keeping my eidolon around for a while.


I am looking for a good way to prevent my eidolon from being banished dismissed or winking out if I enter an antimagic field. I am a 12 level summoner synthesist. I have spell resistance on, but am looking for something a bit more. Maybe buffing dimentional anchor. Or wearing magic shackles.

According to the anti magic field, your spell resistance will not help the eidolon . The SR should be on it. SR on an armor is a +2bonus.

The SR is an evolotion of the Eidolon. I am looking for something a bit guarenteed then relying on SR then making my save to keep him around. Especially dealing with antimagic fields.

I think it's debatable whether or not an Eidolon is affected by an Antimagic Field in the first place. First of all, Antimagic Field specifies that it suppresses spells, spell-like abilities, supernatural abilities, and magic items. Summoning an Eidolon isn't specified as ANY of these, only that it's a "ritual" performed by the summoner. Secondly, part of the Eidolon's rules are:

"In addition, due to its tie to its summoner, an eidolon can touch and attack creatures warded by protection from evil and similar effects that prevent contact with summoned creatures."

You could argue that Antimagic Field falls into the category of "similar effects that prevent contact with summoned creatures."

So it's debatable whether or not AMF even affects eidolons. If your GM is set on ruling that it does, the only ways that I know of countering AMF are:

1.) Make your Eidolon too big for AMF (huge or bigger)
2.) Have your Eidolon stay away from the AMF and use only physical/extraordinary ranged attacks against the AMF user
3.) High Spell Resistance

There may be other ways I'm not thinking about. Good luck!
