Druid/Thaum + Contingent Summon

Unread post by Theodore01 »

Build is a druid/thaumaturge 4 with lv8 spells.

Contingent Summoning always summons a Phantom Wolf regardless of which summon spell is memorized. As I only have summon monster VIII spells memorized.


From my own testing - now with Thaum5 and level9 spells - I always get the Phantom Bear (without having that spell memorized again).

Please can that be fixed, so it will recognize the memorized summon spell? (No problem if it takes the first one - if one has more than one memorized.)

Also now with Planar Cohort (Thaum5) - the Phantom Wolf/Bear is now permanent (it seems) - definitely longer than double 1round/level ???

Is that considered a feature/bug for the classes that lack a Planar Calling or Binding spell?
If it's a feature - Will it make any other summon monster X spell also permanent?

Would have assumed Planar Cohort would do nothing for a class without planar calling or binding spells. :?

Planar Cohort does apply to Phantom Wolf/Bear, yes. That's a feature.

As for why it's always summoning a PW regardless of which summon spell is memorized, not sure.

Is it possible to add an elemental cohort (spell) also, which would fit RP wise together with Druids Epic Elemental Shape?
(As Wolf/Bear fits nicely with Legendary Animal Shape.)
