We rank the League of Legends Valentine’s Day skins.

Valentine’s Day is about a week away and some love is coming to the Rift as all of the Valentine’s Day-themed skins make their return to League of Legends. There are 14 skins that match this holiday, so let’s find out which get the most love in the rankings.

14. Heart seeker Lucian

Cost:1350 RP

I look at this skin and think “this guy is a big-time player and is pretty creepy,” not I want a date with him. It just seems like they tried too hard to get him to fit with the theme and it doesn’t work. I think a Debonair Lucian skin would have worked better.

13. Heart Seeker Vayne

Cost: 975 RP.

This is another champion I don’t think fits the theme. Like what about a monster hunter screams out love to me? It’s only 975 RP though which isn’t bad for this skin.

12. Sweetheart Rakan

Cost:1350 RP

Rakan was a kind of tough ranking for me. On one hand, I love the thematic of him and Xayah, the lover’s duo, as sweethearts, but I just don’t find this skin visually appealing. That’s sad because, as you’ll see later on, I’m quite the fan of Xayah’ s.

11. Heart Seeker Orianna

Cost: 1350 RP

It’s not a bad skin and I can see how it fits the theme. It’s the old “robot wants to find love” cliché, yet somehow this skin seems forgettable. It just doesn’t seem like a better skin than the others in the line.

10. Heart Seeker Varus

Cost: 1350 RP

This is another skin I’m just not sure how to rate. Thematically, it works because of Varus wielding a bow much like cupid, but like with Rakan I’m not sold on the visual appeal of this skin. I wouldn’t be buying this skin at least not until it’s on sale.

9. Heart Seeker Quinn

Cost: 975 RP

This skin does fit the theme with Quinn having arrows and Valor turning into a of love bird. The only problem is that the skin just doesn’t stand out. Quinn is a bit limited on skins though, so this is a decent choice for her.

8. Heart Seeker Yummi

Cost:1350 RP

This one I talked about a good bit in my last article. It’s fun and fits the theme. I just don’t like it has much as a few others on this list, so that’s why it rates in the middle.

7. Sweet Heart Sona

Cost: 975

This one is cute, but it still feels like it lacks something to really make it special. Although I do like it’s not too expensive and it does have hearts added to all the abilities. It’s a good skin to rank in the middle of the list.

6. Heart Piercer Fiora

Cost: 1350 RP

This one is the only Heart Fiercer skin, but it fits Fiora well. I get a “Queen of Hearts” vibe from this skin and just want to yell “off with their head!” It might seem a bit violent, but I think the hearts and roses tone it down a bit. Either way, it’s just a good-looking skin.

5. Heart Seeker Jinx

Cost: 1350 RP

This another one of new additions to the line. I like this skin a good bit and recommend it for purchase. Just watch out for the candy chompers, or her rose ultimate as those are two gifts I don’t think you want to receive this Valentine’s Day.

4. Heart Breaker Vi

Cost:1350 RP

I have a soft spot for Vi as one of my favorite champions and this is one of my favorite skins for her. I enjoy seeing her with a heart that breaks after the third hit. It’s a fun skin to use and something different for the usual talent nature of VI.

3. Sweet Heart Ashe

Cost: 975 RP

This is a great skin. It fits in with Ashe playing cupid with their bow. It’s also quite fun to see a giant heart arrow coming after you when she uses her ultimate. I just really like this skin as one of the better ones in the line.

2. Sweet Heart Annie

Cost: 750 RP

I think this skin is the perfect match for this set. Annie looks sweet and kind, then bam sticks Tibbers after you.

Speaking of Tibbers the now pink bear with a heart fits perfectly with buying giant bears for people on this holiday. Plus its only 750 RP, which is the best deal this Valentine’s Day.

1. Sweet Heart Xayah

Cost: 1350 RP

As stated before, I’m a huge fan of this skin. It’s so pretty and the duo of her and Rakan fits so well in this theme. The difference between this skin and the lower-rated Rakan is I feel like she has a better and prettier color scheme.

Next: 10.3 jungle tier list

If they both had something similar I think they would both be ranked in the top two (or together because why separate them on Valentine’s Day?). For now, though it’s the bride getting all the attention.
