Summons in the KH franchise & my dislike for Wisdom form
Posted: Posted July 6th by -Riku-

I know I'm not the only one who thinks this, but I feel like summons are pretty useless in the kh games they appear in. One could say that they had some purpose in kh1 since Sora didn't really have over the top anime-style attacks and combos weren't as big as they were in the sequel, but they had no reason to be in kh2. With combos now being stronger than ever and drive forms being a thing, I never found myself using summons at all except for the purpose of leveling them up and getting more points in one of the Underdome cups. In the first game I only ever used Tinkerbell since she didn't replace your party and was constantly regenerating your health for you. However, I recently completed the main story for kh2 and not once did I use a summon. If they used up your MP instead of your drive gauge, I might have used them more often. Anyway, that's my little rant about summons.

Wisdom form seems like the weakest of the drive forms and the hardest one to level up (valor is the easiest one to level up imo). I understand the idea is to have one form based around physical attacks and the other is based around magical attacks, but once you run out of MP you're stuck waiting for it to fill up again. I think a good way to fix this would have been to have magic spells cost half the mp they usually consume and/or have an ability that increases the speed of which mp regenerates by at least 50%. Also, the way you level up Wisdom form is by killing heartless in the form. Sadly, the best way to do this is to wait until you get to the VERY LAST WORLD and just going to town on the heartless in that first area. You gain 1exp for each heartless you kill and it's an agonizingly slow process. I made the mistake of not completely leveling up Wisdom form before the enemies in that area changed, so my WF is only level 5 instead of 7.

Oh and one might say that Limit form is harder to level up than Wisdom due to having to complete one limit finish command in order to gain experience, but here's the thing: the battle of 1k heartless is a terrific place to level it up and it doesn't feel like you're just grinding because you HAVE to kill these heartless to progress the story and it just so happens to be a great place to level up limit form too.

Summons always felt unnecessary to me. I’m about 90% of the way through the first KH and haven’t used a single summons outside of the tutorial... partly because I forgot about them lol
