I’m trying to build a character for a 4e game but I’m having trouble picking a class and powers that go with the feel I’m looking for.
I want to effectively play a Final Fantasy style or a Tales of Symphonia style summoner wherein they have some minor powers but mostly can focus on calling summons out and having them control the field. Effectively one PC chanting or in a trance.
I want the powers to feel generally more innate to what they are than learned and generally I’m more in favor of versatility than out and out power. I don’t really care too much about the source but I’d prefer it to not be demonic. If it could feel either natural (not necessarily nature but inborn quality) or holy it would be best but that’s not necessary.
I’ve never really played a controller or leader before, so I would also like some tips as towards what sorts of things to try and keep an eye-out for as this type of character so I can adjust better.
