    It would be instersting to have the summoner "Link" to his party members to make class specific summons.  

    The link should require a life sacrifice from the source, possibly a 10% reduction in max health for the duration of the link.  The new summon will stay with the party member that is sacrificing life to maintain it.  

    A link with a Cleric could allow the Summoner to summon a Pixie that has the same healing spells as the Cleric and casts them periodically.

    A link with a Ranger could summon a duplicate pet that mimics their companion.  

    A link with a Bard could summon a band member that mimics the next song the bard sings/plays after it is summoned.  It will play this song until unsummoned. This allows the Bard to play other songs without losing the effect of the sustained song.

    A link with a Warrior could summon a third arm that carries a large spiked shield that offers additional threat and mitigation.  

    A link with another Summoner could merge their Elemental summons into a single greater Elemental.

    I am very much looking forward to the Summoner and wish it's toolboxes includes various ways of 'summoning'; I like this idea. Not sure if "linking" is the correct term that could be used but the concept is very good.

    That is a really interesting idea.... I do not like that the person has to give up life for it but everything else is very cool.... not sure if they could put something like that in now but that is really cool... basically give each member a pet to be helpful or add to damage in some way.
