New ways of Summoning

I just checked the wiki and the cloud isn't a summoner weapon. BUT the Lunar Portal Staff and the Rainbow Crystal Staff are.


Uh... uh... Well clearly the lunar portal is just an opening and there is some eldritch terror shooting beams through it ;)

And the Rainbow Crystal is totally sentient. :p

:D

I really like the monstrous summons idea!

A few ideas for monstrous staffs:

Ogre Staff
31 Summon Damage
4% Critical chance
Insane Knockback
4 Mana per second
Summons a ogre that swings a large club at enemies
Dropped from the goblin invasion

Arachnid Staff
47 Summon Damage
7% Critical chance
9 Mana per second
Weak Knockback
Summons a massive tarantula that climbs on back walls and inflicts venom.
Crafting:

Twilight Draconis Staff
74 Summon Damage
4% Critical chance
11 Mana per second
Weak Knockback
Summons a massive winged dragon to breath shadowflames on your enemies, inflicts the Shadowflame debuff.

Edit: Maybe monstrous summons could attack where the players cursor is?

Still, it is a stationary summon that lasts a reasonable amount of time.

You summon a cloud that just sits there, can be summoned anywhere, continues to do damage with the user not having to deploy it again for at least a minute... yet sounds like a summon to me.

Unlike the magnet sphere which disappeares after a few seconds.

Great ideas! The aiming cursor would probably best be relative to the summon, some would work better like this, others would work better choosing their own targets, like the ogre as I imagined it.
