Expeditions is a new game mode that you can access and play in Legends of Runeterra. In this Legends of Runeterra Expeditions guide, we are going to go over how this game mode works and what you can expect from it.

How Do Expeditions Work In Legends of Runeterra

When you start the expedition mode in Legends of Runeterra you build your deck over the next 15 rounds. You get to pick two champions. You can build your deck from there. In this mode, you can expect to see a diverse meta. A random assortment of Champions, Units and Spells is offered, and bundles are decided based on a potential deck archetype.

With all this mind, you should still keep your eye out for an out of the box synergy that could land you a win or two. It is this kind of critical thinking that will give you the upper hand in this game.

Legends of Runeterra Expeditions

There are two kinds of picks in the draft, Synergy and Wild. Synergy picks take into account your previous choices and let you take cards that specifically work well with your existing deck. Keep in mind that these are still random so you are not going to get a perfect match each time.

Wild picks let you pivot the direction of the deck that you are building. At times you can be forced to pick cards that might not seem optimal for the deck that you are aiming for. These can be great for a secondary plan that you might not have figured out yet.

Wild picks allow you to pick cards from more than 2 regions. This creates decks that you will only be able to see in the expedition mode of Legends of Runeterra. Be sure to take full advantage of this. You might take a while to figure things out but once you get the hang of it, this mode is going to be a lot of fun for you.

What are Trade Picks?

Trade picks allow you to swap your cards for better ones. This will allow you to get rid of the cards that are less useful and get the ones that you think will suit you better. This includes spell cards and minion cards.
