We already have the new Prestige Skin System for over a year now and there won't be any changes into 2024. So let's see what skins we can expect this year!
Prestige skins give players a unique feel and let's them stand out. Especially since the rework to the prestige system in LoL Season 12. Now, with every few patches new prestige skins are added, but how many exist and which ones have already been released in the most recent LoL season?
That's what we're going to look at today, so you are well informed with everything LoL prestige. Does your main already have a prestige skin?
Rotating Prestige and Mythic Skin Shop
Riot implemented the Mythic Shop into the client. Each month new prestige skins can be purchased with Mythic Essence. Any prestige skins that are over a year old can be part of the shop.
So, if you missed Prestige Arcade Caitlyn or didn't have a chance to pick up a prestige K/DA skin, you might have a chance of picking up an older prestige skin that you've always wanted.
Which Skins Are Unvaulted?
The first mythic shop had unvaulted six skins, but now unvault new prestige skins every 2 patches, while mythic skins will rotate every 3 months. These are the skins currently unvaulted in Patch 14.3:

What Prestige Skins Are Coming Out In 2024?
We dont know the full list yet but Riot has promised us that in the first half of 2024 we will be getting a Prestige skin for:
We already got Dragonmancer Rakan and Heavenscale Ezreal. The Kindred Skin has also already been revealed to be Porcelain so we should be done with those 5 champions by patch 14.7 or somewhere close. After that we can expect a second update from Riot for the second half of the year. We will update this article whenever that happens, of course.
New Mythic Currency Introduced in 2022
In 2022 we got a whole new currency with which players can receive mythic content – this includes prestige skins. This means prestige points have been retired instead we got Mythic Essence!
Not only did Riot replace prestige points, but gemstones, with which players had been able to craft skins through the Hextech Crafting tool, were also cut from the LoL client. When the change from gemstones to Mythic Essence took hold, gemstones were converted to ME, while prestige points had to be used up.
This is the perfect new monitor to really see those prestige skins!
Like in previous chests, you're able to pick up Mythic Essence through Masterwork milestones and Masterwork chests, just like you could before with prestige points. Then, you're able to use them in a mythic shop to purchase what mythic content you want.
What Else Can You Get with Mythic Essence?
Gemstones were previously used to pick up hextech skins, but throughout the year's players have stopped appreciating them, deeming them not special enough for the grind.
Therefore, Riot will change up their hextech crafting for skins and will introduce yearly thematic skins which can also be picked up with Mythic Essence.
New Mythic Chromas Available
Riot has also introduced new mythic Chromas with the mythic shop. Ashen Knight and Crystalis Motus have already received all their chromas so we can also expect a new prestige skinline for this year. The chromas for those will be 40 Mythic Essence each. Currently the Dragonfist Lee Sin, Dawnbringer Riven and Crystalis Motus Ashe Chromas are available.
Has the New Mythic Shop and Overhaul Worked?
This mythic content strategy was supposed to make it much easier for fans to follow and receive mythic skins of their liking. But now it seems that many have felt it was more of a grind to receive the skins they wanted than previously.
Also, Riot promised to change up the thematic for prestige skins, making them more high-fashion like the Louis Vuitton Senna and Qiyana skins were, but have they succeeded in doing so? Let us know what you think in the comments!
