  1. when i click on garen it said Error 404 – Not Found Sorry, the page that you are looking for does not exist.

  2. Nice reviews.

    I just randomly stumbled onto this site but I definitely think it’s pretty interesting. Also helped narrow down my skin purchases :P

    Consider making a post on reddit to get more viewers.

    • Glad that you found the reviews useful.

      Reddit was considered but according to Reddiquette only 10% of posts can be our own work. We currently don’t have enough time to engage in social networking as it would deserve. The state of our Twitter account is a good example.

      • What a lot of other sites do to not blogspam and still get their content out there is to make a weekly or monthly post that aggregates that week’s/month’s produced content so if/when you do eventually decide to move to reddit, that is a strategy that others have taken with decent success.

        • Sorry for the late answer.

          It’s an interesting idea but we’ll still have to devote time for other posts: 90% of non-promotional content. Regardless, we’ll keep it in mind for when we find more social networking time.

          Thanks for the advice.

  3. please create skin review for jax and alistar . thanks !

    • Will do, added to the list.

      • Thanks, also for Corki, Shen if possible ! Also someone ask RIOT for a new Soraka skin ! :D

        • Sure, both added to the list but please note that it will take us some time to fulfil all requests.

          Finally, a new Soraka skin was actually planned for her re-work, both being developed simultaneously. However, it didn’t work well with her final base model so it was put on hold. We’ll have to wait for a new one, it seems.

  4. Great reviews! Any chance of doing reviews for Garen’s skins? Or do you know the current order in which you’re planning to release some reviews?

    • Glad that you like them; consider Garen added to the list of scheduled reviews.

      The review order usually takes requests and releases into account. Usually, highly requested and newly released champions get reviewed first. There are exceptions but we try to follow this rule.

      We are grateful for the multiple review requests received lately and we try to fulfil requests as soon as possible. However, we have a few reviews queued up so it may take some time to finish them all.

      • Would you entertain the idea of adding more reviewers to your staff?

        • Truth be told, we are currently only a handful of champions away of reviewing the whole roster so we have managed to get up to date with requests; mostly.

          Still, it could be interesting to have other points of view concerning the skins. In that case, leaving a comment is always welcome as we seriously take feedback into consideration and re-analyse skins if needed.

          For the moment we may be too small to consider having a large staff but when the time comes we’ll probably consider more reviewers.

  5. Wow! I just found this site and it helps me so much in deciding which skins are decent. It’s great to get a different view/analysis on the skins.

    Do you think Jax will be up for reviews soon? He has a good mix of skins and is a popular champion.

    • Thanks for the kind words, we’re glad that you find the website useful.

      Jax added to the list, we’ll review him as soon as possible. Considering that the grandmaster is popular and has a good share of skins it’s, indeed, unusual that he has escaped a review for so long.

  6. there is no link to kayle from this index but i remember that you’re already review her skin

  7. I love your guide reviews, they’ve really helped me in making many of my skin purchases. But I’ve recently gotten into playing nunu, and I was surprised to see he didn’t have a review, despite having 6 skins. Either way, keep up the good work, this website is great!

    • Thanks for the kind words, we’re glad that you find the reviews useful.

      We’ve added Nunu to the list and will review him as soon as possible.

  8. can you review gankplank or gragas next

  9. May you do kennen? i love yordles and i wanna see your opinion on this one. I already owned panda teemo before i knew of this site i got super teemo (on sale ^_^) and i wanna get bunny teemo b/c of ur guide. i really would love to see kennen skins. also do you happen to know if muay thai lee sin is legendary like party fiddle sticks. so although they are 975 rp they will not go on sale?

    – Thank You!

    • muay thai is regular

    • Firstly, Crocodile is right; yet, it will take a while for Muay Thai Lee Sin to go on sale as it’s relatively recent.

      Secondly, we’ll review Kennen as soon as possible, he’s been added to the list.

