Kick-Start Your Weekend with Deals on Your Favorite Skins and Champions

It’s Thursday, which means that it’s time to bring you a healthy dose of skin and champion deals to help you kick your weekend plans off on the right foot. If you’re out for a bit of the old rough-and-tumble, we’re pretty sure we know where you can find some: in the mountains, in the madhouse or in the middle of a bar filled with men wearing leather jackets covered with chains. Luckily for you, whichever of these fine venues you choose to patronize we’ve got just the skin to ensure that your champion will feel right at home.

The following raucous-inducing skins will be available at 50% off from Friday, April 6th, through Monday, April 9th:

  • You can be prepared for even the most inhospitable terrain by snagging Rugged Garen for only 487 RP.
  • If you’d prefer a strait jacket to a climbing harness, try grabbing Asylum Shaco for only 487 RP.
  • If you’d like to hoist a glass in the seediest tavern that Valoran has to offer, then picking up Vandal Brand for only 260 RP might be a good first move.

Of course, wherever you’re headed, it’s always good to make sure you’re keeping good company. Whether you prefer to buddy up with the enlightened, the elegant or the outright alluring, we’ve got just the trio of champions on sale to help you blend into any occasion.

The following champions will be on sale for 50% off from Friday, April 6th, through Mond
ay, April 9th:
  • Lee Sin, the Blind Monk, will be only 487 RP. Whether you’re off to a martial arts tournament of a secluded mountain monastery, you’re sure to be a welcome guest if you have this gentleman in tow.
  • LeBlanc, the Deceiver, will be only 487 RP. If you’re on your way to someplace swanky, having this classy illusionist on your arm is sure to keep the conversation colorful.
  • Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox, will be only 487 RP. No matter who you’re trying to impress, you’ll be assured your champion will be nine times foxier than anybody else’s.

Wherever your travels may take you in Valoran, we hope these weekend deals will help get you prepped and ready for any eventuality.

Stay classy, summoners!

Whoa, whoa, whoa!
When did Riot decide to release awesome skin and champ sales again?


The Skin Sale Checklist (4/05/12 Post Update)
Originally Created by Shingo Monster.
Edited and Modified by Coreporeal.

This post has been created to inform potential skin buyers of the possibility of recently released skins that may be featured in an upcoming sale. Newly released skins may go on sale as early as three months after public release; however, this is all subject to change. With the exception of Limited-Edition and Legendary-status skins, every skin released before Oct. 19th has received a sale prior to the latest skin sale announcement, or has been placed in the "unofficial" skin sale Blacklist. The next sale may contain at least 1 skin from the list below.

■ Oct. 19: Hired Gun Graves (520 RP).
■ Nov. 01: Mafia Miss Fortune (975 RP), Jurassic Cho'Gath (975 RP), Boneclaw Shyvana (975 RP), Ironscale Shyvana (975 RP).
■ Nov. 07: Asylum Shaco (975 RP).
■ Nov. 15: Amethyst Ashe (975 RP), Temple Jax (975 RP), Atlantean Fizz (975 RP), Tundra Fizz (975 RP).
■ Nov. 21: Musketeer Twisted Fate (975 RP).
■ Nov. 29: Silverfang Akali (975 RP), Imperial Lux (975 RP), Thunder Lord Volibear (975 RP), Northern Storm Volibear (975 RP).
■ Dec. 05: Frost Queen Janna (975 RP), Hyena Warwick (975 RP).
■ Dec. 14: Dynasty Ahri (975 RP), Midnight Ahri (975 RP).
■ Dec. 29: Arctic Warfare Caitlyn (975 RP), Prototype Viktor (975 RP), Full Machine Viktor (975 RP).
■ Jan. 02: Sandstorm Katarina (975 RP), Superb Villain Veigar (975 RP).
■ Jan. 10: Dragonblade Talon (975 RP), Guqin Sona (975 RP), Jade Dragon Wukong (975 RP), Dragon Fist Lee Sin (975 RP).

All skins not listed here have been placed on sale before, are currently on sale now or have just been announced to be going on sale in a couple of days. The only exceptions to these rules are either Limited-Edition or Legendary-status skins. "Blacklisted" skins are still eligible for skin sales.
With this in mind, it is advisable that you don't buy these skins unless you really want them NOW. (If that's the case, don't complain if you bought it and it happens to go on sale shortly afterwards).
