Posted 30 July 2014 - 02:04 PM #1 my opinion on summoning :)

i don't find it totally useless. it can save the day :p summon host is useful which is the summoning spell i use the most ATM the Deva casts curse which is useful when you want to save sp and can summon spirits too

cant wait to get the other summoning spells

i find summon beast and summon spirit useless

weak summoning can be good for cannon fodder ;)

but i do notice that summoning can interfere with fireball, flame strike etc. as you may hit your "pets"

whats your take?

Higher level summoning spells cam summon monsters that summon monsters until the screen fills up and you have to really wait for your turn. Lower level ones are mostly useless.

I didn't use them when I played Exile.

Summoning is useful when you fight monsters that drain your spell points, like Mung Demons and Eyebeasts, cause they'll drain whoever is next to them. Even then, though, you probably don't need them if you have an advanced party. Otherwise, it's fun to summon a bunch of creatures to fight for you just to stretch out the combat.

—Vexivero, who almost never summons as well. In the Exile series, his parties usually end up becoming so overpowering that summoning is a ridiculous option. Once one acquires the spells Avatar and Antimagic Field, it is basically game over for any foe.
