Summoning stone

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Summoning stones are a type of consumable used to summon allies to assist the player. The ally will be at the player character's level and last for 30 minutes (with the exception of the Igneous Summoning Stone, whose Fire Imp lasts for 60 minutes) or until slain in combat. Activating a summoning stone causes the player character to suffer from Summoning Sickness, which temporarily prevents them from using another summoning stone for 10 minutes. Most summoning stones can be used only once; however, there are two with infinite uses: the Igneous Summoning Stone and Legionnaire Summoning Crystal.

Although the in-game descriptions of all summoning stones indicate that they "can only be used in explorable areas", they can also be used in missions and dungeons. Summoning stones cannot be used during solo quests or Augury Rock; however, they can be used during Tihark Orchard. There can only be one summoned ally in an instance at a time. This ally will follow the summoner, similar to minions, but they almost never break off combat, often leading to their demise in the event of a retreat.