      Finally, Cottontail Teemo is a rather satisfactory skin to play with; as it matches and adds to Teemo’s innate cuteness. Panda Teemo does follow its footsteps but isn’t on the same level. Also, Super Teemo is a good choice despite its compromises to adapt Teemo into a super-hero.

  10. Im surprised there is no Nocturne review? He’s quite a recent character..

    • Indeed, it’s another one that has slipped away. However, we intend to review him when Eternum Nocturne is released; as it’s a skin with good potential.

  11. please put at skin review on nocturne specially the eternum nocturne… im a big fan and i cant find a good review for nocturne skins… i have all the noc skins but still thinking if i wud get the eternum since i think it wud be very expensive. thx

    • We have a Nocturne review scheduled once Eternum Nocturne is released. So far the skin doesn’t look that great, considering it’s legendary, but it’s still in development; hopefully.

      Rest assured that we’ll add the review shortly after the release.

  12. can you review Nautilus/Olaf please i not sure what skin is better to buy yet just like the splash art for now

  13. Can u please make a Nidalee skin review? considering her visual upgrade is already out… Thx :D

  14. are you going to do a Legacy Skin Sale review.
    like what you have been doing with the last sale

  15. You have reviewed LeBlanc, but she is unavailble here. There is no link attached.

  16. can you review gragas, sion or malzahar
    also are you going to update annie skin after the visual undate

    • Gragas bumped in the list, Sion and Malzahar added. We’ll review them as soon as possible.

      We’ll definitely update Annie’s review after the visual upgrade. Nidalee’s missing review shouldn’t be taken as an example as she still lacks new splash arts for her skins; especially French Maid. Still, we’ll review her soon as well.

      • you are the greatest thanks for the olaf review it took awhile but you got it out, kinda sad that olaf review are kinda low, now i not sure whice one to get :( i just bet get the frozen one just cause i like the color blue

        • You are welcome and our apologies it took so long, we’d like to cover the entire cast but we have to choose an order.

          If you like Classic Olaf and blue then Glacial Olaf may be a good choice; though it shows its age. For instance, Pentakill Olaf is more elaborate, as it’s more recent, yet a hard rock drummer isn’t the same as a Viking.

  17. could you also make a review about the Chinese splash arts for these champions ?

  18. Hello, I am thinking about buying Piltover Customs Blitzcrank. Do you have any opinions/reviews about him?

    • Piltover Customs Blitzcrank is a nice legendary skin that unfortunately shows its age. The new model is quite distinct with new smoke and fire particles for the exhaust pipes. Additionally, there are new animations for standing idle, taunt and dance; plus the new model affects the look of Rocket Grab. On top of that, there’s new sound and particles for Overdrive.

      The problem is that in comparison with recent legendary skins it simply doesn’t offer that many changes and they aren’t as elaborate. If you are a dedicated Blitzcrank fan it’s not a bad choice but if you are not going to use it a lot then the price may be a bit too high for what you get. Currently, it’s closer to a regular skin than a legendary but it’s still a good skin.

      • Thanks, even though iBlitzcrank will be out soon, I’ll probably go with Piltover Customs Blitzcrank. I just love the concept :)

        • iBlitzcrank looks quite elaborate and polished so, as future visual upgrades keep even legendaries as they are, don’t expect many improvements for Piltover Customs Blitzcrank. Still, if you really like the skin then you don’t need anything else to convince you. If you are a real Blitzcrank fan then one legendary skin may just not be enough.

  19. When do you make a review of the new Lux and Garen’s skin?>
    Thanks ;)

  20. Hey, can you please do some skin reviews for Renekton. I’m so thankful that I found your site. I favourited it!

  21. Hello! Since I am on a legendary skin buying spree, so I could use your opinions on Nunu Bot.

    I noticed you haven’t reviewed Nunu, so I need to know
    what you think of Nunu Bot.

    Answear when possible. Thanks.

