Summoner FAQ

This section specifically covers common questions regarding various gameplay interactions, along with other miscellaneous questions that are asked.


Which Egi do I use?

Your general priority is to use Summon III Icon Summon III Ifrit-Egi for 1-2 target combat scenarios, while Summon Icon Summon Garuda-Egi is reserved for 3+ target combat scenarios. Summon II Icon Summon II Titan-Egi has special case uses, either to utilize Earthen Armor Icon Earthen Armor for self-survivability purposes or Mountain Buster Icon Mountain Buster for niche AoE damage opportunities.


Why does Demi-Phoenix require specific summon methods?

When you activate Firebird Trance Icon Firebird Trance and Demi-Phoenix spawns, Demi-Phoenix will automatically cast Everlasting Flight Icon Everlasting Flight immediately. This interaction is unavoidable, and while occurring, Demi-Phoenix is unable to queue a Scarlet Flame Icon Scarlet Flame proc.


What is the x-x-x notation referring to with Demi-Primals?

This notation is simply to indicate how many GCDs are cast in between each Akh Morn Icon Akh Morn or Revelation Icon Revelation cast during your Demi-Primal rotation.


What is pet ghosting?

Pet ghosting is when a queued action does not confirm in game. This commonly occurs with Demi-Primal actions that may attempt to cast at the very last second of its duration but do not resolve in time to be confirmed. Ghosting also commonly occurs with Egi actions, where Egi-Assault commands or Aetherpact Icon Aetherpact and Enkindle Icon Enkindle actions are not resolved before Demi-Primals are summoned.


Do pets receive party buffs?

All of your pets will mirror buffs applied to you, with the exception of Dragon Sight Icon Dragon Sight.


Do DoTs still tick for damage while bosses are untargetable?

Generally speaking, no. Very few bosses in FFXIV allow for DoTs to still tick for damage while they are untargetable.


How do I change my Bahamut size?

You can alter the size of Demi-Bahamut on your screen by typing the /bahamutsize command and then inputting small, medium, or large.

Example: /bahamutsize small would reduce Demi-Bahamut to the smallest size possible.


How do I glamour my Egi?

You can change the glamour of your Egi pets by typing the /egiglamour command and specifying "egi name" for the Egi you would like to change. Next, type either "x carbuncle" to glamour the respective carbuncle, or type nothing to remove a current glamour option.

Example: /egiglamour "Ifrit-Egi" "Ruby Carbuncle" would alter the appearance of Ifrit-Egi into Ruby Carbuncle.
