Get your wallets ready, League of Legends fans.
Your Shop has once again returned to the League client, offering six skins at a discounted rate. While the skins won’t be around forever, fans have until Nov. 9 to snag a cosmetic at a reduced price. The personalized shop is unique to every player, offering skins for champions you’ve played in recent months. To access Your Shop, click on the lit-up icon next to the Store at the top right of your client. Players then select each card to reveal the six different skins at a discount. The cosmetics are then purchasable directly from the Your Shop tab. The discounted skins vary in rarity, but Ultimate and Legendary skins aren’t typically offered.
And bundle exclusives, loot exclusives, and limited skins are unavailable in Your Shop, as well as skins currently on sale. Players can get their hands on cosmetics that are no longer offered in the store for a limited period of time.
Recently, Riot released a list of champions that will receive skins including a new type of skins, Quest skins. They will be completely different to what we’re used of seeing and will feature new mechanics to allow players to feel the prestige and accomplishment of such a skin.
“We are testing a new skin type (not a new skin tier with a different price) that will be purchasable in the near future,” Meddler said. “It’ll have some new features with specific technical needs which is why we need to have it on PBE and tested in advance.”
Meddler didn’t expand on what “specific technical needs” and features Quest Skins will have. And it won’t launch in the next patch or in the “immediate future.” But it might hit the PBE soon.
The cosmetics may evolve based on your completion of quests. It’s unclear if they’ll change throughout a match or over the course of many games. But it can potentially add a fun mini-game to Riot’s MOBA.
Riot will update fans on Quest Skins closer to their release date. A champion skin refers to an alternate appearance (skin) and/or color scheme (chroma) for any given League of Legends champion. Expect to see these new skins on the League PBE and for them to hit the live servers in one of the upcoming patches. It’s going to be interesting to finally see these skins live after so much hype around them in the community.
