Ultimate Spellbook, League of Legends' newest game mode as part of the Sentinels of Light event has made for some of the more interesting and hilarious combos that the game has ever seen so far. When trying to theory-craft which of the "Ulternate" abilities work best for a champion, it's best to choose any one of these five best ultimate abilities to use in Ultimate Spellbook.

5 Best Ultimates in League of Legends Ultimate Spellbook

Though these ultimates are among the best to use in the new game mode, they are not guaranteed to have in the randomly selected pool to choose from. However, if they do show up in the pool, do not hesitate to grab any one of these, but make sure to try and figure out what's best for the champion played.

1. Janna's Monsoon

If there are times that a player needs to get out of an unfavorable situation, Janna's Monsoon (R) ultimate ability is one of the best abilities to use at any given time. However, Monsoon isn't only limited to defensive situations. If paired with Lee Sin or a Nocturne, it could be used aggressively in order to get enemies away from the rest of their team.

2. Nocturne's Paranoia

The nightmarish ability from Nocturne gap closes from a considerable distance away. If coordinated correctly with other teammates, ganks with pretty much any champion are possible, the only downside is how close the champion will be against the enemy. But, if playing a melee champion that is a bit ahead, it really isn't a problem.

3. Skarner's Impale

Skarner himself is a champion that is dependent on team composition, as the only practical use for him is his ultimate itself. Using this with any champion that can withstand the onslaught of damage from the enemy team would the more common occurrence of Impale being used. However, there have been methods in which Ekko can use impale along with his Chronobreak (R) ultimate ability to simply send others to the fountain, which is both more fun and hilarious than a proper strategy.

4. Amumu's Curse of the Sad Mummy

Being able to use Amumu's Curse of the Sad Mummy to stun a large amount of enemies is quite powerful on its own. Combining this ability with anyone who can either get in between multiple enemies at once and then popping Curse of the Sad Mummy will turn the tides of mostly any battle, and that in itself makes it one of the better abilities to have.

5. Ahri's Spirit Rush

The viability of getting Ahri's Spirit Rush (R) ultimate ability makes it one of the best ultimates in Ultimate Spellbook alone. The possibility of closing the gap with a Nasus chasing an enemy down, or an AD carry like Samira to get even closer is too good for this game mode. On top of that, being able to just slip out of a bad fight makes Spirit Rush a "Get Out of Jail Free" card.
