Legends of Runeterra Weekly Vault Guide – Ranks, Rewards, Upgrade Chance

In a departure from many online collectible card games, Legends of Runeterra rewards players with an abundance of cards at the end of each week. By playing games and earning XP, you can level up your weekly vault rewards. Each vault contains three total chests which increase in rarity the higher your rank is each Tuesday, when the week resets. Our Legends of Runeterra weekly vault guide has all the information you need on this feature including how much XP is required, what each chest contains, the chance of each chest upgrading, and more!

What is the Weekly Vault?

As we mentioned, as you play each week you’ll upgrade your weekly vault. At Level 1 you get three bronze chests; Level 2 there are two bronze chests and a silver; Level 3, two silver chests and a bronze, etc. On Tuesday your vault unlocks, providing you with the rewards inside and resetting your vault progress to zero XP.

How Much XP is Required for the Weekly Vault?

At first you gain a level with every 1,000 XP, but this scales up over time. Eventually you’ll need a full 4,000 XP to reach the final rank.

  1. Does the vault keep progressing on Tuesday until you open it? For example, if I need 400 more XP to level it up, can I play a few more games on Tuesday before opening or is that chest locked at that level Tuesday morning.

    1. You get to open them whenever you log in next at which point you’ll start progressing towards that week’s vault.

  2. I think the MAX lvl vault rewards are wrong,
    I think it need to be 3 diamond chests instead of 3 platinum chests.
