LoL: What is the best selling skin in history?

Skin sales are essential to the survival of League of Legends. Riot Games artists are responsible for already releasing over a thousand cosmetics that are spread across all champions in the game, and each patch includes multiple skins. We know that the company can earn several million euros with each release and that skins are its main source of income.. Players fall for each new version of their favorite champion. But as you know, they don’t always do it to the same extent.

The best selling skins in League of Legends history

Sales of each skin may vary depending on champion, art design quality, or Riot Games’ marketing campaign. The developers don’t want to go into too much detail about it, but they have talked about it a few times. Among them are the times they talked about the best-selling cosmetics in League of Legends history. We cannot provide as many details as we would like, but we can establish the top position.

China Proprietary Data

The data is truly eye-opening, especially when it comes to the best-selling skins of all time. This is one of the most expensive skins in the game topping the leaderboard. Even a price of more than 20 euros did not scare players to get Lx Elementalist. After all, we are talking about the best performance, without a doubt, of one of the most played characters in the world. Additionally, it is still considered by many to be the best ultimate cosmetic to ever touch League of Legends.

Together with Elementalist Lux and also officially confirmed by Riot Games, Project: Vayne, a Legendary, it was one of the first attempts to introduce visual elements to the players’ screens by making us see the game as if we were wearing that helmet, which the master carries in her skin. It’s a formula they’ve repeated ever since, adding some very interesting nods. But they were not able to achieve such success. Overall, the look is a bit more affordable and the ADC is also hugely popular. The case is very similar to Jinx Guardian of the Stars, although in this case the technology has not been as advanced.

League of Legends

Continuing the list, we find two characters who have similar situations. Jhin Cosmic Demiurge was the best-selling skin in 2019, and Lee See Divine Fist held the same honor in 2020, although in this case we only had data from China. What is certain is that they share the same common characteristics. All the cosmetics on this list are for very popular champions who receive what everyone considers their best skin. The case of the jungler is particularly striking, because Divine Fist really motivated the community to abandon its Muay Thai version, released several years before.

Riot Games didn’t reveal how much they made from these cosmetics, but they did post some other interesting facts. For example, the fact that the best performing cosmetic lines in League of Legends history have been K/DA, Project, and Star Guardians. Unsurprisingly, these are elements that always come up in the game and are often the stars of their own events. The truth is they make tons of money as Riot has made over $1 billion for years.

FC Nantes will call for a new player to finish this Div 2 season! The team jungler is unavailable at the end of the regular season and the Canaries have to adapt. Who better than a former member of the house to quickly get on the list?
