In this guide, we’ll teach you the most efficient way to maximize all the EXP you can gain each day in Legends of Runeterra.
If you want to craft more cards to build your deck, you’ll need to grind a LOT of experience points to level up your Regions and Weekly Vault.
Leveling up your Regions and Weekly Vault will give you rewards such as cards, Wildcards, and Shards.
How to Gain EXP in Legends of Runeterra
In Runeterra, you gain EXP just by playing games, regardless if you win or not.
However, some of these bonus EXPs have diminishing returns until it caps out and gives no EXP at all. For example:
- Losing PVP matches stops giving EXP after 10th loss
- Losing AI maches stops giving EXP after 10th loss
- Winning/Losing more than 5 matches with a friend stops giving EXP
Below is a complete list of all the ways you can gain EXP each day including their limits.
In the next section, we’ll use this table to come up with an efficient strategy to max out all the bonus EXP we can gain each day.
|Source||Result||Number of games||Experience|
|First wins of the day||Win||1||400 XP Bonus|
|2||200 XP Bonus|
|3||100 XP Bonus|
|PVP||Win||1 or more||200 XP|
|Lose or Tie||1-4||100 XP|
|11 or more||0 XP|
|Friend Challenges||Win||1-5||200 XP|
|Lose or Tie||1-5||100 XP|
|11 or more||50 XP|
|Lose or Tie||1-4||50 XP|
|11 or more||0 XP|
|Expedition||Win||1 or more||100 XP|
|Lose or Tie||1-5||50 XP|
|6 or more||0 XP|
|Finish||0 wins||50 XP|
|1 win||150 XP|
|2 wins||250 XP|
|3 wins||400 XP|
|4 wins||600 XP|
|5 wins||800 XP|
|6 wins||1000 XP|
|7 wins||1500 XP|
Note: The limits will reset each day (when the quests reset).
Best way to farm EXP in Legends of Runeterra
Now that we know all of the ways to gain EXP in the game and their caps, here’s a checklist of what you need to accomplish daily if you want to really max out on those sweet EXP points!
We try to rank this list in order of efficiency (i.e. reward per effort ratio) but feel free to do it your own way!
- Try to reroll for 1,500 EXP quests, or quests that favor your decks
- Trade 5 wins and 5 losses with a Friend while trying to help each other clear daily quests
- Surrender 10 AI matches
- Win at least 3 PVP matches
- Lose or Surrender 10 PVP matches
- Win 10 AI matches
- Do Expeditions if available
At this point, you can go on and continue playing more PVP matches. Each win will give you 200 EXP with no cap. You won’t gain EXP from losses if you already lost 10 times.
Winning against AI matches is also an option but after 10 wins, it only gives 50 EXP per win with no cap.
Finally, don’t forget to clear your daily quests for those huge bursts of EXP points.
Bonus tip: You can do daily quests on any game mode like AI or friend matches and they will count even if you surrender!
We hope this guide has helped you on how to farm EXP points and level up your vault and Regions faster!
