Riot Points are one of the two in-game currencies. They can be purchased with real money and are used to purchase in-game things to add convenience, extra customization options, or diversity to the experience. Examples of things that can be purchased with Riot Points are champions, alternate champion skins, or boosts, which are modifiers that increase the rate at which you gain Blue Essence or Summoner Experience Points. Apart from purchasing champions (also purchasable with Blue Essence), Riot Points cannot be used to directly affect gameplay.
