Wild Rift currently has a ton of content. The shop has a wide variety of skins and champions that players can browse through. These champions and skins can be bought using an in-game currency called Wild Cores. Here is what you need to know about Wild Cores and how to use them.
What are Wild Cores in Wild Rift
Wild Cores are in-game currencies used to buy items in the shop. Right now the options you have in the shop are champions and skins. Champion bundles are also available, offering players a chance to own a champion with their skins at a discounted price.
League of Legends PC player might recognize these currencies as the Wild Rift equivalent of Riot Points (RP). Sooner or later, there might be top-up promotions that allow players to gain more Wild Cores than what they usually would get regularly.
How to Top-up Wild Cores
To purchase Wild Cores, you only need to tap on the “+” button at the top of the screen. The store will open with a few options on how many Wild Cores you want to purchase.
You gain extra Wild Cores depending on how much you are spending, the more wild cores you purchase the bigger the bonus.
Here is a list of all the top-up options and how much Bonus they give;
- 375 Wild Cores (No Bonus)
- 650 Wild Cores (+25 Bonus)
- 1350 Wild Cores (+308 Bonus)
- 2100 Wild Cores (+ 275 Bonus)

If you run into any other issues while trying to make a payment, you can visit the official Google Play or App Store support website.
Free Skins Without Purchasing Wild Cores
So, you want to obtain skins but you don’t have any Wild Cores? Lucky you, there is a way to get free skins aside from in-game events, the Poro Store!
The Poro store is where you can purchase in-game cosmetic options like champion poses, emotes, baubles, and more. The currency used here is Poro Coin which you can obtain by participating in events or doing daily and weekly missions.
Where are the free skins, you ask? You can acquire a random skin after filling up the Poro Energy Meter. The best way to fill this up fast is by purchasing Poro Chests which can contain various cosmetic items and energy charges that will be added to your energy meter.
This takes time to fill up but the grind is worth it as you can get a random skin of up to epic tier. Poro Coins are very abundant in the game so you can probably fill up your energy meter in no time.
Wild Cores are just a small portion of what makes the game fun and exciting. The Rift Rewards event is currently on its final week and will end on Jan. 18 while the Yordle expedition is in its first week. Don’t miss out on these events to get random skins and champion chests.
