For an armoured arbalest, Medieval Twitch fits the bill yet feels incomplete.

It’s not that the skin isn’t clear as there’s an oppressive helmet that certainly stands out.

Besides, there’s additional though sparse armour like the right gauntlet.

Nonetheless, as far as armour is concerned it seems inexplicably unevenly worn.

The small quiver on his back with additional bolts is a good touch but again leaves a mixed feeling as the tips impractically point outwards.

What is a definite highlight is the repeating recurve crossbow wielded by Twitch.

The clear yet small magazine coupled with the carved limb provide a unique design; though the magazine is quite stylized, only revealing three extra bolts that are smaller than the one loaded.

All in all, Medieval Twitch is an uneven skin with an interesting idea that is salvaged by the attractive crossbow.

If you can get the skin, it’s worth using it but doesn’t feel like it’s worth going to great lengths to get.

Medieval Twitch


  • It was conceived by the 2 people that first hit 350 friend referrals: Grez and Greyrir Wolfwood. Grez picked the champion that would receive Medieval Twitch, and Greyrir Wolfwood designed a "Medieval Twitch, with a fleur-de-lis on his cape, and a pot on his head". The idea was given to the Riot artists and Medieval Twitch was released a few months later.
  • Medieval Twitch holds the distinction for being the rarest skin in the game.


  • On the left we find only a black patch of nothingness; not even filler.
  • On the right we find Twitch and some filler behind him and a place to stand.
  • The platform could be interpreted as a balcony or tower top but nothing is clear.
  • Twitch’s depiction is the very definition of uneven: parts of the metal are very nicely shaded to demonstrate its unpolished surface yet the rest is particularly sketchy and drab.
  • All in all, this is a splash art that has only a few instances of good quality but isn’t very good overall.
