Casting Mystic summons is not blocked preemptively by follower count

1. Cast Rising Colossus or Animated Weapon when your follower count can't support it
2. Observe casting continues
3. Target any location
4. Observe follower count warning

This is inconsistent with all mage summon spells, which perform the follower count check prior to initiating casting so you don't waste your time.

  • I actually like this and consider it a feature of Mysticism. It allows you to pre-cast RC and drop it again instantly, without having to wait for another spellcasting like you do with Magery.

    I would love to be able to precast EV and wait for one of the current ones to die before unleashing the new EV.

    "spellweaving followers works the same way as mysticism, so they should probably change magery to be in line with all other schools"

    “On second review, it would be better for both spellweaving and mysticism to perform the timer check prior to casting, for both summon fey/fiend and summon reaper and moreover for the spell ATTUNEMENT, as the bushido spell evasion performs a timer check prior to cast. As does war cry and ethereal burst and other masteries”

    Hope nothing will be altered. I will hate to cast RC (quite slow spell) when mob is charging against me. 
    So I agree with @Arroth_Thaiel ;   . It is not a bug, it is a feature.

    Having it precast has a disadvantage, you cant cast something else without that canceling. Would be nice for EVs to precast.  At 100 skill they fail quite often so that would help mages less than 120 have 2 EVs out.  Also many mobs dispel them so at 100 skill you sometimes have 0 out since you have to wait to cast.

    "Summon fey/fiend currently does not pre-emptively check follower count, with these spells there is no reason to precast as there is no cursor target.
    expected result: for summon fiend/fey to premptively check follower count before attempting to cast"
