skeleton warriors rock the house! nothin beats 'em!
that bein said nishruu/hakeashar is a fun summon when spell casters are around.

without a doubt skeletal warrior takes the prize. they are almost immune to magic except death spell they last 8hrs, hasted a couple of them can bring down a party of mages and fighters. They dont turn on you...they cannot be charmed or confused...shall i go on...

Call Woodland Being (druid spell). The Nymph have a lot of spells and she is also beautiful (as opposed to an Earth Elemental or a Skeleton Warrior). Image

Wizards Eye

It can take enormous amount of damage and is almost resistant to every spell (dispel magic seams to be the only thing that works). It's great for using as a diversion while attacking with missile weapons.

It is also great for exploring dungeons

Yep I will have to go with wizards eye it is by far the most powerful summoning and it is really useful not just for scouting.
it can be unsummoned/dispelled but not die it has recived more than 1200 in damage and still only been badly injured. some say that they have killed it but I don't believe that it may have been unsummoned upon impact but it did not say in the bar "wizard's eye dead"
good spell a solo sorc. best friend together with skeleton w. (though they can be airheads)
This weeks health tips:
Don't eat sharp objects it can be the cause of 7 out of 10 bad stomages.

Best: no summonings! Why contract out your killings?

From a roleplaying aspect, it's somewhat hypocritical for a (good) priest or a druid to sit there and watch their allies being minced as fodder, and then to be able to do it again. Wouldn't the big old bears or whatever know that you have a reputation for killing them all off when you ask for their help, and decide to snub you?

a very good tatic is to put 1 web and 2 spawn spiders, it will kill almost everything in the area, since spiders are imune to web

Your all forgetting about Summon Insects! I love this spell as it can really Bug the enemy spell casters. Image
Cartoon Law III
Any body passing through solid matter will leave a perforation conforming to its perimeter. Also called the silhouette of passage, this phenomenon is the speciality of victims of directed-pressure explosions and of reckless cowards who are so eager to escape that they exit directly through the wall of a house, leaving a cookie-cutout-perfect hole. The threat of skunks or matrimony often catalyzes this reaction.
