It seems like Riot is going to bring back an old and much-loved skin line for the 2022 League of Legends World Championship. Ever since 2020 fans have been saying that Spirit Blossom was one of the best skin lines ever made and that the champions in the thematic fit perfectly, well, now it seems like even more champions will be getting Spirit Blossom skins in 2022.

For the League of Legends World Championship 2022, Riot is going to release some brand-new skins according to known leakers in the community. They even stated that they were 100% sure of this, so is it alright to get hyped already?

Which Champions Can We Expect to Get Spirit Blossom Skins?

All this information comes from known leaker BigBadBear on YouTube who has explained that a multitude of champions will be getting Spirit Blossom skins around the time of the League of Legends World Championship. He did reveal two champions who will likely be receiving Spirit Blossom skins.

He stated that one champion would be getting a double variant Legendary Skin, sort of like Solar/Lunar Eclipse Leona or Dawnbringer/Nightbringer Soraka.

  • Spirit Blossom Sett (Legendary)
  • Spirit Blossom Aphelios
  • Spirit Blossom Master Yi (Prestige)
  • Spirit Blossom Syndra
  • Spirit Blossom Soraka
  • Spirit Blossom Evelynn
  • Spirit Blossom Tristana
  • Spirit Blossom Darius
  • Spirit Blossom Yorick

In the latest leak from Weibo, it was revealed that a total of nine champions should be getting Spirit Blossom skins. Previously, BigBadBear already leaked that Sett and Aphelios would get skins, but it seems that a multitude of other champions will be a part of this AU... though these are just leaks so take anything with a grain of salt.

When Will the Spirit Blossom Skins Be Released?

These skins will be released in League of Legends Patch 12.19. Before then, we will get the Monster Tamer skins, Neon Inferno skins and most likely also the updated Gothic skins if we are going to trust all the skin leaks we've heard in the recent months.

The League of Legends World Championship is usually during Patch XX.18/XX.19, so this makes complete sense in terms of timing. Of course, players will also be able to get a World Championship skin during this time with proceeds going into the League of Legends World Championship prize pool.

Will We Get a Spirit Blossom Event?

BigBadBear explained that we will likely also be getting an event, though nothing as big and elaborate as the Star Guardian event. This event will likely also be happening on Wild Rift, with BigBadBear stating that there could be some Spirit Blossom skins in the works – like a legendary Spirit Blossom skin for Akali.

So, with more Spirit Blossom skins in the works, are you even more excited about the biggest esports event, or would you rather have another skin line? Where are the upcoming Steel Valkyries skins in all of this? So many questions so little answers...
