Sorry Riot, but there's no chance I'll be spending anything on something that's not permanent - it sucks too, I really liked this idea at first...

Only one week? Really? 800 IP for a one-week rental?

Ward skins seemed really cool. Trust Riot to screw it up by making them only last a single week apiece.

What's next, skin rentals? BUY THIS NEW SKIN FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER ONLY!

The goal here is not to have ghosts and bats popping up all over Summoner's Rift all year round. It is a Harrowing/Shadow Isles promotion to add a new element to the event and help us understand how players like and use ward skins.


then why not make the ghosts and bats temporary and make the tomb angels permanent?

Players like customization, but players don't like to have to pay for limited customization.

remove the rp cost and make all of them really cheap ip costs if they're only going to be temporary. I'm not paying real money for a temporary virtual item.

I would rather pay a much higher price for permanent ward skins than cheap and temporary ones. How disappointing. ;c I was so excited about them, too.

QUESTION:

Lets Say I buy a skin ward on a Monday... but I first activate it on Saturday.... will it expire on the next Monday or until the next Saturday?

because you know, what If I want to buy all 5 wards skins but use one each week for the following 5 weeks?

wouldn't 4 of my wards expire after the first week?

what if I choose not to activate them until later?


It always lasts 7 days from when you buy it, and our expectation is that most people will buy a week before Halloween and use the ward skins through the holiday.
