The disenchantment value for skin shards are painfully inconsistent and low. It's so bad that it's a complete ripoff to disenchant any skin higher than epic tier.
520 RP Skins; disenchant for 104 orange essence. (220 Orange essence to activate) - approximately 47% face value.

I'm sorry but to me that's a total ripoff. It's almost like the system is punishing you for disenchanting epic+ skins, and if you already own those skins, it really sucks. I don't have information on how much you get for mystic skins, but based on the data above, I'm assuming not much. In my own opinion, I think the value is way to low.
For example, I already have [Elementalist Lux](https://imgur.com/9Ijtudr) and I have her skin shard in loot right now. To me, disenchanting that skin for a lousy 650 essence just isn't worth it. I'd honestly re-roll that skin, considering you'd "might" get more in return by re-rolling her with 2 other skins... Yeah... re-rolling an ultimate skin hurts my soul.
**Side note:** For premium loot boxes, if you win a permanent skin, it doesn't give you the choice to disenchant them for orange essence. If you don't have the champion however, you are allowed to disenchant that skin for orange essence. I recommend giving that option to disenchant weather you have the champion or not.
Well this is the end of my little rant. Thanks for taking the time reading, see you on the rift!
