There isn’t too much real crafting in this event, but there is special loot you can buy for Riot Points. (The crowd boos.)
Position Orbs - 295 RP each
These contain a random skin shard for a champ of the orb’s position, as well as a chance for a Gemstone, Gemstone skin or a crab bag.
It’s pretty self explanatory. If you pick the top lane orb, you’re going to get a skin for a champion like Aatrox, Wukong, Pantheon, etc. If you pick a jungle orb, you’ll get a skin shard for Amumu, Zac, Skarner, etc. It’s positional, so you shouldn’t get skins for champions you have zero chance of playing in the future.
This only drops from one of the Position Orbs and has six total skin shards. One skin shard will come from each role (assassin, fighter, mage, marksman, tank and support). Note that this is not positional role, this is each class role.
For more information on what champions fill out what positions and class, check out Riot’s listing on their Pool Party post.
