The Rune System Basics

The rune system allows players to gain bonus stats and effects that enhance their champion’s abilities. Here are some key things to know about runes:

  • You also get to pick a Secondary Path with 2 Lesser runes.
  • There are 3 Rune Slots that correspond to early, mid and late game power spikes.
  • You can create multiple Rune Pages for different champions and matchups.

Optimizing Runes for Your Champion

There are a few things to keep in mind when customizing runes:

  • Read each rune’s unique effect to understand what it does for your champion
