Legends of Runeterra - Dark Horizon 2021

Untold darkness lies at the horizon's edge. Beings of pure cosmic beauty and monstrosities formed in the heart of a black hole face off, with all of existence hanging in the balance. Will you sacrifice creation itself to the all-consuming Dark Star? Or will you protect the heavens alongside the Cosmic Court?

The Dark Horizon reaches Runeterra on May 19, 2021 at 10:00 AM (PT) and will plague the cosmos until June 16, 2021 at 10:00 AM (PT). Unlock guardians, card backs, and more as you traverse the stars. More information on what the horizon holds can be found in the patch 2.8 notes.

Star Fragments and Progression

dark_horizon_event_road.png

The Dark Horizon promises endless rewards to those who explore its depths—glory, experience... and a unique currency called Star Fragments. The Star Fragments you acquire will earn you free rewards along the Event Pass. These Star Fragments can be earned in two distinct ways: wins and quests.

Wins

Eclipse your foes and bathe the heavens in your glory! For your first win of the day, you'll be rewarded 2 Star Fragments. Remember—the vacuum of space is relentless, and will only grant Star Fragments for PvP wins, not for wins against friends or AI. But fear not! Friend Challenge and AI wins still count towards the quests listed below.

Please Note

Friend Challenge will not count toward quests when playing in Labs.
