It's not necessarily a bad thing to just get one summon if that creature is powerful, imo. I mean sure, it's nice to swarm enemies with lots of cannon fodder type summons, I guess, but... I am quite fine with summoning one powerful bastard instead to avoid cluttering the screen and make things possibly a bit more balanced.
Wrong. Read what I said about balance above
"1 - In a SP game, FUN > Balance.
2 - A lot of D&D games din't had this BS. BG1/2 had a lot of powerful summons.
3 - Consistency in mechanics and lore >>>> balance. And a necromancer unable to control two undeads makes ZERO sense.
4 - Balance is subjective. Some people complain about bolt action rifles and shotguns on BF1, literally the less used weapons in the game and the weapons which people should use the most in a WW1 scenario.
5 - D&D was never balanced, except 4e which is the worst edition by far.
And even 4e, WoTC prefered to not include necromancy for the sake of the balance dogma than including a USELESS SINGLE summon limit on 4e. 4e was awful but at least they din't included an SUB class that serves to nothing but to cause frustration among the class fans."
This is summoning on kingmaker and yes, you can shapeshift into a silver dragon
And so far you have litteraly no idea how Larian will implement them ...
Didnt people say simmilar thing about Ranger? It seem quite powerfull to me.
Because seems trashier than the P&P while range is better than P&P.
