Upcoming Permanent Tier 2 Rune Price Reduction to 1 IPHere's Riot Bubobubo with the announcement that Tier 2 runes will soon permanently be reduced to 1 IP!
For a quick TL;DR - On May 18th, the following will happen:
- All Tier 2 runes will be permanently lowered to 1 IP .
- Tier 1 runes will be permanently retired.
- Tier 2 runes will be accessible at level 1.
"Back in patch 6.5, we halved the experience required to reach Summoner level 30 and saw positive results across the board.
We also mentioned that last year’s permanent discount on Tier 3 runes was necessary preparation to ensure new level 30s could afford viable rune setups. Then we thought about it and realized we could do better, so…
We’re doing that.
On 5/18/2016 at 1PM PDT, we’ll be putting all tier 2 runes on sale permanently for 1 IP each*.
Additionally, Tier 2 runes will be accessible at Summoner level 1, and all Tier 1 runes will be permanently retired.
It’s also important to note: we will not be offering refunds for runes purchased prior to the sale, which is why we’re announcing it almost a month out. See you then!
*We can’t make these runes free because of the way the store is coded (and the League Client Update team isn’t taking a break just to update an old shop), but hopefully you’ll be able to afford the extravagance."
April Early Sales through April 25thApril's Early sales are up through April 25th! As a refresher, Early sales are recently released skins from the past four to six months that are on sale for a price one below their tier (so 1820 skins are 1350 RP, 1350 RP skins are 975, etc!). These typically happen at the end of a month and are announced with the monthly skin and champion sale announcement.
"The April Early Sale is officially here! To kick things off, the following non-Legacy skins from the past 4-6 months are going on sale from April 22 00:00 PDT through April 25 23:59 PDT!"May sales schedule for a look at everything that will be on sale next month!
