Legends of Runeterra
How to Get Started in Legends of Runeterra
In this article, I present tips and tricks to get started in Legends of Runeterra, and how to increase your collection without spending money!
What is LoR?
Why you should play LoR
need to play LoR. I'm not going to put here that you need to stop playing another card game to play LoR, quite the opposite, but I believe there are some advantages there of which other games don't have. A big difference from LoR to other card games is that the game is free-2-play, which means you don't need to spend your money buying decks. All you need to do is play, and that will be enough to get you started. What's more, the game rewards you while you play, which I'll explain further below. Of course, if you want, you can buy decks (unlike other games, where you only rely on packs and loot boxes), which would save time. Another important point is that we have direct communication with the game's developers, either through twitter, discord or also with some texts on reddit. This communication helps the community to an inexplicable level, as questions about patch notes, bugs and other issues can be easily answered. You can find Rubin Zoo, one of the LoR developers, on his Twitter.
Where to Start?
Style and Undo,

Death and Spiders. To complete the prologue, you will have to do some missions and after completing them, you will enable all regions of Runeterra and also enable other game modes, such as ranked, normal game and others. In the prologue, the game already shows you the challenges you can do. They are small tutorials where the game teaches very well-explained how each keyword in the game works. In addition, for each challenge made, the game grants you experience (XP), which will help in your development. Another option that can be cool for beginners is the expedition mode, as it is a game mode in the "Draft" style, where you can have access to cards outside your collection and, thus, learn how each card in the game works. At the end, you get an epic chest, which can help you increase your collection! But after all this, should you start with the ranked or the normal game? I think the best answer is:
whatever you want. If you're a competitive person, there's no point in not starting your ranked journey right away, so you start your race from iron to master, which is the last tier in LoR. But if you want to explore the game gradually, you can enjoy it with the expedition mode.
