Ward Skins Coming Soon

We’re excited to announce ward skins, a new customization option that allows you to change the appearance of your Sight and Vision Wards on the Fields of Justice. In keeping with the season, these ward skins are inspired by the haunting guise of the Shadow Isles. Activating a ward skin will transform your wards into ghosts, spooky trees, spiders, creepy stone statues, or pumpkin-headed bats with their own unique visual effects, sounds, and animations.

Here’s how they work. When you purchase a specific ward skin from the Wards tab of the League of Legends Store, it gets added to your inventory for one week. You can activate a specific ward skin to change the appearance of your wards in game. You can keep up to a year’s worth (52 weeks) of ward skins in your inventory at a time, so don’t hesitate to stock up if you have a favorite. Ward skins function the same as a regular Sight or Vision ward.

Here are the first five ward skins available to unlock:

  • Deadfall Ward – 200 IP
  • Haunting Ward – 800 IP
  • Tomb Angel Ward – 25 RP
  • Widow Ward – 75 RP
  • Bat-O-Lantern Ward – 165 RP

These particular ward skins will be releasing with the Shadow Isles patch and will be available until November 13, so buy a few extra weeks if you want to frighten friends and foes alike all year round.

Well since I'm getting downvoted anyway.


**** all you nooby sheep children. Sona, Eve and Rengar deserves all the nerfs they are getting.

Katarina is overpowered too.

Dominion is superior to summoners rift.

Anyone who plays Darius is terrible human being.

**** Teemo and everyone who plays him.

AD carries are underpowered.

Xin Zhao is overpowered.

Kha'Zix is overpowered.

Jarvan, Trundle and Renekton don't need buffs. If you think so you are retarded.

Woong didn't actually cheat. TSM just fails at this game.

Are they worth more gold if I destroy?

Skades 10-18-2012 10:46 AM

Cool, now I'll have something to use the little bit of RP I have left :)

Awesome! Something to spend that straggling leftover RP on ;)

This explains why the icons were placed over the top of them..

Edit: Temporary?! dafuq... you just lost yourself money on that idea.

Edit 2: Since I'm technically first.. I shall provide some helpful links to the further discussion of this:
Ward Skin Experiment Some talk from Hippalus on the general ideas behind this and feedback.
Ward Skin Poll Just a simple poll on the topic for Riot to monitor.
