If you've been early looking forward to the next event in League of Legends: Wild Rift, your wait has come to an end. A new and exciting event featuring new champions, skins, new missions, and plenty of free rewards has just launched, and it's nothing short of amazing. 

The new event in Wild Rift is called Yordle Expedition, and as the name suggests, it features a handful of new Yordle champions! This event will be available from the 9th of January until the 29th of January, so you better hop into the Rift and start completing the missions!  

Wild Rift Yordle Expedition overview

In this event, Wild Rift players will delve deeper into the world of Runeterra, and explore the lore of all the major regions (such as Freljord, Demacia, Noxus, and more) all while getting rewarded with free champions! Is that good, you may ask? You bet! Champions can cost you a lot of Blue Motes, so if you can collect them for free, you're set.

New Daily Missions

Every single day for the duration of the event, players receive 3 new daily tasks. These tasks reset at 00:00 UTC, so you should always try to complete them within the day. If there is a mission that you haven't completed though, it will get replaced with a new one - and you bet you don't want to miss any of them.

The objectives for these daily missions are fairly simple. As long as you're actively playing a few games, you should be able to easily complete every one of them! The tasks you will encounter include getting 10 kills, casting your ultimate 15 times, and winning 2 games. If you play your cards (or should I say champions?) right, you could even complete them with just 2 games a day!  

As for rewards, you will be rewarded with 20 Steps and 90 Blue Motes per daily task, for a total of 60 Steps and 180 Blue Motes!

Region Missions - a new kind of side tasks

When you unlock a new region in the Yordle Progress map, you will unlock along with it a region task. Unlike their daily counterparts, the region tasks do not have an expiration date, except for the event final date (January 29th). So, you can continue working on these missions all throughout the event period. 

However, you can only have 1 region task at a time. To unlock a new region (and its respective tasks) all you have to do is complete your current one. But, there's a twist to this - the regions unlock server-wide, so if you're finished with your region tasks, you might have to wait a day until the server progressed to the next region.
