Phantasy Star Online 2: Summoner
  Last update at 06 Aug 2019 15:25

This guide is intended to be a comprehensive version of the poster-like Summoner Guide I have made before. This expands the idea of sub classes, pet attacks, and equipments. Updates will be done regularly based on new material or discovery.

Part 1: Summoner Basics

A summoner is a class that utilizes pets to inflict damage at enemies. The pets are basically the summoner’s weapon, with their own stats and Photon Arts (PA). Pets are most damaging when using Summoner main as the class have a couple of ways to raise the pet damage. Being a Summoner is relatively more expensive compared to other classes: instead of eating up your assets, it will directly eat your Meseta, time, and your precious SG.

  Part 1 Objectives, you will be able to:
  • Gain Meseta by following ARKS Road closely
  • Buy or find a Light-attribute Wanda (ワンダ) Egg
  • Locate Pietro
  • Locate Ariel
  • Raise only Mag's TATK
  • Pick Torim or Cery as your second pet

Early Levels

You picked Summonner and stared with a Wanda (ワンダ) (do check that little Wanda). What goes from here?

Lets check a few things:

  • Find the [Pet] menu and check your Wind-attribute Wanda with Enjoys Sun personality. It should have a few PA available, one of which is Wanda Slicer.
  • Take a look at your Takt. It will be your best friend for a long while till you can get a Rose Skewer.
  • You have this something called ARKS Road to follow.

To ease yourself, follow the ARKS Road closely. It will teach you the basic of the gameplay, especially how to care for your pets.

While doing that, your Wanda, while perfectly serviceable, will not do good on longer term due to its Wind-attribute. While your Wanda is still low-leveled, we can replace him without any repercussions.

First, find a Visiphone.

Second, Select [Player Shop], finish the password registration and such. Do not worry, it is not complicated. Remember to save your password somewhere in case you forget it.

First option, conviniently.

Now you can browse the Player Shop, look for a Light-attribute Wanda Egg with Enjoys Sun Personality.

Be smart and use filter!

The Egg looks like this.
The Egg looks like this.

If you cannot afford it now, follow the ARKS Road to obtain some Meseta (be careful during the Mag lessons! Do not level up your mag yet!). ARKS Road would also teach you how to hatch your egg (Use said egg from [Item] menu) and feed an EXP egg to your Pet via Egg Synthesis.

Pietro will teach the bulk of it.
Pietro will teach the bulk of it.

As you are going for some quests like poking poor Naberius monkeys, you will notice that you get some EXP Egg 6★. You will always obtain this as long as your main class is Summoner, so you have no worry about pet leveling. Also visit the Pet Labs in the Shop Area.

Ariel will be your best friend!.
Ariel will be your best friend!.

So to recap, if you follow ARKS Road, you should be able to do these:

  • Hatch Pet Eggs from inventory
  • Feed Pet with Eggs that raises their level via [Egg Synthesis] from [Pet] menu
  • Set a Takt and Pet and Pet PA on [Weapon] menu
  • Equip units
  • Buy items from Player Shop.
    • Oh, did you get that Light-attribute Enjoys Sun Wanda Egg? Remember to hatch it and equip it on [Weapon] menu!

Now you have the Light attribute Wanda with Enjoys Sun personality, you are pretty much set. Feed it with all the eggs you have!

Mag and Starting Subclass

At a certain point early in the game, you will get a Mag. If you are to use Summoner as-is. You will want a T-ATK Mag (unless you plan to sub Bouncer, see below). Only increase the T-ATK on your mag, and nothing else. Messing up your Mag's stat is costly: 50 Excubes per 1 level, roughly 600K Meseta.

For subclass, Braver is recommended as it is the most beginner-friendly due to Attack Advance skill.

Although Summoner can use S-ATK or R-ATK for pets, focusing on T-ATK is easier for the endgame:

  • T-ATK affixes are cheaper than R-ATK or S-ATK.
  • Resta, or healing depends on T-ATK only.
  • Rappy Melody's heals depends on their and character's T-ATK
  • Rykros Staff's Potential.pngGlance of Darkness depends on character's T-ATK.

  When in doubt, fill you Mag with T-ATK using tech weapon like Staff, Wand, Talis, or Jet Boots. Reduce its Dex by feeding it with Trimate or 6★ Room Goods. Never let any other stat gains a single level!

  Focusing on S-ATK: As Fi, you might be tempted to focus on SATK, but the only skill that take advantage from this is Fi's Crazy Beat, and in normal circumstances, this skill rarely activates. It will be useful against solo aggressive bosses like XQ Phantom, Masquerade, or EP4 Duel Phaleg, but outside of that, it does little service.

  Focusing on DEX: This allows you to take advantage of Bo and Ph mag, giving you access to the 2 most powerful Su subs, but its payoff is really long as you need 2 Level 75 classes to unlock Phantom, on top of requiring weapons to raise Ph, and starting as SuBo isn't really recommended due to the hassle it comes with.

The Second Pet

At this point, you might notice that a pet cannot fully die, they will just be stunned when their HP reaches 0. Stunned pet are unusable for a period of time, notably Wanda is 30 seconds, thus do consider a secondary pet. Take note, only use Light attribute pets (more on this later).

Melon (メロン) is the best pick, especially if you have its ★14 egg. Melon will provide the punch you need to take down bosses quickly, albeit at the cost of higher PP consumption. If you don't have a Melon, Torim (トリム) or Cery (サリィ) would be a good choice since they are easy to use. Torim has powerful single strike attack, while Cery is a long-lange support pet. If you are limited on resource though, stick to that Wanda.

  When in doubt, always use Wanda/Jinga first as they are the safest pet to use.

Notable NPCs

Pet's Properties

Pet has several important properties, from Rarity, Personality, Elemental Attribute, and Pet Plus.

Rarity

A pet has a rarity that determines their highest level. Rarity can be upgraded at the Pet Lab if you have a higher rarity egg of the same species (i.e. You can only increase rarity of a 7★ Viola with a 8★ Viola).
Rarity Max Level
6★ L60
7★ L65
8★ L70
9★ L75
10★ L85
11★ L90
12★ L100 (Limit Break to 110, ask Pietro)
13★ L100 (Limit Break to 120, ask Pietro)
14★ L100 (Limit Break to 130, ask Pietro)

Rarity upgrade also allows you to change pet's personality, provided the fodder egg has different personality and at least of the same rarity.

