Between making new friends, getting good grades in school, and saving the galaxy from total destruction, Star Guardians have a lot on their plates. And in League of Legends: Wild Rift's Star Guardian 2022 Event, so do you!
Join the Star Guardians as they fight for the future by saving a ghost from their past!
Check out our Redeemed Star Guardian page for more information on the exclusive skins and content you can access by purchasing a Redeemed Star Guardian Pledge!
School might be out for summer, but the Star Guardians will still be battling the forces of chaos over the following dates:
Start - July 15, 2022 // 00:00 UTC
End - August 11, 2022 // 23:59 UTC
Although Star Guardian opens its doors (and our hearts!) on July 15, each week of the event will also bring new content. If you've hit a wall and are curious when you'll be able to progress or just want to know what's coming, check out the Weekly Star Map Overview below.
The Star Map
You'll be tagging along with the Star Guardians as they face their most recent challenge via the Star Map, which you can access at the bottom of the Star Guardian Event Page.
Star Guardian Spoiler Alert!
This page gives a COMPLETE overview of Wild Rift Star Guardian 2022, including content that won't be introduced until weeks into the event. Read on at your own risk!
Navigating the Star Map
Your path along the Star Map is laid out through a series of nodes, most of which must be completed in order. There are three types of nodes, and each will grant unique insight into the life of a Star Guardian:
|Node Symbol||What It Means|
|Dialogue nodes give you first-row seats to the Star Guardian story. You'll witness interactions between key characters and follow their progress as the plot unfolds.
And don't worry if you miss something—you can always revisit a dialogue node at a later time.
|Prepare for combat! These nodes pit you against creatures of chaos, who can only be damaged by your familiars' Guardian Power (more on that later!).
Any damage you inflict on a chaos monster will remain even if you leave the node, so you can chip away at them bit by bit.
Unlike other nodes, these ones can only be completed one time! Once you've defeated any given node's chaos monster, you won't be able to visit it again.
|Comics provide a deeper look into the story of the Star Guardians through beautifully illustrated panels.
Three comics are available when the event starts, with a new issue hitting the shelves (*ahem* Star Map) two weeks later and the final installment arriving a week after that. Much like dialogue nodes, comics can be visited time and time again. Unlike dialogue nodes, comics will be available to everybody at their predesignated release times regardless of your position on the Star Map.
Be sure to give them at least one read, since visiting each comic will earn you precious Star Candies to feed and level your familiars!
Only certain nodes are available for completion at any given time, which you can explore week-by-week below!
Weekly Star Map Overview
Whether you're curious what adventures await or simply want to see your potential rewards, we have you covered! Just expand any of the weeks below for a node-by-node breakdown of what awaits you on the Star Map. Black marks a dialogue node, while red means you should be prepared for combat!
Also note that each new week simply adds more nodes, so don't sweat it if you're lagging behind—your available baddies and convos aren't going anywhere.

Now that you know about the Star Map, it's time you learned about how you'll choose which friends will accompany you along the way!
Picking Your Party
Before we get this Star Guardian party started, you'll have to make your Star Guardian party!
…Wait, let's try that again.
*ahem* Once you've finished the Star Guardian intro (just hop into the Event page to get going!) and fought through Node 1-3, you'll select a party of three Star Guardians to serve as your active team against the forces of chaos. Since Xayah must always be part of your team, you'll initially be choosing from Orianna, Senna, and Seraphine to fill out your party of three when the event begins, with more friends to follow as the event progresses.
Don't worry too much about your party at first! You can swap out teammates whenever you like, and it pays to experiment to see which familiars best jive with your playstyle.
Battling the Forces of Chaos
Gooo Guardian Power!
About half the locations on the Star Map can only be completed by defeating an agent of chaos, each with their own imagery and HP. To deal damage, simply charge up your Guardian Power by meeting your equipped familiars' conditions, then let 'em rip with the Attack button!
Sure, the fights are simple, but preparing for them by generating Guardian Power—and leveling your familiars to create even more Guardian Power—is a bit more involved. Read on to learn more!
Each Star Guardian comes with their own familiar, who will charge up for event battles with Guardian Power (GP) whenever you achieve specific in-game conditions. For example, a level 1 Saki (Xayah's familiar) gains 10 GP for every takedown you get, while a level 1 Giru (Senna's familiar) gains 25 GP for every structure destroyed by your team. You can level up your familiars to earn even more GP by feeding them Star Candies, which can be earned by playing games or reading comics. No, seriously—check it out!
Just remember: you'll only charge the Guardian Power of familiars that are in your active party!
You'll only have limited options in the beginning, but progressing through the story will add new friends to your ranks—along with their familiars and unique GP-charging conditions.
Saki (Xayah's Familiar)
Since Xayah is always part of your Star Guardian crew, you'll always be charging Saki's GP whenever you get a takedown! Raise their level to earn a little something extra for each unique takedown.

