Summoner Spells for League of Legends Milio

Now that we have covered League of Legends' new Champion, Milios move sets, let's take a look into the Summoner Spells to utilize when playing this support character.

Milio in LoL is a chameleon of sorts, able to adapt any summoner spell. His flexibility regarding spells is due to his move sets, which are beaming with utilities. We have compiled a list of the spells and the best ways to use them when using Milio.


Unless you're using a high-mobility-based champion (which this League of Legends new Champion is not), Flash is an essential spell. It can be used to help avoid engagement in team fights or can assist in providing the final blow to opponents. Since Milio doesn't rely heavily on

high mobility, make sure Flash is on the cards in battle.


If your ADC uses Ignite, Heal is heavily recommended. Using Heal will give some additional sustenance in battle to both yourself and ADC.


When facing someone with heal-based support, such as Soraka, Ignite can be a literal lifesaver for Milio in League. The burns sustained from the use of Ignite cut the healings received by half.


When taking on an ADC with high mobility or that deals high damage without true damage, Exhaust can be rather beneficial. This spell reduces the damage dealt by a target, providing you with the opportunity to keep the battle going.


If the opposing team has heavy CC threats, Cleanse can be an excellent help. This spell removes all disables, excluding Airborne Nearsighted and Suppression. It also has the same effect on summoner spell rebuffs affecting your Champion, all except Mark.

This spell also grants 65% tenacity for 3 seconds.

How To Play League of Legends New Champion Milio?

We've touched on this new LoL champion's move sets and summoner spells, so now let's take a look at how to use them in-game and when.

The Early Stages

In the beginning, stick with ADC, as Milio is not tanky. Because of this, roaming through other lines isn't recommended the way it is with Leona or Nautilus. Focus on leveling your E before anything else so that you can shield your ADC as quickly as possible.

If you're taken down (ganked), use your Q to knock the opposing jungler back. This should give you enough time to run or reposition yourself for battle.

If your ADC is getting CC'd, use your R, and if needed, you can boostADC’s movement speed with E.

The Midway Mark

At this stage, your ADC might want to head to the other lanes; if so, you can follow. Your main priority is getting your ADC to a powerful state as quickly as possible.

If they're still standing, you're doing good.

End Game

At this point, you should be able to leave your ADC, provided you are positive they're not vulnerable. Remember, Milio can't go it alone, so stick close to a champion that's beneficial to the battle. You can work with them to take your opponent down.
