@ Adrianna: But then, what if you have it on different chars? As it is in my group. My main is necro and Lohse is summoner, and the funny little incarnate and the funny balloon blob from Necromancer crawl around at the same time.
They could have it easily solved by denying any Summoner stats increases to summons from other schools.
if you havent already get your summoning to level 10 and come back to me... at level 9.. it was a piece of trash... at level 10 summoning it could solo the entire encounter by itself.