    • Nunu Bot has some interesting features but it seems like the concept has been forced on Nunu and Willump. The new model is good but seems a little smaller that his classic one. The new voice over is certainly distinct but doesn’t feel very artificial; it sounds like an inexpressive radio speaker. Besides, the steam golem look doesn’t even try to adapt Nunu’s abilities. They simply are there and aside from a few sparks on Absolute Zero nothing is different.

      On the whole, it’s a skin that tries to give an artificial feel to Nunu; the emotes are proof of that. However, where it matters the most the skin doesn’t work. It could’ve tried to make him an ice powered golem or modify the abilities. Instead the skin doesn’t develop the theme as well as it should. If you play Nunu a lot or you really like a layer of robot on Nunu and Willump it may be worth considering. Regardless, it doesn’t seem very convincing and it’s hardly a cheap choice.

      • Stop lying :(

        Piltover Customs is amazing, not a great let-down.

        But you should still review him because the new champions with only one skin is getting reviewed. Furthermore, Blitzcrank has two skins you should know of; Rusted Blitzcrank and Goalkeeper Blitzcrank (both limited).

        C’mon, he deservs it.

        • Bro, this reply was ment for the comment below, there seems to have become a glitch.

        • Piltover Customs Blitzcrank isn’t a great let-down. It’s a skin that shows its age, especially in comparison with current legendaries. However, it still is quite appealing and fans of Blitzcrank shouldn’t dismiss it.

          After iBlitzcrank is released, expect a review of the steam golem soon.

  22. This site is absolutely fantastic <3 Can you guys make a blitzcrank review pls? He has so many nice skins… n a new skin is on its way too, I already got the definitely not blitz skin, wad's ur opinion on tat skin? N whicy other blitz skin do I think is the best? Cuz I'm planning to get another skin for blitz n the new iBlitz skin

    Thx in advance :D

    • Glad that you like it and don’t worry, Blitz is coming. Blitzy is just gathering his steam for his iBlitzcrank debut so after the skin is released we’ll do a full review.

      Definitely Not Blitzcrank is a rather nice skin with a good concept and simple but satisfying execution; considering its price. Let’s so how iBlitzcrank shapes up and afterwards you’ll have our final verdict on his best skin.

      Unfortunately, currently he only has Boom Boom and Piltover Customs Blitzcrank available so there isn’t much variety. Furthermore, both skins show their age as they both are a far cry from an elaborate skin like iBlitzcrank. Maybe Boom Boom is the best choice as it’s cheaper but the truth is that these Blitzcrank skins are a bit disappointing.

  23. can u review Renekton next

  24. Hey there, Thanks for all the hard work you put into this site! I always read what you have to say in addition to browsing on lolking for the in-game model viewer. Would it be possible to do some Anivia skins? I think hextech is her best one, but it’d be nice to get a more professional analysis on her :) thank you~

    • Thanks for the kind words, we are glad you find the reviews useful. A model viewer is certainly useful to give a close look at a skin; so as to be sure about what they offer in terms of model changes.

      Hextech Anivia is a very nice re-model for the cryophoenix but her other skins also have their charms. Cryophoenix bumped in the order; the world shall see its end in ice.

  25. Good job spending time to make all this but i dont agree with most of reviews, especially Brolaf and Riot squad Singed. This is bullshit, they both are 5 stars.

    • Thanks but we don’t understand your point. Could you explain why you disagree. We are just giving advice on what we consider to be good purchases so feedback is welcome.

  26. The Nasus review isn’t linked on the index

  27. are you going to redo some of the skin review after their RP price change

    • We’ll definitely do as the value is dependant on the price. We were planning on prioritizing the ones that go to 1350 RP first and then the ones that are discounted. We welcome your ideas.

