After receiving feedback from the League community that Prestige skins were merely expensive chromas and didn't live up to the exclusivity fantasy, Riot has made efforts to improve them. The latest examples of these updated Prestige Edition 2.0 skins are Star Guardian Syndra and Cyber Halo Janna, which have expanded the Prestige fantasy and given a fresh look to the skin lines.

During the Worlds 2018 event, Prestige K/DA Kai’Sa was introduced as the first skin of its kind, which led to the creation of Prestige Edition skins. This trend became popular among the wider League community, and as a result, Riot began designing and releasing Prestige Edition skins for selected champions on a regular basis.

How to get Prestige skins?

The developers of Riot have always valued the rarity of Prestige skins, even after reworking the Prestige Edition skin system. These skins cannot be obtained by purchasing RP, but RP can aid in acquiring them. There are three different ways to get your hands on your favourite Prestige skin, depending on whether it is featured in the events, Hextech and Masterwork Chests, or Mythic Essence shop.

Events

Seasonal events in League of Legends have now become a regular feature. It is very rare to see a skin release without an accompanying event and a new Prestige skin. These events usually have a limited-time event shop that offers many goodies like chromas, skin borders, and icons.

The event shop also features a new Prestige skin tied to the event and 125 Mythic Essence. The cost of purchasing the Prestige skin and Mythic Essence is around 2,200 event tokens. Once you accumulate enough tokens, you can choose to get the Prestige skin, the Mythic Essence, or simply use them to buy event orbs.

Hextech Chest and Masterwork Chests

Please note that Hextech Chests, Masterwork Chests, and specific event orbs can contain Mythic skins. However, the drop rate for these skins is very low, making it unlikely that you will receive one. Therefore, the best approach is to collect Mythic Essence and wait for the desired Prestige skin to become available in the shop.

Mythic Essence

Mythic Essence is a type of currency in League that was introduced with the Prestige shop revamp. It replaces Gemstones and Prestige Points. You can earn Mythic Essence from mission rewards, event orbs and capsules, Masterwork Chests, levelling up, and milestone rewards. Once you collect enough Mythic Essence, you can visit the Mythic Essence shop and purchase the Prestige skin you want.
