Summoner spells in League of Legends Wild Rift

The only summoner spells guide you'll need.

Updated for patch 2.2.

Summoner Spells

These are assist abilities that help you in the battlefield. They are universal, meaning you can equip any of them on any champion of your choosing. Equip the spells that best suit both your champion and play-style. Most of the spells have higher cooldowns than most other champion abilities so use them at the most appropriate times or it might cost you the game. You can only choose two summoner spells at the start of each round. Cooldown reduction from items does not apply to summoner spells unless specifically mentioned so.

Heal

spells

Cooldown: 120s

Restore 80 − 360 (based on level) health and grants 30% bonus movement speed for 1 second to you and the most wounded nearby ally champion (120 second cooldown). Healing is halved for champions recently affected by Heal.

This is one of the few support spells that assist not only you but also your ally. It combos well with most supports as it can deal some good amount of healing on your squishy carry and save him from a life and death scenario with the increased mobility. Too many Heals on one team do not stack well. Avoid using it when a grievous wound is in effect unless it’s absolutely necessary, as the healing from this spell would be halved.

Barrier

spells

Cooldown: 120s

Gain a shield that absorbs 115 − 465 (based on level) damage for 2 seconds.

At first glance it might seem similar to heal but it varies. It is not of the same supportive nature as Heal, Allies do not gain a shield. But it is supportive in a sense that you can tank more for the team. Along with that, grievous wounds or other heal inhibiting abilities do not affect this. The shield only lasts for two seconds so it must be times well with the incoming burst and most incoming damage can be avoided that way. It must also be noted that the cooldown is much lower than that of Heal.

Exhaust

spells

Cooldown: 105s.

Exhausts target enemy champion, reducing their movement speed by 20% and their damage dealt by 40% for 2.5 seconds (105 second cooldown).

If used on the right opponent, it can cause devastating effects. Reducing the damage of the enemy carry by nearly half can prove to be invaluable.

Flash

spells

Cooldown: 150s

Teleport a short distance forward or towards the aimed direction.

One of the most useful and highest picked spells. It can combo well with various champion skills, can be used as an escape or a gap closer. It is both defensive and offensive in nature. Flash has the highest cooldown of any spell and rightly so. It can be invaluable to secure a kill or finish a combo, but if you are a beginner it is strongly advised that you save this as an escape skill. Not knowing what the enemy might have saved up for you might leave you without an escape if you expend it too early or to gap close. It can also be used to dodge major skill shots.

Ghost

spells

Cooldown: 90s

Gain a large burst of movement speed that decays to 25% bonus movement speed for 8 seconds. With each takedown, Ghost’s duration is extended by 6 seconds, refreshing its effects upto the original amount.

Another ability that can be used to gap close or escape. The major difference being, Ghost doesn’t teleport you across terrain. It also has much less cooldown than that of Flash and can cover a larger distance over 6 seconds than with flash.

Ignite

spells

Cooldown: 90s

Ignites target enemy champion, dealing 60 − 410 (based on level) true damage over 5 seconds and inflicting them with Grievous Wounds icon Grievous Wounds, reducing healing effects by 50%.

This spell deals true damage, meaning it ignores the defenses of the opponent. Grievous wounds reduces any and all healing the opponent receives. Ignite can also serve to deal the finishing blow to an enemy that is just out of your range and escaping.

Smite

spells

Cooldown: 10s

Deal 440 − 1000 (based on level) true damage to a large or epic monster or minion (10 second cooldown). Smiting monsters restore 70 (+ 10% maximum health) health. Slaying 4 large monsters upgrades Smite to Chilling Smite or Challenging Smite which can target enemy champions. Hunting License: Permanently earn 20% bonus experience from jungle monsters but temporarily earn 20% less.

This is a must for junglers. Wild Rift does not have jungle items, so this is the spell that announces that you will be farming in the jungle. It is highly recommended that you don’t build this on any laners because any gold you receive from minions is reduced by a huge amount. If you are a jungler, save it to last hit major objectives because it the highest burst ability you will have early game. Actual cooldown: This ability has 2 stacks. Both stacks take 35 seconds to fill each. The stacks cannot be used simultaneously but with a 10 second cooldown between the two.

Spell Differences

Note: These spell differences are made in comparison to spells in League of Legends.

  • Recall channels over 6 seconds instead of 8.
  • Clarity, Cleanse Cleanse, Hexflash Hexflash, and Mark Mark / Dash Dash do not exist.
  • Teleport is no longer a summoner spell, which has been made into an enchantment/item active.
