Eternals in League of Legends is one of the newer stat-tracking methods added into the MOBA title by Riot Games.
These are additional milestones you can seek to hit just from playing League of Legends and locking in your favorite champions on the Rift! But what are Eternals? If you are new to League of Legends, or you haven’t explored them before, they can be quite daunting, but we’re here to explain all of that and clear up exactly what Eternals in League of Legends are.
League of Legends Eternals: Explained
Eternals in League of Legends are minigame-esque style challenges that you can complete for each champion, which hit certain milestones once doing so. These are mostly different for every champion, and apart from the starter series, each champion has bespoke Eternals for you to try and complete.
They are essentially giant stat-trackers for stats that do not get tracked normally. Examples of Eternals are such as things as hitting certain champions with a certain ability, or collective distance covered whilst using a movement ability, such as a dash or blink.
Talon has an Eternal in his Series 1 called Opened Veins, and it tracks the amount of damage he does to champions with his passive, Blade’s End. This stacks up over every game you play with the champion after unlocking the Eternal, so it carries over from game to game!
Eternals also upgrade your mastery emote once you rekindle them, adding bars atop your emote when you use it in a live game of League of Legends. As there are three sets available per champion at the moment, you can get up to three additional bars on your mastery emote!
To do this you need to reach certain checkpoints on each set of your Eternals to get its respective upgrade.
What types of Eternals are there in League of Legends?
In League of Legends there are six different kinds of Eternals, based on a rough class that the champion is placed in. This will judge what kind of Eternals a certain champion will have theirs themed around. These are:
- Empress – “Superior demonstration of skill in the heat of the battle”
- Guide – “Following the path to victory, or opening one for allies”
- Protector – “Keeping yourself and allies in the fight”
- Trickster – “Deceitful mind games or premeditated chaos”
- Warden – “Controlling enemies and the flow of battle”
- Warrior – “Crushing foes mercilessly on the battlefield”
A champion such as Aatrox has a Warden Eternal, Empress Eternal, and a Warrior Eternal in his Series 1, meaning that he covers half of the bases in just one series of his Eternals.
The Warden Eternal is all about crowd control, the Empress Eternal focuses on skilled damage dealing or showing off your flair, and the Warrior Eternal is about raw damage and kills.
Other champions will have a different combination and this is also reflected in the Series 2 set of Eternals for each champion. Aatrox has a Protector Eternal and two Empress Eternals in his Series 2.
What Eternals sets can you get?
There are three sets of Eternals currently available for every champion in League of Legends, these are:
- Starter Series
- Series 1
- Series 2
The Starter Series has the same Eternals for every champion, which are:
- Epic Monsters Killed
- Structures Destroyed
Each Series 1 and Series 2 is bespoke for that specific champion, and they are a lot more fun to complete than the starter series!
