The Summoner Database CompilationFollow

#1 Jun 22 2006 at 4:50 PM Rating: Excellent
***Introduction***
I am SirLavitz, on the Valefor Server. Most may know me on this Forum, from my current Sticky, Summoner Guides and Useful Links. I wanted to create the ultimate Database for all Information, on Summoner. I tried that with the Sticky... but it was just to much for a single thread, on top of the 40+ Useful Links already there.

So, here you are fellow Summoners. This is the compilation, The Summoner Database Compilation. All the information you find in this Guide, came from a few places:
*) My own tests and personal Experiences. Much of this will be in sections like the "Informational Leveling Guide", and "Unlocking the Job, Summoner". I also put together the Merit Charts for us to view.
*) Tests and Results from others. Much of this will be found in sections like "Mathematics for Summoners".
*) And also, From Threads and Guides that others make. This is like the "Avatar/Elemental Perpetuation Chart", that was created by another.

*Unlocking the Job, Summoner*
***Preparation:To gain the Quest to unlock this job, you must first achieve Level 30 with another job. You are going to want the White Mage leveled some, because this will be your main Subjob, 95% of the time during your Summoner Career. An ideal plan, would be to Level WHM to 30, unlock Summoner, and so on.

Once you have achieved your Level 30, you must find yourself a Carbuncle's Ruby. This Ruby, is dropped off of Leech mobs, in many places. The most common places to find this, would be in the Maze of Shakrami, Qufim, and Buburimu Peninsula. You are going to want atleast one LVL 50+ friend, to help you with this, depending on where you go for the Ruby. Also, the "Treaure Hunter" Job Trait, is extremely desirable for this, because of the very poor drop rates on the Ruby. ***

Now that you have obtained Level 30, and also your Carbuncle's Ruby, you can start the actual Quest for unlocking the job, Summoner.

In Windurst Walls, go into the House of the Hero. Speak with "Ajido-Marujido". He will tell you some stuff now.

Now, your new goal, is to obtain the *7* Weather Elementals. These can be found and obtained, if you enter a particular zone which has a certain weather active. If done right, you will receive a Cut Scene. Here are some common Areas to find your Elementals --
Red/Heat-Valkurm Dunes, Rolanberry Fields, Altepa Deserts, Meriphatud Moutains, Yhoator Jungle. The most common times to find this, is around Noon, game time.
Orange/Clear Skies-Almost anywhere
Yellow/Sand-Valkurm Dunes, Tahrongi Canyon, Konschat Highlands
Green/Wind-Tahrongi Canyon, Mhaura, La Theine Plateau
Indigo/Ice-Xarcabard, Beaucedine Glacier
Blue/Rain- La Theine, Pashhow Marshlands, Rolanberry, Buburimu

*Important Notes*
----Make sure you have your Carbuncle's Ruby in your inventory, at all times. This item is needed, when you are trying to obtain your Weathers.
----Also, make sure to write down which Weather Patterns you obtain. This is very crucial, if you do not do all 7 Patterns in one sitting.


Once all *7* Weather Patterns are obtained, head on over to La Theine Plateau. You will find a bunch of large rocks, ( Looks almost like Stonehenge kinda...), over near G-6. There will be a point here, ???. Trade your Ruby, to this point. You will receive a nice long CutScene, with our favorite Blue-Furry Avatar, Carbuncle.

{Congratulations!} You have now unlocked the Job, Summoner. You will start out, with only one summon though. But don't worry, his name is Carbuncle. He will be your new best friend for some time.
Once you have unlocked SMN, if you have a 60+ Job, then you can fight the 60+ Primes, to obtain Avatars this way. There are Level 20 Solo Battles you can do as a SMN also though, to obtain your Avatars.

Carbuncle and You
Upon starting out with your brand new shiny job, Summoner, you will be eager to play with Carbuncle. However, it may not be the most "MP-efficient", during your Solo periods early on. A suggested path, may be that for you to completely solo, ( No Carbuncle usage) to Level 5. By Level 5 on, I would use Carbuncle a little more. MP can be a little hard to come by at this level, even for Taru-tarus.
Get to understand your Carbuncle more during your soloing time. Experiment around using his abilities, and how his dmg compares to yours, etc. Learn how hate compares between you two.
Learn to befriend Carbuncle, because he is going to be the cheapest Avatar you will have access to, not to mention he learns some nice abilities down the road.

