Legacy Skins in League of Legends: Exploring the Legacy Vault

When it comes to skins in League of Legends there are hundreds upon hundreds of them. From legendary skins to limited edition collectors skins, over the years the number of available skins has increased tremendously. With new skins being constantly released, sometimes old skins need to be removed from the store in order to make way for new ones.

When a skin is removed from the store the chances of them ever returning are very slim. These removed skins often become what is known as legacy skins. Since they can no longer be obtained in game, they are viewed as collector's items. Not only are they good to show off to your friends, but they also show people how long you’ve been playing the game.

We’ve painstakingly arranged all of the legacy skins in an easy to read format just for you. Simply find the champion you’re interested in and take a look at their legacy skins.

Some legacy skins return on special occasions and some are never accessible again. The main example of a skin that was available for a very short time and is now extremely rare is Rusty Blitzcrank. Some skins most notably Snow Day skinline return yearly during Christmas. Esport skins return every year during Worlds. For your convenience we have noted down all special events when you can snap the Legacy skins for your collection. Keep in mind that the vast majority of Legacy Skins will most likely never be available in store again. So the only way to get these is by Hextech Crafting (some can't be obtained even this way), Shop events or by getting an old account. You can filter all our accounts by skins to find exactly what you need in our buy skins section.

When does Legacy Vault open?

During the following events you can buy legacy skins. All of the events below happen on a yearly basis so if you missed this years you can always wait for the next season.

Seasonal skins

Mid Season
