This tutorial starts off in a modified, more narrow, Summoner's Rift map, where you can only stay in the middle lane.

Tutorial step 1

You start the tutorial as Miss FortuneSquare Miss Fortune, at level 13.

Tutorial champions 1
Tutorial champions 2

Once SionSquare Sion is killed, you have to choose another champion to play, you can select one of the following by clicking on the champion's "bubble": AhriSquare Ahri, LuxSquare Lux, Master YiSquare Master Yi, or DariusSquare Darius. All the champions you play are level 13. You can freely exchange champions as many times as you want to. You can also switch back to Miss FortuneSquare Miss Fortune if you want to. When you destroy the first enemy turret you cannot select another champion for the rest of the game.

Tutorial Lux against Vel'Koz

After that, you have to start pushing foward, and destroy the enemy turrets. But while you do so, you will face the following enemies (played by IA bots), in this order:

  1. SionSquare Sion
  2. Vel'KozSquare Vel'Koz
  3. YasuoSquare Yasuo
  4. BraumSquare Braum and JinxSquare Jinx

The enemy bots will regularly respawn and try to slow your progression.

Tutorial allied bots

Once you've destroyed the first enemy turret, the game will pause, and 4 allied champions (played by IA bots) will spawn around your champion. The 4 champions are the other champions you could choose to play before: AhriSquare Ahri, LuxSquare Lux, Master YiSquare Master Yi, Miss FortuneSquare Miss Fortune, and DariusSquare Darius. They will stay near your champion and attack enemy champions, turrets and minions when nearby.

Old tutorials

Basic Tutorial - The Howling Abyss

You are guided through the most basic elements of League of Legends. AsheSquare Ashe was pre-selected as your Champion, in a one-lane map, with Heal Heal and Ghost Ghost as your summoner spells. You face TrundleSquare Trundle. An ally is also in the map, NunuSquare Nunu but he only demonstrates that you can't face a turret without any team minions. There is only one turret present on the map instead of the normal four. You finish the tutorial when the Nexus is destroyed. The only purchaseable item in the tutorial is Thornmail item Thornmail and the only ability that can be used is Volley Volley.

In the tutorial, you cannot die. If you start getting attacked a lot, the level starts reducing the amount of damage you take until it gets to 0.

Sometime around December 2010, the loading screen was changed. This most likely happened when the Battle Training came out. Proving Grounds was later replaced by the Howling Abyss and Master Yi was replaced by Trundle as well. This tutorial teaches the very basics of the game, such as

  • Not running into a turret without minions
  • Summoner spells
  • Abilities

Battle Training - Summoner's Rift

Advanced Tutorial background

Advanced Tutorial loading screen background. (Patch V5.10)

In November 2010, it was announced that Riot had been working on a new comprehensive tutorial. This tutorial would explain the elements of the game in a much more in-depth way, allowing the player to learn while they play. It sets a series of simple quests on Summoner's Rift for the player to complete, from buying items to killing neutral camps.[1]

On this tutorial, the player is taken through various steps of the champion selecting process, which the player may choose from two champions: AsheSquare Ashe or GarenSquare Garen (RyzeSquare Ryze used to be selectable too). The player is then placed with 4 bots in the blue team (these bots are always the same: Master YiSquare Master Yi goes top, SorakaSquare Soraka goes mid, while ShenSquare Shen and SivirSquare Sivir go bot), while the enemy bots are MalphiteSquare Malphite, SivirSquare Sivir, NasusSquare Nasus, AnnieSquare Annie, and Master YiSquare Master Yi. Throughout the tutorial, the player learns concepts such as:

  • Map awareness
  • Last hitting
  • Ultimates & Passives (Innates)
  • Jungle monsters
  • Lane names (top, mid, bot)
  • Basics about turrets (aggro pertaining to champions and minions)
  • How to win

Additionally, the player is given quests which are unique to the Battle Training and are not seen in normal games. These quests include clearing monster camps, killing minions, destroying all turrets in a lane, and destroying inhibitors. The player earns additional gold from completing these quests.

In the Battle Training, turrets have lower health than in normal games. The outer turrets have the same amount of health as turrets in a typical game, but the deeper one goes into enemy territory, the progressively lower turret health becomes, down to 525 on the nexus turrets. The health totals of the inhibitors and the nexus are unchanged.

The tutorial gives your champion 15 bonus attack damage, 30 bonus ability power, 25 bonus armor, and 31 bonus magic resistance in addition to runes and masteries.

If you lose the Battle Training, the game will end, but there will be no Continue Button, making it impossible to close the game by internal means.
