In 2021, Riot Games announced that they were aiming to release at least 140 new skins to League of Legends and have done an amazing job of reaching that goal. Here's what we think are the top five skin sets of 2021.

On Dec. 14, League of Legends will be releasing what is thought to be their final skin set of the year, the Debonair 2.0 skins. Featured in this skin set are Debonair skins for Master Yi, Zed, Draven, Brand, Malzahar, Leona and LeBlanc.

5 Best League of Legends Skin Sets of 2021

The top five skin sets chosen are beautiful not just in splash art concept, but also in-game. With different SFX and VFX, these skin sets are both incredible to look at as well as play with. In no specific order, here are the five best League of Legends skin sets of 2021.

1. Dragonmancer

Riot released the Dragonmancer skin set which included dragon-themed skins for several different champions including Ashe, Yasuo, Kai'Sa, Aurelion-Sol, Lee Sin, Sett and many more. These skins weren't bound by a similar design scheme, but individually created following the same dragon-inspired theme. Both splash art and in-game visuals surpassed the expectations of fans.

2. Coven

The Coven skin set was released back in July this year, featuring a unique elegant yet dark concept. Champions such as LeBlanc, Morgana, Lissandra, Malphite and others were given Coven skins. Once again, Riot impressively released beautiful splash arts for each champion while also including Coven details into their gameplay. The Coven skin set was most definitely one of Riot's most popular skins sets this year.

3. Space Groove

This fun space-themed set was released a few months after the start of season 11. Space Groove skins for Nasus, Lux, Blitzcrank, Lulu and others were added to the shop. Along with this set, League of Legends also released a space-themed TFT event, creating an overall fun experience for players.

4. Crystal Rose

The Crystal Rose skin set was only released for Zyra and Swain. This set was released with the Withering Rose, made for Syndra and Talon. The Crystal Rose skin set, although it was limited to the two champions, was not only elegant in the splash out released with it, but in the game as well. League of Legends fans were in awe of the beautiful skin set.

5. Bees!

This unique universe in the League of Legends world is a place where every champion is a bee. The Bee skin was extremely popular to League of Legends fans as it displayed adorable skins and Bee-inspired nicknames for Yuumi, Teemo, Kog 'Maw, Malzahar and Singed. Riot did an incredible job releasing these skins as they were quite random yet enjoyable to many League of Legends players.
