Events – Yordle Expedition

All In-Game Events

The Yordle Expedition event’s description below is taken from the official patch notes 2.0 article.

“We’ve added a whole bunch of stuff to League of Legends: Wild Rift, but it still feels like something is missing. Or someone? Perhaps this little someone (or someones) has been ‘missing’ on purpose, hiding in plain sight beneath homespun glamours or tucked away in a secret city.

But these someones, with their unfailing curiosity, can no longer resist Wild Rift’s call of adventure. Now they’re sprouting up like mushrooms across Runeterra’s greatest cities, bringing with them playful energy (and trouble) that can be electric, explosive, and even…purple?

Join us as we search high and low, leaving no Krug unturned in our quest to find Wild Rift’s latest champions. Pack your bag, polish your boots, and prepare your map for the great Yordle Expedition!”
