Summoner primary archetype combined with Tank secondary is a Brood Warden class.[1]


The summoner uses many abilities that channel through their summon. The summoner is essentially playing through their summon.[2]

You gain your summons from your summoner class as an active skill and then skills can be further developed with points.[6]Steven Sharif

Summoners summon different summons, depending on the class and augments they choose.[8]

  • Animals.[8]
  • Spirits.[8][9]
  • Zombies, skeletons and other undead creatures.[4][9]
  • Corpses (potentially).[8]
  • Some summoners may summon multiple things.[8]
  • Other summoners may only summon one powerful thing.[8]
  • Certain summoners may only be able to summon effects and/or temporary energies.[8]

Augments from a secondary archetype can be applied to a summons.[10]

For example: If your summon had a sweeping attack with a claw, or had the ability to bite an opponent, or rush an opponent; and you took teleportation, you could rush them similar to how I've given an example with the tank: Teleporting to a target instead. Or, its claws could combust on impact on a target dealing some burn damage that persists. Or... let's say your summon traditionally was some type of bear or bear cat, you could apply an elemental augment and now it could be a transparent flaming bioluminescent cat; and its damage would be fire based. So, that's how we want to influence the active skills with how augments apply; and that's how it would apply with Summoners.[10]Steven Sharif

Summon appearance

A summon's appearance is determined by in-game choices.[11]

Summoners can change the appearance of their summons.[8]

The other cool thing about the you know summoner that we want to implement is kind of a summon creation suite where you can customize the appearance potentially based on what you found in the world. Something that's already going to be implemented with the animal husbandry system; and there's no reason why we can't take that technology- that you know system and apply it elsewhere such as with the Summoner.[13]Steven Sharif
