Daily Tasks and Region Rewards

Daily tasks will offer players 20 steps and 90 Blue Motes, with examples being "Get 10 Kills", "Cast Your Ultimate 15 Times" and more.

Unlike standard daily quests, these will replace existing quests even if you've made progress – so log in daily.

These steps will help players traverse the regions of Runeterra and earn new rewards.

Each region has its own quest, too, with 100 Steps and 25 Poro Coins up for grabs. You can only embark on one region quest at a time.
