League of Legends community while showing a bit of transparency with upcoming skins.

The League of Legends devs launched their first ultra-premium skin with Prestige K/DA Kai’Sa in October 2018. While reception was met with intrigue and a general positive outlook, there’s been loads of issues raised since.

Players have since had various concerns regarding the Prestige Points, Prestige Edition skins as opposed to Prestige Event skins, the lack of variation some Prestige skins have, and a lot more.

Riot GamesAatrox’s Prestige skin got a lot of negative feedback when first announced.

New Prestige Edition skins

To directly answer some of these growing problems, Riot Games gave a small update to their community on where they’re going with Prestige skins in 2020, while giving a general roadmap on which new champs are getting skins.

LoL fans are already looking forward to the Prestige Edition of Valiant Sword Riven, but new champ Qiyana and Lee Sin will also get a Prestige skin tied to events with “as-of-yet-unrevealed (themes).”

Miss Fortune and Thresh will also be getting a 2019 skin but these will not be featured in an event, instead these will be unlocked with the Prestige Points at some point in the year.

Riot wants players to “use (their) event tokens and Prestige Points with confidence” knowing that they’re unlocking a skin “(they’ll) enjoy the most.” So to meet that end, they’ll also be announcing the 2020 lineup of Prestige skins next year.

Hopefully Riot’s changes will make Prestige skins more accessible for those who work to acquire them.

Prestige Point bundles

People worrying about having less than 100 Prestige Points (PP) at the year’s end need not fret anymore, since the company will be giving them options to spend their remaining balances.

Various bundles that pay out different tiered skin shards will be available for 50 PP, while “exclusive” emotes, ward skins, icons and more will be 25 PP, 15 PP, 10 PP, etc.

These new offers will be a godsend for people who would have been powerless to use their 99 PP before the January 31, 2020 PP reset.

Prestige Event skins redeemable with PP

Event skins are some of the rarest variations of Prestige Edition designs, but timetables haven’t been lining up with a ton of League of Legends players in order to unlock them.

To combat that in the future, Riot will make 2020 Event Prestige skins temporarily obtainable with PP at the end of the year.

The borders and icons for those skins will only be unlockable if the skin was earned during its respective event, but at least players will have a chance to outright acquire the item with PP.

League of Legends players might appreciate the new approach with Prestige skins as Riot Games is retooling their approach based on the mounting feedback from their community.

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
