Runes were enhancements that the summoner provides to their champion. This page contains a summary of all runes, their effects, and pricing, which may be historical in nature.

There was four types of runes, with three tiers. Within marks, seals, and glyphs, each has a "primary" stat group and grants the largest bonus in those stats. "Secondary" runes offer less. Tier 1 runes are 55.56% as efficient as Tier 3 runes, and Tier 2 are 77.78%.

As of V6.10, Tier 1 runes can no longer be purchased, and all Tier 2 runes have a cost of 1 IP icon.

As of V7.17, September 1, 2017, in preparation for the pre-season 2018 new rune system, all Tier 3 runes (marks, seals, glyphs and quintessences) only cost IP icon 10. Any IP icon 10 Tier 3 runes bought will not be refunded once the pre-season 2018 starts.

As of November 8, 2017, patch V7.22, all runes have been removed from the game. For more information see Runes (Season 2018).

Tier 3 Rune List

% of Highest represents the percentage of efficiency of a type of rune compared to the most efficient one. For Quintessences, one Quintessence as to be as efficient as three Marks/Seals/Glyphs. The closer the number is to 100% the more worth it it is to use.
