After nearly a dozen Prestige skins in 2019, the illustrious gold-and-white League cosmetics will be back in force in 2020, with Riot revealing their plans for them on January 15.

Prestige skins have captured League players’ attention since they debuted back in 2018. The rare gold-and-white versions of popular skins are some of the most nicely designed cosmetics in the game and are a great addition to any inventory.

There’s always excitement surrounding what champion will be getting a skin next, and Riot has let players in with which champions are next on the production line over the next six months of Season 10.

Collecting Prestige skins has become somewhat of a mission for some League players.

Highlighting Riot’s plans with skins and events in Season 10, League of Legends product danager Ken ‘KenAdamsNSA’ Adams let players in on a few secrets.

According to Adams, six champions will be receiving Prestige skins in the first half of 2020. Mecha Kingdoms Garen was the first one, with his skin rolling out in the Mecha Kingdoms event on January 15.

True Damage Senna is also on the way after Riot announced that she would be the second member of the five-piece rap group to get a Prestige skin after Qiyana.

Qiyana was the first True Damage member to get a Prestige skin.

However, four new names were added to that line-up. Malphite and Lucian will be receiving event-specific Prestige skins in the first half of 2020, highlighting the fact that there’ll be two more big events before July.

Zyra and Zoe will also be receiving Prestige versions of their new skin releases coming in 2020. What lines they’ll be adapting into the illustrious special edition skins is unknown, but they’re bound to excite LoL players no matter what.

2020’s Prestige lineup will also differ from 2019’s in a few ways. Firstly, they’ll have a new border and unique summoner icon for each skin. Instead of having to fork out separately for the combo, you’ll get the border and icon when you buy the skin.

Zyra will be one of six champions getting a Prestige skin in the first half of 2020.

This doesn’t apply to Prestige skins obtained through loot drops or skin shard rerolls though. If you obtain a Prestige skin through that manner after 2020, or when the event is finished, you’ll only get the skin without the border or icon.

If you still have Prestige Points from 2019, they’ll expire in a few short weeks. Be sure to spend them all before February 3 to grab some of last year’s skins.

Riot dev responds to broken League damage bug with Ravenous Hydra

A Riot Games developer has responded to a bizarre bug in League of Legends, which is preventing the Ravenous Hydra from working with certain champions’ abilities in-game.

Riot Games introduced plenty of changes in the 2021 preseason patch such as completely revamping the League Item Shop and items to improve the game’s experience before Season 11 kicks off.

Ravenous Hydra is one of the items that has remained in League, but it received some updated stats amid the changes. The item still provides players with lifesteal, in the form of Omnivamp, but Riot has now removed the Crescent Active and added 20 Ability Haste in its place.

However, one thing that has not changed much is the item’s passive ability Cleave, which allows basic attacks and abilities to trigger extra damage, which varies based on the distance between targets.

Urgot's splash artLeague players called for a Ravenous Hydra fix after a glitch was found with champions like Urgot.

There are some champions with abilities that had unique interactions with this item, such as Aphelios’ Severum Q, but players have now noticed a bug, which stops it from working correctly with certain champions.

The issue was raised with League dev Riot Phlox, with one Redditor explaining that champions with multi-hit abilities, like Urgots W, Renekton W, and Warwick’s Ult seem to be where the problem lies.

Riot Phlox responded to the bug, revealing that they are now aware of the unusual damage glitch with Ravenous Hydra and that it would be passed on to the League Dev team.

“I’ll pass this along so we can make sure there are eyes on it, thanks!” the League dev responded, confirming they would soon be working on it.

However, he also revealed that he was unsure just when a fix might be issued for this broken damage bug, adding that they “can’t give a timeframe.”

While it is unclear when the patch will arrive in League of Legends, this will still come as good news to Urgot mains, and those who play similar champs, after they were quite vocal on this issue, as it will soon allow them to have more build options in-game.
