League of Legends could be renamed League of Skins with the number of skins that Riot pumps out each year. It’s understandable, though, since the game is mostly free safe for the cosmetic items players can spend money on. So, what new skins can we find in LoL this year?

We're halfway through 2022 and it's important to know what you can buy with your precious RP, right? With it getting more expensive in the coming month, we have to know what to pick up with our money so we can look sweaty on the rift.

League of Legends Skins: Which LoL-Champs are Confirmed for New Skins in 2022?

During the season 12 live stream Riot revealed that a bunch of champions that haven't gotten skins in a while will be receiving skins. Those champions include: 

  • Gangplank - The Betrayer
  • Fiddlesticks - Star Guardian Skin
  • Rek'Sai - Elderwood Skin
  • Trundle - Fright Night Skin
  • Rell - Star Guardian Skin
  • Orianna - Bee Skin
  • Heimerdinger - Bee Skin

Rek'Sai received her skin in the first patch of 2022, getting an Elderwood skin and Heimerdinger also already got his skin of 2022 in Patch 12.5 with the bee skins. Heimerstinger is such a perfect name. 

So these are the skins we know will be coming quite soon in the year. We also know that with the Udyr rework his skins are also getting an  overhaul – which means new splash arts and new textures. So that could count as ‘new’ skins as well.

Gothic Skins Reworked as Fright Night Skins

The community has voted and decided that this year Riot is going to rework the gothic skin line. The whole skin line was completely revamped and instead of victorian goth we now get a whole new goth aesthetic which reminds us of our favorite movies from our childhood like the Ghost Bride and Nightmare Before Christmas. 

Six champions will be getting Fright Night skins and these look incredible! 

Star Nemesis Fiddlesticks Released in 2022

Another champion in desperate need of a skin is Fiddlesticks. We used to bemoan the fact that Ornn was not receiving anything from Riot, but now it’s time to beg for the scarecrow. We were promised a new skin in 2021, but Riot fell short and pushed the skin back to 2022.

It has now been confirmed by Riot that Fiddlesticks is going to join Ahri, Lux and Kai'Sa in the Star Guardian Universe as their biggest antagonist yet. He is going to be receiving the Star Nemesis Skin in 2022. Pretty epic, right? Just check out the skin splash art below:

League of Legends: Will We Receive Monster Tamer skins in 2022?

In 2021, the community got to vote on the skin lines they wanted Riot to work on. Crime City Nightmare won the vote, followed by Debonair 2.0 – both of which were released in 2021, but a third option was also on the table – Monster Tamer.

The Monster Tamer skins have been revealed to release in LoL Patch 12.15 with three champions getting skins. Veigar, Lulu and Kog'Maw are going to be the ones to get these skins, but we expect more Monster Tamer skins to make it to the rift in the coming years.
