Riot's Sentinels Of Light Event Impacts All The Runeterra-Based Games (And Even Valorant)
When you have multiple games set in the same universe, what's the point of doing separate events in each? Why not have everything happen all at once, across all your games, as a kind of "global" event? That's the approach Riot is taking with the Sentinels of Light, a cross-game event that's occurring all throughout Runeterra -- and that includes League of Legends, League of Legends: Wild Rift, Legends of Runeterra, and Teamfight Tactics.
In LoL, there's a new narrative adventure, Rise of the Sentinels, which lets you choose different paths as you progress, and a new game mode, Ultimate Spellbook, which lets you pick from one of three random ultimates to replace one of your Summoner Spells. Its mobile cousin, Wild Rift, sees you battling the Black Mist with Lucian and Senna, earning rewards and unlocking a new narrative experience throughout the month.
Legends of Runeterra gets in on the action by offering new Radiant gear for taking on the remnants of the Reckoning, and Teamfight Tactics players can choose to align with the Ruined King or the Sentinels in the new Dawn of Heroes update. That part of the event starts on July 14, while every other game has already started its event, running until August 10.
Even Valorant players can join in on the fun with getting some skins based on the event, the first of which (Ruination) is now available.

Finally, Riot is encouraging fans to "bring light to our world" by completing in-game tasks to help contribute to the Charity Drive Pool, which maxes out at a $4 million donation. Additionally, 100% of proceeds from the Sentinel Olaf charity bundle and related items will go to the Riot Games Social Impact Fund in partnership with ImpactAssets.
