news tip League of Legends: the store hides two rare skins! We explain how to get them
If we all know that Riot Games relies on the sale of skins to reap maximum profits, this does not prevent them from prohibiting themselves from promoting or even selling a few skins. The latter, extremely rare by definition, can sometimes be simply impossible to recover. Two of them however are well hidden in the shop. We will explain everything to you.
With over 1,400 skins available in-game, League of Legends offers players plenty of ways to stand out. While some champions have more skins than others, most of them have at least one or two particularly interesting cosmetics, or even many more. But while most people will be looking to own the prettiest skins that change animations as much as possible and suit their tastes, there are people who prefer to prioritize rarity. For them, therefore, it is more important to have a skin that no one else has than to have a very nice one but accessible to anyone with enough money to spend. And if it is sometimes difficult to recover particularly rare skins, there are still two of them that are both accessible to everyone, and yet so well hidden in the shop that very few people have them. We explain how to recover them.
- Extremely rare
- Do you have any left in the back of the shop?
Despite the fact that League of Legends relies on the sale of skins to remain lucrative, there are indeed some cosmetics that are extremely rare to obtain, or even impossible to obtain, despite a full wallet. We are thinking in particular of the skins offered to players who have finished a competitive season by being ranked Gold or above, or those distributed only at PAX for example.
Such a fact could seem completely counterproductive for a company like Riot Gamesbut be aware that some of these skins could not be relisted even if the developers wanted to. Indeed, there are laws that prevent Riot Games from bringing out certain skins like Kayle d’Argent for example, which was given exclusively to players who bought the physical version of the game, when it still existed.
If this is a potential problem for Riot Games, it is a real boon for collectors, who can boast of having absolutely unique (or almost) skins. To find out if you have one of these rare pearls, we refer you to our article on the subject.
If you feel like a collector but don’t have the chance to own one of the rarest skins in the game, don’t panic, we have a solution for you.
Do you have any left in the back of the shop?
Do you know the Gothic Annie and Sivir Huntress skins? You may have come across them in-game before, and yet if you look for them in the in-game store, you won’t find them among all the others. The smarter ones among you might even try to fetch them directly from your character or skin collection, but all you get is simple splash art and a nice “Unavailable” button. greyed out, as you can see below:
Still, we guarantee that despite the apparent impossibility of buying these two skins, you will be able to do so for some RP. To do this, you will have to go to the game storethen in the section championsnot “skins”.
Indeed, Huntress Sivir and Gothic Annie are two bonus skins exclusive to the purchase of two champion packs. Once in the right section of the shop, you will therefore have to go to the sub-category “Packages”and select the “Champion Pack” for Sivir Huntress, and the “Digital Collector’s Pack” for Annie Gothic. If you already own all the champions included in the packs, each one will only cost you 975 RP, which is the average price for a skin of this size.
If you don’t want to spend RP to buy champions but want both Huntress Sivir and Gothic Annie skins, you will need to unlock all these characters before buying the corresponding packs:
- Champion Pack (Sivir Huntress):
- Master Yi
- If we
- Dr Mundo
- Twisted Fate
- gang plank
- Digital Collector’s Pack (Gothic Annie):
Knowing that these two skins are far from obvious to recover, they are therefore considered rare even if technically accessible to everyone. Since the “Gothic” skinline will soon be back in the spotlight, buying the Gothic Annie skin would allow you to show off a little in advance by showing yourself with it.
