Hey, Summoners! Have you heard about Mythic Essence in League of Legends? It's a special in-game currency that opens the doors to a world of exclusive cosmetics and loot, such as those highly coveted Unvaulted Prestige Skins, rare Hextech skins, unique Mythic Emotes, or even some extra Blue and Orange Essence. But did you know that there are ways to get your hands on this rare currency without spending a dime?

1. Open Chests

If you've played even a little bit of league in the last few years, you're probably familiar with the chests and orbs that appear in your loot from doing challenges or completing games with S ratings, but Hextech Chests, Masterwork Chests, and Event Orbs hold the potential to grant you some Mythic Essence.

  • Hextech Chests have a 2.68% chance to reward you with 10 Mythic Essence
  • Masterwork Chests have a 3.5% chance to give you 5 Mythic Essence
  • Event Orbs have 4.11% chance of dropping 10 Mythic Essence

Exciting, right? But remember, to access these tantalizing rewards, you'll need to grind through matches, complete missions, and earn key fragments to assemble the keys necessary to unlock these coveted containers that might be holding onto your Mythic Essence.

2. Level Up

Got no keys or crates to open? Don't worry! It turns out you're also passively working towards free Mythic Essence with every game you play! Leveling up beyond level 150 grants you the opportunity to obtain Mythic Essence, and every 50 levels after that, you'll be rewarded with 10 Mythic Essence.

3. Download Buff

As all free things go these days, it will take time and patience to gather the Essence needed to get your precious item/skin from the Mythic store. The easiest way to procure the Essence is by purchasing Masterwork chests and their keys with RP, which you can get for free from Buff! All you have to do is sign up, run Buff while you play, and gather up those Buff Points, and then redeem them for a Riot gift card for some free RP and score some more chests to open for a chance at that sweet Mythic Essence.
