Notice: Undefined index: status in /var/www/html/wp-content/plugins/posts-like-dislike/inc/views/frontend/like-dislike-html.php on line 27

Legends of Runeterra Progression like most collectable card games comes in multiple layers that intertwine with each other. Check out all the ways you can grow your LoR account and earn fancy chests.

Regions in Legends of Runeterra

There are six regions in the game: Demacia, Freljord, Ionia, Noxus, Piltover & Zaun, Shadow Isles. You may build a deck with cards from up to two regions. Committing to a region gives you rewards for each level with that region. The rewards are similar, as you can earn them for each region. This progress is not reset weekly.

Expeditions in Legends of Runterra

An expedition is Legends of Runeterra take on the (in)famous Arena mode from Hearthstone. You draft a separate deck and play opponents that did the same. Riot’s rules, however, are softer: you need to win seven matches without losing twice in a row. Once you reach six victories, it’s only one game that decides if you’ll end up with 7-win or 6-win rewards.

What makes Expeditions in LoR even less stressful is that you have two attempts (Trials) to reach 7 wins. You will be granted rewards based on your best performance out of the two.

Wins (best attempt)Rewards

1Random Champion Card, 150 Shards
2Random Champion Card, 300 Shards
3Random Champion Card, 600 Shards
4RCC, 600 Shards, Bronze Chest
5RCC, 600 Shards, Silver Chest
6RCC, 1,000 Shards, Golden Chest
7RCC, 3,500 Shards, Champion Capsule

It costs 3,000 Shards or 300 Coins to go on an Expedition. Alternatively, you may earn a token through Vault.

Legends of Runeterra Vaults

Weekly Vault is an additional chest incentive for all players and helps with your Legends of Runeterra Progression. You work your way up to better chests by earning XP. Completing all daily missions for the week will leave you at about Level 10. Reaching Level 10 or going above it is rewarded with an Expedition token. Progress is reset each Tuesday.

How to restore Piltover and Ionia Starter Deck?


How to restore Noxus and Shadow Isles Starter Deck?


How do I level up regions in Legends of Runeterra?

You have to commit to a region before starting a match. Unfortunately, if your deck has cards from two regions, you will still earn experience toward just one.

Will there be a progress reset/wipe in Legends of Runeterra beta?

No, the January 2020 reset from last year’s limited access was the last one. All progress from open beta will carry over to the release version of the game.
