    I used Odin because it looked cool. Or I guess I used Sleipnir.

    No, not really. Like FFXII, Square has attempted to "balance" them so much that they're useless. In early games, they were massive nukes that took a lot of MP, but dealt more damage than anything else you could do. Now they do mediocre damage, and the cost is removing two of your party members. It's not worth it. They're more complicated, and less reliable, than just using your party.

    They have their uses in the postgame. Farming Adamantoises and killing Long Gui was made much easier and more efficient with Eidolons.

    I want to kill things in a racecar, so no.

    I used everyone's about once each but that's about it. Honestly summons have been a disappointment in all FF's since FFXII.

    Efes Ephesus (Adamantoise)

    They're great for when you want to kill an adamantoise at lower levels, and for saving you from sudden death. They also helped on a few boss fights, such as that (SPOILER)giant flower turtle thing you fight with Lightning and Hope on the elevator, whatever it's called. But I don't use them on a regular basis because it just feels like a waste of time.

    I probably would have used them more if the game actually let you summon eidolons belonging to any of your party members instead of limiting you to only the leader's.

    I only used Sazh's and Vanille's against Adamantoise until my party was proficient enough to do it themselves. Still infinitely more useful than the Espers in FFXII.
