DDO pets (Summon monster spell)

Updated on October 6, 2012

A list of all the magic creatures you can call to your side. The cleric, favored soul, sorcerers, and wizard class all get access to the Summon Monster spell. It was improved in DDO Update 7 to include many new monsters.

The Broccoli Witch to the left is unfortunately not an ingame pet. She's very popular with players after a few "Broccoli or the Beholder?" ads for Dungeons and Dragons Online, like this video. More of them are listed on this lens.

Every creature made by the DDO summon monster spell has its own comment section. You can see what other players think about it, and share your own opinion. :)

Are you glad they added more monster summons in Update 7?

9 - Eladrin, Elemental, Hezrou.

Which of the level 9 familiar spells do you prefer?

Hezrou

A beefy, strong, demon you can call to your side. This is the most popular summon monster in the game. He's huge. That might look cool at first, but it's also a liability. Have you ever tried to see what's happening when there's a few hezrous on the screen? It's impossible.

This monster can teleport straight to your enemies. Sounds awesome, right? Not always. I've witnessed a one second wipe in the "Bastion of Power" quest. The hezrou ported to a bunch of sleeping devils, died to them, then around 30 of them all teleported to us.

Special abilities: Teleporting.

      This one is a known zerker mob.. It hits one mob then goes off to hit another before you know it it is death and you have 20 angry mobs on you. Oh it also use some kind of chaos hammer spell

    Elder Fire Elemental

    Perfect for any quest with a lot of frost creatures. This DDO monster summon will tear right through "The Enemy Within", "Prey on the Hunter", and "Ghosts of Perdition". She doesn't get the Aura of Flame special ability most Fire Elementals have.

    Special abilities: Element Damage (fire), Element Resistance (cold).

        Does 30 damage fireballs. Its kinda sad .. Its sp drains pretty fast too.

      Eladrin Ghaele

      The most interesting new pet in DDO Update 7. She's a strong spellcaster with a long list of spells. One of her abilities can heal herself back up to full health. A fantastic distraction for any monsters you won't have to worry about keeping alive. This summon monster can be seen in the "Running with the Devils" Vale of Twilight quest.

      Special abilities: Caster, Element Damage (fire, light, lightning), Self Healing, Stunning, Transforming (lantern).

          i haven't used her yet since im still trying to lvl with my wizard but i think i know what yall are taklking about since the only eladrin i can summon is the bralani

          he not that usful but the aggro these eladrin have is very usful if you are doing quest that could call for you being attacked and chased

          nvr knew how the eladrin worked first one i summoned but i know they are effect to anything that is evil only if they can do melee damage but would i really liked was the self healing and the endless mana they had

          that was very usful when i do raid quest and all that other stuff so i could just focus on buffing and not waist mana on attack spells since i am always usually last man standing

          but i onklty summon the eladrin when i am in party's so when everyone dies i can casat invisibilkity and get the stone to bring every one to shrine

          no longer any useful, as the moment they try to teleport to you due to being to far away. they cause insufferable lag. the only way to stop the lag is to log off and log back in

          The best for this level. can heal herself. casts level 16 bless spell on anyone near her, super dmg against undead. very durable. and best part is she is also VERY vicious, she will chase enemys down. if you want a pet in a quest that is sure to take the agro she is it. she will draw agro like a magnet. not good for some quests. but very handy

        Orthon

        One of the few ranged summons available to people who aren't playing a Pale Master. He'll fire his crossbow at people before teleporting over to melee. Didn't seem very strong.

        Special abilities: Cleaving Hits, Element Resistance, Teleporting.

            Unfortunately this summon does not perform a modified stunner move on enemies, nor does it ragdollize when hit. It also lacks the ability to kill legends, with absolutely no heavyweight championships under its belt. Disappointing.

          Bezekira

          The standard level 8 summon before update 7. It's not very special, but it does have a high chance of evading enemy attacks. Update 15 apparently reduced its chance of tripping your enemies quite a bit.

          Special abilities: Incorporeal, Tripping.

            Greater Air Elemental

            This dungeons and dragons online pet is a lot of fun to watch. He currently flies around the battlefield, knocking down everything in it's path. Imagine there was a living grease spell, and it always worked? That's what the air elemental is. We can safely assume this is a bug!

            Special abilities: Element Damage (lightning), Element Resistance (lightning), Stunning.

              Huge Earth Elemental

              A very impressive looking summoned pet for your caster. He's larger and bulkier than most! Very durable critter. He can use his Earthgrab ability in a fight. This stuns the monster for a very short time. Any attack on an enemy with earthgrab is an automatic critical hit.

              Special abilities: Damage Resistance, Stunning.

                Djinni

                You can fight them in the "Running with the Devils" quest. He's very similar, and can turn himself into a tornado. This knocks down all nearby enemies and turns him temporarily invincible.

