School: Conjuration (Summoning spells)
Level: Brd 1Clr 1Fvs 1Sor/Wiz 1
Spell Point Cost: 10
Components: VerbalVerbal: A verbal component is a spoken incantation. You cannot cast spells that require this component if you cannot act or speak. This has no gameplay applications in DDO, as all characters can always speak and there are no effects which prevent you from doing so., SomaticSomatic: A somatic component is a measured and precise movement of the hand. You cannot cast spells that require this component if you cannot move causing arcane spell failure resulting in a ruined spell. Spells without a somatic component may be used with disregard to Arcane Spell Failure chance. Note - that characters make the same arm gestures for most spells in DDO, so you can't tell which spells require this component by watching your character's animations.

Cooldown: 4 seconds (All except sorcerer), 2 seconds (Sorcerer)
Description:

Summons 1 monster from 3 choices: Celestial Dog, Brown Rat, Small Brown Spider, to fight for you for 10 minutes. You can only have 1 summoned creature of any type serving you at a time.

Notes:

  • Summoning a new creature of any type from another spell will return the previous one to its home plane. You may sometimes have multiple summons through the use of certain unique clickies or enhancements, but not any of the summon monster X line.
  • This spell has no timer associated, so you have to figure out yourself how much summoning time remains. On the plus side, the summoned creature won't disappear through rest. It will even persist a minute after the caster leaves the instance, but immediately disappear is the caster dies. The summoned Monster cannot be given orders nor use ladders, climb walls, or jump off platforms, however it will teleport to you if it cannot reach you and is very far away. It is affected by beneficial and detrimental spells much like any Hireling or party member.
  • It's often more efficient spell-points wise to summon a new creature than to heal an existing one; your Hirelings will unfortunately do the latter!
  • Casting time is much longer than other spells of the same level.
  • Bug: Summon Monster I-IX scrolls were not updated properly when they reduced the cooldown for these spells. They still have the 5 minute global cooldown, and when used - trigger this long 5 minute cooldown on 'all summon monster spells.

Summoned Creature notes: All summoned creatures are CR 1

  • Small Brown Spider: Neutral, slightly less hitpoints than dog or rat but does have tremor sense.
