Target Player..then cast your summon pet

Level 81 mage.

Quick reminder:

Target the player, get the buff on yourself, then you cast your summon pet spell.

After I did that, my BLUE con level 81 Air Elemental went to YELLOW on me, before I used Burnout Viii. His hit points went from 22k to 27k. I used the prime elemental symbiosis spell to damage him to get the values. I.e. 1391 damage = 5% drop in hp... 1391/.05 = 27820. Cuz 5% of 27820 is = 1391 damage.

When I had tried it before targeting the elemental, and NOT on myself, he stayed BLUE con.

So tldr: target player, use shard, THEN cast pet summon spell. = BUFFED pet.
thank you

You've got it all wrong. This is a focus effect used by the CASTER, not a buff for the pet. Take this Shard of the First Minion, target yourself and click. THEN summon your new, more powerful pet. The effect works in the same fashion as Sphere of Swirling Flame but is 2.25 times more powerful.

I cast it tonight and it stuck on my level 83 SK pet.

Spell icon on pets reads:

Spell: Spire Servant
Caster: Demonicspawn
Spell Effect: Increases the power of certain
summoned and animated servants.

No, these effects will only work on Mage, Beast and Necro pets. From my understanding its not really a buff on the pet but the effect causes you to summon a different version of your pet. Those 3 classes are the only ones that have the alternate pet versions available in EQ programing.

how to summon?

it is summoned through the cauldron which is a item created by a lvl 80 mage spell. That cauldron has like 8 items which can come up and a long recast timer
Sometimes it will be shard so it is mid rare of course always when you want one some other crap comes out if the cauldron :-)

Know how to use this properly

So I cast this on myself before summoning a pet or on a pet I already have as a buff?

Anyone know or speculate?

You should cast it on yourself before summoning a new pet. While you have this buff on you, the pets you are summoning are focused, as if you a wearing an Item with this petfocus.
