If you thought that the only way to get skins is to buy them, you were wrong. There are multiple ways of getting skins in League of Legends for free. Playing more games and completing tasks will get you a bunch of different loot. If you want to know more about how to get free skins, read the following tips.

1. Open Chests

Hextech Chest

One of the best ways to get skins totally for free is by opening various chests. Playing more games and getting higher grades with champions will get you loot. Opening chests there is a possibility that you will get random champion skin shards, but can also get ward skin shard, champion shard, emotes, etc. The chance of getting a skin shard depends on what kind of chest you open. For example, Hextech Chest guarantees you 50% of getting a skin shard, while Masterwork Chest guarantees 70%. To upgrade skin shards you will need orange essence. You can get them by disenchanting owned skin shards. Rarest skins will guarantee you more orange essence, while legacy skins will get you less. You can also upgrade a skin by rerolling 3 skin shards. Pick any 3 skin shards and reroll them to get random skin permanent. Rerolling will automatically unlock you permanent skin, but you will lose 3 skin shards. This way of getting skins may be free, but it will require a lot of games. If you want to speed this process up, you can always buy the loot by using Riot Points.
