On this page of the guide to The Serpent Rogue, you will learn the mechanic of summoning animals and monsters, and learn how to make the necessary potion.
Summoning monsters differs from transforming in several important factors:
- The monster is created "out of nothing" - throw or drink a potion and a creature will appear suddenly next to you.
- A monster created in this way is not eternal - its existence is limited, represented as an Imitative status. After a few minutes, the monster will disintegrate.
- Summoned animals and other entities have the Soulless debuff, which significantly lowers their combat value by reducing health points. You can heal this ailment with the Soulfulness potion (Berry "multiplier" Adder Stone).
- Summon potion gives worse results, but is also cheap - you only need Berry and an animal fragment.
Summoning is a great method when you know that there is a fierce battle ahead in which your companions may die. In addition, you can carry one such potion to quickly summon someone to pick up some of your cargo and take it to the camp.
The summoned monsters will not provide you any items, but you can research them to add progress to the Bestiary.
How to brew summoning potions?
The summon potion is cheaper than the morph potion because it uses Berries as the Add essence instead of Mandragora. As the second ingredient, choose any animal whose fragment you have examined. The potions created in this way are called Create and the name of the monster. Drink them or throw anywhere.
