What are mythic items in League of Legends?

"Let's just play safe until I farm my Mythic item."

Each patch Riot adds to League of Legends is packed with new cosmetics, balance changes, and—if we’re lucky—events. Even though these three features alone are enough for most players, frequent updates are a way of life for the developer to keep competitive play in check and healthy.

Riot recently shared its plans for season 11 and it looks like items will start playing a much more significant role. Mythic items will help set the foundation of a new meta.

Riot described Mythic items as a cornerstone of most builds since they’ll have abilities that can redefine playstyles. These Mythic items look a lot like Ornn’s Living Forge and Masterwork items. Champions will be able to carry one Mythic item at a time, meaning you’ll need to sell one to buy one if you decide to change your strategy during a match.

Mythic items are set to hit the live servers during the 2021 preseason and Riot has shared a handful of them with fans already. It’s likely that the developer is still working on the concept to iron out the finer details and even the items it shared can see significant changes until the preseason kicks off.

The information currently available suggests that Mythic items will be the defining piece of every build with how they can modify other Legendary items. The items shared so far all carry a passive Mythic buff, but this also leaves a huge design space for Riot in the future. A mechanic like this has so much potential to grow and we could even see Mythic items that can buff active abilities or ones with active spells as their Mythic buff, which would undoubtedly make every League game more unique.

While their Mythic passives are what makes them stand out from the rest of the shop, the Mythic items also feature beefy stats and great buffs. These buffs are directly targeted to help a champion excel at its role, meaning they’ll be tailored for different needs and champions.