  28. Please review the new TPA skins ASAP, they look really cool and I want to buy atleast 1 or 2. Keep it up ;)

  29. Are you guys going to crank out the last three champ reviews that are left soon? (Sejuani remake, Karma remake, Trundle)

  30. This site is a permanent bookmark for me. Sorry if it was already asked, but have you considered making a list-form version of the skins, sorted by rating? That way a person could easily identify which skins you have ranked 4-5 stars.

    • Glad that you find it useful.

      A list is a good idea, in fact we’ve thought about a sortable table with all skins so that you can easily access reviews by champion, name or rating. Definitely something to have in mind.

  31. TPA Skin review incoming anytime soon? ;3

  32. Do you ever think of reviewing the classic skins? I think that would be great.

    • It could be interesting but we would need a base to compare them to. In case of purchasable skins we can compare them to the classic ones and see if it adds something valuable for the price. In case of classic skins, without a frame of reference, a review could get rather technical and theoretical about the virtues and letdowns of the models.

      Regardless, it’s an idea we find interesting but we haven’t yet defined how to conduct the analysis. The idea is to be able to say something valuable about the skin. Maybe a review of the actual champion could work. Instead of simply considering the aspect we could evaluate how attractive the concept is and how effective the implementation is in conveying its fantasy.

      • Ok, I see where you’re coming from. And the idea of reviewing the model is a good one. However, wouldn’t you be able to rate the splash art on how well it represents the actual model in game?

        • We certainly can and that’s another thing that could be useful as there are instances where a splash art makes promises that the model doesn’t fulfil. That would be the case with Classic Master Yi after his visual upgrade. He won’t be receiving a new splash art as he was given one early this year. However, it doesn’t faithfully represent his improved look.

          Still, we find that skins’ splash arts aren’t particularly relevant when playing so, aside from being a presentation card, they aren’t as important to rate. Although we do review them so that we can assess how good it represents the actual model; as you said.

          In the end, we haven’t said no to any idea. We are just considering options and trying to maximize the usefulness of reviews. We appreciate your feedback so don’t hesitate to drop us a line if more ideas cross your mind.

          • Ok, well thank you for your time and I will definately let you know if I have any ideas.

  33. You’ve spoken to me before, and I need help. I want to purchase either Demonblade Tryndamere or Blood Lord Vladimir. I love playing both champions and I’m also impressed with both skins. What is your opinion based on what is in game?

    • As far as looks go, both skins have a distinct identity but an implementation that doesn’t go an extra step as a legendary skin should. They aren’t bad but they don’t appear as the best choices either. In fact, Sultan Tryndamere could be considered a more rounded skin than Demonblade.

      Specifically speaking, Vladimir looks alright, albeit monochromatic, and the particles are good. Still, there’s an obvious reuse of classic particles that don’t mesh that well with his new misty blood. Besides, the new voice-over seems to try too hard to convey his power.

      In Tryndamere’s case, he surely looks like a man dominated by fury with a finely designed sword. Yet, the new animations don’t add much and the new particles are rather limited. The voice-over is good but doesn’t really stand out.

      Our recommendation would be to choose based on your preference because both skins are quite similar in terms of quality and value. It could be said that Tryndamere’s model stands out from Vladimir’s homogeneous look. Conversely, Vladimir’s spell particles are more eye-catching than Tryndamere’s subdued effects. Regardless, on the whole they feel similar.

      You should consider that Tryndamere has other skins that could be a valid alternative. Viking seems savage enough and Sultan manages a mix of aristocracy and violence while King goes directly for royal elegance. In Vladimir’s case, only Marquis offers some class as Vandal’s concept seems a bit forced. With this options on the table, Tryndamere has more choices than Vladimir but both offer alternatives that could provide you with what you seek for less of an expense.

  34. Hi Zero first off I just want to say you have an outstanding website I love how well formatted it is and how informative you are in your reviews. Second, I wanted to ask if you could compile the reviews for all the horrowing skins that are about to be released so we can start planning on our purchases. There are plenty of limited skins being released but it’s a bit of a pain to have to go to each champion to read them. Thanks again!

