Lucky Crates

Lucky Crate

Lucky Crates is a Garena-exclusive system that functions like a lootbox. you can get different rewards like Orange Essence, Blue Essence, Key Fragments, Hextech Chests, Masterwork Chests, Champion permanents or summoner icons. By default, there are 5 Lucky Creates: Champion Top,Champion Jungle, Champion Mid, Champion Bot and Champion Support, which award a random champion permanent according to their respective lane. The Champion crates cost 250 Riot Points. Other types of Lucky Crates may appear during events.


Store and Riot Points

League of Legends Southeast Asia has different skin tier price per server due to the differences in average income per region. The available methods to get certain cosmestics may also be changed. Token costs for event items are higher than Riot servers. Some cosmestic items available in Riot servers are locked behind events and paywall while some exclusive contents can be obtained. For example, prestige skins are removed from Hextech Crafting in most Garena servers. Except for the Vietnam and Taiwan servers, all other servers follow the same skin rarity tier guideline of Riot Games with consistent pricing. In Vietnam server, skin price and skin tier are chosen based on the popularity of the champion and the skin line. In Taiwan server, prestige points were recently removed from Hextech crafting and Prestige point skins can only be obtained through lottery events. In addition, Garena servers also have their own loot systems separated from Hextech Crafting. There are regular discount events instead of weekly skin sales. Garena Shells are the currency used to purchase RP RP RP.

Trivia

Garena Wukong Volcanic Promo 01.jpg

  • In January 2020, Garena Philippines dropped the price of Volcanic Wukong from 975 RP 975 to 1 RP 1 until January 31, 2020. This is meant to raise awareness for the concerning activity of the Taal Volcano in the Philippines, which began to spew ash and lava fountains earlier this month.[6]
  • On July 9, 2018 2:16 PM GMT+8, there was an unauthorized modification of the League of Legends PH client lobby where a certain javascript code was inserted. This code performs blockchain mining on affected computers, which consumes CPU resources from these computers. Local players noticed that their client consumes a very high amount of CPU usage and slowdowns on their computers. League of Legends - Philippines Facebook page issued a statement here[7]
