Wards have been illuminating the darkness of Summoner’s Rift since the beginning of League of Legends. With the advancements in graphic technology, wards aren’t quite like they used to be – now, they give you something really worth bragging about.
Millions of people around the world are playing League of Legends, and nearly every person knows about ward skins and has some in their collection. Riot Games is making billions of dollars each year, and if you’re familiar with the game, you probably already know where this money comes from. Most of the money comes from champion skins – so much thought goes into creating those skins.
Then, you have ward skins, and while they have a low price tag on them, they’re not really worth picking up for RP. These days, you can get ward skins through Hextech Crafting.
When thinking about ward skins, our mind instantly goes to the rarest ones in League of Legends. There aren’t any actual lists of the rarest ward skins in League of Legends, so we checked the availability of each ward skin and made an educated guess – the ward skins on this list are what we feel are the rarest ward skins in League of Legends…

10. Gingerbread Ward
Personally, we feel that the Gingerbread Ward skin is the best of the Snowdown ward skins. The Gingerbread Ward skin was first available on December 15, 2012, for a little under a month. A year later, on December 10, 2013, it was available again for the same amount of time.
9. Poro Ward
How do you feel about Poros? There are stories of a Poro that showed up to help Avarosa when her village was raided. When these cute little guys appeared, Avarosa didn’t know anything about them. Then, Poros started to show up, one by one, until the hall was packed full of them. Poros are magical, mysterious, and loving creatures that originated from the Freljord. Poros are just insanely cute, and the Poro Ward is a ward that just can’t be stepped over. This ward skin was available in the shop for 640 RP between the dates of December 16, 2014, to January 30, 2015. It’s a cute ward skin but is a bit on the basic side, so you probably won’t run across this one in the game.
8. Nightbringer Ward
The Nightbringer Ward was only available for a couple of weeks, which is why it is labeled one of the rarest ward skins in League of Legends. The Nightbringer Ward was obtainable by either getting the Way of Chaos Pass or the Way of Order Pass. This was the only way for you to get the Nightbringer Ward skin, which is why not many players on League of Legends has this ward skin.
7. Season 4 Championship Ward
We know that Riot likes to introduce championship ward skins, and season 4 was no different. This ward was in the shop for the standard ward skin price of 640 RP. It was only available for 18 days, many players likely missed this, and it’ll be extremely rare to find one in-game.
6. 2015 All-Star Team Ice Ward
The All-Star event that took place back in 2015 was memorable, to say the least. During this time, teams of Fire and Ice went up against each other – these groups contained professional players from around the world. During the All-Star Team event, League of Legends players could purchase the Team Ice or Team Fire bundles – each one came with a relevant ward skin.
5. Season 3 Championship Ward
The Season 3 Championship Ward skin is one of the rarest ward skins in League of Legends – if you are ever able to get your hands on this skin, then you’re lucky. The Season 3 Championship Ward skin was released on December 13, 2013, and it was available to buy until the end of pre-season. Not many players seem to have this ward skin, probably because they didn’t realize how rare it would be in the future.
4. Tomb Angel Ward
During the Harrowing Event in 2012, there were five new ward skins being introduced in League of Legends. These ward skins, including the Tomb Angel Ward skin, was available from October 26, 2012, to November 13, 2012. During this time, there were many ward skins players could choose from, and this one didn’t look as appealing as the others, which is why we chose this out of all the others that were available.
3. Victorious Ward 2014
The Victorious Ward 2014 will always be rare. League of Legends didn’t have as many players back in 2014 as it did now, so can you imagine the number of players that missed out on this skin?
2. Victorious Ward 2015
In order to get this skin, you had to have a total of 25 ranked premade 5v5 wins. During the 2015 season, League of Legend players were able to earn points simply by winning ranked games in a group of 5 people. This doesn’t sound too hard, but if you stop and think about it, a small percentage of the LoL community would own the Victorious Ward 2015 skin.
1. Riot Ward
You probably already know that PAX Twisted Fate is the rarest League of Legends skin you’re going to find. Now, this right here, the Riot Ward, is equivalent to that – you could only get this Ward Skin by attended Pax East 2014.
So there you have it – the 10 Rarest Ward Skins in League of Legends. Again, this is something that we had to do research to determine. Can you think of any other ward skins in League of Legends that you feel deserves to be on this list?
