Hey folks!

I'm not sure if what I'm asking for is possible, plausible or hard to implement, but there's been a lot of radial menus added to a lot of spells and so here it is:

Could we get a radial menu for Contingent Summoning on Thaumaturges to sellect which spell you want replicated? Really most of us just want the Planar Bindings / Allies from it, and I've seen wizards erasing Summon IX and VII from their spellbook for those reasons, but alas, clerics dont even have that option. Could it be possible to have it actually become useful and allow for a casting of Planar Ally somehow? Because as it is now, I've not had the reason to use it once. All it'd do is unsummon the creature I actually wanted.

Cheers.

I'll start a topic in QC since I'm no expert on the class, but this seems like a pretty reasonable request at first glance. We'll see what we can do.

I have been playing Thaumaturge for a while, lately.

Contingent Summon is currently useless, mainly because:

Said this, the class is fine even as is, with Contingent Summon used only when the character lost all his creatures. This is mainly due to the interaction between Planar Cohort, Augment Summoning and the effect Conjuration Focus Feats have on the creatures, together with the utility (NOT the stats, which are fine. The utility is instead often very powerful.) the new creatures available bring.

In the hands of a half decent player, Thaumaturge is fairly powerful right now, especially if full DC caster.

This change would be simply QoL, and wouldn't alter the power of the class at all.
