Hi! I'm a bit of a skin-*****, but I'm mostly pretty cheap so when I found out that Trundle and Karma would get traditional skins after their rework I bought both of them. Is there anyone who knows if Sejuani will get a traditional skin after her rework? I want to know if it's worth to get her before the rework or if I can wait until after and see how she turned out.
Also, champions like Sion and Viktor will get a visual and/or gameplay rework. Heimerdinger will also get a pretty massive rework to his kit and probably a visual as well.
Do you guys think that it will be the same with them that they will get a traditional skin?

If a champion only gets a visual rework, a traditional skin is unlikely. See: Ashe, Soraka, and Annie.

EDIT: I realized I should have said something else, as well. If a champion only gets a skill rework, a traditional skin is unlikely. See: Taric, recently.

The traditional skins are only happening because Riot is updating the champion's lore, changing the champion's look, and also making changes to the champion's kit. These are what they're calling champion "relaunches", and are the only time you should expect to see a new Traditional ________ skin.

I think it will just depend on how big the change is. For Karma and Trundle, the rework really changed their look. With Sejuani, it looks like a visual upgrade but not so much a change. I could be wrong, but their may be more info later on, so keep watching.

sejuani is getting a traditional skin

i dont think viktor is going to get a VU because his model is fine

the reason karma and trundle and sej are getting them is because their appearance is getting changed completely, if you can remeber back when kat got reworked they gave her a VU but she was almost the same just a few upgrades

like if they changed tarics visuals but still had him in his gem armor with the same gem hammer then i dont think they would give him a traditional skin because it would look the same

Are you sure? She isn't getting that changed. She still has all the previous features, noly a little different details.

I think it sounds legit what you guys say, karma and trundle got massive visual upgrades and/or massive ability rework. They almost became completely new champions.

sejuani's important change is on her passive and partially on her Q that now deals %hp damage. current passive was slighly improved and fit on her E. she will be more stable throughout the game.


As requested to GMD himself.

"As with the Trundle and Karma relaunches, those of you who already unlocked Sejuani will get a free skin based on Sejuani's traditional look."
