Runes add or enhance champion abilities and statistics. Players can use them to customize their Champions before the start of a game.
Runes are combined in Rune Pages. Before each match players choose the rune page they want to use. Rune pages can only be edited while outside of matches and during the champion selection lobby so choose something that works well with your Champion.
Centuries ago, magical artifacts called “World Runes” were discovered. In the decades that followed, knowledge of the Runes began to spread as more were unearthed. The world’s brightest minds studied the ancient glyphs, attempting to determine the powers they possessed. Few could even begin to understand the importance of their origins, or the sheer power held within them. Some surmised that the Runes were integral to the creation of Runeterra itself. The first use of these mysterious artifacts proved catastrophic, as they reshaped the landscape of entire nations. Mistrust quickly grew as those who knew of the Runes imagined such “Makers’ Might” being used as a weapon. Conflicts related to these magical artifacts were known as the Rune Wars.
Open warfare raged across Runeterra. The first horrors of the Rune Wars sparked fear and aggression among those who now realized the power at their command. and his master, Tyrus, sought to lock away every World Rune beyond the reach of man for the protection of Runeterra. Some complied with their pleas, while others dismissed them due to their newfound powers and influence. After an incident with Tyrus, Ryze alone continued on his journey in gathering all Runic artifacts so as to prevent another Rune War from starting and possibly destroying the world.
