The League of Legends player community has a great fondness for finding unique skins, and many can only be obtained through micro transactions, going into Season 12, Riot Games has removed Prestige Points and Gems from League of Legends, replacing them with the new Mythic Essence and adding the rotating Mythic Store.
Something that seems quite curious to us is that, this allows players a second chance to get some of the most popular skins of the video game without a monetary cost, Prestige Skins rotate monthly and the coveted mythical skins every three months.
What is mythic essence in League of Legends?
Mythic Essence is a new form of premium currency in League of Legends. Replacing the old gems and prestige points, you can use Mythic Essence to purchase the new mythic skins, old Hextech skins, or unsaved prestige skins. The skins that are available can be found by clicking on the Mythic Essence icon in your Loot. This opens the Mythic Shop.
Can you buy mythic essence?
While the answer to this is effectively no, you cannot purchase Mythic Essence in League of Legends, if you purchase an Event Pass during events you can get 25 Mythic Essence as loot for completing Milestone Missions. This isn’t available to those on the free track, so while you’re not just buying Mythic Essence in bulk, you do need to use real-life money to get it with this method.
