ARCANE SEASON 2 COULD HEAD TO ONE OF THESE LOL LOCATIONS Photos
Topic maintained by (see all topics)

Riot Games and Netflix have confirmed that Arcane will be getting a second season. After the explosive end to season one, thereís still a lot of potential fallout that could happen in the cities of Piltover and Zaun. But one of the biggest benefits of the League of Legends setting is how expansive it is. Piltover and Zaun are just a slice of a larger world, and there might already be hints as to where the show could head next.

PILTOVERíS SECRET POLICE
While Caitlyn represents the law in Arcane, League of Legends fans know that thereís a higher authority that we have yet to see. Camille, a Champion from League, is a hextech augmented elite agent of the higher class. She has used the technology we see develop in Arcane to essentially become a murder cyborg crossed with a secret agent. The 2019 ďAwakenĒ cinematic shows Camille raiding a theater along with Piltover police, and itís possible Arcane might explore that further.


NOXUS
Arcane introduces a little bit of Noxus, largely through Melís mother, which suggests the empire could have a bigger presence in the future. For those unfamiliar with League of Legends lore, Noxus is one of the main threats; itís a meritocracy modeled after the Roman Empire. Thereís an extra layer of intrigue; Noxus is built off a base of dark magic, and occult groups manipulate the nationís politics from behind the scenes.

A conflict with Noxus is pretty easy to set up; the nation is depicted as relentlessly expanding, leading campaigns across Runeterra to expand their borders. Piltover, with its technology and riches, would make a tempting target.


SHURIMA
Shurima is a long-forgotten empire, swallowed by the sands of 안전토토사이트
the desert. This is a place where a giant golden sun disc once hovered over civilization, and that disc would elevate the emperorís chosen soldiers into being unstoppable, animal-headed god-warriors. The empireís internal politics eventually soured, and a sun disc ritual led to the end of Shurima altogether.


So, whatís the link to Arcane? Well, the hextech crystals that Jayce and Viktor use to kickstart an industrial revolution come from a sentient race known as the Bracken in Shurima. It seems probable that harvesting highly intelligent and empathetic creatures to make cool gadgets is going to have some backlash, and we might see that unfold in Arcaneís second season. Thereís also some synergy with Noxus, as theyíve expanded into Shurima during their conquests.

IXTAL
Ixtal is a relatively new region to League of Legends lore. The nation once was part of the Shuriman empire, but when things went bad for Shurima, Ixtal just isolated itself behind wild magic. Now, Piltoverís need for resources is pressing on the borders of this land, and its defenders are known for a sophisticated grasp of elemental magic.

We wonít be seeing Arcane season 2 in 2022, but thereís still plenty of League lore to discover for fans who want more. The recently released RPG Ruined King: A League of Legends Story focuses on the pirate city of Bilgewater and the spectral Shadow Isles, and itís a good place to learn more about Runeterra.
