Fortify was a 'non-targeted' summoner spell that buffed your turrets globally. Fortify was removed from League of Legends with the November 15th, 2011 patch V1.0.0.129.


Fortify was mainly used defensively to prevent turrets from taking damage and clearing minions faster than normally. However it was also a very effective method to punish turret divers or quickly do damage to foes that got caught by pulls and taunts like Rocket Grab Rocket Grab and Puncturing Taunt Puncturing Taunt.


  • When you use Fortify, any hits to the protected tower won't proc certain abilities that would have worked before. For example, Jax's Jax's Relentless Assault Relentless Assault, Guinsoo's Rageblade Guinsoo's Rageblade, and Master Yi's Master Yi's Double Strike Double Strike.
  • Fortify can be used while your champion is dead.
  • While fortified, a turret grants you assists and kills when it last-hits or assists in killing an enemy champion as if you were dealing the damage, and not the turret. This does not, however, apply to minion kills.
