The much-anticipated rework (and upgrade) of Volibear lastly went live in League of Legends with a new patch previously in the week. To honor the minute, designer Riot Games will be distributing the brand-new Thousand-Pierced Bear skin of Volibear free of charge to all players as part of a time-limited event.

According to the main statement, the only requirement to be eligible for the giveaway is to own Volibear and to login before June 10. Those who already owned Volibear prior to patch 10.11 will instantly certify, while those without can update their League of Legends client to the new patch 10.11 and unlock the champion prior to the aforementioned date.

Bear in mind that gamers should leave and relog in order to see the brand-new Thousand-Pierced Bear skin in their collection, which will become a regularly-purchasable skin for 975 RP once the giveaway ends. Volibear presently costs 4,800 Blue Essence to buy from the shop and 2,880 Blue Essence to craft from champion shards. Those running low on Blue Essence can merely play a couple of League of Legends matches to collect sufficient currency for the champ. There’s still another week to go.

Developing a free skin isn’t something we plan on providing for future champion updates, but in this case we felt like it was the right call. We hope fans of Volibear’s eldritch scary concept enjoy this one-time reward!

Volibear was initially released in League of Legends back in November 2011 as the very first brand-new champ of the second season. His set and gameplay became rapidly obsoleted once the video game progressed with new and better champions. As a result, the community picked Volibear (together with Fiddlesticks) for a full rework last year. The new and enhanced variation now features a lot of brand-new tricks and fair to say, that brand-new champ model is likewise pretty frustrating to deal with versus in the video game.
