Summoner Class Build Engravings And Stats

Lost Ark Summoner Build
Summoner – Summon Gameplay

Most classes tend to have engravings that are vastly different from each other. An example of such is the Glaivier, where both her engravings lead to different playstyles. But with the Summoner, the class engravings can go hand-in-hand to and won’t affect playstyle too much. This approach is quite similar to the Deadeye.

Master Summoner

Summoner can cause a lot of elemental damage through her skills, especially if chosen the elemental tripods. If your Summoner Build has adapted to dishing out a lot of elemental damage, then this engraving is for you. Master Summoner uses one of the Elemental Orb and instead increases all elemental damage by +15%. This is good if you don’t plan on using the class identity skills to summon many of the summons through the orbs. Otherwise, you should consider the next engraving.

Communication Overflow

This engraving allows you to increase the summon duration for Marinin, Pauru, Elcid, Shurdi, and Kelsion by +30%. It will also increase the damage by 20%. As the build is focused heavily on the summons, this engraving is preferred by many users.


For your stats, you can go for something like this:

Crit 0
Specialization 1400
Domination 0
Swiftness 1000
Endurance 0
Expertise 0

The 0 represents the less important stats; you can invest in them freely.

With that, you know quite a lot about the Summoner Build. She can be quite a strong class if built right. But if you are still looking for a better class, consider reading our Lost Ark classes Tier List to get a better idea of which class works best for PvP and PvE segments in the game.
