Regions of Runeterra


Runeterra is a world divided. Each region holds within it the secrets to unparalleled power and the champions equipped to carry you to victory. All that remains is a simple choice… Whose side will you chose? Will you brave the frozen wilderness and focus your gaze on the Freljord? Or will you pass through the Black Mist and face the spirits of the Shadow Isles? 

Legends of Runeterra has cards that appeal to a variety of playstyles. When you activate a region, your growth will result in greater rewards within your chosen realm.
