A new Mythic item is joining the cast for the 2021 League of Legends preseason.
League lead gameplay designer Mark “Scruffy” Yetter updated fans on the upcoming support items today, adding another enchanter Mythic to the mix. Some minor tweaks are hitting the other three enchanter items, too.
Imperial Mandate should enable “ally aggression,” according to Scruffy. The item has AP, health, ability haste, and base mana regeneration. And the Coordinated Fire passive marks enemies hit by slow or immobilize spells. Allies that hit a marked target detonate the mark for bonus damage and gain movement speed for two seconds.
This is a great item for bot laners, allowing a perfectly executed CC ability to easily turn into a kill.
Moonstone Renewer also received a stat adjustment, while Shurelya’s Battlesong and Locket of the Iron Solari are now “usable by tank and enchanter supports.”
Riot described Mythic items as a cornerstone of most builds since they’ll have abilities that can redefine playstyles. These Mythic items look a lot like Ornn’s Living Forge and Masterwork items. Champions will be able to carry one Mythic item at a time, meaning you’ll need to sell one to buy one if you decide to change your strategy during a match.
Mythic items are set to hit the live servers during the 2021 preseason and Riot has shared a handful of them with fans already. It’s likely that the developer is still working on the concept to iron out the finer details and even the items it shared can see significant changes until the preseason kicks off.
The information currently available suggests that Mythic items will be the defining piece of every build with how they can modify other Legendary items. The items shared so far all carry a passive Mythic buff, but this also leaves a huge design space for Riot in the future. A mechanic like this has so much potential to grow and we could even see Mythic items that can buff active abilities or ones with active spells as their Mythic buff, which would undoubtedly make every League game more unique.
While their Mythic passives are what makes them stand out from the rest of the shop, the Mythic items also feature beefy stats and great buffs. These buffs are directly targeted to help a champion excel at its role, meaning they’ll be tailored for different needs and champions.

Though the initial dev vlog by Riot only included a handful of Mythic items, the developer released all the information regarding them in a follow-up blog post that went live on Sept. 29.
