Crafting in League of Legends includes many mystical elements. And gemstones are one of them. You may have heard of them, you may even have some, but you don’t know what they are for. This guide will explain everything about gemstones, including ways to obtain and spend them.
What are gemstones for?
Gemstones are a crafting item that you can find in your loot tab. They are extremely rare and difficult to obtain. But in exchange for rare items, you can redeem equally rare rewards.
Those rewards include a Hextech skin lineup for multiple champions, exclusive Sentinels, and more. These items are not exclusive to obtain through Gemstones, but you must be very lucky to obtain them the other way around. For example, skins can drop from a normal Hextech chest but have a drop rate of 0.04%.
This set of rewards is not fixed, skins come and go from a gemstone shop, so if you’re in the mood for a skin, you can too.
Now the big question is, how do you get gemstones? Unfortunately, there is no easy way to swipe your credit card. There are a total of 4 gemstone sources.
- Hextech Chests: you should be familiar with these loot boxes. You can get them by playing and they require a key and can drop just about anything. Including precious stones. Opening such a chest has a 3.6% chance to drop a gemstone. Which isn’t much unless you have a full bank account to buy those chests for real money.
- Level up: Leveling up in League of Legends will start awarding you Gemstones. But only from level 150. And you will get guaranteed gems every 50 levels.
- Essence Emporium: This is a limited time Blue Essence sale held twice a year. During that sale, you can get gemstones for 50,000, 75,000, and 100,000 EA.
- Events: League of Legends often hosts various in-game events. Those events come with their own line of rewards and sometimes include gemstones.
The ways to get gemstones are quite time / money consuming. If you are looking for gemstones, I suggest you keep an eye out for the different events that happen in League. Other than that, that’s it for this guide and I’ll see you in the field of Summoner’s Rift.
