Summoning (召喚, Shōkan?) is an ability type in Final Fantasy Record Keeper , and part of the Magic category.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

The Summoning school is focused on calling summoned monsters into battle to various effects, mostly attacking enemies. Compared to Black Magic, the other primary offensive spellcasting ability school, Summons have higher power and strike all enemies, but access is less common and Summoning abilities have fewer charges. Additionally Summons typically max out at three hits, while higher-tier Black Magic can hit four times. In general this makes Summons more suitable for fighting groups of enemies, while Black Magic is better for single enemies.

Notable abilities in the Summoning school include: Phoenix, which damages an enemy and revives a KO'd party member, if there are any; Carbuncle, which casts Reflect on the party; Orthros, which deals eight hits of damage to a single target and can inflict Blind; and the Rank 6 abilities Valigarmanda and Neo Bahamut.
