I have the spell, but I've found summons are fairly useless as 95%+ of my combats are over in one or two rounds.

I'll see if I can find a fight where I can cast it.

Yes you need to have three other master classes before archmage opens up.

As far as I can tell summoning is pretty useless for me since the summoned mobs use opportunity points just like everyone else. So all you end up doing is watering down the ability to physically attack mobs.

If you have two fighters and a rogue in your party (like I do) you run out of opportunity long before you even exhaust the attacks you have slotted.

Yes. The Archmage skill indicates that is the requirement when looking at its tooltip, so I'm not sure why it would be in doubt.

Do they? I've only summoned a shade so far, and that used spell points rather than opportunity for everything except movement.

I have seven opportunity now, so I don't usually worry about running out of opportunity.

Up to eight now. Two are given as quest rewards, and two are obtained through capstone skills.
