The Summoner

The Summoner is a versatile class in Blade and Soul, and is best described as a "jack-of-all-trades, but master-of-none."Summoners are Lyn-exclusive, and call upon a Familiar to take damage for the player and to assist in close-range combat. A Summoner's primary attacks cast spells at a distance, and so are excellent at ranged combat. With their mix of support and defensive skills, they are easy for most any player to use.

Races[edit | edit source]

This class can only be played with the Lyn.

Cats[edit | edit source]

The introductory quest Master Hong's Summons goes a little bit different for Summoners than for other classes. At the end of the quest, the player is prompted to choose a cat follower/familiar from among 5 options.

Toggle for the Cats!
"You ready to fight? I'm ready to fight. You ready to kick some tail? I'm ready to kick some tail!
Let's conquer the world... together! Purr! Meow!
Pick me, and you can name me whatever you want. As long as it's ferocious!"
"I don't know you, but I already love you! I'll be the most loyal Familiar ever!
Please pick me!
My name is Fido, but you can call me whatever you want.
Can we play fetch? Ruff! Uh, I mean meow."
"I'm trying to look my best for you, Summoner. This is my first time to your realm!
Are you nervous? I am. Oh, please pick me. You seem nice, purr.
Are you really going to make me your Familiar? I'm so excited!
Take your time naming me. Purr, meow!"
"I'm very experienced in the ways of your world, Summoner!
In return for my services, I ask only for your trust... and a few fish!
Will you bond with me, Summoner?
Please pick a name that suits you... and me-ow!"
"So we're going to learn martial arts and fight for good, right?
I guess I can do that between naps.
My name's Frisky, but name me whatever you want."
