More new runes revealed and they’re awesome

Who doesn’t like free boots?

Riot has been slowly but surely revealing a ton of new runes for all of us to ogle at. Over the past few weeks, we have been getting a lot of new information. First we got the lowdown on what Runes Reforged actually is. Last week, Riot showed off the two paths. Now, it is time for the seemingly weekly rune dump. Here are four newly revealed runes.


Takedowns restore 15 percent missing health.

Ruined King’s Tribute

Every 4 seconds in combat your next attack deals damage to nearby champions and large monsters equal to three percent of your max health and heals you for [20 -75] percent of this amount based on level. Ranged Champions: Damage and healing are halved.


While above 80 percent health, gain up to +14 Attack Damage or +20 Ability Power, Adaptive (based on level)

Anything labeled as Adaptive adapts to your champion and in-game item build. If a Rune offers Adaptive Attack Damage or Ability Power, it will grant you one or the other based on whichever of Attack Damage or Ability Power you have more of within your items (defaulting to the stat listed first).

Magical Footwear

You get free boots at 10 minutes but you cannot buy boots before then. These boots grant you 10 movement speed (in addition to the other boots effects).

There will be fewer runes equipped at once, so they are gaining significantly more power. This is both exciting and scary, as being able to predict your enemies gold/advantages is key to higher level play. All of these runes are of course subject to change. As such, we are going to be holding some of our harsher takes until we have more definite information. Expect the Runes Reforged system to release at the end of this year, sometime in November.
