This week in Vainglory News, we have the new Tea Party Grace skin, improved end of season rewards, fresh game lore, a reveal of the Ranked Leaderboards, a delay on the VPL Summer Open, and our recent favorite community content. Read on to see what you missed this past week in Vainglory News!
Tea Party Grace (Legendary)
Petal finally has some company at her tea table with the Legendary Tea Party Grace making an appearance in Update 3.4. With a huge load of changes, she is truly worthy of the Queen’s presence. Here are the highlights:
- Wonderland dress decorated with white rabbits & hearts
- Googly-eyed flamingo for playing croquet & bonking enemies
- Pink effects!
- Freshly animated flamingo
- Panicky squawking sound effects
Improved End of Season Rewards
With the Summer season approaching fast, SEMC has given us all the more reason to look forward to it with revamped end of season rewards. Where we used to just pull a few Opals and Essence even for reaching Sunlight level 50, players can now expect Glory, Keys, Blueprints, and Talents in addition to aforementioned currencies. Broken down below are all the rewards!
|ASCENSION LEVEL||GLORY||ESSENCE||OPALS||RARE KEYS||EPIC KEYS||BLUEPRINT CHESTS||RARE TALENT CHESTS||EPIC TALENT CHESTS|

In-game Ranked Leaderboards

Recently, Ciderhelm stated that a first version of Ranked Leaderboards would be coming to Vainglory in Update 3.3. SEMC hasn’t released the feature to everyone quite yet, but we were lucky enough to capture footage of our own. Leaderboards will become available to all players in Update 3.4 at the start of the Summer season.

The deadline for the Vainglory Premier League Summer Open registration has been extended to June 20th for both NA and EU. It’s unknown why SEMC decided to delay the scene. If you missed the previous deadline, this is the perfect opportunity to get your team into the competition.
This week in community content, we have a series of Vainglory tools, concept designs for guild improvements, and beginner’s guide to the item shop. To have your own work featured next week on Broken Myth, submit your content or suggestions to us via email.