What is this Summoning Magic Skill I have?
Sometimes, when you summon an Avatar, you may see some skillup in this Magic Skill of yours. This magic skill, does 2 things-
1.)Reduces Spell Interruption Rate when Summoning
2.)Reduces Spell recasting Timers for Elemental Spirits
Number 1., can be a little beneficial to you soon, at Level 20. When you are in the 10-20 Level Range, and LFG, I would do 1 of 2 things-
*) Be soloing for Experience
*) Be Skilling up this Magic Skill


***Informational Leveling Guide***


Levels 10-20
During this time, you may be anxious to hit up actual 6-man Experience Parties. By doing this, there are pros and cons though.
Pros
- You can learn more about your Role in Parties
- You can see how your Carbuncle does against VT-IT Mobs
Cons
- You only have access to Cure1, making it hard to main heal. As long as you have a Whm or Rdm in the party, both of you should be able to cover healing though.
- During these "low levels", often "less smarter" players will party with you. In other words, you WILL have some bad parties early on.
- You do not learn as much, as you would with just you 1 on 1 with Carbuncle.

My Suggestion for this Leveling period:
- Try to Solo some, and Party some. This way, you can learn some about both styles of play.
- You can easily solo to 12-15. Around 13-16, a normal 6-man Party may be good, because Jobs are getting a little better ( Abilities and new Equipment is available for most, at about 15 )
- At about 16-20, you could easily solo Worms, over in the Maze of Shakrami, for pretty good experience.
- Another option for EXP, would be a Duo/Trio in the Maze of Shakrami, at about Level 12-15. Jobs to Duo/Trio with, should be Mages or Rangers.



Level 20 - The Test
***Background Info: You can now obtain the other Avatars, by beating them in a fight with Carbuncle. You cannot get Fenrir and Diabolos this way.

You can obtain a quest, for the Fight, in the correlating City to the Avatar ( IE: Ifrit/Kazham,Shiva/Sandoria , Titan/Bastok , etc. )

The Fights really are not that hard and complicated, but they ARE lengthy to explain everything. Because of this, I am not going to go into details about the actual fight, in this Guide.
For an actual Level 20 Avatar Fight Guide, Click here
I will however, explain the part of Fame for these quests.***

***Fame Preparation: Ok, so you need atleast Level 2 Fame, in the correlating City. Don't worry, this is pretty easy.

Sandoria, Bastok, Rabao - There is a very easy quest, that raises fame in these 3 places, at the same time.
Only the Best, is the quest.
I personally, traded TWENTY stacks of Boyahda Moss. I lost 2.2k gil per stack traded, but I got about Level 7 Fame+ in the Cities, as well as high Jeuno Fame.

Kazham, Mhaura - This wasnt to bad either. These 2 City's fame, was based around Windurst Fame. I do now know exactly how much you need to do for Level 2 Fame, but here is about what I had done-
*) Subjob Quest in Mhaura
*) Bastore Sardine in Windurst Waters about 10 times
*) Cornette Quest in Windurst Walls about 10 times
*) Windurst was my home nation, so I don't know if Rank Missions affected it or not.

That was all I had done, and it got me the quests for Ramuh in Mhaura and Ifrit in Kazham.

Norg - Norg fame is probably the trickiest. Here is what I did -
*) Unlocked Samurai Job, as well as Ninja Job
*) Did Yagudo Necklace Quest about 15-20 times in Windurst Woods. If I remember right, the Rice Ball price in Jeuno needs to be at the most, 168 gil each. That should mean you have atleast Level 2 Norg/Tenshodo Fame.



Levels 20-40
Hopefully, now you have all of your Avatars ( Excluding Diabolos and Fenrir. If you have them, great. If not, don't worry, soon it will be your time. ). With access to so many more Avatars now, you will probably be anxious to try them all out. Also at this time, is alot of really good and new Equipment.

