Summons an extraplanar elemental and binds it to a durable shell forged from the caster's own magic. The servitor is capable of unleashing some of the destructive spells known to its creator, though the strongest and most volatile of magics cannot be imbued in this fashion.

You can sustain at most one creature summoned by this spell.

Spellforged Servitor is a level 7 Conjurations/Summonings spell which calls a spellforged servitor into existence. This is a fairly durable, omni-resistant construct which knows several Conjurations spells, chosen from your own list of known spells. The spellpower of its spells is based upon the spellpower with which you cast Spellforged Servitor in the first place.

It will know up to 5 of the following spells (if you have them memorized and can cast them with a greater than 50% success rate):

Strategy

  • As its offenses are based upon the destructive magic you know, casters specializing in Conjurations who dabble in Summonings are much more likely to benefit from this spell than are summoners who dabble in Conjurations.
  • You can control which spells your servitor will know by only having certain spells memorized. A servitor whose only actions are to cast Orb of Destruction, Iron Shot, or Lehudib's Crystal Spear will be much more effective than one who occasionally throws Magic Dart and Sandblast into the mix. Strongly consider forgetting any low level spells you don't use anymore.
  • Servitors may not have very high HP or defense, but they come with excellent elemental resistances, allowing them to endure significant assaults. A lucky spellforged servitor with a solid spell set can defeat a titan or orb of fire in a straight fight.
  • Conjure Ball Lightning is even less safe in a servitor's hands than it is in yours. Make sure to have electricity resistance if you choose to arm your servitor with the spell.
