I'm more curious as to how being unable to cast spells prevent me from using potions.


This . Spells I can understand but potions are drank being unable to cast spells prevents me from drinking to ? That only makes sense if your Gragas.

Why silence makes summoner spells unavailable. All these years it's never made sense to me. Imagine we are summoners and we tell our champions where to go and can manipulate combat using our summoner spells. If our champion gets silenced, obviously it makes sense that our champion can't use their abilities, but I don't see the logic in not letting us influence the combat by using OUR spells, as WE aren't the ones getting silenced. Thoughts?

The most probable cause I can think of is it's a coding issue and would be a hassle to separate the two.


You can interact with the Summoner's rift only through your champion, not directly, so even summoner spells are subject to silence since you cannot use your spells through a silenced champion.

Balance wise I find it better this way and lore wise it's easy to explain one or the other, so I find it fine like it is.

I thin it could stop you from drinking potion if it silenced you to the point which you cannot open your mouth anymore. But I don't think that;s the case. Maybe the silence nullify whatever potion you would drinks so the champion doesn't drink as to not waste them?

As for summoner spell, I always saw them as being casted by the champion as a medium. Meaning
Summoner --> Champion --> Summoner spell
But if silenced
Summoner --> Champion -/-> Nothing

Summoners and Champs share a link, right? When our champ gets silenced, we get silenced.

BOOM, made up lore to answer a question. But seriously, I'm pretty sure cleanse still works while silenced. You can always run that more. Just cleanse then flash and you're fine

Taco. Always poking holes in people's logic... maybe not poking as in making giant holes that came out of nowhere.

Then how are we still commanding them to do other things? Morse code? Carrier pigeon?

Hey, RiotTacoStorm, how come it says "Recruiter" under your avatar instead of your position within Riot? I understand that you received it by recommending "X" number of people to the game, but shouldn't the Riot title trump the "Recruiter" title?

I've noticed quite a few times my silence doesn't stop flash or ignite as chogath.
