Notes[edit]

  • Skills that summon creatures can be identified by various keywords in their descriptions: animated, bound, controlled, created, linked, owned, and ritual.
  • The summoner can see the amount of damage the summoned creature is dealing to foes.
  • Minions and spirits may be viewed in the Minion List (default key: Y).
  • These creatures are flagged (by the game's mechanics) with a separate trait, called summoned creature.
