How to Buy Champions Fast

Purchasing champions at League of Legends is a simple process, as you log into the client, head to the store, and click on champions to see the champions that you don't have and pick any of you like!

Blue Essence

On the other hand, finding enough BE(Blue Essence) to afford the champions that you would like to try out from the store is a true challenge! Here are the things to do  to earn BE fast:

The first thing you can do to gain blue essence is by playing any game mode to gain XP and level up.

  • Keep in mind that the wins you get grant you more XP than losses, so focus on that!

The first win of the day always grants an extra 50 BE in League of Legends.

  • Keep in mind that there are some tasks that grant you a higher amount of BE for specific assignments, they show up in your League Client occasionally.

Champion Shards

Champion shards are the alternative to the effort you need to put in to obtain BE, they can be claimed by events, hextech chests, and honor capsules/orbs.

It grants BE at disenchant of the random champion you get, and if you are lucky enough; you might even get the champion you wanted to buy and unlock it for a discounted price!

If you have the RP for it, make sure to buy an event pass and spam your games to earn the required amount of points for you to be able to buy random champion shards as much as you can.

Even if that's not the case, you still will have plenty of champion shards if you invest your time and patience in it.

If you do not want to bother with the difficulties of earning BE or champion shards to obtain new champions, there are websites that you can check out for purchasing accounts with high BE and your favorite skin of the champ you want to try out.
