FFXIV Endwalker Summoner

With a history dating back to the powerful Allagan Empire, Summoners create miniature versions of primals from nothing but concentrated æther.

You can even call forth your own version of the Dreadwyrm Bahamut to smite your enemies with Akh Morn!

Each Summon that you manifest enhances your abilities in different ways, making Summoners very flexible and mobile on the battlefield if the situation requires it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does The Order For Using Primals Matter?

Mechanically, not at all. You’re free to make the choice in any order you wish.

At endgame, it will be optimal to choose the order that puts the most into the buffs you are working with, although that may be different depending on your raid composition.

The other reason to choose is that Garuda and Ifrit have some restrictions on their spells with long cast times, so make sure you can stand still to actually cast them when you enter those phases.

How Do Demi-Summon Attacks Work Now?

They are automatic against an active target and are locked at a total of 4 Demi-Summon autos each. There is no longer a need to manage the movement of Bahamut and Phoenix.

In dungeons it may appear clunky with movement, however, for stationary targets they root in place and cast without you having to do anything further.

Do Summons Benefit From Party Buffs?


Most buffs mirror from master to pet entities, as well as tinctures and food.

Do Pets Also Benefit From Dragon Sight?

Until the release of Endwalker, no.

This will need to be confirmed for 6.0+.

How Do I Change The Size Of My Summons?

/petsize [summon] [size]

where you replace [summon] with

Ruby Ifrit
Topaz Titan
Emerald Garuda

and [size] with



/petsize "Ruby Ifrit" "small"

All of the command arguments can be done with auto-translate.
