Until 2022, players had to collect both gems, as well as prestige points, to be able to get all the mythic content their hearts desired. This has changed halfway through 2022 though. 

At the start of Season 12, during the 2022 League of Legends live stream, players finally found out how Riot was going to change the prestige system in 2022 and how you can earn mythic content this year instead. 

 

Prestige Skins in 2022: New Mythic Currency Introduced

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. 

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. 

Rotating Prestige and Mythic Skin Shop

Riot recently implemented the Mythic Shop into the client. Eeach 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 Prestige 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:

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. The thematic of 2022 is going to be Ashen Knights, with Pyke being the first Ashen Knight skin.

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 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? Many fans don't think so.
