Good Skin shards cost 1520 Orange essence to upgrade.
The majority of skin shards you get are worth under 200.
So you need about 8 Skin shards to unlock a good/recent skin but it takes a very long time to accumulate that many shards.
Could we not make Orange essence purchasable with event tokens like blue essence is? Or make Orange essence purchasable with RP?
(The price of the orange essence combined with the shard would be cheaper than just purchasing the skin with RP)
Just food for thought :)