Wanda, Torim, and Cery can be rarity upgraded to Jinga, Aero, and Popple, respectively. Be warned that if you say, evolve Wanda to Jinga, you need another Jinga Egg to rarity upgrade it. That being said, there are no reason to pick Wanda over Jinga, Torim over Aero, or Cery over Popple. Jinga, Aero, and Popple are superior in every aspects, unless your Wanda, Torim, and Cery are 14★.

Personality

Personality is similar to weapon potential. They have varied effect, but most prominent is increasing damage. Personality has 5 levels and is automatically raised as pet levels up (Pet L100 is where you can attain L5 Personality). Changing personality can be hard or impossible as it requires egg of at least the same rarity.

"Super" personality (e.g. Super Fervent, Super Dilligent) will have an additional effect of raising Rare Drop Rate by 5%.

  Warning! I cannot stress this enough, but changing personality is close to impossible for high rarity pet. If you have a 13★ pet whose personality you want to change, you need another 13★ pet with different personality.

Elemental Attribute

Pets starts with a 10 attribute value that is visible upon viewing the egg. Ideally, you will want the default attribute to be Light. You can change attribute by putting Lemonade in the Candy Box, but changing to Light Attribute is very costly. Attribute can be raised by putting Pancakes. Pets with 12★ rarity or below will have a maximum of 50 attribute, while a 13★ or above will have 60 attribute.

Attribute directly affects pet damage. Let's say you have a pet with 1000 ATK (any attack) with 50 Light attribute. While in the information screen the pet has 1000 ATK, it effectively has:

1000 ATK + 50/100 * 1000 ATK = 1500 ATK

If the pet attacks a target which is weak to Light element, its effective attack will be:

1000 ATK + 50/100 * 1.2 * 1000 ATK = 1600 ATK

And thus, raising element is the best way to increase overall pet's damage.

  Warning! Always appraise Egg to Light-attribute and always hatch Light-attribute pets if you want to raise them properly.

Pet Plus

A pet has extra HP, S-ATK, R-ATK, T-ATK, and DEX to be raised. This is called Pet Plus, as seen on the figure below.

A Pet Plus of a Rappy, not yet maximized.
A Pet Plus of a Rappy, not yet maximized.

Each pet type has a different plus value cap; any Wanda will have same the same cap, but a Jinga will have different cap than Wanda. Pet Plus can make or break pet: Rappy is quite weak without its all stat +250 Pet Plus cap. However, pet's Plus value will be close-to-maxed, if not maxed, once they reach L120 by feeding random Pet eggs.

Feeding another pet egg to increase the Pet Plus.
Feeding another pet egg to increase the Pet Plus.

  Remember! Pet Plus will usually be maxed, if not near-maxed, it you continue to feed other pet eggs to your pet! You might be maxing them without even realizing!

Egg Synthesis / Pet Level Up

Level up pet by using [Egg Synthesis] on Pet menu. Unleveled pet is only as frightening as a Rappy Doll room item. A pet can be feed (synthesized) with an EXP Egg or another pet egg. If you are a Summoner main, you will have a steady drop of EXP Eggs. The Pet Lab can exchange grinders for 6★ EXP egg or Photon Sphere for 12★ EXP Egg.

  Warning! A Level 1 Pet is as intimidating as a L1 Rappy. Level your pet properly!

  You can use Synthesis Charge to boost the EXP gained from eggs. It will cost 10 SG the first 3 times. This is best used on L100+ pet after Limit Break; feed them at least ★12 EXP Eggs.

Candy Box

This is the last aspect of pet raising. Candy Box is akin to putting affix to regular weapons or units. A pet always starts with a 8x8 candy box that is filled with Gelatin Cube (Blue), Caramel Cube (Orange), and Paper Cube (Gray). Each pet type has a different box layout, for the exception of Wanda/Jinga, Torim/Aero, and Cery/Popple.

Candy Box Basics

Below is an example of a fresh Wanda/Jinga box:

Freshly hatched Wanda's Candy Box
Freshly hatched Wanda's Candy Box

Blue Gelatin Cubes will be removed automatically once a pet reaches level 50 (or so).

Brown Caramel Cubes, require Caramel Crusher (8 Excubes) to remove. A pet will always start with 8 Caramel Cubes, requiring you to spend 64 Excubes per pet.

Gray Paper Cube cannot be removed. Makes you wonder why since they are supposed to be paper.

Candy Box Content

A CandyBox can hold a limited amount of candies. It is a good idea to compress candies first before putting it to candy box. Compressing candies require Meseta and Grinders. Parfaits will require Lambda Grinders.
From the most important candies:

Icon Candy Type Description
Pancake.png Pancakes Pancakes are the second most important candy, an they increase the elemental value. You can only put 2 of them, requiring you to have 3-Layers and 2-Layer pancakes to maximize a 13★ pet's element. You need 160 Synthesizers to create a 2-Layer Pancake (8 Excubes) and 1050 Synthesizer to create a 3-Layer Pancake (53 Excubes). For newbies, start with 2 2-Layer Pancakes and destroy one of them when you have the resource to create the 3-Layer Pancake. They can be compressed 3 times to a 2x2 size. All pancakes require 6 Grinders and either 9869 Meseta (1-Layer), 25194 Meseta (2-Layer), and 42214 Meseta (3-Layer).
Parfaits.png Parfaits Parfait is the most important candy on the box, and they usually boosts damage. You can only put 2 and as a special rule just for them, they have to be different kind of parfait. A parfait can be compressed 4 times to a 2x2 size, costing a total of 12 Lambda Grinders and 636300 Meseta.
Rolls.png Rolls Rolls are the third most important candy, and they have a varied uses. You can put 2 rolls and they can be compressed twice. Depending on the roll's rarity, it will cost 6 Grinders and 28459 Meseta for a 10★, 8 Grinders and 59347 Meseta for an 11★, and finally 10 Grinders and 82625 Meseta for a 12★.
Cookie.png Cookies Cookies adds stat, and they are akin to affixes, meaning that their stat increase will not contribute to elemental multiplier. You can put 3 cookies in a candy box. For basic users, put the same cookie as your character's best attack stat. By default, this is your T-ATK, so stock Technic Cookies. For advanced users, stock Spirita Cookies for later as they will come in handy with 14★ Pets. Cookies can be compressed 3 times, costing a total of 6 Grinders and 25205 Meseta.
Stick_Candy.png Candy Sticks Candy sticks have varying properties, but they usually increase stats without needing to be compressed. You can put 4 candy sticks in a candy box.
Sandwich.png Sandwiches Sandwiches raises one type of defense by 100, depending their name. They don't require compression either. You can put 5 sandwiches in a candy box, but most often you will only need 1 to 3.
Soda.png Sodas The Sode / Lemonade / Ramune changes the element of the pet. This requires 1 Attribute Changer and 100 Synthesizer. They can be compressed twice to a 1x1 size. While their compression price is negligible, the Attribute Changer is an entirely different thing. Non-light attribute can be anywhere around 100K-1M Meseta on the Player Shop, while the Light Attribute Changer can go around 2M-5M+.
PetGummy.png Gummies Gummies adds 10 HP and they are 1x1 each. Use them to fill the gap caused by other candies.
Crepe.png Crepes Crepes adds things like EXP gain rate, rare drop rate, and Meseta gain rate. However, at maximum compression, they are still a 2x2 candy and their minuscule boosts is not worth sacrificing that kind of space.

