Ranking the Best Malzahar Skins in League of Legends

Malzahar Best Skins

Looking for a great new Malzahar skin to show off your skills and intimidate your foes? We evaluated every Malz skin and ranked them from the worst to best Malzahar skin, so you can find the best skin for your Void Prophet!

Malzahar is one of the best mid lane mages in League of Legends. He’s most famous for his malefic visions, which deals significant damage over time and bounces from one enemy to the next as it kills them. One of Malz’s other fantastic abilities allows him to suppress a single enemy champion while dealing massive damage to them and anyone near them. This is a fantastic ability that can help lock down enemy carries that would otherwise tear through your team. If you’d like to dig deeper into how to best improve your Malzahar play, check out either our Malzahar build or strategy guide.

With that introduction out of the way, let’s get onto the Malzahar skin rankings:

8) Overlord Malzahar Skin (520 RP)

Malzahar’s overlord skin is elementary. We can barely tell the difference between it and the vanilla Malzahar skin. This skin is so similar to the basic one; it’s doubtful anyone will even know you have a special skin. In that light, it’s like throwing the RP away, getting it. Look to a better skin.

7) Djinn Malzahar Skin (520 RP)

Malz’s Djinn skin adds a new outfit and some minor voidling skin changes. They’re okay, but nothing special. If you want a desert prince theme, we recommend Shadow Prince, as it’s very similar yet better looking, in our opinion.

6) Shadow Prince (520 RP)

If you only have a few RP left to spend, this isn’t a bad outfit change, but that’s all it is. It’s effectively an overpriced and fancy chroma. We don’t think it’s worth the money though keeping in mind that some of the much cooler skins described below cost just a little more RP than this.

Vizier Malz

5) Vizier Malzahar (520 RP)

Malzahar’s Vizier skin is the best skin you can buy for him at just 520 RP. As a legacy skin, though, it’s hard to come by. It doesn’t add new particles, animations, nor sounds. Still, it does bring a very cool and regal looking re-texturing to Malzahar himself. We’re partial to the black, gold, and red colors.

4) Snow Day Malzahar (975 RP)

Malzahar’s Vizier skin is the best skin you can buy for him at just 520 RP. As a legacy skin, though, it’s hard to come by. It doesn’t add new particles, animations, nor sounds. Still, it does bring a very cool and regal looking re-texturing to Malzahar himself. We’re partial to the black, gold, and red colors.

3) Hextech Malzahar (10 Hextech Crystals)

This is one of the rare Hextech skins that you can only unlock by spending 10 Hextech crystals. Since Hextech crystals cannot be purchased and are only dropped sporadically by chests and orbs, this skin is very rare.

Hextech Malz’s skin isn’t overly flashy. With it, Malz gains a steampunk styled suit of armor with little jets that keep him floating off of the ground. His minion skins are replaced with tiny clockwork robots.

On its own, it’s a cool skin, but it probably is not worth its high hextech crystal cost. We recommend you buy our best Malzahar skin recommendation instead and save your crystals for another champion with a better Hectech skin.

2) Runner Up: Worldbreaker Malzahar (1350 RP)

Malzahar’s Worldbreaker skin is an exciting and unique, Central American themed skin. We’re guessing Mayan, but we’re no experts. The coolest part of the skin is that it isn’t just a simple historical skin. Malzahar’s minions and effects have beautiful and ominous glowing lights added. You will feel like a powerful, Mayan god in this skin.

His Worldbreaker skin also comes with some pretty cool chromas to mix up the skin if you ever get bored with the basic colors.

1) Best Malzahar Skin: Battle Boss Malzahar (1350 RP)

Malzahar’s Battle Boss skin is fantastic! This skin is a perfect blend of retro arcade with clean, sharp animations. Malzahar looks like an evil overload in his dark purple color scheme. His passive shield is a tessellated dome.

One of the best things you get out of this skin is its minions. They are simple, polygonal bots reminiscent of a 1980s arcade game. His malefic visions ability also gets a nice visual upgrade. A degrading pattern of 1s and 0s will degrade around your opponent, reminiscent of a computer virus.

During his recall animation, Malzahar creates a vortex beneath himself into which his minions crawl. It’s very well done and will get you some nice complements when you use this Malz skin. It’s also very similar to the skin’s new ult animation, where Malzahar summons an even more massive wormhole beneath his opponent’s feet, causing damage.

We really enjoy his Battle Boss skin. If you’re looking for a single, new skin to pick up for him, give this one some serious consideration. We strongly recommend it as the best Malzahar skin.
