Legends Of Runeterra: Champion Card Abilities And Stats

In Legends of Runeterra, the new digital, strategy-based card game from Riot Games, you build decks centered around iconic League of Legends characters. These champions come from different regions of Runeterra, bringing their own styles and advantages to the table. For the many hopefuls looking to get in on the action during the preview patch over the next few weeks or the closed beta early next year, here's a look at what each champion has to offer.

At present, Legends boasts four champions for each of the six regions, offering 24 champions in total. We've included the card stats, abilities, and level up requirements for each champion with leveled stats and buffs displayed in square brackets to the right of the base numbers. Champions are listed by mana cost within their respective region's section, ranging from lowest to highest.
