My Summoner has no Artifact gear whatsoever, two or three Avatars,
level 95 Summoning Magic, and no Carbuncle Mitts.
He proudly wields a Pilgrim's Wand.

Discuss.

Update. Level 75.

Stacking up on summoning skill gear because my actual skill level is way low.

Went with Evoker's Bracers +1.

I'm not absolutely certain on this (I'd have to actually try it) but I believe that WHM75/NIN, with Mystic Boon, could probably solo the basic six. (Leviathan will be a massive hoser and probably decide to use Spring Water way too often, though. Since that would make you lose from running out of time... hope it doesn't get used. :-D)

There's also the option of doing the 20cap fights.

You know, I've always been one to advocate keeping mini-forks for extra travel options. I've never bought into the drivel of being a better SMN or needing that sense of accomplishment for beating the 20 fights.

But in all honesty, I've used those mini-forks specifically for travel... twice. While I was getting AF.

I use the mini fork travel often.
I farm the avatars for gil. I also help people get the pacts, whispers for fenrir, and items. I guess I go there alot because Summoner is my main job and I rarely change to any other job. I did the mini battle for titan and I regret it now. I'm just glad titan isnt that bad of a run.

I'm relatively certain, a WHM75, regardless of sub can solo all 6 avatars.

I tell people to do them because they are fun. Of course if you are 75 you can just do the normal ones and have roughly the same amount of fun.

Good Lord.

Well, got 75 today. (Post #2 was a joke post, first was f'realz.)

I have all my basic avatars, but I do still need Fenrir and Diabolos.

Anyways... I decided that to get all the whispers I need for Fenrir, as well as complete the quest for "Evoker's Ring", I'd go on a little avatar soloing-fest.

Yeah... didn't work out so well.

I think I can do the other ones, but I started off trying Leviathan because it was Lightningsday.

Bad idea. I ran out of MP quickly and was reduced to kiting with Carbuncle.

I never bothered levelling SCH (levelled then began hating WHM before WoTG) so I didn't have Sublimation... also, my crap Summoning Magic: I got a whopping 72 MP from Elemental Siphon.

Also, I tried both Chaotic Strike and Predator Claws (my friend suggested just using the latter) but both were pretty low in damage.

I have a feeling Predator Claws was missing some.

Anyway, the damage from my level 70 Blood Pacts was overwhelmed by Leviathan's Spring Water and by the time I was out of MP and using Carbuncle, his HP % was still somewhat high.

Then I died out of stupidity/frustration. (I wouldn't have killed him in time anyway, assuming he continued to use Spring Water)

So, next on my agenda is to level Summoning Magic.

In fact, I'm levelling it as a type this. Got a nice little macro worked out.

Also, Scholar to level 37 ASAP, with some meriting in between.

I hear a lot about Summoners meriting Magic Att./Accuracy but I'm going to stick with 5/5 on both Physical Avatar Att./Accuracy because that seems more fun and appealing to me.

I replaced that Vermillion's Cloak with the Yinyang Robe/Evoker's Horn combo, so I don't have that to worry about.

And I know, http://www.livejournal.com/, etc. - but I wanted to share with you guys about my struggles as a Summoner so far.

Do you guys have any other suggestions on what I should be focusing on as a new Summoner 75, besides what I've already mentioned?

Any tips for levelling Summoning Magic?

I'm making that a priority because I really want to stack up on some +skill gear for my Blood Pacts and Elemental Siphon.

I think once I have a decent Siphon and Sublimation I'll have more than enough MP to play with.

I don't know if it's helping any, but my server also finally got Martial Master, which, apparently, gives more skill-ups to "battle" skills while you have Signet. Fingers crossed that Summoning Magic is included in that.

Thanks in advance for any advice, friendly Summoner board-people! Smiley: grin
