Ignite is a targeted summoner spell. It deals a good amount of true damage over 5 seconds, and reduces healing and regeneration effects by 60%. The amount of damage dealt changes per level.

Formula: 50 + (20 × level)


Ignite is a common spell which is powerful in duels as it gives you an extra damage spell that scales with levels. It is often used to get first blood because combined with the ignite mastery which gives more AP and AD when it's on cooldown, it is very powerful. It is also to counter champions with a good amount of self heal like VladimirSquare.pngVladimir, WarwickSquare.pngWarwick, FiddlesticksSquare.pngFiddlesticks, aswell as AatroxSquare.pngAatrox.


  • This spell's damage can be increased through spells that increase damage from all sources such as Diplomatic Immunity, Torment, and Cutthroat.
  • Cleanse removes the damage over time component of Ignite, but not the healing reduction.
  • The healing debuff from Ignite does not stack with other abilities that apply a healing debuff, such as KatarinaSquare.pngKatarina's Death Lotus.
  • Using two Ignites on a single enemy champion will not stack. Instead they will refresh.
  • Casting ignite does not interrupt channeling spells, such as MalzaharSquare.pngMalzahar's ultimate.
  • This spell can not effect enemy minions.


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

Patch History[]

Patch 9.2

Damage and cooldown decreased.

Ignite's damage nerf should come as no surprise: it's been flooding summoner spell choices across multiple lanes. The cooldown buff may look confusing, but shifting power out of Ignite's burn into its uptime lets us swing harder on damage without killing the spell entirely.

COOLDOWN : [210] 180 seconds
DAMAGE : [80-505]

Damage increased.

For a while now, Heal and Teleport have been outclassing Ignite mid lane, especially in pro play. To increase diversity in Summoner spells, we're pushing a bit more power into Ignite.

DAMAGE : [70-410] 80-505
