Much like any other popular online game, League of Legends also offers its summoners the ability to flaunt skins on their champions as well as wards. Summoners can not only buy skins using RP (in-game currency) but also build them using skins shards acquired from loot boxes or chests.
However, when it comes to refunding skins in LOL, only the skins that you’ve bought using RP are eligible for a refund, and only 90 days after purchase Any skins that have been procured using orange essence can’t be refunded.
If you’ve purchased a skin by mistake, you can refund it without losing any refund tokens within seven days of purchase, given that you have not used it in any game, including custom games with bots. If you don’t see a warning that your refund token is being used while trying to refund an unused item in LOL, that means it is eligible for free refund.
In this article, we’re going to explain how you can refund skins in League of Legends in a few easy steps using the LOL client.
