League of Legends (PC | Android | iOS) is the flagship of Riot Games where two teams of five people face off in Summoner’s Rift with the objective of destroying the enemy base. For that, the game requires teamwork and real-time decision-making.
One of the biggest attractions, and which you’ve probably spent more than you should have, are the skins, cosmetics that change the character’s appearance. Today we’re going to show you the available ways, paid or not, to purchase League of Legends cosmetics.
How to get skins through the client
Riot Games launches new cosmetics with each new update, providing several options to choose from. The most common way is through the company’s own system, either by acquiring the famous RPs (Riot Points) that are purchased with real money and exchanged for the cosmetic you choose, or by earning chests based on your performance.

Step 5: the chests release a skin fragment that remains in your inventory and to be transformed into a usable cosmetic you need to spend “Orange Essence” which is obtained by selling skin fragments you don’t want or earning after leveling up;
