10 coolest looking League of Legends Champions in their Classic skins
Article written by Zeeshan | Posted on: March 30, 2013
League of Legends also known as LOL, is an amazing game with 100+ champion pool and all champions have premium skins, which makes it really hard to pick only 10 and only the Classic skins. According to my observation and overall preferences I selected 10 League of Legends Champions which have the best Classic Skins. Below is the list of those champions:
The modifications that RIOT Games made to Katarina in her remake has made her classic skin look better than it ever did. Especially, the new animation of ‘shunpo’ combined with ‘sinister steel’(new ability that was given to Katarina on her champion remake) leaves a very good overall impression of her classic skin. On the top of it, those bad-ass noxus flavored dialogues make it look even closer to the actual character of Katarina. But don’t get fooled of her beauty because she is deadly.
Katarina’s classic skin:
The golden armored classic skin with the characteristic tag-line ‘The Radiant Dawn’ combines perfectly with the lore of this champion. Moreover, she is also known as the ‘Chosen of the Sun’. So if we combine her character, past and abilities and then try to imagine how such a champion should look like in League of Legends; her classic skin will be our best option. Her rest of the skins look fancy but only classic skin matches with that lore and solar flares like abilities.
Leona’s classic skin:
When I read about VI for the first time in Champion Sneak Peak, I don’t know why but she brought back some memories of Borderlands. Maybe because of that ‘vault breaker’ named ability and self-shaded sort of art. Later when I played her after she was released, I was very impressed by how RIOT Games depicted her fictional characteristics through her classic skin. This boxer chick with gigantic hextech gauntlets can even make onions cry. And I personally prefer ‘Classic Vi’ over ‘Neon Strike Vi’ (her other skin) because it is awesome and defines VI. ”Welcome to the party. Try the punch.”
VI’s classic skin:
Kha’Zix is considered to be one of the coolest champions in League of Legends, which is both in terms of game-play and appearance. That purple colored creature of the void, which possesses great animated abilities which could “Slice them apart”. This evolution concept for this Champion takes the overall presentation of this Voidreaver to yet another level and adds even more ‘cool’ factor to it. I personally like his both skins because both are equally good in the concept they exhibit.
Khazix’s classic skin:
Before the release of ‘Fox Fire Ahri’ skin, her classic skin used to be my favorite. Midnight Ahri skin isn’t that bad either. But come-on just take a look at that Classic skin, isn’t that awesome? Red and white outfit combined with her voice acting, makes a perfect 9-tailed fox. But don’t try to tame her, because she is too cunning for you!
Ahri’s classic skin:
The bad-ass spider queen has got one of the coolest looking classic skin in entire League of Legends. The Red and Black combination used for her Classic skin is just amazing. Also the animations of skill shots fit perfectly with this Classic skin. And did you see those spider legs in her human form? No doubt, Champion designers have done a great job.
Elise’s classic skin:
Do nothing but read lore of this champion or maybe just this part, “Power belongs to those who can wield it” and then imagine how a female mage champion with such thoughts would look like?
Classic Syndra skin is your answer. Isn’t it? Well, at least for me it is!
Those dark spheres and purple abilities sit perfectly with her classic skin. Her ‘judicator syndra’ skin is also good but classic one is way better, in my opinion.
Syndra’s classic skin:
This guy craves recognition through slaying the prisoners in dramatic ways. Therefore, he donned bright outfits. But he never wanted to look & talk like an alien or something, as depicted by ‘Soul Reaver Draven’ skin. Therefore, I personally rank his classic skin more than his others not just because his other skins don’t really fit in, but also because his classic skin looks really cool. His Voice acting plus Classic skin sums up well. Welcome to the League of Draven!
Draven’s classic skin:
Diana’s classic skin combined with skill animations and that crazy looking Crescent Blade makes it better than even many premium skins for other League of Legends champions. Just like Leona, Diana’s classic skin fits best with her character and lore. At least for now it will remain the same, until Riot Games ask their Champion Designers to develop something amazing for Diana.
Diana’s classic skin:
After Ashe’s rework, her stock skin became much better than what it used to be. She has been rewarded with nicer animations, especially that ‘draw arrow’, load & fire animation because now it makes sense as well as looks great.
“No really. Put that apple on your head”. Or maybe a Samsung?
It’s a bad joke and i know it.
Ashe’s classic skin:
