Yesterday I had a discussion with some of my friends while playing league. It was about the contents of the mystery gifts and while I said there are restrictions, they were convinced that you can get absolutely every skin from a gift (including victorious, and really old ones).

Now while I'm pretty sure that there are restrictions (Triumphant ryze for example), I'm not really sure on which skins they affect.

What about the victorious, riot, legacy, pax and completely removed skins (Rusty BC, Black Ali, Urf WW)? Can you get those with a mistery gift or is it impossible to get those right now?

In League of Legends FAQ site, for "What skins are eligible for Mystery Gifting?" it is said that:

Any skin for any Champion that your friend owns is eligible as a Mystery Skin, as long as your friend doesn’t already own the skin and it’s currently worth 520 RP or higher and available in the store. This includes Legendary and even Ultimate skins! All Legacy skins will also be obtainable as a Mystery Skin EXCEPT Achievement skins, Collector’s Edition skins, PAX skins, Rusty Blitzcrank, Urf the Manatee, Championship Riven and Riot Squad Singed.

There are also some Legacy skins not for sale in the store that will be obtainable as a Mystery Skin. For a complete list of all the different skin types, check out our Guide to Champion Skin Types.

You can see the mentioned skins in the following link: Guide to Champion Skin Types

  • Does it mean, if I create a new account, buy a legendary skin. Which then would be the only skin I own, then give mystery gift to friends, they would receive it? So we could save like 1500 RP each time I do that? – dyesdyes May 6 '15 at 10:23
