In this question: What are the requirement to gain experience in Guild Wars 2 when killing a mob?, I learned that there is a threshold damage you need to deal to a monster to get experience and a chance at loot from that monster.
I was curious if summoned "allies" damage count towards this. Some example are:
- The ghostly weapons that the guardians can summon
- The snow wurm which is a norn only skill.
- Mistfire Wolf that can be summon by everyone who bought the Digital Deluxe and above.
- Parrots that have 5% chance of being summon with the Superior Rune of the Pirates.
There are a bunch of other summons. I find that they sometimes stray and attack their own targets, particular the parrot. If i did not hit the monster with any of my weapon skills but the monster was killed or assisted by my summon allies, do I gain experience or have a chance of getting loot?
Perhaps the allies summoned from slot skills are treated differently from the allies summon by runes. The parrots that are summon by the pirate runes are surprisingly strong and can take down a regular level 80 monster by itself. I don't believe (but I could be wrong) that I am receiving any experience from that. Nor have I yet to receive loot from it.
