Surge was a 'non-targeted' Summoner spell available in all game modes. As part of the season three overhaul, this summoner spell was removed. Its functionality was added in-part to Guinsoo's Rageblade item Guinsoo's Rageblade. In addition, Maw of Malmortius item Maw of Malmortius's Lifegrip passive uses Surge's icon while in effect.

Strategy

  • It was a highly efficient tool for all AP characters pushing turrets as, unlike towards any other targets, if 40% of your AP is greater than your AD bonus your champion is going to add that amount to the base damage of the autoattack instead of the bonus attack damage. The bonus attack speed helps significantly, as well.
  • If used prior to abilities which have a longer duration than Surge itself, those abilities will retain the enhanced ability power from Surge even after it has expired. Some examples include HeimerdingerSquare Heimerdinger's H-28G Evolution Turret H-28G Evolution Turret, TeemoSquare Teemo's Noxious Trap Noxious Trap, MaokaiSquare Maokai's Sapling Toss Sapling Toss, etc.

Notes

  • The spell increases the size of the character model of your champion.
  • This spell can not increase your attack speed over the set cap of 2.5.
