I've been trying to decide whether I should reroll some of my owned skin shards into a different skin or just disenchant them into orange essence. However, I was unsure if it was possible to reroll into a skin that I already own. If I just end up getting a skin I already own, it would be more beneficial to just disenchant them and buy a skin that I don't own.

The only posts that I've been able to find related to this question are based around rerolling champions, for example this Arqade post, or skin types (i.e. legendary, epic, etc.), such as this Reddit post. However, I've been able to find none relating to skins.

Re-rolling 3 skin shards into a permanent will always give you a skin you do not own.

In the case you own every skin, it just re-rolls into a random skin and unlocks nothing.


Chests are random, and can contain content you may already own.

We're looking at features to allow you to use the duplicate shards in various ways. For now, you can re-roll shards to guarantee a piece of content you don't own, or you can disenchant already-owned shards to help you create permanent content from shards you don't own.

    @ChaseIngebritson Besides watching videos of people rerolling when they have all of the skins, I found a support article for you. I quoted the passage that you care about.

  • What about skins you do not own, but might not possibly be able to be gotten from shard, for example S2 Championship Riven?
