How feasible is a non-summoning summoner
« on: 18 September 2018, 19:37:46 »
I have wanted to get Flame Surge to work as a primary attack and I am wondering if a summoner build with no summons may work.

Primary attack: Flame Surge
Heart of Oak: to cut costs in half and more health/resistances
Plague: Debuff and a buff to flame surge
Other standard earth skills.

Would it work?  Too glass cannony?

In lategame, you will probably have maxed everything you needed and be left with an amazing amount of exceeding skill points. You will probably be forced to put some skills points on pets.

That's fine.  I imagine I'd end up going with the Core Dweller at some point, but he'd be more of a side point rather than focal point as most summons are in a summoner build.

the way I'm understanding this you want a mage but it's ok to have pets if they are just side points, right?

well, take this from someone who has played mages all his gaming life :)
pets are always side points when you are playing mages

edit: just consider the jewelries.. for mages, you want something like occult, socrates.. but for pets, you want wraithlords and the like.. if you make it mixed, you won't have an area of excellence

but WNG is right, you will have to put points in pets because you will have maxed everything you need
