League of Legends news » Prestige Points and new prestige edition skins
TL;DR: Starting in 9.1, we’re introducing a different type of prestige skin that stays in the store until the end of the year and is unlockable with new Prestige Points.
The skins team has a bunch of ideas for future prestige versions of skins, so we are experimenting with another way for us to release these skins throughout the year without limiting them to events. So we’re keeping event-specific prestige skins, but adding yearly prestige edition skins, which are craftable for 100 Prestige Points each. These 2019 yearly prestige skins will release throughout the year until they all expire on February 01, 2020, at 07:59 GMT.
We’re planning to continue using a gold-and-white color palette to keep Prestige Edition skins instantly recognizable. But we’ll still experiment with other accent colors to mix things up as needed.
Prestige Points come from bundles with Masterwork Chests (there will be three of these bundles available at launch), and we’re looking to add more ways for you to get Prestige Points in the future. Unlike Gemstones, there’s no random factor to Prestige Points, so you’ll always know how close you are to getting the prestige skin you want. The 2019 Prestige Points will expire from Masterwork Chest bundles on January 1, 2020, at 07:59 GMT.
