The upcoming skin K/DA All Out Kai’Sa Prestige Edition on the League of marks the 27th addition to the Prestige Edition skin line.
While the first idea of Prestige Point skins was to make them feel special, the initial price of around $100 made it a pay-to-get skin and the special aspect was nowhere to be seen. Following plenty of negative feedback from the community, Riot changed the model and started allowing players to obtain Prestige skins with event tokens as well to extend their reach.
Here’s what you need to know about all the Prestige skins in League.

Out of 24 champions released with a Prestige skin, nine were obtainable with Prestige Points and 10 could be acquired with tokens from in-game events.
While the previous model of acquiring Prestige Points via real-life currency wasn’t deemed too successful, the current one allows for some leeway and gives the possibility for anyone who purchases the event battle pass to be able to farm up for the Prestige skin. While the possibility is there, playing a lot of games to obtain it doesn’t bring the “Prestige” feel to it.
After each year, the Prestige Points that a player earned in that year are reset. Riot said the intent behind this is to not allow players to stock up points for the next year’s skins and to avoid making them more common on release day. There will be special Prestige Point shops at the end of a year to allow players to spend their Prestige Points so that they don’t disappear in vain. This demotivates players who purchase battle passes toward the middle of the year, though. They won’t have enough Prestige Points for a skin and will have to wait for the shop at the end of the year to use their Points.
