Did you guys know that your Blue Essence can have more worth than you might think? All those champions you've enchanted because they just weren't worth being in your inventory, and what can you even do with all this annoying Blue Essence?
Well, two-times a year there is a sale in your League of Legends client with which you can finally get rid of some of that annoying Blue Essence without merely wasting it on new champions. That sale we're talking about is none other than the Essence Emporium.
When Does Essence Emporium Take Place?
As already mentioned, Essence Emporium happens two-times a year. At the end of a season, so around December and halfway through the year, so around May and June.
When is the Next Essence Emporium?
The next Essence Emporium is going to take place between June 28, 2022 and July 12, 2022. This year's Essence Emporium seems to be later than in usual years where it hit the League of Legends client around May. But in 2019 the Essence Emporium also only took place in June.
Essence Emporium Hiatus
The Essence Emporium, according to the LoL Patch 12.12 notes, will be taking a hiatus after this. According to the League of Legends team, putting on the Essence Emporium disrupted workflow and would cut into other projects like missions and events.
Therefore, Riot will be putting the Essence Emporium on hiatus, making the shop better and more efficient to run. So, if you're going to want to use that blue essence, do it this time around, because there won't be an Emporium come winter 2022.
Free Mythic Essence
In the League of Legends 12.12 patch notes it was also stated to compensate for the missing Essence Emporium in the future, Riot will add missions to complete to earn 10 Mythic Essence per mission. They will add three missions, which means you could earn up to 30 Mythic Essence, which you can spend in the League of Legends Mythic Shop.
What Is Essence Emporium?
As already, mentioned, Essence Emporium is a unique shop which is added to the League of Legends client every year. It makes an appearance two-times, once halfway through the season and another time at the end of the season. Essence Emporium was first introduced ahead of Season 8 in 2018.
You can use your accumulated Blue Essence in this shop to get more than just champions, which is what you usually use Blue Essence for. So, if you've got some extra Blue Essence lying around and don't want to spend it uselessly on champions you won't play anyway, then this is a great opportunity for you to get icons, emotes and more.
What is Blue Essence?
Blue Essence is one of the currencies available in League of Legends. While you're able to purchase Champions with Riot Points — basically realy money — you can also use Blue Essence, which is much cheaper. Blue essence is often handed out in Champion Capsules, as well as Hextech Chests — when that happens, it's a real feelsbadman moment.
Blue Essence is the currency easiest to attain in League of Legends, since disenchanting any champion will give you Blue Essence. Since you get a Champion Capsule every time you level up, you'll be disenchanting a lot of them and raking in the Blue Essence in your inventory.
Where to See Blue Essence
Blue Essence is easy to spot in the League of Legends client. In the top right corner to the left of your icon, you'll be able to spot just how much RP you've got and under it also how much Blue Essence you have saved up.
What Can You Buy In Essence Emporium?
There are multiple things players are able to purchase in the Essence Emporium sale. For those of you who have saved up a lot, you might even be able to purchase a skin.
These are some content examples from previous years, though there could be some new things added in the coming Essence Emporium.
|Urfwick Skin||150.000 Blue Essence|
|Rune Page||3.150 BLue Essence|
Money Bags Emote
|75.000 Blue Essence|
Make it Rain Emote
|50.000 Blue Essence|
|Essence Collector Ward||6.000 Blue Essence|
|Mysery Ward Skin||4.900 Blue Essence|
|Mysery Icon||1.500 Blue Essence|
|Chromas||2.000 Blue Essence|
These are some of the items you'll be able to purchase in the Essence Emporium with all the Blue Essence you've saved up thanks to all the Champion Capsules. Hopefully you'll get a good new icon or ward skin. It is important to note, that you are guaranteed an emote or icon that you don't already own.
So, will you be getting something in the mid-year Essence Emporium, or keep saving up to pick up that Urfwick skin at the end of Season 12?
