Keyword Allegiance.svg Allegiance is a keyword in Legends of Runeterra icon.png Legends of Runeterra.

"LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png4 You must understand the weight of our banner. It flies for our king, our houses, our citizens. It is our unwavering belief in Demacia Crest icon.png Demacia itself. Hold it high. Show them our pride." - LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png8 Tianna Crownguard

"Y'know, friends love to help friends out. And you? I like the shine in your eye and the glint on your cutlass! It is a really, really nice cutlass." - LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png4 Yordle Grifter

  • This keyword is thematically associated with loyalty, commitment, friendship, legion, camaraderie, and assistance, but also manipulation.
    • In accordance with this, the effects of Allegiance often revolve around assisting other Unit card.png units, by LoR Power.pngLoR Health.png buffing or Keyword Summon.png summoning them.
  • Gameplay-wise, this keyword encourages cards to be put in mono-Runeterra region.png region decks, or conversely making them inconsistent in multi-region decks, especially with high numbers of cards from other regions. The level of incentivisation depends on the strength and importance of the effect, both to strategy and to the card itself.
    • This presents a trade-off to the player - every card from another region added to the deck would make Allegiance cards less consistent, but at the same time could provide other benefits - for example, in a deck built around LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png2 Mistwraiths, having an LoR Spell Slow Indicator.png5 Iceborn Legacy would allow all copies of the card to have a permanent Power and Health increase, or a LoR Spell Non-Slow Indicator.png1 Counterfeit Copies would allow the player to Keyword Summon.png summon more of them, but these cards would make LoR Non-Champion Non-Spell Indicator.png4 Wraithcaller less consistent, which is a massive trade-off in a deck partly built around its Allegiance effect.
