Summer is the favorite season for many folks, with pool parties, water fights and lots of sunshine you can see why it’s so popular! To get you in that summer mood we’ll be looking at the best Pool Party skins in League of Legends.
There are currently 13 Pool Party Skins in League of Legends ranging over many different champions. With so many skins it's easy to find one for your position, as well as your tastes!
To celebrate summer, we’ll be looking at some of the best Pool Party skins in League of Legends. Grab your water bombs and super soaker as things are about to get wet!
Joining Graves amongst the ranks of pool party studs, we have Gangplank!
All Pool Party skins have wet and wonderful recalls, and Gangplank is no exception. His backing animation comes complete with a crab waiter and flaming steaks; Plus, his spells have received some awesome animation upgrades too!
His barrels have transformed into large watermelons that pop into a spectacularly colorful display, his ultimate sends down a bombardment of water balloons, and he’s ditched his sword in favor of a flaming spatula, which we suspect makes cooking those steaks a whole lot easier!
His tattered Captains get up is gone now too, the fresh, hip Gangplank can be seen sporting a Hawaiian shirt, sunglasses, and flip flops! (He even has a necklace of orange segments around his neck too.)
Perhaps inspired by Pool Party Rek’Sai, this Zoe skin lets her hop from place to place with the handy help of plastic, water-filled tunnels. Her animations haven’t changed too much, aside from her orb of sleepiness becoming a beach ball, and of course, everything getting lot wetter. With that said, she has received a few visual tweaks.
Such as her hair! Her wispy locks have always resembled water to us, and now they are – Like, it’s pretty much actual water. Streaming from her head. In fact, she now looks like Joy from “Inside Out,” and we see where they’re coming from. Zoe is nothing if not joyful!
The white shawl thrown over a purple bikini really suits Caitlyn, and visually it’s up there as one of my favorite skins. Although, her animations are pretty sweet too.
As with Zoe, everything’s blue and wet; There’s also something oddly satisfying about sniping people with short bursts of water and sending out your Piltover Peacemaker – which is essentially a tiny tidal wave – to wipe your enemies out. Her backing animation also stands out from the rest too.
Caitlyn’s recall has her lounging luxuriously while being fanned by a crab, it’s too bad she doesn’t treat her servant with the respect he deserves though; Instead of thanking the friendly crustacean, she Instead chooses to boot him off the rift unceremoniously. She looks good though, so maybe we can overlook her abusiveness?
This skin was originally a community request via the NA League of Legends forums and was inspired by MaTTcomGO’s artwork after hearing the idea from another player. After hearing the idea, he went away and drew some concept art and sketches for the skin itself. After a few months of drawing the skin was officially released by Riot in game and was available to purchase in store.
The skin features Ziggs in his full swimming gear including a snorkel and his trusty ducky life ring. His conventional bombs have been swapped for water bombs but don't be deceived they are just as deadly!
Pool Party Ziggs also features new animations and sounds to keep with the theme. His ultimate ability has been modified to a massive water bomb that makes a big splash when it's dropped, showering his enemies.
If you’re looking for one of the best Pool Party skins in League of Legends, then this is the one for you. The skin is currently available in store for 1350 RP so if you’re thinking of getting it make sure you do before it's removed.
This pool party skin features Renekton as a lifeguard in a tank top with sunglasses and lifeguard float. Almost striking an identical resemblance to the Hoffman himself from Baywatch, this skin features lots of model and animation changes.
The recall animation for Pool Party Renekton has been changed to Renekton sitting in his lifeguard chair, towering over everyone else. His primary weapon of choice is now his life float which he waves around to cause some serious damage.
His ultimate animation has also been changed to an area of bubbles which are actually bubbles of death, draining life from his opponent and healing himself.
This skin is currently available in store for 975 RP and is a great skin to play with. The animation changes really adds a lot to the skin and is definitely worth the price.
This skin features Leona relaxing in her swimsuit with her umbrella and surfboard at the ready. The skin features many model changes such as her sword is now an umbrella, and her shield has been changed to the surfboard.
Many of the animations are still the same from the original skin, but the whole theme has been changed with the new model updates.
The recall animation has been changed to Leona sitting on her deck chair with her umbrella up while she waits for the teleport. Due to Leona being a fan favourite champ this skin is also considered one of the best Leona skins due to the theme.
Pool Party Leona is currently available in store for 975 RP. It was also possible to get a chroma skin pack that changed the colour of the skin to blue, pink and purple. But currently, that is no longer available.
Things just got serious with this Pool Party skin; Graves has swapped his traditional blaster for a new super soaker.
The skin features Graves dressed in swim shorts and flip flops while he runs around with his new favorite toy, his super soaker 9000.
Many of the animations and particles have been changed on this skin such as the bullets from his gun now fires lines of water to match his new super soaker. His smokescreen has now been changed to a water sprinkler to match the theme of the pool party.
The recall animation has also been changed to Graves playing on a diving board before jumping in just before he teleports back.
