Prestige skins are some of the rarest skins in the game. Obtainable through limited-edition events and Hextech crafting (which can prove pretty expensive), they are certainly unique and are not often seen in action on the Rift.
But what are they, exactly?
They are unique versions of already existing skins with a new golden color and accent splashed onto them. They also pack new particle effects along with other recoloring and changes. Think of them like VERY special chromas.
If you happen to have one on your hands by any stroke of chance, you might wonder just how good and rare your skin is. Well, wonder no longer, as we’ve compiled a list of the Top 10 Best Prestige Skins ranked from worst to best. So, here we go.
10. Prestige K/DA Kai’sa
The K/DA songs are among some of my favorite. The catchy beat and godlike Korean rap solos hit differently. Encapturing the spirit of K/DA as a band is K/DA Kai’sa in all of her golden Prestige splendor. Though perhaps not as visually pleasing as some other contenders for the number 10 spot, the MUSICALITY of the skin alone soars her above the rest. Explosive sound effects, often in quick succession, make for some of the most pleasing to use spells and attacks in the game.
9. Prestige K/DA Evelynn
Following Kai’sa is her band member K/DA Evelynn. No list would be complete without a blood lusty vampire lady, especially not without one that’s also a KPOP group member. Similar to Kai’sa, the skin is very musical, but what makes her stand out just a tad bit more are the beautiful animations that tend to make you forget you are facing a nosferatu. Perhaps that is another of her seductive tricks to make you face-check that brush for the fifth time. Who knows.
8. Prestige Firecracker Vayne
To counter the predecessor, we bring in the Rift’s infamous vampire hunting ADC. The firecracker skin itself makes room for a spot in just about any skin list out there, but with the unique Prestige particles and accent, it is just that much better. This one is one of those that is an all-around upgrade from the original. Instead of dark orange and black, she now sports a beautiful gold and white combo, making the skin stand out among others. In true traditional Chinese fashion, Prestige Firecracker Vayne is a nightmare of the Rift, now triple-shotting you with golden rockets and firecrackers.
7. Prestige Fuzz Fizz
There is just something simultaneously so cute and macabre about a murderous puppy. Pair that with another just as ferocious, larger hound, and you’ve got Fuzz Fizz. With Prestige glory and in golden clad, the dangerous AP Carry makes you extra reluctant to kill him, as he’s just so damn cute. But, you will quickly have a change of heart, as this puppy means business.

6. Prestige Project: Irelia
If you’re an avid gamer, this skin will almost certainly remind you of 2B, the main character of the critically acclaimed Nier: Automata. It is a great RPG, and you should play it when on pause from your daily climb and grind. As in Nier, this skin is all about the future. The animations are excellent, as Irelia’s kit has a superb kit that fits the Project vibe. But, what makes this skin stand out is the sound. Explosive, intimidating, and borderline awesome, the spell sound design of this skin is a true treat.
5. Prestige PsyOps Ezreal
We all like colors, and this skin is the epitome of color. PsyOps Ezreal paired with the Prestige effects is a charm to look at with a neon vibe all around him. This quick hybrid ADC looks genuinely striking in this special iteration with a well-rounded, well-designed, and great-sounding skin.
4. Prestige Conqueror Jax
Jax is a simple champion, perhaps TOO simple. So much so that most of his skins look very bland. His kit lacks any actual animations and effects to be changed or upgraded, but they managed to pull it off. Green suits his entire character well, adding much to his overall looks. But the real standpoint is the all-new effects attached to his spells, which are stunning, to say the least. Though watch carefully as this tanky brute tends to go through them fast.

3. Prestige Dark Star Malphite
If you were scared from a large rock ulting you from the fog and seemingly at random, your fears are about to turn to terror. Turned into an armored black hole (that throws many more, smaller ones around), Dark Star Malphite with the Prestige effects is a cosmic horror to face. His recall animation is one of the best you can find that barely manages to stand out apart from the rest of the kit that sports equally as good effects that make this skin unique.
2. Prestige Valiant Sword Riven
Perhaps the most beautiful skin overall that I’ve so far listed, Riven’s Prestige edition is something else. The recall animation is probably the best one yet, challenged only by the previous contender. With bright and beautiful colors and animations, it gives Riven a much-needed uplift in graphical fidelity and quality that adds a lot to the fun and the character herself.

1. Prestige True Damage Senna
Senna’s Prestige skin is truly what Prestige skins are meant to be in all of her Louis Vuitton glory. Most think of them as glorified chromas, which, in a sense, they are. But skins such as this one make us believe otherwise, and rightfully so. The animations, the looks, everything about it looks stunning and expensive, or, should I say – Prestige. If you’ve got your hands on this one, you truly possess one of THE best skins in League of Legends right now.
That was our list of the Top 10 Best Prestige Skins ranked from worst to best. Which one is your favorite? Be sure to let us know.
