After months of waiting, esports fans have finally caught a glimpse of the highly anticipated DRX Worlds skins. This exclusive line of skins pays tribute to the League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) team’s remarkable victory at Worlds 2022, which took place from September 29 to November 5, 2022 in North America.
The official splash art showcases a selection of six champions meticulously chosen by DRX’s triumphant roster. Each skin exudes a mesmerizing celestial dragon theme, intricately crafted with captivating blue and indigo color schemes.
This design choice draws inspiration from DRX’s colors, creating a seamless fusion of aesthetics. The dragon theme also incorporates elements from DRX’s previous team name, DragonX, adding a nostalgic touch to the collection.

Prior to finalizing the designs of these skins, BeryL personally asked the Riot Games team to model his DRX Worlds Ashe skin after a character from Honkai Impact 3, to which they said yes.
