Kayle Skins

KAYLE SKINS

In spite of most of Kayle’s skins closely adhering to her classic style they manage to provide some distinct looks. Battleborn Kayle is the recommended skin due to its elegant ornamentation and attractive style. It elaborates on her angelic persona with a suitable warrior style.

Viridian Kayle isn’t a bad skin for its price. It won’t impress but it manages to provide an appealing aesthetic and retain Classic Kayle’s familiar look. As far as re-textures go it’s an acceptable option.

The legendary choice, Aether Wing Kayle, is a skin better left for dedicated Kayle fans. Both fantasy and sci-fi fans will find conflicting elements in its concept and execution. It’s a skin with some shining moments but, in general, the pastiche of themes doesn’t feel as satisfying as it should.

Finally, Riot Kayle is worth catching for fans of Kayle while available. In spite of being a fictional take on her law enforcing role it manages a reasonable and appealing aspect. In terms of legacy-promotional skins, Riot Kayle is an interesting choice.

Riot Kayle

For a skin that isn’t exactly realistic Riot Kayle’s appearance is quite believable.

The uniform is practical and well protected while the helmet is reasonably designed.

The wings make for an attractive flying device thanks to the animated propellers; which also match the recall drones.

The baton-sword is a bit exaggerated, like the emergency lights on the shoulders, but it’s a measured stretch.

Besides, during Righteous Fury the siren is low and the ...

Unmasked Kayle

Unmasked Kayle

Unmasked Kayle is a skin that simply became obsolete with the release of Battleborn Kayle.

The only characteristic worth highlighting is the lack of a helmet which exposes Kayle’s beautiful features.

The other changes are as minimal as they could be: new textures that darken the golden armour and sword as well as her wings.

The effect of rusty gold and dusted wings is appealing but also inconsequential due to the general similarity with Classic Kayle.

In the ...

Judgment Kayle

Judgment Kayle

Judgment Kayle is rather unique in that it’s the only skin that gives clothes instead of armour to Kayle.

Still, the appearance is befitting of Kayle’s traditional implacable style.

The dark clothes are mute yet appealing and the decoration, while impractical, is finely designed.

The hood shadows her visage so at to reinforce her stern look which matches the austere and dented aspect of her sword.

Additionally, the contrasting tone of her wings as well as ...

Aether Wing Kayle

Aether Wing Kayle

Aether Wing Kayle is a skin with its ups and downs: it has its brief moments of brilliance but fails at feeling truly inspiring.

Firstly, the concept is a mixed bag that fuses technology with mysticism and ends up constantly crossing between the realms of fantasy and sci-fi but never fusing them together.

Its elements not only feel confusing but they are also constantly clashing between both themes. Secondly, the model is rather simple for a hi-tech angel: the wings stand ...

Silver Kayle

Silver Kayle

Silver Kayle is a nice and simple re-texture of the Judicator.

While it’s nothing out of this world it does use an attractive colour palette.

The ensuing silver and blue colour scheme works quite well and gives Kayle a different but still familiar apparance.

Based on its availability it’s mostly a collector’s item yet it has enough quality to be, at the very least, ...

Battleborn Kayle

Battleborn Kayle

Battleborn Kayle is a skin that shows the Judicator with a classic battle angel style.

The armour is exquisitely ornamented and the sword elegantly designed; it sure looks as equipment befitting an angel.

Moreover, Kayle’s beauty is displayed with the lack of a helmet yet a tiara or other decoration would’ve been appropriate.

Her wings also receive a new elliptical shape but being based on the original Classic Kayle’s proportions they appear too small and short to ...

Viridian Kayle

Viridian Kayle

Viridian Kayle is just a re-texture but it’s more ambitious than the usual ones.

The grey and green colour scheme stands apart well from Classic Kayle yet it preserves her traditional style.

The dark wings stand out thanks to the mute metal hue as well as the green decorations and clothes.

All things considered, it isn’t a striking skin at all but for a re-texture it does enough and rather ...
