Summoning in Divinity Original Sin 2 Divinity Original Sin 2 Guide, walkthrough

This page of the Divinity Original Sin 2 guide contains a detailed description of Summoning magic school. You'll learn what kind of magic the school is characteristic for, what spells can you utilize and their effects.

Abilities from Summoning school allow you to summon various creatures on a battlefield. What is more, additional points invested in this ability increase effectiveness (damage, health, armor) of all summoning spells (you can find them in Pyrokinetic, Necromancer, Polymorph and Geomancer schools). Because of that this ability is useful to most of the characters.

Warning - if you have problems with finding traders that offer a particular skill book, you can check the chapter with maps of Fort Joy, Reaper's Coast, Nameless Isle and Arx where you can find locations of all traders in the game.

2 Memory

1 AP

This ability is useful during fights against enemies that are vulnerable to Poison. The ability is more effective than Poison Infusion because it gives you access to an additional skill.

Conjure Incarnate - summon a creature that is later controlled by the player.

Creature's stats depend on Summoning level of the caster.

At level 10 of Summoning you can summon an Incarnate Champion, a more powerful version of this monster.

1 Memory

2 AP

5 turns cooldown

This ability is very useful, especially in the beginning of the game - a summoned creature is able to match most of the enemies.

A creature receives traits of an element on which it was summoned - if a familiar was summoned on Fire it gets Fireball spelland is invulnerable to this element.

One of the best abilities from this school mainly because of the additional ability - Closed Circuit - which deals tremendous amount of damage.

5 turns cooldwon

This is, hands down, the best ability from this school. It allows you to control a target for 2 rounds, provided that they don't have magic armor.

It is also great for countering that effect if it was used on one of your characters - you can simply cast it on that character and make it rejoin your side.

Just like Conjure Incarnate, a totem receives traits of an element on which it was summoned - this means that it can deal any of the types of damage.

This ability is useful throughout the entire game - even if a totem doesn't deal a lot of damage, it can still focus enemy's attention for 1-2 attacks.

Ethereal Storm - summon multiple projectiles that can either heal allies or hurt enemies with a random element - Summoning in Divinity Original Sin 2 - Magic schools and skills - Divinity Original Sin 2 Guide

4 AP

The weakest spell out of all "the most powerful" ones in the game. Just like Dimensional Bolt, you can't rely on it - you can deal a lot of damage when you roll an element to which your targets are vulnerable but it can also heal them if they are invulnerable to that effect.
