General Information

  • Used by the Summoner to call forth their various elemental avatars, they are the only job with an innate summoning skill.

Indications of Increased Summoning Magic Skill

  • Adjustments to the Summoner job in October 2006 made having additional Summoning Magic skill over your skill cap beneficial when using Blood Pact: Ward and Blood Pact: Rage. When using Blood Pact: Ward, Summoners can experience longer Blood Pact durations depending on which pact is used, however these will not exceed 180 seconds. They will also notice increased magic accuracy when using Blood Pact: Rage. This information according to Update details posted on

  • Increased skill may reduce the chance of casting interruptions.

  • Elemental Avatars will cast their spells more frequently, sooner after being summoned and cast more appropriate spells when the Summoner's Summoning Magic Skill is above cap.