***Qufim Island: From Levels 20-25, you will most likely spend your Leveling here. There is the Diving Beetle Camp in Sauromugue Champaign, but not many go there.

In Qufim, you will find that Ramuh's Thunderspark Bloodpact, is extremely damaging. And when Magic Bursted, it will do wonders. This will probably be one of your top DD Pacts for some amount of time as well. At this time, if your Party asks you to MB the Skillchain, and its not a Thunder SC, bust out the correlating Avatar for it. The Avatars' TierII Spells, will MB nicely. They will perform well for you, up until about Level 30. At that time, The Tier II Spells, will just be weaker and weaker with higher Mobs. Stick to ThunderSpark, Double Punch, and Tail Whip for DD BloodPacts for a while now.

Also, at Level 22SMN/WHM11, you will obtain the spell Cure2. This will help you become a more efficient Healer, in that it has 3 times the power of Cure1. You will probably be asked to cover the "Healer" role more often, because of this.

Because Qufim is just outside of Port Jeuno, preparation for going out for Experience Leveling sessions, is rather minimal. ***

***Preparation:I highly recommend you finishing your Trial Avatar Fights before coming here. Having an arsenal of expanded Avatar choice, is great to enjoy.

At Level 20, the Summoner has the option of Equipping a new Hand piece, Carbuncle's Mitts. Do not overlook this. See the "Equipping Your Summoner" section below, for more information. ***

Level 40-50
In these Levels, leveling should be fairly easy. Melee Jobs are getting access to much more DD Equipment, allowing even more Damage to be dealt by them. Monsters at this Range did not undergo a massive boost in power, compared to the 30's.

At 42, You will get the spell Cure3. You can efficiently Main Heal now, given that you are subbing WhiteMage, should you choose to do so.

During this Range, you will also be learning more BloodPacts. One extremely useful one, is Titan's EarthenWard. It gives Stoneskin, to every party member within range. With Ninja Tanks, this will aid them greatly.


Level 50+
During your Career 50+, many things may change for you. At 51, you gain access to the Elemental Staves, and also possibly a Free Carbuncle.

Also, 50+ can offer you different things depending on Subjob. /WhiteMage offers you Auto-Regen. /Bard will give you the song Mage's Ballad ( Which gives you 1 MP per 3 seconds).

Your Role in a Party, may change alot during these levels. I will now give brief descriptions of possible various roles you may encounter.

*[white]Main Healing Role*[/yellow]
With this Role asked of you, your Job will be to keep everyone alive. You will be subbing /WHM, and will/should be making use of Cures, Regen, Protectra/Shellra, and sometimes Bar-spells.

During this time, if you are not very crunched for MP, you could add in something else...
If you do have Carbuncle Mitts, and the Light Staff, you have a Free Carbuncle for use. You could leave your Carbuncle out to melee the Mob, to add a little damage. If you have extra MP, then making use of his Healing RubyII, and Meteorite BloodPacts is a nice addition.

You just have to remember here, if you are making use of your Free Carbuncle, then while he is out, you will not be receiving your 1 MP per 3 seconds. That is actually making Carbuncle free, than 1 MP per 3 seconds perpetuation cost.





*Equipping Your Summoner*
This Equipment section of the Guide, will be more of a *Reference* to special or note-worthy pieces of Equipment. It will *Not* be an actual Summoner Equipment Guide. Also, it will be in the chronological order of Level that it can be Equipped. All Bold/Colored Equipment titles, are Links to more information regarding them. ~ Thanks


If you are looking for an actual Summoner Equipment Guide, then use this Link:
Amri's Guide to SMN Equipment ( 1-50 )
This Guide is very nicely formatted, as well as offering Links to items, and also useful information the whole way.




Carbuncle Mitts : MP+14 Carbuncle Perpetuation halved rounded up

What makes this Item just so good, is the -Perpetuation for Carbuncle. Perp Cost / 2 rounded up, is awesome. This Rare/Ex Item is essential to getting to a *FREE* Carbuncle. Obtaining this item is a challenge though. For a nice extensive Guide on how to Obtain these, please refer to this Link:
Guide- So you want Carbuncle Mitts?

