Recently I've discovered the joy that is summoning creatures. I used to regard it as a waste of time compared to other spells and the lack of any immediately awesome selections coupled with incredibly short duration.
Then I discovered the Lantern Archon, and now I love using Summon Monster V with my Cleric to summon 1d4+1 of these guys and then cast Blessing of Fervor on them.
That gives me 3 ranged touch attacks per Lantern Archon. And I've roped the party Witch into memorizing the spell as well so we can cast it together to give me even more archons.
Problem is they kind of bog down combat. So I need ways on keeping their actions absolutely as quick as possible. Suggestions?
Also: Totally not relevant question, but is it possible to get a Lantern Archon into my service permanently? As far as I can tell the only way would be to be a level 20 Conjuration specialist wizard (not a feasible option).
