When Will Eternals Be Release?

Eternals will be heading into LoL Live client during 9.17 patch update. Following LoL typical bi-weekly schedule, it will be due to be released around 27th August.

How To Unlock Eternals?

Unfortunately for some players, unlocking Eternals for a champion require spending some RP (Riot Points) real-life cash.

There is a dedicated section within the Riot Store to browse all LoL champions and unlock their Eternals. Click on the Riot Store Icon located at the top right corner of the client and then click on the External Tab.

How Much Does Eternal Cost?

You may have noticed from the images above, Eternal will cost 850 RP.

Over at the nexus FAQ page, Riot Games gave us a little insight on why Eternals are only available for RP.

We took a look at how other games have tackled similar systems to see what felt good and what could use some improvement. Existing systems like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s loot boxes for StatTrak weapons and Dota 2’s subscription model for Hero Relics showed us that rarity was a core component for these types of systems. As a result of what we were seeing, we initially designed an early version of Eternals with a loot-based system, but it felt overly complicated and too punishing to be a satisfying approach for League. As a result, we went back to the basics: We’d package sets of three Eternals for players to get with RP. 

Additionally—and for complete transparency—Eternals were a huge undertaking to build. The system has a significant amount of new tech powering it to ensure that it works consistently and reliably. We also want to support and expand upon this feature for years to come, and with so many champions to build and maintain Eternals for, the only way we could justify supporting the feature was to attach an RP price to it.

Future of Eternals

As soon as Eternal rolls out in patch 9.17, Riot games will continue to expand Eternals with Set 2 for all champions in the game. The current perks and features for set 2 are yet to be finalised but there are a few ideas flying around where players might be able to skin their milestones.

For the time being, Riot Games will be letting enjoy playing with the Set 1 first.
