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.
