If you have some RP burning a hole in your pocket and want to spend it on some fresh skins for your favorite League of Legends champion, here are the best skins for Thresh, the Chain Warden.

Thresh is one of the most popular supports in all of League of Legends. His kit brings a ton of skill expression to a role that (no disrespect) often feels very mundane and bland. With so many people maining the Chain Warden, here are the best skins to buy if you want to show off the next time you hit the Rift!

Pulsefire Thresh

Cost: 1350 RP

There might be some people who like the futuristic look of this skin. I am not one of them.

The animations look incredibly clunky, the skin itself is unimpressive, and the Pulsefire skin line overall is pretty meh. Roll it all into the fact that this is one of Thresh’s more expensive skins and honestly I can’t justify ranking this one highly.

Dark Star Thresh

Cost: 1820 RP

Now, this is the most expensive skin that Thresh has. Unlike Pulsefire, though, this skin is actually decent. The animations are fairly unique compared to his other ones, especially with his lantern looking like a miniature black hole.

Blood Moon Thresh

Cost: 975 RP

Ranked low mostly because it looks like a straight-up color change of his base skin, swapping the red for green. That said, it’s got a decent price point and the animations are pretty clean. Plus, I’m a sucker for the red ninja aesthetic that this skin has going on.

Championship Thresh

Cost: 975 RP

This is a limited edition skin that is in the Legacy Vault, so you should be sure to get it whenever you can (and for 975 RP, very cheap). Even putting the rarity aside, this is one of my favorite Thresh skins.

The animations don’t feel drastically different from the base skin but, unlike the Blood Moon skin, Championship Thresh feels somehow…cleaner. The ult and Flay animations, in particular, are really good-looking. Plus, the recall animation of him on a rising stage is really nice, if a bit simplistic.

Samsung White Thresh

Cost: 750 RP

Another limited edition skin, this was Mata‘s skin awarded for being a part of the Season 4 World Championship team, Samsung White. In addition to having this historical meaning for League of Legends and esports, the skin itself is pretty damn good.

The hook animation looks more like a cord than an actual chain and having Thresh draped in the SSW hoodie is pretty nice. It’s a nice change of pace to have his skeletal head draped in a hood and him wearing white.

Deep Terror Thresh

Cost: 975 RP

This is my personal favorite Thresh skin, purely from the animation, even before it was used as the skin for Thresh in TFT for Set 2. The underwater/nautical theme really fits Thresh, and I really love how they worked that theme into each of his skill animations. The topper, though, is the recall animation, where he pulls a chest of buried treasure out of the ground. It’s absolutely amazing.

High Noon Thresh

Cost: 1350 RP

I actually don’t like the High Noon skin line terribly but in this case it fits Thresh perfectly. Not only does this skin have Thresh wreathed in flames like he’s Ghost Rider, but they replace his chain and hook with a hook and lasso. His recall animation, where he does a little do-see-do and some lasso tricks might be one of my favorite animations of his and it makes this skin worth the cost.
