The Battle Boss event and crafting, explained

More Hextech exclusive skins are up for grabs.

Riot Games

Starting Thursday at 11 a.m. PT, a new event will become active to pair with the release of the Battle Boss skins.

It’s similar to the Yasuo and Riven versus event we had a little while ago, where you complete missions for rewards and you can buy passes for extra missions and loot.

To start the event, you have to complete the quest “Villians Rule!” to unlock the New Level icon and more quest lines. From there, well...there are a lot more missions to do.

Crafting

Completing missions gives you tickets and sometimes Orbs. Now here’s where it gets a little bit tricky.

Here’s the loot you can exchange tickets for:

  • 10 blue essence (10 tickets)
  • Key Fragment (40 tickets)
  • Battle Boss Baron Icon (80 tickets)
  • Good Orb (80 tickets)
  • Great Orb (120 tickets)
  • Mega Orb (150 tickets)

Orbs are the crates of this event and can be opened for loot.

Good Orbs give a champion shard, ward skin shard or a summoner icon, along with a chance to have an extra Good Orb, gemstone or a Hextech Annie skin shard.

Great Orbs have a skin shard inside, as well as a chance to get a bonus Great Orb, gemstone or Dreadnova Darius skin shard.

Mega Orbs have a legacy skin shard with a chance to get a bonus Mega Orb, two gemstones or the new Lancer Zero Hecarim skin shard.

You can buy the Good, Great and Mega Orbs for tickets or for 150, 250 and 295 RP respectively.

Missions

All players have access to the Game Star: Blitzcrank and Veigar missions, but to unlock Brand’s, Zigg’s and Malzahar’s you have to buy a Dungeon Pass (see below this section.) All missions except for Malzahar’s give passes. Malz’s missions give Orbs for completion.

Passes

If you love missions and you want to get more, you can buy a Dungeon Pass or the Mini Dungeon pass.

Dungeon Pass

This pass costs 1495 RP and has a lot of goodies inside, including:

  • Arcade Poro Ward
  • Arcade Poro Icon
  • Gemstone
  • 4 Great Orbs
  • Game Start: Brand Mission Line
  • Game Start: Ziggs Mission Line
  • Game Start: Malzahar Mission Line
  • Daily Missions

Mini Dungeon Pass

This pass costs 650 RP and comes with the Arcade Poro Ward and Daily Missions.

This is probably your best bet at scoring any of the rare Hextech exclusive skins, though Soulstealer Vayne isn’t up for grabs this time around. But hey, if you make out like a bandit on gemstones, you can just craft her yourself.

You’ll have until August 24 at midnight PT to do finish up all your missions.
