Blue Essence

Blue Essence, or Blue Essence BE, is one of the primary currencies used to unlock League of Legends content, the other being Riot Points. Blue Essence can be obtained by disenchanting champion shards contained in champion capsules that are awarded when leveling up. It can also be obtained with the First Win of the Day mission which grants Blue Essence 50 and 400 XP.

Blue Essence was first released at the beginning of Season 2016 as a way to not spend IP IP to unlock champions. It was then merged with IP Influence Points on patch V7.22.

Champion capsules are awarded at level ups and contain champion shards that can be disenchanted to obtain BE, activated to have a 7 days rental, or upgraded to permanently unlock the champion. The total BE awarded from a capsule has set probabilities, with a minimum of Blue Essence 720 and a maximum of Blue Essence 1260. Each shard can be disenchanted for 20% of the champion's purchase cost as Blue Essence BE. Upgrading a shard costs 60% of the champion's purchase cost as Blue Essence BE. [1] [2]
