League of Legends now boasts over 1400 skins, and that number is expected to grow in the future. Skins range from Normal, Epic, Legendary, Legacy, Ultimate, Prestige skins, and more. Prestige skins, on the other hand, require more than just grinding. No, you cannot purchase them with Orange Essence and Riot Points. Acquiring them requires a unique and rare currency called the Mythic Essence.

What is Mythic Essence in League of Legends
Mythic Essence is another essential in-game currency in League of Legends alongside Blue and Orange Essence. In the client, players can access a special and exclusive shop called the Mythic Shop where you can purchase mythic tier content such as Mythic and Prestige skins. Before Patch 12.06, players could only spend gems or prestige points, but that all changed with the introduction of Mythic Essence.
The amount of Mythic Essence that you currently possess can be found by clicking on the loot tab at the top of the client. These do not expire so feel free to keep it until you’ve found the best prestige skin that you wanna pay for.
