The timing of the next patch is unknown at this time. It is a large patch and is being worked on diligently day and night here at Riot.
Frankly, go visit the Shadow Isles, sir.

****. This is so damn annoying.
Budgeted my RP for the 3 Harrowing skins, and could get the Isles ones at my leisure.

Now I figure out a way to get them all.

Im disappointed in the outcome but if a very small portion of the community feels it should be legacy and a slightly smaller one knows they arnt holiday related and are no different then the comando series, what can i do.

But the matter of fact and logic here, in my opinion, is that they are based after a certain location, simply themed from them as the location itself is as spooky as any Halloween themed skin.

It does not directly theme from Halloween, but the Shadow Isle itself - hence the separate set of skins for the holidays, and one celebrating what the change to TT, and Elise's release. As such, I think it would make sense if they were made permanently purchasable to commemorate the release of the reworked map, Elise, and the new lore for a handful of champions.

If we're making them limited edition because of the fact that they are 'spooky-based' and hail from a haunted nation, then we might as well make the release for Elise a legacy purchase as she fits into that theme as well.

Anyway I plan to be purchasing the Hecarim skin myself, but that's my 2 cents on this particular topic.

Death Blossom Elise will be permanent, as Elise was not included on the list of affected skins in the original post.
