- Get the Thousand-Pierced Bear skin free if you own Volibear or buy him in patch 10.11.
Riot is celebrating the Volibear visual update by giving away a free League of Legends skin. The Thousand-Pierced Bear skin is now available to all players who owned Volibear prior to patch 10.11 and all players who purchase him during patch 10.11.
The “Silence for the Damned” short story released by Riot hyped-up fans. However, as his first visual update pictures came out, some players were left disappointed that Riot didn't take him in the eldritch horror direction he'd been portrayed as in a story. To make up for that Riot decided to release the Thousand-Pierced Bear skin for free.
Skins will start going out May 29, 4:00 AM SGT and will be distributed until June 11, 4:00 PM SGT. Fans will receive the skin as soon as they log in and if you’re buying Volibear, you’ll have to relog to claim it. If you’re unable to get him during Patch 10.11, you can buy him from the store for 975 RP.
While Volibear fans will definitely love the free cosmetics, Riot has said not to get used to it, since giving away free skins is not something they plan on doing for future champion updates.
