It feels like these days it’s only the new champions that are getting love.

So to pay homage to a true OG whose skin line-up feels like a timetable of Riot Games, we’re looking into Ashe and ranking her best skins.

And for this list we’re taking into account both the visuals of each skin, and the price – and, of course, this is just my personal preference mixed in here as well.

 

12. Woad Ashe

Released: July 18th, 2010
Price: 520 RP

We’re starting off with my least favorite Ashe skin, Woad.

I get what they were going for with this, as an archer character seems like an obvious choice for the wilderness hunter theme. But I think it just misses the mark completely.

Although the splash art gets its point across, the in-game model just feels like a really bad Chroma.

A lot of Ashe’s skin are very minimalistic – but this was is the worst of them in my books. Especially since there’s a different skin that nails a similar theme way more effectively.

 

11. Queen Ashe

Released: September 21st, 2010
Price: 975 RP

This skin is just not worth the price tag. I know it’s an old legacy skin, but the in-game model just looks like a really bad revamp.

The design of the dress is pretty simple and nice – but nothing about this skin really screams “Queen”, so Ashe just looks like she is going out for a dinner party.

And when you’re in a game, that aesthetic just comes off as wonky.

I still prefer it to Woad Ashe – but the higher price tag stops this one from going any higher in our ranking.

 

10. Amethyst Ashe

Released: November 15th, 2011
Price: 975 RP

Let’s face it: this is no one’s favorite skin, but I think it is okay.

Yes, it’s just another color swap at the end of the day. But I think it looks decent.

The purple and gold combo makes her pop out a bit more, plus her bow has a very nice simple design, and her overall model seems fitted for a battlefield.

There’s no one singular theme that this skin draws upon, either. Which is why a lot of people seem to hate it.

But I think it’s alright for what it is (although still overpriced).

 

9. Freljord Ashe

Released: November 20th, 2009
Price: 520 RP

This skin could have easily been Ashe’s base skin.

It’s another color swap, only it’s appropriately priced as such.

It has a very dominant white and gold theme that both looks fancy enough to be worn by a queen, and practical enough to be worn by a Freljord.

Not much more to say about it though.

It is an okay chroma-esque skin that doesn’t price itself like it was a completely original design, so it gets a pass.

 

8. Championship Ashe

Released: September 12th, 2017
Price: 1350 RP

This might be a hot take, but I simply think that this skin is not worth the money.

The fact that it’s a championship skin is the only real cool aspect about it, being that the visuals are simply bland.

It’s the same old Ashe, only now she has some fancy-looking armor on.

The color choices are pretty good, and the particles are clean. But in no way do I think it’s worth coughing up 1350 RP.

If it was priced at 975, it would have gone up a few ranks. But being what it is, I simply think that you can achieve more with less.

 

7. Sherwood Forest Ashe

Released: April 8th, 2010
Price: 520 RP

Speaking of doing more with less, may I present Sherwood Forest Ashe.

Yes, this skin is pretty basic. But it also does its theme justice while remaining dirt-cheap.

It’s a skin as old as time – but I think it’s your best bet if you’re looking for a traditional hunter aesthetic.

The color green is dominant in the skin, letting her abilities pop out more. And the standard wooden bow fits the overall theme perfectly.

I might be alone on this one, but I think it’s an extremely good bang for your buck.

 

6. PROJECT: Ashe

Released: August 1st, 2016
Price: 1820 RP

Just another case of an okay skin being priced too high.

The PROJECT skin-line usually produces some bangers, but this is just not one of them.

This is because you won’t really see the cool parts of the skin in action.

The dance animation is amazing, and so are some of the idle voice lines. But the actual ability animations leave much to be desired.

With the exception of her E, all of the abilities look like the base ones with a coat of sparkles.

Were it 975 RP or even 1350 RP, my tone would be a bit different. But as it is, it’s simply not worth the price.

 

5. Cosmic Queen Ashe

Released: August 21st, 2018
Price: 1350 RP

I’ll admit that this is a very simple and very well-designed skin.

Again, Ashe being what she is, there isn’t too much room for new animations. But the skin still does have some really nice features.

Personally, I really like how distinct her Q animation is (making her bow go from gold into a deep blue) as I feel like it usually goes a bit overlooked.

The other animations are very subtle, but fit the theme well enough.

The backing animation and some of the emotes are also pretty dope.

Overall, a very good skin that was just missing that little umph to push it up higher up on this list.

 

4. Marauder Ashe

Released: February 11th, 2015
Price: 750 RP

This skin is extremely simple but provides a great bang for your buck.

It just changes the character model. But I think the change is drastic enough to make it worth considering.

Well, that and the fact that it’s only 750 RP.

It gives Ashe some really nice-looking battle armor, a red cape, and a Skyrim-looking bow, while leaving the animations as they were.

It’s nothing to write home about. But I think the mix of value and uniqueness makes it more than qualified to play with the big boys.

 

3. High Noon Ashe

Released: October 10th, 2019
Price: 1820 RP

Thematically, this is another skin that just made perfect sense.

Although I will admit that it’s not as cool as some of the other High Noon skins, it’s still pretty epic.

Especially if we’re talking about some of the idol and movement animations.

Ashe’s home-guard animation (as well as her backing animation) now have her riding a black horse, which alone makes this skin top 3 material.

The in-game model is also pretty decent, and the E animation fits right in while the Q, W, and R animations are pretty basic but still okay.

 

2. Fae Dragon Ashe

Released: October 1st, 2020
Price: 1350 RP

If we’re talking about nice color palettes, this skin has it down to a science.

At a glance, it’s very obvious that it’s a newer skin since all the animations are colorful to the max.

This skin also has one of the best-looking ults out of all the Ashe skins: it features a dragon swirling around your CC delivery.

Hell, even the chromas are pretty decent for this skin.

The only real complaint I have is that it’s not as instantly recognizable or memorable as our number one pick!

 

1. Heartseeker Ashe

Released: February 14th, 2014
Price: 975 RP

Although some might see this as another meme skin, I think it’s the best value that you’ll find in Ashe’s line-up.

The in-game model is really well made, the splash art showcases what a simp Tryndamere is, and the in-game animations are instantly recognizable. Especially the ulti.

Because what’s more iconic that being hit by a giant heart arrow from the other side of the map as the power of love (and the enemy turret) kill you over the duration of three seconds?

And you get all of this for only 975 RP!
