The Cream of the Crop: Christmas and Winter Skins in League of Legends
5. Winter Wonder Neeko
This skin just has this magical vibe. When I see the splash art, it's like a Frozen scene with all those crystals and snow in her hand, sparkling away. The way they did the highlights and shadows is also spot-on. Plus, it's Neeko's first-ever skin, so maybe that's why it's stuck in my head—it's like the OG Neeko look.
Time really flies, huh? Winter Wonder Neeko and the champ herself were both released five years ago in 2018—feeling a bit ancient now, right? Neeko being a 5-year-old champion is a reality check! The skin, at 1350 RP, is truly deserving of its epic status. The high-quality design shines through both in the splash art and in-game, making it worth every RP. Time may have passed, but this skin's aesthetic appeal remains timeless.
4. Re-Gifted Amumu
Christmas isn't all about happy smiles, right? That's why we've also included the saddest mummy of them all—none other than Amumu, donning one of his most melancholic skins, Re-gifted Amumu. Despite its sad undertones, this skin looks fantastic in-game and is arguably one of the best Amumu skins available.
Even though this skin is a bit of a throwback, dating back to 2010, it's a classic gem that still holds up. At a budget-friendly 520 RP, it's a steal. So, let's make Amumu's Christmas a memorable one and sport this skin as we dive into games with friends, escaping the inevitable family drama that tends to tag along during the Holidays. Time to spread some cheer on the Rift!
3. Santa Braum
I mean, just take a moment to appreciate those abs on Santa Braum. Do we even need to say anything more? Sure, League of Legends has its fair share of Santa skins—Gragas, Draven, Veigar, and Zilean all joining the festive lineup. But let's be honest, none of them come close to the glory of Santa Braum!
For a reasonable 1350 RP, Santa Braum is really worth it, considering it graced the scene in 2016 and remains a top-tier, high-quality skin. The animations are on point, and let's not forget him cruising on a sleigh with adorable Poro-reindeer steering during homeguard. It's cuteness overload! Honestly, there's absolutely no reason to not use this skin, even in the middle of July.
2. Prestige Winterblessed Camille
Prestige Winterblessed Camille is a recent addition to the winter skin lineup, making its debut in the final patch of Season 13. Maybe I'm just biased, but there's something about this skin that has me completely hooked. The splash art paints her as a truly epic character, and the meticulous attention to detail, especially for a prestige skin, leaves me utterly breathless.
You can snag this fabulous skin through the Winterblessed 2023 battle pass by collecting 2,000 tokens. If you miss out, don't fret too much—she's bound to make her way to the mythic shop later on. This iconic queen won't be gone for too long. In my book, it's hands down one of the finest prestige skins made by Riot. To all you Camille mains out there, don't miss out your chance on getting this skin!
1. Winterblessed Diana
Diana may be a challenge to deal with in-game, but she's got the ultimate winter skin that takes the cake. Why? Because she has the power to resurrect the beloved winter map that every League of Legends player yearns for. How, you ask? Simple—achieve a Pentakill! It's a bit bittersweet that the map only transforms with a Penta, but when Diana pulls it off, the landscape turns into a snowy winter wonderland for a brief period, bringing back nostalgic memories of the good old days in League. Still holding out hope for Riot to bring back the old winter map, though!
For 1820 RP, this legendary skin is an absolute standout. The transformative power of a Pentakill, turning the entire map into a winter wonderland, justifies every bit of the price tag. But wait, there's more! When Diana ults multiple opponents at once, she changes her appearance from a cool blue to a more refined and elegant purple color, elevating the awesomeness to a whole new level!
Here are my top 5 Christmas and winter skins, but I'd love to hear if you have different favorites! Share your thoughts in the comments below, and wishing you all a joyful holiday season!
