This is a guide for Legends of Runeterra's weekly Vault rewards. It covers how the Vault system works, what the card and Expedition token rewards across the various levels, the RNG statistics for card upgrades, and Frequently Asked Questions. It is intended for players of all levels of experience, from beginners learning how the reward systems in Legends of Runeterra work to veterans who just want to reference a specific Vault level or reward.
What Is a "Vault"?
Vaults are a weekly reward system that awards cards for playing Legends of Runeterra. Every Thursday, you will receive a new Vault filled with cards, wildcards, and shards based on how much XP you have accumulated over the previous 7 days. This system represents the primary means for gaining new cards in Legends of Runeterra as well as Wildcards and shards for crafting specific cards. Amongst the LOR community, Thursdays are commonly referred to as "Vault Day", and players will sometimes share screenshots of particularly lucky Vault rewards.
Your Vault starts each Thursday at Level 1 with three Bronze chests. Play games and earning XP will progressing your Vault Level and increase the value of your Vault. Levels 2 through Level 13 will improve the quality of the chests up to the maximum tier of three Diamond Chests; Level 2 will also add an Expedition Token and Level 5 will add a random Champion card to the prize pool. At Level 10, the random Champion card is replaced with a Champion Wildcard that can be used to craft any Champion of the player's choice. Each subsequent level beyond Level 13 will award one additional capsule.
The chests and capsules will contain cards which will added to your collection once you open them. The following image displays the minimum results for each capsule and chest -- in practice these will frequently upgrade into Wildcards, Epics, and sometimes even Champions.
The official names for the chests in order of tier are:
- Bronze Chest (2 cards)
- Silver Chest (3 cards including at least 1 Rare)
- Gold Chest (4 cards including at least 1 Rare)
- Platinum Chest (10 cards including at least 2 Rare)
- Diamond Chest (15 cards including at least 3 Rare)

So What Exactly Does Each Vault Level in Legends of Runeterra Contain?

|Level||XP Req.||Cards||Rares or Better||Guaranteed Champion||Expedition Tokens||Shards|
Don't forget that each Expedition Token will award additional cards based on how well you do -- at a minimum, you'll receive an Epic Capsule which will include 1 random Epic, 2 Rares, and 2 Commons.
