The League of Legends Battle Academia 2021 event is here. It’s a small affair compared to regular events, but there’s still plenty players can pick up ahead of Space Groove’s launch on patch 11.7. Here’s what you need to know.
School’s in session in Runeterra. The Battle Academia 2021 event has arrived in League of Legends.
While there’s only a small class party this year, you can still pick up some handy goodies if you play a few games.
League of Legends Battle Academia 2021 skins
Six new skins, including a Prestige, were added in the Battle Academia 2021 event. Caitlyn, Garen, Wukong, Yone, and Leona joined the Labrys God-Weapon Academy, with the latter support receiving the gold-and-white remake.
The skins feature the five champions in their very best school uniforms — although the mischievous Wukong and Garen aren’t looking as prim and proper as Caitlyn.
Most of the skins will set you back 1350 RP. This excludes Caitlyn’s skin, which costs 1820 RP, and Leona’s Prestige skin, which costs 100 PP. You can buy all the skins in a bundle for 9970 RP, with some loading screen borders and icons on top.
The new Battle Academia skins are now live in #LeagueOfLegends!
