League of Legends players get legendary skin shards with Twitch Prime
League of Legends is getting its very own Twitch Prime rewards. The Summoner’s Crown Capsule has arrived on the game’s Public Beta Environment (PBE), meaning it should be available in the game’s next major patch.
The item showed up on the PBE last night. The capsule is similar in appearance to those that developer Riot Games has offered before as rewards surrounding specific events. This one, however, comes with some Twitch-style branding – it’s silver and purple, and filled with the little blue crowns that denote Twitch Prime status (which you can earn by linking your Amazon Prime account to your Twitch).
In terms of rewards, the Summoner’s Crown Capsule offers “a random Legendary-tier skin shard,” (via Surrenderat20), and you won’t need a key to open it. That shard can be used in LoL’s Hextech crafting system, where you can either convert it into a full skin for use in-game, break it down for in-game currency Orange Essence, or bundle it in with two other skins for a random skin reward of any value.
The capsule will be the first piece of LoL content released though Twitch Prime. Overwatch, Hearthstone, PUBG, and Fortnite have all previously offered loot through the system.
There’s no date attached to the new loot, but if it’s on the PBE, it’s likely to arrive with League of Legends patch 8.22. That’s likely to go live on November 8, which would roughly coincide with Twitch’s latest roll-out of loot at the beginning of next month, so keep an eye out over the next few weeks.
