Entering The Path of Champions

The Path of Champions unlocks once you've completed Legends of Runeterra's overall tutorial. If you've already done that, you're ready to jump into the adventure! You can find The Path of Champions by going to Play and selecting Labs.

You won't be going through your first playthrough alone - Jinx will guide you through some introductory encounters with a small premade deck.  If you've previously completed the Path of Champions tutorial, you'll be able to skip it this time around. Once completed, you'll gain access to the full Path of Champions experience and the World Map.

The World Map

All of Runeterra, right at your fingertips! The World Map acts as your hub, where you can select your champion, navigate the regions of Runeterra, and jump into World Adventures or a Champion Campaign.

What's The Path of Champions without, well, champions? You can find all of the currently available champions by navigating to the Champions button in the bottom right hand corner of the World Map -- the one that looks like a helmet!

The Champions screen shows all the champions available in the game thus far (with more to come!). Jinx will be the only one unlocked when you first play The Path of Champions, but you can unlock the rest using Champion Fragments. How? Check out our guide to find out!

World Adventures and Champion Campaigns

There are a couple of modes to choose from when playing The Path of Champions -  you can either seek glory in World Adventures or follow a champion's distinct story in their Champion Campaign.

World Adventures

World Adventures see your champions traverse Runeterra from the seedy ports of Bilgewater to the noble towers of Demacia. Each adventure has specific requirements to fulfill before they can be completed, so you'll need to use every champion at your disposal to conquer them all. Give our World Adventures article a look for more details.

Champion Campaigns

Each champion in The Path of Champions has a unique Champion Campaign filled with several adventures to complete. As your champion finishes Campaign adventures, they earn tailored rewards and can unlock more Campaign Adventures to traverse. Check out our our article on Champion Campaigns for a deeper look.
