most importantly vs most important

I’m not sure why people seem to think but adding -ly they sound more intelligent but they don’t.

“Most importantly” and “more importantly” are only to be used in an adverbial context, which is very rare.

Most often the proper phrase is simply either “more important” or “most important”.
