Summoning Skills in Divinity: Original Sin 2 are located on this page. The Summoning school uses Incarnates and totems to make life a living hell for opponents. Both Incarnates and Totems take on powers based on the surface they are summoned on, and they can be buffed as well. Every Ability Point in the Summoning combat ability will increase your summons' Vitality, Damage, Magic Armour and Physical Armour.

      People talk a lot about summoning as a one dimensional skill dump, but the real 'chads' know that "Soul mate" makes everyone's obligatory death knight character a healer. If you have ~4 points in summoning from gear for some reason pick up "Bloated Corpse" from the necromancy skills and enjoy your spammable 1AP blood bag that either soaks up an enemy's turn being put out of its misery, or detonates for some fairly lethal AoE damage. And of course, "Bone Widow" is about 60% of a fully buffed incarnate for 50% of the AP cost to whip out, potentially 75% of the cost (1 AP) with Elemental Affinity. Quick note about Dimensional Bolt: It has a one turn cool down making it a reliable AP dump for an intelligence character, compared to most reliable elemental spells having a 3 turn recharge.

        Summoning is OP early game but falls off quickly. You need to either side-spec into another class at the same time to keep up with the damage bloat later on and/or be useful to the party. Most of the time the Incarnate is more useful as a deterrent than a meat shield, since the enemies would prefer to go after you first, but they will be less inclined when you are far away and the incarnate is right up in their face. The secretly most useful skill in the whole summoning school is summon totems, since you can have 3-4 up at the same time, and their damage is nothing to scoff at

          I dont think summoning is OP. A fully stocked mage in most schools with their 3 source point spells, or a two handed warfare player can do 3x or more damage than incarnate can in a single turn, without the versatility/being a meat shield. If you and a friend are doing a lone wolf playthrough this doesnt compare to rigging your character in almost every other school. In a 4 man I can see its uses.

            summoning isn’t talked about enough and is so OP You can literally beast mode any enemy regardless of their resistances simply because you can infuse your incarnate with ANY element. If you have Lvl 10 summoning and use necrofire or cursed electric infusion on your incarnate- they get either epidemic of fire or Closed circuit. Simply summon your incarnate into the thick of battle, buff his a#% (peace of mind, power/far sight/necrofire/curses electric infusion and you’ve easily capped almost any enemy before any bodies layer a finger on most of your party.

              So serious question: why should I bother with any other summon, like the Oil Blob or the Fire Slug, when I could have the Incarnate instead? The incarnate can change elemental forms to fit the situation at hand, and can be buffed a ridiculous amount to be absurdly powerful, so what merits do other summons (like Oil Blob or Fire Slug) have over the incarnate?

                Something to consider to all my magic users in a 4 man team of friends and they all go physical damage. Don't overlook summoning, it's an amazing tool for someone in a mixed party (or not). I normally go something along the lines of healer and support so I obviously will take some points into hydrosophist but I started to noticed that I was spending all my time trying to break magic armor while my friends had the targets already dead by the time I really started to get my combos off so I went out on a limb and took summoning. It's made me go from standard support type roll to able to really pull off some crazy combos with my Incarnate out on the field. He can be used to aid ripping off magical armor and setting you up for your hydro combos while you baby your friendly dwarf that is always on fire (looking at you Simon if your reading this). He really does fill any role you wanna put him in. side note: It's always good to have one type of caster in the group imho, a lot of enemies you encounter will have super low magical defense and with you out there chewing them up and keeping them frozen, burned, poisoned and shocked allows for your physical oriented friends to have a lighter battle load and keeps pressure off your healer/support (if you go that role). Late game it won't be too much of an issue with all the ways your friends can help rip off magical armor with strength/fineness scaling skills. Ex: Flayed skin, chloroform, gag order and Silencing stare.

                  I think it'd be cool, and balanced, to separate each summon so you can have 1 incarnate and say, one dragonling out at the same time. On lone wolf it sometimes feels limiting because they start off with 4 action points, 5 with haste buff, but when you're so used to having 6 it's depressing.

                  I honestly get way more out of fane using apotheosis time warp blood storm and grasp of the starved combo for instance, so as far as being overpowered I daresay this is the least problematic thing to consider.

                  Just reduce summon times, and maybe lower stats, or have a limit breach per 5 levels of summoning. So a lone wolf could have 4 pets maxed but only 2 for a nonbuffed 4 party crew character. But it would allow other summons to be used to create forced variety so you can't just pop 3 incarnate champs out like other mods are doing.

                  I think the spell variety of an intelligence mage is more involving than just dropping a summon and buffing it with the lower tier spells. Allowing me to use the different summons together would enhance my gameplay experience, and with proper balance, can make the summoning class a fun class to play.

                    Some additional information about infusions that isn't immediately clear from the skill descriptions:

                    Power/Farsight: Provide a 25% damage bonus. Armor provided is boosted if the Incarnate has any +armor effects, including those from an infusion and level 10 Champion summoning. Modified armor is not shown in the tooltip, but can be close to 3x the displayed amount on an infused Incarnate Champion. Makes it just about the tankiest thing on the battlefield.

                    Warp Infusion: Adds 15% dodging.

                    Shadow Infusion: Adds 1 movement.

                        Really overpowered early game. Incarnate does more damage with any spells he and I both have. Summons should NOT get to act the turn they're summoned, they should only get to fight the next turn.

                          level 6 right now, i was a newbie, no idea what i was doing, i dropped wizard schools, and took air magic with summons. it is a great combo, i made fane take summoner, those two are a power house together. makes me want to try archery and summons on a character real bad. he is also a great support character. a water infusion grants you a heal, that helps me in a pinch when the cleric already has dropped hers on our tank and our other people need it too

                            I'm rocking summoning 21 at lvl15; it's pretty awesome. Note that you can/should cast your Incarnate and buff it pre-fight, more often than not your best bet is a Blood Incarnation (my solution is Blood Rain on other character).

                            Incarnate is very capable of dealing 800-1200 dmg per turn (+Opportunity), which in itself almost justifies a dedicated summoning build (+totems +buffs +heal in spare time)

                              Imo the one of the strongest classes atm, summoners lvl 10 incarnate deals almost same damage as my geared warrior, not taking into account that he has x2 phys armor

                                Summoner level improves the summons of other schools. I recommend putting 2 points into Necromancer to be able to summon Bone Widow ( Spellbook is sold in driftwood ) and get a very powerful summon that powers through a good portion of the game. Bone widow is stronger than champion incarnate with triple health and double the dmg.
                                Notice that you can only summon one "Soul Bond" summon, so you cant summon fire slug/incarnate/bone widow at the same time but you can summon totems since they are not player controlled.

                                    I believe so, Take for example the Necromancer Skill "Raise Bone Widow",
                                    It says in Blue text "The stats of the summons will depend on caster level and Summoning ability."
