  • Summoner class have a lot of abilities that channel through a summon. [2]
  • Some skills pertain to what a pet has, with regards to what a summoner can do, you’re essentially playing through the summon in some respects. [2]
  • Summoners can collaborate to summon larger siege summons [2]
  1. Penultimate summoner skill [2]
  2. Large groups of summoners can create large siege golems [2]
  3. Siege summon incremental size based on number of summoners in that activity, maximum of 8, full party can fully form a giant thing. The number of summoners participating will determine its overall size, scales. [3]

  • Summon Augments can turn a Sweeping Claw attack into a teleport to target followed by a claw attack or give your summon flaming claws that combust when striking with it's claw attack. [4]

What will Necromancers be like? [5]

Because we're non-faction based we want to grant the user the ability to either do things that are "evil" or "good". There has to be a plethora of choices on the evil side for them to participate in. We’re taking a twist on the identity of necromancers. Traditionally their evil in the sense that they corrupt death or to serve some kind of necromantic lore. I view the necromancer as a master of life and death. The way I want to implement our necromancer, you can choose to be a necromancer for good or dark and twisted things. Either is viable. If you want to work with spirits that aid, you can do that. If you want to summon skeletons/zombies/undead creatures you can do that and use them for you will as well.

What Will Warlocks be like? [6]

If you are mage-summoner, you are going to be able to pull from that summoner. Being able to temporarily put a servant on the battlefield like a fire elemental instead of doing a fireball. It could deal damage over time, slow their attack speed etc.

[22:16] If I was a warrior, second class summoner, could I have a beast with me?[7]

  1. No won’t be able to summon a creature.
  2. Beast summoning comes with Summoner primary.

Will summoners get to choose the look of their summons?[8]

  1. Summoners will have some customisation over the way their summons appear.
    1. Cosmetic differences will be determined by in game choices.
      1. Class specific changes, augment archetype.
      2. Race specific.
