    just noticed you can't precast summons anymore(when it would take you over max), I recall you could when i left.
    when was casting summons nerfed? and why?this was extremely useful to try to prevent aggro and keep aggro on summons, but apparently you need to be a fighter char in order to be a caster now?

    You're only able to precast mysticism summons when you already have max followers, it's been like this since i can remember.


    You're not even supposed to be able to do this, it's been an unfixed bug since mysticism came out.

    I was precasting EV's long before mysticism, and all spells are able to be precast it isn't till you click on target that they take affect. this is the same with summons that bring up target cursor(ev's and Blade spirits). it would give you message too many pets if you clicked ground before you had space on your control count.

    I always have my EV pre-cast....not sure why you can't but I can...that's very strange! What exactly are you trying to pre-cast? Just EV? Cus it should work.

    RC, and possibly nature's fury, are the only ones I've ever been able to precast. EV's always given me the follower slot message.

    I've never been able to pre-cast EV's, but since I use RC's mostly now it doesn't matter so much.
