What is the LoL Essence Emporium?
The Essence Emporium is a limited-time sale that allows League players to purchase more than just champions with their Blue Essence.
It's an event that's held twice a year, once towards the middle of the season and once towards the end that takes place in the preseason.
During the sale, chromas, icons, wards, emotes, and other special prizes can be purchased with Blue Essence. Additionally, each year's Essence Emporium allows players to purchase one skin.
The first Essence Emporium event took place in 2018 prior to Season 8's start. This means that a lot of champions, skins, and more have been released between then and the current year.
