Want League of Legends skins but don't feel like spending money on them? Don't worry, there are a few ways to get skins without spending a single penny. In this article, we will tell you how to get some free LoL skins!

Riot used to be a bit more generous when it comes to free skins, but their success seems to have gone to their heads. Nevertheless, there are still a few ways to get free skins. Let's go through each of them.

How to Get Waterloo Miss Fortune?

To get this fancy skin for everyone's favorite captain, you'll need to create a new account. In addition to the level rewards, there is also a special reward for the first seven games that count as first-game-of-the-day. As the seventh and final reward, you can choose between 500 Orange Essence or a Waterloo Miss Fortune skin shard.

How to Get Grey Warwick and Medieval Twitch?

To get these two skins, you need to reach Honor level 5. When you reach the fifth Honor level, you will receive a token. You can exchange this token for either Medieval Twitch OR Grey Warwick. Unfortunately, this means that you have to reach level 5 twice to get both skins.

How to Get the 'Season Reward Skins?

At the end of each season, you will automatically receive the new Victorious skin if you have achieved Gold or a higher rank in Ranked mode. Unfortunately, you can no longer get the Season Reward skins from previous years, so stay tuned.


How to Get Triumphant Ryze?

Here's where it gets tricky. You can only get the Triumphant Ryze skin if you win a tournament. It doesn't necessarily have to be one of the professional tournaments. You can check Battlefy,, or Toornament to see if there are any events you can participate in. Still, we like to think that Triumphant Ryze is worth the hassle – he looks baller.

What is Hextech Crafting?

Be it by leveling up, getting a higher Honor Level, or performing well in the game, you will get Champion Shards, blue Essence, Skin Shards, and orange Essence from time to time. This system opens three ways to get skins:

  1. Open Hextech boxes.
  2. Convert skin shards to skins with orange Essence.
  3. Re-roll three skin shards into a random skin.

How to Get Exclusive Loot Skins?

You can spend 10 Gemstones to get one of the Hextech skins. Gemstones are relatively rare, though. When you open a Hextech box, there is a 3.6% chance that you will get one of the Purple Gemstones. In addition, from account level 150 on, you will get a Gemstone every 50 levels. So think carefully whether you want to save your Gemstones or rather buy crates and keys from them.

Can You Still Get Riot Girl Tristana and Unchained Alistar for Free?

Unfortunately, Riot stopped the promotions for these skins. Until recently, you could still get them via a support ticket, but Riot has since removed that as well. As I said, the success seems to have gone to their heads. They don't really need promo anymore...
