FFXIV - Disciples of Magic - Summoner
The beast tribes of Eorzea worship and summon forth beings known as primals, among which are Ifrit, Garuda, and Titan. Yet what is a god to one man is a demon to another, for the city-states of Eorzea see these beings as a grave threat to their collective survival.
In times immemorial, there lived mages who had not only the power to summon the primals, but also the means to transmute the primals' essences, thus binding them to their will. Known simply as summoners, the existence of these men and women and their arcane art have been all but lost to the ages.


Summoner is a new job in FFXIV: A Realm Reborn and very little is known about it as of yet. It is known that Summoner will have miniature versions of the primals called Egis. Stay tuned for more details on abilities, traits, materia and equipment.



An Arcanist can become a Summoner by equipping the Soul of the Summoner item after completing the first quest. The details for this quest are below.

Quest NPC Location Conditions
??? ??? Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks, Arcanists' Guild ACN 30, THM 15

For each quest you complete, you will be rewarded with a new ability, while the latter quests will also reward you with artifact (AF) armour that is shown in the screenshot above. Below is a list of abilities that the Summoner job can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available.

Abilities



Abilities are actions that the Summoner can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available. Actions used in a combo will generate additional damage and effects. All Summoner actions are exclusive to that job.

PvP Actions & Traits


PVP actions and traits are skills which can only be used in PvP battles. They can be purchased using Action Points (AP), which is earned via fightng in PvP battles. In general there are three potencies of each action and you can upgrade them by spending more AP on them. For more on PvP, visit our PvP pages. For an Summoner we recommend you go for Intelligence with the traits.

Besides needing to be a level 30 Arcanist and level 15 Thaumaturge, you also have to complete the level 30 Arcanist class quest before the summoner quest will become available.

Shouldn't the Summoner, Arcanist, and Scholar have the abilities of their summons listed as well? I have not found them anywhere else on the page. I found some of them on the Final Fanasy Wiki, but it took quite a bit of digging.
