The Wizard skill, "Familiar", summons a small helper that helps you attack enemies and cannot be hit. There doesn't seem to be a spell duration on it (no icon indicator as far as I can tell), but I have noticed at times that it would disappear and I would have to re-cast it. Beyond the obvious situation of dying causing it to disappear, in what other situations would I have to re-summon the Familiar? Does using a Waypoint or a Town Portal cause it to disappear? Or is there an actual duration to the spell involved?


Do you not have advanced tool tips turned on?

Familiar has a duration of 5 minutes.

Summon a companion that will attack your targets for 20% weapon damage as Arcane. This companion cannot be targeted or damaged by enemies and lasts for 5 minutes.

  • Didn't even realize that was an option. Thanks!