Candy Box Tools

As you fill your Candy Box, you might notice that you can remove a few candies to add more useful candies. This is where these tools come in handy. Two of them can be found at Ariel's Pet Good Shop, and the Removers (that returns candy to your inventory) are only available from SG Shop.

Icon Tool Description
CaramelCrusher.png Caramel Crusher Deletes a caramel cube. Costs 8 Excubes.
CandyEraser.png Candy Eraser Deletes a candy. Costs 10 Grinders.
CandyRemover.png Candy Remover Contrary to its name, this returns a candy to your inventory. Costs 1 SG at SG shop.
CandyRemover.png All Candy Remover Returns an entire candy box to your inventory. Costs 5 SG at SG Shop.

Part 3: Pets

The other important thing beside raising your pet properly is how to use them properly. There are a number of pets for a Summoner, each with their own specific purpose.

  Part 3 Objectives, you will be able to:
  • Deploy different pet according best suited on their strength and weakness
  • Use the highest DPS move whenever possible
  • Use DoT attacks to maximize damage
  • Use Recall PA to bring pet back to your side
  • Assemble each pet's candy box to the recommendation

Glossary

Please note the following glossary before reading the detailed description of each pets.
Terms Description
Damage A rough calculation based on pet's average ATK (Pet Plus included) at L130 (14★ rarity) using assumption that Character has 1000 ATK, 400 T-ATK affix total (Units and Pets), and enemy with 350 T-DEF. Personality and Other Candy Box contents are ignored unless specified.
DPS Rating Rating of Damage per second, calculated roughly by damage divided by frame, divided by average damage of Pet PAs. This is solely used to determine which pet attack is more powerful when used over and over. It does not mean that it is the most efficient attack.
Recall PA A Photon Arts (PA) that returns pet to your side and stops it from using further attack. This will pause the effect of Near Auto Target ring. Unless noted, pet will perform the move first before returning.
DoT Damage-over-time, inflicts small damage over a set amount of time. It is similar to Poison, but is not counted as a status effect, hence do not activate Chase Advance Plus. A DoT skill will sucessfully deliver damage if the first hit lands, even if the part is hidden or the pet got stunned. However, it will cancel if the affected part is destroyed, or pet is unsummoned.
Frame The amount of frame required to finish the attack 1 second (1s) consists of 60 frames (60f). The smaller the frame for PA, the better the utilization for Rykros Staff's Potential.pngGlance of Darkness.
Potential.pngGlance of Darkness (GoD) The damaging projectile of Rykros Staff during Alter Ego. In this guide, it is assumed that the projectile hits.

  Warning! DPS values are only used as a relative value to compare one pet's damage to another! Do not use it for any other purpose than this!

  Example 1: Despite Aero having higher base T-ATK, Viola's normal attacks (1461 T-ATK, 27-30 DPS) are way stronger than Aero's (1508 ATK, 11-18 DPS).

  Example 2: The game listed that Jinga Slicer has 2325 Power, while Melon Break has 1586 Power. Below you will find the DPS of Jinga Slicer is 61, while Melon Break is 69, thus using Melon Break is ~13% stronger than Jinga Slicer.

Wanda / Jinga (ワンダ/ジンガ)

PetWandaIcon.png
PetJingaIcon.png
Wanda / Jinga

A pet without real weakness, dubbed "Almighty Pet" in Japan. They have a rather efficient PP usage (even more efficient on Wanda), solid DPS, powerful normal attacks, high HP, high defense, and easy to use PAs. When in doubt of what pet to use, Wanda or Jinga is never a wrong choice.

14★ Wanda is more durable with higher HP and Def. 14★ Jinga has higher ATK and upgraded Jinga Assault, having a wider attack area and higher multiplier. There are little reasons to use Wanda, so the numbers listed on here are based on Jinga.

Personality.pngPowerful (パワフル) 14★ only. Combines the effect of Enjoys Sun and Fervent, as well as having increased rare item drop rate.

2 Normal Attack DPS Rating: The DPS rating of Normal Attacks. Hold is the DPS if you hold the normal attack button. Auto is the number if you let the pet attack freely. If only Hold exists, then the pet will do less if you don't hold the button. The number in bracket is the restored PP per second, disregarding natural PP regen.
3 Overall DPS Rating: The greater the number, the greater the pet's DPS potential is. This is calculated by using Glance of Darkness with Rykros Staff +30, during standard case scenario: Phantom sub, enemy is weak to pet's element, enemy isn't moving, a pair of 110% damage parfaits, using PA to deplete 200PP, then use Normal Attacks to get back 200PP (boosted natural PP regen and attack PP regen due to Phantom sub is calculated).

Torim / Aero (トリム/アエロ)

PetTorimIcon.png
PetAeroIcon.png
Torim / Aero

A pet with high powered PAs, focusing on quality over quantity. They are best suited to pursuit agile enemies with their fast Stab and their double DoT attacks. Their main weakness is their lack of wide area attack, PP inefficiency, low defense, and weakest normal attacks (i.e. not worth for Spirited Parfait). If you can, switch to Torim or Aero during a boss' downtime, such as when Dragon drops its head, Deus showing its core etc. and perform Shout then Spiral to their weak points. In order to maximize their damage, try to land as many full-charged Shout-Spiral as you can.

