There will be major changes in next year’s League season
Riot games have announced they will be removing the level cap for next year, where players will also be able to earn additional loot from special pods. As the number of skin, champion and card shards will be increased overall, Riot has made a number of changes to the hex tech loot system.
As a first, in their post, Riot has mentioned they will be decreasing the amount of dust you get from each disenchant. In addition, blue essence and ip will be merged together (not sure why). Biggest of all, and a fairly poor decision by Riot, they have said you will now be unable to reroll temporary shards for a permenant skin or champion.
