League of Legends has a rich lore that makes everything inside the game quite meaningful, but that doesn’t mean Riot Games releases skins without unique backstories attached to them. Each skin line hits the in-game market with engaging alternate storylines, and it just adds to the overall quality and joy you’d get out of each skin purchase.
When it comes to the best and favorite skins of League players, however, it’s quite hard to make a judgment call. Selecting poorly designed skins is one of the easiest tasks in the world, but a lot of variables get introduced when it comes to picking the best of the best. Most players naturally end up picking the skins that were released for their favorite champions, but we mostly focused on the visual improvements that each cosmetic introduced to its respective champion while compiling the following list.
Taking visual effects into consideration can be a double-edged sword as well, though, since more recent skins will obviously be better than the older ones. Considering Riot improves each skin line, it isn’t really a surprise to see the older skins slowly fade away over time.
Here are the five best skins in League that’ll make you feel like you’re playing a completely different game.
- Storm Dragon Lee Sin Eternum Nocturne Solar Eclipse Leona High Noon Lucian Dark Cosmic Jhin
Out of these five skins, you should definitely acquire Jhin if you’re an ADC main. Jhin has been one of the most sensational AD carry champions released in the last five years. He plays completely differently from any other AD carry champion in the game, and he also has the most flavorful lore of the entire League roster. His skins are top-tier and makes him feel much more fluid to play.
We’ve seen some great Jhin skins in the past like the Blood Moon, which allowed his artistic side to shine, or High Noon, which turned Jhin into a Western movie villain. Dark Cosmic Jhin, on the other hand, can be the leading role in an interstellar thriller movie.
However, if you play as a support, then Solar Eclipse Leona looks just like your formidable warrior from any medieval-themed anime show. Anyone that fondly remembers the first season of Sword Art Online is guaranteed to fall in love with the skin, which is just beautiful.
If you don’t fancy any skins from the list above, worry not, Riot Games has plenty of other skins in store for you to enjoy.
