    Karaha-Baruha's Animastery is unrelated to the Summoner job, the practice of which actually originates in the Far East. Karaha-Baruha sought to go beyond the simple act of summoning as practiced by those who have been granted that power by the avatars- what he wished to do was actually control and dominate the avatars themselves, against their will if necessary, something he called "complete summoning". Rather than simply call fourth a mere fragment of Fenrir's power, he called the real Fenrir himself. So don't count on him giving you any tips relevant to your job
    Unless he teaches you how to do a complete summoning, yourself. Then SMNs could summon the real Garuda or Leviathan Prime for some royal ass kicking, but will take damage in proportion to the avatars. So you'd pretty much have to make sure your avatars don't die, or you will, too.
    Maybe, but that would be like a whole different job, and there'd be the nagging issue that only one player on the entire server could have any one specific avatar summoned at a time. Plus I don't think Karaha-Baruha would be the best teacher- he wasn't good enough to keep the sheer power of Fenrir from tearing him apart, after all.

    Why don't you try to keep the power of a god from tearing you apart.

    It's bad enough I have dolls following me around, pestering me everytime I try to collect the 10k rent from the 6 celestials. >.>

    Re: Job Profiles - Summoner

    has it been explained why we see Karaha-Baruha in the backround during the cut-scenes where we kill/receive, i forget which, the avatars?

    That's not Karaha-Baruha, that's someone else...
    I don't remember the details all that well, but he wants something from you and he usually gets it...

    It's most likely Ildy-Goldy. You can also meet him in the Tuning Out Quest.

    It is not the full metal taru, but he is in the AF quest line, iirc.

    Can the full metal taru summon without a summoning circle?

    Yes you are right. I noticed that he has a different manner in speaking when i rewatched some cutscenes. I've never done SMN AF quests though, so i don't know about the other one.

    Re: Job Profiles - Summoner

    I forgot the name of the taru but he was a classmate of Ildy-Goldys that is seeking to collect the powers of the avatar 1 small piece at a time. When you're given a piece of the avatar at end of each fight - you trade it to the doll for gil/items or you tell him to buzz off and forge a pact. He tricked Ildy-Goldy into that room beneath windurst that sucks all the magic out of a person's body (the one the sybil puts Ajido-Marujido in during mission storyline) which left Ildy-Goldy without magic.

    If you've done the smn af storyline, the taru is slightly less belligerent and stutters when he pesters you for the sliver of energy.

    I can't see anything as well, was it deleted?

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    You know, I had been wondering about this myself and saw since the question had already been asked I'd wait and see if someone knew the answer. When I saw a moderator had replied I checked the thread, assuming there would be a useful reponse to the question. Guess I was wrong.

    The forum category ecompasses one page in it's entirety and you are worried about necrobumping? "Oh noes, he shifted a thread a whole 3 spots! Where's my banhammer?!"