14★ Torim is more durable with higher HP and Def and less PP usage. 14★ Aero has higher ATK, upgraded Aero Spriral (wider attack area) and Aero Slash (stronger). There are little reasons to use Torim, so the numbers listed on here are based on Aero.

Torim and Aero are currently having limited uses as they are outclassed by their glass cannon peers: Synchro and Popple; and fellow avian, Rappy.

Personality.pngDocile (おりこうさん) 121% damage on enemies with a status effect. Since EQ bosses does not get status effect like normal enemies, the boost will be useless there.
Personality.pngElite (エリート) 14★ only. Combines Diligent and Docile, as well as having increased rare item drop rate.

  • Suitable for all player skills
  • Easy-to-use Boss killer
  • High ATK
  • Stab is a low-risk, high damage PA
  • Weakest normal attack
  • Third lowest DEF

If only Hold exists, then the pet will do less if you don't hold the button. The number in bracket is the restored PP per second, disregarding natural PP regen.
3 Overall DPS Rating: The greater the number, the greater the pet's DPS potential is. This is calculated by using Glance of Darkness with Rykros Staff +30, during standard case scenario: Phantom sub, enemy is weak to pet's element, enemy isn't moving, a pair of 110% damage parfaits, using PA to deplete 200PP, then use Normal Attacks to get back 200PP (boosted natural PP regen and attack PP regen due to Phantom sub is calculated).

Cery / Popple (サリィ/ポップル)

PetCeryIcon.png
PetPoppleIcon.png
Cery / Popple

A long-range support pet, best at taking down a large quantity of enemies. They are risky to use against bosses that moves too much because its main DPS attack tends to miss. However, their easy-to-use nature allows you to utilize Zanverse together with their attacks.

Cery and Popple can jam. Pressing a PA button at the same time when they lose target will cause them to skip the said PA, but will still cost PP. Mind the timing between PAs.

14★ Cery is more durable with higher HP and Def and less PP usage. 14★ Popple has higher ATK and upgraded Popple Plode (chargeable and stronger hit, but lower DPS). There are little reasons to use Cery (even less than Wanda-Jinga or Torim-Aero), so the numbers listed on here are based on Popple.

Personality.pngSerene (やさしい) Heals previously summoned pet HP by a certain amount after a certain time. I am uncertain for the purpose of this ability since unsummoned pet gains HP relatively quick. Does not affect stunned pets.
Personality.pngPop (ポップ) 14★ only. Combines Adept and Serene, as well as having increased rare item drop rate.
Strength Weakness
  • Suitable for all player skills
  • Long-range attacks
  • Stays close to player almost all time, reducing risk of getting hit
  • High PP regain from normal attack
  • Has Jellen (lowers ATK by 15%) on its most powerful DPS attack
  • Most powerful DPS attack costs a measly 5PP
  • Most powerful and widest area attack
  • Has a homing attack that also knocks enemy down
  • Has an attack that clusters enemy
  • Highly usable with Zanverse to increase output further
  • Prone to jamming
  • Weak DEF
  • Beside homing attack, all projectiles are slow
  • Cery recovers long from stun

Maron (マロン)

PetMaronIcon.png Maron

A defensive pet with self-explosion ability. Maron is best used when your enemy are overly aggressive, like Dragon. Once was popular pet before damage cap was implemented. With damage cap in place, Maron Strike's capped 1M damage does lower DPS that its required setup. Using Maron for Strike attack only will lower their DPS a lot; consider using the strike as a bonus damage and focus on using Curse and Break as primary DPS. Along with its counterpart, Melon, they see limited use outside fighting bosses.

Maron's size has 3 stages, which powers up their Strike. The 1st stage is default; Maron will always be on 1st stage if you summon them. The 2nd stage is reached after 3 hits, in which Maron becomes big. The 3rd stage is reached after 9 hits, in which Maron becomes even bigger with flames coming out of their body. You have 15 seconds to perform Maron strike before Maron explodes on your hand and reduce your HP to a fraction.

  • Requires more than 1 Maron to properly take advantage of its suicide attack
  • Recovers long from stun

Rappy (ラッピー)

PetRappyIcon.png Maron

An all-rounder pet, very friendly to newbies, although obtaining their eggs is not newbie friendly (Rare drop from XH Deus, Dragon, Omega Luther). Rappy invokes the Magikarp Power: its stat before L120 are not impressive, and has 250 points to fill on each stat of Pet Plus; Level 100 and 120 Rappy has attack differences of almost 400 points. They notably have strongest normal attacks, albeit smaller hit box. This is both blessing and a curse since it is more accurate to hit a weak point, but easier to miss moving enemies. They are also the only pet to have a healing PA.

Rappy is the best pet to abuse Braver sub's Attack Advance. Stacking Attack Advance and Spirited Parfait turns Rappy's normal attack into a PA, essentially allowing you to win boss fights by just holding Normal Attack Button.

If only Hold exists, then the pet will do less if you don't hold the button. The number in bracket is the restored PP per second, disregarding natural PP regen.
3 Overall DPS Rating: The greater the number, the greater the pet's DPS potential is. This is calculated by using Glance of Darkness with Rykros Staff +30, during standard case scenario: Phantom sub, enemy is weak to pet's element, enemy isn't moving, a pair of 110% damage parfaits, using PA to deplete 200PP, then use Normal Attacks to get back 200PP (boosted natural PP regen and attack PP regen due to Phantom sub is calculated).

Viola (ヴィオラ)

PetViolaIcon.png Viola

A pet that is best for soloing, as it has an effective hate generation, unlike the Launcher PA Fake Silhouette. Bosses will even more likely to target Viola rather than other people in an EQ. Viola's regular PA are similar to Wanda, albeit lacking a reliable area attack. Viola's stats are not very impressive, and this including their defense. Using Viola Change, however, increases their defense and changes how their PA works: exerting high-powered damage, high DPS, and enormous hit box in expense of slower animation and sluggish PP regeneration.

Viola is the signature pet of Manaka.

Synchro (シンクロウ)

PetSynchroIcon.png Synchro

The pet for taking down bosses quickly. Has the highest DPS among all pets, but is hardest to use, and get stunned quickly. Synchro's setup requires you to have superfluous amount of PP (above 150, 185 would be ideal), them to be summoned after a stunned pet (best using Melon); after that, you need to learn to use different PA in order to power up Synchro Geki. Synchro is the best pet to use with Bouncer sub and good to take down Magatsu and Luther.

