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 some 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.

All summoner spells, excluding Flash Flash, Teleport Teleport, Hexflash Hexflash, and Mark Mark / Dash Dash, can be used while under the effects of Silence icon.png cast-inhibiting crowd control, with the exceptions of Stasis icon.png stasis and Suppression icon.png suppression. The aforementioned summoner spells are also disabled while Grounded icon.png grounded or Root icon.png rooted, as they cause the caster to move.

Available summoner spells

A summoner spell's availability is based on the player's summoner level. At summoner level one, a player begins with 2 summoner spells to choose from. Then as a summoner reaches new levels, they unlock new summoner spells, up to summoner level 9.

Standard summoner spells

Summoner spell upgrades/variants

Special summoner spell upgrades or replacements can be made available when certain criteria are met.

Trivia

Summoner spells

  • Upon starting a match in Summoner's Rift icon.png Summoner's Rift, all summoner spells are placed on a 15-second cooldown.
  • In-game Summoner Spell icon tooltips always show the true cooldown, after rune and item bonuses. Cooldown display may take a few seconds to update after items have been acquired or sold.[may need confirmation for enemy summoner spells]
  • Spells are map-specific. For example, if you play ARAM on Summoner's Rift, the available spells are Summoner's Rift spells.
  • Legend of the Poro King (Howling Abyss), Odyssey: Extraction (Crash Site) and Nexus Siege (Summoner's Rift) use or did use game mode specific summoner spells.
  • In Sovereign's Domination.png Ultimate Spellbook, one of the summoner spell slots is replaced by a placeholder summoner spell that is used to grant a champion's ultimate.
  • A few summoner spells originated as alpha items, such as Teleport Teleport having roots in the items Ancient Pocket Watch Ancient Pocket Watch and Scroll of Teleportation Scroll of Teleportation.
    • This may be a borrowed gameplay design choice from DotA where powerful gameplay effects similar to summoner spells were accessible to players through items.
