Legends of Runeterra Regions

EditEvery card in Legends of Runeterra is sorted into a region based off a canon region of Runeterra Crest icon.png Runeterra. Cards within a region tend to share mechanics such as certain keywords and tend to synergise well with each other, and combining cards from different regions can lead to unique synergies and playstyles. Game Modes have specific restrictions on the number of regions that can be in a deck.

Legends of Runeterra Academy

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. Don't feel beholden to any one region, however. Your progress will be saved if you focus your attention elsewhere, allowing you to activate any region at any time.[1]


A deck can consist of cards from up to two different regions. A player can choose one region to progress in at any time, and will then gain more cards from the region when leveling up.


There are currently 8 regional card sets: Bilgewater region.svg Bilgewater e, Demacia region.svg Demacia e, Freljord region.svg Freljord e, Ionia region.svg Ionia e, Noxus region.svg Noxus e, Piltover & Zaun region.svg Piltover & Zaun e, Shadow Isles region.svg Shadow Isles e, and Targon region.svg Targon e. The mechanics and cards of each region are based off the eponymous Runeterra Map profileicon.png canon regions of Runeterra Crest icon.png Runeterra.

Bilgewater LoR Region.png
Risk and Reward
Across the Guardian's Sea, nestled amongst the Blue Flame Isles, Bilgewater Crest icon.png Bilgewater Bay is as lawless as the denizens that call it home. Smugglers and cutthroats lay claim to these shores, making a name for themselves with sharp minds and sharper blades. The land is not the only perilous place, for danger lurks beneath the waves. Are you prepared to risk it all for the ultimate prize?

Stand Together

Justice. Honor. Duty. Proud Demacia sits on the northwestern edge of Runeterra. Once a safe haven from a brutal war, Demacia Crest icon.png Demacia is now caught between the shifting tides of time.

Freljord LoR Region.png
Frozen Fortitude

In the bitter cold of the frozen north known as the Freljord Crest icon.png Freljord, the wilderness is torn asunder from a savage, three-way civil war. Those who call this place home must find the fire within to persevere through harsh conditions and stand as paragons of fortitude and resilience. Can you weather the path to victory?

Ionia LoR Region.png
Swift and Sure

Balance: the cornerstone of the First Lands we know as Ionia Crest icon.png Ionia. Once, it existed aplenty, with the spiritual and physical worlds coexisting together in harmony...but such serenity is fleeting. Noxus, bent on imperial expansion, brought their insatiable hunger to Ionia's shores. Though the empire was driven out, there is an air of uncertainty hovering over the land. Are you willing to pay the price for peace?

Noxus LoR Region.png
All-Out Assault

A brutal, expansionist empire where might makes right, Noxus Crest icon.png Noxus sprawls across the continent in a struggle for complete dominance. However, within the region's borders beats a heart fueled by the blood, sweat, and tears of its dedicated citizens, allowing any who would try for power to step forth and seize victory...if they're able. Do you have what it takes?

Piltover Zaun LoR Region.png
Machinations and Mayhem

Piltover Crest icon.png Piltover and Zaun Crest icon.png Zaun may seem worlds apart, but an unusual harmony connects them beyond mere proximity. On the surface, Piltover is a prosperous city of industry. Standing as Valoran's cultural center, innovation and ingenuity are prized. However, amidst the cliffs beneath Piltover lies Zaun. Swathed in a smog-induced twilight, Zaun thrives in the shadow of its sister city. When the brilliant scientists above find society too constraining, they journey below, into the toxic air to conduct their experiments. Will you choose to stay on the surface or chance what lurks beneath?

Shadow Isles LoR Region.png
Death and Sacrifice

The Blessed Isles Crest icon.png Blessed Isles were once a thriving, fertile land...until the king of the Isles, beset by grief, sought to defy the natural order of the world, bringing ruination to the land. Now the Shadow Isles Crest icon.png Shadow Isles, veiled by the sinister shroud known as the Black Mist, leech life from any creature who dares step foot on those cursed shores. Do you dare turn your gaze to the Shadow Isles?

Targon LoR Region.png
Align the stars
The champions of Targon gaze toward the heavens for answers, and sometimes the heavens gaze back. By the glory of day or the strength of night, all may shoot for the stars. Are you ready to conquer the summit?[2]