Notably, Syncro's PA names are left transliterated rather than translated. The translated name would be: Slash (Zan), Fists (Ken), Kick (Kyaku), Sever (Dan), and Beat (Geki).

Redran (レドラン)

PetRedranIcon.png Redran

A long-range pet that can tear multi-part enemies, such as Ragne and Vibras, quickly. On the reverse side, they also can tear down Redran quickly. Redran has the highest ATK among all pets, but also the lowest def of all pets, with about 120 HP less than Synchro and only 60 DEF better.

Redran, along with Cery and Popple, can jam. Pressing a PA button at the same time when they lose target will cause them to skip the said PA, but will still cost PP. Mind the timing between PAs.

I believe Redran is a portmanteau of Laser Dragon (ーザードラ), thus their name should be Ladran (read: leɪdræn). Would be too difficult to read, though.

Redran has minimal use on EQ outside seasonal and defense, especially because they tend to run out of PP quickly. In addition, Redran is hard-pressed to secure the number of kills it needed in UH fields, further hampering its usage.

Personality Description
Personality.pngRowdy (あばれんぼう) Raises damage by 2% for each enemy killed by Redran; capped at 50% or 150% damage total. The bonus will be reset upon entering campship and unsummoning Redran. This would be the preferred personality.
Personality.pngHawkish (とうそうしん) Raises damage depending on number of enemies near the Redran. 106% for 1-4 enemies, 112% for 5 enemies and above. Since Redran is a long-range pet that has a low durability, this skill becomes counterproductive for its survival, specially since it does not do much in boss EQs.
Personality.pngRock (ロック) 14★ only. Combines Rowdy and Hawkish, as well as having increased rare item drop rate.
Strength Weakness
  • Highest possible damage multiplier (150%) from personality
  • Decimates enemy with multiple parts quickly
  • High-powered normal attacks
  • High ATK
  • Recall attack has invulnerability frames
  • Unsuitable for newbies
  • Prone to jamming
  • Beside recall, all other attacks are slow
  • Low HP
  • Low DEF
  • Not much use against bosses that don't have multiple parts
  • Little use during Boss EQ

2 Normal Attack DPS Rating: The DPS rating of Normal Attacks. Hold is the DPS if you hold the normal attack button. Auto is the number if you let the pet attack freely. If only Hold exists, then the pet will do less if you don't hold the button. The number in bracket is the restored PP per second, disregarding natural PP regen.
3 Overall DPS Rating: The greater the number, the greater the pet's DPS potential is. This is calculated by using Glance of Darkness with Rykros Staff +30, during standard case scenario: Phantom sub, enemy is weak to pet's element, enemy isn't moving, a pair of 110% damage parfaits, using PA to deplete 200PP, then use Normal Attacks to get back 200PP (boosted natural PP regen and attack PP regen due to Phantom sub is calculated).

The damage taken can be mitigated if the character is invulnerable, e.g. during Mirage Step. However, your character is not invulnerable during a knocked-down state. (leading to something I call "Summoner Blues") 10

SuSkillAlterEgoHarmony.png Alter Ego Harmony Requires L85 Su. Main Class only. Requires no SP. Grants character super armor and status immunity during Alter Ego.

Dear Master Abuse

This is technically cheating but apparently Sega has not patch this, so to each their own. Dear Master, as noted, transfers the killing blow to pet and gives you invulnerability. Note that, it delivers a killing blow to the pet, which means the blow can be mitigated. There are ways to mitigate this killing blow, which gives you a free invulnerability:

  • Pet has high enough defense to withstand the killing blow (e.g. with Steadfast Roll)
  • During Pet's invulnerable or semi invulnerable moment, such as:
    • Holding Maron/Melon during Strike
    • Thrown Maron/Melon during Strike
    • Synchro Kyaku
  • Triggering Maron/Melon's Fierce personality that recovers HP (by extension, also their Cute personality)
  • Killing blow is negated with Pet Photon Barrier

This will allow you to counter and subdue aggressive bosses like Phaleg or Omega Masquerade.

Technics

There are few technics essential to have. You can obtain them as drops, buy from player shops, or trade them on Excube Shop at L17 for 20 Excubes each.

Icon Name Description
TechResta.png Resta Heals all allied units in an area. Pet will request a Resta sympathy if they have a low HP. Either craft of Resta is fine.
TechAnti.png Anti Restores status effect of all allied units in an area. A full-charged Anti lasts about 5 seconds on the field, you can use this as a preemptive move if you see a status move is incoming, like Elder's ice meteor. Preferred to have Concentrated craft (reduces charge time).
TechShifta.png Shifta Raises base attack power of all allied units in an area. Pet will request Shifta sympathy during battle. Pet needs to have the Shifta buff for increased attack. Having Shifta buff on the character is irrelevant to pet's damage. Preferred to have Multi craft (more ticks).
TechDeband.png Deband Raises base defense power of all allied units in an area. Deband is not as essential as Shifta, but is a key skill to have for Bo sub. Preferred to have Multi craft (more ticks).
TechZanverse.png Zanverse Inflicts additional 20% Wind damage when the pet is within the Zanverse radius. Best combined with long-range pets like Popple. Zanversed pet will affect the DoT given to enemy, as long as the pet is on the Zanverse area. Preferred to have Concentrated craft (reduces charge time).
TechMegiverse.png Megiverse Restores HP equal to 25% of damages inflicted if the pet is within the Megiverse radius. Note that since pet does the damage, character will not benefit from the skill at all, unless Potential.pngGlance of Darkness is active. Either craft of Megiverse is fine.
TechSafoie.png Safoie Type-0 Must have Type-0 Craft (available at start). A movement PA that helps you travel faster. It also tracks enemy's height, and has a lot of hits to help you escape from Fhange (that red-prison thing which traps you in an E-Trial).

