What To Expect From League Of Legends’ Spirit Blossom Showcase

Continuing with their tradition of celebrating the changing of seasons, League of Legends (LoL) unveiled their Spring Blossom showcase on July 22 to tie in with this year’s summer season. This year puts the spotlight on Ionia’s Spring Blossom Festival. A time when the door to the spirit world is opened-and both living and dead could interact with one another. Now, let’s take a closer look at what this patch has to offer for avid League of Legends fans.

One Confirmed and One Teased Champion

Another champion in the Spring Blossom event is Yone. Yone and Yasuo are half-brothers and powerful swordsmen who live in a small village. However, Yasuo was accused of murdering their master following a Noxian invasion. For this reason, Yone was forced to hunt down Yasuo. However, Yasuo bested Yone. Yasuo still bears the guilt of Yone and their master’s death. Even though it was revealed that Riven was the one who killed their master.

Building Up the Lore

This keen eye on developing in-game lore between characters has been one of Riot Games’ ongoing projects to further flesh out their champions and make the world of Runeterra feel more alive and full of intriguing stories for players to discover.

Riot Games have begun their world and lore-building by releasing web comics series and one-shots that dive deeper into champions’ narratives. To date, they have released comics about Zed, Lux and Ashe. Ryze, Varus, Ziggs, Jinx, Nami, Miss Fortune, and Darius each have one-shot stories. All of these comics and one-shots are free online.

New Spring Blossom Skins

Players can also purchase chroma variants for each skin at the in-game store. Each chroma variant will allow players to purchase different color patterns for their Spring Blossom skins. Cassiopeia, Riven, Kindred, and Yone might also have Spring Blossom skins down the line.
