Store and Riot Points

League of Legends Southeast Asia has different skin tier price per server due to the differences in average income per region. However, except for the Vietnam server, all other servers follow the same skin rarity tier guideline of Riot Games with consistent pricing as well as item token pricing during events. In addition, Garena servers also have their own loot systems seperated from Hextech Crafting. The available methods to get certain skins may also be changed. For example, Prestige skins are removed from Hextech Crafting. There are regular discount events instead of weekly skin sales. Garena Shells are the currency used to purchase RP icon RP.