                Special attributes: Element Damage (lightning), Stealthy, Transforming (tornado).

                    Decent survivability due to his regeneration. Sometimes pulls out a bow to range targets. Otherwise, he'll charge straight into enemies bashing them with a club.

                    Special abilities: Element Resistance (fire), Regenerating.

                      Eladrin Bralani

                      Like the djinni, he can transform into a tornado. He's pretty much the same thing, but weaker. This bralani eladrin summon has one small difference. He can heal himself up with cure spells.

                      Special abilities: Element Damage (lightning), Self Healing, Transforming (tornado).

                          He can also heal you, that is my main reason for choosing him when I solo. 34 hp seems to be the # that always pops up, this doesn't change when I put an Owls bless on him so I think his casting stat might be Cha not Wis like I thought.

                          He basically never dies and throws lightning bolts.

                          Awesome summon.

                        Large Water Elemental

                        Very cool looking monster. Works well against their fiery sisters, and any other flame infested area. Unfortunately, these water elementals don't get the "Freezing Spray" that increases the damage of DDO's cold attacks. Polar Ray and other frost spells probably would've been too unbalancing if players were given that aura.

                        Special abilities: Caster, Element Damage (cold), Element Resistance.

                          Uses earthgrab every so-often. Stone fingers rise from the ground, trapping an enemy if they don't make a save. This rock prison lasts for several secnds. Anyone attacking an earthgrabbed foe will critical hit.

                          Special abilities: Stunning.

                            Umbral Worg:

                            This shadow dog is one of the more unique pets in DDO. He has the "shadow taint" ability many undead have. Anyone who dies after being attacked by an umbral worg will turn into a shadow themselves. Unfortunately, unless you're a Pale Master, this new creature tries to attack you. Probably a bug.

                            Special abilities: Incorporeal, Multiplying, Phasing, Stealthy.

                                I play a Palemaster with Death Aura activated most of the time ... so this guy will constantly be healed while near me increasing his survivability

                              Bearded Devil:

                              Exceptionally good for killing things! He'll teleport straight into a crowd and cleave them all immediately. I'd recommend this devil summon monster spell for any casters who need a quick distraction. He works best with a character who can use non-mesmerize crowd control.

                              Special abilities: Cleaving Hits, Element Resistance, Sneak Damage, Teleporting.

                                  Bearded devil so rocks! He teleports right into the mobs before they can agro you. They all focus on him while you start tossing area of effect(AOE) spells to hit all of them. by the time they start to agro you they are dead.

                                  In a more 1v1 combat I would go with the elemental and his earth grab, toss a fire wall on the mob while he is immobilized then start blasting.

                                  The dog? well I haven't really found a use for but by no means am I an expert.

                                    This level's original monster summon in Dungeons and Dragons Online. She's very big, but doesn't have much durability. Tries to use ranged attacks often. They don't do much damage, but it could help be a distraction until the fiendish spider dies. Attempts to web sometimes.

                                      Summon Monster III has three choices. Unlike most creatures, they all go into sneak mode immediately when summoned and after battles. This means they won't make a good distraction, but they could catch some of your DDO enemies unaware.

                                              Been reasearching for days..

                                              And it seems the White Wolf got replaced by a Dire Bat...

                                              The only summons that drew my attention are the Gray and White Wolves.. and I don't want to create a Ranger for just that..

                                            2 - Bat, Scorpion, Spider.

                                            You can pick from these magical pets when using the Summon Monster II spell.

                                            You prefer this monster:

                                            Fiendish Bat

                                            It is a lot less annoying than the actual bat monsters we fight in DDO.

                                            Special abilities: Fast Moving.

                                              Fiendish Scorpion

                                              Spends most of it's time underground. I don't think he's useful at all. May poison enemies?

                                              Special abilities: Burrowing.

                                                Black Widow

                                                A very useful creature at the level you can get her. She uses webs to crowd control your enemies, getting them stuck in the sticky strands.

                                                  1 - Dog, Rat, Spider.

                                                  Which of these pets is your favorite?

                                                  This one is fun to have around. Not because he's useful, but he -is- entertaining. Hops around trying to attack your enemies.

                                                      uses long range attack. It looks like acid

                                                      he also uses long range sometimes

                                                    Celestial Dog

                                                    The original low level pet. Hides immediately after being summoned. Not very useful at all.

                                                    Special abilities: Stealthy.

                                                        Not very useful? He trips people sometimes which is very useful.

                                                      Giant Rat

                                                      Straight out of Korthos Island! Is there anything unique about him? Comment below so I can add it to the DDO summon monster guide.

                                                          The highest damaging of the 3, no special attacks I've noticed, best for pure damage I think.

                                                        Any creatures you wish you could make with the DDO summon monster spell?