Part 5: Class Combination

Summoner has 4 viable sub-classes: Braver, Fighter, Bouncer, and Phantom. Their usage is depending on your play style. All multipliers listed are not counting High Level Bonus, which is a must-take. The "Damage Rating" stated is based on critical builds, whose explanation can be found on Class Damage Calculation

  Part 5 Objectives, you will be able to:
  • Elaborate every pros and cons of each sub class
  • Argue that SuFi is NOT the best nor only sub for Summoner

  If you are new to Summoner, stick to SuBr. As your playing experience with Su increases, you can decide whether to use SuBo, SuFi, SuPh or stay as SuBr.

Summoner-Braver (SuBr)

Recommended for all skill level. SuBr has the easiest usage, but relatively lacks output. This is compensated by Attack Advance which, on several pets, provides a PA-powered normal attacks with 0 PP usage. This contributes to its beginner-friendly nature as newbies tend to use normal attacks a lot. SuBr is best when fighting bosses whose weak point is exposed for a long time to warrant Weak Stance activation, such as Dragon and Persona.

Property Description
Damage rating 136.78% (Average Stance), 161.65% (Weak Stance)
PP management Normal
Ease of use Easy
Best compatibility Jinga, Viola, Synchro, Redran, Rappy. These are pets with the highest normal attack DPS. If your Rappy has Spirited Parfait (はりきりパフェ), you can just use normal attacks since it will become Rappy's top DPS move, being only slightly (~5%) less powerful than Rappy End with S Charge.
Usage note With a strong normal attack pets, Near Auto Target, Attack Advance, and Spirited Parfait, you can just wave your takt once and cruise through a Free Field without using PAs.
Skills Description
Average Stance 126.5% damage, +25% critical rate
Weak Stance 149.5% weak-point damage, +25% critical rate
S Charge (on Brave and Weak Stance) 110% damage for charge skills.
Eligible skills are Popple Plode, Torim/Aero Spiral, and Rappy End
Attack Advance 135% damage from normal attacks
J Reversal Cover Restores 20% HP upon reversal. This skill oftentimes a lifesaver. If you are using the Brave tree for a Braver weapon, you might want to pass this skill.

Summoner-Fighter (SuFi)

Recommended for experienced players. SuFi has the highest stance multiplier and less likely need to switch stance, but offers little compensation once PP runs out and has lowest critical rate (means your base damage will be lower, requires Effort Symbol Su to mitigate). While theoretically SuFi is significantly more powerful than SuBr, in practice Brave Stance SuFi is about 10% stronger than Average Stance SuBr due to the lower base damage. SuFi however, has the highest advantage if you want to abuse Dear Master.

Property Description
Damage rating (P Keeper Tech Ring) 150.05% (Brave Stance), 170.52% (Wise Stance)
Damage rating (Effort Ring) 149.47% (Brave Stance), 169.86% (Wise Stance)
Damage rating (Effort Ring, All Slayer) 167.41% (Brave Stance), 190.24% (Wise Stance)
PP management Normal
Ease of use Moderate
Usage note Abusing Dear Master on overly-aggressive bosses allows you to activate Slayer skills perpetually.
Skills Description
Brave Stance 154% front-attack damage (135% on rear-attack), +25% critical rate.
The Brave Stance depends on the point of the part pet attacks compared to the enemy's body.
E.g.: Brave Stance works when attacking Dragon's front leg from any position (including from rear!), but will not work when attacking dragon's hind leg from any position (including from the front!).
Wise Stance 175.5% rear-attack damage (100% on front attack), +25% critical rate.
Chase Advance Plus 115% damage to target with certain status effect.
Pets that inflicts status effects are: Wanda/Jinga (Shock: Stun), Viola (Stamp: Stun), Maron/Melon (Strike: Stun), Synchro (Dan: Bind, Geki: Stun).
Popple's Jellen does not count.
PP Slayer Additional 200 ATK when PP is below 50%.
Adrenaline Shifta and Deband is now 30 seconds per tick. Applies to pet too.
Halfline and Deadline Slayers Additional 150ATK + 100 ATK if character's HP is 25% or less.

Summoner-Bouncer (SuBo)

Recommended for experienced players. SuBo has lower multiplier than SuFi, but has a superior PP regeneration mechanism. They are the only sub-class that allows Summonner to reach 100% critical without external help (means your base damage is all-time highest). While it does not have high multiplier compared to Fi, its PP regeneration is more than enough to make it up, even with only Elemental Stance; this means that you will need to get used to PA constantly. Unfortunately, using SuBo means you require extra palette slot to accommodate Fields, and you will be required to maintain your Shifta and Deband. SuBo is best when fighting bosses whose break point is exposed for a long time to warrant Break Stance activation, such as Luther, Magatsu, Dragon, and Persona.

Property Description
Damage rating 142.78% (Elemental Stance), 161.68% (Break Stance)
PP management Easy
Ease of use Hard
Best compatibility Synchro. Use Rykros Staff for maximum effectiveness.
Usage note If you need to create elemental pets to take advantage of Elemental Stance, Wanda or Jinga would be the best choice, followed by Aero.
If you don't have elemental Pets, SuBo is less effective on multi-elemental weakness EQs, such as the Seasonal EQs.
Skills Description
Elemental Stance 132% damage on elemental weakness hit (110% on normal), +25% critical rate
Break Stance 149.5% damage on breakable parts (100% on normal), +25% critical rate
Critical Field Critical Rate +30%
Elemental PP Restorate Field Restores 3 PP every normal attack if you hit an elemental weakness.
Field Remain Pet needs to be inside the field to have its effect. This skill allows pet to exit the field for a brief time and retains the field's effect.
Shifta Air Attack Boost 105% damage during Shifta when attacking mid-air. All of pets' attacks and PAs are counted as mid-air atacks.
Deband PP Restorate Restores 5 PP during Deband when using a normal attack.
Somehow, Potential.pngGlance of Darkness counts as a normal attack and will restore 5 PP if the character has Deband.
J Reversal PP Gain Recovers 20% PP during just reversal
Bouncer Mag Feed your mag with DEX, and S-ATK and T-ATK will also get filled at 1:1 ratio.

Summoner-Phantom (SuPh)

Recommended for experienced players, or once you get Ph unlocked and leveled to 85. SuPh has high multiplier, high PP regeneration, and no stances, making it easy to use. In every way, compared to other subs, Ph stands superior as an all rounder. However, it requires 200 PP to be effective, 2 level 75 classes to unlock Ph, and Ph weaponry to sustain its leveling since Ph cannot have a subclass.

