Emotes are cosmetics in the Legends of Runeterra game which a player can use to communicate. 6 can be equipped at a time in a deck from the Deck tab of the Collection. In-game, they appear as animated stickers that stick to the screen then peel away when used, though if too many are used consecutively there is a cooldown. Emotes can be purchased from the Collection or Store tabs, and owned ones can be viewed in the Collection tab.
