With patch 10.24 comes the last Prestige Points skin of the year: Star Guardian Soraka Prestige Edition. After that, a new Diana skin will release in 10.25 as our last Event Prestige for the year, bringing the 2020 list of offerings to:

2020 Prestige Point Skins:

  • True Damage Senna
  • Coven Zyra
  • Arcanist Zoe
  • True Damage Yasuo
  • Patch 10.24: Star Guardian Soraka

2020 Event Prestige Skins:

  • Mecha Kingdoms Garen
  • Dark Star Malphite
  • Pulsefire Lucian
  • Spirit Blossom Teemo
  • PsyOps Ezreal
  • Obsidian Dragon Sett
  • K/DA ALL OUT Kai'Sa
  • Patch 10.25: Diana (thematic to be announced)

Many of you have been making plans for how to spend your Prestige Points, and we have an important update to share: 2020 Prestige Points are being extended partway into 2021 and there will be no 2021 Prestige Points.

Around the middle of 2021 (pending any setbacks) we're streamlining the rules around rare and exclusive content, which'll include retiring Prestige Points—full details to come as we lock things down closer to the update. With less than half the year to obtain points and less than half as many options to choose from compared to 2019 and 2020, we thought it'd be unfair to create a 2021 edition of Prestige Points. Extending 2020's points and giving you additional options to choose from felt like the right course of action.

Here's the timeline:

  • Dec 9: The 2020 End of Year Prestige Shop opens
    • 2020 Event Prestige skins become available for 100 Prestige Points, without border or icon. This is not your last chance for these skins.
    • Other content is available for Prestige Points—details below
  • Jan 28: The End of Year shop closes
    • 2020 Event Prestige skins go back to being unavailable
    • 2020 Prestige Points and Prestige Point skins will remain available
  • First half of 2021: Event Prestige and Prestige Point skins release in the first half of 2021 as normal
  • ~Late April-Late June: Shortly before the mid-year update occurs, we'll open another Prestige Point Shop
    • 2020 Event Prestige skins will once again become available for 100 Prestige Points, without border or icon
    • 2021 Event Prestige skins will also be available for 100 Prestige Points, without border or icon
    • Other content will be available for Prestige Points
  • ~Early May-Early July: The mid-year Shop closes
    • 2020 and 2021 Event Prestige and Prestige Point skins become unavailable
    • 2020 Prestige Points become unavailable
  • ~Late May-Early July: The mid-year update occurs and Prestige content begins releasing under the new model

NOTE: Since we're extending 2020 Prestige Points, Diana's Event Prestige won't be available for Prestige Points in the End of Year shop since she'll be available for event tokens for most of the duration. She'll be available for Prestige Points in the mid-year shop.

If you know in your heart of hearts that you want to spend your 2020 Prestige Points on a 2020 skin, you'll still be able to pick it up as originally scheduled. If you'd rather wait to see what comes out in the first half of 2021 before spending your points, don't worry—you aren't forfeiting your chance to nab a 2020 pick by waiting a few more months.

Here are the 2021 Prestiges we know for certain will be in the May/June shop:

2021 Prestige Skins

  • Fiora (Event Prestige)
  • Leona (Prestige Points)
  • Lulu (Event Prestige)
  • TBD Conqueror (Prestige Points). We haven't locked in this champ yet, but we’ll be considering champions that had an impact on pro play in 2020.

If additional skins become eligible, we'll let you know

Back to the present, here's what'll be in the End of Year Prestige Shop when it opens in 10.25, aside from the 2020 Event Prestige and Prestige Point skins.

    • Night & Dawn, Mecha Kingdoms, Dark Star, Pulsefire, Spirit Blossom, PsyOps, and Worlds 2020
