The price of the skins will not be impacted by the result of this vote. The only price impact is that historically Legacy skins have never been put on sale.

That is horrible logic.

As skins associated with one of the areas of Rune Terra as opposed to a holiday I think they should be permanent. The harrowing skins are costumes, like they have been in the past, while the Shadow Isle skins are meant to be from a creepy section of Rune Terra. The Crimson Elite skins, based out of Noxus, are permanent skins and thus we already have a precedent that should be followed.

Hippalus, any word on 2011 harrowing skins coming back on sale this year or they locked away in the vault. Would love to know.

Just as before, I'm voting legacy. I can only hope that the rest of the community does what is right here. It's in your hands now.

The legend of sleepy hollow, which is directly about the headless horseman is a Halloween staple. Its shown on TV at Halloween, its broadcast on satellite radio on Halloween, it was released on ebook on Halloween yrs ago....I think you get my point.

Ask anyone you know "What does the Headless Horseman" make you think of...if 90% dont say Halloween I'll be surprised.

Sleepy Hollow does not intrinsically have anything to do with Halloween. You not knowing this doesn't suddenly make it untrue.

The 2011 Harrowing skins were sold as Limited Edition and thus are ineligible to come back into the store. We have been working on a possible trading system for Limited Edition skins but there are many hurdles and it is unlikely to be available any time soon.

Sounds great! So can you confirm a price? Are they legacy pricing or traditional limited pricing?

Oooh... now that we cut the harrowing stuff out of the question... I don't know if I can keep saying that these shouldn't be limited. Now that they are by themselves, it's back to 'they really fit', but it's also a case of 'if it wasn't meant to be limited then it shouldn't be changed to be limited'.

I can't vote but I'm looking forward to the results either way.

To be honest, the Shadow Isles skins could very well be considered Harrowing, given the theme. I mean come on: Haunted Maokai? Headless (Horseman) Hecarim? Arguably Halloween themed and should be considered to be included in the Legacy skins vault. If they were legacy, more people will consider buying them due to their limited availability and they will be able to get the Harrowing Summoner icons (Which are also for the event) along with these.
