Riot Games Confirms the new Coven Skins Lineup in League of Legends
High fashion witch queens of League of Legends are back in 2023. The Coven skins in League of Legends are very popular as they present League champions in a very unique aesthetic. Early in September, several leaks suggested that new coven skins were in the making and would be launched very soon. This development was confirmed on 25th September by Riot Games on social media handles.
It simply wrote, "Make the world anew," and posted a teaser for the LoL Coven skins coming out in 2023, hyping up the community big time.
Here's all we know about the LoL Coven skins releasing very soon.
New Coven Skins in League of Legends 2023
The Coven skin line, one of the most popular among the League of Legends community, is all set to receiving a handful of new additions next month. Riot Games confirmed that the new Coven skins shall release on 11th October and will be up for grabs in the in-game store on the same day. Notably, the skins will be a part of the LoL Patch 13.20, the one following the Worlds 2023 update.
The following are the champions joining the Coven in 2023 with the October update in League of Legends:
Coven Nami (Legendary)
Old God Mordekaiser
The Mordekaiser falls under the Old God skin collection, which is a part of the Eclipse universe. Notably, eclipse is a series of alternate universe skins, featuring champions as monastic knights, forest inhabitants, evil witches and gods of an old world.
In the teaser, fans can see Nami talking to the coven in a spooky tone, which is quite the opposite of her aura in League of Legends. Interestingly, it was unclear whether Syndra or Nami would get the Legendary skin in the Coven collection. But, after the teaser was revealed, it became apparent that Nami is the recipient of the Legendary skin.
Early leaks also suggested that Renata Glasc would be a part of the Coven but she has not been mentioned so far by Riot Games. Likewise, renowned data miner and leaker Big Bad Bear noted in a video dated 7th September that players might also be getting some Coven exclusives in Legends of Runeterra and Wild Rift as well.
It is noted that Riot Games drew inspiration for this particular collection from works like The Witch, Game of Thrones, Dark Souls and Bloodborne. The name of the skinline "Coven" reinforces the same thematic as a coven refers to a group or meeting of witches.
The Coven skins were first introduced to League of Legends in 2018 and later in 2021, some more champions were added to the skinline.
The following are the Coven skins that are already available in the game:
Notably, Warwick and Malphite were the first male champions to be added to this skinline and with the 2023 Coven skins in League of Legends, Mordekaiser will be the third one.
