I need a little advice.

Recommended Posts

Ok so after my 56th reset (this ones final final FINAL) I have decided that I have the money and the goods, so I ought to work on my summoning. The problem here is that I have NO idea what kind of PP spread I should have. I know I need some EMU to carry the items, but I also need will.... Whats a good PP spread for a budding young summoner? I do plan to focus on summoning mostly (its really the only thing thats super fun to me) so im not too worried about being pvp combat effective.

As you are not interested in pvp - I am guessing that you are not intending to use summoning for PK - so merely as a skill to level.

 

Given that - for the low levels - all you really need is the animal nexus to summon the creature and a bit of emu.

Until you start mixing stones - the more mana you have the better - and buy a COM and conj cape.

 

Getting hold of the ingredients can be difficult - especially at the lower levels - so if you see a snake/fox kill them! Wherever you can summon the creature and have it kill more - ie summon snakes in Naralik and collect he skins. Boar are a good summon to use - as then only need bones/meat (no fur/skin).

 

At lower levels - the exp bonus (and mana) from will helps but as you progress to stones - it is less relevant.

 

Once you get to the level for stones - simply increase your emu as fast as you can - and then haul ingredients to the gypsum and mix there. Most people move over to mixing stones below the required level even with pots - as there is at least some return on the gc -given that normal summoning is just a total gc loss.

Ok so you get phy and coord for EMU just to advance faster.

But what when you are interested in PK?

More will/reasoning for strong heal summoned? I understand that a mage with smite summoned can mess things up, so you heal summoned against that. By the way, how much can you heal with your rationality and magic level?

 

Or maybe more vitality/instinct to make summons more powerful + chance for extra creature?

 

I thought I'll go with mage/summoner (got 16 rationality so far), stand aside and heal them. But it's a little harder at gypsum with low emu... nvm, can hire a mule some day :)

No idea what I cast heal summoned for - I don't even think I have the relevant sigils.

 

However for the use in PK - from what I can imagine.

The special effects of the tiger - to cut through MI and the bears to mana burn would make them cost effective and useful. Not sure how long they would live so would be a mass stone fight - pointless to heal.

 

As for the high level summons - 8 acw are extremely effective - and lethal if you are high level. The chance of a 9th is kind of pointless. As for smite summoned I hear it is effective and kills summons quickly in the hands of a mage - but if the person is not expecting 8 ACW to be dumped on them its unlikely that they will be able to cast the spell in time.
