League of Legends unveils new skins yearly, with around 130 to 140 new skins released in a calendar year.

Depending on the theme and skin lines, you can buy these skins, including the candy-themed and futuristic skins. In short, every player can find a niche skin according to their taste, aiding League of Legends to deliver an inviting gaming experience.

Since Riot introduces new skins yearly, you can expect around 130 to 140 skins in 2023. These skins fall under eight categories or skin tiers, allowing you to enhance your champions' looks with new voice lines and animations.

Furthermore, each tier has a different appeal and contrasting prices, so you will have to shell out extra RP to purchase top-tier skins.

Here are some stats that will help you determine the pricing and popularity of each tier:
  • There are three skins available in the Timeworn’s 390 RP category (Golden Alistar, White Mage Veigar, and Assassin Master Yi).
  • There are 161 skins in Timeworn’s 520 RP skin tier.
  • There are 129 skins in the Budget skin tier that costs 750 RP.
  • The Standard skin tier has around 333 skins that cost 975 RP each.
  • The Epic skin tier holds the highest inventory of skins (377) that cost 1350 RP each.
  • There are 61 skins in the legendary skin tier, which cost 1820 RP each.
  • The Ultimate skin tier has four skins that cost 3250 RP each.

You can also get special skins in League of Legends, which may be event-specific or time-specific. As of 2022, League of Legends has around 64 skins in this category.


LOL Chroma Skin Tier

The Chroma skin tier has around 235 individual skins, allowing players to customize their Champions with unique looks and textures. These skins are unique and often not counted in the total tally of LOL skins.

These skins are often a copy of different existing skins, and players can only use them once they have the original one. However, Chroma skins offer a personalized texture to your Champion and help you stand out in the crowd.

In short, if you combine the tally of 2750 Chroma skins with 1,481 LOL skins, the total count will 4000.


LOL Timeworn Skin Tier

The Timeworn skin tier has three subcategories with different pricing. These skins are often character-specific and fall below the budget skin tier.

For instance, the Phantom Karthus skin is the only one you can purchase after spending 460 RP. There are no other skins at this price which makes this tier unique.

Likewise, you can purchase three unique skins for Golden Alister, White Mage Veigar, and Assassin Master Yi for 390 RP each. The highest RP required to buy skins in the timeworn tier is 520, offering new visual updates and model changes for your Champions.
