Introduction

Summoner is a versatile class that fights using pets rather than weapons, each with their own unique move sets, strengths, and weaknesses. Great Summoners are able to manage their pets’ HP, positioning, and buffs, identify what pets best fit the current quest at hand, and make use of an array of techniques to support their pets, all while kicking out high damage.

While Summoner can be a little resource-intensive at first, it’s not too bad to overcome through weekly missions and a little patience, so don’t let this stop you from picking up Summoner even as a new player.

Initally, I wrote this guide after playing the Japanese version of PSO2 for a couple years, but I've since adapted this guide for Global as well - if you're playing on the Global version, look out for purple text highlighting information pertaining to Global.

Through reading this guide I hope you'll see that there's far more to the class than you might think and hopefully give it a shot!

This guide is something I write in my free time, out of love for Summoner - if you'd like to support me in that, contributions on my Patreon are greatly appreciated, but far from required.
