The Spider Queen – Elise, was originally an elegant lady from a very powerful house. Still, after a few unfortunate events, Elise has been turned into a spider-like creature by the work of a mysterious demigod. Now, Elise preys on her feast in the shadows, seducing her victims into her webs to catch them off guard for the sake of maintaining her form.
Inside the game of League of Legends, Elise is a mage assassin with the capability of transforming into two forms, Human and Spider. She also plays the role of a Jungler, where she must flank the enemy laners to give an advantage to her team.

5. Death Blossom Elise

6. Victorious Elise
- Release Date: 20-Dec-2013
- Price: Special Pricing
Dressed like a spider queen, covered in golden armor, Victorious Elise is a skin that can never be obtained at this stage of the game. It can only be awarded to players who ranked gold or higher in 2013. Although it is an infrequent skin, it’s unfortunately at the bottom of the list for bad qualities.
The character model overall is ugly compared to all other victorious skins. The only ability representing gold, which is the victorious skin signature effect, is her E. She shoots a golden cocoon that expands and wraps around her enemies, trapping them in the golden web.
Her Q is a blue toxin that does leave small blue particles upon impact. Her W summons a blue spider that explodes, creating a huge impact of blue blood. Her spider form is a giant spider, covered in golden armor over its blue skin. Her effects generate blue particles and a magical blue smoke produced after transforming.
