Introduction
  • [You stand before a shimmering, golden tree.]
  • Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri: "Hello again. Itseems you've found your way."
  • Options:
    • "What is this?" -> "During the Spirit Blossom Festival, this place souls to return to the mortal world." -> Briefly, of course. Can't have spirits just wandering around up there! -> That would be... well. Degrees of normal. Depending.

    • "Spirit Blossom Prestige Skin" -> "During the Spirit Blossom Festival... (same as above)
  • "I can go home?"
  • Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri: "That's right! I'll help you along, of course. It's part of my job. There we go! Ready to send you up, up, up, to the mortal layer!"
  • Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri: "Did you have fun in the spirit realm? You almost messed up a lot of stuff by being here, you know! Mortals running around the afterlife, talking with spirits, kissing demons. What's next? Some sort of half-demon, half-spirit swordsman?"
  • Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri: "I'm kidding. That would never happen."
    • "I can never come back?"
    • "I don't want to leave!"
  • Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri: "Don't worry, you'll be back here soon enough. Er, you know... relatively soon. Not trying to sound ominous or anything. But you'll die. Everybody dies. And then you'll be back here! Fun, right?"
Condition
Reach S+ on at least one Spirit Bond
  • Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri: "Hey, wait a minute... I think someone's here to see you off! You must have made a real impression. Don't you worry, we'll all see each other again. But not for a long time, so make sure these last words count!"

For each champions you have reached S+ relationship with, there is a conversation. Go to the champion tab, and check their Epilogue conversation.

Ending
  • You stand for a moment under the brilliant light of the spirit tree.
  • Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri: "Well, that about wraps it up! Did you enjoy your time in the spirit realm? Because there's no coming back!"
  • Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri: "I'm joking, of course. There is absolutely coming back. Because you'll die! Oh, don't make that face. Everybody dies! Mostly everybody. Baring a couple exceptions. But for now, It's about time to send you back."
  • Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri: "Now, human. The moment has finally come. Before the festival ends, your time here with us will conclude. Do you have any last words? Now is your final opportunity, for you may not get this chance again."
    • "I never found out how I got here!"
    • "What if this happens to somebody else?!"
    • "I smooched a ghost! I love it! I have no regrets!"
  • Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri: "Then with those words, Iretur you to the world of the living!"
  • Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri: "Return, human! Return!"
  • You're back. Was that all a dream? It seemed so real...
  • Hm? There's something in your pockets... You pull out the many tokens of your time with the spirits, then quickly tuck them away before returning to the festival.
  • It seems like almost no time has passed at all. And though no one may ever believe you, these trinkets will always be the measures of your spirit bonds.

Spirit Bonds

Spirit Bonds Bond 02.jpg

On the eve of the Ionian festival, the veil between our world and the Spirit Realm is at its weakest. Cross over, and you can talk to the spirits there! You must enlist their help to venture back to the world of the living, so be sure to talk to any spirit you see on the Spirit Bonds' map. Be sure to click on their lovely faces to begin your interaction.

Note: You have to click on the champion's faces to begin interacting with them. You will not earn favor with any champions you haven't spoken to yet.

You'll then be given the opportunity to learn more about each champion through dialogue. The more you get to know them, the truth of these mysterious spirit's intentions will be revealed to you. The more favor you earn, the stronger your bond will become, and you'll unlock Episodes to progress a champion's story.

Gaining Favors

Spirit Bonds Rewards 01.jpg

You can earn favor in multiple ways, and while most can be earned by winning and losing in matchmade games, you can also earn favor by completing certain tasks to impress the champions you wish to develop deeper bonds with, as well as playing in the revamped Nexus Blitz. We'll be going deeper into what those tasks might be, so let's take a closer look at the paths you can walk down with your favored spirit.

Note: You will only gain favor with champions you've spoken with, which you can do by clicking on their faces on the map. No conversation started means no favor earned, so It's time to socialize some spirits lest you miss out on any valuable interactions.
Gaining Favors By Game Modes

You can play as any champion and still earn favor with any of the spirits that you've begun interacting with. You'll build your bonds with both wins and losses, as the spirits value all experiences mortals may endure. Consider playing as a specific Spirit Blossom champion to increase the missions you can complete simultaneously (such as winning a game in Summoner's Rift icon.png Summoner's Rift with Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri).

Lose a game 1
Teamfight Tactics icon.png Teamfight Tactics Win a game (Come in 4th or higher) 4
Lose a game (Come in 5th or lower) 2
Gaining Favor By Playing Specific Champions

You can earn favor by honoring a champion simply by playing as them, as well as playing with their Spirit Blossom skins! For example, if you wish to earn some extra favor with the Nine-Tailed Fox the Nine-Tailed Fox, then you'll be able to play as Ahri Ahri. Just remember that playing as a champion will only earn bonus favor for that champion.

Play as a champion who has a Spirit Blossom skin 1 favor for the Corresponding Champion
Howling Abyss icon.png Howling Abyss Play as a champion with their Spirit Blossom skin equipped 6 favor for the Corresponding Champion
Playing as a champion who has a Spirit Blossom skin 2 favor for the Corresponding Champion

Champion Tasks

All the spirits who've chosen to participate in the Spirit Festival will have unique tasks you can complete in both League of Legends and TFT.

Note: You won't be able to earn favor through these champion-specific tasks during Co-Op or versus AI. You'll still be able to earn favor through wins, or by selecting a champion with a Spirit Blossom Skin, for example, but Co-Op and AI matches won't fulfill the requirements below.

Completing these champion tasks grant additional favor. This can lead to high amounts of favor, for example: you can earn up to 13 favor by winning a Summoner's Rift icon.png Summoner's Rift game with Spirit Blossom Ahri Spirit Blossom Ahri without 0 death.

The Spirit Tree & Spirit Petals

When the moment finally arrives that you achieve an S-rank bond with a champion, you'll progress to special missions tied to the Spirit Tree. This magical entity grants unique spirit petals, which you can then give to an S-rank champion.

The choice to bestow a petal is the ultimate symbol of your efforts, and through this gift you'll be granted an unbreakable bond, along with a unique emote!

However, the petals are as rare as they are meaningful, and you will not be able to give this prize to every champion, so choose your relationships wisely. Your progress to earning a spirit petal is known as Spirit Petal Growth.

Epilogue

Once you've fostered an S-rank unbreakable bond with a champion, you may be able to journey back to the mortal realm with your newly forged memories to bolster you, but like every good fable the end is really only the beginning. If you achieve an even higher rank, don't be surprised if your new companions stop by to bid you a safe journey for whatever adventure awaits. These final interactions will occur during Spirit Blossom's conclusion at the end of the event.
