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 do we know about skins in 2022 and which champions will be receiving skins this year? Is there some information on this out there already? Let’s investigate.
Which Champions are Confirmed for Skins in 2022?
We know for sure that Ekko, Rek’Sai and Gnar will be receiving skins in 2022. These were skins previously announced in 2021. The Rek’Sai and Gnar Elderwood skins will be coming in LoL Patch 12.01, while the Firelight Ekko skin is being pushed back.
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.
World Championship Skins in 2022
EDG have lifted the 2021 League of Legends Summoner’s Cup and with it the five players earned their own skins in League of Legends. It seems that the five players have confirmed their champions to be getting League of Legends skins in 2022.
So expect these five champions to be getting World Championship skins in 2022. The classic black, white and red from EDG is going to look spectacular.
Fiddlesticks Skin Coming 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.
What kind of a skin will Fiddlesticks receive? Which theme would fit him well? Honestly, we’re just excited to be getting a Fiddlesticks skin at all this year.
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.
Whether we’re receiving Monster Tamer skins is not yet known. Riot hasn’t revealed anything regarding that yet. But we would love for these Pokemon and Digimon-themed skins to become a reality in 2022. Please don’t make us wait until 2023 Riot.
