Uses for Summons

There are two primary uses for summoned (or convinced) creatures:

  1. Blocker
  2. Shooter

With a summoned blocker, you will try to get the summon targeted, so that you can attack your target without taking damage.

With a summoned shooter, you will take the damage, and the summon will merely assist you in defeating your target.

NOTE: It is possible to have a summoned blocker AND shooter, but it is more difficult to coordinate their movements, and your summoned shooter is more likely to be targeted and take damage.
