League of Legends' newest game mode, Ultimate Spellbook, has been released as part of the Sentinels of Light event, and allows expert theory-crafters to think of the best combinations of abilities to use for their favorite champion. But, there are definitely some champions that shine above others in this game mode.

5 Best Champions to Use in League of Legends Ultimate Spellbook

This is far from a definitive list of who is the best to use, and others may even be more stronger than some of the picks chosen. However, since the "Ulternate" abilities to choose from are random, these champions are among the best in any given game.

1. Jhin

Combining Jhin with any ultimate abilities that can stun others or even help him get away from sticky situations is suited best for him. Fortunately, there are plenty of those skills to choose from and having Jhin's Curtain Call (R) to finish a kill with is a Jhin main's dream.

2. Ekko

As with Ekko, the possibilities to find someway to teleport an enemy into the fountain is on the priority for those playing him in Ultimate Spellbook. One of the common combos to use with Ekko is to teleport into lane, use Skarner's Impale (R) and use Ekko's Chronobreak (R) to immediately take them back to their fountain for a quick and easy kill. That combo alone makes Ekko a pretty solid choice in Ultimate Spellbook. However, getting Skarner's Impale is not guaranteed, but Ekko has enough power in his kit to become very slippery or just give more burst damage to this who can't handle the high amount of pressure.

3. Nocturne

Nocturne is currently a fuel for nightmares in ranked matches, and now he's here to invade those theory-crafting dreams in Ultimate Spellbook. Due to Nocturne's Paranoias (R) ultimate ability being able to close the space between him and another player almost instantly, couple this with any area of effect ability and the combos that ensue are deadly. A favorite choice is to get Amumu's Curse of the Sad Mummy (R) ultimate ability and use it as soon as Nocturne's ultimate lands on a player.

4. Yone

As Yone does not use any amount of mana, his viability in Ultimate Spellbook is actually very high. Since everyone in solo queue is a "professional" Yone player, a lot of abilities that would otherwise cost a lot of mana points are quite literally free. Combine his abilities with gap closers and now Yone is just an unstoppable killing machine. The only thing that sets Yone back from excelling in Ultimate Spellbook is the player playing him.

5. Lee Sin

In fighting games terminology, Lee Sin with ultimate abilities that can move him anywhere will just put people into a mix-up that is unblockable. It will be a blender of death for those who are in of breathing range of Lee Sin players in this game mode. Combine an Ulternate ability and follow through with Lee Sin's Dragon's Rage (R) and the possibilities for kills are endless.
