Each Summoner Spell has its use and is brought by a specific role. Here are the mostly used Summoner Spells and

  • Heal is usually brought by squishy champions like Mages or AD Carries to give them an extra health boost and spell the difference between survival and death
  • Exhaust is brought by Support champions and given to the AD Carry during the laning phase and used on the one with most damage during the late game
  • Teleport is brought by top-laners and split-pushers. Within seconds, they can traverse the entire map and can either help in team fights or push a lane
  • Flash is the most used Summoner Spell, being considered the universal Summoner Spell. It can be used for either fleeing or gap-closing an enemy
  • Ignite provides a champion an extra skill to damage their enemy champion. It is usually for champions who want to go all-in during a clash and is good with direct combat. Ignite also lowers the enemy’s healing and health regen
  • Smite is the Jungler’s Summoner spell. This can be used to easily defeat a large monster, especially during the early phase and the jungler still doesn’t have enough damage. The heal it gives also provides junglers more time to stay in  the map instead of going back to the fountain
