I just tried out in 0.15.2 how many summoned creatures I got by this spell. And was surprised that it were 8 green rats and not as supposed only 4 shadow creatures. -- Bwijn (talk) 01:07, 6 January 2015 (CET)

If you read the full article, you'll notice it says "Band members don't count towards the summoning cap of 4." That means that out of those 8 rats you got, only 1 summoned monster slot was used. This is one of the reasons why Shadow Creatures is delightfully overpowered :P --MoogleDan (talk) 14:03, 6 January 2015 (CET)
Well, well, so band members don't count indeed! Now I know. I have recently used the spell extensively, and no, IMHO it's not at all overpowered. It's very short-lived creatures, popping away like soap-bubbles, but in the terrible Vaults where at every corner another convoquer summons seemingly unlimited hordes it's just allright. And confronting Mara or Jory without this spell is much more deadly. -- Bwijn (talk) 15:01, 7 January 2015 (CET)
