Summons are back in Final Fantasy XV and they’re bigger than ever. Of course the question remains how do you use them?
The first thing you’ll need to do is obviously unlock them. Each summon or ‘Astral’ as they’re referred to here has to come in contact with Noctis. This all happens during the main plot. After obtaining them, you will need to summon them based on certain conditions. The reason why is because the Astrals are ridiculously over powered and should be used if things get too dicey.
TITAN: When an ally is incapacitated.
RAMUH: When the battle has gone on for a long time.
LEVIATHAN: When Noctis is in the “danger” state.
SHIVA: When all other Astral summoning conditions are applicable.
And there you have it. The summon doesn’t always appear but be sure to have that L2/LT button ready the moment you start seeing particles and the music shifting.
