One of League of Legends: Wild Rift’s most exciting events to date is here. The Yordle Expedition allows players to explore Runeterra featuring five new champions: Teemo, Lulu, Coki, Tristana, and Kennen.

The event will begin on Jan. 8 at 6pm CT and will run until Jan. 28 at 6pm CT. Players must complete missions and join the quest of bringing Yordles from Runeterra over to Wild Rift. Riot is also giving out a lot of rewards to players through this event.

Server sojourn

The Yordle Expedition will feature a progress map. As time passes, more areas will be discovered, producing region-specific surprises. Riot hasn’t revealed what these surprises exactly are, though.

Player pilgrimage

Daily tasks

  • Players can complete daily tasks to receive 20 steps and 90 blue motes every day. These steps will give players other rewards.
  • There will be three tasks given to players every day and will consist of fairly simple missions.

Region tasks

When a new region is unlocked on the Yordle Progress map, a “special region task” will be unlocked. These region tasks don’t get refreshed daily. Players are only given one region task at a time and will get more only after completing it.
