Summoner Spells

For champion spells, see champion ability

Summoner Spells are abilities that players can use for their champions on the Fields of Justice.

They are chosen in Champion Select before the start of the game. Each player is allowed two summoner spells chosen from a list. Summoner spells can be used in game to aid a player’s champion in various ways as each spell has a unique effect. Some summoner spells increase in effectiveness relative to your champion's level, but many provide the same effect at champion level 1 as they do at champion level 18. They do not have any cost other than their cooldown.

Unlocking and Cooldowns

The number of spells that are available to a player are determined by their summoner level. At summoner level one, a player begins with 4 spells to choose from. Then as a summoner reaches new levels, he/she will unlock new spells up to level 10.

  • The table below shows what summoner level unlocks which spell(s), the description of the spell, their cooldown, and their range.

Spells and Champion Levels

During combat the spells Barrier Barrier, Heal Heal, Ignite Ignite, Mark Mark, and Smite Smite gain power with champion level. The other spells have the same power throughout the entire battle. While in combat the spells are bound by the same rules as the champion skills, however, Flash Flash and Teleport Teleport are the only summoner spells that cannot be used while silenced or stunned.

Reducing Spell Cooldowns

There are three ways to reduce the cooldown of summoner spells.

The 15 second cooldown of Smite Smite is not affected Cosmic Insight rune Cosmic Insight, but the rune does affect the rate at which Smite Smite charges are generated.

Summoner spell cooldown reduction is (currently) always additive:

Spells and Game Modes

Currently there are two permanent game modes in League of Legends: Classic (Summoner's Rift and Twisted Treeline) and ARAM and several Rotating Game Modes.

Due to the different characteristics of each game mode, some summoner spells are excluded from a mode while other spells are available specifically for a particular mode. And there are also common summoner spells which are available in all modes. The following table shows the spell availability for each map:

Trivia

  • In-game Summoner Spell icon tooltips always show the true cooldown, after mastery and item bonuses. Cooldown display may take a few seconds to update after items have been acquired or sold.[may need confirmation for enemy summoner spells]
  • Spells are map-specific. For example, if you play ARAM on Summoner's Rift, the available spells are Summoner's Rift spells.
  • Revive Revive (removed) had an in-game tooltip error where it said it had a 510-second cooldown instead of 540.
  • Promote Promote was previously removed because it was too strong, but it was since balanced and made available in all game modes until it was again removed for Season 3. The active effect returned as an item.
  • Mark Mark / Mark Dash was inspired by Poro Toss Poro Toss / ProfileIcon0749 INCOMING PORO! Poro Dash from the Legend of the Poro King featured game mode.
