It’s said that League of Legends has earned Riot games almost 1 billion dollars, this is massive income for a free-to-play game. So where does this money come from? Microtransactions, mostly champion skins that change the appearance of your desired champion. Plenty of skins are released each year, the quality of skins increases each year too .But which one is the best? Find out here!
10. Project YI
Released on the 8th of September 2015, Project Yi is an epic legendary skin for one of League’s favourite noob stompers. All of the Project skins are amazing but this is the best and the only one on the list. Yi’s Ultimate especially is what makes this skin so great.
9. Zombie Brand
This is more for the animation rather than the particle effects. Although the particles are great, they’re pretty much just a recolour of the current particles. On the other hand, the animations perfectly fit the theme and make this skin truly unique.
8. God Fist Lee Sin
Rito’s favourite blind monk’s popularity was rewarded with a legendary skin. It’s his only skin with his full face revealed and was instantly a fan favourite upon its release on the 6th of April 2017. The particles and animations are pretty top notch, in fact if it was for a different champion then maybe it’d be much higher on the list. Unfortunately Lee doesn’t have too much in the way of animations/particles so there is ‘less’ skin compared to the skins higher on the list.
7. Star Guardian Lux
The original beloved Star Guardian skin, this piece of art really encompasses a new theme for Lux and provides her with some of the slickest particle effects in the game. This skin was so popular that several other skins, all almost as amazing, were released other champions too!
6. Mecha Zero Sion
I’d be lying if I said this skin wasn’t so high because of the ultimate. The model is very well made, great sizing and makes him look like a transformer. His ultimate though is the best part, it turns him into a vehicle and makes an awesome sound globally. Overall this is a really great piece of work by Riot!
5. Dark Star Thresh
Despite being one of the most popular champions in the entire game, Thresh didn’t receive a legendary skin until the 16th of June 2016. And what a skin he received, the first Dark Star skin that has bred more (teased but not released) and even its own game mode.
4. Arcade Corki
This has to be the best Arcade skin, Final Boss Veigar is pretty amazing but Arcade Corki is on another level. The particle effects are relatively the same as other Arcade skins, which is very good, but the model is what makes this skin so epic.
3. Spirit Guard Udyr
The rework that never was, Spirit Guard Udyr is famous for allowing Udyr mains to enjoy his visuals. His base skin is pretty horrific to say the least, arguably the ugliest in the game. This skin gave Udyr a new lease of life but some players will feel like he should have received this as a visual update.
2. DJ Sona
The first Ultimate skin since Pulsefire Ezreal was very highly received and easily one of the best skins in the game. It features different sound modes and completely changes the game for the player. You would think this skin is first but unbelievably, there’s one even better!
1. Elementalist Lux
Elementalist Lux has to be number 1 really, there’s just so much depth into it. There are 10 different models with their own particle effects, they match the elementals of Air, Fire, Water, Nature and of course the base form, Light. She can transform into mixed forms, like Magma, Storm, Mystic, Ice and Dark. It’s impossible not to put this first really.
