If you spotted last week’s new Summon Eidolons Breakdown, you probably saw this one coming: it’s time for the Summoner Handbook.
I remember the Summoner in PF1. I remember getting Haste way too early and the other problems they could cause. I remember synthesist summoners having twice as many hit points as anyone else on top of fast healing and impressive damage output. I remember how crazy they were.
The new version of the Summoner isn’t as crazy as it was in PF1, but it’s still very cool. You get to live your dream of summoning a monster that fits nearly whatever you can imagine, building your own best friend from the ground up to work alongside you against whatever dangers the world has to offer.
I have a question regarding the Magical Understudy feat option. You mention both the Summoner and the Eidolon attacking with cantrips in a turn using Act Together to reach up to 5 actions in a turn. However, Act Together really only adds a single action, I can’t seem to find a way where both the Summoner and the Eidolon could use offensive cantrips that both cost 2 actions to cast. Am I missing something or have I not read that correctly?
Is it possible to reserve the action you get from Act Together and use it with the left-over action to cast a cantrip with a 2-action cost?
I apparently misinterpreted the text of Act Together. You’re reading it correctly. I mad updates to the handbook accordingly.

Hey there, can a multiclassed Summoner/Magus can use Spellstrike along Act Together?
As I read it, I don’t see anything who could prevent it.
If yes, you could cast a 2 actions spell and strike with your Spellstrike and have your eidolon strike 🙂 (the Spellstrike action would be the 2 Action activity, and the Eidolon’s Strike the 1 Action activity that way)
Yes, I believe that is allowed. I can’t think of any reason why it wouldn’t be.