  35. I really like your reviews, the are very well done and very clear, they have helped me a lo to choose the few skins I have bought. I just wanted to ask if you had considered to review the normal skins as well, even though they are not up for sale it would be very helpful to see how a skin compares to the original one, like for example I don’t think any of the two skins for Zyra are better than the original one (just my opinion) so it would be good to see how you think buyable skins compare to the originals. Keep up the great work :)

    • Glad that you find the reviews useful. Reviewing classic skins and splash arts is something we have in mind as it has been requested a few times. We’ll see how we can address it and incorporate it into the site. Thanks for voicing your opinion.

  36. What are your thoughts about Infernal Nasus? Review it as soon as possible please :)

  37. Will you make the Vancouver Olympics in the special events: Events? I suppose World Cup too. I get the feeling Riot will bring them back.

    • Yes they will be back and we’ll provide a single review for each event so that you can promptly check the skins. The reviews are already at each champion’s page but it’s always convenient to have everything in one place.

  38. Is there anyway to view a list of skins that have a certain rating? I’d really like to see what skins have 5 stars, but clicking through each champion seems a bit tedious.

    • Yes, there is. Check the ‘Skin List’ page and order skins by their rating by clicking on the arrows near the ‘Rating’ label at the top of the table. That would produce a list of all skins ordered by rating.

  39. Hmm may I recommend that you have a new page which list all your 5 stars skin?

  40. Quinn should be placed after poppy, btw

  41. love your reviews man. they help me a ton when i go to buy skins

  42. zero what is your fav 520 skin and why

    mine personally is butcher urgot, i use to main the headsman pride and butcher urgot was just the most brutal way of finishing my lane enemy i could think of, the flying chainsaws and the leather face references just made it a must have for me.

    im also a huge fan of noxus hunter anivia. im not quite sure why the gold armour just makes me happy

    • It’s difficult to choose only one as there are so many good options; also due to how many skins and champions there are. We do like those with five stars at 520 RP but we also have a singular liking for Noxus Hunter Anivia.

      Noxus Hunter Anivia may be as simple as adding armour but it works really well. It’s suitable for a bird of war to be protected and it also makes her special. Not every bird deployed in battle wears armour so this one is something else.

      It might be because of how much significance adding protection has. It’s a simple gesture but it speaks volumes.

      Butcher Urgot also has its charm; its devilish, dark charm. It’s a little like stating the obvious; at least, it was when Urgot was unstoppable by all means.

  43. Great job on putting out these awesome reviews Zero. I always go to this site whenever skin sales happen for a second opinion. :)
    Question though, now that Riot is planning on giving Modal/Visual Model Updates on nearly all the old champs, will you re-make the reviews?

    • Thanks for the kind words, we are glad you find the site useful.

      We always modify reviews when a visual upgrade makes significant changes to skins. There are cases, like texture updates, when things remain largely the same, sometimes there are minor changes and sometimes everything is different.

      We try to update reviews not long after a visual update has been released though we sometimes have trouble finding images for the new looks. Currently, all reviews are up to date though in some cases we need new images to faithfully display the actual in-game appearance.

  44. Have you considered doing mini reviews for the various ward skins?

  45. I noticed that the World Cup 2014 skins are not listed on their own tab. Aside from that, I enjoy reading the reviews. Especially when one of my favorite skins gets a good review. ;)

    • We didn’t include them because they are regular, not legacy, skins. If more World Cup skins end up being released we would consider having a page for them; as there are for yearly event skins. It’s not a bad idea, we’ll keep it in mind.

  46. Don’t forget to put Rek’sai and Bard on the review-index page. I love the site and bookmarked it and will look forward to reading your future reviews.

    • You’re right, we are missing a visitor from the Void. We should correct this before they decide to take matters into their own claw and similar indescribable appendages.
