Okay let's be real these skins aren't really a big surprise. Riot announced the arrival of the High Noon skins at the beginning of Season 12 when they said they'd be bringing the skin line back and well leakers have been hard at work to reveal the champions to us as well.
What is surprising is just how many we are getting. In League of Legends Patch 12.9 Riot revealed the first batch of brand-new High Noon skins and in Patch 12.10, along with a huge durability update, we're receiving even more skins in the High Noon universe.
All New High Noon Skins in 2022
These Champions Are Getting High Noon Skins in Patch 12.10
So, with the reveal of the new High Noon skins we're going to be getting five more champion skins in 2022. So, which champions will get skins for the second half? Let's check it out!
- High Noon Tahm Kench
- High Noon Samira
- High Noon Sion
- High Noon Twitch
- High Noon Viktor
Tahm Kench was probably the most obvious addition, since the catfish was front and centre along with Leona in her splash art. He does fit into the universe though, and who would have thought that the train was actually going to be Sion, eh?

These Champions Are Getting High Noon Skins in Patch 12.9
In total, five champions are going to be getting High Noon skins. These are all foretold by leakers already, but we're excited for them anyway. Especially the legendary Leona skins. This is her second legendary skin after Solar and Lunar Eclipse Leona and she is thriving.
- High Noon Leona (Legendary Skin)
- High Noon Talon Prestige Edition
- High Noon Talon
- High Noon Katarina
- High Noon Mordekaiser
- High Noon Varus
These Champions Already Own High Noon Skins
There are quite a few champions already part of the Cowboys vs. Demons skin line. The High Noon Gothic universe encompasses a multitude of characters, so let's check out who the Sheriff of this town is and who is making their life literal hell.
- Sherriff Caitlyn
- Longhorn Alistar
- Desperada Cassiopeia
- Cowgirl Miss Fortune
- High Noon Darius
- High Noon Jhin
- High Noon Lucian
- High Noon Twisted Fate
- High Noon Yasuo
- High Noon Ashe
- High Noon Irelia
- High Noon Senna
- Sonoran Kog'Maw
- Sandscourge Skarner
- Devils and Demons
- Bandito Fiddlesticks
- High Noon Hecarim
- High Noon Thresh
- High Noon Urgot
It is important to note that not all of these skins are part of the official High Noon skin line. Desperada Cassiopeia was released eons ahead of the High Noon skin line, but she fits into the western setting, which is why Riot added her into this skin line.
Sadly, the skin bios for the 2022 additions haven't been released yet so we don't know under which categories the new skins belong, but we can already predict Mordekaiser to be a demon and let's be real Varus also fits the bill for Demon.
How Much Will the High Noon Skins Cost?
These skins will likely cost 1350 RP since they're all Epic skins. Only Leona will be more pricey since she is receiving a legendary skin. So expect the Leona skin to be 1820 RP instead.
If you want to pick up the Prestige edition of Talon, then you'll have to make sure you save up your Mythic Essence and then check out the Mythic shop. You don't want to miss out on such a cool skin!
Will There Be A High Noon Event?
Leakers have revealed that we should be getting an in-client event for the High Noon. With the Eclipse event being so small and short, this could become a reality.
At first, it seemed odd to have an event overlapping, but the Eclipse Event only encompasses a few missions to gain chests, while the High Noon event could be a larger scale event akin to that of the Firecracker Event earlier in 2022 and the Anima Squad Event.
The first missions of the High Noon event have been in the client since May 12, 2022. Below, you can see an overview of all missions that have been released to date. If there are more, we will, of course, add them!
|Chapter 1 of 10: A Western Prophecy|
|Chapter 2 of 10: Croaker Broker|
|Chapter 3 of 10: A Bet’s Debt|
|Chapter 4 of 10: Vicious Vermin|
|Chapter 5 of 10: The Enemy of My Enemy|
|Chapter 6 of 10: Death of an Angel|
|Chapter 7 of 10: Black Magic Woman|
|Chapter 8 of 10: As Foretold|
|Chapter 9 of 10: Spurn the Devil|
|Chapter 10 of 10: The Final Ride|
|MSI 2022 High Noon Wardrobe Mission|
|MSI 2022 High Noon Orb Mission|
You can, of course, buy a battle pass for this event as always! For 1650 RP, there is the LoL High Noon Pass, and for 2650 RP, there is the pass bundle where High Noon Talon including the champion is definitely the highlight!
Will More High Noon Skins Be Coming in Season 12?
Why yes, yes there are more High Noon skins! In LoL Patch 12.9, the first batch will be released, while a second batch of skins will follow right after in Patch 12.10. But it was pretty obvious from the hints and signs in the splash arts that there would be a multitude of High Noon skins in 2022.
When Will the High Noon Skins Be Released?
The new skins are being put on PBE and should be ready for League of Legends Patch 12.9. Not only will these skins release in that patch, but you've also got the EDG World Championship skins to look forward to.
Patch 12.9 is an exciting one with multiple skins, as well as a mid-scope update to Taliyah, as well as one for our favorite jungler Olaf. So many changes all in one patch. We cannot forget that MSI 2022 is also kicking off a day before the patch drops!
The second half of the skins will come in Patch 12.10. Unfortunately, we don't have any news on Bel'Veth yet, the new void jungler seemingly getting pushed back due to bugs and, maybe, the durability update. Hopefully we get to see her on the rift soon.
