out of topic but still;
The problem wasn't overlaping ability, it was the fact you were summonning only for 1 ability so you didnt need to use the summon itself. For exemple, we summon titan pop stoneskin, and instead of doing an ability that attack and let him melee until you can use stoneskin again, we just une another summon with a better ability which make other titan ability totally useless. If you remove perpetuation cost, it would partly solve some problems. Like in what mmo any type of summoner's summmon cost mp over time or anything at all, pay crap load of mp 1 time to get him out and thats it. and allow something like resting when the summon is not engaged so you dont have to call him off. there should not have only been carby that you could have out 100% of the time in ffxi.
Two avator per element please. even if some ability overlap, who cares, just chose the avator you like for for some situation, like healing tanking DD, the day of the element. I could see an avator used as first line job for tanking in the new system, so why not.
element support and role that could be done for exemple, i know ffxi summon are getting old but i know them best and they suit well for the exemple, they could use other avator with the same role. Im not saying they should add these but like 2 of each element would be good. 1 set you unlock mid low lvl, and one set mid high lvl. and some around random lvl between that for dark/light/non-elemental. some you get by quest, some fight, some buy(yuss for yojimbo).
ifrit: DD/tank , pheonix: DD/heal, salamander)
leviatan: DD/heal , Siren: Buff/Debuff, Bismark: Heal/whatever)
Shiva: DD/Whatever, + a new one maybe.)
Quetzalcoatl: DD/something , ramuh: DD/buff, ixion)
Titan: Tank/buff , brothers/minautor/maudwin/kjata: DD/whatever)
Garuda: Buff/DD, Pendemonium/Sylph: Healing whatever)
Diabolos/carby/anima/ultima(lol)/valefor/hades whatever others, there is ton of them)
Cactuar/odin/yojimbo) they need to add them.
for exemple, in wind day/weather you want to heal, rater then using leviatan you would use sylph, for additionnal healing or less mp cost for the avator spell due to the day/weather. you get the idea.