Tamas Ring : MP +15~30 Intelligence +2~5 Mind +2~5 Enmity -3

This ring is obtained when you have completed your CoP missions. You have a choice of this Ring, or 2 other Rings. This one is really geared for Mage Jobs, while the other 2 have other uses. If you got a different Ring, that is ok. There are other Ring choices for Summoner, just please note this one offers a couple useful stats to the Summoner.

Austere Robe : Avatar Perp. Cost -1 BloodPact Timer - 3

The Austere Robe is great for Summoner. -1 Perpetuation alone is great, and the -3 seconds off the BloodPact Timer is nice to have sometimes. There is also the Austere Hat, and Austere Cuffs. When combined, these 3 pieces give you a whopping -1 Perp Cost, and -6 seconds off the BP Timer, not to mention some Summoning Magic Skill+ in there. Despite the Cuffs being pretty nice, Carbuncle Mitts will almost always be a better piece to use. If you are using other Avatars, then the 1 MP difference and -1 second off BP Timer is there, on the Cuffs though.

Level 51- Elemental Staves
Each Staff, has an element. Their names, are as follow:
Fire Staff, Ice Staff, Wind Staff, etc etc.

Most of these Staves are quite cheap these days, with the most expensive ones being still under 500k. Despite that, you are going to WANT all of them. There are 8 in all, including Dark and Light Staves.

The "hidden effects" when these are equipped on you, are awesome for Summoner. If you have an Ice Staff equipped with Shiva out, then your normal Perpetuation cost for her, will be reduced by 2. This goes for each of the Avatars/Corresponding Elemental Staff.

The HQ versions of these Staves, will cost a pretty penny on most servers. These Staves will reduce the corresponding Avatar's Perpetuation Cost by 3 though.

Evoker's Spats : MP+15 - Evasion Skill+10 - Enhances Avatar's Accuracy - Enmity-2

These are your Artifact Legs, equippable at Level 52. These are one of your better AF pieces as well. They offer most of what you want, except +hMP. The "Enhances avatar Accuracy" is very very nice to have also. I highly recommend you not putting off obtaining your AF, simply because of this piece. Make use of it well.

Evoker's Pigaches : MP+15 - AGI+5 - Enmity-2 - Enhances Avatar Evasion

These are your Artifact Feet. These are pretty good, for solo and Party. They offer MP+ and Enmity-, which is always welcome.

When you are Soloing, and your Avatar is tanking ( hopefully... ), these boost their Evasion some, allowing them to survive longer for you. Your Artifact Legs and Feet both are pretty useful to you, so be sure to make use of them !

Vermillion Cloak : MP+10/1% - Evasion-10 - Adds Refresh Effect

Ahh, the Vermy Cloak. What makes this piece so pricy, and nice to have, is the "Refresh" part. You already have {Auto-Refresh}, and with this piece.... you will be getting +2 MP per 3 seconds. Whats great about this, is that you can still put Juice/Ballads/Refresh Spell on you if you have the Jobs/Items with you. Just having a Bard or RDM with you in the Party, will allow you to be getting +3-5 MP per 3 seconds.

Evoker's Ring : MP+25 - SMN Magic Skill+10 - Avatar Perpetuation Cost-1

This Ring is great, mainly for the -1 Perpetuation Cost. It really does add up over time. This Ring is obtained by Quest: Mama Mia

Yinyang Robe : MP+25 - Adds "Refresh" Effect - BP Timer-5 - Avatar Enmity+5

This is probably one of the best Summoner Body Pieces in the Game. However... it is dropped from an NM, Shikigami Weapon. This NM's respawn time is at 21 Hours, with a Drop rate hovering at 50% or so. Use the Link's information for more about claiming it.

Summoner's Bracers : MP+25 - SMN Magic Skill+10 - BP Timer-2 - Enhances Avatar Accuracy

These are your AFv2 Hands, obtained from Dynamis - Bastok. Because these enhance Avatar Accuracy more, they prove very handy. These are also great when paired with AF Legs, simply for even more Accuracy.

Summoner's Pigaches : MP+20 - VIT+3 - BP Timer-2 - Enhances Avatar Attack

These are your AFv2 Feet, obtained from Dynamis - Sand'Oria. These are yet another great boost to your Avatars, for the increased Attack Power for them.

