What are Rune pages?
Runes are unique attributes that can be given to your champion to boost their power and enhance their gameplay. There are currently five Runes available to choose from.
Each Rune page can be chosen before the match starts during champion selection. Or they can be saved beforehand in the Rune section inside your collection tab.
Buying Rune pages
Newer players will find it overwhelming to understand all the available Runes and manually set each Rune page before the game starts. Therefore, an option to create new Rune pages before queuing for a match is available. The game offers three Rune pages for free. However, there are over 140 champions in the game, and three pages are not enough for all of them.
To purchase additional Rune pages, you will need either RP or Blue Essence. BE is a currency in the game that can be obtained by simply playing more matches and leveling up. However, Riot Points are required to be bought with real money. Here are the different Prices for RP:
An additional Rune page can be bought with 590 RP, which costs about $4.50, €3.49, or £4.00; While with BE, each Rune page will cost 6300.

How do I set up Rune pages
There are six Runes to choose from; each is commonly known to be picked for a specific role. Resolve is used chiefly for Tanks; Precision is widely used by Fighters, Domination is taken by Assassins.
Sorcery helps Mages with Mana and Cooldowns; Inspiration is a creative Rune page for scaling champions. It is essential to understand your sponsor and their role so you can set up a Rune page that matches with your champion’s playstyle.
Name the different Rune pages.
To tell each page apart, you can rename all of your Rune pages except the preset builds.
- First, open any of the available Rune pages (Not the default ones)
- On the upper left corner, there is a small icon next to the title of the page, which allows you to edit its name. For example, you can rename it into “Garen Top” that way, it will help figuring out its purpose.
How many Rune pages do you need?
Professional Players and High Elo players don’t use extra Rune pages; they manually change the page based on the match-up. However, that level of experience will take a lot of time and effort to achieve. For average players, five Rune pages will be enough.
Each Champion can have different Rune pages; if it’s a poke matchup, they would instead go more defensive Runes. If it’s a counter pick match-up, they will prefer to go all-out damage Runes.
This is why it’s essential to understand the game rather than relying on presets builds and premade Runes. So go ahead and set up your Rune pages for your favorite champions.
