Here are some of the best Legacy skins in League of Legends.

Legacy skins are fairly rare skins that players cannot purchase readily from within the game. They can sometimes be found in bundles or on sale during specific events. Some of the different types of Legacy skins in League of Legends include Traditional skins, World Game Event skins, other Holiday and event skins, Riot skins, and esports-themed skins. You can think of these skins as the ‘collector’s edition’ ones because of their rarity and not a lot of players own these skins in-game. So remember not to disenchant or reroll Legacy skins when you unlock them via Hextech Chests or bundles. 

Here are the top five best Legacy skins that you need to look out for in League of Legends. Remember that this list is subjective and you might have different preferences. This list also features a Legacy skin for every role in the game including top, mid, attack-damage carry (ADC), support, and jungle. We have also not included the Worlds skins and other esports-related skins in this list.

Best Legacy skins you need to keep an eye out for

Here are the five best Legacy skins that you should consider buying in-game when they become available. Some of them have unique voice lines and animations. 

Top-lane: Little Devil Teemo

The Little Devil Teemo skin is one of the most interesting skins you will come across in League of Legends. It was released in 2016 as part of the Harrowing celebration and is considered a semi-rare skin. It is currently unavailable in the store but initially sold for 1350 RP. The skin has a very sinister look with Teemo having a new crown and a trident. Simply, it is one of League of Legends’ most-hated champions in a devil's disguise.

Some other honorable mentions are Count Kledula, Kitty Cat Katarina, Poro Rider Sejuani, and Winter Wonder Soraka. One of the best ways to catch these skins on sale is by keeping an eye on festivals and holiday seasons like Christmas, Valentine's Day, and Halloween.