Summoner's Doublet : MP+20 - BP Timer-3 - +3% Avatar Critical Hit Rate - Depending on Day: Avatar Perpetuation Cost-3

This is your AFv2 Body. It is obtained from Dynamis - Beaucedine. It has some very useful stats, but not exactly easy to obtain. Never-the-less, a very note-worthy piece of Equipment.

Avatar/Elemental Perpetuation Costs

This does not take into account auto-refresh or any -perpetuation/refresh equipment. Perpetuation costs (including auto-refresh and/or -perpetuation) may not be below 0. Only by equipping refresh equipment (such as Vermillion Cloak) can you recover MP while having an avatar out.

Carbuncle Mitts has a hidden effect of giving Carbuncle: -50% Perpetuation Cost (rounded up). This -Perpetuation is considered before any other -Perpetuation equipment.

Thank you Jeryhn, for the work of this information. His OP Thread, can be found at this Link:
Original BloodPact Info Compilation Thread


Notes on BloodPact Mathematics:
Tests and experiments have given us this knowledge. This is the most accurate information we currently have. If you think otherwise, or have tested other things, please feel free to share with us. More knowledge is always welcomed.


For more Useful Links and Guides, please refer to this Link:
Sticky: Summoner Guides and Useful Links


Because Leveling, and what your Roles are, it is an extremely controversial and complex time. Because of this, I am having trouble finishing the "Informational Leveling Guide" section. I want it to not be controversial, or for some to be unhappy with it.


I am still constantly making minor adjustments, and updates/edits. Formatting is changing little by little it seems, to be visually nicer.

Soon, hopefully, a new large section will be added in. It will be a section showing when your Avatars get which BloodPacts, and also descriptions of each one.



I hope you find this Database Thread to be useful. Whether you like it or not, if you posted any kind of feedback, such as suggestions, comments, questions, etc, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you fellow Summoners :)

Pretty nice compilation. I'll probably run over and request a sticky for it since it compliments the current one nicely.

One flaw I saw in it was dealing with the weathers on the ruby. Your mission Violet/Purple/Lightning which is pretty easy to get in the Highlands and Jugner forest.

Not too bad at all SirLavitz

Why does the list even have Nimbus Doublet in it? It is roughly 1/21 as useful as Austere robe. It may be practicly free, but then again, so is wearing your starting RSE and the difference is basicly 1 MP per tick on light spirit.

Atleast I'd figure Summoners Horn would be much more worthy of being in the equipment list than Nimbus Doublet.

It is a little early to write this though, since there is *hopefully* some major changes dropping by during the summer.

Well.... I was trying to list almost all of the -perpetuation cost gear, and this had -1 Perp for Light Spirit. Seemed semi useful, plus it has a cool name!

Thank you very much for this suggestion. I will be sure to work that into the Equip section.

Wow... I don't.... really know for sure. I bet though, you would get a message like this...
"Cannot perform action in this Area", or something along those lines. I dunno, it would be really interesting though, if you actually COULD use your NPC in the Fights.

lol
I'll try it out when I get in there and let you know. It would certainly make it a bit easier.
I de-leveled yesterday. /cry
Really need to get stuck in with it.
I'm subbing whm atm, but I've seen a lvl 74 smn/nin, dual wield on wands looks cool! But I know there would be no point in doing that combo until quite high lvl. I've also thought about maybe subbing rdm at higher lvls to get the en- spells to deal more damage. I'm not intending to start another debate on it, all I'm doing is posting my thoughts. I've been reading all the other threads on it and I know it ticks ppl off. I just want to experiment with different stuff and see what works for me in what situations. Please don't flame me. ^^

Well... The higher you get, the weaker /Rdm's En-spells are going to be. Meaning.... The En-Spell damage on your Wands or staff, or Dagger, is going to be extremely weak... Less than 5 damage extra maybe. Honestly, /Warrior or /Dark Knight, would give you better melee damage, than En-Spells.

