Friend Summons Guide

This is a simple lookup on what summons should be included in your Friend/Support Summons tabs for your friends to use. Essentially, it lists what sees regular use nowadays, and aims to help clean up messy friend summon lists to make grinding more relaxed for us all.

What you need to know

  1. If it's not listed here, don't include it. No one's gonna take a useless summon as their pick for a fight. Because of this, open slots are better than filling every space with something random.
  2. If a specific uncap level is mentioned in the lists below, do not slot any lower.
  3. If you have no summon that would go on Slot 1, you can put the Slot 2 summon in Slot 1. Do not swap their order otherwise.
  4. Misc 120%/140% elemental summons (eg. Summon s 2040261000.jpg Grimnir (Summon), Summon s 2040302000.jpg Poseidon, the Tide Father, etc) can be used in the empty slots if you're low rank, but should be phased out the moment you realize you're not taking them yourself (generally when you start making M2 grids).
  5. Please for the love of god don't use this page to be an elitist jerk over a video game I beg you.

Varuna 5★ or Leviathan Omega 5★

Slot 2 Summon m 2040114000.jpg
Summon m 2040290000.jpg

Notes: Your XP summon goes in slot 2 even if it's not Kaguya to keep consistency for everyone and make it easy to find them.
Summon s 2040290000.jpg Nobiyo is free from side stories, which renders Black/White Rabbit entirely defunct.


Earth Best Option Second Best

Luminiera Omega 5★

Notes: Non-4★ Thor can be slotted if you intend to do SUBHL in co-op groups which may have a player doing the "Thorbot" role.


Dark Best Option Second Best
Slot 1 Summon m 2040090000 02.jpg Summon m 2040046000 02.jpg

Hades 5★ or Celeste Omega 5★

Summon m 2040090000 02.jpg

Hades 5★

Slot 2 Summon m 2040003000 03.jpg

Bahamut 6★

Summon m 2040046000 02.jpg

Celeste Omega 5★

Notes: Bahamut Transcendence level is irrelevant for this table. Bahamut 250 is better than 210, but 210 is enough for it to be the best pick already.
For friend summon purposes, levels between 210 and 250 provide no tangible benefit.


Misc Only Option
Slot 1 Summon m 2040158000.jpg
Slot 2 Summon m 2040157000.jpg

Notes: Qilin slot 1 and Huanglong slot 2 is done purely for convention and consistency between players to minimize misclicks when grinding in a flow state - this specific order was picked because HL sees more use in this situation, so it was set closer to the confirmation button. Make sure yours are in this order - only you can prevent fatal Qilin in OTK incidents.
