Riot has officially revealed the upcoming legendary skin, Mythmaker Irelia, which will release on patch 13.1.
Lunar New Year is one of the first major cultural events of the year. It is the beginning of the lunisolar calendar, whose months are based on moon cycles. As it is a traditional festival in China, it is also most commonly known as “Chinese New Year.” Moreover, every mainstream and live-service game celebrates this event, and League of Legends is no expectation.
Since 2011, League of Legends has celebrated Lunar New Year in one way or another. In 2011, Riot released only one skin to celebrate the occasion, Lion Dance Kog’Maw. But in the following years, Riot started to release complete skin lines. Some of the beloved Lunar skin lines are Firecracker, Warring Kingdoms, Mecha Kingdoms, Shan Hai, Lunar Wraith, Lunar Beasts, etc.
As Lunar New Year 2023 is taking place earlier than usual, we will also receive the Lunar skins early.
In Lunar Revel 2022, we received two skin lines, Porcelain and Firecracker. Similarly, in 2023, we will receive two separate skin lines for Lunar New Year, Mythmaker and Lunar. In total, both skin lines will feature 10 unique skins. Furthermore, only Mythmaker will receive a Legendary skin, Mythmaker Irelia.
Irelia was released in League of Legends in 2010. And at the time, she was a very simple champion. She played very similarly to a bruiser instead of a diver. Moreover, she filled the same role as Master Yi and Jax. So in 2018, Irelia received her much-needed rework.
Including her prestige skin, she has 12 unique skins. However, even though she is a highly-picked champion, she has no Legendary skin. Mythmaker Irelia will be her first Legendary skin.
