Ignite is a targeted summoner spell. It deals a moderate amount of true damage over 5 seconds, and reduces healing and regeneration effects by 50%.

Strategy

Throughout Season 2 and Season 3, Ignite Ignite has been a popular spell among summoners for its power in duels, affording players an extra damage spell that scales with level. It is often used in aggressive builds and strategies.

A well-placed healing reduction debuff from Ignite Ignite can severely limit the effectiveness of enemy healing items (such as health potions,) as well as healing abilities from champions such as Soraka OriginalSquare Soraka, Vladimir OriginalSquare Vladimir, and Warwick OriginalSquare Warwick.

Furthermore, Ignite Ignite's true damage pierces through armor and magic resist fully and without penalty. This makes Ignite Ignite an effective counter to mitigation-based items and abilities like Guardian Angel item Guardian Angel and Rammus OriginalSquare Rammus' Defensive Ball Curl Defensive Ball Curl.

Notes

  • This spell's damage can be increased through spells that increase damage from all sources such as Reckoning Reckoning, Diplomatic Immunity Diplomatic Immunity, and Cutthroat Cutthroat.
  • Cleanse Cleanse removes the damage over time component of Ignite Ignite, but not the healing reduction.
  • The healing debuff from Ignite Ignite does not reduce the amount of temporary health gained from shields like Barrier Barrier and Janna OriginalSquare Janna's Eye of the Storm Eye of the Storm.
  • Multiple uses of Ignite Ignite on the same target will not stack.
    • A second application of Ignite Ignite on the target will refresh the duration of its effect, but will not provide any added damage or healing reduction.
  • The healing debuff from Ignite Ignite does not stack with any other abilities that apply a healing debuff, such as Miss Fortune OriginalSquare Miss Fortune's Impure Shots Impure Shots.
  • Casting ignite does not interupt channeling spells, i.e. Malzahar OriginalSquare Malzahar's Nether Grasp Nether Grasp.

Trivia

  • The icon for Ignite Ignite shows a great resemblance to Annie OriginalSquare Annie's Pyromania Pyromania since they are both icons of a hand holding a flame.
