Netflix’s ArcaneThis series is extremely stylish and each character is full of detail. While the setting of Zaun and Piltover is dense with characters and conflict, it’s just a vertical slice of the larger League of Legends lore. If you’ve finished ArcanePerhaps you are looking for deeper lore in the Runeterra world. There’s nothing else quite like ArcaneIt is possible to find a wealth of information out there. League content that’s tough to sift through. If you’re looking for more, especially while waiting for the next season, here are some recommendations on how to start getting into the rest of the world.

Take a look at the different regions

The official Universe page collects all of Riot’s written lore, but it’s overwhelming to take in, all at once. The official Arcane promotional page includes a visual novel that is meant to be an entry into the world of Runeterra — quite literally, the player character is someone who was browsing the Internet before getting pulled into a fantasy world — but that’s not exactly canon.

It’s easier to parse when you dig into specific corners of the universe. You can explore the Universe page for a wide variety of areas, champions, and supporting characters. For instance, there’s Piltover and Zaun, which you’re familiar with from ArcaneBut you might be able to look into unknown characters, such as Camille. These comics and stories are a good way to get more information about the world. There are also links. For instance, there’s a Caitlyn story where she hunts down a Noxus infiltrator. Not only do you get some Caitlyn history, but also more information about Noxus. Starting there you may start reading about champions such as Swain or LeBlanc. These links will take you to the plot threads and other Champions. You will soon be lost in fantasy fiction. Some of it is quite good.

Ask the professionals

Even with the Universe collecting all of the lore in one place, it’s still a LotsIt’s important to sort through. Here’s where content creators in the community really pull through. An example is Necrit, who serves as the universe’s unofficial archivist, historian, and analyst. His videos give you a broad overview of the story, so it’s easy to learn all of it without needing to go searching for every piece. For instance, if you enjoyed any of the stories above, you can punch the character names in and search Necrit’s channel, and he’ll be happy to explain everything you need to know about them in depth.

Riot is constantly updating its game catalog with newer options.

It’s a great way to meet a handful of champions like Miss Fortune, Pyke, Ahri, or Yasuo.

Legends of RuneterraAnother good option is the one above. The game’s new Path of Champions mode includes short comics starring the Arcane cast in a more current-day version of Piltover and Zaun, and even though it’s not technically canon, these comics are super cute. It’s also a helpful way to see new sides of champions.

You are unable to find the right person for you. Arcane has ignited your interest, there’s a whole canon of League You are just a click away from a world of legends. It’s up to you where to begin.
