Mythic Content Overhaul

Masterwork Milestones

[C] Hot on the heels of last patch's Phase 1 launch, we're heading into Phase 2 of the Mythic Content Overhaul! This patch, we're introducing an infinitely repeatable rewards track for Masterwork Chests. Any Masterwork Chest you open grants progress on the rewards track, regardless of whether you bought it, earned it as a reward, or received it as a gift. In addition, since we've adjusted random Mythic Essence drops from Masterwork chests from 10 ME to 5 ME, we won't revert last patch's buff to ME—it'll remain at a 4.2% drop rate.

  • 5 MASTERWORK CHESTS :: 5 Mythic Essence and 1 skin shard of any tier
  • 10 MASTERWORK CHESTS :: 5 Mythic Essence
  • 15 MASTERWORK CHESTS :: 5 Mythic Essence and 1 975 RP+ tier skin shard
  • 20 MASTERWORK CHESTS :: 5 Mythic Essence
  • 25 MASTERWORK CHESTS :: 5 Mythic Essence and 1 1350+ tier skin shard

[C] We're also introducing two adjustments to the Masterwork system relative to our original plan. Our original model would've led to Masterwork Chests granting more Mythic Essence than the new system has been tuned to support, and we felt it'd be better to do these changes now rather than later.

[REM] BOX IN A BOX:: Masterwork Chests no longer have a 10% chance to drop a bonus Masterwork Chest and Hextech Key

RANDOM MYTHIC ESSENCE DROPS FROM MASTERWORK CHESTS :: 10 Mythic Essence >>> 5 Mythic Essence (Hextech Chests still drop 10 ME)

SILVER LINING :: The above changes mean we no longer need to revert last patch's buff to Mythic Essence drop rates from Masterwork Chests (4.2%, up from 3.6%)

[C] We'll be following up soon with the other half of Phase 2, our first Showcase Milestone release!
