League of Legends has come a long way since 2009. Starting with 17 generals on Summoner’s Rift, this number has expanded to more than 140 generals over the past 10 years. The game has undergone a number of changes in Meta, from two Top to Top – Jungle, and even from hyper-carry the bottom line to the strategy of raising Junggle.
However, there is one thing that always exists and never disappears, it is the Runes Reforged. Runes Reforged is always a feature of League of Legends, allowing you to customize the way you play your favorite generals. So let’s look back at the runes reforged system and the way it developed over 10 years.
Runes Reforged (from 2009 to 2017)
Runes Reforged were not available from the beginning in League since its release in February 2009, but were added the 5 months later. Runes allows you to enhance basic stats for your champion, from damage to your revival speed. Jade is divided into 4 different forms: red jade, yellow jade, green jade, purple jade – each form offers different uses: Attack, Defense, Magic and Multipurpose.
You can have up to 9 red, yellow, green and 3 purple Runes with a total of 30 runes in a page. Although all kinds of gems have different effects, each type is biased towards a specific side, often referred to as the main index, and the others are called sub-indices. Red jade tends to attack, gold jade is more defensive, green jade is more about magic while purple jade is more versatile.
Every time you increase your account level, you can open a new runes until you reach level 30. You can also buy 2nd or 3rd level runes at levels 10 and 20, respectively, stronger compared to previous. Each account has only two Runes Reforged sites and if you want to own new Runes sites, you have to buy in the Shop for 6300 IP points to buy a new Runes Reforged. You also cannot correct the pearl during the selection of the champion, so it is necessary to buy a few more runes reforged.
The you play also determines how you adjust the jewel page. Purple jade increases the gold received every 10 seconds as a popular choice for Support generals before the three Equipment gold-plus were born. Red runes plus 0.93% critical critical rate for ADC, has the ability to change the Combat. In theory, there are many ways to build a jewel page only with third-rate runes, but only a few runes are feasible.
This Runes Reforged system was removed by Riot Games during the pre-season period of 2018, and Riot return the IP points they invested in their Runes reforged.
Runes consolidation function (from 2009 to 2015)
Another small aspect of the old jade system is the runes consolidation function. It allows the player to combine lower runes to obtain a higher rank jewel. However, this function is like a trap for players because it doesn’t really have any effect. Instead, this function can cause many new players to get into trouble, even for high-level accounts that are . It was removed in Patch 5.1.
Supplementary table (from 2009 to 2017)
From the time of the experimental period to the time before the start of season 8, the runes always exists along a separate page called the supplemental table. The supplemental table consists of three branches: Offense , Defense, and finally Utility.
The player with the maximum level in the game is 30, corresponding to 30 additional points, used to add up to 3 branches in the supplementary board. Each auxiliary branch has 6 levels, the higher support levels give you greater power. You must invest a certain number of complementary points to a new level eligible to unlock the next level.
Normally, the best strategy is to have one branch with 21 additional points before adding the remaining 9 points to one of the other two branches. The auxiliary tables can be edited during the selection process, so you can optimize your gameplay quickly. You also have up to 20 supplemental tables and are completely free to use.
Offense, Defense branches, and finally Utility branches were renamed Rampant, Wise and Consistent in 2016. Many initial support points were removed by the time when the modifications were changed or removed. out of the game. These auxiliary branches are redone almost every season, until they are completely erased in the pre-season of 2018, but their legacy still exists in the way we create runes today. .
Recombinant Runes (from 2018 to present)
Season 8 saw a revolution in League of Legends when it was overhauled the entire system. Runes and auxiliary board are consolidated to create a single common system called recombinant jade. The new system is divided into 5 systems: Precision, Domination, Sorcery, Resolve, Inspirataion.
By the 2019 season, the system of recombinant runes received a new change called the Indicator Piece. In the 2018 season, the stats are automatically added when you combine the runes. Although this makes the panel setup much simpler, this additional index sometimes does not seem to be optimal for the general to choose it. For that reason, these additional indicators have been deleted in place of the Indicator Pieces, which are chosen according to each champion.
Some new runes have also been added since the introduction of recombinant systems, such as Conqueror or Hail of Blades. But it looks like this system will exist in the League for a long time.
For long-time LOL players, there may be many people who still have runes for blue, red, purple, and gold and an auxiliary board with specific additional indicators. But most players like the simplicity of newer recombinant jewels. Looking back at the process of formation and development of the in-game runes system, can they see that their League has gone through a long history?