|2||Gain 15 GP per takedown|
|3||Gain 20 GP per takedown Gain an additional 10 GP per unique takedown|

If you're known for causing a lot of collateral damage on the Rift, grab Giru and destroy some structures! You'll benefit even when you're not the one doing the destroying, but Giru's later levels increase your GP gains when you lend a hand in taking the structure out yourself.

|2||Gain 10 GP per 10 minions killed by team|
|3||Gain 15 GP per 10 monsters or minions killed by team|

Kiko (Ahri's Familiar) - Complete Node 1-11 to Unlock
Kiko's unique ability will initially earn you GP based on the collective levels of your active familiars. Level them up, however, and you'll get post-match GP based on the total levels of ALL your familiars—even the ones on the bench!
|1||Gain 20 GP per familiar level on your team after each match|
|2||Gain 25 GP per familiar level on your team after each match|

As eager to fight as their trigger-happy Star Guardian, Boki and Baki generate GP based on the amount of damage you deal to enemy champions. Level them up for a nice little boost from each kill, too!

|2||Gain 15 GP per 1000 damage dealt to enemy champions|

Riku (Rakan's Familiar) - Complete Node 3-10 to unlock
If you manage to reunite Riku with all their friends, they'll generate GP just for playing in a premade party! Level them up, and you'll get an even bigger bonus for every additional friend you bring along for the ride. The power of friendship ALWAYS prevails!
|1||Gain 150 GP after completing a match. Gain an additional 100% if in a premade|
|2||Gain 200 GP after completing a match. Gain an additional 100% if in a premade|

Leveling Your Familiars
Every familiar's true potential can only be unlocked by feeding them delicious Star Candies! How do you do that, you ask? By following these simple steps:
- Enter the Star Guardian Event Page
- Select the Familiars tab from the Star Guardian Event screen (Note that you can only feed the familiars of Star Guardians in your active team!)
- Choose the familiar you would like to level and tap Feed
- Select how many Star Candies you would like to give them (MAX use all your remaining Candies, or however many it would take to reach max level)
- Tap the Star Candy button in the bottom right corner
- LEVEL UP AND BLAST THOSE BADDIES!
Since familiars generate a lot of extra GP as you level them up (along with a chunky bonus at level 5), each level takes more Star Candies to achieve than the last:
|Familiar Level||Star Candies Required|
It may cost a grand total of 250 Star Candies to reach level 5, but it's worth it! Because in addition to pumping up your familiars' GP-earning potential, you'll unlock a special icon for each familiar you max out!
Familiar Max Level Rewards
If you fall in love with a particular familiar, earn their icon by raising them to level 5. Max out all of the familiars, and you'll even earn a permanent spawn tag!
|Reach Level 5 with Saki||
|Reach Level 5 with Giru||
|Reach Level 5 with Tocker||
|Reach Level 5 with Treble & Bass||
Treble & Bass Icon
|Reach Level 5 with Kiko||
|Reach Level 5 with Boki & Baki||
Boki & Baki Icon
|Reach Level 5 with Riku||
|Reach Level 5 with all 7 familiars||
Shining Star Spawn Tag (permanent!)
Of course, all of this begs the question: how the heck do you get Star Candy in the first place?!
How to Earn Star Candy
Star Candies are serious business. Feeding them to your familiars boosts their GP generating potential, which in turn makes it easier to blast through chaos monsters and earn all the awesome rewards available by traversing the Star Map.
Thankfully, earning Star Candies is as easy as playing some games and reading a few comics. Man, this really is like high school!
Star Candy Mission Rewards
Win or lose, every match of Wild Rift will net you some Star Candies. Sweet, sweet success!
|Complete a Normal or Ranked Match||10|
|Complete an ARAM match||7|
|Complete a Co-op Vs. AI match||5|
Special comic nodes will appear on the Star Map over time. Tapping them will open a website where you'll learn even more about the Star Guardians—and you'll get a bunch of Star Candies at the same time!
