Wild Rift brought League of Legends to an entirely new audience, and even PC MOBA players could enjoy the game on the go. However, the lengthy tutorial at the beginning of the game can be overkill for a lot of players. Many players just want to know how to skip the tutorial in Wild Rift, and luckily, it’s pretty easy to do!
Wild Rift’s Tutorial
Wild Rift has an incredibly long tutorial for a mobile game. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing — the tutorial’s well thought out and does an outstanding job of teaching new players how each role works as well as how the team should function together.
However, League of Legends players or anyone who just created a new Wild Rift account may not want to go through the lengthy tutorial. And unfortunately, Wild Rift forces you to take some actions and can be about a thirty-minute time sink just to get out of everything (which is still better than the hours of tutorial content there truly is).
How to Skip Wild Rift’s Tutorial Beginning
Once you’ve created an account in Wild Rift, you’ll be asked to choose a champion. Once you’ve picked your champion, then you’ll be transported into a game to do a very basic tutorial. This can be skipped by tapping the Skip button in the top right of the screen, but you’ll need to buy items before you’ll be able actually to get out of the mock game.
The AI Match You Can’t Skip
Afterward, you’ll be directed to tap a few things, which the game won’t let you get around. This will lead you to take a small test to pick a champion to try, and from there you’ll be forced to start an AI match.
Unfortunately, this Wild Rift match is a part of the tutorial you can’t skip no matter how go about it. In a normal game, you’d be able to early surrender at 5 minutes or regular surrender at 9 minutes, but the team has to agree. Since this match is with bots, they’ll always shut down any surrender vote, forcing you to finish the match.
For most people who know what they’re doing, this should take no longer than 20 minutes. The AI champions on your team are pretty good at the game, but they won’t let you rush a victory, either.
Since the point of the tutorial is to learn how the game works, your team will rotate between taking lanes, getting Rift Herald, and conquering dragons. Even if you happen to push your lane all the way to the enemy’s Inhibitor, your team won’t join you and end the game until the rest of the lanes are pushed up there as well.
Luckily, this is the only real time sink you’ll need to do for Wild Rift’s tutorial.
The Rest of the Wild Rift Tutorial
After you finish the AI match, Wild Rift will prompt you to tap a few more things. It will ultimately lead you to start another game, but you don’t actually have to do that. Once you notice the giant arrow leading you through the tutorial has disappeared, you can tap on an X in the right-hand corner of the screen.
This will take you to the home screen for Wild Rift. From there, you can play the game like normal and not worry about the tutorial.
How to Get Back to the Tutorial
The game makes it easy to get back to the Wild Rift tutorial. On the home page, simply click the tutorial icon on the left side of the screen. This will let you go through the tutorial at your pace, which can be helpful considering there are plenty of rewards to get, like champions or cosmetic icons.
