^^ It wasnt really speculations, Yoshi-P had already confirmed it in a few Japanese interviews, you just have to be an info-addict like me and track down translations :D
Additionally, Summoners won't have access to carby but "other pets that imbue the energy of the primal." Let more speculation begin!
If it works like the rest of the jobs, Summoner beings based off of Arcanist WILL have Carby. It says flat out that ARC has Carby so SMN should in theory as well.
AGAIN, if you read ANY translations from interviews, they WON'T.
****, one of them is about 4 topics down!
Arcanist and Summoner
It’s the same as what I posted in the relevant thread regarding both of them, but I’ll just add the little comments and teases they made.
Please look forward to the auto-attack motion. (Throws the book?)
The players will be able to craft the books and they will have recipes. The class that crafts them is of course… can’t tell right now.
Summoners will not have carbuncle as a pet, but they’ll be using the primals as their source of power. However, not the primals themselves but they’ll use only a part of a primals strength. “A pet that the primals power dwells in” are Matsui’s exact words if I wasn’t mistaken.
The summoners will be able to borrow the power of 4 primals (this is what is planned till now, and could be expanded later on). The ones that are confirmed right now are Ifrit, and Garuda.
The speculation is that this will be a Carby that's infused with fire or air or stone.
