Naos announced some great improvements for Call Familiar. 1) Realm Boundaries will not waken the familiar to follow 2) After a familiar is sleeping for more than 5 minutes, it hides itself away and stops ambient messaging 3) When spell is active, it will stack for a full mana cost 4) Wizards with more than 40 Wizard Base Spells can use SUMMON to specify a detailed familiar. More Ranks give you better chances. Read all the details at the Officials: http://bit.ly/32saMox
