Ixtal is the place to be for those who want to get in touch with nature in the League of Legends universe. Full of elementalists, Ixtal is the perfect escape from the chaos in other regions.

Ixtal is a never-ending way of life. The people there have survived for many years. Through the Void, Ruination, and various wars, Ixtal has used nature as a shield from these evils. They view other regions as starters and nothing in comparison to their rich history.

However, let's take a look at the deeply historical region of Ixtal and who helped to form it.

Ixtal history

The Shuriman jungles beyond the desert wastes remain shrouded in mystery. This Ixtal region from League of Legends is one of pure natural energy. The people of Ixtal harness this to raise powerful elemental people.

The sophisticated arcology city of Ixaocan remains mostly free of outside influence. Wars and natural disasters have not touched this hidden natural gem. However, the endemic life in the area can be powerful foes to the region. From basilisks to dragons, it's a dangerous world out there.

Although this area has been painted as nothing but a natural wonder, the architecture is gorgeous. Palaces and large structures stick out from the bustle of the jungle floor with pure white power.
