A popular League of Legends skin line received three new additions on Patch 10.6! Here’s our review of the 2020 Rift Quest skins.

Fans of fantasy and role-playing games are in luck as the new League of Legends Rift Quest skins are now available on Patch 10.6. The latest additions to the series include new skins for Talon, Taric, and Twitch. But, are they worth adding to your collection of cosmetics? Let’s find out:

Talon Blackwood (1350 RP)

The first skin in the line-up is for Talon and is called Talon Blackwood, a dark elf assassin out to find treasure.

The splash art has a very cartoony feel to it, but the in-game model looks much less off-putting. Plus, this gives Talon a bit more of a light-hearted skin theme than the likes Blood Moon and Renegade. Chromas are available for this skin also!

Although this is a nice skin, it probably isn’t Talon’s best option with Blood Moon and Enduring Sword all being popular choices. However, Talon mains have had their say and are of the opinion that this could be his best skin so far with plenty of positive reviews.

Taric Luminshield (1350 RP)

Taric Luminshield is the second of the three skins, priced at 1350 RP.

This skin is fabulous, it sparkles and has rays of reflect light everywhere. It just matches Taric’s personality so well and looks so pretty. Chromas are available for this skin, but due to the quality of the base skin, that probably isn’t the best idea!

Sadly, it doesn’t look like Taric mains are happy with the skin.

Twitch Shadowfoot (1350 RP)

The final skin in this line is Twitch Shadowfoot, also priced at 1350 RP with chromas available.

This skin is like if you took regular Twitch and cleaned him up, removing his usual filthy personality. Despite the fact that the skin slightly overlaps with Medieval Twitch in theme, it has a far more modern look to it.

However, there is one deal-breaker with this skin: Twitch’s voice.

It’s a high-pitched, almost chipmunk voice and it could be argued that this is very out of place (and annoying) on Twitch. Before purchasing this skin, it would be wise to check out a preview of the skin and decide whether this would be something that would bother you in-game.

Twitch mains have differing opinions on the skin with some liking the cuter look and praising the visual effects, while others dislike the model and squeaky voice.

Overall, these additions to the Rift Quest skin line are impressive and worth a look if you’re a fan of the fantasy/RPG theme. However, with a new wave of Dark Star skins on the way later in this patch, it’s likely that the Rift Quest skins will be overlooked by the community.
