Lost Ark Summoner Build Options and Tips

Overflowing Commune builds rely on the summons, and increase the duration and damage of the summons. She has four summon skills, two additional dealing skills, and one buff skill. Master Summoner builds rely on their identity, and increase the damage of the summoner’s identity. The Summoner's own identity Ancient Spirit is the core of the high summoner build. Skill combos consist of personal attack buff, identity deal, and identity supply. She has two attack rate buff skills, one critical rate buff skill, four identity supply skills, and one additional dealing skill.  

Speaking of the build stats, the summoner has only one dodge skill, swiftness can be important for its survival and specialization is essential for her deal. For engravings, which is quite typical like Sorceress class, you can use Hit Master, Grudge, Keen Blunt Weapon, High Summoner, and Cursed Doll. Other gear pieces and items used in the build is also depending on your Lost Ark gold and target.
