How to Unlock Riven and Irelia in Wild Rift

As of June 3, Riven and Irelia have made their Wild Rift debut, so you should expect to see them on the battlefield from now on. Both of these characters have arrived as part of the Broken Blades event, which lasts up until June 16.

Until that time, you can unlock either Riven or Irelia for free. Simply choose one or the other on the Broken Blades event screen by tapping the big button on the left side of the main menu. You'll be warned that the decision to pick either character cannot be reversed, so make sure you're certain of your choice before committing.

But making your selection isn't enough to grab a free Wild Rift champion. You have to earn it. Either champion has a series of missions that need to be completed in sequence to unlock your final choice. You'll get a bunch of Blue Motes and some accessories as well.

Riven or Irelia? Which Free Wild Rift Champion Should You Pick?

When faced with a split decision, it can be hard to come to a conclusion. Through the Broken Blades event, you'll be able to unlock Riven or Irelia for free. So which should you choose? Rather than focusing on which one might be OP, instead think about which you'll enjoy playing the most.

While both champions are melee fights, Irelia's kit means she's more of a sustained fighter than Riven. She builds stacks against her targets to deal progressively more damage over time, meaning she prefers longer fights as opposed to dunks and assassinations.

Riven, on the other hand, is typically built like an assassin. She's designed to pick off low HP or otherwise squishy targets with rapid movements and a burst of strength. Once she expends her skills, she won't have much chance to finish a target off.

Refer to the champion spotlight videos above each mission list to get a clearer picture of each character's moveset.
