I've heard a few other threads mention the skill "Promote."

What is this? Is this an unused/old summoner spell? Does it belong to a champion that I've missed? Is it an item?

Thanks in advance

Promote was an old summoner ability that basically turned a normal minion into a super powerful minion.

There were massive issues with it because when stacked you could end a game in like under 10 minutes with a decent team composition because the push was almost unstoppable.

More less it was just extremely hard to balance properly.

It was an old summoner spell that was removed. It would promote a minion to be super strong vs. towers.

They removed it due to teams all picking promote and rushing middle (being near impossible to stop)

EDIT: I'm too slow :*(

Worth noting that those teams were all heavy on healing an pushing.

IE Alistar/Soraka/Sivir etc
