With a new Prestige skin right around the corner, let us look at all the prestige skins released in League of Legends up until now.
The prestige skins are essentially re-imagined versions of an existing skin with some color variations and tweaks. Riot added prestige skins to the League of Legends Hextech Crafting System in patch 9.1 and has been a staple of the system ever since. Unfortunately, the prestige skins are meant to be limited-edition items and are quite hard to get. Thus, the skins could only be bought using a rare currency called Prestige Points.
The earlier iteration of the prestige skins AKA Prestige 1.0, were received with good fan reception. They had promising concepts, but the quality of the skins was not up to par with Riot’s newer skins. So, Riot announced more recent versions of Prestige skins called Prestige 2.0, aiming to improve their quality significantly.

What Are Prestige 2.0 Skins?
Riot announced prestige 2.0 skins along with the Mythic Content Overhaul. According to the fans, the previous iteration of the skins was a glorified Golden Chroma. They were also not worth the high price of the Prestige skins. So Riot revamped the concept to please the fans and made Prestige 2.0.
According to Riot, “Prestige 2.0 skins are high-fashion reimaginings of the base thematic, as if it were the theme for a red carpet or runway event.” In addition, the new Prestige skins have better quality and splash art than the previous version.
How Many Prestige 2.0 Skins Released So Far in 2022?
As of writing the article, eight prestige 2.0 skins have been released on the live servers. The ninth skin, Prestige Cyber Halo Janna is currently in the PBE (Public Beta Environment) server; Riot will release the Janna skin in the live servers on Patch 12.16, which releases on Wednesday, August 24, 2022.
