Ancient battles between two summoner factions symbolised with the Stag and Owl crests waged on the field known as [[Summoner's Rift]]. The war between both sides has changed the landscape and mutated the local flora and fauna.

In modern times, summoners are types of magic or non-magic users that summon minions, monsters, or structures for their use. Most summonings are done by magical means by the use of mana, or by the use of powerful artifacts. [[Bilgewater]] Serpent Callers use hollowed out pillars to mimic the screams and screeches of the denizens of the deep, summoning them to the surface or chasing them away. One such serpent was called upon during one of the recent [[Harrowing]]s to aid Bilgewater against the undying horde's onslaught.

Summoner Worlds icon
For the TFT trait, see Summoner (Teamfight Tactics)

A Summoner is an avatar that represents each player throughout their games and the other parts of their League of Legends experience. Each of these avatars are represented by a summoner name and an icon. The summoner is the persistent part of the game, as opposed to champions, which can change in every match. Each summoner has a summoner level that increases with summoner experience (not to be confused with champion experience).

LoreEdit

Ancient battles between two summoner factions symbolised with the Stag and Owl crests waged on the field known as Summoner's Rift. The war between both sides has changed the landscape and mutated the local flora and fauna. Now the battlefield is littered with the ruins of both sides and is a residence of a powerful DragonSquare Dragon and Baron NashorSquare Baron Nashor.

In modern times, summoners are types of magic or non-magic users that summon minions, monsters, or structures for their use. Most summonings are done by magical means by the use of mana, or by the use of powerful artifacts. Bilgewater Serpent Callers use hollowed out pillars to mimic the screams and screeches of the denizens of the deep, summoning them to the surface or chasing them away. One such serpent was called upon during one of the recent Harrowings to aid Bilgewater against the undying horde's onslaught.

DescriptionEdit

Summoners Cup concept

World Championship Summoner's Cup

A player in League of Legends takes on the role of a summoner, a gifted spell caster who has the power to bring forth a champion to fight as their avatar in the Fields of Justice. With all major political decisions on Valoran now decided by the outcome of the contests that take place in the battle arenas, a summoner is the key force of change on the continent. As the summoner controls the champion in combat, the summoner also influences the outcome of the match through the use of Summoner Spells and Runes. Once a match is over, the summoner gains Experience and Blue Essence. Experience points allow the summoner to gain access to new spells and champions, whilst blue essence can be used to buy new champions from the store or to be invested inside the Hextech Crafting system.

The Summoner's CodeEdit

The Summoner's Code is a list of rules and guidelines that Riot Games Inc. provides to the players to abide by when participating in competitive play. If a summoner disobeys this code they might find themselves suspended for an amount of time. Repeated and/or severe infractions will incur harsher penalties. Any player can report a summoner that has disobeyed the code in a match; if this summoner gets reported a sufficient number of times, his actions will be reviewed by Riot Games' staff and eventually punished.

Summoner ProfileEdit

Profile

Summoner Profile

The Summoner Profile page is the players personal page, which is accessible and part of the Client interface. Its primary use is to track the players game statistics, to showcase game achievements and players champions roster. It also has several customizable aesthetics features to better visually distinguish a player amidst other players (e.g. profile banners, frames, and summoner icons).

CollectionEdit

Collection

Champion collection

The Collection page is another part of the summoner profile, it is accessible and part of the Client interface. Its primary use is to track the players game inventory, what champions, rune pages, skins, spells, emotes, and item sets they have.

TriviaEdit

Summoners

A team of Institute of War summoners

  • Summoner was a colloquial term used to refer to the Player to distinguish them from the player-controlled champions. The term originates from the game's original lore, wherein the Institute of War - and its employed Summoners - acted as a supreme government over the entirely of Runeterra and its people. While players no longer exist in-universe, the term is still used out-of-universe, for example: Summoner Spells, the Summoner's Code and the Summoner's Cup.
  • The term summoner may still appear within lore, but should be interpreted descriptively.
  • As of late 2014, Riot has stated that the concept of a Summoner (as found in the lore of the game) is to be altered, Institute of War is going to be removed and thus the in-lore League of Legends is to be "Fully Relaunched" again.

Lyrics
Worlds Collide (ft. Nicki Taylor)
Do we fight to hold our heads up high,

And beat the drum to what we love?

Risk the fall, oh we have felt it all,
come crashing down from far above.

Stars arising, countless worlds colliding,
only one will take it all.

Can we bring to fall the giants,
Can we make the final call.

We are the ones,
To ignite the darkened skies.

The champions,
Of a world that we defy.

A solemn reign,
Of the few who rise up high.

And we all fight,
at the last light.

Hearing voices from afar,
join the madness when the curtain falls.

Risk it all, hold nothing back,
Seize the day, we must attack.

Stars arising, countless worlds colliding,
only one will take it all.

Can we bring to fall the giants,
Can we make the final call.

We are the ones,
To ignite the darkened skies.

The champions,
Of a world that we defy.

A solemn reign,
Of the few who rise up high.

And we all fight,
at the last light.

Can we bring to fall the giants.

We are the ones,
To ignite the darkened skies.

The champions,
Of a world that we defy.

A solemn reign,
Of the few who rise up high.

And we all fight,
at the last light.
