"League of Legends" has grown into one of the most popular and re-playable games that the world has ever seen. Different champions connect with different players according to play style, personality, and quite importantly, how they look. Riot has done a marvelous job during its tenure as one of the most popular MOBAs in the world with the implementation of microtransactions within the game.

"League of Legends" is free to play, meaning anyone can download the client right now and enjoy the core essence of the game. Riot also allows players to unlock in-game items such as new champions and runes that will help complete the overall experience. However, if players want to customize the way their characters look, they will have to go the extra mile and spend some real life money to purchase these character skins.

According to PC Gamer, the newest skin reveal that Riot has announced is that of Elementalist Lux. This is a special skin that has a lot of major tweaks, charming aesthetics, and vast attention to detail, that is sure to give "League of Legends" players some street cred as they venture out into Summoner's Rift.

As per iDigital Times, what makes this skin so special, is the fact that it seems to be multiple skins in one; with Lux changing color patterns and aesthetics based on how the player builds her. The Ultimate skin will charge around $25 in Riot points, appealing to the most hardcore fans of the game.

This Ultimate skin is one in a long line of other ultimate skins that Riot has released in the past (i.e. Pulsefire Ezreal, DJ Sona), however, fans seem to welcome these high-priced DLC content. Riot has done an impressive job in creating genuine excitement for its skins and add-ons for "League of Legends." Add-on content and paid DLC have made many gamers frustrated and cynical over the years, but Riot may have just found the perfect balance of paying for extra and listening to what the player wants.

Riot definitely deserves credit due to their great effort, understanding of aesthetic appeal, and constantly keeping "League of Legends" feeling fresh. This great care keeps players coming back for more and looking forward to what the future brings.
