Conjuration School[edit]

Conjuration is a school of magic that can be taken by the Mage.

Many conjuration spells summon weapons, so students of this school tend to be more physical than other wizards. Strength or Dexterity should be taken as a secondary ability score.

Level 1: Apprentice Conjuror[edit]

Apprentice Mage feature

By focusing on the study of conjurations, you learn to make your creations more deadly.
Benefit: If you roll a critical hit with an arcane conjuration power, you deal 1d8 additional damage. This includes attacks made by your conjured weapons.

Level 5: Expert Conjuror[edit]

Expert Mage feature

With thousands of hours spent designing the shape of your conjurations, you have an eye for detail. Practicing with conjured weapons, you have also been more active than your fellow scholars.
Benefit: You gain a +2 bonus to Perception and Athletics.

Level 10: Master Conjurer[edit]

Master Mage feature

The forces used to shape your creations party extend into incorporeal space.
Benefit: Attacks you make with the conjuration keyword, including attacks made with conjured weapons, ignore the insubstantial quality.

Level 11: Conjuration Action[edit]

Enigmatic mage paragon path feature

Benefit: When you spend an action point to take an extra action, you can extend the duration of effects created by your conjuration spells that would otherwise end at the end of your current turn. The effects instead end at the end of your next turn.

Level 11: Conjuration Encounter Power[edit]

Enigmatic mage paragon path feature

Benefit: You gain some awesome conjuration spell that I haven't decided on yet.
This power can use used in addition to the powers you prepare from your spellbook.

Conjuration Powers[edit]

Although any wizard can take these spells, they are of particular use to a conjurer.

The material may be your choice of wood, rock, earth, sand, water or air. The value of the material does not exceed 10 gp.

Player Options[edit]

In addition to the feats recommended for the Mage, consider the following.

If your conjurer will be using conjured weapons:

  • Conjured Weapon Focus – grants a feat bonus to damage with conjured weapons, and allows you to use your at-will spells as though you were still holding your implement.
  • Melee Training [HotFL] – if you do not have Strength as a secondary ability score, take this to use Intelligence for melee attacks rolls.
