    Time:

    Issue Description: First Circle summons from the Exterminators Guide (Vermin Theme) gives a Giant Ant Soldier. It's capable of annihilating most things one the lowbie quests and at a glance appears to be much tougher than the stag beetle (Stag has more HP though).

    On some quests I've tested it on, the quest seems to scale in response, giving more enemies and significantly more XP. Examples being Sticky Situation, Graveyard Ops, Wyrm Cave, Darrendaal's Ring and Sewer Kobold's. Using two Ants my Druid (Druid 4/ Ranger 1) netted around 3k XP on Sticky Situation and Graveyard Ops alone. Did Wyrm Cave as level 6 (5 Druid/ Ranger 1) netted a little bit under 1000 xp.

    In all cases once Ants were summoned and given Bark and insulation, Druid didn't have to lift a finger, except to occasionally heal them or summon a replacement.

    Included screenies of the 2nd (Stag Beetle) and 3rd (Garg. Centipede) Circle summons for comparison.