This League of Legends skin is definitely a fan favorite and is part of the more expensive pool party collection costing 1350 RP in store. If you play Graves a lot, then this is certainly a skin you’ll want to add to your collection.
This Lee Sin skin features a range of model and animation changes. The most noticeable changes are that Lee Sin is constantly carrying a coconut around with him while wearing a flower necklace. He is also wearing a funky Hawaiian shirt, blue shorts, flip flops and shades.
He now throws his coconut around everywhere instead of his original projectile then dashing around to get it back.
His recall animation has been changed to him leaning on a palm tree and sipping from his coconut while he waits to teleport back. When he runs out of juice, he kicks the palm tree, and another falls down for him.
This Lee Sin skin is currently in the store for 975 RP. Make sure you check out all the other League of Legends Pool Party skins before purchasing as there are lots to choose from!
This Pool Party skin features Zac as a transparent blue blob of water. He also has a new snorkel which he’ll need if he’s going to spend all his time swimming around. His recall animation has been changed to him sitting in a paddling pool while waiting to teleport back to base.
The skin also includes new sound effects for his skills and abilities as well as new coloured particles. This Pool Party theme suits Zac well and is one of the better skins from the collection.
Pool Party Zac is currently available in store for 1350 RP, which is more expensive than some of the other Pool Party skins but worth it.
This skin features Mundo in a Blue Polo shirt, flower necklace and straw hat ready to spend his day on the beach.
The skin also includes a new Ukulele and a new recall animation that involves Mundo smashing it on his head (RIP Ukulele). If you want a refreshing Mundo skin, then this pool party skin is what you’re looking for.
Available in store for 975 RP this skin was released in 2015 but could be removed at any time.
Originally released as part of the League of Legends Pool Party 2016 event, this pool party skin has been long awaited by many.
The skin features Fiora in bathing gear while her sword has been switched for a Pool Noodle!
In addition to this, Fiora is now donning some massive sunglasses to block out the haters and has a towel wrapped around her neck like a cape.
The skin has many new features such as new animations, sounds and particles. Every time Fiora hits an enemy, there is a new water splash particle and sound effect. When using her ultimate Grand Challenge, 4 water balloons spawn around the enemy which Fiora must destroy to heal all allies within the area.
Her recall animation has been changed to include an epic duel with Kelly the crab. The two duel with each other until Fiora knocks the sword out of the crab’s hand before teleporting back to base.
Available in the store now for 1350 RP, if you want to duel everyone with your Pool Noodle then be sure to grab it before it’s too late.
So there you have it, 8 of the best Pool Party skins available in League of Legends. All these skins are currently available in store so make sure you snap them up before they get removed. Traditionally Riot has released a set of new Party Pool skins every year.
There are already 13 skins in the collection with around 5 new ones being released every year. Make sure you keep an eye out for any upcoming future Pool Party skins.
With so many League of Legends pool party skins available, this raises the question who’s going to be next? Although we’ll have to wait until the summer of 2017 before the new ones are released, we couldn’t help but look at the possible upcoming pool party skins.
Based on a Reddit post from a few years ago, we think this pool party Darius skin looks pretty epic!
Featuring Darius wearing a life jacket and super tight swimming trunks we think this sums up Darius pretty well. In addition to this, Darius has swapped his trusty axe for an inflatable shark instead!
Although this is just a concept design and nothing official has been announced, this could be a great skin with a few new animations and sounds. For the new recall animation Darius could ride his inflatable shark into the waves or jump off a diving board into the water, the possibilities are practically endless.
Based on the release of previous pool party skins, we think it would cost around 1350 RP and would definitely be a must have skin to add to your skin collections.
Created by Carlozpawnproz from the custom skin website LeagueCraft.com, this skin takes the Pool Noodle to a whole new level.
The skin was actually released way before pool party Fiora ever hit the store and was definitely way beyond its time. Featuring Tryndamere with a rubber dingy, snorkel and scuba flippers, this skin looks like a mix between pool party Fiora and pool party Ziggs!
Although this is a bit of a wacky concept, we still think it would make a great skin. With 2 Pool Noodle wielding warriors on the rift this would make some good entertainment in the top lane.
The custom skin also features a really cool death animation which we like the idea of. When Tryndamere dies, he falls on his back as his Pool Noodle flies up in the air. Upon landing, it sticks inside him like a knife in butter. Gruesome yet comical when the knife is a Pool Noodle.
If Riot were to release a Pool Party Tryndamere skin we don't think it would look exactly like this one, nevertheless this skin is pretty awesome!
Everyone loves Katarina, and if you don't then you’ll love this pool party Katarina!
Inspired by the pool party Ziggs splash art were Katarina makes an appearance, someone over at LeagueCraft.com has taken this concept art and turned it into a working skin.
The skin features Katarina in her bathing gear but like all the other pool party skins is missing changes to her weapons. We think a good idea would be to change them to foam daggers or something more comical.
Although this skin isn’t 100% finished and needs some improvements, we think the creator has got the base model complete. Now Riot just need to pick up the idea and sprinkle on some of their creativity to make an awesome pool party skin!
