Funny, I was just thinking about this actually - every time I see a pet in OSRS I start pondering..

Now normally I'm one of those OSRS players who likes things to stay as original as possible (I was against GE for example), but for some reason my mind keeps coming back to summoning. I had a ton of fun with it when it was first released, before summoning batch 2 even.

I think if done correctly, which I have no doubt that the OSRS team could do, summoning in OSRS could be pretty cool. As long as it is not made to be OP, which I don't think it would be. I'd love to see summoning creatures in their original graphical glory, and even hear that annoying whine sound that calling your pet greyhound used to make.. ;)

If summoning were re-released I may even give up being a level 3 skiller just to be able to train it again. :)
Playing on a small screen builds character.

That's what I've been saying this whole time. Finally, someone who just GETS it, you know. I get that Summoning was a bit unbalanced back in the day (I know these folks won't LET me forget it.) but I think it can be fixed up to be something we can all enjoy.

Thank you for your support!

If summoning was released in 07 today it would be really overpowered, I would like to suggest finding all the positive things the people liked so much about summoning that would not destroy the state of PVM, and creating an amazing new idea using those core elements, I don't see why we need to follow the path of RS3 it is a different game after all and we should treat it as such. P.S I did really like summoning back when I played Pre-EOC.

Ayyy, you get it too! Yeah, my original plan was to bring back the original version since I thought that would be the most agreeable but as time went on, finding the pros and leaving out the cons is becoming more appealing and I've become more open to a OSRS version of the skill. I wrote up a reworked version of the skill on page 20 of this thread that I think you should check out and let me know what you think and what you think could be improved.

I think if we could poll individual aspects of the skill, we could find out exactly what those positive elements are and the community would be able to pick and choose what stays and what goes. I think that would be a fantastic compromise solution to this. I just want to get Summoning polled at the very least, you know? Get that chance and see if it passes or not. We got D claws and revs so who knows what could happen.

That all being said, it's come to my attention that people are fairly close minded and if they even hear the word "Summoning", they'll cover their ears and not listen to anything more after that. It has also come to my attention that people what a new skill, not an old one. So I'm currently putting together a suggestion on Reddit for a new skill called "Spiritualism" which takes the core concepts of Summoning and makes something new out of it. I'll likely tweet it to Mod Ash as well and find out what he thinks of it. Course, I won't abandon Summoning but I think it'd be a smart move to branch out.
