Change Your Spells During Game Using a Rune
If you are interested in changing summoner spells during the game because you are not sure which spell to use or you would like to apply a more versatile style of play, then you can use an amazing rune from the inspiration branch: The Unsealed Spellbook.
Unsealed Spellbook allows you to quickly swap your summoner spell for another randomly. However, you must be very careful, because you may need to use a particular spell and The Unsealed Spellbook may give you a spell you don't need.
The most important thing about Unsealed Spellbook rune, is that you should practice your game multiple times to perfect it and get used to using summoner spells based on your requirements.
In some cases you may need the true damage of the ignite or the movement speed of the ghost spell and not have it on hand. So be very careful when using this rune to change your summoner spell!
On the other hand, not all champions in League of Legends work in the same way with this rune, some of the champions that can use this rune and take advantage of its utility are: Ryze, Cassiopeia, Zed, Sion and Hecarim. So it's something to keep in mind when using this rune to change your summoner spell.