Property Description
Damage rating 160.26%
PP management Easy
Ease of use Easy
Usage note The only sub class that allows easier use of Redran.
Skills Description
All Attack Bonus Ph 135% damage when using pets
Photon Stream 110% damage if PP is at least 200. Comes from 5% * 200 = 10%
Critical Stream Critical rate increases by 20% of max PP. Critical damage increases by 3% of max PP.
This skill caps rate at 60% (300 PP) and damage at 5% (167 PP). At 200 PP, your critical rate should be 40%.
Phantom PP Restorate Increases natural PP regeneration by 30% and Attack PP restoration by 30%
Tech Short Charge Shortens technic charge by 50%, and lowers PP cost by 30%, but also lowers its damage. This is useful to quickly cast Zanverse, Megiverse, Resta, and Shifta. This skill used to lower the damage of GLance of Darkness, but it has been patched.
PP High Up +20 max PP. This helps to attain the 200PP requirement, if not surpass it.
Sprint Tech Charge Allows faster movement while charging technics. This is not required, but can be useful especially if you don't use crafted techs.
Phantom Mag Feed your mag with DEX, and S-ATK, R-ATK, and T-ATK will also get filled at 1:1 ratio.

Techer-Summoner (TeSu)

Recommended for Techer who dislikes using Wands. TeSu allows you to buff allies while capable of dishing out damage from a safe distance. However, it is always a good idea to have a Wand as a side weapon. Lavis Cannon is a recommended side arm due to its usage simplicity and almost make Heavy Hammer unneeded.

Property Description
Shifta Advance
Shifta Critical
Shifta Strike
Increases the potency of Shifta, granting it a total of 24.625% more base ATK, along with 20% critical rate and 110% damage.
Deband Advance

Resta Advance 120% Resta healing.
Rebirth Bonus Applies Shifta and Deband at maximum duration to a revived target.
Tech Up 1
Tech Up 2

Territory Burst Horizontal area of effect increase for support skills: Shifta, Deband, Resta, Anti, Megiverse, Zanverse, Zondeel.
Wide Support Further horizontal and vertical area of effect increase for support skills: Shifta, Deband, Resta, Anti.
Territory PP Save -7 PP usage for support skills: Shifta, Deband, Resta, Anti, Megiverse, Zanverse, Zondeel
Wand Gear Adds Wand Gear that causes Tech Explosion. Wand Hits are based on SATK, while Tech Explosions are based on TATK. Both are considered o be Strike damage.
Wand Lovers Activate to maximize Wand Gear and increases normal attack Strike damage by 140%, but causes Mirage Escape to become Step when wielding Wand. Applies to Tech Explosion, but not to Heavy Hammer.
Wand Reactor Adds 40% of Wand's base TATK to SATK.
Wand Gear Element Activate to add 15% chance to inflict status effect depending on Wand's attribute.

Part 6: The Critical Build

According to the damage calculator, Summoners have a hard time maintaining average damage since pet's minimum damage starts at 70%, as opposed to other weapon's 90% when using a 13★. Adding as much critical as possible allows pet to reach higher average damage, without compensating any aspects (maybe that 10 PP from 2 Spirita Candy Sticks).

  Part 6 Objectives, you will be able to:
  • Maximize pet's critical hit ratio
  • Capitalize on Deadly Parfait's high damage multiplier

Recommended Candies

These candies are arranged from the highest priority to the lowest. Do check Collection File every list update. At the moment of, 14★ parfait are not really useful compared to their 13★ counterpart.

Takt

For most of the time, sticking to your regular Takt is fine, but higher rarity Takts has additional effects. Takts are really handy, for one, it does not benefit a +35 grind, not even Rykros Staff.

Potential.pngGlance of Darkness provides 2 things during Alter Ego: First, it automatically fulfill Sympathy if the Sympathy window runs out. For the Resta Sympathy, it will automatically recovers about 50% of pet HP.
Second, it launches a 2000 power projectile attack (2500 for Glance of Darkness Plus) at every PA during Alter Ego that relies on T-ATK of the character. The faster the PA, the more extra damage you can do; it roughly adds 10-20% to overall damage. Best combined with Synchro.
TaktGurenNoYomimusubi.png Guren no Yomimusubi 14★ Zieg Trade (Homura Upgrade) Potential.pngCrimson Flame Melody grants 102% damage and further 103% damage when attacking elemental weak enemy; total damage is 105.06%. Automatically applies Shifta every 14 seconds to character and pet.
You can obtain this takt by getting Homura takt from Badge Shop (Weapon Badge 2019), grind it to +35, and upgrade it on Zieg.
Name roughly means "Crimson Lotus Underground Pact".

Boost and PP restore has 2 minutes cooldown. This works the boost average to be 100.75% (based on an 8 minute EQ), making your actual damage boost about 105.7875%. Being marginally better than Guren, only get it if you have no use of Lightsream Weapon.

Rings

If you plan to use more than 1 L Skill Rings, then it is recommended that you use 12★ units. If you play multiple classes, do not put near auto-target on your unit, as it might be wasteful.

  Pet attacks are always Tech, regardless of activated Switch skills. This necessitates Tech-based rings.

Icon Name Description
RingCStrikeTIcon.png R/C Strike Tech +20
R/Cストライク法撃
+20% critical rate, 103% critical damage. Use this unless you have Fi sub. Grinding is a must.
RingPKeeperTech.png R/P Keeper Tech +20

103% damage if HP is above 75%. Use this for Fi sub. Grinding is a must.
RingEffortRingSu.png R/Effort Symbol Ring +20
R/エフォートシンボルサモナー

RingNearAutoTargetIcon.png L/Near Auto Target
L/ニアオートターゲット
Pet will automatically attack enemies with 1 swing. Using recall skills (like Jinga Assault), will cancel the effect until next takt swing.
RingAtomizerLovers.png L/Atomizer Lover
L/アトマイザーラバーズ
Increases usage speed when using Atomizer and grants invulnerability while doing so. Grinding is optional to increase the potency of Atomizer (up to 160%).
RingTechCParrying.png L/C Tech Parry +20
L/テックCパリング
Provides 0.6s of frontal Just Guard when charging a technique using a Tech weapon (Rod, Talis, Wand, Jet Boots, Takt). This is optional, but can be handy if you master the rather lenient timing. Should you decide to acquire this, grinding is a must.

