Is there a way to "unsummon" a summoned creature? It appears there isn't, at least from my fruitless Google searching. Would be nice to not have to wait for the summon time to run out.

  • why do you wish to unsummon the creature?

  • Say I have a summoned creature and then find a better spell? Yeah, I can wait for the old one to expire, but why should I... well, if there's a way to get rid of the old, that is. Jan 2, 2011 at 17:06
  • I recommend adding that information to your question @jae :-)

I recently picked up the game after I played the first one a few years ago. You can "unsummon" a summoned creature by using the Summon Teleporter spell. In a few seconds time you're back and forth, so that's better than waiting till the timer runs out. Just be sure that you don't have the old creature on autocast :)


I know I'm about 5 years too late, but I know the answer to this!

You can desummon a summoned creature by canceling the associated buff. There are two methods to cancel a buff.

Method 1: On top top left, on the party member UI, there will be a portrait surrounded by small icons for every effect currently on the player. Friendly buffs can be canceled by right-clicking the buff icon for the buff you wish to cancel. http://screencloud.net/v/r5x5

Method 2: In the inventory screen, there is a button labeled [view]. If you click this button, you will be shown a rendering of your character. In addition, this small window that pops up will have graphical icons for every buff currently effecting your character. As in method 1, you can right-click these buffs to cancel them. http://screencloud.net/v/l6E1


I have a feeling that casting another summon will unsummon the first one, although it's been a long while since I played some DS2. Cracking title, might have to pick it up again.

  • you do that, and the game goes "You can only have one creature summoned" at you Nov 2, 2012 at 10:24