The En-Spells are only decent for RedMages, partly because it is their main job Skill, thus is not gimped when you are /Rdm. Also, there is some Equip to enhance this, which some may use.

Good point Sir Lavitz. I didn't think about that bit. You say subbing war or drk would give me more melee damage. What about pld? Melee damage, and an MP boost, and cure spells. Just a thought.

Yeah, I got some feeback for you.
Maybe it's a good idea to give the level at which you could use each Blood Pact.
That way, SMN have something to look forward to (almost) each level. I know there's a really nice "Power by Level" thingy on www.summoner.info, but since you are doing a major database complilation, you might as well add that too.

Also, I'm nearing level 50 (47 at the moment), so I'm looking forward to the 50+ levelling guide :D.

EDIT: I just read your notes about the levelling guide 50+. (Hmmm), I'm not really certain what you mean with controversial.. I'm not really aware of an debate doing on about what role a SMN should have level 50+. I haven't really looked into it, assuming it would be more or less like the previous levels. Is there any particular thread on these boards that I should read to make this more clear?

/War and /Drk offer Job Traits of Attack+. They also both have Job Abilities that boost melee damage.

/PLD offers nothing to increase your melee damage.

Maybe it's a good idea to give the level at which you could use each Blood Pact.
That way, SMN have something to look forward to (almost) each level. I know there's a really nice "Power by Level" thingy on www.summoner.info, but since you are doing a major database complilation, you might as well add that too.

Yea, I can do that. I could get it onto the Guide in about 10 minutes maybe, just need to talk to someone first.

Also, I'm nearing level 50 (47 at the moment), so I'm looking forward to the 50+ levelling guide :D.

EDIT: I just read your notes about the levelling guide 50+. (Hmmm), I'm not really certain what you mean with controversial.. I'm not really aware of an debate doing on about what role a SMN should have level 50+. I haven't really looked into it, assuming it would be more or less like the previous levels. Is there any particular thread on these boards that I should read to make this more clear

Well, I been thinking how to word this section, because so many people debate over main healing, DD, support, etc etc.

I may just break it down, to fully explain how your role is if you do DD, or main healing, or Support. I may try that.

What do you think about smn/cor?

I know people advocate smn/brd because it can enhance the party, and also give refresh effect at lvl 25 with Mages Ballad.

With cor, you can have Healers Roll at lvl 20, I know its not a refresh effect, but it heals more mp whilst resting, which would be useful for us and we would also get it at lvl 40 smn/cor as opposed to lvl 50 smn/brd. Cor also has other party enhancing abilities as well.

Also, cor have Puppet Roll at 23, and Beast Roll at 34, both of which would be beneficial to our avatars, and it would make it more worthwhile to have them out meleeing.

Well...
SMN/COR... It really has not been played around with to much.

I am still very unsure of how /COR's Rolls will be, compared to the Main Job COR's Rolls. It could very weel be similar to Bard songs, and it could also be different in that there are not items that enhance the Rolls.

There was a discussion thread a while back, it should be on Page 2 or 3, it was like... Support Summoner Role or something like that. There was a thread that was just talking about Support Summoners, started by Darthquixote.

And, just more on the SMN/COR...

I still am also VERY "un-enlightened" on some of the Rolls/Songs from the Job(s). Meaning, I am still unsure of most of the mechanics when it comes to a Job using both of them.

The link to the guide for equipment 1-50 needs to be removed, since the original poster has decided to pack up his ball and go home.

I have a question...

I've been looking and looking, but have yet to see any guides to Soloing my SUM. I'd like to know where to go and what to fight when those party invites dry up. Any advise or links I should know about?

Sorry to the viewers, I have not been on Allakhazam lately too much.

I will try to work on some updates though, in the next week or so.

Not sure if it was mentioned, but the smn equipment guide was nixed when the author jetted for FFXIonline.

As a new comer to the realm of any mage type, this is going to be very good to have access to. I currently have a 13smn/10whm. Thank you so much for taking the time to compile this!!!

noticed a small error in the merit section for mp. you can put 8 merits into mp or hp, or any combination as long as it's just 8 for the category. 4:4 5:3 6:2, etc. you had noted that it was a max of 5 mp merits and the rest had to be hp