Units

If you don't have the resource to obtain this, stick to Ray units that you can obtain from exchanging Weapon Badge 2019 on the Badge and Memory Shop.

If you have the resource, you are free to use any units you like, and fit it with as much affix as you like. Ideally, you should have ~100 TATK on each unit (including the base unit's TATK), 1200+ HP total, and 185+ PP total (200 PP for Ph Sub). Extra HP prevents accidental deaths during Alter Ego till you can obtain the Alter Ego Harmony; the extra PP is required if you are to utilize Synchro or aiming for Ph's maximum damage bonus.

Do note that the trend of PSO2 as of Chapter 5 is to put high ATK boss which drops high powered weapon, thus raising HP and PP is more beneficial than overly raising TATK.

Critical Logic

By default, pet's minimum damage is roughly 70%, while Critical hits in PSO2 automatically put your damage to 100%. Thus, without any enhancements, your mean damage using a pet is:

(100% + 70%) / 2 = 85%

However, at any circumstances, you have at least 5% critical rate, which means 95% of time you deal average 85% damage, while the 5% of the time, you deal 100% of the damage.

95% * 85% + 5% * 100% = 85.75%

In other words, without any critical enhancements, averagely, you only do 85.75% damage.

Lets say you are using a Class Stance Critical (25%, assuming either Br or Bo sub) and a Critical Strike Ring Tech (20%), you will have a total of 50% Critical Rate (5% + 25% + 20%). Ignoring Critical Damage bonus from ring, your average damage will be:

50% * 85% + 50% * 100% = 92.5%

By boosting your critical rate to 50%, you gain 6.75% more damage (7.87%, if relative to 85%).

What if you use all the critical option available without outside aid? Assuming Br sub, you already have 50% critical with ring (5% base + 25% stance + 20% ring). Add 14% from 2 Critical Candy Sticks and 20% from 2 Support Rolls. This will add up to 84% critical rate. Your average damage will be:

16% * 85% + 84% * 100% = 97.6%

You are almost 12% more powerful than a non-critical build (14.82%, if relative to 85%).

Example, a SuBr uses Deadly Parfait and maxed Critical Strike Tech ring: 84% critical rate and 103% * 110% = 113.3% damage during a critical hit (3% from Ring, 10% from Deadly Parfait). Their average damage will be:

16% * 85% + 84% * 113.3% = 108.77%

At more than 80% critical rate, the Deadly Parfait is more powerful than Super Complete Parfait (The damage rate with Super Complete Parfait alone will be 108.13%). And, with outside aid like Shifta Critical and Critical Field, pretty much 100% critical is guaranteed, bumping the overall damage to 113.3%

Class Damage Calculation

Class Average Damage Critical Damage Critical Rate
SuBr 85% * 108% = 91.80% 108% * 103% = 111.24% 39% + 25% + 20% = 84%
SuFi (P Keeper) 85% * 103% = 87.55% 103% * 100% = 103.00% 39% + 25% = 64%
SuFi (Effort) 85% * 101% = 85.85% 101% * 100% = 101.00% 39% + 25% + 10% = 74%
SuBo 85% * 105% = 89.25% 105% * 103% = 108.15% 39% + 25% + 20% + 20% = ~100%
SuPh 85% * 100% = 85.00% 105% * 103% = 108.15% 39% + 40% + 20% = 99%
Class Base Damage Main Stance Second Stance
SuBr 16% * 91.80% + 84% * 111.24% = 108.13% 136.78% 161.65%

SuFi (Effort) 26% * 85.85% + 74% * 101.00% = 97.06% 149.47% 169.86%
SuBo 0% * 89.25% + 100% * 108.15% = 108.15% 142.76% 161.68%

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What units / armors should I use?

If you just started the game and have no idea on affixing a unit:

  • You can get 1 Weapons Barrier (サブ/ウェポンズバリア) from clearing Koffie's quest Training Quest Certification (練習クエスト履修証明). You can utilize all 3 characters to obtain multiple copies of it. Until L75, this is the best unit you can obtain.
  • You can get 3 Stella Walls (サブ/ステラウォール) from Lachesis the Title Counter when you have 2 L75 classes.
  • You can get Ray units — Circu Ray, Circa Ray, Circ Ray — from Badge and Memory Shop. You need 150 Weapons Badge 2019 for each of them.

What should I use against ____?

Wanda or Jinga is always your the first pet that you should use when you are testing new boss or content. They have no real weakness and is suitable for every possible scenario.

Wanda or Jinga?

This depends on your playstyle. Wanda has better defense and more efficient Slicer, while Jinga has overall better DPS.

Cery or Popple?

Popple is overall better since it has Charged Popple Plode, a wide area attack; and its main DPS move, Popple Curse, only cost 5 PP.

Torim or Aero?

Torim has slightly better defense, although it doesn't help much. Aero's Charged Shout Spiral 2 have wider area of attack and less PP cost. Since the bulk of Aero's DPS is from Shout Spiral (using 2 seconds Charged Shout Spiral is already better than Shout Slash), having it easier to hit is a big plus.

Maron or Melon?

Neither are practical for mobbing, so let's assume it's for bossing. Maron is more useful if the boss is overly aggressive and have high attack, like Omega Masquerade, Episode 4 Phaleg, and the inhabitants of the solo XQ Phantom. Melon is more useful if the boss isn't aggressive, and is even more useful of both if you have both a 14★ Melon and a Rykros Staff. Conditions aside, Maron needs to take 9 hits to maximize its Strike PA and it will be incapacitated after. Melon needs only 2 hits to maximize its Strike PA, but if you hold the PA button after the throwing animation, you can catch Melon back, like a yo-yo. Both require you to use their Curse attack once every 10 seconds.

Should I have multiple elemental pets?

It's generally not recommended to, especially if you have limited resources.

What about this ____ Parfait?

  • Some parfait have niche use, and isn't compliant to the more general use.
  • Any parfait that requires you to have certain % of PP is not recommended since your PP fluctuates easily.
  • Any parfait that requires pet to have low HP is not recommended since you'll want pets to have full HP.
  • Daredevil is not recommended because it greatly reduces PP efficiency. It is better for you to PA more often than using normal more often.

What is the best parfait combination?

One that fits your play style. I refrain from naming best parfait combination because that would kill experimentation.

Do S Eggs have any difference than regular eggs, apart from color?

No. They are akin to having a shiny Pokemon.
