League of Legends categorizes RP cost of skins by quality


When you think about it, League of Legends skins are really all over the place as far as quality and price. Blackthorne Morgana has always been one of my favorite skins and it is priced in the same range as many other skins that don’t have nearly as much detail or separate particle effects as this particular one does. Every single aspect about the skin is beautifully crafted that I’ve always believed the only reason why it wasn’t legendary, was her voice wasn't reworked at all.

Riot Games has decided to slap the ole organization reins upon this whole skins ordeal. Through categorization of the past skins, Riot has deemed new prices for all current – non vaulted skins in the game. So in a way, you will now be paying more for the better skins. So where Blackthorne Morgana was once falsely placed with a cheaper RP cost, she’s moving up now to a tier that is between the standard skin and legendary.

These skin changes won’t go live until April 25th so you have plenty of time to look through the changes and either buy those skins, like Blackthorne Morgana, now or wait in case they fall into a cheaper tier. Three legendary skins are falling in price: Astronaut Teemo, Lion Dance Kog’Maw, and Piltover Customs Blitzcrank. If you have previously bought these skins you will receive a partial RP refund. No other refunds will occur.
