How to Get Hextech Nocturne Skin in League of Legends is simple in concept, but it won't be easy. Here's how to snag the shiny new Nocturne skin.

Like the other Hextech skins, you'll have to craft it from gemstones. You can get gemstones from opening Hextech or Masterwork chests, League of Legends's version of a loot crate. You can get a Hextech chest for free after a game where you earn S Rank with champion you own. They are also purchasable from the shop with Riot Points. Your chances of getting a gemstone are the same for either Hextech or Masterwork chests.

You need 10 gemstones to craft the Hextech skin for any Champion who has one. Nocturne will be getting a Hextech skin for Patch 10.12 on June 18. Hextech skins can also appear when you re-roll skin shards and permanents. Hextech Nocturne features new sound effects and animations.

Gemstones are fairly rare drops from chests. You'll only get a gemstone a little under 4% of the time, but you'll be guaranteed one every 50 levels after level 150. Gemstones are also sometimes given out during events, and you'll be able to buy them for Blue Essence during Essence Emporium.
