During League of Legends‘ upcoming 2020 Spirit Blossom event, the game’s client will be changing in a big way. For the entirety of the summer festival, players will be able to jump into a new interactive narrative experience called Spirit Bonds.

In Spirit Bonds, players will try to gain favor with the various Spirit Blossom champions featured on the in-client map. As you gain favor with the various champions, you’ll earn blue essence, exclusive icons, and even tokens as a reward. You can also earn favor by completing champion-specific tasks for those you wish to develop deeper bonds with.

First, you can gain favor for specific champions by playing Spirit Blossom champions with their corresponding skins. But you can still gain favor by playing champions without the Spirit Blossom cosmetics equipped.
