How to Open Wildcards in Legends of Runeterra

There are many ways to obtain cards in Legends of Runeterra. One of these methods is by using Wildcards which makes it very easy for beginners and F2P players to craft their desired decks!

This guide will teach you how to use Wildcards in Legends of Runeterra. Plus, we’ll give you some quick tips on how to obtain more Wildcards.

What are Wildcards in Legends of Runeterra?

Wildcards are a currency in Runeterra that lets you craft any card of the same rarity.

If you didn’t know, there are four types of card rarity in the game identified by their color:

  • Common — Green
  • Rare — Blue
  • Epic — Violet
  • Champion — Orange

So you can trade one Green Wildcard into a Precious Pet card which is a Common card.

Or if you want to craft a new Champion card such as Draven or Ezreal, you can trade one Orange Wildcard and you get a new Champion card for free!

The other methods to obtain cards are using Shards and Coins. However, as a rule of thumb, it’s always best to consume your Wildcards first, because Shards and Coins may be used for other purposes but Wildcards can only be used for crafting cards.

Here’s how to use Wildcards in Legends of Runeterra.

1. Go to your Card Collection

First, go to your card collections either by going to Collection -> Cards section, or when creating/editing a deck.

2. Select a Card you want to craft

Once you tap a card you’ll see which Wildcard rarity it requires, along with the cost in Shards or Coins.

You’ll also see how many Wildcards balance you have available for that rarity.

3. Tap the “Wildcard” button to craft the card

In this example, I have x2 copies of the Precious Pet card and I can craft one more copy for 10 Green Wildcards each by tapping on the Wildcard button.

Remember, you can only have a maximum of 3 copies of each card. If you don’t already have three copies, you may still craft that card. You can check how many copies you own by the three orange dots at the bottom of each card. Or if you tap the card, you’ll also see the counter on the top right corner.
