Legends of Runeterra Patch 2.8.0 Details

Riot Games has announced that Champion skins will be making their way to Legends of Runeterra in patch 2.8.0 on May 19th, 2021, fulfilling one of players’ most popular requests.

New Event – Dark Horizon

Travel along the infinite cosmos on the Dark Horizon Event Road, with rewards from the furthest
reaches of the universe. A galaxy of new personalization items is also coming in the patch,
including Cosmic & Dark Star champion skins, as well as our first Legendary-tier board,
complete with its own Mega Guardian.

Champion Skins

Caught in an eternal conflict, Cosmic Zephyr Yasuo and Cosmic Exile Riven serve as
warriors to defend the light against the unspeakable horrors of the Dark Star’s thralls, Dark Star
Zed and Dark Star Shyvana.

Champion skins are a new way to personalize your favorite decks by taking them to an entirely
new dimension! Equipping a champion with a skin will alter the art for all copies of each of that
champion’s levels, as well as their accompanying flavor text. Some skins have entirely new
level-up animations and alter the appearance of summoned units (i.e. Dark Star Zed’s Living

New Lab – Duo Queue: Shared Spoils

Patch 2.8.0 brings a new rotation to Multilab:

  • Lab of Legends
  • Duo Queue: Shared Spoils (New in 2.8.0!)
  • Ultra Rapid Draw

Grab a duo partner and a few of your favorite decks. It’s time for an entirely new 2v2 experience
with independent lanes! In Duo Queue: Shared Spoils, each teammate plays their own 1v1
match alongside their partner. A choice of unique ‘supply drop’ cards are offered to a player on
each team every few rounds; the drops a player doesn’t choose are offered to their teammate,
so choose your drops wisely to support your team! If both players on a team win, their team
wins. If one player on each team wins their match, they’ll enter into a tiebreaker match to
determine the winning team.

Just like with other co-op Labs, the P.I.N.G. system has returned with new pings to
communicate with your partner – you can also drag and drop them on the board or directly on

Bonus rewards await winners after each victory, with a small chance to earn Epic & Champion Wildcards, or even Prismatics if you’re lucky enough, so fight hard!
