Way of Dark
Summon Skeleton - Summon a skeleton to fight for you. Max 1 simultaneous.
Cast time: 0.75 seconds
Cooldown: 8 seconds
With a pet at your side, everything is a little easier. As a mage-type, you'll find they distract your opponents and keep you out of harms way. Your skeleton will fight and die for you and can take a few hits to boot. However, it's not very smart and cannot defend itself very well. So don't expect to be out of the frying pan forever.
