Kayn, The Shadow Reaper
Kayn, The Shadow Reaper

The struggle between man and weapon is still about integration but also about domination. Will the odds of the battle decide who triumphs or can the will of one surpass the other?

SKT T1 Season 6 Skins
SKT T1 Season 6 Skins

SKT T1 skins for Season 6 leave behind the contemporary, modern interpretations used before for a different, fantasy style that fits the realms of League of Legends better.

Rakan, the Charmer
Rakan, the Charmer

Rakan, the Charmer isn’t known as such for no reason. Magic, love and ecstasy combine to scare, hurt and frighten as easily as he can form an irresistible smile.
