Honor in 2018 is seeing some changes based on your feedback. Fighting to win earns you more rewards that get better as you level up. New checkpoints between Honor levels let you track your progress. Just like Ranked, your Honor level resets at season start so you can claim rewards all over again. These changes will ship at season start!
There are now three checkpoints in between each Honor level. For every checkpoint after level 2, you’re guaranteed a reward to celebrate your progress. Checkpoints stop after Honor level 5 (because there’s no level 6), but you’ll still get rewards at the same intervals
Your Honor level resets at season start to a checkpoint between levels 2 and 3. Players who finished at levels 3, 4, and 5 earn a small boost depending on their level.
RESET 5 : [Level 5] ⇒ Level 2, checkpoint 3
RESET 4 : [Level 4] ⇒ Level 2, checkpoint 2
RESET 3 : [Level 3] ⇒ Level 2, checkpoint 1
RESET 2 : [Level 2] ⇒ Level 2, no checkpoints
RESET 1/0 : Level 1 and below do not reset
We’ve made some big adjustments to how rewards work. New keyless Honor Orbs drop at every checkpoint past level 3 and keep coming after Honor level 5. Honor Capsules now drop when you reach levels 3, 4, and 5. That means you’ll get fewer Capsules than before, but they’ll contain the most exclusive rewards. Orbs and Capsules give you better rewards with every level up. Here’s what you’ll earn every time you level up or reach a checkpoint.
LEVEL UP : 1 Key
LEVEL UP : 1 Key
CHECKPOINT 2 : Key fragments
LEVEL UP : Level 3 Capsule containing 3 Key fragments, a ward skin, and 300 Blue Essence or a higher value Champion Shard
CHECKPOINT : Level 3 Orb containing 2 Key fragments and 150 Blue Essence or a higher value Champion Shard
LEVEL UP : Level 4 Capsule containing 4 Key fragments, an emote, and 630 Blue Essence or a higher value Champion Shard
CHECKPOINT : Level 4 Orb containing 2 Key fragments and 200 Blue Essence or a higher value Champion Shard
LEVEL UP : Level 5 Capsule containing 5 Key fragments, Grey Warwick or Medieval Twitch, and 960 Blue Essence or a higher value Champion Shard. If both skins are owned, you’re guaranteed an emote or ward skin instead.
CHECKPOINT : Level 5 Orb containing 3 Key fragments and 250 Blue Essence or a higher value Champion Shard
