In League of Legends

It’s easy to obtain mythic essence. If you have the money to buy the battle pass, you can get Mythic Essence. For any event, you can either save it or get it free. 

Get Your Mythic Essence For Free

You can get Mythic Essence free of charge. One way is to open loot chests orbs in order to get Mythic Essence. But, is League of Legends truly a game? gacha game? Maybe. 

These loot objects can contain Mythic essence. 

  • Hextech Chest
  • Masterwork Chest
  • Orbs from Missions

In-Client Events: Free Mythic Essence

Riot offered players the chance to get free Mythic Essence when they opened their new Mythic Shop. There is an additional in-client event that will grant players 10 Mythic Essence (which equates to 1 Gemstone), and 30 Mythic Essence. 

Riot holds the coveted title Essence Emporium Two times per year, but this summer will mark the end of the Essence Emporium. Riot will take over the event. They will execute 3 in-client missions each worth 10 Mythic essence as compensation. 

While I may not be the best at math, it is something that helps me to understand. You can earn 30 Mythic essence by simply completing these missions. 

What can you do with 30 ME?? Let’s find out what we can do: 

  • Mythic Skin Emote (25ME)
  • Random Skin Shard (10 me)
  • 50 Orange Essence (1 ME).
  • 150 Blue Essence (1 MEM)

You can also save it to make sure you have enough money for the new Ashen Knight Skin., or enough to get one of the prestige 2.0 skins These are also available. However, these will be a little more expensive. More than just 10 ME. This is your chance if you have some gemstones!
